[REVIEW] Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect First Serum

Hi there!
I'm pretty excited for my first post after some time. It's not like I want to be in hiatus, it's just my college wifi took so much time to be functioned properly. Anyway, it's better now and today I'll be reviewing the Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect First Serum. If you've read my winter haul post, you must be already know that I purchased this. I originally planned to wait for a month to review this but since it has already shown some positive effects and I can't continue to use this in the meantime because of my face treatment so I decided to review it now.

Product Information ;
Name : Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect First Serum
Production : Made in Korea
Volume : 120ml
Price : 7350 won (after 30% discount)

I was given a free box of the cotton. :D

The serum is transparent in color.

If you notice, the cotton had two sides, the one with the lines and the other side with the hole-like design. Both functioned differently as the hole side is used to remove dead skin and you'll used the other side to dab the rest of the serum in the cotton onto the face.

Sorry for the pictures spam. I love lots of pictures..hehe :D

The bottle really reminds me of the very classic cafe so I decided to put a sepia-like picture for the header. 
It turns out pretty..haha (at least for me XD)

When the first time Skinfood released this product a while back, I thought why black sugar can be benefited to the skin? Isn't it just a brown sugar? That's what I really thought back then coz I never heard about the black sugar before so I just assume that it is a brown sugar. 

For your information, black and brown sugar are two different things, basically Black sugar is more popular in countries like Taiwan and Japan. The black sugar is said to be more healthier than brown sugar because it contain so many minerals and the people in those countries used them as the period pain reliever. You can read more here.

Regarding the above statement that I said I had to stop using this serum for a while because of the skin treatment I did, it is because the doctor advice me not to use any kind of product which had an acid ingredient (it is not the acid that could burn your skin).

Right after Skinfood released this serum, it has be the most best selling product of their product. I saw a few reviews of this product before but many of them is not in depth review so I decided to try it out myself.

The above picture is not edited except adding on some words on the picture and cropped the eye part for better view (sorry for the moist looking face coz I wore my cream in both pictures..haha)

I was surprise after using this for a week, I can see that my face is a lot glowy and brighter looking. I always had a dull skin after a long day because it's hot here and I wore make up to class. This serum really helps to improve my skin and I also noticed that it lessen my oily face especially when I wore my make up for a long time. 

I experience a bit of itchiness for my first time with this serum but it doesn't happen after the second time.I guess maybe I over scrubbed my face before that so that's why it feels like that.

The cotton that came with the serum really a lot of help. I think it is a great invention coz I used both sides to apply the serum. The hole sides really helps removing the dead skin especially when I'm too lazy to use the face brush while cleansing my face.

There is a pleasant smell of this serum which disappeared after a while. Not sure if it is the black sugar smell or other ingredients.

Other than that, the serum is non sticky, moisturising enough for me and absorbs really fast! I'm loving this overall.

I rate this for ;
for all the goodness and cheap price!

Thank you for reading!
