I think I am probably stuck up on a current skin care routine. Hmm. Though it may sound a little weird (believe me, I never thought I'd use them on my teenage years), but I tell you, I am currently using age defying products. I am just 19 years old with a severe case of pimple and acne marks who love me so much that they do not ever want to go away. Like ever. I want a dermatologist to take care of everything, but my meager student budget won't let me. Now, I'm depending on my future salary. Lol.
While I do not expect these products to work for me, I started to notice the big difference on my face. And who would have thought that I will be at this point when I'm already counting on them to keep my skin moisturized and hydrated! Well, they are probably the best skin care set ever.

This is probably my most favorite out of the three. This does not lather like hell but you can still feel that your skin is well-cleansed once dried and won't leave your skin parched. It smells fruity which I did hate at first, but I got used to it eventually. It's actually gentle with a PH of 5.5-6.0 which is effective in preventing and treating dry skin.
I use this facial wash every morning and night and I just love how brightened, moisturized and hydrated my face always becomes. It has the power to make my face soft and smooth as it can get and has added properties to even out skin tone and is perfect for acne/problem skin.
Age Defy Tamarind and Kiwi Fruit Toner significantly improves skin elasticity, hydration and smoothness. This fruit and botanical rich face toner contains powerful hydrating, smoothing, moisturizing and anti-aging actives from Kiwi Fruit Extracts And Tamarind Seed Extract which contains high levels of AHA and Vitamin C with Tamarind Extracts found to outperform Hyaluronic Acid in skin moisturization and the smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles, which is a great benefit in skin care.

So I am using this one every after wash. I love how moisturizing this toner is without the drying properties of alcohol. I don't like the scent at first but just like the facial wash, I eventually got used to it. However, it's very moisturizing that my face oils up pretty fast. It is but alright as I could apply face powders after (during the day) or just let it stay like that overnight. After all, no one would be seeing me and say "Hey, your face resembles an oil slick already!"
Upon application, I notice that it slightly bubbles on my face but fades after seconds. Is it how it cleanses my pores? I sometimes think I need not to use any facial wash prior to toning my face because it really does a great job in keeping my pores unclog.
For: Normal, Oily, Combination, Acne-Prone, Dry, Mature Skin.

Being a serum, it's very lightweight on the skin yet sticky upon application which subsides after a minute. Also, a little goes a long way so 30ml would probably last me for two-three months. Again, I find the smell a little off-putting but that's just one of my concerns. Another one is that the product is actually leaking out of the nozzle so you better store it upright. Additionally, it's not really moisturizing on dry skin (unless when really paired up with the toner).
On the brighter side, this serum works really great in keeping my oil at bay. There are times when I feel like I want my face to rest from everything and I just use a facial wash and this one and when I wake up, my face is not that oily compared on usual days. You can also feel your skin's suppleness and you will really look glowing and all brightened up because of this serum!
I would not change my mind. Never. This is still the best skin care set (in the organic world) that I have tried after I went back to what I love and hate about these products through this review. Not only they compliment each other but my skin type too (which is very oily, pimple-prone and has large pores). Continuous use helped me alleviate the redness around my nose and cheek area. It also lighten up some of my minor pimple scars! I bet you can never tell how much I love this set as the facial wash is already half-emptied. Lol! I really recommend it to any skin type and to all ages. Experience its wonders now and see for yourself why I love Primea Beauty kit!
