Perfect for Combination/Acne Prone Skin

I never thought I'd find a product that would rival my love of the DoYou Azulene Gel Cream, but this has definitely done it. As someone with combination skin that can break out if you even look at it wrong, this has done an amazing job of keeping it clear. It absorbs relatively quickly, maintains hydration throughout the day, and works very well under makeup (without slip.) I wouldn't say it's hydrating enough for super dry skin, but slightly dehydrated to oily skin would do well with it. It doesn't make my skin greasy throughout the day (which unfortunately the J.One Jelly Pack does) and doesn't have any tackiness.The creamy gel texture is cool to the touch as long as you don't rub it between your hands too much before applying it. It does feel very light and non-smothering once on the skin. I prefer to dab it on the skin while it's still cool, lightly spread it and then use the heat from my palms/hands to increase absorption. It only takes a couple of minutes to absorb before it's ready to have makeup or sunscreen over it.The smell is a slightly astringent herbal smell which is pleasant (not quite as herbal as Sulwhasoo products) and has an underlying sweet note to it. The scent fades very quickly and doesn't linger at all.Overall, the product is wonderful and does well on its own, over other serums/ampoules, under sunscreen and makeup, and stays relatively matte throughout the day. I haven't had a single breakout with it, and it in fact has actually healed them. I very highly recommend this product and can absolutely see why it has achieved gamechanger status here. « less

Wow! A new favorite

First impressions, as I’ve only used this product twice, but this pressed serum is amazing! The texture is just what my oily skin loves, lightweight gel, yet very hydrating. At night it left my skin hydrated enough to skip any cream, which would usually leave my face feeling tight and dry despite my skin type. I’m dealing with the tail end of a breakout currently, and I put it on last night, and I looked in the mirror after about 15 minutes my skin looked great! Breakouts much less red and more calmed. During the day it gave me a glow and my imperfections were diminished, almost blurred somehow. Saw my mom for lunch today and she told me my skin looked amazing! I’ve seen more results with hardly any uses compared to other products. Plus I get more product for less money than my old favorite face cream, which is what I will use this in place of. « less

What happened?!!

This worked for my skin relatively well for a few months, and then randomly every time I would put this on my face would turn bright red, and get really hot and burny feeling. It also made me break out really badly. (I tested it by itself for a week to make sure it was the cause) so I’m guessing my skin became very sensitive to whatever is in this.

Hands down the best

Amazing product, I’ve had the hardest time finding a moisturizer that doesn’t irritate my oily sensitive acne prone skin and provides moisture simultaneously. This pressed serum makes my skin look plump and youthful without breaking me out or giving me blackheads. In fact when I start to get a pimple popping up this seems to sooth it and by the end of the day the pimple is smaller and not as painful as when it first popped up. It sits beautifully under makeup and makes my skin feel super healthy. This is my daytime moisturizer and although it doesn’t give you a matte look to the face it doesn’t make me look overly oily like every other product I’ve tried under makeup. Like I said this stuff is hands down the best daytime moisturizer around, I’m honestly surprised its not talked about more often. Totally worth it in my opinion. « less

Another amazing product from Blithe.

I am an Asian beauty fanatic and an avid researcher when it comes to anything that goes on or in my body. I am very picky about ingredients. When time came for me to replace a serum, this was my first choice. The ingredients are AMAZING. If you have acne/irritation concerns, the only thing in here that registers on CosDNA is Olea/Olive extract. The first time I used it, it was over my tretinoin treated dry/flaky skin and it immediately felt plumped and hydrated. My skin felt so soft and smooth that, if I didn't know better, I'd swear I was wearing a thick cream. Not only it is incredibly hydrating, but it dries down quick without the stickiness or pilling that you often experience with a serum. If you're on the fence, just give it a try! In terms of hydration and overall feeling, it's as good as (and in some cases better than) any big name luxury brand that I've tried and that's saying a lot. If you are wanting to try K-beauty, Blithe is an excellent place to start. « less
