Valjean Labs Restore Facial Serum

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Valjean Labs Restore Facial Serum with Niacinamide and Zinc.

This serum promises to purify and to calm stressed and blemish-prone skin.

You’re supposed to use a few drops of serum – on its own or under moisturiser.

I use this serum twice a day – right after I’ve cleansed my face. I use it in combination with a face mist. I like to use serums and oils with face mist as the mist “stretches” the serum or oil (i.e. heavy oils become easier to use), and the oil or serum can “lock in” some extra hydration.

I’ve been using this product for about 4 few weeks now, and I think it’s alright. It’s not moisturising enough to be used on its own, but that’s OK for me since I use other products with it.

And I would agree that the serum has a calming effect. It’s exactly what I need at the moment since my skin has been rather awful lately (work is… incredibly stressful right now).

Valjean Labs Restore Facial Serum is available as 54ml. I paid £6 (TK Maxx). Considering the low price and the decent quality, I’d recommend this product.
