As an editor, I get to try so many different products, that I have learned not to always believe the hype. Very rarely am I surprised by how well a product actually works. Even more surprising, is when it happens after using a product which isn’t proclaiming to be the holy fountain of youth, even though as far as skincare products go, it comes closest – scarily close. What exactly is in that thing!?

What I noticed first about CHUDA’s Healing Hydrating Cream is it’s texture, which is balmy and goes on more like an ointment, than a cream. The description on the packaging states that the cream is ideal for dry, damaged or compromised skin, and I can attest to all of these. After each use, my skin looked smoothed, less stressed, and like I had gotten a full night of peaceful sleep. The most shocking surprise though, was as a result of the disappearance of my ingrown hairs and the soothing of the area. It was completely unexpected, because there’s no greater annoyance than ingrown hairs. They’re unsightly, can be incredibly painful, and very difficult to get rid of.

Turns out, Dr. Elena Ocher who developed the product, was a general surgeon who served in the Russian Navy, before furthering her studies in Neurosurgery. Having treated wounded soldiers for burns and lacerations with the medicinal Remedea Compound, both for its anti-septic and anti-inflammatory properties, she realized that the compound could be used to create a skincare product. And here we are with CHUDA.

Now that the cold months are here, when there is little moisture in the atmosphere and our skin can become irritated and dry, I know what my solution is. I am especially happy that I won’t have to add multiple layers of products or oils, just to help my skin retain moisture. Life gets really hard out in these streets, guys, when everything is frozen and your skin feels like it’s on fire. One layer of CHUDA and I’m ready for battle!
