Serums & Ampoules | My Faves | Active Ingredients To Look For







I am always trying out new serums but seem to keep coming back to these ones!

I know that some of you are trying out dupes to the Ferulic and Phloretin serums from other brands that are less expensive. Please let me know what your experiences are as I would be curious to try and compare. In the meantime:

You can find SkinCeuticals at this link – Dermstore periodically and quite often run a 20% discount on this brand so look out for it!

Although it’s never too early for prevention and to start good skincare habits, you really don’t need serums this powerful in your early 20s if you don’t have problematic skin.

  1. I bought the Skinceuticals vitamin C serum, and I feel like the one I was given has been sitting on the counter for so long, today opened and it is darker than the one you show on the apple video πŸ™ how could we know??? How can I make sure I get a new one next time?

  2. Can you please do an updated video on this topic please ? I feel like there’s a lot of new stuff in the market and was wondering if you still feel the same abt these products 😊

  3. Oh my God… Your hair colour… Your lips colour and your pretty face… 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍…. Love you….

  4. Your skin is amazing. I enjoy watching your videos. I am very picky about what I use in my face due to my sensitive/oily/acne prone skin. You have been very helpful.

  5. Hi Renee! Would LOVE to see an,updated version of this subject! I am loving a lot of my K-Beauty products- but have no idea what's good or bad! Especially would love to hear more about essences, ampoules, serums that actually work for m elasma (mine,is under control but always on the search to brighten/lighten that last 20% left! Basically, things for more,mature skin. A lot of your product recs seem,to just basic hydration…

  6. My question with the ce phloertin is the vitamin C, I had always though that vitamin C is destroyed by UV rays, I’ve always thought vitamin C was supposed to be used at night

  7. HIII, SO I'M WONDERING IF "Elujai Propolis Myrrh Ample Light" IS A FAMOUS MEDICINAL SERUM IN KOREA?? CAUSE IT'S SO FAMOUS IN PHILIPPINES. AND IT HAS SAMSUNG LOGO AT THE TOP OF THE PRODUCT. SO PLEASE IF SOMEONE FEELS FAMILIAR ABOUT THIS PRODUCT YOUR ANSWER WILL BE A BIG HELP T^T

  8. Hi! This review is amazing, so informative!! I love Retexturing Activiator a lot but i was told to use it before my regular serum as a prep, and that it works well before CF Ferulic but from ur review i understand it’s not exactly how it should be used. Is RA is supposed to be the only product i can put on my face or i can combine it with others, like cream or oil on top? Thank u

  9. Finished my first Missha ampoule. It works. The texture is light but super rich, very rare combination. My dehydrated skin adores it. At the beginning it dried out on my face in seconds, then it took more and more time to dry. That is how I understood that my skin is becoming more hydrated and plump.
    I will buy the ampoule again.
