I recently posted a separate blog post about the new brand BELL FLOWER, and today is the day that I’m going to share my thoughts about their Heartleaf Houttuynia treat serum. I did try this for over a month to see the effects properly since it is a treatment serum.
It calms the sensitive skin caused by external stimuli and changes the skin to health. Unclogs unnecessary sebum and keratin, cleanses skin tone, and helps to lighten dark and dull skin.
Heartleaf is known to be rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. Aside from skin benefits, this also has a lot of medical and culinary use.
Price: $28.00 or Php 1,400
This serum contains Houttuynia cordata extract (4.4%) that soothes sensitive skin and responsible for oil-balance, Centella Asiatica extract that is responsible for wound healing and anti-wrinkle, Rosemary leaf oil which is responsible for giving radiance and suppleness to the skin.
Full ingredients includes: Water, Butylene glycol, Houttuynia cordata extract(4.4%), Alcohol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Ammonium acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer, C12-14 Pareth-12, Allantoin, Rosmarinus officinalis (Rosemary) leaf oil, Disodium EDTA, Centella asiatica extract
This serum comes in a light brown color and has an herb like scent to it but very mild.
Packaging: This serum comes in a matte finish glass bottle with a dropper. This also comes in a box with product information such as ingredient list and product description.
How to use: Apply a few drops of the serum onto your face before you apply your moisturizer. I apply the serum onto my fingers first before applying it to my face so that the dropper doesn’t get contaminated.
- I like how the serum is very light and has an oil like feeling to it. Not too keen on the herb scent, but I noticed that it does fade over time.
- It does leave a slightly tacky feeling and I blame the weather here in the Philippines because I only experience that tacky feeling on my AM routine when most of the day I don’t have my AC on. At my PM routine though, when my AC is on, this serum doesn’t leave that tacky feeling and gets absorbed by the skin quickly.
- My skin has been sensitive lately, and this helps calm down those irritations.
- I noticed that when I include this in my routine, my skin would be less oily the next morning, my skin would feel more plump.
This has been my go-to serum when I feel my face is irritated and needs an extra boost of nutrients. A little goes a long way for this serum. I think I can use this for a couple more months. I can conclude that this a good serum to invest in.
