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

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.

Very sweet floral smell

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.

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

That's all. Thanks for reading!
