Ingredient analysis: Skincarisma
What is fermented skincare?
Fermentation is actually a natural process where active ingredients are broken down into smaller parts so that their nutrients and minerals can be absorbed into the skin. The ingredients become richer in antioxidants, vitamins and amino acids. You heard it a lot of times when it comes to food. Kimchi, kombucha, salami, sauerkraut or Swedish filmjölk is fermented products. And we all know the benefits for your stomach and intestines when eating fermented products. So, keep that up.
But the process of fermentation is also very good for your skin. Its benefits for the skin is;

My thoughts on COSRX 95 Galactomyces Whitening Power Essence
I really like Cosrx galactomyces whitening power essence. It took some time before I realized that and if that happens to you, just take it out of your routine for a couple of weeks and then reintroduce it again and see if you see any difference. If not, maybe it’s not doing much for you. First time I tried this was when I got 10 samples send to me, I wasn’t really sure what I thought of the product then so I needed some more testing to be certain what I think of the product.
It does not have a scent, which is great for me, since I prefer my skincare products to be without a smell. Except perfume that is.
The fluid is clear and a little thicker than water and it penetrates really fast into the skin without leaving a sticky residue.
The packaging is simple but elegant and comes in a hard bottle with a pump. I prefer this over a normal bottle because it is so easy to get the right amount of product.
What did Cosrx galactomyces whitening power essence do for my skin?
It really helps to even out my skin tone. I am red around my cheeks, nose and chin. And it really made a different. Actually, more than the Missha first treatment essence.
It also gives my skin a different glow which I really like, and I feel that I look more fresh. I like that it helps with hydration. My skin is super dry and winter is coming fast so I need all the hydration I can get, so if you have dry uneven skin, this is a really great product for you.
