Yello Snowmeric Hydra-Boost Brightening Serum Review


Yello Snowmeric Hydra-Boost Brightening Serum Review

Hi! I'm ready to review another good locally made skincare which is the Yello Snowmeric Hydra-Boost Brightening Serum. Currently, Yello have two products which are this Snowmeric Serum and another one is the Oatmeal Turmeric Mask / Scrub (OTMS) which is good to heal acne and dullness reduce the appearance of dark spot (which I will review later inshaAllah hehe)

Product Name: Yello Snowmeric Hydra-Boost Brightening Serum

 Product Brand:  Yello Skincare

Product Type: Serum  

Size: 30 mL   

Price: RM89

You can get it here: Yello Snowmeric Hydra-Boost Brightening Serum

What is claims?

Brightening skin complexion.

Fading fresh dark marks.

Delivering sufficient hydration.

Soothing inflamed skin.

Enhancing barrier-repair.

Full ingredient list:

Water, Niacinamide, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Beta-Glucan, Ascorbyl Glucoside, Alpha Arbutin, Curcuma Zedoaria Root (White Turmeric) extract, Tremella Fuciformis extract, Xanthan Gum, Phenoxyethanol, Chlorphenesin, Sodium Hyaluronate, Allantoin, Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate

Dekat box pun dah siap bagi details ingredients tu untuk apa, ok best! Tak payah risau apa function setiap ingredients.


It comes in an opaque yellow bottle with a brown cap and a pump dispenser. I loveeeee pump dispenser macam ni sebab rasa lagi bersih, tak payah guna dropper. Sometimes orang guna dropper untuk calit calit kat muka. Jangan buat macam tu ye, jangan sentuh dropper tu kat muka. Titiskan je tau.

Ni contoh dropper packaging for serum.

And it's opaque so the product lagi terjaga and terlindung daripada sunlight. Tapi tu lah, susah sikit nak tengok berapa banyak lagi serum yang tinggal. Kena la gigih suluh sikit untuk check. Nanti tau tau je, dah habis dah serum, tak sempat nak beli baru.


It has a very lightweight gel texture and bila spread dekat kulit, rasa macam ada water droplets, and absorbs nicely into the skin without any sticky or tacky feeling. Rasa smooth je dekat kulit. 


No noticeable scent since dia takde fragrance ataupun any essential oils. Maybe bau macam a hint of gam UHU gitu je lah. Tak strong sangat. I know some people suka bau yang wangi or best macam a little bit of fragrance or essential oil tapi certain orang tak sesuai so if you have sensitive skin, you might enjoy this!

My thought on Yello Snowmeric Hydra-Boost Brightening Serum

The first time I saw the main ingredients, which are:


Beta Glucan

Alpha Arbutin

Ascorbyl Glucoside

I macam, wow, local product boleh ada semua ingredients ni? Macam too good to be true tapi kalau betul lah, best nya! And no alcohol, no fragrance and no essential oils? YES PLEASE. 

Macam conbination of three famous The Ordinary serum pun ada jugak (The Ordinary Niacinamide, The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin and The Ordinary Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution), tapi kalau nak beli all three serum, dah berapa pulak harga. This one semua in one serum, for RM89.

I use this during my morning routine, before moisturizer, after toner/ essence (kalau pakai). And don't forget to use sunscreen okay? Rugilah pakai brightening serum lepastu tak pakai sunscreen, sebab harmful UV rays boleh buat kulit jadi lagi gelap and kusam. Although it claims as hydra-boost, I don't rely on this serum for hydration. I still use my hydrating toner because I have dry and dehydrated skin. But if you feel using this as hydrator pun okay je, takde masalah kalau rasa dah cukup :)

Kenapa I prefer pakai for my morning routine? Sebab this serum ada vitamin C (Ascorbyl Glucoside) lepastu pakai sunscreen time siang, jadilah the best anti-aging and anti-oxidant combo! Lagipun malam sometimes I nak guna exfoliating products or other treatments so kita pakai serum ni time AM routine. Tapi kalau korang nak pakai AM & PM pun no problem! Hari yang I tak pakai exfoliating products, I pakai jugak lah this serum at night.

I love the texture, I love that it doesn't have any scent and I can see some improvement, lighten some of my dark spots and glowing skin. As it claims lah, it brightens the skin complexion, can fade fresh dark marks. Kalau part delivering sufficient hydration ni, if you have dehydrated skin, you might need extra hydration lah.

It also contains soothing ingredients and can repair your skin barrier. I didn't feel any rasa pedih pedih ke gatal gatal ke, rasa best je pakai dekat kulit. 

I tried searching for dupes (cheaper alternative) of this product tapi macam tak ada (either susah nak dapat, ingredients tak best sangat or lagi mahal) so I guess RM89 is worth it if you are looking for a brightening and hydrating serum. 

It's also fungal acne safe, although fungal acne is very rare and can only be diagnosed by doctors, bukan self diagnose lepas korang baca daripada google, okay?

Overall, this is a good brightening serum if you already have a basic skincare routine, and tak skip pakai sunscreen. If you are looking for something extra to brighten your skin, improve your skin complexion, you might love this product! 

Who will not love this product? Orang yang nak putih gebu dengan cepat. Ni bukan product untuk putihkan kulit ye, this is for healthy and glowy skin :)

That's all. Thanks for reading!
