Naruko Apple Seed Series Review

Sponsored Post

Anyeong~

I have been using Naruko Apple Seed Series (specially to target dark spots) for 5 months, I am using the complete range except for the facial cleanser. If you read my post on Naruko before, this product is parabean free, natural ingredients based and affordable. Beware that all Naruko products have authentic sticker that you can scratch and it will reveal a code that you can match from their website. I have been sponsored 5 products and had posted the review for all three products. You can read those reviews by browsing under label Naruko. 

Above 5 products I been using for 5 months

Naruko Apple series from left:

  1. Sheet Mask 
  2. Lotion
  3. Serum
  4. Moisturizer
  5. Night Gelly

I also will write review on the Naruko apple seed eye serum and BB cream soon, which I use along with above products. Overall I am satisfied with the performance of the apple series range, this series brightened my skin tone and improve the appearance of dark spots became lightened. However did the dark spots did not diminish. As you know dark spots only can lighten not diminish completely, unless you go for laser. So this product quite effective. The only thing down side of this product I found is that it is not moisturizing enough if you have dry skin. So you need to use better moisturizer to compliment with this product. 

I will buy this product again especially the Serum and Night Gelly. Have you tried Naruko products?
