The Way I Used It

I used this serum at night, but not every night. But often enough. 

Though it can be used on day time, I never try it. 

I usually put around 1-2 pumps then spread it on my face and neck, and gentle pat it on my skin. Sometimes I do layer with another serum.. This serum I used it after toner and before moisturizer btw.

The Packaging, Scent, & Texture

The packaging is really pretty and looks luxury. I love that it comes in a blue pump bottle and to pump it out you need to twist the cap open. It feels so comfortable to hold this bottle, because the body of the bottle is designed that way.

It has no scent. And the texture is pastel blue. I love the texture and the colour because they are really pretty. I just can't move on when I first saw the texture.

The texture at first looks like gel, but then when spread it, it kinda burst like water, I think the texture is really cool and something that I was not expected at all.

My Thoughts On The Result

At first, I couldn't really see any big changes, jst my skin feel soft when I woke the next morning. But I see the changes when I used it diligently (3 times a week), and after a month, I can see that my skin texture has improved, I think that's the biggest changed I ever had!

I'm so happy with the result. And I also can see my skin is brighten up.

My skin tone has improved. It also hydrates my skin and I feel my skin soft & smooth.

This exfoliating serum has never breaks me out or dehydrated my skin. Really love it!

Tbh, I'm so excited to share this review because I've been enjoying Nature's Palette products, and this one too! It feels good when a product works really well with you!

This product is really gentle on my skin, but at the same time give quite a powerful impact, maybe because it has been awhile since I use exfoliating serum. And this one just proves how a good exfoliating serum like this can change your skin to be better.

I really enjoy the process of trying up majorly because I didn't get any break outs hahahaha.

I of course do still have skin texture and flaws, it's just that this serum has improved my skin condition, and it shows!

Rating: 9.5/10

Thank you so much to Nature's Palette for sending me this amazing serum!

-To brighten skin complexion.
-To fade fresh dark marks.
-To deliver sufficient hydration.
-To reduce skin redness.
-To improve skin discolouration.

-To enhance barrier repair.


Water, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Niacinamide, Tranexamic Acid, Ascorbyl Glucoside, Yeast Polysaccharides (Beta Glucan), Alpha-Arbutin, Curcuma Zedoaria (White Turmeric) Root Extract, Tremella Fuciformis (Snow Mushroom) Extract, Xanthan Gum, Phenoxyethanol, Chlorphenesin, Sodium Hyaluronate, Allantoin, Ethylhexylglycerin, Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate.

The Way I Used It:

I used this serum before moisturizer or any other serum and after toner or essence. I love to use this serum in the morning because I personally think it boost my other skincare and brighten my skin.
I also use this at night, but not as much as I use in the morning.

One or two pumps are enough. Three pumps would be a little too much. So you actually can saves a lot of this product if you are a student. If you have small face, one pump is definitely enough.
If you have big face like mine and I also love to put it on my neck, it's definitely two pumps.

The Packaging, Scent, & Texture:

This new packaging serum comes in a cute pump bottle and beautiful pastel yellow and white. I love this look so much! It looks so pretty and I enjoy taking pictures of this product for my content!
There is no fragrance in this serum which I love.

The serum texture is light gel and transparent, not sticky at all. it absorbs fast and well on my skin.
I love the texture so much, and because the texture is light, it's one of the reason why I love to use this in the morning because it doesn't feel heavy at all on my skin.

My Thoughts On The Result:

This hands down is one of MY FAVOURITE BRIGHTENING SERUM from local brand.

I love the previous version of this serum, but now that I tried on the new upgraded version, I totally am in love with this serum, no doubt.

The first thing I notice is it hydrates my skin really well even though if I only used one pump. And then I can see it brighten my skin just like if I'm using a brightening sheetmask.

This serum has two kind of results. The immediate one and also the long term result.

If I need a quick fix and to brighten up my skin fast, I use this and reapply it if I need to.
It gives my skin a booster and glowing effect. It is also soothing to my skin.

For the long term result, I can see that it fades my scars after a few weeks of continuously using this serum. My skin tone improved, and I can see it's easy to apply other skincare because this serum works like a booster.

I totally love this serum, and I wish it will come in a bigger bottle in future. Because I just need this in my stash all the time. 

Kudos to Yello Skincare for making the best brightening serum. It works really good.
I have so much love for this serum.

Rating: 10/10

The Way I Used It

I love to use this both day and night but at night it really helps me to boost my skin on the next day.
I usually use 4 to 6 drops and tap it to my skin.
Sometimes, I love to use my essence before my toner, so with this essence I also love to use before my toner. I think on my skin, essence works well when I put them immediately after cleansing.

But also maybe it depends on the texture of the product itself.

The Packaging, Scent & Texture

The essence came in a huge bottle, it is 210ml. I love the nice minimal packaging of the essence. It looks aesthetic as well in my opinion. It really easy to grip the bottle.

The texture is watery and light, I love this type of texture in essence. It easy and fast to absorbs on skin.
It has a very very light citrusy scent, actually its hard to notice it unless you really smell the essence.

My Thoughts On The Result


Yes that's definitely me screaming because I do love this essence! hahaha

But to put this in a nice way, my skin has always love galactomyces, I think the first time I tried galactomyces was in 2017, and it just works so fine with me. And I definitely have no doubts on this essence truthfully.

This essence hydrates my skin, give me the glow, brighten up my skin, and soothes my skin.

When I first started to use this essence, my skin wasn't in good condition. And my skin just love this because it calms my irritated skin, it hydrates my dehydrated skin, and it soothes my redness.
I know I keep on praising this, but maybe my skin just love this y'know.

Though I was paid for IG review, this review here on my website is not a paid one, and yet I still love it and keep on praising it.

I always know galactomyces and my skin are best friend, but this essence is just on another level for my skin.

This essence is definitely gonna be on top of my essence list from now on.

Rating: 10/10 (I love it what can I do)
