First Impression - It's Skin Power 10 Formula Propolis

Hello Princesses!

Today I'm going to be talking about a very interesting product from the It's Skin Power 10 Formula range, the Propolis formula! Apparently, Propolis is a resinous mixture that honey bees collect from tree buds, sap flows, or other botanical sources. It is used as a sealant for unwanted open spaces in the hive, and apparently in beauty products! Bee produce isn't so uncommon for beauty products, and definitely not the weirdest thing I've ever put on my face (hello snail slime) so let's see how it does!
What Does It Do?
"It's Skin Power 10 Formula Propolis (30ml)
The Propolis extract contained in this essence helps to restore, strengthen and bright up your skin for dewy, healthy and well hydrated results. It's Niacin Amide property promotes brightening effect to improve dull and tired look skin tone.

How to use?
Use it after cleansing and toning. Apply moisturizer afterwards to complete your skin care regimen.

For all skin types, especially for tired look skin." (1)

"Highly potent and concentrated serum improves skin's over-all health with a steady stream of nutrient-rich propolis and generous moisturizers to brighten dull skin and tighten enlarged pores. Rapidly penetrating formula sinks through skin's layers to reverse the effects of stress and damage right where they begin to form. For best results, smooth on a few drops of serum on cleansed and toned skin and follow with moisturizer to seal in hydration." (2)
I used two sample sachets of this product and can safely say that I love it! It absorbs quickly, provides light hydration with a matte finish and seems to make my acne heal faster. Obviously I'm not a dermatologist and can't confirm this, but Webmd tells me that "Propolis seems to have activity against bacteria, viruses, and fungi. It might also have anti-inflammatory effects and help skin heal." (3) A quick Google search from a couple of different resources tells me that Propolis is not fully researched yet, but seems to have some potential to help acne because of the anti-septic properties it has.

Would I Purchase This Product?
Yes, I already have! ^.^ I've been having some quite severe acne in Taipei and this product really seems to help it! I found an It's Skin counter in Kaohsiung and snapped it up for a moderately pricy $490TWD (around $20NZD) and I have NO REGRETS. I'm really excited to try the other tester samples of the Power 10 Formula range too! ^.^
