DR+NU:ELL skincare

Recently I got to know DR+NU:ELL from a good friend of mine after she has tried out the highly-raved DR+NU:ELL Enzyme Bubble Cleanser.

DR+NU:ELL skin care brand, which means "New and Well" is a Korean research institute discovered regenerated skin to be more elastic and radiant than existing skin tissues when studying wound repair process. The Science behind skin's self regeneration. The purpose of DR+NU:ELL range is to restore skin to its natural state of health instead of supplying nutrition to slow down aging slightly.

A Korean Skincare Formulated for Singaporean Skin types.
I am going to try out 4 products from DR+NU:ELL and share with you my experience after using them. They are the highly-raved DR+NU:ELL Enzyme O2 Bubble Cleanser, DR+NU:ELL Miracle Fitting Essence, DR+NU:ELL Double S Lotion and DR+NU:ELL Multi Sun Block.

DR+NU:ELL Enzyme O2 Bubble Cleanser is a dual function self-micro bubbling enzyme cleanser and make-up remover that effectively remove dead skin cells and even waterproof eyeliner.

DR+NU:ELL Enzyme O2 Bubble Cleanser 120 ml
This gentle cleanser contains papain enzymes from papaya fruit extracts that generate microbubbles to provide deep cleansing action in removing dead skin cells and sebum.

Cleansing  - Papaya Fruit Enzymes cleanse pores thoroughly, leaving skin supple and refreshed!
Moisturising - Birch Tree Bark Extract regenerates and hydrates for more radiant skin.
Soothing - Perfect for sensitive skin due to the soothing functions of Green Bean and Yellow Dock Extracts.

Directions of use: Pump a sufficient amount of dry palm and spread evenly on dry face, leave for 10-20 sec for micro-bubbles to form. Massage gently and rinse off. Use twice daily.

My review:  After knowing that this one is highly-raved, I am intrigued to try it out. This gel-texture cleanser re-foams and effectively removes and melts all traces of thick makeup even the most stubborn waterproof eyeliner and mascara. Normally I will use a facial wash after makeup remover, but with this washing off with water, it feels just like the effect of a double cleansing in 1 step. My skin feels super clean and smooth without over-drying/tightness. I also noticed, my subsequent skincare absorbed more quickly after using this.

Miracle Fitting Essence is the next star product from DR+NU:ELL. You can experience the miracle effect of six-callus [plant stem cell] complex for deep skin regeneration, whitening and repair!

Rejunvenating - Ginseng, Green Tea, Bamboo, Green Bean, Chrysanthemum and Carrot plant stem cell complex helps relieve skin stress and restores your skin to its youthful state.
Whitening - Niacinamide even skin tone with its whitening function
Firming - Adenosine firms skin and diminishes appearance of wrinkles
Moisturising - Aloe Leaf, Witch Hazel Leaf, Yam Root and Tiger Grass Extracts keeps skin deeply hydrated.

DR+NU:ELL Miracle Fitting Essence 50 ml
Direction of use: Apply a small amount of essence on clean dry face and massage gently. Night only


My review:  This concentrated yet weightless essence spread easily on my face and absorbs almost instantly. It gently calms and soothe my irritated stressed skin,  keeping it soft and supple. I am using this day and night with the Double S lotion ^_^

DR+NU:ELL Double S Lotion to achieve skin radiance and translucence with its triple action skin moisturiser.

Moisturising - Combination of Natto Beans, Panthenol and Trehalos seal skin's moisture effectively.
Whitening - Niacinamide even skin tone with its whitening function
Purifying - Gingko Leaf Extract firms and invigorates your skin
DR+NU:ELL Double S Lotion 150 ml

Directions of use: Apply lotion on the face and massage gently day & night.

My review: Just one pump of DR+NU:ELL Double S Lotion, dispenses enough for my entire face. This running fluid easily glides on and forms a weightless film over my face. After application, it leaves my skin looking fresher and more hydrated within minutes.

DR+NU:ELL Multi Sun Block is a light, fast absorbing multi-sunblock offers daily protection against UVA and UVB rays that causes premature signs of aging and damage. Formulated with a comprehensive sun protection system and advanced skincare ingredients, this mattifying sunblock also acts as a skin tone corrector and can be used as a makeup base for a smooth, anti-shine finish.

DR+NU:ELL Multi Sun Block SPF 43 PA+++
Sun Protection - SPF 42 PA+++ protects against damaging UVA and UVB rays.
Matte Finish - Sebum Absorption Powder preps the skin for makeup to last longer without the grease and shine.
Skin tone corrector - Can be used as a makeup base by brightening the skin to create a natural hue. Mineral powders and plant extracts helps to spread the sunblock smoothly for a pore-free, natural finish.

Directions of use:  Apply sunblock in equal portions to the entire face, before applying Dr NU:ELL BB cream. Spread evenly over face and neck for sun protection. Suitable for all skin types.

My review: Like me, if you wear BB/CC/ foundation everyday, this can double as a makeup base with its pale pinkish shade which is perfect for my skin tone. Its creamy yet light texture blends seamlessly on my skin and give my face a fairer, radiant sheer coverage even on its own! I am using this daily after the Double S lotion.
DR+NU:ELL must-have complete skincare: DR+NU:ELL Enzyme O2 Bubble Cleanser, DR+NU:ELL Miracle Fitting Essence, DR+NU:ELL Double S Lotion and DR+NU:ELL Multi Sun Block.

After I dispense Sulwhasoo Capsulized Ginseng Fortifying Serum on my skin, I saw multiple tiny Ginsenispheres capsules, are you able to see them?
My review:
Using Sulwhasoo Capsulized Ginseng Fortifying Serum, I feel my skin instantly boost with intense hydration, skin visibly plumper and radiant. This voluminous serum which comes with ginseng scent that is not overpowering, feels like a skin tonic,  glides and melts into skin quickly with no sticky residue. I use it daily day and night, I love how it keeps my skin looking fresh dewy throughout the day.
