Hello lovelies,

finally I have the time to finish writing about these wonderful products I’ve been using for some time. I am amazed on how the texture can be so light and fulfilling at the same time, it was like instantly absorbed. Perhaps it is due to the water-based ingredients, ohh yums!

And just a bit of history here, before all of these goodies come, the team from V10Plus ask me to do some check list on my skin condition. Where later they’ll give me products suitable for my skin based on consultation sheet, cool isn’t it?! So the result are suitable items for my unique skin. 

-*-


I’ve done my checking and there are items that get more than 3 points: BIO CELL Serum and Ceramide Serum. The team from V10Plus add one more serum for me, the Collagen Serum. An ingredients that I used to avoid since somehow it made the acne appears. Will V10Plus Collagen Serum gives my skin the same effect?

-*-



To understand a product, I have to use it accordingly, V10Plus is equipped with step by step guide as well … what, no toner before the serum? Nope! Apparently the serum texture itself is quite light and doesn’t need anything before usage, a clean and dry skin is enough.

-*-


Here are my babies, the Collagen, Ceramide, and BIO CELL serums. The one that I’m really curious about is Ceramide, I know I’ve been using Ceramide based ingredients for my hair, as it helps the damage part to be strong and healthy again. I guess it’s not just my hair needs the Ceramide, my skin’s too.

-*-


The bottles are in different colors, they are so cute, and I think the texture of the serums should be the same to0, or isn’t? Soon, I’ll find out.

-*-



From 10 different ingredients, I am going to review 3 of them, heehee so excited!!

Here are some info from www.v10plus.co.jp:

What is BIO CELL?

BIO CELL encourages the production of energy in the skin cells. BIOCELL in your skin continues to decrease as you get older. V 10 plus slows down the symptom of aging very similar in molecular structure to estrogen. Estrogen is called the “beauty hormone”, which keeps the skin youthful. But estrogen secretion decreases dramatically from your late 40’s, so you have to supply BIO CELL to your skin.

BIO CELL is good for…

DNA Repair, Skin Cells Repair, Anti-wrinkle, Prevention of melanin production
What is Ceramide?

Ceramide is the main component of intercellular lipid, which keeps water in the skin and also protects your skin from external stimulus, such as air drying or ultraviolet ray. Lack of Ceramide depresses the barrier function of skin and causes dryness and roughness of the skin.

Ceramide is good for…

Dryness and sensitive skin. It fills in the damaged horny layer and enforces the barrier function of skin. V 10 PLUS Ceramide serum uses vegetable Ceramide, which is extracted from rice polishings.

What is Collagen?

Collagen dominates about 80% of dermis and keeps the elasticity and juvenility of the skin. It decreases after your mid-20s, so you have to replenish collagen to keep your skin looking young. 

Collagen is good for…

Wrinkles and elasticity. V 10 PLUS serum uses marine collagen which is  FRESH SEA BREAM’s SCALE. It contains more amino acids and its molecule is smaller than the pig’s and cow’s collagen, so it has more penetration power. Also, as it contains marine elastin, you can regain soft skin with this combination. 

Neat, right?! All the details provided by them and please do read on their Brand History to learn more about V10Plus.

-*-


The one I’m going to take pictures is the green one, Ceramide Serum, why? The texture of the serum is the one I found to the thickest and almost like a gel. BIO CELL and Collagen are runnier than Ceramide. This is fascinating for me ^__^ since maybe from all those 10 they all have different viscosity according to each of their ingredients.

-*-


Currently all of them are made in Japan and have the exact same clear transparent colors. I found no allergy or any kind of discomfort from using them (all three of them).

-*-


I uses them daily according to my moods and figuring out my skin’s need at that time of application, so I’ve used all three, mixed all three, and any condition I want. One thing for sure, each usage is 3 drops. It could be 3 drops of Ceramide, 3 drops of BIO CELL, 3 drops of Collagen, 2 drops of Ceramide + 1 drop of BIO CELL, 1 drop of Collagen + 1 drop of BIO CELL + 1 drop of Ceramide, etc, it was a very fun activity for me, which kinda made me wish having all 10 of them ^__^ just to satisfy my ideas or creativity heehee.

The best thing about this serum are they contain NO paraben, NO chemical fragrance (they literally smell like nothing at all), NO artificial color, NO mineral oil, when opened it has to be finished within 6 months, so yes, they are included as fresh products.

-*-


Like mentioned, I’ve used all three of them including the Collagen, and I’ve suffered zero acne. The Ceramide is a huge hit for me since it help my skin to retain moisture/hydration way better than any other serum I’ve used. I know I have to keep using them so I can see visible result, but so far for these past few weeks the feeling and sensation I get is just wonderful. Like the products are custom made for my skin.

The BIO CELL actually feels like nothing on my skin and so far I haven’t found new wrinkles/lines, hopefully in the long run it’ll help reducing the wrinkles or at least keeping me stay younger longer ^___^

And I’ve tried them with other products from other brands as well and so far they are okay. Okay as in able to be used together and in fact, adding more benefits to my skin. Since the serums are all water based they are better to be used before any other products that may contain oil or other ingredients that will block the absorption. None of other products that I’ve tried to be as light as V10Plus serums, so suggestion from the V10Plus team about using it before any other product from other brand is proven to be correct.

I know we are used to get a serum in the market which already made just as it is, in V10Plus customers can have a precised ingredients which is benefit for their individualized skin. 10 serums with hundreds of possibilities for mix and match. For me these serums aren’t just my serums for life but things may chance, my hormones, age, or I can move to another country with different climates, and changes happens. I can easily get another series of serums from V10Plus, so I think they are not the kind of unchangeable, one size fits for life, permanent serums. They are like serums that grow with you where you can choose the one that fit you at that moment. 

Will I keep using it? Definitely! Will I recommend these products to my loved ones? Yes!


Hello ladies,

another product from V 10 Plus. It’s the Cleanser from the Luminous Series.

-*-



Details from http://www.v10plus.co.jp/ :

Type: Luminous

Clearer skin day after day


Brightening gel cleanser that helps to cleanse impurities thoroughly without ripping off the skin’s natural moisture film. It promotes brightening for a clear and luminous complexion. It contains magnesium ascorbyl phosphate to brighten dull-looking skin caused by external environmental pollution while aloe barbadensis leaf extract and rice bran extract help to improve skin barrier function and moisturise the skin to keep it clean, smooth and supple.

Directions: Squeeze a pea sized amount of cleanser, lather it with water and massage over the face. Rinse off well with water

Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate or MAP is known as Vit C in a safe form, here’s a details from paulaschoice.com:

magnesium ascorbyl phosphate

Rating: Best

Antioxidants , Vitamins

Form of vitamin C that is considered stable and an effective antioxidant for skin (Sources: Photochemistry and Photobiology, June 1998, pages 669–675; and Journal of Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Analysis, March 1997, pages 795–801). This form of vitamin C is also known to increase skin’s hydration levels and improve its elasticity (Source: Skin Research and Technology, August 2008, pages 376–380).
For skin lightening, there is only a single study showing it to be effective for inhibiting melanin production (Source: Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, January 1996, pages 29–33). The study concluded that a moisturizer with a 10% concentration of magnesium ascorbyl phosphate “suppressed melanin formation…. The lightening effect was significant in 19 of 34 patients with chloasma or senile freckles and in 3 of 25 patients with normal skin.”  We’re only aware of one product (Dermalogica MAP-15 Regenerator) that contains the amount of magnesium ascorbyl phosphate the study indicated is necessary for lightening skin.

I think Paula’s Choice website is my favorite place to go now, she helps me a lot in understanding ingredients and therefore understanding a product way better, from ingredients to what it actually does to the skin and all it’s benefits. Please do refer directly to the page for the rest of the ingredients above.

Now. back to the review, so, the product does contain a very good ingredient which Paula’s said to be the best (for that one particular ingredient, the other will have to depend on the quality since there are several types and forms).

-*-


Let’s open it up and review more from my experience point of view. The packaging is very simple and looks like a pearl has landed all over ^___^ Doesn’t look expensive or luxurious. The details and product details given is adequate and right to the point.

-*-


In English and Japanese since the product is sold in Singapore and Japan. The pearly white packaging also represent what’s inside, a pearly white creamy gel.

-*-


So easy to lather on and gives enough foaming action. But a foaming tools from Japan would be great as a partner (that white thingy, which made from soft material, kinda plastic-ky, or perhaps rubbery) oh well, an image does means thousand words, here it is:

A bubble foam net (and I miss Japan so much) in Japan there are so many bubble foam net to help consumer to achieve that perfect foam. Since they studied that the denser and thicker it is, the better it helps cleaning the face.

Use it with the cleanser (or just about any cleanser you have at home) and a perfect foam will emerge.

-*-



(the image above is the cleanser without bubble foam net)

Applied the foam on the face and gently massage the skin well with it. If makeup is used, especially waterproof ones, use a makeup cleanser first before this cleanser. V10Plus Luminous Series Brightening Cleanser is not made to remove makeup, and I think it is best for daily debris or as a double cleanser after makeup removing or cleansing milk.

-*-


Result: A clean face without striping the moisture off, gentle yet gives the skin enough clean feeling. I find it suitable to be use daily and love to have it at home.

For someone who always says we need a lot of products and an all in one rarely works. I stumbled to the one that actually does.

-*-



It was like a magical product for me, used after a serum and that’s it, no need lotion, emulsion, essence, and so on. Just serum, V10Plus Nano gel 5 in 1 and sun protection or BB Cream when I want to use makeup afterward. It is a wonderful product indeed.

-*-


The texture is light yet hydrating enough, slightly cool and refreshing, no grease, oily nor residue found. The skin feels moist but not overwhelmingly done. I don’t know how to explain this but the skin get enough plumping effect with no leftover, like the skin drink it all up and be happy about it. It’s like snow, or water drops on the skin, but effective in enhancing my skin to be and look better, pampering and satisfying. So it is really a toner, milk, moisturizer, and base in one. I don’t know what does it means by brightener, but I think it was like a pre makeup base that helps lifted up the look for that soft radiant glow, because that’s what I get as well.

-*-


Overall, this multi-function gel is a must try item from V10Plus, I’m in love with the texture and how it felt on my skin: unique and wonderful. I’ve used it these past few days and my skin doesn’t suffer any discomfort in any form. I’m not recommending the product as a night cream, personally I love a night cream with a more hydrating effect. So I only use the V 10 Plus Nano Gel 5 in 1 during the day and before I put on my makeup. It helps my makeup to stay on longer than ever before without being dry or looking matte nor unnatural. No grease as well so the makeup doesn’t easily melts away.  Suitable to be used in a hot/humid temperature. It does help the skin to appear fairer and achieve that luminous complexion with the lightest feeling possible.

V 10 Plus Nano Gel 5 in 1 is available in Japan and Singapore.

Try it to believe it!
