My Thought:
It has yellowish cream texture and a very strong chemical scent that i don't like. It doesn't absorb well to my skin and it also leaves a sticky feeling on it, I have to pat it onto my skin for a while. Although it was suggested that this serum could be used in the morning, I don't cause my skin will be oilier with this on. But I do find that my pores size has reduced even though it's not that visible.

Pros:
- Hygienic bottle
- Reduce pore size

Cons:
- Leave a sticky feeling
- Strong chemical scent
- Pricey

Rating: 2/5
Repurchase: No.

-  Anti-inflammatory

My Thought:
This is the lightest moisturizer I've ever tried. It has clear and very watery gel like texture, I don't find any scent from it. It's absorbed really well to the skin and leave my skin smooth and hydrated. But the packaging is not the easiest to work with, it's hard to control the amount of the product from the pump and sometimes it doesn't even pump out any product at all. I'm not sure about the wound healing that it claims cause when I had fresh acne scar on my skin, this moisturizer doesn't do much to it.

Pros:
- Hydrating
- Smoothing
- Hygienic bottle
- Very light, not sticky

Cons:
- The packaging
- Pricey

Rating: 4/5
Repurchase: Probably yes.

My Thought:
This is my most fave product out of the 6 products that I've tried. The texture is clay type with very fine bits in it. It has a fruity scent which reminds me of Pineapple Tart (Kue Nastar) and I really love it. It makes my skin feel really smooth after I rinse it and I feel like I can't stop touching my face :D. I believe that this mask has also made my skin look brighter and fairer as I find that my current foundation looks a bit dark on me now. It's definitely a new love for me :).

Pros:
-Brightening
- Whitening
- Smoothing
- Pleasant scent (for me)
- Mask & exfoliator in one

Cons:
- Can be very messy
- Pricey

Rating: 4.5/5
Repurchase: Yes!

YAY part 2! These look nice, but It's so expensive!

Anastacia said...

Oh! Really! I'm so in love with Advanced Bio Renewal Serum... Works so nice for my acne skin but the scent, I agree with you!

Tammy said...

Hmmm these are very interesting products! I'm quite intrigued by their claim that it promotes scar healing. I'm kind of on the fence on this topic because a friend of mine in pharmacy told me that as long as you keep the would moist, there is always less chance of scarring regardless of what product you choose to use as a moistening agent.

The Beauty Bargainista said...

sounds like a pretty good line! I will have to go check it out! :) Thanks for the awesome review! :)

Hi Dina! Being a guy, the one that helps heal wounds interests me--but only if I get to keep the scar. =)

Natalie Nguyen said...

I read both posts for your reviews and I'm so happy to know of how honest you are in them. It's not one of those reviews where I find someone liking everything... even if they point out a major flaw in a product -___-' So thank you for your indepth and honest review!!
I am so tempted to try the mask out!
