Seer uhm...

Rating: 2/5

I tried this for three days and ended up getting a breakout. Now, I do not know if it was because of the excessive eating of mangoes because a Vietnamese friend said mangoes is a "warm" fruit hence, eating so much can cause you pimples, or if it was because of soh much stress in my previous trip that I got so much pimples. They were just popping everywhere. I stopped using this after three to four days I think.

Something that might have also caused it is the other serum that I used it with. You see, I ran out of my day moisturizer so I thought I could be a smarty pants and experiment and use the two moisturizing serums together. You must be saying what a dumb thing to do that was, so to be fair I plan to give this serum another shot. I am just gathering up my courage again. :)

This is a very light serum, it does not feel greasy at all, if anything, it really feels like water. The skin absorbs it right away. After which you can apply your moisturizer. It has no overpowering scent, it is virtually scentless or my olfactory sense is not working anymore. Packaging is very optimal, it does not even have a cap. It has a pump that you can lock so this will allow you to travel with it. It does not spill as well. Because it's a pump, it's pretty economical, just be sure that when you pump it the bottle is angled otherwise the serum drips all over the place. :)

My Murad derma recommended this to me two years ago, when she said that my skin is dry already from all the swimming that I was doing. I did not try it two years ago but bought the product and decided to try it just now. This is very pricey. It cost me 2K++ two years ago. *gasp!* I know, what was I thinking?!

I am not trying it out in the next 21 days though because I just got in to Estee Lauder's Advanced Night Repair Concentrate and I do not want to get in the way of its wonders.

Yesterday, I bought two beauty products. One of which, I am very, very happy with. The other, I will get to try today. I will be writing about them next time though as I need to get moving. Gotta work. :)
