How to use?
I use it during my evening/night skincare routine, after toner and essence, before moisturizer. I normally use 1-2 drops.



Texture:
Quite thick runny water-oil like texture but it absorbs quickly so it will not get greasy. It feel oily and kind of dries matte. It doesn't make me feel moisturized or hydrated.

Scent:
Very sweet floral smell

Ingredients:
Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (Emollient), Dicaprylyl Carbonate (Skin-Conditioning Agent), Triticum Vulgare Germ Oil/Triticum Vulgare (Wheat) Germ Oil (Emollient), Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil/Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil (Skin-Conditioning Agent), Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil/Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil (Emollient), Sesamum Indicum Seed Oil/Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil (Skin-Conditioning Agent), Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil/Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil (Skin Conditioning Agent), Sclerocarya Birrea Seed Oil (Skin Conditioning Agent), Glycine Soja Oil/Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil (Emollient/Skin Conditioner), Parfum/Fragrance (Fragrance), Tocopheryl Acetate (Antioxidant), Benzyl Benzoate (Fragrance Ingredient), Geraniol (Fragrance Ingredient), Linalool (Fragrance Ingredient), Limonene (Fragrance Ingredient), Citronellol (Fragrance Ingredient), Benzyl Salicylate (Fragrance Ingredient), Eugenol (Fragrance Ingredient), Citral (Fragrance Ingredient), Anisyl Alcohol (Fragrance Ingredient), Citric Acid (pH Adjuster).

Ingredients analysis:
I don't understand why they put so much parfum/fragrance ingredients in a serum? Yes, the serum smells so nice, okay okay I got it, for marketing purpose. Kalau wangi, orang nak beli. Based on cosdna, there are 4 ingredients that are not safe, siap rating warna merah lagi which are: Geraniol, Benzyl salicylate, Eugenol, Citral. Ni semua untuk fragrance tu lah. The Wheat Germ Oil is comedogenic - tends to block the pores, and boleh menyebabkan jerawat. Must avoid sebab boleh cause breakouts. 

How I feel:
I bought this a long long time ago, because it claims to moisturize and hydrates my skin. Since my skin is dry (sometimes very dry), I really need a moisturizing serum. However, this product disappoints me.

Ok lah, it absorbs quickly, doesn't feel greasy. Tapi bila pakai, terus rasa muka macam a bit gatal. Tapi tahan je lah. Macam mild je.

Tak rasa moisturizing or refreshing langsung. Terus rasa dry gila. I mean, bila pakai oil, should rasa a bit berminyak lah, but no, terus rasa kering gila. I DON'T UNDERSTAND.

I really thought this product works for me, dah lah The Body Shop, dah lah quite expensive (nasib baik ada sale masa beli ni)

And terus naik dry patches, I'm not so sure sama ada sebab produk ni atau produk lain, tapi banyak dry patches. Terus kena pakai heavy moisturizer.

Recommended?
No? Because it doesn't work for me, at all :(

That's all. Thanks for reading!

  1. Takut nak try. That's why I am quite weary about new products. May make my skin worse. It is already very troublesome, right now.

  9. Ohh..I never knew they have Vit E Serum. Too bad your skin is sensitive to it... I only tried their body butter long time ago since my skin is quite dry.

  10. Exactly like how i felt before. I used the vit e night cream and also their vit c moisturiser before but I stopped using it halfway since my face will become itchy and rasa pedih gila ( this happened after i used it for awhile). Prolly, my skin is just sensitive? But I totally agree with you, expensive and doesnt work wonders at all (at least for me) and im also a bit sceptical about the fragrance tho haha
    Btw, love all you reviews ❤❤
