Review: DermaGold Miracle C+ and Skin Elixir (Radiant Essentials System)

Lately, I added 2 new skin radiant products into my skincare regime; the DermaGold Miracle C+ and DermaGold Skin Elixir.

If you read my blog, you would have already know that I am very passionate about whitening skincare. One of the skincare ranges that DermaGold has is the Radiant Essentials System which promises radiance of the skin from within. I am excited to have tried the DermaGold Miracle C+ and DermaGold Skin Elixir and I am going to share my reviews of these 2 products in this post.

After trying DermaGold Miracle C+ and Skin Elixir, I swear by these 2 products for skin brightening and sebum control results without having to undergo laser or impulse light to improve my skin condition. Results are visible upon every use. Let me show you the effectiveness of these 2 products through the images below.

Before applying the DermaGold Miracle C+ and Skin Elixir, it is noticeable that my skin looks dull with a little redness, that's likewise for the skin on my face too.

Miracle C+ comes in a light-weight, colourless, watery texture. It is so light that it feels like toner solution on my skin. After spreading out on my skin, it got instantly absorbed into my skin without leaving any residual on my skin. There is no artificial fragrance or paraben added, therefore it is safe on sensitive skin. After application, it makes my skin feels slightly hydrated, brightened and it reduced the excess sebum on my skin. My skin feels matte even though the weather in Singapore is frequently hot and humid.

My rating: 3.5/5

Skin Elixir comes in a yellowish-orange serum texture. The serum feels light-weight on my skin. Although it takes slightly longer than Miracle C+ to be fully absorbed into my skin but it did not cause any discomfort on my skin. Skin Elixir has a pleasant floral scent and it helps to smoothen and hydrate my skin. The brightening result is most visible on my skin after application of Skin Elixir. This product worked like magic on my skin without causing any skin irritation. 

My rating: 4.5/5

Both products feel gentle on my combination, sensitive skin and no adverse effect encountered after usage. It is advisable to apply sunblock after using these products to better protect the skin against the harmful sun's rays.
