If there’s one thing that every skincare brand can agree on, is that aging is synonymous with loss of moisture in the skin. As we age, our skin barrier weakens, and allows moisture to escape more quickly, which then leads to dry, dehydrated skin, and the resulting fine lines and wrinkles.
Japanese brand Decorte has something to address this.
Decorte uses a new Multilamellar Bio-liposome, which is an ultra-fine 0.1-micron microcapsule that encapsulates moisturizing ingredients. These microcapsules (1 Trillion microcapsules in a single drop, apparently) penetrate easily and deeply into the skin to boost moisture from within.
The Liposome technology isn’t new, and Decorte has been using it since 1992 in their serum. This year, it’s a new formula.
Decorte Liposome Advanced Repair Serum
The Decorte Liposome Advanced Repair Serum is a pre-serum. You use it on clean skin, before you proceed with your other serums and creams.
What this does is target the source of skin damage for instant repair and protection against aging, and stimulates the rebirth of new cells and longer-lasting moisture while boosting the benefits of subsequent skincare products. It also contains Bifidobacterium fermented extract and HPA yeast culture to promote the growth of healthy epidermal cells and Type III collagen for youthful-looking skin.
I’d used a bottle of the Moisture Liposome serum in the past, and that was one of my early introductions to a pre-serum. This one is supposed to be even better at helping skin stay moisturised.
I have to admit I’m curious, so I’ll give this a go 🙂
Decorte Liposome Advanced Repair Eye Serum
The eye serum targets issues around the eye area like dullness, dryness and fine lines. In many ways, it’s your usual eye cream/serum. It contains ‘nano bicells’ which are a single layer of disc-shaped capsules that hold large amounts of human ceramides. Ceramides are a barrier ingredient that are naturally present in the skin.
I’m probably not the best judge of an eye product, as I’m notoriously bad at using one for any long period of time 😛 But what the Decorte Liposome Advanced Repair Eye Serum has that had me going “Oh, how clever!” is the little knob on the cover, which acts as a mini massaging tool.
After applying the serum around your eyes, you can use it to gently press on the acupressure points around your eye and orbital bone.
What I like about it is the lightweight texture that sinks nicely into the skin, and leaves the skin feeling plumped and refreshed. It is an oil-free formula and feels lovely.
What I do not like about it however (which is something they’re unfortunately rather proud of) is the green tea scent in the serum. While I’m not averse to fragrance in skincare, I am not a fan of it in products that go near my eye, nose or mouth area, as the smell often intensifies around these areas.
I will therefore highlight this point of the fragrance, as it is rather strong and that isn’t something I fancy around my eye area.
Have you used the Decorte Liposome serums before?
I’ll take the Liposome Advanced Repair Serum for a spin. There’s another Japanese brand pre-serum I’d like to compare it with 😉
