My review:

The Gel Essence clear thick fluid glide super easy on my clean and tones skin. The essence feels like their in a second home. No allergy reaction or anything. It provide moisture and feels, well, comfortable in a way that I don't know how to explain. It's really feel like the essence belong to my skin. I never feels like this for a serum before, usually even thou' it is small there's still there some kind of reaction from my skin, this one feels like my skin just drank it all up and immediately the essence become part of my skin.

Now the Cream Gel. It's like a bunch of roses just squeezed and extracted captured in the bottle. I'm not really a fan of the scent that feels a bit sour but the pinkish cream gel is look so precious. Using it was pleasant too. The essence and cream gel work side by side creating a luminous skin burst with hydration and suppleness. I use it last night as my night cream and waking up the skin still feels comfortable, not oily, rejuvenate and so happy with the radiance it bring.

My verdict: You'll easily fall in love with this milky pink cream gel which feels soft and luxurious. The calm it brings reduce allergy and redness in a quick way. Stress, pollution, and all those bad habit from losing sleep also will not be visible on your face thanks to these two.  May I say Dynamic Duo?
