NO CHEMICAL PRESERVATIVES!
Serum Ceuticals is an innovative brand that makes a truly all natural product with no chemical preservatives by instead of chemicals they use a natural charge – in this case from Radish Root Ferment Filtrate – to keep perishable ingredients fresh. This product has Albumin, a product used in skincare to give the appearance of tighter, firmer skin and enhance collagen production. A nice feature is that it can be used on the eye area, including the eyelids, an area frequently ignored in anti-aging topical remedies. Addressing crepey skin around the eye with a tightening effect is pretty impressive.
This serum contains several ingredients that serve both as a short term and long term fix for anti-aging concerns. For immediate appearance enhancement, it smooths and softens the appearance of skin with moisturizing ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid, and make the skin appear firmer and taut with Albumin that forms a layer on the skin and tightens it, which in tandem with the caffeine, makes skin appear firmer and tighter. For long-term anti-aging, Hyaluronic Acid helps Albumin get deeper into the skin to enhance collagen production.
The first time I applied it, I didn’t read the directions and failed to shake the bottle before use. This is actually pretty important because while my skin looked taut and luminous upon application my skin also felt sort of uncomfortably tight and… I smelled like a soybean. The second time I read the directions and experienced neither of these problems. But on dry down, which does take a few minutes, skin looks amazingly youthful: dewy, plump and luminous in a natural way, not a fake shimmer or shiny glow. So remember to SHAKE IT before use.
I applied it directly then my moisturizer, but it is concentrated, so consider adding it into your moisturizer. I experienced no irritation or uncomfortable tightness, there is no bad smell or stickiness. I offered it to my Mom to try and while she has very sensitive skin, she reported no problems and really loved it. Her skin did look smoother and softer with a nice subtle glow after just a few uses.
What is especially interesting about this product is it is truly and all natural product yet it contains some powerful ingredients in the form of multiple peptides. Being able to use this kind of ingredients around the eye makes for a great treatment to address the appearance of thin and deep wrinkles, smile lines, and to address lax appearing skin.
I would recommend this product, especially for those with sensitive skin.
