Today is a very brief first impression of One O Seven CoreFlex HydroRich Cream, because life is just too hectic right now for a more thorough post. One O Seven is a brand that has been blowing up in the #kbeauty corner of world and I was lucky enough to snag one of their creams when 08L had it on offer. The brand has a really unique history that is seeped in the family owned fine vinegar making business.
This is a very moisturizing cream that isn’t heavy. A little goes a long way and spreads easily and sinks in fast. The temperature has been floating around freezing where I live and it’s been cold and dry. Before this cream, I was using two heavy occlusive layers (mostly because I have lots of heavy creams and need to use them up). Since I’ve received the 107 cream, I find that it has actually replaced the last two occlusive layers of my routine and I wake up with my the same amount of moisture on my skin. The only gripe I have with this cream is the fragrance. I find the fragrance to be way too strong, it lingers on my face, and it reminds me of grandma perfume. There is limited clinical trial data on the effectiveness of fermented ingredients in skincare. The few abstracts that I had time to skim leads me to think that some fermented ingredients provide better hydration for the skin.
