Black raspberries are not black berries, though they look the same.... I've eaten them here in Korea (I haven't been able to find regular raspberries), they do not taste the same, very woody, but not bad. And Here in Korea, Skinfood has a whole skin care line using actual extracts from the black raspberry(exactly what this is supposed to do, I don't know....
Black Raspberry Youngyang Serum
-Containing rubus coreanus miquel extract which was used to take care of course and dry skin in the old days and sap from twelve herbal plants, this nutrient serum instantly relieves dryness of your skin.
Smells - Stinks! It smells like wood (maybe raspberry brambles) and pickles. Plus it's really intensely smelly!
Texture- A cream..... Bizarre for a serum, which are usually clear, mostly oil, sometimes water based. But a cream? A white cream? Bizarre.
Buy?-NO! Too smelly!
Black Raspberry youngyang eye cream (wrinkle Care)
- This functional eye cream rapidly enhances resilience around your eyes
-Containing rubus coreanus miquel extract which was used to take care of course and dry skin in the old days and sap from twelve herbal plants, this nutrient cream instantly relieves dryness of your skin.
Smells - same as the serum, wood and pickles.....
Texture- A smoth nice cream. A little sticky, but absorbs pretty well. Not too heavy for summer, and really nice for drier skin.
Effectiveness- Thick, creamy and nice. My skin felt soft the next morning. Not amazingly soft, but better than your average cream.
Buy?-No, I just can't get past the smell....
The line overall is lackluster. Maybe if I had tried the full sizes, instead of 3 days worth of samples, I would have felt differently, but I don't think so. The smell was werid, and the product lack luster. This is a pass If I've ever seen one.
