MY THOUGHTS AND EXPERIENCE ON SERUMS AVAILABLE IN PAKISTAN:
Ok! So far you know what the products are, what are they made of and their purpose. Now I’m gonna share how each product treated my skin and whether they served the purposes for which I bought them.
Please keep In mind that these are my honest opinions and if a product works for me doesn’t HAVE TO work for you or if it doesn’t work for me means that it WON’T for you.
ROSE GOLD SERUM BY SPA IN A BOTTLE
I bought The Rose Beauty Elixir by Spa in a Bottle in July for the sole purpose of lip hydration. Since I do lip swatches I noticed my lips needed a lot more care than just a lip balm. (I had heard great reviews about their products too)
I used it before applying lipstick (and literally you need less than a drop only), my lipsticks specially the lip liners would glide on smoothly without any cracks. And the lipstick would come off easily too, coz let’s just face it these new Liquid Lipsticks are a hassle to remove and leaves the lips dry for days.

It also has benefits for acne prone skin but I used it for a few weeks and my skin was like – “Girl! Why do you even try? You know I’m sensitive”. :/ So I stopped!
I would definitely give this Serum a 4.2 Stars out of 5 coz it does what it promises.
24K GOLD SERUM BY BEAUTIFY BY AMNA
Ahhh the MOST HYPED 24K Gold Serum by BBamna. Literally when I bought this my inbox went crazy and everyone wanted to know if it’s really good? Or will it help in getting rid of acne or not?
Ok! Sorry to burst your bubble but 24K Gold Serum moisturizes the skin and makes your face glowy and hydrated before applying makeup. It’s a great moisturizer and will minimizes pores when applied under makeup.

Following are two shots of my base with and without the 24K Gold Serum by Beautify by Amna. These shots are taken without the professional lighting and with just BB cream and lil bit of concealer. I think it’s pretty clear the side with the serum has a relatively smooth finish as compared to the side that doesn’t.
This serum is my GO TO before applying any makeup on my face now and I definitely recommend it.
For this, I would give this product 4 Stars out of 5 (-1 coz it’s still a bit pricy for me at least)

NO ACNE SERUM BY WB BY HEMANI
No Acne Face Serum is my First Serums that I purchased, and I knew I had to get some thing for my acne from WB Stores coz I have used several products of theirs and I’m a HUGE fan!
Coming back to the Serum, I used this serum every night for over a year but like they promise that it helps in getting rid of blemishes and ACNE, it didn’t do a thing. I mean I agree that my acne has gone better since last year but that was because of Juicing I did for months. I know since I stopped using the serum for a while and my skin continued to heal a lot faster without it.
Yes! It might work out for you, but it didn’t at all, so I won’t recommend it. Giving this Serum 1 out 5 Stars.
(I know I’ve blown away ALL the chances of future collaborations with WB Hemani lol )
THE HOLY GRAIL ELIXIR BY SAFFRON NATURALS
The Holy Grail Elixir by Saffron is the latest hype amongst Pakistanis, mainly coz of the packaging. I must admit if you want me to buy ANYTHING make it’s packaging super extra and I’ll buy it. I mean just look at the beauty.
On a serious note: Saffron Natural’s Elixir is a blend of crushed sea pearls that prevents and treats discoloration, uneven skin tone and dark spots. However, because of the luxury ingredient the elixir is quite pricy and I’m so thankful to have received this in the PR.

After trying this for over 3 weeks around my lips area which gets dark overtime and under my eyes I can definitely say that the price is worth it. I have seen the dark areas starting to disappear (of course they won’t leave just like that). I think you can see in the Before and After of 3 Weeks of Proper Use below.
However, I do not recommend this applying before makeup as it has a purple tint to it (which is ohh my god makes me feel like a mermaid). Unless you want that purple shine underneath your foundation which is also fine.
I’m going to give this Holy Grail Elixir a 3.8 Stars Out of 5. (-1.2 because I can not afford it and I’m sure A LOT of my readers also can’t) But if you can invest in something for dark spots or hyper-pigmentation this elixir is your go to product.
So, these were my thoughts and experiences on the serums that I had purchased from Pakistan. I want to know, which serums have you tried before? Do let me know if you have any more questions.
Remember! You are Beautiful if you feel Beautiful. Lots of love Aimians, will see you in my next post.
