It contains prebiotics (Oligofructose and Inulin) as well as fibre which promote a healthy digestive system, and Vitamin C, a key ingredient in maintaining skin elasticity and radiance.InnerShine® Prune Essence also contains antioxidants naturally occurring in prunes – antioxidants protect cells from harmful free radicals in the body.
I tried a box of this Brands Innershine Prune Essence. I had initially thought that the berry essence would contain antioxidants from the variety of berries and would be good for the skin but since it is formulated for the eyes, I bought the prune essence instead as it is claims to be beneficial for radiant skin as well as for intestinal health to help relief constipation.Wholesome and nutritious, one serving of InnerShine® Prune Essence provides 12% of the body’s daily fibre needs and is perfect supplement to one’s diet. What’s more, with no added sugar, colouring or preservatives, there is really no better way to nourish and cleanse your body (taken from brandsworld.com.sg)
I have to say that after one box, there was no difference in my skin condition. No added radiance or elasticity or anything that the product claimed. In fact, I think that the product description might be a bit exaggerated. The Vitamin C content is quite low at 25mg per serving, so for it to maintain skin elasticity and radiance as the description says does not sound too believable. I didn't achieve "glowing skin" or "radiant looks" but I am still hoping that the innershine prune essence will help me to achieve it. As I purchased 2 boxes from the Watsons 2 for $22 promotion, I will continue to monitor its effectiveness. Although I have doubts on the difference 2 boxes of prune essence can make on my skin.
But one thing that this prune essence does well is that it did help improve my bowel movement. It did help make it easier to go to the toilet. And this is something I like about the Brands Innershine prune essence. On top of that, some facialists told me that if you suffer from constipation, it will show on your face as toxic is not cleared from the body so this would result in clogged pores/pimples. I don't know how true is this but if it is true then I hope that improved bowel movement would bring along with it clearer skin.
The taste of the prune essence is the same as the prune juice you can get from the supermarket. So when I drank my first bottle I wondered what is the difference between this and those at the supermarket juice. As the price of the innershine prune essence is much higher than that of the supermarket juice, there should be some factor that differentiates it. I will try the supermarket ones and do a comparison later.
All in all, after one box, there are no effects on my skin but it did help with bowel movement. Perhaps there is a need to consume more to observe effects on the skin but the price is a deterrence to long term consumption. If there are observable changes by the end of the second box, I might consider repurchasing.
