Serlando Bee Perfect Serum and Cream

Nov 28, 2017 // No comments
I got a sample of these from the event of Philbeauty 2017. There's a lot of brands during the event and I had a chance to visit all of them. Brands showcasing their products, I bought some items as well because some products are not yet available on Philippines Market and some products are priced lower than mall price - distributor price.

Serlando is a professional skin brand from US that started in 1997. In 2015, in cooperation with Germany, Taiwan and South Korea, the brand launched a series of function skin care products.

I bought Serlando Rosy Pink Moisture Dew and I got a sample of Serlando Bee Perfect Serum and Cream. Propolis is a new word for me, and it's just today I decided to try them - a bit scared as well.

It's my first time to try this sample, I'm currently in the mood to empty my sample stash before they expire - even tho these Serlando Samples will expire around by the year 2021.
Propolis is a mixture produced by Honey Bees. Propolis is used as a sealant in their hives to protect from outer intruders such as virus and diseases. Propolis enabled to make the hive the cleanest place in nature by inhibiting fungal and bacterial growth.

Product Claims:
  • The product is perfect for Acne Prone Skin
  • Penetrates deep beneath the skin for a healthy looking and blemish free complexion
  • Infused with propoliscera and salicylic acid to unclog pores, whilst dissolving beads restore smoothness and leave skin feeling silky soft
Serum Contains:
  • Propolis Extract - contains much variety of flavonoids, improve skin texture, repair, luster, elasticity
  • Salicylic Acid - macromolecular salicylic acid can exfoliate, clear the pores, helo skin metabolism
  • Mint - cooling feeling and helps to shrink pores, better to sooth acne skin
Cream Contains:
  • Propolis Extract
  • Titanium Dioxide - Pure mineral titanium dioxide powder that acts as concealer and for sun protection
  • Allantion - moisturizing effects that help create a smooth and healthy skin.
  • Serlando Bee Perfect Propolis Serum should be used after your toner AM and/or PM
  • Serlando Bee Perfect Propolis Cream should be used after the Serum AM only
I find the sample good for 1-2x use, my first impression for the serum when I first applied it, it does sting for like 15 secs - applied on one side of the cheek. Then completely feels nothing after a minute. My skin absorbs it completely, and no immediate changes in appearance at all. For the Cream, it looks like a concealer cream when applied on my pimples. No changes yet after 1st application, but itchy feel on some pimples did subside. Honestly, I can't provide full feedback right now, these are my first impressions on the samples which are used once only.

Tony Moly 7 Days Tatoo Eyebrow

1 comment
Thin/short eyebrow problems? Looking for eyebrow product that would make the eyebrow looking natural and not overdone and will last for 6-9hours? (I have combination skin type btw)
Under Php 300 budget? I end up loving this Tony Moly 7 Days Tatoo Eyebrow.

I bought it from @altheakorea for P264 and shade in Dark Brown.

'7 days' is just the name of course and doesn't perform that long BUT I swear and my shorty eyebrows about this eyebrow. It worked for me and last the whole working day. It leaves a stain even after a mild face wash

It looks normal eyebrow shade when applied and similar with K-Palette but a bit darker in my opinion and cheaper as well! I actually stock up 3pcs of this. 

Repurchase: Yes!
