For Beloved One: Advanced Hyaluronic Acid GHK-Cu Moisturizing Series [Sponsored Post]

Launched exclusively at Sephora in March, For Beloved One introduced their Advanced Hyaluronic Acid GHK-Cu Moisturizing Series! This series uses advanced Self-Hydrating Mechanism with “Active Hydro-Kinetic Technology” to pump moisture into each skin layer from the bottom up for moisturized dewy skin all day long!

For Beloved One Advanced Hyaluronic Acid GHK-Cu Moisturizing Series

“Active Hydro-Kinetic Technology” utilizes 4 major types of Hyaluronic Acid with different molecular masses to penetrate and moisturize each skin layer from deep within to the surface.:
  • Large molecular Hyaluronic Acid (Sodium Hyaluronate);
  • Middle molecular Hyaluronic Acid (PrimalHyal 300); and
  • 2 types of small molecular Hyaluronic Acid (PrimalHyal 50, Hyalo-Oligo)

Rich with Hyaluronic Acid activating factor EXO-H that stimulates the body’s own secretion of hyaluronic acid to boost hydration, it is recommended to drink a glass of water after completing the skincare procedure for increased synergistic effect of the advanced self-hydrating mechanism!

Additionally, this series is also the first moisturizing skincare that is infused with Copper Peptide (GHK-Cu) and Copper Gluconate to boost skin health, reduce the appearance of fine wrinkles, smooth cuticles, and strengthen the skin’s moisture retention ability.

GHK-Cu is hailed as a “revolutionary skincare peptide” as its small molecular mass allows it to penetrate deeply into the skin layers, effectively repairing skin damage and accelerating skin renewal. While, Copper Gluconate, an organocopper, is an indispensable mineral when it comes to skin moisturizing chelation process because it cannot be naturally produced by the body.

Now, in line with my decision to cut down on product wastage and to only review things that I will use, I wrote in to request to allow me to choose the products that I want to review rather than the full collection. I also made a note that I'm open to trial size as long as I can test the products out for a month, and they very kindly passed me the full sized products for this review.

I choose these 3 products because of the ingredients in them and I personally believe that you can form a skincare routine with them. After a month of using them, day and night, here's my review:

Advanced Hyaluronic Acid GHK-Cu Moisturizing Toner

A gentle toner rich in GHK-Cu, hyaluronic acid and copper gluconate, helps to restore and hydrate the skin. The toner's blue colour comes from the copper ions in the malachite.

Smell: Clean refreshing scent

Texture: Water base

Overall Rating: 10/10

I found it soothing after cleansing and sufficiently hydrating that I could forgo any moisturizer on
days that I just stayed at home. This toner gets absorbed by my skin rather easily without any stinging sensation. And after 1 month of testing, day and night, I've only used up 2 cm worth of product with enough left to last probably 8 more months so it is pretty worth it for its buck.

Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Surge Cream

The cream contains an ingredient called Aquaphyline (hydrolysed viola tricolor extract) which claims to introduce water and glycerin to the upper layers of skin and increase the production of hyaluronic acid. It also contains malachite essence, which is rich in copper, that aids to retain moisture over a prolonged period of time to relieve dryness, This product has a unique cream texture that turns into micro water molecules once in contact with skin to keep the skin hydrated and refresh for the day.

Purified Water、Sodium Hyaluronate、【Exo-H】(Water /Butylene Glycol /Alteromonas Exopolysaccharide Extract)、【Hyalo-Oligo®】(Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid)、【AQUAPHYLINE®】(Water /Hydrolyzed viola tricolor extract / Phenoxyethanol/ Ethylhexylglycerin)、Malachite、Chlorphenesin、Propanediol、Sodium Chloride、Sodium Citrate、Dimethicone、Dimethicone/PEG-10/15 Crosspolymer、Fragrance

Price: $95 for 30 ml jar

Smell: Light floral scent

Texture: Water base

Overall Rating: 8/10

The texture of this cream is very lightweight, feels cool upon application, and goes on feeling wet so it glides on easily and absorbs very quickly. That being said, during the month's worth of test, I noticed that while using this cream, I had small bumps of blemishes appearing on my skin (featured on left image) and it's usually a sign that my skin doesn't like something in the product. So those with sensitive skin should do a patch test before purchase!

In terms of hydration, which is the purpose of this whole series, the cream helped to soften and hydrate the skin, which plumped and smooth out the skin's texture. Knowing that it will be challenging to reflect the hydration effectiveness with the skin on my face, I used it on my elbow too and the results are very obvious! The bottom image (on the right) shows how rough, "black" and dry my elbow was and the top image shows the improvement the cream had after a month of application! It resulted in a change in the colour of the skin, it looks plumped and hydrated, and the skin is significantly smoother.

After a month of using this cream for day and night, I'm left with half a jar so I guess I'm left with another month to empty it out.

Hyaluronic Acid GHK-Cu Moisturizing Bio-Cellulose Mask

Unlike other sheet masks, For Beloved One uses bio-cellulose made of nano-scale organic fibres produced by compound microorganism bacteria fermentation because the nano-fibres are smaller than the skin groove and can be closely attached to the skin. It is waterproof, but air permeable so that your skin can "breathe" while the serum is locked between for better absorption. With ingredients like GHK-Cu and Malachite, this mask is formulated to give skin instant repair and to rejuvenate the skin, while Hyaluronic Acid replenishes and locks in essential moisture to leave skin dewy, soft and supple.

Purified Water, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer, Sodium Hyaluronate, [Hyalo-Oligo®] (Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid), [TornareTM] (Glycosyl Trehalose), Dipotassium glycyrrhizate, Allantoin, Tetrasodium EDTA, [AMINOCOATTM] (Betaine)、[Oligo GGFTM] (Raffinose), Chlorphenesin, [Anasensyl®LS9322] (Ammonium Glycyrrhizate/Mannitol/Caffeine/Zinc Gluconate/Aesculus Hippocastanum (Horse Chestnut) Extract), Polysorbate 60, Isospropyl Methylphenol, Alpha-Tocopherol, Fragrance, [Malachite](Malachite Extract), [Exo-HTM](Water/Butylene Glycol/Alteromonas Ferment Extract), Panthenol, PPG-12-Buteth-16, Tremellia Fuciformis Sporocarp Extract, [GHK-Cu](Copper Tripeptide-1)

To Use:

  1. Take the elastic and transparent bio-cellulose mask in the middle.
  2. Apply the wet side (the one adhesive to semi-transparent paper foil) on the face.
  3. Take off the mask after 15-20 minutes. No need to rinse and continue regular skin care procedure.

Price: $63 for a box of 3 masks

Smell: I can't pinpoint the scent, but it gives a creamy-lotion scent

Texture: Water base

Overall Rating: 10/10

I was never a fan of sheet mask because they tend to sting my skin and feel sticky after use. But I was pleasantly surprised to find my skin thoroughly hydrated, comfortable, and my skin was left feeling soft and smooth once the serum of the mask is absorbed! It feels cool on the skin and very hydrating, after the mask my skin looks and feels well moisturized. The best part of this mask is that the serum doesn't leave a sticky sensation once it is fully absorbed, it feels very similar to a water-based gel serum.

In terms of fitting, the mask was a little short for my face and my nose bridge is too flat for the nose/eye area but the mask adheres way better than most sheet mask, onto my skin with a vacuum-like effect! I will purchase this only for special occasions when my skin needs to a dose of intense hydration, considering the price tag of this mask.
