It is also very cooling when applied which is a plus factor for me especially when we are located in such a humid country like Singapore. Gel type is best for those who have combination skin type!

MARINE COLLAGEN BASIC SUPER 100 SERIES (30ml, $40)

Our collagen-based beauty essence keeps the skin moist, firm, and supple. Collagen can be found in the skin’s basement membrane and dermis and accounts for as much as 70% of the latter. It provides effective moisturizing care for fine lines due to dryness and noticeable enlarged pores on the cheek due to the aging of the skin. The serum is more on the heavy side and leaves a thin film after application. Skin is more moisturised for sure.

HYALURONIC ACID (30ml/ 60ml, $32/$ 56)

A 100% undiluted hyaluronic acid essence with exceptional water retention capabilities that increases the moisture content of the stratum corneum. This hyaluronic acid is refined using bio-technology involving fermentation using lactococcus bacteria. Having tried concentrated Hyaluronic Acid before, this is quite similar but because of its 100% undiluted content, it is definitely more effective than the others I have tried before.

VITAMIN C (10ml, $39)

An essence containing 10%VC-IP (oil-soluble Vitamin C derivative) that enhances the clarity of the skin, tightens pores and leaves skin brighter. VC-IP is exceptionally stable and capable of permeating the skin, enhancing the elasticity of the skin and tightening the pores from the inside. It also has exceptional brightening properties.
Best for whitening purposes as it suppresses melanin production, preventing dark spots and freckles from sun exposure. Also aides in collagen production. This serum is thicker and on the heavy side. I love Vitamin C as they really work for my skin! Skin is visibly brighter and clearer.

EGF (10ml, $53)

This beauty essence promotes skin cell renewal and keeps the skin moisturized, firm, and smooth. It is also effective against acne scars and skin dullness, tightening pores and keeping skin balanced and clear. EGF plays a large role in the slowing down of turnover cycles as we age. The texture is lightweight as compared to the rest of the serums and is absorbed into the skin really fast.

Placenta (10ml, $44)

Rich in vital nutrients that the skin progressively loses with age, our beauty essence increases the skin’s natural moisture, firmness, and clearness. The texture is similar to Vitamin C’s, it is heavier as compared to EGF but and it keeps skin very moisturised. Apparently, Vitamin C is very important for the body as well as the skin which is what we are lacking.
