Pinctada South Sea Pearl Serum Review

Do you remember my review about Pinctada South Sea Pearl Soap? Apparently, this Filipino brand offers another product - the South Sea Pearl Serum! This product also contains pearl powder generated from pearl farms in Palawan, Philippines. Hurray to local skincare!

Pinctada South Sea Pearl Serum

This handcrafted serum aims to rejuvenate the skin to make it glowing and more youthful.

Key Ingredients: 

  • Pearl powder - enhances collagen production and shields the skin from free radical stress 
  • Beta Vulgaris Root Extract - acts as a natural moisturizer
  • Niacinamide - skin brightening

Application: Right after toner, I apply 3 drops of serum to my face and neck. 

Observation: Just like the soap, the packaging looks fancy. The 20 ml serum is contained in a glass dropper bottle. The liquid is white in color and has little glitters in it. I can see the little shimmers on my face right after I apply the serum. The fragrance is a combination of sweet and minty.

It's good because...

  1. apart from the glittery effect, this serum makes the skin bright and clear.
  2. absorbs well and no sticky feeling after application. 
  3. the menthol in the serum provides a nice cooling sensation.
  4. it does not clog my pores.

Even better if... the scent can be a little subtle. In my honest opinion, I think they overdid the fragrance.

Conclusion: This is the first time I encountered a product that has menthol feels on the skin and I appreciate it. In most parts, I like the performance of this serum but what hesitates me to use this on a daily basis is the fragrance. But then, fragrance is something subjective so if you're into minty scents, this is for you. 

You can purchase Pinctada South Sea Pearl Serum for P700 in Beauty MNL.
