Review: Cos De BAHA Arbutin Niacinamide Serum + Skin Care Update
I’ve been using Cos De BAHA Arbutin Niacinamide Serum (lavender label) for over a 1 month. I can’t rave about this serum because I haven’t noticed big changes in my skin while using it. It’s meh. As I said before (when I introduced this serum), arbutin is a skin brightening/whitening ingredient. Just putting this out there, I’m not trying to whiten my skin. I’m trying to fade acne scars and even out my skin tone. Honestly, I think my other skin care products are doing a far better job at fading acne scars and evening out my complexion (like Vitamin C, other skin care products with Niacinamide). Also, giving my skin time to heal is helping with the acne scars too. Time heals the skin way better than skin care products from my experience. If you leave your skin alone, the acne scars will eventually disappear by themselves. With that being said, I won’t purchase this serum again. A lot of my other skin care products contain the ingredient Niacinamide. It seems repetitive having multiple serums with the same ingredient in it.
Since I’m back to vegan (veganism isn’t just a diet, I will do my best to choose vegan + cruelty-free skin care and makeup), I will not continue to use Cos De BAHA Snail Mucin HA Serum any longer in my skin care routine in the future. I’m going to finish the whole product though (what I have left). Why? Because I can’t return it, and I’m not going to toss it out. That would be a waste of $$$. I won’t repurchase it when I’m done. Even though it says that it’s ‘not tested on animals’ on the label, it’s obviously not vegan. Snail Mucin comes from snails. I must admit, it was a good moisturizer. It could be the hyaluronic acid that kept my skin hydrated though. Who knows. I haven’t noticed amazing changes in my skin just from the Snail Mucin HA Serum by itself, so I’m OK with giving it up. There’s always something better out there that’s vegan and cruelty-free. ? You know how I love trying out new skin care products (unless it breaks me out, lol).
