Deenar, 30
Combination skin, concerned about comedones, blackheads and whiteheads
After using it for about a week, I started seeing positive results. I notice that it helped my pores appear less visible and my makeup was able to stay intact for longer. It also helps mattify skin so it works like a primer on my skin. I would recommend the product to my friends because it works.

Kristy Chan, 33
Acne-prone, combination skin, concerned about comedones, blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, blemishes, and acne scars
After 2 weeks of usage, I noticed that my pores clog less easily and are more refined. It also makes my skin feel less oily but more hydrated at the same time. I like the product and will consider repurchasing it.

Novita, 33
Acne prone, dehydrated skin, concerned about comedones, blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, blemishes, and acne scars
I love that it’s an all-natural product without artificial fragrance. Its texture is also lightweight and non-greasy. I like that my skin feel more hydrated after using it and that it is a customised solution according to skin type and problem areas. I will repurchase it.

Diana Hay, 34
Combination skin, concerned about comedones, blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, and blemishes
The most obvious result is its mattifying benefit, but I also see my pores become more refined after using it for two weeks. It helped clear up my skin gradually. I observed less redness after three weeks of usage. I’ve always been willing to try new products to see if it works on me, and I’m glad that alche{me} does.

Jasmine Tsoi, 28
Combination skin, concerned about comedones, blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, blemishes, and acne scars
The product really helps keep oil at bay and I love how lightweight it feels. I like the idea of customising my skincare products and will consider using other products by alche{me}.

Chen Shumin, 31
Combination skin, concerned about comedones, blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, blemishes, and acne scars
I’ve not heard of the brand before but was intrigued by its product name because I am looking for something that can help mattify my skin. It did deliver the mattifying benefit because my skin became less oily since using it.

Lyn Yeo, 32
Combination to oily skin, concerned baout comedones, blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, and blemishes
Within 4 days, I started seeing the mattifying effect on my skin, and after 7 days I noticed my pores looking more refined. Though I don’t really like its scent, I would recommend the product because it helps to control oil and has a lightweight texture that’s easily absorbed by skin.

Janness Koh, 33
Combination skin, concerned about comedones, blackheads, and whiteheads
I really like the scent of the product and has a very lightweight texture for a serum – however I find that there’s a bit of stickiness on skin after application. The most significant result I saw was its mattifying effect, and would recommend it to those who needs solutions for oil control.

Winnie Liew, 29
Acne prone, combination skin, concerned about comedones, blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, blemishes, and acne scars
The alche{me} Clear & Mattify {me} Serum absorbs quickly into skin and has a herbal scent. While I don’t see much improvement in clearing out acne scars, it helps dry out pimples quickly. The product is also great at oil control.

Fara A., 33
Acne-prone, oily skin, concerned about comedones, blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, and blemishes
It feels heavy during the first try. The smell was not exactly very pleasant either. However after using it for a week, I realised that it really helps to control my oil! Typically I would need to use 6 or 7 sheets of blotting sheets per day but after using this product, I only needed at most 3 or 4 sheets! I was really impressed with how my skin feels after using it and how it has helped my makeup hold up.

Samantha Chen, 28
Combination to oily skin, concerned about texture of skin, dull and uneven skin tone, and pigmentation
After using the product faithfully, I started seeing an improvement in my skin’s texture. I like that its ingredients are mostly derived from plants and the product is paraben-free. It is also a pleasure to use as its texture is lightweight and easily absorbed. The product is good, and I wish more people know about it!

Li Wen, 32
Normal to dry skin, concerned about pigmentation
I have heard of the brand before trying it and what I’m most concerned about is whether it’ll be able to lighten the appearance of my pigmentation. The texture is considered lightweight and it leaves a thin layer of product on the skin surface. After using it for a week, I can see noticeable improvement to my skin tone. I also find that my complexion has brightened up and pigmentation seems to have lightened a bit. Because of the positive results I saw, I have already recommended the product to my friends. I am hopeful about seeing more positive changes after prolonged use.

Hazimah Binte Jumat, 28
Combination to oily skin, concerned about dull and uneven skin tone and pigmentation
I like that the product is easy to apply as it is lightweight, hydrating, and easily absorbed. Within one week of usage, I started seeing my dark spots lightened and my skin texture improved. I will recommend this product to friends who have similar problems to solve.

Meriana Ng, 29
Combination to oily skin, concerned about pigmentation
When I first heard about the product, I’m not convinced that it would help eliminate the dark spots on my skin because I’ve tried several products from other brands and none of them have worked. Surprisingly, the alche{me} Brighten {me} Serum did lighten my dark spots! After using the product for over two weeks, I started seeing results on the biggest dark spot on my face. I love how the product was personalised to my skin’s concerns and with the results I saw, I would like to try other products from alche{me}. Note that the smell of the product is a little medicinal; I’m not a fan of its scent at first, but I got used to it after a week.

Huishan, 32
Combination to oily skin, concerned about skin texture and dull and uneven skin tone
I started seeing positive results after using the alche{me} Brighten {me} Serum for over a week. My complexion looked brighter and more radiant and dark spots are visibly lightened. I also love that the product texture isn’t sticky and that the scent isn’t overpowering.

Shan Shan, 32
Combination to oily skin, concerned about texture of skin and pigmentation
The results started getting noticeable by about the 10-day mark. Dark spots on my skin appeared lighter and tiny bumps were reduced too. This makes me willing to repurchase the product and I’d want to try out other products from alche{me}.

Marianne, 26
Normal to dry skin, concerned about dull and uneven skin tone
I managed to notice my dark spots lightening after using it for over 2 weeks. And after using for more than a month, my skin also started feeling smoother and looking brighter than before. I would repurchase the product because I like that it is customised according to my skin’s needs.

Angeline Kong, 27
Normal to dry skin, concerned about pigmentation and dull and uneven skin tone
After using the product for four weeks, while I didn’t see significant lightening of my dark spots, the product improved my skin texture and evened out my skin tone within a week. So I will recommend it if you’re looking for something safe and natural and are looking to improve your skin’s texture and tone.

See Yi Ling, 33
Normal to dry skin, concerned about dull and uneven skin tone and pigmentation
This product brightened up my skin tone and improved my skin’s texture after I’ve used it for one week. I will consider repurchasing it because quality matters to me. The only thing I hope can be improved would be its fragrance – it’s not something that I like.

Karen, 29
Normal to dry skin, concerned about dull and uneven skin tone
I find the texture of the product lightweight, making it suitable for using in Singapore’s hot and humid weather. It improved my skin’s texture after about 2 to 3 weeks of usage, and I like that it also improved my skin’s hydration. The results are not significant enough for me to want to repurchase it, but it’s great that it’s a gentle product that doesn’t contain harsh chemicals.
