If you’re into K-Beauty, you must have heard about the brand Mamonde which under the same parent company as famous brands such as Laneige, Etude House, and Innisfree. This brand is inspired by flowers where their R&D have been studying flowers for 28 years.
Flowers are the source of plant vitality.
Plants endure and survive the rough natural
environment and draw all the energy they have
accumulated for a long time,
exploding the most powerful energy of their
life cycle the moment they come into full bloom.
Mamonde studies this explosive vital energy
for a long time and faithfully conveys it to
deliver it to the customers.
This serum is one of their star products that I have been using for seven months now and I would love to share with you all about it!
I think the ingredients deserve to be highlighted here because according to Mamonde, they discovered this Blossoming Energy™ (yes it’s trademarked) after 28 years 😮 It’s a component that allows flowers to bloom and last longer than usual. It is free-from: animal ingredients, mineral oil, polyacrylamide, imidazolidinyl urea, triethanolamine, synthetic colorant, PEG surfactant and paraben. This friendly formulation makes it suitable to use on all skin types including sensitive skin.
Other notable ingredients are niacinamide and tranexamic acid for brightening, adenosine, vitamin E, and citric acid for anti aging, and sodium hyaluronate for ultimate hydration.
Not gonna lie here the red concept really entices me. This sturdy glass bottle sits pretty on my vanity, really.
Aesthetics aside, the practicality of the packaging is also truly amazing as the pump is easy to use and distributes the perfect amount of product that is not too much nor too little.
The whole thing is hassle-free and hygienic. Travelling wise, it prevents leaking but the bottle is quite heavy.
SMELL & TEXTURE
It smells so pleasantly floral and it’s not overpowering. It is just nice, enough to make you feel like you’re in a garden of flowers. The texture here deserves an award because it is 𝗹𝗶𝗴𝗵𝘁𝘄𝗲𝗶𝗴𝗵𝘁, 𝗻𝗼𝘁 𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗰𝗸𝘆, 𝗮𝗯𝘀𝗼𝗿𝗯𝘀 𝗾𝘂𝗶𝗰𝗸𝗹𝘆, 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗵𝗮𝘀 𝗴𝗿𝗲𝗮𝘁 𝘀𝗽𝗿𝗲𝗮𝗱𝗮𝗯𝗶𝗹𝗶𝘁𝘆!
I genuinely love love love the texture! It makes my routine enjoyable and it layers well with other products. All my other skincare items love her – she’s so popular. I use it AM and PM.
It claims to work in 3 ways:
- D𝘦𝘦𝘱 𝘮𝘰𝘪𝘴𝘵𝘶𝘳𝘪𝘴𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘩𝘺𝘥𝘳𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘩𝘦𝘢𝘭𝘵𝘩𝘺, 𝘥𝘦𝘸𝘺 𝘭𝘰𝘰𝘬 – noticed upon first application. My skin feels so moisturised and supple.
- 𝘚𝘵𝘳𝘦𝘯𝘨𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘯 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘴𝘬𝘪𝘯’𝘴 𝘮𝘰𝘪𝘴𝘵𝘶𝘳𝘦 𝘣𝘢𝘳𝘳𝘪𝘦𝘳 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘴𝘦𝘭𝘧-𝘥𝘦𝘧𝘦𝘯𝘤𝘦 𝘴𝘺𝘴𝘵𝘦𝘮 – I noticed after 7+ days my skin feels moist longer esp after AM routines, dewy and comfortable. The moisture barrier effect is easily noticeable as this is my go to whenever I got a tight feeling after I tried a scrub. In the third month of using my skin had some flaky area around the nose it really helped repair the area alongside other hyaluronic acid serums that I layered with. This is also my go to layering serum whenever I have any dry patches.
- 𝘉𝘰𝘰𝘴𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘴𝘬𝘪𝘯’𝘴 𝘦𝘯𝘦𝘳𝘨𝘺 𝘱𝘳𝘰𝘥𝘶𝘤𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘪𝘮𝘱𝘳𝘰𝘷𝘦 𝘴𝘬𝘪𝘯’𝘴 𝘵𝘦𝘹𝘵𝘶𝘳𝘦 – On the 16th or 17th day of using my skin definitely feels softer and smoother. Foundation looks better and not flaky at all.
There are so many good things about this serum that I can’t really find any weakness no matter how hard I tried. I was about to comment on the price but for its performance and the luxurious packaging, I think it is well justified. This is a product that is made after thorough research and a lot of love and thought were put in the process.
I am going to repurchase this as I think it really revitalises my skin and the plumpness is real.
My Rate: 5/5
