Review: StemCello Revitalizing EGF Vitamin C Serum

Hello dollies~ I'm back with another skincare review. If you've been following me for some time you might already know that I'm a sucker for Vit C Ampoule type serum. I personally think that the attached pipette is somewhat cute! Haha... Okay, this time, it's a serum from SkinCure, Inc., StemCello EGF Vitamin C Serum. I've been using this serum for almost a month now~

if you want to know more about the company, SkinCure, Inc., click HERE. I received a lot of other samplers and one booklet, here's how they look:

I spent some time to read the booklet and found a fascinating fact about EGF, or Epidermal Growth Factor. Basically, this EGF is a growth factor that stimulates cell growth, and this EGF also stimulating our Stem Cell to grow even more and replace others broken cell or tissue on our skins. I've found several Korean skincare products with EGF in it, one of them is the ReCell serum that I reviewed earlier.

 No additional coloring agents! Good :)

Active ingredients of EGF Vitamin C Serum, it contains so many beneficial herbs and plant extracts, as well as the Emortal that originated from a pea. ^-^
And this is the appearance of the 30ml glass bottle, quite handy to be taken out for travel because the outer cardboard packaging is sturdy enough to hold it well. The glass itself is dark brown in color to prevent direct hit from sunlight. As you may know as well, sunlight can damage most of skincare product, especially one with Vitamin C in it, since Vit C is very prone to oxidation.

Two layers of cardboard. The inner cardboard is thick and strong enough to hold the bottle.

I'm liking this attached ampoule pipette so much!!! It's very easy to use and very hygienic. The texture itself is very watery, hence the absorption process is super fast. I usually apply 3 or 4 drops to my face and I need to spread the liquid very quickly nor it won't be spreading evenly to my face. It also smells good! Very subtle, mild, and gentle, with a soft aroma of liquidy medicine. I use it twice daily, after toner, but didn't proceed to emulsion/cream. >.< My skin has become more oilier these days, so this serum alone will do. As for the long term results (been using this for a month), I notice that my pigmented acne scars started to fade, from dark brown to light brown. This is good ^-^~ But I didn't notice a significant improvement of the fine lines. I have rather deep 'fine' lines on my undereye area. TT^TT

To be frank, the downside is: this serum might be not moisturizing enough for people with normal skins. (But it fits me very well though, my skintype is oily). But me and my oily skins love this serum a lot, because of the wateryness, and it didn't make my skin anymore oily than it naturally was. I'll honestly rank this serum as a Holy Grail now, replacing the BRTC vitalizer C-10 ampoule that I used to love a lot!

I definitely recommend this for those with dull complexion and oily skin type, because the 'glowy' effect it gives is real, thanks to Vit C! It brighten up my skin just right, not too pale, and gives you a healthy complexion.
And this is me, after using the serum for almost a month! Hehehe.... with a little amount of BB cream on ^-^ Pardon my goofy face, lolz.
