Caudalie Anti-Wrinkle Defense Serum

This is an ok serum. Supposed to be for anti-wrinkle, but you won’t really see the difference until like years later when you see that you have no wrinkles. The serum is alright as the formulation is not oily. So it’s quite fair on my skin. But I don’t love it, as the scent is not particularly nice. It’s not bad, but Caudalie has one of the best scent in products, this is not on of them. So I don’t like it.


The Ordinary Argireline Solution 10%

Minus tax this cost £4.58 for 30ml. 

I’m just trying as many The Ordinary products I can get my hands on that’s alright for oily skin and not out of stock. So this is a wrinkle free solution. I like it enough cause it is a simple dropper solution. It’s easy to use. It’s not too heavy, but really potent. It’s not the fanciest of eye serum, but it just works. And for the price, you can’t really complain. 

By Terry Cellularose Liftessence Skin Care Samples

This is a 3 set samples. So each satchet is about 2ml. Small, but I find that a little is all you need. The scent is quite nice. Just a tiny hint of rose. It’s just very pleasant to use. I like it. Anyway, this is targeted for dry to normal skin. So it’s more suited to mature skin too as it targets anti aging, focus on lifting and firming. But I just like trying out things. And By Terry is quite an expensive brand in the market. So I just had to.

1. is the serum, an intense recovering concentrate. It’s a really nice gel serum. I really like the texture of this. It feels really nice. And just reminds me of watermelon. Not sure why. After all it’s a sheer purple pink gel. Oh, the scent kind of reminds me of Fresh, but it has that typical high end cream after scent mix in it. It takes a while to sink in. But after about 15 seconds, my skins feel quite smooth. It feels hydrated and even though I know it will get oily in a few hours time. 

2. Integral restructuring day cream. As it states as day cream, I only try this in the day. Doesn’t states that it has SPF or something. I just wouldn’t know. The cream is very thick. This will be really good for anyone with dry skin. It’s just so rich. Even though it’s thick, it’s easy to glide across the skin. It feels good on my skin, even though it feels so wrong. I know my skin will get oily maybe in a couple of hours with this. 

3. Absolute smoothing eye care. This is so lucurious on my skin. I like it. It’s just rich yet easy to apply. It sinks in fast and feels really good. It is too strong for me right now, but it’s just nice. It dries down fast, so in no time, you can start with your makeup. 

I will probably buy the serum and the eye cream. It feels nice on the skin. I like them. But I know I need actual skincare that cater more to oily skin. But if SG has winter, I will buy them. 

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

This cost £4.17 without tax. It’s a nice light glass bottle with a droplet. The look is very clean and simple and the direction is on the bottle itself. If you have a lot of The Ordinary product, it may be hard to keep track of them all. But it’s just a handful, then should not be a problem. 

This is a serum for blemish prone skin. But personally it’s just alright for me. It’s watery so it’s good as application as is easy. But it just feels so sticky on my skin. I have to wait a couple minutes for it to dry before I can use a moisturiser. So it’s not good for daily use when I’m in a rush. 

Other than that for less than $10, I think you got nothing to lose. Plus its minimal design is nice for the table top. 

Lierac Luminescence Serum

This is an illuminating serum complex corrector. Not sure how it correct, as it’s quite a sheer glowly product. It’s pretty much translucent with an after glow effect. I guess this is nice cause you can put it together with your moisturiser or foundation for an extra glow. It’s actually quite subtle, like tiny freckle of diamond. Then it will subdue down. So it won’t be so crazy. It’s nice if you want some subtle glow on your skin. I wouldn’t recommend this for oily skin. 

Origins Renewal Serum

This is quite ok. It’s good for normal skin. I use this at night and I find that my skin will be quite oily in the morning. The nice thing about this is that the serum will sink into the skin rather quickly. So it’s quite nice to use cause you can put on moisturiser next without having to wait long. The texture is also quite nice. It’s like almost gel like, but it’s not. So it’s a very smooth application. 

L’Occitane Brightening Essence

I like this better than the lotion and the moisturiser. The scent is much lighter. I like that it sinks into the skin rather fast. It will be slightly sticky, but after awhile it’s fine. I use this at night mostly as it leaves my skin rather oily in the morning. So it’s not a good serum for oily skin. But night time use is alright. And it does leave the skin rather brighter. 

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo (+) Corrective Unclogging Care 

So I’ve tried using this to help me with my imperfect skin. Doesn’t really work. I used up one tube, and I was given another 2 used tube. They were my cousins as it doesn’t work on them too so they just gave it to me. It doesn’t really do much I feel. But now when I think really hard about it and reading people’s blogs on how some product will clog their pores and such, then I realized. Maybe this is it. This help me to prevent clog pores. 

This doesn’t help with my acne. But it does sort of help to prevent new ones from forming. So I don’t know, maybe with constant use, you will get to see the result. Like if you have a mark, it sort of help a bit. I’ll just keep using it. It is not oily and help a bit in term of moisturisation. So it’s fine. 

The History of WHOO Ja Saeng Essence

  • Self generation
  • Anti wrinkle 
  • Moisturising 
  • Elasticity improvement 
  • Better complexion

It’s an alright serum I feel. It’s not overly oily. But it will leave my face oily in the end. So I only use this at night. I don’t see much difference on my face. I think it’s more suitable for normal to dry skin. So this doesn’t leave me much of an impression. 

Drops of Youth Concentrate

This is a very thick watery serum. It’s good for night time use, as this leaves my skin looking oily. Not sure how well it helps with aging, but that kind of thing, I guess you do have to use it regularly to really find out. It’s not bad, doesn’t leave my skin feeling sticky. I think it’s something you can consider if you want anti aging serum that doesn’t really cost a bomb.
