No longer just a makeup trend, there’s now a unicorn root moisturizer that’s suitable for use on both your face AND your nether regions.

Unicorn makeup was a ubiquitous trend in 2017. But now there’s a unicorn product that nourishes the skin instead of simply decorating it with iridescent shimmer and pastel shades of blue, pink, purple, and pearl.

Indie skin care brand Visha Skin Care’s RejuVenating Moisturizer is a 4-in-1 cream that mimics a female hormone to help troubled skin. Visha was created by Dr. Purvisha Patel, a board-certified dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon who saw a need for multi-tasking skin care products to prevent early signs of aging.

The RejuVenating Moisturizer is meant for both facial and vaginal use. No, it won’t leave you with a glittery vagina (let’s resolve to leave that one behind, k?), but it does help with vaginal dryness and irritation. The product is excellent for the hormonally-challenged skin as a result of changes in your cycle, aging, and other imbalances.

So, WTF is unicorn root? Aletris Farinosa is an herb that grows in forests in North America and is traditionally used as a fertility aid. It can also be used to regulate menstrual periods and to alleviate symptoms of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). Dr. Patel tells HelloGiggles,

"The Unicorn Root has estrogenic properties without being a hormone. It has been used orally for centuries to help with labor pain, prevent miscarriage and to help with menstrual disorders."

She also shares the reason for creating this multi-purpose moisturizer, saying,

"Women for decades have been using prescription estrogen creams to their faces, necks and genital skin to counteract physiologic loss and the effects. They often take estrogen pills to help with the effects too. If systemically absorbed, however, there can be a cancer risk in susceptible women. I wanted to make a safe alternative that could be used topically to help reduce the effects of facial aging and vaginal discomfort without increasing blood estrogen levels."

The root’s extract works with wild yam extract and red clover flower extract to moisturize and restore balance to the skin, resulting in firmer skin with more elasticity. Other ingredients include: Jojoba Oil, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Powder, Evening Primrose Oil, Resveratrol, and a host of other fruit and root extracts.

The emollient cream can be used morning and evening after cleansing. Apply to the face, neck, and “V” area of the décolleté. Applied to the outer genital area, it will help replenish and balance natural moisture levels. Nothin’ wrong with that!
