As a part of my skincare routine, I have recently incorporated an new Korean skincare line called M. Curie. They had pre-launch special in May, where if you created an account on their site, you received one of their mask sheets along with a few samples of their serum and cream. I was curious about this brand from the time I saw their advertisements on Instagram, especially since they were “science based”. So, what is the science behind their primary products? It involves the carrier method of Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF). In humans when EGF binds to EGF receptors, it plays a part in the healing process of wounds through regeneration of cells in the epidermal and dermal layers in various organs. The M. Curie line claims to have a patented component called MTD26, which serves as a speedy carrier for the EGF to reach the receptors, 26 minutes to be precise.
I initially had planned to do a full review in a month but I have change my skincare routine a couple of times so I want to restart it again and give it two months instead. This way I have more time to more accurately record and analyze my skin’s condition. This month they also previewed new products to be released in August. They have a special where you can sign up to receive free samples from the new line as well as some from their existing ones. You only pay for shipping which is 2,500 KRW. I’m not sure if I want to try them out yet. I am interested yet at the same time I don’t want to become overwhelmed with products again. I am also considering switching over to a vegan and cruelty-free product line. In the meantime, here are some looks of the M.Curie products from my initial purchase.
