My thoughts

Firstly, I wanted to comment that I really respect this brand and for what they stand for because there aren’t really that many brands that are specifically available to the public where they cater their products to medically treated patients. Most products for medically treated patients are mainly prescription based so it’s really refreshing to a brand so passionate on not only helping patients recover and heal but also offer them a better quality life. When we are comfortable in our own skin, we start to feel a lot happier. Specific ingredients were picked to formulate these products to ensure that they are effective and mild enough where it doesn’t irritate the skin.

My initial reaction to this packaging was how awesome it looked! It had nice frosted packaging and the choice of font, design of the bottle looked really cool. I also liked how it had a pump to it and how easy it was to control the amount of product you want to be dispensed. I found the serum VERY cooling and hydrating! It has such a lovely gel consistency to it applies beautifully into the skin. Although there is no visible residue to this product, I found it leaving a slight tack consistency to it, nothing unbearable but I thought I might want to point that out.

TIP: If you ever stumble across any tacky products, simply apply moisturizer on top of it and the tack/stickiness should go away.


  • Texture: 5/5 – This has a lovely gel texture to it and spreads so beautifully into the skin. It leaves the skin cool, soothes and refreshed. It dries to a matte finish on the skin and appears to look like skin.
  • Scent: 5/5 – There is no detectable scent to this and I found it very comfortable to wear. I personally prefer products without fragrance because they are potential irritants, most scents do bother me and it’s an unnecessary addition to the product.
  • Price: 4/5 – For a serum, I think the price is quite fair for what you’re getting. I think a lot of the reason why it is priced the way how it is because the technology, science, development involved in this to create this product and the fact that it is created for specifically medical treated patients.
    Performance: 5/5 – I find it effective and does exactly what it claims.
  • Packaging: 5/5 – I have no complaints with this packaging. Everything about it is great and even though the packaging
  • Overall: 4/5 – It’s a nice product, I had no issues using this product and am happy with it! This is something that would be PERFECT for summer simply because of the lightweight gel consistency to it and how cooling and hydrating it is. I believe those who have oily skin, would really appreciate a product like this.
