Pomegranate Antioxidant Essence By Pure Beauty

This is something I have been using since last September, and I thought it's about time I tell you how much I love it (and most pomegranate skincare products, in general.)
Pomegranates are natural antioxidants. If you don't like to drink green tea, like me (yuck!), it's nice to have an alternative. Pomegranate seed oil has amazing anti-aging properties, and is known as an 'elixir of youth'.

What this Essence promises ~ Formulated with a natural herbal complex made from mulberry root, rice, green tea and pomegranate oil extracts, it allows every skin cell to experience the renewing power of nature, stimulates skin restoration and cell turnover effects. Day after day, it detoxifies and prevents signs of aging, so your skin radiates youthful vitality.

What is Essence? Basically, a serum. Asians prefer to call Serums - Essence.

Usage ~ Massage onto entire face and neck after cleansing. Use day & night.

I love mulberries, I love rice, I want to love green tea, and I LOVE pomegranates, so this Essence was kinda like an answer to my prayers wishes. It has a thin water-like consistency, but it feels a little mucous-like as well (not the gross kind! :)) It smells really good, well, like pomegranates.

My skin type ~ Combination/Oily, more Oily in summers. This immediately hydrates it after cleansing without making it feel greasy.

The benefits ~ Truthfully, it's not a miracle potion, but it has erased some fine lines and I have noticed that my skin heals faster with this. Like, when I get pimples, they clear up faster after they've dried up, and they don't leave very obvious scars (except for one on my chin, which is also almost gone now.) It is gentle, soothing, and very moisturizing that most times I don't need another moisturizer over it. It makes a nice foundation base too.

The Bad ~ It doesn't lighten dark spots or brighten complexion.


Price ~ I forgot how much this costs exactly, but products from this range are really inexpensive ranging form RM 19.90- 43.90 (Rs.250-650). I think this essence was priced somewhere in between. I love the attractive red packaging. The creams in this range look like DKNY Be Delicious perfume.
Rating ~ ♥♥♥♥4/5
Repurchase? Yes, this is almost over. I regret not getting the eye cream last time, so I'm getting that too.

*Pure Beauty products are sold only in Asian countries (except India, of course. Sigh!) at Watsons
If you want to know more the brand, you can check out Pure Beauty website HERE

If you live in India, and interested in trying out pomegranate skincare products, you can check out The Body Shop Natrulift range...

It is an anti-ageing range. When I was testing them at the store, the SA cautiously told me, "It's for 40+" 
I answered "So? I like using for 40+ products" and she was amused. I am thinking about getting the serum. 

Do you want to use pomegranate skincare products?

  6. That looked amazing ... I haven't noticed TBS Natrulift range :( Lemme check it out this time

  7. Haha "I like using 40+ products"... exactly how i feel sometimes...If yr already forty and start using anti ageing, it aint gonna do much..

  8. sounds nice...
    last line was I like using 40+ products..lolzz..

  9. Hmm...the range sounds good..Watsons has quite good brands na..My sis got a scrub(their in house brand) and it is a wonder product for tanned skin..
    C...btw, I bought the pomegranate cleanser from TBS..quite good...except it stings near the eye area :-(

  10. Is MAC Satinfinish foundation any good? The colorsuits me but it brings out my acne and looks "put-on"

  11. Tempting.. but such cute prods are not available in India :(

  12. I saw these brand at my local Watsons store too and the price is pretty good.. ^___^ Saw some interesting stuff by them too (A water-based make-up remover that claims to work as good as oil-based ones..^0^).. I might try this out in the future since we have the same skin type..^^

  13. I'm a bit on a pomegranate 'craze' too....well just a handcream (just bought 2nd tube!). Hey, what's wrong with the taste of green tea?! ;)

  14. Thank you for the review. Pomegranate is one of the best antioxidants available. Good to eat and good to apply to the skin.


I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
