Urang Vitamin Oil Serum vs Urang Glow Oil Serum | which one is better?

Serum/Essence

Vitamin Oil vs Glow Oil Serum

If you look at these at a quick glance, they might look like the exact same product. In reality they are very different from each other, even the colors! Let’s check out the differences between them~

Vitamin Oil Serum

These day I’ve been really enjoying incorporating oil serums into my skincare routine. It has made such a huge difference. My skin feels hydrated, smooth, and glowy. This serum is no exception. This serum is filled with 97.68% organic ingredients and 99.9% natural ingredients. When digging more into the ingredients, I realized a lot of the benefits were good for improving skin texture, minimizing the appearance of fine lines, brightening, nourishing, and repairing the skin.

Some main ingredients are: Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil (for skin conditioning), Rosa Moschata Seed Oil (provide powerful anti-oxidant protection), and Tocopherol (form of vitamin E).

Full list of ingredients:

Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil*, Rosa Moschata Seed Oil*, Tocopherol, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil*, Rose Flower Oil, Commiphora Myrrha Oil, Boswellia Carteri Oil, Aniba Rosaeodora (Rosewood) Wood Oil (*Organic Ingredient)

Every morning, I like to go in with the vitamin oil serum. It’s much more of a lighter texture compare to the glow oil serum, so it feels comfortable throughout the day. Also it gives me enough glow that looks good when I have makeup or no makeup. I haven’t seen much differences yet with my fine lines and brightening effect, but I do enjoy how my skin feels.

More details on the oil serum:

  1. Texture ~ It is a light-weight oil texture that penetrates quickly into the skin. It feels very comfortable on the skin and doesn’t leave much of a oily residue.
  2. Smell~ This has a very calming aromatic smell to it. Personally, I can smell the lavender and rosehip a lot more compare to the other ingredients. It always makes me feel so calm when I apply it every morning.
  3. Color ~ It’s a gorgeous light pasty yellow shade. Very similar to the glow oil serum except more pale and brighter.

Glow Oil Serum

In comparison to the vitamin oil serum, I like to use the glow oil serum every night. Since the oil texture is bit more dense, I don’t want it to overlap with my morning skincare routine. This serum contains 98.5% organic ingredients and 99.9% natural ingredients. Most ingredients focus on skin rejuvenation, restoration, and deep moisture.

Some main ingredients are: Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil (for skin hydration and anti-oxidant protection), Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil (for skin conditioning), and Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil (helps skin look smooth and free from fine lines).

Full ist of ingredients are:

Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil*, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil*, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil*, Calendula Officinalis Flower Oil*, Citrus Nobilis (Mandarin Orange) Oil*, Tocopherol, Citrus Aurantium Amara (Bitter Orange) Flower Oil*, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Oil, (*Organic ingredient)

As I mentioned before, during my night skincare routine, I like to incorporate the glow oil serum. This serum is a more dense texture which is very moisturizing. If I thought the vitamin oil serum “glow” was astounding, then I was wrong. The Glow Oil Serum is at a whole other level. After applying this oil serum, my face looks like glass skin. It provides that nice dewy translucent sheen.

A few more things I noticed about the serum~

  1. Smell ~ It has a very unique smell that reminds me of some flower. I’m not a huge fan of the scent, but it something I can get used to. Also after applying it, I barely notice the scent.
  2. Color~ The color is darker than the vitamin oil serum. It’s more of an orange-yellow shade. The colors definitely reminds me of a sunflower.
  3. Texture ~ It’s a dense oil texture that applies nicely. It doesn’t entirely soak into the skin but it still feels comfortable on the skin.

Similarities and Differences Between the Oil Serums.

Even though the oil serums had similar ingredients such as the jojoba oil and tocopherol, they reacted very differently on my skin. The vitamin oil serum felt very light-weight and hydrating whereas the glow oil serum was dense and moisturizing. If you have very dry, damaged, or mature skin, the glow oil serum would be suitable since it contains many ingredients that aid with deep moisture and fine lines. On the other hand, if you want to target skin texture, brightening, and fine lines, then I would go for the vitamin oil serum.

Who is the winner?

I love them both BUT I would pick the Vitamin Oil Serum as the winner. Why? I enjoy the light-weight texture, relaxing aroma, and how nicely it absorbs into the skin. Also it doesn’t interfere with my other skincare steps. These days I really want to use more skincare ingredients that help with brightening and reducing fine lines, so this serum has definitely helped me to take that step.

Rose skincare? Urang True Rose Repair Essence & Urang Pink Everlasting Ampoule

Serum/Essence

Another Urang skincare review?!!  I know! I’m so sorry I haven’t been able to review other products. I have been quite lazy to review anything. Since I am on a deadline, I have been just reviewing Urang skincare lately, but I PROMISE I will be uploading other contents soon.

First let’s start of the with the one I was most excited to use, Urang Pink Everlasting Ampoule. I heard really good things about this ampoule since it helps with anti-aging, rejuvenation, and restoring the skin. One of my friends, Eunice (aka Euniunni) always raves about this ampoule and so I thought I have to try it for myself. 

Pink Everlasting Ampoule

This ampoule promises skin healing properties, maintaining skin moisture barrier, anti-inflammation, and firming. It contains some fun ingredients such as Helichrysum Italicum Flower Water (for repairing, regenerating, & soothing), Silk Amino Acids (for moisture preservation), and Hydrolyzed collegen (for anti-aging, firming, and rejuvenation). 

Full list of ingredients:

Helichrysum Italicum Flower Water(81.7%)*, Silk Amino Acids, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Centella Asiatica Extract*, Betaine, Glycerin*, Cyanocobalamin, Zanthoxylum Piperitum Fruit Extract, Pulsatilla Koreana Extract, Usnea Barbata (Lichen) Extract, Sclerotium Gum, Citrus Paradisi (Grapefruit) Peel Oil*, Sodium Hyaluronate, Hydrolyzed Corn Starch, Sucrose, Helichrysum Italicum Flower Oil*, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil* (* Organic ingredient)

I will be honest I haven’t had much of an opportunity to use this ampoule to its full extent since I have been so busy with the holidays. I prefer using this ampoule during my night skincare routine since it has a lot of anti-aging properties. I haven’t seen extreme differences yet but I will definitely give you an update in the future.

Let’s dissect this ampoule more: (that sounds gruesome lol)

  1. SMELL ~ Compare to the blue brightening oil serum, I am not a huge fan of the smell. It doesn’t have a bad scent but it reminds me of a slight bitter floral scent. Does that make sense? It’s hard to explain but it’s not my cup of tea (or flower lol). I know a lot of people love the scent and have no problem, so maybe it’s just me. It definitely took me some time to get used to it but luckily the scent doesn’t linger. 
  2. COLOR ~ It’s a beautiful light pink color. The pink comes from the vitamin B12. There is no artificial fragrance or coloring. 
  3. TEXTURE ~ The texture is a silicone-like texture that lathers into the skin very well. BTW, there is NO silicone in it. It’s possible the texture is from the Silk Amino Acids but I haven’t confirmed that yet. I will let you know as soon I as I know~

Urang True Repair Essence

Next up, it is the Urang True Repair Essence. Do you use essences or do you skip it entirely? Usually after cleansing and toning, I like to use an essence. During my night skincare routine, I go for the Repair Essence. 

This essence promises supple skin, help dull skin, provide glowing complexion, hydration, and anti-acne properties. Some key ingredients are Rosa Damascena Flower Water (for antioxidant properties & moisturizing), Water, Glycerin (attracts moisture & acts as an emollient), and Sclerotium Gum (natural thickening agent & softening properties). 

Full list of the ingredients:

Rosa Damascena Flower Water* (50.7%), Water, Glycerin* (7%), Sclerotium Gum, Betaine, Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract, Paeonia Suffruticosa Root Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, Polygonum Cuspidatum Root Extract, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Zanthoxylum Piperitum Fruit Extract, Pulsatilla Koreana Extract, Usnea Barbata (Lichen) Extract, Rosa Damascena Flower Oil (0.1%), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract* (0.05%) (*Organic Ingredient)

DISSECTING time~~ haha. I should stop! Lol :

  1. SMELL ~ This definitely has a prominent rose scent. I know some of my friends are obsessed with rose fragrances, but personally I don’t care too much. I’m slowly coming to like the fragrance but it’s not my favorite scent.
  2. TEXTURE~ Guuuuurrrll! This texture is so unique since it has a more gel-like consistency. You may be surprised if you get your bottle in the mail and it looks solid. I had the same issue and freaked out, so I contacted Urang about it. Apparently, the ampoule will solidify in cold weather but after it is placed in room temperature, it will go back to a normal gel-like consistency.    

OVERALL RATING!!

Overall, I am enjoying both the pink ampoule and rose repair essence. I haven’t seen drastic differences in my skin yet but I haven’t had any negative effects either.  Thank goodness. I definitely will continue to use it and hopefully see some positive results in the long run. I need all the anti-aging and hydration possible!

Price: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Skincare I’m Switching up for Winter | New Winter Skincare (ft Urang Blue Brightening Oil Serum and Ceramide Cream)

Serum/Essence

Skincare I’m Switching for Winter

First NEW skincare item!

As the weather starts to cool down and the air becomes dry, it is essential to bring out the winter skincare. During the cold seasons, I have dry skin which needs a lot of love and care. The first skincare item I’ve included into my routine has been the Urang Brightening Blue Oil Serum.

This serum promises brightening and toning effect, fading blemishes and dark spots, and moisturizing the skin. Also it contains key ingredients such as Camellia Sinensis Seed Oil (for moisturizing) , Tocopherol (powerful antioxidant for reducing UV damages), and Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Oil (soothe inflammatory skin conditions and calm sensitive skin).

Full list of ingredients:

Camellia Sinensis Seed Oil, Tocopherol, (-)-alpha-bisabolol, *Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Oil (*Organic ingredient)

So far this serum has been wonderful! I can definitely see a difference after using it. My skin always looks glowy and moisturized.

A few things you SHOULD take notice:

  1. SMELL ~ Since the serum contains natural or organic ingredients, it has natural scent to seed and flower oil. So don’t be alarm!
  2. COLOR ~ Why is it blue? It contains German Chamomile Essential Oil which gives it that color.
  3. TEXTURE ~ The oil is not very fluid. So I recommend patting the oil serum into the skin. DO NOT RUB! *pat pat*
  4. TIME ~ After applying the oil serum, let it soak into the skin before continuing your skincare routine. It doesn’t take too long for your skin to soak in the oil serum. My skin personally really LOVES it.

Second NEW skincare item!

The second skincare I’ve included in my current routine has been the Urang Rose Ceramide Cream. During the cold season, I definitely prefer using a more moisturizing and thicker cream that keeps my skin supple and moisturized throughout the day. My biggest concern is my skin drying up throughout the day or my base makeup caking up. So I’ve switched up my previous cream to a thicker one.

The Urang Rose Ceramide Cream promises deep hydration especially for mature skin, calming redness, and protecting the skin barrier. Some main key ingredients are Rosa Damascena Flower Water (for reducing redness, antioxidant, and protecting the skin), Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (reduce skin dryness), and Glyceryl Stearate SE (works as a emulsifier).

Full list of ingredients:

Rosa Damascena Flower Water (33%)*, Water, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Glycerin, Betaine, Macadamia Integrifolia Seed Oil, Cetearyl Alcohol, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Saccharomyces Ferment Filtrate, Cryptomeria Japonica Leaf Extract, Nelumbo Nucifera Leaf Extract, Imperata Cylindrica Root Extract, Bacillus/Soybean Ferment Extract, Cetyl Alcohol, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil*, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil*, Ceramide NP (1500ppm), Rosa Canina Fruit Oil, Zanthoxylum Piperitum Fruit Extract, Pulsatilla Koreana Extract, Usnea Barbata (Lichen) Extract, Rosa Damascena Flower Oil (20mg) (*Organic ingredient)

So far after using the cream, my skin feels moisturized and soft. I haven’t seen much difference with reducing redness (although I don’t really have much) and skin barrier, but I will continue to use it and update you later.

** Take Notice ***

  1. SMELL ~ Just like the oil serum, the cream has a particular smell but this one is more familiar to the general consumer, which is rose scent.
  2. TEXTURE ~ It is a very smooth but rich texture, so a little goes a long way. Don’t be like me and lather a big blob on my face. 😀

OVERALL RATING!

Overall, I am quite impressed by both the blue oil serum and ceramide cream. They have been a great new staple for my winter skincare routine. For a very long time, I was skeptical about oil serums, but the Urang Brightening Blue Oil Serum has changed my mind. I will continue to use these and update you in a future blog post or Youtube video. Please look forward to it!
