Neogen White Truffle Serum In Oil Drop
I have loved all the Neogen products I’ve used in the past, so I was really excited to try this one out! The white truffle line came out only a month ago and seems to be a hit here in Korea. They also have two other white truffle products that I might review later on.
The serum comes in a colorful yellow and blue box that really pops out at you when you’re looking around at the store. The serum is in a glass bottle with a pump and cap. You can see the oil drops in the bottle which is so cool to look at! Each bottle holds 50ml and I use two pumps per application. I think you can get away with even one pump.
This serum claims to strengthen damaged skin, nourish, create a moist barrier, and brighten the skin. The little drops that you see in the bottle is created by micro fluidic dispersion technology. This new technology balances the oil and serum so that you get a fresh finish and not a sticky or oily feeling on the skin. The white truffle extract is mixed in with a skin barrier component that is similar to our own skin which helps restore damaged skin. This skin barrier is made up of fatty acids, ceramide, and cholesterol that mimics your own skin.
The white truffle extract is the nourishing ingredient. Nicknamed the ‘black diamonds’ in the culinary world, it’s amazing to see this as an ingredient in a skincare product. I thought black truffles were better for some reason but it turns out that white truffles have more vitamins, amino acid, and minerals. The serum also has other oils that helps with moisturizing the skin like macadamia seed oil, avocado oil, and baobab tree seed oil. The added hyaluronic acid keeps your skin hydrated for longer. The serum also as niacinamide to brighten and improve skin texture.
What I love about this serum is the texture and feel of it during and after. At first it feels like a water essence and soon after you get the oil texture and when you’re done massaging it in to the skin you’re left with soft glowing skin. To test it, I only applied toner and this before I went to bed and the next day my skin didn’t feel dried out, but felt soft and still had a hint glow. I’ve been using it night and day for several days now and the dry spot on my forehead is so much softer and 90% less flaky. I’ll have to try it more to see any brightening effects though.
