Embarking the 10th Anniversary of Skinfood’s Cult skincare Black sugar wash off mask(Honey Version in link), they released a Gold edition of both the First Perfect Black Serum along with the Black Sugar Mask.

Although, Skinfood website is showing the New version of Perfect First Serum-essential concocted with Korean wine.Keep reading!!
Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect First Serum Gold Review
AS CLAIMED BY BRAND
How to use
“– Wipe and pat skin.”
“- using the cleansing side of the pad, gently “wipe” skin to remove dead skin cells and impurities.
– using the absorbent side o the pad, gently “pat” the skin to absorb the serum remaining on the pad. “
“Shake well before use to mix the particles with the serum.”
“Use immediately after cleansing. Pour onto a cotton pad.”
I bought the complete limited edition set which included specially designed cotton pads (60 ), a 120 ml glass bottle of the serum and a small plastic 30ml bottle, packaged within the thick cardboard box in carved out hollows within the pack. I was unable to take the pictures of the complete set as I got three of these sets.So for more space in my luggage, I took out the bottles from the box as I was traveling back.
Skinfood Black Sugar First Perfect Gold Serum is packaged in thick ,brown tinted glass bottle with lot of Gold detailing. Packaging looks vintage and classy. The bottle is going to be my keepsake for its looks. Although It is opaque and as user I feel bit uncomfortable, clueless to amount of product left in bottle.Bottle opening is guarded by a plastic stopper with hole in centre that regulates the flow of essence efficiently.
First Perfect serum is watery essence in texture and has mild scent of black sugar(something like molasses ).It does not have that typical silicon rich smooth feel on touching which is common with many top brand serums . It gets absorbed quickly without any sticky feeling.As I pour the liquid after shaking the bottle, I can spot tiny gold flecks on the cotton pad too. ( More vigorous shake will fetch more gold)
How I use it?
As directed,I pour the serum on the rough side of the cotton pad,wipe off my face avoiding the under eye area and then pat on the smoother side on skin for enhanced absorption of the serum.Although, It seems that some product is wasted using cotton pads, but for faster and better results it is good to use cotton pads. I am currently using it as a part of my night time skincare routine. I apply it on my cleansed face and follow it up with my Night cream.
I was expecting that it may cause tingling or some uncomfortable feeling when I applied it first. But the formula is very gentle and somewhat moisturizing on my Dry Sensitive skin. I neither had any sensitivity nor any redness.Gold Particles get dissolved after coming in contact with skin. Now my night cream gets absorbed within seconds as the serum prepares my skin for active absorption.Over last few months, I can see that my complexion looks brighter and uniform. My skin feels softer and smoother. It works primarily by exfoliating gently revealing new,young skin.
PRICE:56.90 SGD for 120 ml ( Completely forgot the full box price)
VANILLA RATINGS 10/10
Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect First Serum Gold is gentle essence which exfoliates along with moisturizing my skin. I loved the concept of dual surface cotton pads provided along with for double action. It unclogs the pores and adds natural glow to my complexion.I highly recommend this for girls in need blemish care and fixing uneven skin tones. It will suit all skin types. It has alcohol,salicylic acid and glycol acid which are the active ingredients.I cannot comment on anti-wrinkle claim as such. But i bough the same set for my mom. As per her, there is no visible wrinkle reduction but her skin looks lot plump and revitalised. As the Gold Edition was Limited, I recommend you going for Original Version or the New Essential Version.
