I was been invited by the tns Skin lab's Malaysia to try and attest their latest findings on the most effective usage of these "powerful serums" of Antipodes ... Prior in trying the trio combination, I had first used the two serums already(the Hosanna Intense Hydrating Serum (old version of the new and improved formula of Hosanna H20 Intensive Skin- Plumping Serum) and the Apostle Skin- Brightening and Tone- Correcting Serum) for about a month before I was been introduced to try to power of the trios. Before I share my views and opinions about these intriguing products, let me tell you my thoughts on each of the product.

If you are looking for an instant freshness and hydration, this bottle of goodness is a must try. Every time I apply this on my face, I can feel my skin's thirst! It immediately sinks in without any feeling of stickiness. It has loads of organic ingredients with no harmful preservatives included and a vegetarian society approved. I believe that this product has been revised from the original name "Intense Hydrating Serum" which I had first used and eventually finished the full sized 25ml bottle. I am acne prone skin too, but so far I never had any experience of having any blemishes or irritation using this.

I'm not really much into oil based skincare product until I've tried the Trilogy's Rosehip Oil(reviews here) which happens to be listed in my HGs beauty list. Never thought that oil based skincare will works on my dry/acne prone skin type too. However, I've learned and discovered that using an oil based skincare product on my face is kinda' tricky . It seems that I can only use it at night time because I've observed that using it on day time, it causes me to break out. Perhaps its because I'm living in a tropical country and I'm applying makeup most of the time. Based on how it reacts to my skin I personally conclude that the best way to include it on my regime is during night time or If I'm gonna use it on daytime, the application would be minimal. I love the fact that it is made of two powerful combination of anti-aging components such as the Avocado and Rosehip Oil. The perfect combination to nourish the skin and reduce the appearance of lines and age spots.

One of my skin's concern aside from being dry and hydrated is the discoloration or having an uneven skin tone. I had a small brown spots at the right of my upper cheeks. So a brightener skincare products is also an essential to my daily skincare regime. I'm glad that I've tried this one, its effective and the price is way too far from the previous skincare that I've used which is costing almost triple of this product. It is a water based serum same as with the Hosanna H20 intensive skin-plumping serum that doesn't cause me to break out.
It helps on correcting dull uneven skintone indeed and has tons of pure powerful organic plants ingredients:)

MY EXPERIENCE :(Using the combination of the 3 Serums or the 3 Perfect Potions)
These trios was instructed to be use by mixing 2 drops of each and apply evenly all over the face and neck area every morning and night. I followed the given instructions and on my first 2 weeks of my application, yes I do notice the radiance and the difference already, however I've experienced a minimal appearance of blackheads. And I remember that my skin is incompatible using an oil based product during daytime. So I have to reduce the mixture of it, instead of 2 drops of the Avocado oil. I use only one drop of it instead, and the rest of the serums remain as is. And by doing this method, I had no issues on blackhead appearance anymore, thank goodness!:) Also applying of these 3 serums in one time is a genius. Saving time and works pretty impressing too! I can see the visible clarity and the radiance to my skin day by day. I will let you decide on how these 3 perfect Potions did to my face on the photos below.
