Essential Skincare Steps with numbuzin

Essential Skincare Steps with numbuzin

AD – Sponsored | “numbuzin” kindly gifted me their skincare in exchange for an authentic review.

Today I would be talking about "Essential Skincare Steps with numbuzin". But first let's touch upon what you need the most in skincare - cleansing. You need to cleanse your face every day to protect your skin from getting clogged by impurities. The second most important step is wearing a sunscreen to prevent your skin from harmful UV rays which results in DNA damage. The third step is using antioxidants such as ascorbic acid to scavenge free radicals from damaging the skin, protect it from external aggressors and environmental pollution, and repair collagen. So try doing these first before moving on to other supplementing vitamins and treatment ingredients for concerns such as acne or pigmentation.

I'm going to review three of numbuzin best-selling products, a Korean skincare brand. Product information is taken from numbuzin global stores but reviews are my own. Please note that prices may vary with their authorized sellers so you might want to compare when buying. The products that are trending globally are – Numbuzin No.1 Easy Peasy Cleansing Oil, Numbuzin No.1 Clear Filter Sun Essence, and Numbuzin No.5+ Vitamin Concentrated Serum. I have dry and acne prone skin that is on the sensitive side, so see if you find these products suitable.

Essential Skincare Steps with numbuzin
Numbuzin No.1 Easy Peasy Cleansing Oil

Numbuzin No.1 Easy Peasy Cleansing Oil Review  

Numbuzin No.1 Easy Peasy Cleansing Oil, 6.76 fl oz (200ml), USD 28 is an easy application vegan oil cleanser. Its natural cleansers Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil and Zea Mays (Corn) Oil removes waterproof makeup and sunscreen; deeply cleanses clogged pores to dissolve blackheads, white heads, excess sebum, and fine dust; and moisturizes the skin.

It comes in bottle packaging, and has a shelf life of 12 months.

Numbuzin cleansing oil is suitable for all skin types.

Numbuzin Cleansing Oil Ingredients:

Zea Mays (Corn) Oil, Isopropyl Myristate, Sorbeth-30 Tetraoleate, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Diisostearyl Malate, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Cyperus Esculentus Root Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Purified Water, Tocopheryl Acetate, Fragrance.

Numbuzin Cleansing Oil How To Use:

Use needed quantity of Numbuzin Cleansing Oil on dry face, wet hands to emulsify the oil, and massage for about 30 seconds. Rinse with lukewarm water.

I like to use a lavish amount of the oil, massage for 1-2 minutes, and let it sit for 5 minutes before washing it off with water. This is my personal spa treatment with the numbuzin cleanser oil.

Numbuzin Cleansing Oil Review:

The texture of numbuzin No.1 Easy Peasy Cleansing Oil is quite lightweight, thin, emollient, and moisturizing. Because the oil is highly emollient it may get in the eye while removing makeup, but gentle enough to not sting the eye.

One of the numbuzin Cleansing Oil ingredients is fragrance. I have sensitive skin, so I prefer avoiding fragrance. But the oils in the product are good and gentle enough to nullify any issue the fragrance may have caused me. But if you don’t have sensitive skin or an issue with fragrance, then I suggest you try the product because it is very gentle on the skin and makes for an enjoyable experience.

I also feel the numbuzin 1 Cleansing Oil is a bit lighter for heavy duty makeup and mascara that might not budge that easily and would take second application to remove that. Its usage is more suited for removing daily basis makeup, color, sunscreen, and impurities. With 200ml of product, it is great value for money and lasts long. Also, I don't wear makeup on daily basis, so typically cleansing oil is not my need. That’s why I enjoy cleansing with oil as my weekend spa treatment instead for the face, neck, and hands because it clears away the flakiness of my very dry skin, leaving it super supple and soft.

Numbuzin Sun Essence How To Use:

As the last step of skincare, apply about a teaspoon of the numbuzin sun essence on the face, neck, and ears about 15 minutes before sun exposure. It can also be dispensed directly on the skin with the targeted applicator. Re-apply as needed.

Numbuzin No 1 Sunscreen Review:

Numbuzin No.1 Clear Filter Sun Essence is a moisturizer type sunscreen. It has a cool green hue and a very lightweight mousse like texture and gives a semi matte finish.

I recently went a step further in testing sunscreens by just using them as a stand-alone product to see how much hydration or tackiness or clogged pores I get from them. On application, numbuzin No 1 sunscreen goes clear on the skin with no white cast. It glides well, instantly absorbs. It did not sting my eyes. It wears like a lightweight moisturizer. It sits completely non-greasy after second application. Numbuzin sun essence does not make my skin oily or clog pores. I can wear it as a stand-alone product in summers but as it is winter at the moment and I have very dry skin, I wear it on top of a moisturizer.

I’ve heard a few people complaining about the product pilling under makeup and specific treatment products. The results may vary because every skin type is different. I tried using numbuzin Sun Essence after a serum and before makeup, it did not pill for me. In fact, my makeup stayed nicely put the whole day. As for the soothing effect claim, it did not really give me that, so I wouldn't recommend it for sensitive skin types. This product seems a better fit for normal to oily skin types.

Numbuzin No 5 serum How To Use:

Apply a few drops of numbuzin No 5+ serum on the face avoiding the eye area before moisturizer or sunscreen. Do target treatment on spots. Pat for absorption.

Numbuzin No 5 Vitamin Concentrated Serum Review:

Numbuzin No.5 Glutathione Vitamin Concentrated Serum is a beautiful formulation that has nourishing and skin strengthening ingredients as well. Though the brand does not claim the product has antiaging benefits, but it does because of vitamin C. Like I said, vitamin C is a multitasking ingredient that not only brightens the complexion but also helps in collagen synthesis, so you get more out of the product.

You can use the numbuzin No 5 serum in two ways. Apply it before your sunscreen in the AM routine. For PM routine, apply before your night cream. I have sensitive skin, so I prefer using it in the PM routine.

You can choose to use Numbuzin Glutathione Serum through the year, but I like using vitamin C serums especially in winters.

Vitamin C is an active ingredient. I suggest not wearing numbuzin Glutathione Serum with retinol and AHAs. And if your skin is sensitive to vitamin C, search for a good formulation with the right pH, and start gradually.

Numbuzin 5+ serum has a thin, moisturizing texture that glides comfortably on the skin and absorbs well. I do spot treatment on my stubborn acne scars before locking it with a moisturizer. I have just started out so have yet to see it fading the scars away; I will update this one liner when that happens. Results can vary from person to person so I suggest staying patient with skincare. The product does not irritate my sensitive skin. I love the way it sits on the skin and leaves a satin finish with a light sparkle. Numbuzin Vitamin C Concentrated Serum is making my skin feel silky smooth, and radiating a sheen natural glow. I already see the skin texture improving with it. This is one of the most gentle vitamin C products and Korean blemish serum I have ever tried.

  4. The first time I heard about numbuzin was from your Instagram post, and they do seem like a nice brand! I'm definitely intrigued by the sunscreen, and the cleansing oil sounds nice for makeup days. I don't like when beauty products include fragrance either, but it's good the cleansing oil didn't irritate your skin.

  5. What a great in depth review! I'm actually in need of a new sun screen so maybe I'll check this one out - the serum sounds great too!
