Skinlab Revitalize & Hydrate Facial Serum

Hi there! Today’s post is about a skin care product that I’ve been using for about 4 weeks now – Skinlab Revitalize & Hydrate Facial Serum. This serum contains collagen, elastin, vitamin C, Moroccan rose oil, rose water, coconut water and shea butter. It promises to revitalise, hydrate, nourish, brighten, firm and tone the skin. Skinlab recommends the serum be used twice daily.

How do I use the product? I use the serum (2 pumps) right after I’ve sprayed my face with the wonderful B. Confident facial mist. Thanks to the facial mist, the serum is quickly and easily massaged into my skin (face and neck). At the same time, the serum locks in the extra hydration from the facial mist. Double score! Then I leave the serum alone for a few minutes before I apply my eye cream (at the moment it’s an eye gel) and my moisturiser.

How’s the product? I’ve been using this serum with a number of different face creams and lotions, and I think this serum works with all of them. I also think that my complexion looks more even and considerably (!) more radiant than usual. I have no doubt that it’s the serum that makes my skin look great because I don’t use any other new skin care products.

Having said this, I have to deduct imaginary points because this serum isn’t very hydrating. It’s fine when I use it in conjunction with the facial mist, but without it, the serum wouldn’t be hydrating enough for my very dry skin.

All in all, I am happy with the serum and with what it does for me. If you want a product that makes your complexion look more radiant and more even, I would definitely recommend it! Skinlab Revitalize & Hydrate Facial Serum is available as 30ml. I paid £5 (TK Maxx).
