I was invited to be a part of #AmabieAlist this month and I received this product from @amabiebeauty in exchange for my honest review.
They came prettily wrapped like a Christmas gift for me. So, the little girl inside me was eager to open them.
The first one I had was this Fly up High Definition Skin Activating Treatment Essence.
The bottle is so pretty. Round glass bottle like SK2. The cap is a bit lighter. I am guessing that it is made of plastic. Judging from the packaging alone, it is a good choice as a gift. If you will be gifting some skincare junkies or anyone with the same interest.
Several days after, I had my first patch test. I pour a little amount on a cotton pad and applied it on a my skin. It was watery and cold on the skin. Although it is watery, the product leaves a little amount of moisture unlike. Missha and SK2. Those products feels like water running on your face. But the amount of moist is not good enough if you will compare it with Secret Key's Premium 24K Gold First Essence. Small red spots are seen on that particular area but they are gone after a while. I shared that experience on my #igstory.
When I tried the product on my face, I noticed that I'm starting to have some whiteheads again on my jaw area. Same thing happened when I used Missha FTE. I immediately stopped using the product after that.
Missha First Treatment Essence and Fly up High Definition Skin Activating Treatment Essence both have Sodium Hyaluronate. This is a well known moisturizing ingredient that is very small it can penetrate deeply on your skin. It holds water and helps your skin to be more hydrated. I am thinking that the amount of that ingredient put in the product is not good for my skin.
Each of us has different skin types and facing some personal skin issues. This is just my personal experience about the products mentioned.
