Review: Primera Super Sprout Serum

I’m a hardcore fan of Sulwhasoo’s First Care Serum, but from time to time, I deviate to other brands just for the purpose of reviewing (and also to secretly hope for a slightly cheaper alternative). Since I’d already decided to invest in Primera’s Miracle Seed Essence, I decided to conveniently toss this into the basket as well, based on the staff’s recommendation.

I say…

The Packaging: A short, stout little bottle with a pump system. It’s relatively stable on its own.

The Scent: A herbal, aromatherapeutic scent.

The Texture: A relatively lightweight gel consistency that is absorbed into the skin (after some very very odd and slight frothing/lathering) and leaves no sticky/greasy residue.

The Verdict: I’ve been using this for several weeks – close to a month perhaps, and unfortunately, I haven’t seen any drastic improvement in my skin. First, I have to say that there’s no adverse reaction (no breakouts, no stinging or itching), but that aside, I thought this would improve my skin. I don’t see much improvement in firmness/radiance (as stated in their website) – in fact, I might actually have noticed the skin getting duller (I sent a selfie to a friend during one of our random night chats, and the first reaction was “eh how come your skin isn’t as white as usual?”). -gasp-. Now I’m not saying that this causes your skin to get duller – I’m just saying that sadly, this doesn’t work for me – to the point that I’m not gonna bother finishing the bottle. I’m switching back to my Sulwhasoo First Care Serum nao~
