Have you ever experienced a dry, flaky, itchy, irritated, or sensitive skin? These are the common signs of a damaged or weakened skin protection barrier. Basically, the skin protection barrier is important to protect from the external environment as well as to prevent the loss of moisture that keep the skin hydrated. When the skin condition is compromised, the ability as effective barrier is impaired and loss of moisture occurred which contribute to rough, dry, irritated, breakouts, and sensitive skin. Thus, the barrier function of the skin is extremely important concept in skincare.
The skin looks like bricks-and-mortar structure where it composes of bricks (corneocytes), and mortars (lipids). The corneocytes are non-living cells which are ready to shed out while the lipids that surround the corneocytes are responsible for maintaining skin hydration, firmness, and softness by preventing water loss. In short, hen we get older, the lipids decrease and that’s why our skin becomes dry and wrinkles appeared more visible. When the lipids are damaged, the skin’s ability to work as an effective barrier is impaired and this leads to inflammation.
So, today’s post is about a skincare product which help to repair the skin protection barrier. I actually received it a few months ago but I just got time to write a review about my personal experience after using this product for a few months.

What I Say
The product comes in a bottle with a pump dispenser. I find it is more hygienic, convenient, and travel-friendly. The packaging label has the important information that a consumer needs. The product looks more cosmeceutical with its simple and straight-forward packaging.
The product has a nice lightweight texture which does not make the skin feels greasy after every application. I usually apply this onto my skin after cleansing and toning. It functions as serum that soothes my skin from redness. I also noticed that this product can help to reduce the redness due to breakouts. Besides, it helps to ensure that my skin is moisturized.
This product is said to be paraben-free, and fragrance-free. In other words, it does not contain alcohol which encourage the redness. Only a small amount is needed especially when the skin is oily because I noticed that my skin was quite oily after a few hours. This product is recommended for those who are suffering from dry, and sensitive skin.
This is a nice product which only uses natural ingredients. It’s also paraben-free and fragrance-free. Since it does not promote breakouts or any ‘additional’ problems other than being ‘more’ oily when applied on oily skin, this is recommended product for those who are having sensitive or dry skin. This is not suitable for those who have oily skin.
