Today, I am going to talk about an essence called “Power 10 Formula CO Effector” from a Korean brand “It’s Skin”. So, let’s get started.
$23 AUD for 30 ml
An elasticity boosting serum perfect for mature skin.
Working effectively to replenish diminished collagen levels, the It’s Skin Power 10 Formula CO Effector ensures skin remains firm and radiant for longer. Quickly absorbed, the lightweight formula features a blend of active ingredients which work to boost hydration, elasticity and collagen levels in the skin for youthfully rejuvenated results.

My Experience with It’s Skin Power 10 Formula CO Effector With Phyto Collagen:
This essence comes housed in a yellow colored glass bottle with a dropper. The bottle bears the name of the serum and other information in Korean language. There are no additional information provided on the bottle, which explains the purpose of the serum. The dropper has an slanted edge, which makes it all the more difficult to pull it out of the bottle. Overall, I would say that it is not a user-friendly packaging.
Power 10 Formula is one of the best sellers of It’s Skin. Each type has different benefits and will improve your skin. It is free from colorants and alcohols. There are 13 different types of essence in total which includes VC (vitamin C, brightening), CO (collagen, elasticity), YE (yeast, vitality), GF (grifola frondosa, moisturizing), WH (arbutin, whitening), Q10 (Q10, firming), PO (chameleon, pores control), VB (vitamin B, sebum control), VE (vitamin E, anti-oxidizing), WR (caviar, anti-aging), LI (licorice, soothing and anti-pigmentation) and Propolis (brightening and anti-acne).
If you see in all the essence bottles, only short forms are present and no proper explanation about the product is given anywhere. This makes it difficult to identify a product, especially when you are picking it from direct Korean outlet.
The one that I bought is the “CO Effector”. CO Effector is a skincare serum infused with plant sourced phyto collagen extracts that penetrate into the inner dermal layers to hydrate skin from within. This is the second best seller of this line. As I told before, this essence is a concentrated phyto collagen extract which penetrates deeply into the skin to nourish and hydrate. It will also create more elasticity and makes the skin glowing. The serum is slightly cloudy but mostly transparent, and it’s consistency is slightly thicker and has no specific fragrance. It’s an essence where you will need 2-3 drops for your whole face and neck. But surprisingly, it is easy to blend and my skin absorbs this really quickly. It doesn’t leave my skin feeling heavy or sticky at all, which is great considering how it isn’t exactly the lightest in texture.
After application, skin feels moist and I usually use this right after I applied my toner during day and night. However, I’ve been using it for a month or so and I didn’t feel any difference compared to when I didn’t use it. It adds a lot of moisture to the skin, and makes my face a bit glowing and plump, which is short-lived. Overall, this is an average serum which doesn’t do anything extraordinary to the skin and I would rather say that it didn’t even live upto its claim.
