[Review] The Face Shop Marine Stem Cell – Cell revive capsule gel cream


what a long name, i really thought there wouldnt be enough space on the title bar for the full name of the below product.

This is my night cream every night before bed. except on the days i put masks.

interesting. marine stem cell. we all heard so much about it, but do you really know what it is? cos i dont. LOL.

According to wiki, Stem cells are biological cells found in all multicellular organisms, that can divide (through mitosis) and differentiate into diverse specialized cell types and can self-renew to produce more stem cells. In adult organisms, stem cells and progenitor cells act as a repair system for the body, replenishing adult tissues. In a developing embryo, stem cells can differentiate into all the specialized cells (these are called pluripotent cells), but also maintain the normal turnover of regenerative organs, such as blood, skin, or intestinal tissues.

Well, after reading that, i know its suppoese to regenerate some new skin for my skin or new cells. and MARINE would most likely refer to the marine organisms which TFS extract the stem cells from? although i strongly believe the stems cells found in this pft is artificially grown, which is possible according to wiki too. if not where got so affordable right?

doesnt matter. what matters is that it works right? what i expect from this ‘anti-aging’ pdt is to maintain the suppleness of my skin, ensure no fine lines appear, and that my skin wakes up looking ‘revived’.

what i really like about the face shop pdts is the GEL texture for most of their pdts. if you notice, this is the 4th review of TFS pdt and ALL OF THEM ARE GEL LIKE TEXTURE! (you can read about more of TFS on the right tag cloud).
i think thats y it is more popular than other korean brands in SG. cos in the humid hot weather, gel based is the most light and non greasy. it also spreads like a dream across the skin.

aquaish white based gel with white tiny beads. the smell is awesome, not too strong and very marine seaweedish.

this amt is enought for my entire face. i dab in on my cheeks, forehead, chin, nose and start spreading. all after my toner step.

this is after spreading.

this photo is the BETTER side of my face , keke. i really like how it doesnt feel too greasy and i feel like there’s no need to moisturize due to the watery gel feeling.

been using for 3 months and i think its good. no complains about this at all.
