Teradia TD Repair Emulsion Serum First Impressions

16-06-30-12-11-23-822_deco

While scoping out the gudetama collection on Jolse, I saw on their banner that they were looking for 10 testers for the Teradia emulsion serum and it was the last day for entries. I figured why not and BOOM email from Jolse. Wasn’t like they sought me out like them legit bloggers, I had to apply >.<

Anywho, Because I received the serum 6/19/2016 I’ve only been able to use it for 9 days. For products that have simpler claims like hydration, oil control, and smoothing/plumping I tend to only need a week or two to see results or lack thereof in effect. But since this serum claims to also whiten skin, it’s best to test it out over a month or longer to give skin sufficient time to turnover the deeper layers. Although my copious use of timeless vitamin C causes my skin to exfoliate faster so I think a month is definitely enough time to do a more thorough review.

But first can we talk about the brand and their incredible Instagram feed

Personal Experience

My skin type

 

  • Dry Skin
  • Non- Sensitive (literally have not reacted to hundreds of products over the course of my lifetime)
  • Concerns
    • blackheads around the chin and on nose
    • The occasional pimple
    • inhibiting wrinkle formation

Appearance & texture: its definitely between a serum and an emulsion/lotion i.e. not as thick as usual emulsions but thicker and creamier than most serums.

Scent: light herbal aroma dissipates after a short time

Sensations: none

Effect: All I have so far is moisturizing

What’s its supposed to do: brighten my complexion, but since doing my sunscreen test 2k16 I’ve become much much tanner…. which defeats the purpose of this brightening serum… gad

Also Jolse requested that I include a picture of myself with the bottle… I’m not sure why I’m at an angle… I’m not good at taking selfies.

Final verdict: since I have dry skin I do prefer creamier products like this emulsion serum. I’m going to keep using it, but I think I might see better results towards the ends of the year and not the beginning of summer where my melanin starts to come in.

If you’re interested in buying this, it is available at Jolse.com for $63.73 with free shipping

I’d recommend this to someone who’s maybe looking for something that feels like OHUI but is a little easier on the wallet. Also to people who want diamonds on their skin.

update: as of 6/30/2016 it appears to be sold out already >.< waaaat

  1. I WANT ALL THE BLING!!!
    Excellent review as always dood! I always enjoy the ingredient listings and the CosDNA references. Also, your American pose is extra super pretty dude. Eye makeup is on fleek for sure there.

  2. This is my first time commenting in here, but really wanted to thank you for the Cosdna recognition :3 that was a hard list haha.

    Really liked this emulsion-serum, I didn’t expected some improvement having so little time to test it, but somehow I did have some changes.

    Loved the Pancake picture, she’s so cute and fluffy.
    hugs!
