My Review:

I am so excited to try this serum. I love propolis extract and niacinamide in the skincare ingredient list. When it first launches, my attention goes straight to the glow serum out of the three-serum variant Beauty Of Joseon offers.  The price is very affordable too. So I purchase the Beauty Of Joseon glow serum and calming serum (that contains green tea and panthenol).

I like the packaging is a cute pipette bottle, pretty traveling friendly since the bottle is made from plastic. The texture is a watery gel, slightly stick. I only need like 2-3 drops for the entire face and neck. The color is light brown just like honey.

I use it after toner, so it spread easier. I try to use it in the morning at first. It absorbs well to the skin and does not feel tacky at all. I can see my skin show a noticeable glow throughout the day. I also try it at night time. But I realize that the next day my skin is a bit red and tiny bumps appear on my cheeks. I stop using it for three days and try it on again, however, the same thing happens again. I was wondering why it happens, then I read again the ingredient list and it turns out the serum contains tamanu oil. In the ingredient list, the tamanu oil scientific name is Calophyllum Inophyllum Seed Oil. For me personally, tamanu oil is not suitable for my skin. I have tried pure tamanu oil product before, although it is said that tamanu oil help reduces acne for me the effect is the opposite. I should have read the ingredient list thoroughly before buying it.

The serum itself is a good product, giving a  healthy glow to the skin. However, does not suit my face. I end up using it on other areas like dĂ©colletage, the back of my neck and it works just fine without causing irritation. It probably does well on people that do not have a problem with the glow serum ingredient list.
