𝐃𝐞𝐬𝐜𝐫𝐢𝐩𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧: a multi-technology peptide serum that combines a comprehensive array of studied technologies to target multiple signs of aging at once. 𝐊𝐞𝐲 𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐫𝐞𝐝𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬: •a range of different peptides and amino acids to target signs of aging and hydrate the skin •lactococcus ferment lysate is an interesting fairly new probiotic ingredient. It is said to positively influence both the speed and quality of epidermal growth that results in better barrier function and overall skin quality 𝐁𝐞𝐧𝐞𝐟𝐢𝐭𝐬: •reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles •build the skin barrier •increases skin’s surface hydration •smooth textural irregularities 𝐌𝐲 𝐞𝐱𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐢𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐞: ✅: though I did not purchase this myself (gifted by my sister), I would consider repurchasing in the future and here’s why - this buffet has plumped, smoothed and hydrated my skin to a whole new level! The mixture of both peptides to smooth the skin and amino acids to hydrate the skin is a powerful duo that my young skin appreciated - it also worked really well alongside my ordinary amino acid serum (I have a review on that so do check it out)! My skin not only feels great but it’s no longer so dull and dehydrated. Since I’m quite young, I didn’t really observe the benefits of smoothing fine lines and wrinkles so I can’t speak much on that behalf. However, I do recommend this serum towards those who want to firm up droopy skin, and insanely hydrate and smooth the skin! It’s especially beneficial towards dehydrated skin.... Read more

❎: Just like most of the ordinary products, it does leave a bit of a sticky feeling but it’s honestly not the worse out of all their products, therefore it’s not a dealbreaker for me. Those who want a more comfortable experience may not enjoy this. *update - so i find this pills with many products I have now established in my routine. I mean everything I said - it’s fantastic for hydrating and repairing the skin. Is it the best? Not so sure. I’ve recently tried some other peptide serums and i really like the Purito Centella Unscented Serum! This is a still an option for me in the future since it is so accessible but I do suggest to venture out there!... Read more

💧 I use it in the morning underneath my moisturizer more so as an essence and hydration boost and something to put moisture back onto my skin lost during the time between cleansing and hydrating. Peptides are a definite benefit to skin (I have read a lot on its benefits for the eye area) and this is one of a few reasonably priced methods of using them, it all depends on what texture one prefers. I find it does well under the handful of moisturizers I use even if I leave little time for it to absorb. 💵 A bottle lasts me a few months so I personally justify its price to add to my routine despite not seeing any immediate results....

🤔 It didn’t play well with other products; some pilling and tackiness.... Read more

- This is a peptide serum with hyaluronic acids. It’s supposed to improve appearance of again and skin elasticity. I didn’t see a huge difference to my skin using this product. Light weight and absorbs quickly.... Read more

- Not something i would repurchase again as it didn’t make a huge difference to my skin. Also not the most pleasant texture to work with.... Read more

I didn’t find anything amazing with this serum besides the plumping effect. My skin feels rehydrated whenever I do apply, but I couldn’t find any other benefits on my skin type. I like how it is affordable.... Read more

This is the best hydrating serum I've ever used but unfortunately it is a bit expensive here in Malaysia as compared to Europe. I used it every night and it left my skin feel soft, hydrated and energised in the morning. It claims to be anti-aging but I couldn't appreciate it since I was only 23 yo when I used this serum. Consistency wise it's quite concentrated hence one bottle of 30ml lasted for 3 months since I only used it at night.... Read more

No bad experience using this product. But it's not targeted for my acne problem hence I decided to change to another products. A bit expensive if I want to recommend to non-working people (broke student like me esp).... Read more

Bought this on a whim because I wanted to tey more TO serums and I really enjoyed it! My skin was feeling more plump and hydrated and fine lines have definitely been reduced. Not an absolute holy grail for me, but it’s a nice serum that sticks to its claims.... Read more
