I’m sadly very far from blessed with perfect skin. While my skin condition has changed over the years, the one thing that has remained a consistency with it, is the fact I suffer from hormonal acne and scar quite easily from said acne breakouts. I have a mixture of deep set “pick axe” type scars and I also have some darkened skin level scars as well. These are more noticeable on my chin area, where I’m most likely to get a breakout. Because of this, I’m always on the lookout for products that can help reduce these markings.

Urang Brightening Blue Oil Serum = Ultimate radiance and natural glow

Introducing Urangformerly Holi Aroma, a Korean beauty brand focusing on giving you natural skincare combining natural ingredients with the founding owner, Jina Lee’s knowledge of aromatherapy. Aiming to bring you skincare that is safe for all skin types and for any age that is both effective and good for your skin.
Today, I am going to be talking about one of their serums, namely the Brightening Blue Oil Serum.

Packaging

The packaging of both sizes of the product is both so minimal and gorgeous. The 15ml version that I have here simply combined a glass container with a silver dropper. Letting the natural blue colour of the serum play the starring role in the aesthetic of the product. The 30ml version, however, comes in a rounded frosted glass bottle which is just as beautiful.

After cleansing and toning the skin, apply 1-2 drops of the serum to your skin by gently massaging it in. Alternatively, you can mix a few drops into your moisturiser as you are applying it for a slightly less oily finish. Along with being used as a skincare product, you can also mix a drop or two in with your BB Cream or foundation to give you a radiant glow.

Ingredients

Camellia Sinensis Seed Oil, Tocopherol, (-)-alpha-bisabolol, **Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Oil.
 
Yep, that’s it. Four Ingredients. The ingredients are kept to a minimum and due to the ingredients and the lack of animal testing, this product is also Vegan. The chamomilla flower oil in the serum is what gives it that gorgeous natural blue shade.

The serum itself is very lightweight and doesn’t feel overly heavy on the skin when it is applied. Due to it being oil based though, it won’t immediately absorb into the skin so you may want to wait for a little after initial application before continuing on with any extra steps.
I find, personally, that I don’t really need to use a moisturiser after applying as the oils do the job for me. Meaning my skincare routine can be narrowed down some nights to just cleanse, tone and serum. Which is perfect for me working late nights and needing to sleep early in order to wake up with my daughter. This is particularly the case in the summertime when I don’t want to be putting a lot of different products on my skin.

The results

Due to this being a smaller size, I felt like giving the product a two-week trial would be enough to give myself a good first impression of how my skin reacts and changes with the use of this product.

For the first week, my skin was looking fantastic for the first few days and the acne scars I had were looking a lot lighter. However, my skin decided it was time for a hormonal breakout which brought even more acne to potentially scar my skin. I did initially worry that it was the product itself that was causing it but due to it being in the place I always get my hormonal acne, I ruled that out. Despite the breakout though, it’s clear to see that a few of the acne scars that were previously there have diminished in colour and weren’t as visible.

My skin broke out AGAIN this week, most likely due to stress and a lack of sleep. It could also be contributed to the amount of alcohol I had at the weekend as well, as that’s usually another trigger for my skin breaking out. So it wasn’t easy to see a full difference in my skin. There are a few of the smaller scars that aren’t as visible in comparison to the previous week which shows me the product is still working its magic.

Verdict

+ Visibly Lightened Acne Scars // Despite the acne breakouts, I could still tell that there was a visible change to my skin.
+ Smells absolutely gorgeous // The serum has such a delicate floral scent to it.
Multi-Use // Can be used in a small variety of ways depending on your skin needs.
Moisturised My Skin // While intending on just whitening the skin, the serum also helped keep my skin moisturised without the need for an extra moisturiser on top of it.
Little Bottle Goes A Long Way // Over these two weeks I used the serum once a day in the evening with the occasional day using it in the morning. I still have 2//3-3/4 left of the bottle. Given this, the 15ml would manage to last you about 4-8 weeks if not more depending on how often you actually feel like you need to use it.
This little bottle packs a lot in it and if you’re like me and suffer from acne breakouts whether they are hormonal or otherwise, I recommend adding this into your skincare routine to try and help you lighten the appearance of them and improve your skin’s overall texture. This won’t work for the likes of ice pick scars (which I also suffer from) but scarring that has discoloured the skin.
