I chose the IUNIK Propolis Vitamin Synergy Serum ($14.99) and the IUNIK Vitamin Hyaluronic Acid Vitalizing Toner because I wanted to try a soothing and calming product that has ingredients that are good for dry and sensitive skin. I recently moved and I’m pretty stressed out, so my skin has gotten drier lately. I also have contact dermatitis due to allergies or product ingredients when testing, which made my skin more sensitive. So, I wanted to try something that would moisturize my skin and heal it a bit.
IUNIK Propolis Vitamin Synergy Serum helped to soothed my skin after microdermabrasion! Read more to find out how.

Good for Dry and Sensitive Skin Types
Where to Buy: UNIQUE4U $14.99
My skin condition when I tried the IUNIK Propolis Vitamin Synergy Serum was dry, in need of exfoliation, a few blemishes on chin area, and some redness by lip and nose. I use microdermabrasion about 2-3x a week. As I wrote above, my skin has been pretty dry lately. I’ve also had some darker spots, so I was happy to try a nourishing serum that had both propolis and vitamin C.
This is a really good healing and vitamin C serum because it has propolis, which is a healing ingredient derived from bee pollen. So, it not only heals whatever can give you dark spots (many times its old acne scars or other types of skin damage), but the vitamin C will fade these marks from your face with consistent use.
Ingredients in IUNIK Propolis Vitamin Synergy Serum
Propolis has anti-inflammatory and wound healing properties. It’s great for skin healing from any irritation, whether it be acne or something else. The high amount of propolis extract at 70% means that the IUNIK Propolis Vitamin Synergy Serum is extremely powerful in terms of both healing and moisturization.
Sea buckthorn fruit, or Hippophae Rhamnoides, has vitamin C, E, and K. It’s used to brighten and clear skin. This is the main source for the vitamin C serum, at 12%.
When looking for a vitamin C serum, you need to consider your own skin type and needs. Why do you need a vitamin C serum? Is your skin already healed, but you need brightening? Or, is your skin still red and irritated? If you still have those skin conditions, you would benefit from choosing a healing ingredient along with your vitamin C serum. So, while the IUNIK Propolis Vitamin Synergy Serum has 12% vitamin C extract, your priority should be healing first with the dark spot correction overall for after the healing is complete.
The IUNIK Propolis Vitamin Synergy Serum left behind a squeaky and sticky feel the first time I used it. I may have used too much of it, which I also did with the IUNIK Vitamin Hyaluronic Acid Vitalizing Toner.
The serum smells fresh, similar to other honey or propolis serums or ampoules. It actually has a soft natural Bergamot perfume that is gentle and lovely.
A little definitely goes a long way with the serum, it is ver
After the first night, I noticed my skin was lifted and there was a slight improvement in redness. I used less and I noticed that my skin did feel better after I used less, and it helped the IUNIK Propolis Vitamin Synergy Serum better absorption.
I noticed my skin was lifted and there was a slight improvement in redness.
The more I used it, the softer I noticed my skin was becoming. As I wrote before, I needed to exfoliate when I first tried these IUNIK products, but the toner and serum softened my skin a lot before I did some microdermabrasion.
After I did the microdermabrasion treatment, I was left with some red and irritated spots. The toner and the IUNIK Propolis Vitamin Synergy Serum were so gentle on my irritated skin! It felt soothing and calming, and I didn’t have to use a sheet mask to cut redness and irritation after the treatment, which is a first.
Should You Buy It?
Yes. This is a great Korean healing and vitamin C serum. The propolis has great calming and healing benefits. You will definitely notice a difference in the IUNIK Propolis Vitamin Synergy Serum.
