If you are looking for a new facial skin serum, I have 3 great ones for you to try. All 3 are highly effective, but won’t completely break the bank.
Juliette Armand Elements 03 Hyaluronic Acid Serum
This baby is packed with Hyaluronic acid which is known for enhancing skin moisture. If you have dry skin or you’re looking for a serum with a firming action, you want to look out for one containing Hyaluronic acid. A tiny bit of product is needed as the thick texture spreads very well. My skin sighs with relief when I apply this serum. My skin is left feeling soft and plump. So much so that I have forgotten to apply moisturiser afterwards on a few occasions. This serums is great for all skin types that needs a bit of extra moisture and I highly recommend it. R475 for 30ml. Visit Juliette Armand on Facebook to learn more about a brand that is quickly becoming one of my favourites.
skinPhD Pause Age Dermotox Serum
Dermotox is the one for you if you are looking for a serum to tighten, lift and decrease the visible signs of ageing. This serum uses latest technology ingredients that aid to reduce muscular contraction and regular use is said to decrease expression lines. In all honestly, I haven’t had a chance to use it religiously as many products land on my desk, but when I have used it my skin feels moisturised, tight and appears visibly smoother. I have been using a skinPhD moisturiser that I have been loving, and if that’s anything to go by, Dermotox is a winner. I hope to visit the skinPhD salon in Plattekloof soon, so keep your eyes peeled for more on this brand. Dermotox Serum retails for R495 for 50ml. Visit skinPhD HERE.
Kiehl’s Dermatologist Solutions ™ Precision Lifting & Pore-Tightening Concentrate
Oh Kiehl’s, you never cease to impress. Kiehl’s launched the Precision Lifting & Pore-Tightening Concentrate in September in SA and after reading the press release I couldn’t wait to try it. Scientific research showed that sagging skin can lead to enlarged pores. I am completely screwed then! I already have huge pores and now I hear that age is just making it worse. This is where Kiehl’s steps in to save the day. “To effectively address sagging skin and enlarged pores, we identified ingredients with strong dossiers to support skin’s elasticity, firmness and tonicity,” stated Dr. Geoff Genesky, Head of Kiehl’s Skincare Laboratory. “This led us to a formula that includes Micro-filtered Yeast Extract and Geranium Essential Oil.” This formula has clinically demonstrated to show improvement in skin firmness/tautness, a visible reduction in pore size, more defined facial contours and skin that is smoother and appears more lifted than before use. I need to use it for a longer period of time to comment on the state of my pores (which is a ‘saak van gebed’), but I can tell you that my skin definitely feels smoother and firmer. As with all Kiehl’s products, this serum is a pleasure to use and guaranteed to give results. R895 for 50ml.
PS Just a heads-up. Kiehl’s is opening a new store on Thursday the 26th November at 12:00 at the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town. The first 50 patrons will each receive a R500 gift voucher off of their first R1000 spent.
