Hii Lovelies! I'm back with another review this week~ VB Effector for sebum care from It's Skin! They have this huge line of serums and a big variety of kinds that can suit different needs! Even for shrinking pores but I didn't order that :P
I chose the VB perfector because my skin turned super oily this Summer!
Description from f2plus1 ebay store (maybe they took it from It's Skin website): Sebum Regulation of Vitamin B. Oily Skin is essential to the recommended hagopeun. Oil Free vitamin suppress excessive sebum secretion and acne clean the skin moisturizing.
That basically means it controls oil, prevents acne (?) and moisturizes at the same time.
On skincare routines, you usually use serum after toner then apply emulsion or/and moisturizing cream. Every time I tried to do that I ended up with a sticky face even though it feels like it's very absorbing, it seems to have a bad reaction with the Moistful Flower Cream from Etude House, Effaclar duo from La Roche Posay and Oil Free moisturizer from Neutrogena. My skin was sticky for half an hour or so and felt like I have put a ton of products! My skin absorbed it instantly after application but it didn't seem to let the moisturizers get absorbed.
So, a few days ago I used this serum after applying the Effaclar Duo cream and it worked better. However, I felt everything sinking in and my pores opened up a lot! At least my face wasn't sticky...
As for oil control... it works so-so for me. Moisturizing? yes. It's okay to use by itself though. The only thing I love about this serum is the smell which I can't describe it :P It reminds me of sugar!
I'm not sure why products don't work well for me lately!
MY RATING 3/5
Because it doesn't seem to really work well for me but I do get better results using by itself.
Have you tried any serums of this line? Or even this one, I would like to hear your thoughts!
