Sanny & Joleen Lifestyle Antioxidant Serum | Review

Age is catching up with me. That is why I am constantly reviewing beauty products that may at least allow me to age more gracefully. Besides having healthy lifestyles including consuming an adequate amount of water each day, a good beauty regime is absolutely essential . This time I have tried a facial serum by Sanny &Joleen Lifestyle. I have previously written about the importance of facial serum in this article

Sanny Joleen is proudly made in Malaysia. It was established in 2014 in the aim to fulfil needs using the most basic and simple way. It has now expanded its market to Thailand, Indonesia and Singapore as well. 

As with most of the other natural skincare products, Sanny & Joleen antioxidant serum does not contain the following - sodium laurel sulfate, sodium Lauretta sulfate, animal derivatives, mineral oil, alcohol, harsh detergent, artificial colors, synthetic fragrance, EDTA and propylene glycol. These are ingredients commonly used in skincare products that may dehydrate the skin, clog pores or even cause eczema to flare up. 

The key breakthrough ingredient used in this antioxidant serum is none other than tocotrienol. 

Tocotrienol and tocopherols are members of the Vitamin E family. However, Tocotrienol are purportedly 40-60 times more potent as an antioxidant. This in turn helps to lessen the effect of photo-aging which is Ageing of the skin caused by sun exposure. Tocotrienol is a powerful antioxidant that protects against ultraviolet light, radiation and ozone. It helps to prevent skin aging &; improves skin elasticity by stimulating collagen synthesis by reducing this enzyme -- MMPs activity, potentially effective in skin regeneration & smoothingeffect. Tocotrienol also promotes skin whitening by reducing tyrosinase activity and decrease melanin content. It is also effective in reducing acne, inflammation and skin redness.

Besides that, it also contains other skin food such as pantheons (pro vitamin B5), niacinamide (vitamin B3), calendula and olive oil, as well as benzoyl acid. These help to keep the skin moisturized and to prevent breakout. 

Not only can it be used on the face, it can also be used on the body to lighten pigmentation, fade acne scars, reduce the effect of sunburn and to fade stretch marks. Use it sparingly after cleaning the area twice a day. The consistency is almost gel like.

What does Dr Yingzangel think?

I love how simple the packaging is. Very down to earth. The serum itself is also a very honest product. Slightly cloudy in colour and not sticky. It gets absorbed very quickly into the skin. It's lightweight and does not burden the skin at all. It also doesn't carry any scent. 

For the price tag, it is indeed an effective product. My skin colour has become more radiant with a week of continuous usage. What's more is as Malaysians, we should definitely support local skincare brands that produce such quality products. I would love to try their other products including the cleansing cream and sunscreen.
