numbuzin 3 Fermented Skin Products Reviews

numbuzin 3 Fermented Skin Products Reviews

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

Skin barrier can get sensitive from the use of active ingredients. It is good to have recovery routines to strengthen vulnerable skin barrier with nourishing, hydrating, and moisturizing ingredients. One way to do that is by adding fermented skincare into your routine. In today’s post “numbuzin 3 Fermented Skin Products Reviews”, I would be reviewing fermented product line No.3 of the Korean cosmetics brand “numbuzin” - No.3 Super Glowing Essence Toner, and the No.3 Skin Softening Serum. For your reference, I have dry and acne prone skin that is on the sensitive side. So, see if you find the numbuzin no 3 products review relevant to you.

Products' technical information is from numbuzin official stores sources, but reviews are my own. Please note that prices may vary with numbuzin authorized sellers so you might want to compare when buying.

Fermented Skin Products

Probiotics and prebiotics are the result of microbiome technology, a popular trend many beauty and personal care companies are using. There are not enough studies to back the results but it is thought that probiotic skin care makes skin healthy and safe for most people, if not all.

In my words, fermented ingredients are nutritious topical food for your skin. The more fermented a formulation, the more nourishing the product is. Using prebiotics and probiotics on the skin, one starts seeing results in just a week's time of using it. Fermented skin products aka microbiome skincare help to restore healthy microbiome for skin. It strengthens damaged skin barrier, reduces wrinkles, and improves its immune system by supporting the skin biome i.e. the good bacteria, making the skin healthy and resilient to environmental stressors.

So if you are new to fermented skincare, then start gradually to avoid any reaction. Try not to use more than a few drops on the face and neck. Even if you are used to fermented formulations, less is always more.

I talked about the technical side of microbiome technology in a previous post which I will link down below. Today I wanted to give my thoughts on probiotics face care.

numbuzin No 3 Super Glowing Essence Toner How To Use:

After cleansing, pour numbuzin essence in hand and apply on the face. Pat for absorption. Or, dispense on cotton pad(s) and apply. Or leave them on for 1-2 minutes where the skin is dryer for more hydration. Pat later for absorption.

numbuzin No.3 Super Glowing Essence Toner Review:

numbuzin No.3 Super Glowing Essence Toner has a watery, slightly viscous texture with a pale hue. It does not have a tacky feel and absorbs well. The product tingles a bit upon application, respective of a toner.

numbuzin toner 3 is not for very dry skin types. I have very dry skin so I need to layer the product.

numbuzin no 3 toner combines two skincare steps in one – essence and toner eliminating the need to use separate products and saving time. It can be used as a standalone treatment product under the moisturizer. You can use it with other treatment products but you would not need to.

The no 3 toner can be worn throughout the year for AM and PM routines.

A downside is that numbuzin super glowing essence has three perfuming ingredients which make for a strong fragrance. I have sensitive skin that does not tolerate fragrance. After using it twice I realized I could not use it on the face. Instead, I am using it for hands and body and already seeing the skin improving. Also, toners are technically not made for my skin so I prefer not using them. My skin loves essences, but after using this product I can confidently say it wears more like a toner than an essence.

If you love toners, or don’t have sensitive skin or an issue with fragrance, then I suggest you try the product. If sensitive skin types want to try, consider a patch test. The 50 fermented ingredients in the No 3 essence toner make it a nourishing and a solid formulation.

numbuzin No.3 Skin Softening Serum

numbuzin No.3 Skin Softening Serum

numbuzin No.3 Skin Softening Serum Review

numbuzin No.3 Skin Softening Serum, 1.69 Fl Oz (50ml), US$ 28 is a fermented texture care serum with golden ratio of galactomyces and bifida to strengthen skin barrier, restore skin microbiome, improve rough texture and tone, reduce enlarged pores and appearance of wrinkles, and treat dull and dry skin making it healthy. It is oil and fragrance free.

numbuzin 3 serum is suitable for all skin types especially combination skin. It addresses pores, and rough and textured skin concerns.

The skin softening serum comes in a bottle with a dropper.


numbuzin No 3 Skin Softening Serum Ingredients:

Bifida Ferment Lysate (42%), Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate (21%), Butylene Glycol, Methyl Gluceth-20, Purified Water, Niacinamide, PEG-90, 1,2-Hexanediol, Glycerin, Squalane, Alteromonas Ferment Extract, Silk Extract, Goat Milk Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Panthenol, Adenosine, Glycereth-26, Xanthan Gum, Polyglyceryl-3 Distearate, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Glyceryl Stearate Citrate, Polyglyceryl-3 Methylglucose Distearate, Carbomer, Tromethamine, Ethylhexylglycerin, Caprylyl Glycol, Tropolone, Disodium EDTA.

numbuzin No.3 Skin Softening Serum How To Use:

Apply a few drops of numbuzin serum 3 or as needed all over the face and neck. Pat for absorption. Follow up with a moisturizer.

numbuzin No.3 Skin Softening Serum Review:

The numbuzin No.3 Skin Softening Serum has a light, watery gel texture that glides on the skin and fully absorbs. It does not leave any tackiness. It keeps the skin hydrated, plump and dewy. My skin loves fermented ingredients, so I personally like layering it twice. But if you're new to fermented skincare then I suggest you start with not more than a few drops until your skin gets used to it.

numbuzin no 3 serum can be used in all seasons and for both AM and PM skin routines. Try not to use active ingredients such as retinol, AHAs, and Vitamin C with it unless you have done so before and you believe your skin has that level of threshold to bear that. 

I am currently using a matte sunscreen on the numbuzin no 3 skin softening serum, a gentle sheen still peaks through. Other times I wear an occlusive moisturizer over it, and the skin looks marvelous to touch the whole day. It gives the Korean glass skin effect. Numbuzin skin softening serum has silk extract which makes for a seamless base under makeup. The silk ingredient is one of the reasons numbuzin derived its branding name "softening" from, but that is not to divert your attention from the main ingredient sharing that name that is there to perform and deliver results, bifida and galactomyces ferment filtrate. This is a combination complex ingredient in the ratio of 2:1 that will improve bumpy skin texture and roughness, making it smooth. Formulation of the galactomyces serum is supplemented with ingredients such as glycerin and squalane that are great for dry skin types, also making the product a good choice for fermented skincare beginners.

Fermented products can sometimes be pricey because it takes more time to produce the main ingredient. But this galactomyces skincare product is improving my skin and making it healthy. I found numbuzin no3 serum as one of the best probiotic for skin that I have tried.

numbuzin Accessories


Numbuzin gifted me a very high quality, beautiful hand mirror that is perfect for putting on makeup. I really loved its sleek handle and the comfortable grip.

I also got my very first bunny ears. I was excited to see the skincare spa head band. I cherish these accessories and will be using them for a long time. Thank you numbuzin, I really appreciate the gesture!

Beauty Products not for me


  1. I've heard so many good things about numbuzin! Thanks for your review will definitely try it out ;)

  2. I haven't used fermented skincare products before, but I'm definitely intrigued by the Skin Softening Serum. I'm not a fan of fragrance in skincare, so the first Super Glowing Essence Toner wouldn't be for me. However, I like that the second serum is fragrance-free. Also, the bunny ears headband is so cute!

  3. I haven't heard of this brand before, it sounds like each product has worked well for you x

  4. Never heard of the brand but I always want to have the skin glass type so reading this got me pretty hype up.

  5. I've never heard of or tried fermented skincare products before but this has rave reviews, great post.

  6. Never heard of fermented skincare products but I have seen a lot of recommendations for Korean skin care, glad it's worked well for you and thanks for the review!

  7. This looks like a great brand and product. Yes it can be frustrating to have both dry and acne prone skin so the right product is key.

  8. I feel like I need something like this after I wear make-up (which is rarely at this point). I get irritated skin quite easily so maybe something fermented may add an extra layer of hydration and protection. Thanks for sharing this!
