September 18, 2016

Koreans are known for their glowing skin, which is all women's dream and deep desire. In Korea, everyone is obsessed with hydration, that is the secret key to youthful, glowing skin. Honestly, i am jealous and also get inspired when watching Korean actress's beautiful and zero-pores skin in K-drama. I don't mind if my beauty regimen involved 10 steps or more, what i want is achieving healthy radiance from within, i want dewy dewy skin!!! ^^
I am a lucky girl because i just found a new skin care product to help me achieve glowing skin within few steps. That is THE FACE SHOP The Therapy First Serum!
If you are my Instagram follower, probably you knew that i went to beach vacation twice in August and just back from Singapore on early of September. Literally, moisture was evaporating off my skin, it lacks a sheen and plumpness, sometimes it is difficult to rub moisture products into the skin. "aww~~ big problem huh..."

Existing customer who using The Therapy Products
After cleansing, pump 1-2 times and apply following the skin texture outward.
Let's see how elegant of their packaging when delivery to me! WAO! It is like a book. =)
The Therapy First Serum comes in a classy frosted glass bottle with pump dispenser and cap. 
There's a measurement label attached on the side of bottle, helps to know that how much left in that bottle. So sweet!
I’m using 2 pumps for my face. The Therapy First Serum is a fairly lightweight serum consistency as clear as water and a mild flora scent.
For best result, i do not recommend to use cotton pad for application. All the time, i am pumping those skin care products on my palm before apply. Same to this, i apply The Therapy First Serum without cotton pad to ensure full absorption.
Once again, apply The Therapy First Serum after cleansing, before toning! But if you miss out this step and already apply toner, you can still alright to apply The Therapy First Serum after toner, once in a blue moon.
It easily spreads out smoothly even and dries down remarkably quickly, thanks to the Water Blending Crystal (Micro Crystal Particle) of the product. It instantly absorbed into the skin and the essential oil ingredients quickly penetrated into the skin to forms a crystal coating to prevent moisture evaporation.   
Firstly, it is so adorable as it can blends into my beauty regime without any changes. I don't need to stop either one product because of this bottle. It doesn’t feel oily or sticky. Of course it isn’t an all-around miracle worker act like a wrinkles eraser, but absorbed into my skin very fast and i can feel my skin like infused by lots of water. 
As cliched as it sounds, youthful radiance really is a thing, my skin now become more radiance because it easily absorb all the skin care products i used after The Therapy First Serum. It is really help a lot! My skin looks much better and naturally glowing. 
Tips : 
Cooling purpose : Dampen a piece of gauze with The Therapy First Serum and freeze in the fridge. Put it on face for 10 minutes.
Relaxing purpose : Pour The Therapy First Serum into warm palm and gently press on the face points. Inhale deeply. 
Exfoliation purpose : Use The Therapy First Serum with The Therapy Green tea cotton pad. 
Price : RM185.48 (50ml)
To achieve the best result on my dewy skin, I also using The Therapy Moisture Blending Cream which is same range with The Therapy First Serum. The Therapy Moisture Blending Cream is a water blending cream, created with European beauty therapists essential oil recipe and essential water of Thalassotherapy. Same ingredients with The Therapy First Serum but different formula, create a luxurious cream that gently melts into skin for anti-aging, hydration and rich moisture. 
Huh?? What is water blending cream??? 
It is lighter texture than  "oil blending cream" but richer than regular moisture cream. 
Look at the picture, you will notice that there are 2 layers in The Therapy Moisture Blending Cream. Upper layer is moisture oil gel cream which is composed to Thalassotherapy water + 3 essential oils (Sandalwood, avocado, palmrosa). Bottom layer is the anti-aging rich moisture cream. 
Since it is a cream with separated layers, so you need to mix manually for 10 seconds. 
It can smoothly blend together easily. When apply on my face, it has an immediate cooling and soothing effect on the skin, i love this so much! Well, it isn't same with oil blending cream that so heavy, non-sticky also. I can felt my skin softer and moisture now, too bad i haven't buy the moisture tester pen, i cannot prove it with digit but you can check my pictures LOL! 

Tips : 
I also using The Therapy Moisture Blending Cream as sleeping mask, apply thicker layer on your face and giving you an illuminated appearance on the next day. 
This is my secret to getting illuminated dewy skin like Korean. =)
The Therapy First Serum and The Therapy Moisture Blending Cream are available at all THE FACE SHOP stores.
