Review of Jumiso All Day Vitamin Brightening & Balancing Facial Serum
We were gifted the All Day Vitamin Brightening & Balancing Facial Serum by Jumiso for our honest opinion and review. Alison of Seoul Glow tested the product over a period of around two months and provides her thoughts below.
The Jumiso All Day Vitamin Brightening & Balancing Facial Serum is a non-water-based and high-concentration serum for brightening. The product did not reduce my hyper-pigmentation but was quite hydrating and I didn't suffer any adverse affects. It was good for day and night use.
My skin type is normal to slightly dry (especially in the winter!). I’m lucky insofar as my skin isn’t sensitive, i.e. I can test out most products/ingredients. However, I have lots of freckles and suffer from hyper-pigmentation so look for brightening products and ingredients that will help fade the hyper-pigmentation.
This 30ml product comes in an orange bottle which feels sturdy but not particularly weighty as you sometimes find with higher end serums. The bottle comes in a cardboard box when new which is a standard carboard box. It doesn’t look or feel particularly luxurious but the price point is aimed at the mid-priced market.
There is a pipette glass dropper with a rubber squeeze bulb; you pinch the bulb rubber whilst its already in the bottle and then release it – product is imbibed in the pipette and released again of you squeeze the rubber bulb again (into your hand). This helps control the amount of product being dispensed into your hand which is quite handy (unintentional pun!).
Vitamin Tree extract: This product purports to contain “86.14% of the extract of Vitamin tree extract”. This is actually a combination of various vitamins rather than just one single vitamin. This includes vitamin A, B, C, D, E and K – all which have varying benefits making this serum a good all-rounder. Vitamin B3 helps improve uneven skin tone clogged pores and skin dullness. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that aids the skin’s natural regeneration process, which helps repair damaged skin cells.
Hyaluronic Acid: Known for its hydration boosting benefits. It acts like a sponge by attracting moisture, leaving your skin plumped and hydrated.
Centella Asiatica Extract: This ingredient is known to speed up wound healing, soothing skin and relieving inflammation.
Consistency and Scent:
I noticed immediately that this serum is slightly oilier than other serums. After some weeks of using it, I appreciated that it wasn’t too watery, yet not too oily either. It doesn’t absorb immediately but doesn’t leave a sticky residue like an oil would. Overall, I liked the consistency and I think it worked well under my moisturiser.
There was a slight scent (citrus?) but it was really subtle and I couldn’t really tell what it was to be honest! It didn’t bother me but as I mentioned above, my skin is quite resilient. Those with sensitive skin may have a different experience to me.
Products that claim to brighten your skin or reduce hyperpigmentation need more time to see results, so I’ve been using this product nearly every day for nearly two months, either in the morning or in the evening, depending what else is going on with my skincare routine. I was hopeful for this product but unfortunately I didn’t notice any difference in my skin or any reduction of my dark spots. It didn’t break me out and it did feel nice on my skin. It perhaps helped hydrate my skin but if I was looking for a hydrating product, I would probably choose something with a greater concentration of hyaluronic acid. I would recommend this product to those looking for a refreshing serum which is hydrating and which has brightening benefits.
Overall, I would give this product three and a half stars.
