Someone asked me a question about “booty-cream” being used on the face (hemorrhoids = piles by the way), and I guess I was fortunate enough to get a friend of a friend who is actually using it to answer a few questions for me, here goes…
How old are you?
Do you have a skin care routine, if so, what is it?
I like to moisturize daily/ weekly depending on the skin care product
What is the type of cream you have been using (brand)?
Usually Nivea for Men, otherwise Hemorrhoid Cream
How did you get round to using hemorrhoid cream on your face?
I saw Oprah Winfrey talking about it and then the Doctors Show on satellite tv
How long have you been using it?
About 5 Months
What does the cream feel like?
The cream is very soothing except I find it irritates my eyes if I use to much, therefore I prefer to use it at night
In your honest opinion, what are the differences you have felt with your skin?
My skin feels more elastic and my laugh lines look more reduced the next day
Would you recommend it to anyone?
Yes, but don’t overdo it
Do you need a prescription to get it?
What is the size of the tube, how much did it cost you?
The tube is like a toothpaste tube or smaller, (3 times the size of an eye cream bottle) and the tube is roughly R30 (+ – us$3) whereas eye cream easily costs R200 (+ – US$20) for 4 times less
Is there anything else you would like to say about it?
Use very little at a time because the cream spreads a lot and try stay away from eye lids, otherwise it irritates your eyes to much.
