It has been a long time since I have done any product review, due to a pimple outbreak caused by a product which I have used. My ROM date is drawing near, and I’m glad to be given a chance to review the 3 treasures in the Bio-essence Royal Jelly + ATP V-Face series! Hopefully my face will be sharper on the big day

Star ingredients - Royal Jelly which has advance anti-ageing effects and ATP (energy source) which helps to improve micro-circulation to renew and repair skin.
I was given the 3 treasures of this new series to try out, and they are the Deep Exfoliating Gel, the Radiant Youth Essence and the Face Lifting Cream.
Deep Exfoliating Gel
This product, on top of the Royal Jelly & ATP, contains Angelica and Wolfberry extracts which provide nutrients and vitamins for nourishing your skin. It is a mild and gentle exfoliator which can be used daily.
The gel reminds me of a certain exfoliating gel I used back in my JC days. It works in the same way – apply to dry skin and massage in a circular motion until small flakes of dead skin and dirt appear. Then, rinse off with water and use a cleanser. I’m pretty charmed by the Bio-essence Deep Exfoliating Gel with Royal Jelly & ATP because it simply works; my skin feels very smooth and looks refined after using this gel for just a couple of days in a row. After using it for a longer time, I’m convinced that daily usage will reduce the formation of black heads and pimples as the dead skin and dirt will not be able to build up.
Radiant Youth Essence
The essence contains green tea extracts on top of other great ingredients to slow down aging. It claims to help lock in moisture and keep skin soft, smooth and healthy.
When I first tried out this product, I was very shocked at the oily texture. It’s so oily that I consider washing it off. But after reading the directions once more, I decide to massage it into my skin and wait for the essence to be absorbed. Thankfully, the absorption was good, and my face didn’t end up looking like an oil slick. I haven’t used it long enough to experience the anti-aging benefits, but this essence definitely helps in makeup application. Normally, when I use foundation, I will notice that there are drier areas on my face where the foundation cake up, creating a powdery look. I hate it when that happens! But after using the youth essence, I noticed that this problem has lessened, perhaps because of the moisturizing effect it provides. So, kudos to this, my favourite product out of the 3 products I have received.
I also tried using the essence on my arms and legs, especially since I have dry skin at those area and I don’t want to look scaly on my wedding day. On my arms and legs, the essence gets absorbed super fast, so I’m guessing my skin at those areas is really dry and thirsty!
Face Lifting Cream
One interesting ingredient used in this cream is the Bio Rice Fermentation Essence. Doesn’t this remind you of the SK II Piteria, which is also from rice? (In fact, the steam from steamed rice is extremely nourishing for our face, so, do steam your face with that whenever you open up a pot of freshly steamed rice!)
I haven’t actually notice any visible slimming or tightening of my skin after using this lifting cream, but I guess this will not be an overnight process. What I like about this cream is that it’s very easily absorbed by the skin and doesn’t cause any shine. It’s a great moisturizer to be used in the day before makeup application. Hopefully, the V-shape effect will happen over time.
