Product Name: Skinfood Black Pomegranate Voluming Serum
Origin: S. Korea
Price: Around USD19

This is a very unique serum because it has a separate powder pack which you need to mix into the serum before start using. I believe Skinfood pack the powder ingredients separately to ensure the best and fresh quality delivered to the user. I think this is very thoughtful of Skinfood.

How to use?
Skinfood recommended to use the serum right after toner.
The consistency of this serum is lightweight and lotion like. Absorb easily on skin; not greasy or tacky. Very comfortable on skin and fast absorb, no waiting time needed which is good. Skin feels soft, hydrated and supple after used. This serum is lightly scented, fruity scent and not too overwhelming. After using this products for about 4 months, (yeah this serum last me about 4 months) I found this serum did hydrate my skin, as for the illuminate, plump up and anti-wrinkle effect claim; I don’t find this serum illuminate my skin or helps erasing fine lines or blur out wrinkle. However it does hydrate skin and skin appear supple right after used but the hydrating effect doesn’t last long. As whether this serum will prevent wrinkle from forming will depend on long term usage I guess. If you looking for lightweight serum that hydrate your skin with hope to prevent wrinkle, this could be a good option. If you expect more than that maybe you can look for other better product that produce visible result.
