Functions: To firms the skin and restores its capacity to maintain suppleness and moisture by fighting multiple signs of aging which includes

Lack-lustre skin
Broken capillaries
and Age related collagen loss

Argan Oil-helps shields the liquid barrier while inhibiting the production of enzymes which break down collagen and the underlying structure of skin tissue

How it works:

This fusion formulation allows the active peptide, Palmitoyal Tripeptide-38, to accelerate production of collagen and Hyaluronic Acid without irritating the skin. The strategic chemical partnering allows the powerful peptide to produce results more quickly and effectively, while essential oils and restorative agents help restore skin integrity and protection.

The first thing that I have noticed is its overwhelming fragrance incorporating the aroma of Jasmine, Rose, Ylang Ylang, Geranium, Rosemary, Cinnamon and Neroli This aroma is almost similar to those essential oil that is often used in Spa. Unlike other products that I have used before, the fragrance of this product still lingers on my face for around a few minute after it has been absorbed. Highly recommended for people who love essential oil.

The next thing that I like about this product is its bottle design. It actually has a stopper type of design which makes it easier to pour out the product in droplet form.

I am guessing that the reason why the bottle is designed in this way because one will only need 4-6 drops of this serum per night application.

When I first poured out this serum, I do find that the texture feels like essential oil. 

I am quite skeptical about its oily texture at first as oily products are not easily absorbed into the skin. But, I am wrong as this serum is easily absorbed into the skin. Immediately, you can feel that your skin feel smoother as though there is a natural transparent protective layer on my skin. 

Although I have not seen the lines disappearing  from my face, I am really glad that they are not as deep as before. 

I will strongly recommend you to try out the massaging techniques with the serum as above. The massaging techniques are essential to relax my skin and help me to improve the quality of my sleep. 

Do try out this product if you are currently looking for a sleeping serum with essential oil frgrance that has anti-aging properties.
