What is it: A hydrating/moisturising and brightening serum

What does it do:

-Replenish nutrients in the skin.
-Wrinkle Improvement

How I use it: After cleansing and toning, apply a few drops to the face and rub/tap in. This is layer-able/build-able.

Key ingredients: 7.98% Ginseng extract/ Glycerin (moisture), Camellia sinensis Leaf Extract (soothing) and Licorice Root Extract (brightening). also contains Niacinamide (brightening and anti-ageing).

Ingredients: Water, Red Ginseng Extract, Butylene Glycol, Betaine, 1,2-Hexanediol, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Glycerin, Panax Ginseng Seed Oil, Glycyrrhiza Uralensis (Licorice) Root Extract, Paeonia Albiflora Root Extract, Angelica Gigas Root Extract, Rheum Palmatum Root Extract, Angelica Pubescens Root Extract, Schizonepeta Tenuifolia Extract, Phellodendron Amurense Bark Extract, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethiconol, Bis-PEG-18 Methyl Ether Dimethyl Silane, Ethoxydiglycol, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Tromethamine, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Ethylhexylglycerin, Hydrolyzed Glycosaminoglycans, Hyaluronic Acid, Glyceryl Polyacrylate, Adenosine, Disodium EDTA, Fragrance

Fragrance?: Smells extremely potent of Ginseng – I don’t mind it!! Prefer it to something really sickly sweet (you might not like it). There is added fragrance.


Texture: I like the feel on my skin – NOT sticky, and it sunk in well without disappearing, it hydrated my skin. I did not notice any peeling. The texture is light/thin but not watery – close to gloopy.

What I like:

-Hydrates the skin

-Moisturises the skin

-I like the texture (not gloopy but close to it – means it spreads easily and isn’t water/falling off my face).

-I prefer this to the ginseng mask

What I don’t like:

-This may be too thick for very easily clogged skin / skin that is already very clogged up.

-Contains Fragrance

-Very very very small. Too little. they need to make a bigger bottle.

-Due to the Niacinamide etc, this could help with slowing down the ageing process but I don’t think this would eradicate wrinkles. It would plump up fine lines however.

Conclusion: A refreshing serum! I really like this for the texture, the smell and how it hydrates/plumps up my skin.

Overall Score: 4/5 – far too little in here – they need to make a bigger bottle). and I’m not happy that it contains fragrance.

Repurchase?: Yes I would! I like the smell and the texture of this (it’s gloopy BUT soaks into the skin fine).
