With suffering from dehydrated skin I try to find the best products that will tend to this. Despite me drinking a lot of water, all the time, my skin always needs that extra help.
For a couple of years now I have been using a serum under my moisturiser. I was finding that moisturisers alone just weren’t getting me the results I wanted. Serums are great, as they reach lower layers of your skin that a moisturiser won’t get to.
I have tried ones from Arbonne, Clarins, Elizabeth Arden, and Pixi Beauty. All of these served an additional purpose along with hydrating my skin. But none of them were like my new Vitamin C serum.
Skinkissed have been a bit of a social media phenomenon over the last year. I’ve seen lots of different bloggers trying out their serum, and raving about it.
There is a misconception in blogging that everyone all the time hypes up every product they lay their hands on. This may be true for some, but not the majority. Myself, and other close blogging friends, know the importance of being honest. There are a lot of products I do try out that I don’t talk about. Often because I haven’t enjoyed using them, or they didn’t suit my skin.
I now know why I kept seeing good reviews about SkinKissed. I’ve had my bottle for 2 months, and I am in love. I’m not lying.
Skinkissed are a UK based, cruelty free company, that solely sell the Vitamin C Serum.
What Is A Vitamin C Serum?
Using Vitamin C within a serum has many benefits. It’s been a super popular ingredient over recent years with Dermatologists & Bloggers alike.
You should always look on the ingredient list of a product that claims to be packed with it. If it is listed within the first few ingredients then you know you’re on to a winner. The higher up the list the more of the Vitamin is has.
Skinkissed list Vitamin C as their 3rd ingredient. Only beaten by Water and Rosa Damascene (rose water). Two ingredients that can only better the skins hydration levels also.
Vitamin C helps to improve the skins collagen levels, which decrease as we get older. It fights against pigmentation on the skin, to get a more even looking complexion. There are also great benefits to Acne and Acne scarring. It is an anti-inflammatory so helps soothe skin, and takes away redness that can come with acne.
A Vitamin C serum may often contain hyaluronic acid. This is a great addition to the serum as it helps with hydration, as it is very moisturising. The Skinkissed serum contains this.
How It’s Been On My Skin
Since using this Skinkissed Serum I have felt more comfortable in my own skin than I have done in a while. I use this of a morning, under my moisturiser and make up.
2 to 3 drops of the serum covers my face, and on to my neck also. I massage it in for a few seconds, and apply my moisturiser straight after. There is no greasy feeling to this serum, and it creates no extra shine, or oily look to my skin.
My make up has actually been applying to my face much better, and lasting longer also. I’m now more confident to go all day, in work, with no make up on, only skincare products.
I’ve noticed how much brighter my skin is, and how my complexion has evened out. I have reduced darkness under my eyes, and also more colour all over.
I didn’t have any side effects to this serum. However due to the potency of it, you may feel a slight tingle when you first start to use it. After a while your skin will get used to this, as it is the product working for you.
Price Point to Usage
Skinkissed is not a brand that you will see in your drugstores or beauty departments. However, it is still priced at £39.95 a bottle. Because the ingredients are so pure, and limited, by using only what’s necessary, the quality of the product reflects in the price.
From using it, I would repurchase this again when my current bottle runs out. Plus, it has opened my eyes to looking for more skincare products that contain Vitamin C.
The Skinkissed serum is now a fully cemented part of my skincare collection. I’d recommend this to friends who feel like their skin is dehydrated, dull looking, and in general feels like it needs a boost.
To shop their serum you can head to their website. They have individual serums or bundles to buy them in. Making the cost a little cheaper if you and a friend split it.
I’d love to know if you have tried this serum before, or a Vitamin C one? If you’re new to using serums, have I persuaded you to try one out. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask me.
