My Experience: DrGL Skin Repair Serum

I didn't want to review this DrGL Skin Repair Serum for the longest time, so I decided to just write about my experience with this product. Reason being, I never finished using the product. I know this is highly raved by many people, which is the main reason why I bought it. The DrGL Skin Repair Serum contains some active plant stem cell extracts (you can read more about it at her website here : Price: $98 for 10ml.

I think the DrGL Skin Repair Serum did have some effects on my skin. I observed a slightly faster skin healing rate, that is faster healing of active pimples and faster fading of pimple scars. But wasn't a miracle product. I think AHAs work as well as the serum at a fraction of the price. The BA said that her customers experience this tightening of their skin when they use it. But I didn't experience any of that. 

What I do like about the product is that it is so lightweight, like water. Just some light patting and everything is absorbed really quickly. 

The main reason why I didn't like it was that I had to keep this serum in the refrigerator. To me, products that have to be refrigerated are a chore because I have to walk downstairs to the kitchen just to get a few drops of product then walk back up to complete the rest of my skincare routine. And I don't like to have to touch things and get my hands dirty when I apply skincare. So it really isn't the contents of the product that I don't like, but the fact that I have to keep it in the fridge.

And how I knew for sure I didn't really like the product wasn't only because I couldn't see any significant effects on my skin but was when I started doubling the amount I use just so I could finish using it quickly. I never finished the serum, by the way, which is why I didn't want to review it. I had the patience to use it for about 2-3 weeks every night but I just kept forgetting to use it after that because it is in the fridge and when I remember I just want to quickly use it just so I can finish it. After 2 months of the product sitting in the fridge, I just used it on my neck, for the sake of finishing the product. 

At $98 for 10ml, it is quite expensive. The price increased after the change in packaging. Dr Georgia Lee has successfully built a reputation of trustworthiness so as a consumer, her name just seems to equate to a good high quality product. Unfortunately, I didn't experience that great an effect to warrant another purchase. I think this serum will be good for those with a skincare concern that needs to be addressed, eg pimples, scarring or anti-aging concerns. I've heard good things about the Collagen Essence, and I might buy that the next time.

(Disclaimer: She didn't ask me to buy this serum when I saw her at her clinic, so maybe I have no real need to use this serum, but her BAs at the counter like to rave about this so I bought it to try. They say that their customers buy a lot at one go because it is a really good product with tightening effect. So, I honestly think that if there is no skin concern to address, I don't think the effects are visible. But if I were to use it, it would be like I'm buying insurance for my skin.)


  1. eee! her stuff is so expensive! remember her new sunblock was so sticky and oily :S:S:S i think it's now more ex cos of her new fancy packaging lor :( and i really loved her old sunblock some more, i wish it didn't have to run out :(:(:(

  2. what if I tell you there is product that can provide you the same or better results with a fraction of the price you paying now and best part of this product is truly 100% natural. It is completely free of chemical fragrances, preservatives, colouring or medical ingredients and can be used directly on the eyes and mouth, will you be interested?
