An advanced corrective serum suitable for all skin types to fade hyperpigmentation, correct dark spots and discoloration, heal acne scars and sun damage for a brighter, smoother, more even complexion.
Hello everyone! My time off from
reality the blogging world has sadly come to an end. I do feel a twinge of guilt for not diving straight back into my blog, for what seemed like an eternity, but it was only 3 weeks. But before I babble on about my adventures and mishaps, I want to bring to your attention a serum that trekked 1 ocean, 4 cities, and 5 flights with me.
My biggest skincare battle have been my mild breakouts. Luckily, my flare ups have lessened the older I’ve become but they still remain and generally occur premenstration. Finding products to clear up the aftermath (i.e. acne scars and dark spots) has been a battle I had yet to win… until now. I initially couldn’t bring myself to purchase a night serum and, much more, for nearly $100. Though as time passed, I started seeing more reviews pop up through the blogging circuit (other reviews here and here) that ultimately swayed me. When I finally had the mind (and funds) to purchase it, I had pretty high expectations. With all the positive reviews and high price how could I not expect something short of a miracle? Well, Yüli, you’ve kept your promises and I am pleased to say you’ve gained a loyal customer!
$98 per bottle (30 mL / 1 fl oz)
I’m glad I ordered when I did. They had just switched over to black glass (MIRON violet glass, I presume) packaging that is UV-deterrent to protect the potency and freshness of the ingredients. I was really impressed that the dropper bottle was sealed. As a customer, that’ll notify me if someone had tampered with my purchase. When I opened the bottle, the spicy and slight woodsy fragrance was quite potent with ingredients such as frankincense extract, reishi (mushroom) extract, and renewed minerals complex. It was a little unexpected for me but now I’ve come to welcome it with open arms.
The oil is light and sinks easily into the skin. When I first saw the sediment in the oil I was a little concerned. I thought to myself, “Hhmph, I wonder how that is gonna work on my face?” It’s really nothing to worry about though because the sediment actually breaks up and blends in with the serum. Every night I squeeze 3 drops in my hand, rub them together, and smooth the serum all over my face. I allow it to sink in before I go to bed every night and I wake up with calm and even toned skin.

It took some weeks before I saw any difference. The first few weeks I wasn’t really seeing anything and was becoming a bit discouraged. However, about a month into use I started noticing some of my scars lighten up or become smaller. I had a group of scars on my left cheek (cell phone) that felt like they would never go away. I am now happy to report that they are practically gone. I also breakout quite badly on both my temple areas – just above the arms of my eyeglasses. That area was getting so bad I actually started seeing slight pitting. I was desperate. Today, I still break out in that area but the slight pitting effect is now gone and I don’t believe that was a miracle. It was definitely from the help of this serum. I used to stress over the unsightly marks left on my face from a breakout and now I can rest easily every night knowing that they my face is being repaired.

This is truly a unique serum. I’ve never encountered anything that works quite like it. With that said, I might have built a slight dependency on it. As a green beauty blogger, I should try other serums once I finish this but I don’t know if I can or want to. I truly appreciate their packaging – very modern and unisex. Masculine enough for gents but luxurious for women. You might think that applying an oil on your pimples will only add fuel to the fire but it’s actually the opposite. I run to this stuff if I have a pimple. It doesn’t clog my pores or cause more breakouts. If anything, it helps speed up its phases so that I can extract it sooner rather than later. So if you’re acne prone and have normal/dry skin type then this is definitely the serum for you. But if you’re not then don’t fret because it’s actually good for all skin types!
