Today I'm reviewing the Cy'Lab Crithmum Maritum Callus Culture Filtrate Repairing Essence (talk about a mouthful!). This product was sent to me for reviewing purposes by @amabiebeauty@makeupinasia . Here is my honest opinion!
🌱Packaging: a sturdy green glass stopper bottle, which contains 30ml of product. The stopper is a bit fickle. It's hard to get the product out. The trick is to press the stopper for several seconds to get it to fill up, although that doesn't always work. It could definitely do with an update!
🌱Ingredients: I found out that Crithmum Maritum is a sea fennel, rich in vitamin C. The sea fennel culture used in this essence is good for skin brightening and has anti - ageing properties. Coenzyme A is beneficial in treating acne. Lecithin is an emulsifier and helps to hydrate and repair the skin. There's also collagen, another anti-ager and Sodium Hyaluronate for brightening.So a nice set of ingredients!
🌱Thoughts: First impressions were good. The essence feels very much like a serum. A small amount is enough to cover your face. It immediately feels very pleasant on, it's so hydrating and soothing. There us no discernible smell. I've been using it for a few weeks now, and my skin feels soft and well hydrated. As for anti ageing, I can't say much, I only have a few minor thin lines, and they won't go away that easily and quickly. That being said, this is a very nice product, it's no miracle worker, my break-outs aren't improved but my skin enjoys having it as part of my routine. The dose of moisture it gives is such a lovely feeling. Cy'Lab has caught my attention for sure, I only wish it was easier to find the products!
