My review

The first thing that comes into my mind when I use the products, be it either the essence,milk or the serum  is the lovely lavender smell. Quite different from some others’ lavender smell which is too strong for my nose. Instantly, I feel more relaxed after a few sniff on the products. I do think that these series of products is suitable for use before bedtime because it relaxes your mind and encourage better quality sleep.


 I simply love the texture of the essence because it is easily absorbed into my skin. Instantly, my skin feels soft and subtle just after a simple wipe. I am amazed that I can achieve the result of a more radiant complexion just by using the Essence.

Milk:  This milk is definitely suitable for a blemish prone complexion like me because the texture of this milk is quite mild in nature. I have used other brands’ milk before and most of the time, they are simply too oily for my skin, which will cause breakouts. 

I am expecting a more watery texture though. Surprisingly, the texture is just nice and soothing without any suggestion of oiliness. Now, I have a more smooth and translucent skin after using the serum.

Overall Experience:

I will definitely continue to use Apple Seed & Tranexamic Acid series because I really see an instant improvement of the complexion of my skin---It is much softer, whiter and radiant. Most important of all, I do not feel any oiliness or stickiness’ on my skin after using these Products. Do try out these Products and you will be as pleased as me with the satisfying results.
