*Disclaimer this product was provided to me to by the brand without any demands or formal request for review.  I am sharing this review based on my findings and testing schedule outlined by me without influence from an outside source. A more detailed outline on my personal PR handlings and guidelines will be posted very soon. 

Welcome!

MYB (MindYourBeauty) is still very much “under construction”, so  please excuse my mess as I work through some of these growing pains and build pieces around your visit here. I am happy to answer any of your questions or comments and will do so as promptly as I’m able. I am so excited to share this review and brand with you, as it has created quite the “hype”  by fellow reviewers and skin care enthusiasts, but for good reason! Read on to hear my version of the story.

Brand & Claims

107 One O Seven prides itself on natural ingredients derived from fermented vinegar and oriental herbs while promising the delivery of healthy, purified, and rejuvenated skin. I am always intrigued by a brand that blends ancient traditional ingredients with modern formulation. They have a great English page that is easy to navigate without any need for translation tools from what I experienced.

Ingredients

Note*I won’t be going through a detailed outline or explanation about the science and chemistry of ingredients in skincare and will have a post up of my review style outlining what you can expect from my blog going forward , very soon.

A list of the ingredients can be found here via (I don’t recommend using this site for anything outside of obtaining ingredient lists)  Cosdna. They appear to have been carefully entered by another blogger, just take note that the fermented vinegar is not indexed in Cosdna so click on the bottom box to organize the list and view it’s proper place in the formula. The star of this show (which seems to be showcased near the top of the formula), is a naturally derived fermented vinegar that has been studied and developed by a passionate pharmacist who took these rich amino acids found in fermented vinegar that are meant to aide in signs of aging and heal troubled skin. The brand story and history are a must read here  The foundation on which the brand was created is admirable and the lineup of the ingredients supporting this fermented goodness are just as impressive, and engage my internal nerd. One O Seven has carefully formulated this luxurious cream to encompass the aforementioned ingredients in a perfect balance of traditional herbs and scientifically studied ingredients all harmoniously housed in 50 mls of this glass like jar.

Packaging

I love the simply stated elegance this packaging exudes, it sits beautifully perched atop my vanity. The product is sealed by a mirrored lid that adds a sleek look to the beautiful jar.  The final touches include the pretty blue text that wrap this product in simple elegance. I’m sure a spatula was included, but that seems to have been tossed among several others I stash.  But who cares, because I think they are now offering a mother of pearl one here  that suits this little bundle of luxury perfectly! I’ve been swooning over other items in the line and my inner fangirl may or may not be stalking One O Seven’s Instagram since Jen with Beautibi had introduced the brand not too long ago.

The way this mildly scented cream transforms on the skin is truly special and sets it aside from other moisturizers, wrapping my skin in a pillowy rich texture that melts onto the skin creating a nice hydrating watery layer that once absorbed leaves behind a truly magical feel to my skin that looks radiant and healthy. I tested this for well over a month before moving on to other testing, giving my skin ample time to get a feel for the product and gauge results. The crazy, unpredictable Colorado weather helped lay out plenty of skin challenges brought on by the dry air and rapidly changing temperatures.

Testing and Final Thoughts

After evaluating some first impressions and how well the cream was going to play with other products, getting this to fit into my routine was seamless. I suspected this might be too rich for my daytime routine, but it quickly became a welcome step in my day & night routines. During the day I used the cream as my last step before sunscreen and it provided me with enough balanced moisture throughout the day without feeling heavy nor any signs of pilling. I would like to note that face makeup is a rare occurrence for me and it usually comes in the form of  something light such as a Bb Cream or tinted moisturizer and concealer when needed. I wasn’t disappointed with this product’s ease of performance in layering with my makeup, skincare, and sunscreen in any combination in the environments aforementioned. That being said, I don’t think everyone, regardless of skin type, will enjoy the weight and finish, but I do think this has something to offer for most all skin types.

One of my favorite things about this cream is the finish and feel of my skin throughout the day. The watery layer I mentioned dries to a healthy, nourished, dewy satin finish, that I personally love. But,…I also know not everyone likes this finish, regardless of skin type. In my night routine this cream performs phenomenally well and probably works its best magic here. I feel like this provides me with enough nourishment while sealing & feeding my skin all the fermented vinegar goodness it has to offer. Once I had used the cream solidly, mostly twice per day for 6 weeks or so, I sadly put it aside for other testing. I honestly miss it. The luxurious texture was a pleasure to use and most importantly it left me with nourished skin that makes me less inclined to put on face makeup. Again, I feel like this has a lot to offer for all skin types, but performs optimally for dehydrated skin needing that nourishing layer and prevention of water loss throughout the day. This brand is luxurious with the luxury price tag to match. If you’re looking to add some luxury to your routine I think you will be able to find it here.

Where to buy

The CoreFlex Cream and other items from 107 One O Seven can be found via Beautibi here whom I have shopped with often, and is one of my favorite choices for beautifully curated Asian skincare items. The cream is available from her shop at $48 and though it’s sold out she carries the beautiful mother of pearl spatula set as well.

One O Seven’s USA website has an easily navigated site , but I’m not sure of their shipping policy or price.
