What attracted me to Bueno Meditech are its ingredients. It is a relatively new, luxurious Korean brand that really pushes forward skin care products in all its glory with research on cellular level and bioactive substances. Just look at the power ingredients that forms the foundation of this brand.
Epidermal Growth Factors (EGF) and Multi-Growth Factor (MGF): Growth factors are at the cutting edge of anti-aging science. it’s truly unique because they communicate with your cells to create more collagen and elastin, which keep skin smooth and firm for a healthy, youthful complexion. It maximizes and synergistically work with the anti-aging benefits of other ingredients such as peptide.
Peptide: molecular links of amino acids that help your skin to produce collagen, the foundation for firm and elastic skin. Properly formulated collagen can send a “message” to your skin that it has lost collagen and needs to generate more, thereby improving skin texture, tone, thickness and fine lines and wrinkles.
Galactomyces: There are numerous scientific studies that show that galactomyces ferment filtrate is effective in moisturizing, brightening, controlling sebum production, decreasing acne, and increasing elasticity; hence its popularity in many Asian skin care brands, including SKII, Dr. Jart, COSRX and Benton.
Volufilin: This is new to me but it sounds absolutely fabulous. We lose fat as we age, resulting sagging, dark circle and deep wrinkles. Volufilin is extracted from the roots of Asian botanical Anemarrhena asphodeloides, in an oil-soluble excipient. It promotes body volume by a cosmetic lipofilling-like effect. It stimulates adipocyte differentiation and proliferation, and promotes lipid storage leading to an increase of adipocyte volume in the fatty tissue.
Additionally, the brand emphasizes on natural philosophy by using nature’s finest ingredients, and is free of paraben, benzophenone, talc, phenoxyethanol, mineral oil, propylene glycol, color, sulfate and BHT. The high tech and natural formulations really help to focus these products on being an anti-aging multitasker. Growth factors and peptides alone can address multiple aging concerns at once, tackling all kinds of issues from wrinkles to dark spot to loss of firmness and elasticity and everything in between. The ultimate result is skin that is refined, rejuvenated, and ultra hydrated. I’m so excited to share these products because not only are the ingredients top-notch, every single product also gives an exceptional user experience with its texture, seamless absorption, feel and look on the skin. It pairs so well with my other daily essentials including vitamin C and AHA, with no adverse reaction or irritation. More than just high quality, the packaging is absolutely gorgeous and pleasing to the eye.
PRICE: 34.70 / 130ml
WHAT IT IS: A pore clearing, gentle exfoliating and hydrating toner
TEXTURE/FRAGRANCE/FEEL: thin clear liquid, no detectable fregrance, non-greasy and absorbs quickly
The synergistic combination of 80% of Galactomyces and MGF complete some heavier anti-aging benefits: boosting collagen, fight fine lines and firming the skin. Additionally this toner also relies on portulaca extract, heartleaf, and tea-tree extract to purify and hydrate the skin. These ingredients are highly effective for exfoliating dead skin cell, clarify pores, sebum, and provide black/whitehead control. I really believe a good toner preps my skin for better absorption of other products, and certainly this particularly one helps me to achieve a clean oil-free canvas at the first step of my routine. The texture is very fluid, most suited to be applied with a cotton pad. However I usually like to apply toners with my hands and pat it in (3X in the morning and 7X at night). Because of the thin texture, there can be some spillage of the product when using my hand. I don’t detect any fragrances. Not only do I have combination to oily skin, my skin is also sensitive with age spot and hormonal acne along the chin. This toner has clarified my skin, reduced my pore size and dramatically evened the tone of my skin. Additionally, I find that my oiliness in the mornings has been dramatically reduced. I highly recommend if you have any of the issues I have. I have been using it twice a day it makes a huge difference in about two weeks.
PRICE: $97.40 / 40mL

These ingredients promises skin repair, drastic refining of wrinkles, restoring of skin firmness and elasticity, as well as evening and toning of skin texture. The serum has a thin gel-like consistently with no noticeable smell. It is extremely easy to apply, absorbs quickly into the skin and it does not feel greasy. I feel that it really helps to soften and firm the skin, and plump any fine lines and wrinkles. I also love the silky feel. If you can splurge, this proved to be a worthwhile investment. The smoothness and even tone of my skin lets me go without makeup. Compared to other products with similar high quality ingredients, this is actually affordable. It really is quite an all-in-one concentrated solution.

Also, it contains suitable ingredients for troubled skin such as tea tree and heartleaf extracts, perfect to keep calm my adult acne. But the time I get to this step (after toner, and serum), I already love how this makes my skin feel so much that sometimes I cheat and use it as my daytime moisturizer only. It seems to give my skin that supple, healthy and brightened glow. It has a nice thick texture and goes on smoothly, absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave any greasy or oil. I love the fact tht it doesn’t irritate sensitive skin. This is the first step after serum that really gets my face feeling hydrated and soft.
