White Seed Brightening Serum Review & Swatches

What Serum does to you face, have this question ever bothered you?

Hey birdies we often see Serum in a skincare shop and I always opted for lotion rather than going for serum. But I wondered if the product range is having lotion/moisturiser than why they have introduced serum. So, I did my homework and searched about serum. Did you knew that serums absorb deep into your skin, rather than sitting on the surface like moisturizers and it work great on acne, dry skin, brightness, and wrinkles. So today I will be reviewing White Seed brightening serum from my “white seed range” products.

My Experience with White Seed Brightening Serum Review-The product comes in a white color sturdy cylindrical bottle with a pump dispenser attached on top. I really like the packaging of the bottle as the silver color touch really made it look elegant. The entire details are mentioned on the box in which product comes in and I really liked the quality of cardboard box. The bottle is not so travel friendly as the cap provided for pump dispenser can get lost as its not fit enough hence be careful while carrying the bottle with you while travelling. The only thing bothered me was I cannot the check the left out quantity as the bottle is opaque.

For the first timer you have to pump the product 4-5 times to come out. The product smells very mild which I liked it. The texture of the product is very thin and milky and the consistency is good as it does not run. Just 2 drops of serum is sufficient for entire face followed with the lotion. I used to apply product after face wash after cleaning it with toner. The bottle survived me for 3 months as I used to apply twice in a day.

Within a week time it started showing difference on my face as it has improved texture and elasticity of my face making it appear more firm and supple. The continuous use of product has brightened my skin making it look fresh and glowy. If you use the entire range of product all together you will experience the development taking place in the skin color and texture which I really enjoyed it. Though it has reduced my wrinkles and fine lines but did not make major difference on dark spots and pigmentation. I haven’t noticed any breakout, irritation or burning sensation on my face after post usage.

I tried to do a loyalty check on the product for not using 5-7 days on my face and I was highly disappointed to see after results as my skin was loosing it charm and elasticity which simply means that the effect is just for short term till the time you use and not long term. I even tried using this serum with different good brand of product and it was not that effective on my skin when used with its same range of product. The product has made my face sticky and oily when used in hot and humid climate. Considering the price I paid for the product I do expect a long term effect on my face but that’s not the case here.

Overall, I did liked the product but then it really gives a short term effects on skin. When you continously use the product you can see the improvement in the skin texture and elasticity but as you stopped using the serum within a week time you skin start loosing it effect. Considering the fact, the price I paid for this product all went in vain. Not so recommended.
