Hi guys, today I will do a quick review of the Marine Therapy Products, I have been trying out. As you know I like to have a couple of different therapies working in synergy on my skin, so I am definetly on lookout for marine-based products as many of the nutrients contained in the marine extracts and the ocean water itself are very beneficial for overall skin regeneration and maintenance.
Why it is a quick review? Because unfortunately these products have not delivered in terms of good results which could help to improve overall skin condition and health. In my opinion these are nice products to varying a degree, but they do not have a “wow factor” in my book and I will not repurchase them again.
Here is a demo of these products in action.

Even though I am not buying these again, I am listing products here in the order of preference.
1. Liole Multi-Seaweed Gel (http://en.lioele.com/main/index.php)
I had high hopes for this gel with 5 kinds of seaweed extracts, and I do prefer it out of the 4 products pictured above, however the gel itself is unremarkable, it does not cost much, about 11USD on Ebay but it also does not produce any significant result to comment on.
2. Missha Super Aqua Marine Stem Cell Toner (http://www.missha.net/)
3. Missha Super Aqua Marine Stem Cell Serum (http://www.missha.net/)
I got both products from http://www.strawberrynet.com and they are not cheap, ranging from 30-35 USD.
As you guys know, I love and trust Missha brand but I will admit that I have had a little hit and miss with some of their products, like the original snail line and also this particular Super Aqua Marine Stem Cell line, I was really expecting good results here, given that it is Missha and the range does have a good selection of interesting marine extracts, however the line itself felt very artificial to me. The toner is very perfumed and not very hydrating, it is nicely refreshing though, the serum is hydrating but not deep enough to be truly revitalizing for a marine-based product and it did dry out skin under my eyes and over my eyelids (i know you are not to suppose to put this serum there)-but I like to have products that will work on all parts of my face simultaneously without the need to purchase other specialized products that i think are not needed, since I am already using so much.
4. Mizon Marine Collagen Ampoule (http://www.mizon.co.kr/)
This product was just like blue water with no slip or serum-feel to it. It did do a very small lifting effect and a very slight moisturizing effect. Mizon is normally a great budget line that delivers very good products for a very small price and I do have some very good options from Mizon even though the brand overall cannot be compared to the quality of Missha. As far as this ampoule this is a much worse product then the Mizon`s snail ampoule which I have reviewed and I am using currently, albeit till the bottle runs out as well and I find a better option. At least with the snail ampoule, I am comfortable in recommending it at least to try and make up your own mind about the product.
So to sum up guys for today. Don’t run out and buy above products.
