The Marine Placenta Skin Serum is a great option for those who want a little bit of everything in one (frosted glass) bottle. It tackles ageing (salmon placenta and collagen), provides hydration (Hyaluronic Acid), perceptibly tightens (Pepha®-Tight) and helps in restructuring (milk protein).

It is a water-based, almost weightless liquid that glides oh-so-easily beneath moisturiser. 3 spritzes are enough to tide me (both my mug and neck) over. I have to say, this is my first time to encounter a serum with a spray nozzle. Be that as it may, I still need to spritz the serum onto my hands and then rub it on - just like what I'd do with serums that come with a pump.

It works perfectly for me (oily T-zone, tight and dry elsewhere): it plumps nicely (lines are less noticeable now) and also hastens healing (hyperpigmentation doesn't take as long to fade). If you hate layering product in the daytime, then this serum works very well directly beneath sunscreen. Just give it a minute or two to sink in completely first.



Granted, the fishy smell (I wouldn't expect anything less for a marine based product) isn't the easiest to take to, but I got desensitised to it after a couple of uses. 6 weeks in and I can't even smell it now! I am lucky my nose quickly adapts to new stuff. Otherwise, I'd be unbearable in this review with my ceaseless moaning, haha!
