I have a confession to make: I have been sitting here for, I kid you not, ten minutes straight trying to decide what salutation I want to use, to no avail, so we will all just have to sit here with only the knowledge that something is missing to keep us company.
Here is another confession, while we’re at it: the linguist in me is showing; I really want to diagram the above sentence.
If you’re wondering, “Jiawun, why are you bombarding us with so much bullshit today,” that’s because I’m not Jiawun. I’m Jiawun’s extremely digression-prone older sister, Sockwun, pronounced /sɒkwun/ for my fellow linguists and IPA aficionados out there.
Anyway, I’m here to bring you our latest review, a review of the Nutox Advanced Serum Concentrate. Yes, it’s our review because I write for Beauty Nerd by Night now; surprise! I don’t want to digress too much, despite it being my favorite pastime, so let’s jump into the review and leave this new development for my next post.
Nutox Advanced Serum Concentrate (RM79.90/30ml)
In Nutox’s own words, you can:
Defy aging with this newly formulated Nutox Serum Concentrate. This lightweight Serum speeds up the production of the skin’s natural collagen, elastin & hyaluronic acid. Be amazed by its instant & long-term lifting effects. Skin becomes elastic, firmer & smoother.
Let’s break that description down. Nutox claims that its Advanced Serum Concentrate is a lightweight anti-aging serum that can instantly lift your skin, making and keeping it elastic, firm, and smooth. Does it live up to this hype?
First and foremost, I have to mention this: the dropper that dispenses the product is quite awkward to use. Because the dispenser is more pump than dropper, it doesn’t always suck enough serum into the tube, so it sometimes takes a couple of pumps to get the five drops you need to cover your face and neck.
That aside, the serum itself is very lightweight, and it absorbs into the skin very easily. When you open up the bottle and dispense the serum onto the back of your hand, which is what I do, you can immediately feel and see that lightweight property in the gel-like serum. Plus, it smells amazing! The scent is floral, reminiscent of roses and jasmine.
“With how lightweight and absorbent this serum is, all I had to do was apply it to the skin. Immediately, I felt my skin tighten and smooth.”
With serums, I usually have to apply it to my face, then dab the product fully into my skin for it to absorb, but with how lightweight and absorbent this serum is, all I had to do was apply it to the skin. Immediately, I felt my skin tighten and smooth. My past experience with other serums has always been that serums, when their effects are immediate, make my skin feel more stretched than tight, if that makes any sense, and it’s uncomfortable. With the Nutox Advanced Serum Concentrate, however, that’s not the case. It smooths as it tightens, so the result is skin that looks firmer.
There is one downside, though: that result doesn’t last very long. I admit that after a few days of using the serum, my face remained tight, firm, and smooth, even after I stopped using it. Unfortunately, the effects didn’t last past those few days.
♡ Absorbs easily
♡ Tightens skin
♡ Smooths skin
♡ Instant results
♡ Smells amazing
♡ Dropper quite awkward to use
♡ Effects are not long-term
Tl;dr: The Nutox Advanced Serum Concentrate isn’t bad, but I’m not in love with it. It applies well, absorbs quickly, and tightens without uncomfortably pulling on the skin, but the effects only last as long as you use the product, and I don’t like the idea of having to depend on it for the rest of my life if I want to keep its effects for the rest of my life.
