6 Sep

image

Happy Sunday everyone! This week’s theme is about moisturizers. I tried a lot of creams, serums, gels and lotions for a few years now. I finally decided to make a Top 3 post. The products mentioned below are tried and tested on my extremely oily skin. My skin’s very oily when I wakeup. I based everything from applying them nightly and observing them the next morning and throughout the day. I included the price for your reference. πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘―

Let’s start.

Review + Before & After Photos: C20 Pure Vitamin C 21.5 Advanced Serum

6 Jun

Happy saturday everyone! This serum was in my wish list. I have two bottles of it. I preordered one from Fashion Doll House. I won another bottle which was given by Wishtrend. Honestly I didn’t expect to win. I’m grateful to try an exclusive product from their website. I’ve been using this for a month already.

image

What is it?
The new and improved formula has been designed with less ingredients for more effects. Made with simpler ingredients directly from Mother Earth, the Pure Vitamin C21.5 Advanced Serum has been created with a sheer 21.5% of pure vitamin C for the maximum nourishment.

Ingredients
Hippophae Rhamnoides Water (70%), Ascorbic Acid (21.5%), Sodium Lactate, 1,2-Hexanediol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Panthenol, Cassia Obtusifolia Seed Extract, Allantoin, Xanthan Gum, Ethyl Hexanediol

My thoughts
Less sticky: It has watery texture. I can still feel some stickiness but it’s definitely less sticky than the original version.
image

Less oily skin & Improved skin tone: I have extremely oily skin. My skin is less oily after using this serum whether I’m staying in an air conditioned place or in a humid place. Note that Im in a tropical country and the temperature is really high. My skin turns dark and dull when it gets oily before. I continuously used this and I can see that my skin doesnt turn dark anymore when it gets oily.

Review: OST Original Pure Vitamin C20 Serum

22 Jun

Hello sissies & gents. Im back with another skin care review. Please make sure to read everything because I also included some tips.

I can finally review this after using for 2 weeks. I think that’s long enough to see the effects. This is one of Wishtrend‘s bestsellers. It received a lot of positive feedbacks. I already have high expectations for this serum even before ordering one for myself.

It comes with a dropper. You just need to replace the cap with this one. Here’s a tip. If you’re going to buy, make sure to choose the one with the latest manufacturing date. This is very concentrated. You need the freshest one to maximize the effects on the skin.

The serum is a bit yellowish. It means it’s still fresh. It’s much better to get this kind of shade instead of yellow, orange or brown. The lighter the serum, the fresher the product.

Packaging: It’s a glass bottle and I think it’s classy. It should be kept in the refrigerator even if it’s unopened yet. The bottle effectively maintains the cold temperature.

Texture: It’s a bit sticky. For better absorption, I dab this after I spread it all over my face. It takes more minutes to be absorbed unlike other serums. Take note of this if you are going to put makeup after. It stained my pillowcase. Maybe I applied a lot on my face that’s why it happened.

Effect: I noticed that my skin is brighter after 5 days of using it. My skin looks Continue reading
