The Korean skin care brand CREMORLAB & # 39; s T.E.N. is famous for its infusions with mineral-rich spring water and its dependence on some strong ingredients. The Miracle series brings with it serious hype. The ten. Miracle The Essence and the T.E.N. Miracle The Essential Cream, which anchors a soothing, moisturizing skin care product, was developed as a minimalist, all-season product for revitalizing all skin types – especially sensitive, stressed skin. The miracle factor? The burgundy water from a secret spring in Geumjin, South Korea, which is said to soothe and strengthen the skin while restoring elasticity. It is precisely this spring water that gives the essence its characteristic brownish shimmer.
I was more than a little excited to test both products because my sensitive combination skin has changed recently and, despite overworked skin care, has redness and dullness as well as occasional sun spots. I applied the essence to my cleansed and toned face day and night for two weeks before occasionally adding drops of serum for extra nutrition and trapping the moisture with a moderate layer of cream. To find out how my skin felt at the end of these two weeks, read on!
In a nutshell: TEN. stands for thermal water therapy, eco-energy and natural nutrition. With a total of only ten ingredients, this water-based essence is a simple, uncomplicated, yet powerful product that promises to correct dullness, strengthen the skin barrier and even stop pimples in their tracks. The magical ingredient Onsen-sui or mineral-rich spring water is used instead of purified water and contains mineral particles that are fine enough to penetrate the pores of the skin. The ingredient list also includes mistletoe extract, a powerful antioxidant, chestnut peel extract that smoothes wrinkles, and panthenol that aids healing. Most tempting is that it comes in an elegant brown bottle adorned with intricate illustrations!
How my skin fared: Slowly but surely, my skin became smoother, plumper, and less red over two weeks of continued use. Although the changes are not transformative – my pores remain enlarged and my skin tone is still uneven – they are visible enough to convince me that something is working in my regime. Since I've never really dealt with essences, I thought this might be the missing link. It certainly works well in my current skincare routine, which also includes COSRX's hydrated water toner, Dear's rich moisturizing serum, Klairs and of course CREMORLAB's essential cream.
In a nutshell: This gentle, fragrance-free moisturizer is again with the T.E.N. Water along with infusions of antioxidant-rich T.E.N. Mistletoe ™. The aim is to restore the oil-moisture balance of the skin, to promote rapid calming and to combat signs of early aging. It is free of parabens, mineral oils and artificial colors and very safe for sensitive, tired skin. By the way, those who are packaged just as nicely as I am will be thrilled to see that this comes in a chic looking orange-brown tub with a spatula included!
How my skin fared: My skin loves it. The texture is exemplary – neither too light nor too rich and oily. Pudding-soft, velvety and very absorbent, it melted into my skin within seconds and miraculously left no sticky residue. I even slammed something on my neck and cleavage for extra nutrition! The performance was quietly impressive in terms of moisture and soothing benefits. My skin gradually became plump over the course of the two weeks, while the redness and dullness, which was undoubtedly intensified by the constant use of face masks, subsided. I am a little less sold because of its anti-aging and skin strengthening properties – but these are still early days. Ultimately, I really appreciate the fact that the product is simple, solid, carefully manufactured and has real moisturizing properties. This may lag behind his claim to give the skin a miracle boost, but that's a minor issue.
CREMORLAB's two flagship products are a safe and solid rather than a groundbreaking choice for skin care. It is questionable whether this would affect T.E.N. Water or other less glamorous skin care products gave subtle but visible results. The essence was an important step in the preparation and hydration of my skin, while the cream was a pure pleasure, especially in terms of texture. In addition, both products are extremely compatible with a wide range of skin care products due to their relatively simple formulations. Transformative? Not quite. But a solid investment that slowly and safely improves the skin? Yes – and I definitely sign up for more.
