Beauty essences that are made through natural fermentation process doesn’t sound new to us. Broadly, fermentation process increases the level of antioxidants which in turn slows down the ageing process of our skin. This process is said to be one of the popular Korean skincare trends, so I can’t think of any better ways to test out this trend other than trying out a Korean product itself. For the past two weeks, I’ve tried out su:m37° Secret Essence and here’s my thoughts about it…
My thoughts about the su:m37° Secret Essence
The frosted bottle gives a very exquisite feel to the entire packaging. That aside, su:m37° Secret Essence is actually transparent, so it feels and looks like water. However, it has a very pleasant and mild sweet scent, which I guess it’s coming from the fruit ingredient. After little effort to spread the already lightweight essence, the essence gets absorbed almost instantly, leaving no residue behind. The skin doesn’t feel tacky or heavy at all. But because it’s a lightweight essence, the skin is mildly moisturised and I do recommend using a proper moisturizer after this step to complete your beauty regime. All in all, I use this as the very first step of my beauty regime to prep my skin for any other skincare products following next.
