WHAT IS IT?
This is a serum that is made by Elemis. It has got enzymes in it that can help to smooth the skin on your face by up to 91%, that is according to research that was done by Elemis and I think that number might be a little bit exaggerated but it is a very good serum and I am happy to have been sent a bottle to try so that I could review it for an Italian language magazine I write for.
HOW DO YOU USE IT?
It is hard to find people who agree about if you should use serum before or after moisturiser but Elemis say that this one should be used underneath your moisturiser after you have cleansed your face. You use a very small amount so that you get a thin layer of serum and it dries nearly instant so you do not have to wait before you can apply your moisturiser and foundation.
WHAT I THINK
I like to use many different serums because I think as long as you choose a brand that is well known for good skin care then they are going to be effective always. I have been disappointed only with serums that are cheap.
This one by Elemis is very pleasing to use because of how quick it dries and as soon as I have applied it my skin feels and looks smoother, I am happy about that because I wear make up every day and I like to get the best base that I can and when I use this serum my skin is so smooth that foundation is very easy to apply.
It does not have very much smell but it does smell fresh and pleasant.
I have used this serum for 3 weeks now and I use it twice every day and the effect on my skin is so good that I am going to buy a bottle for myself ready for when this one runs out because I would like to keep this smooth and soft feeling.
This is an anti ageing serum and I think skin that is more mature would benefit from the effects of it being so smoothing also. I am very happy with it and even when I do not wear make up I think my bare skin looks better after this serum has been applied.
A bottle that has got 50ml of serum in it costs about £40 and that is alot of money but it is value also because the bottle lasts for such a long time even if you use it twice every day.
5 Dooyoo Stars.
Yet again the qualities of Elemis skin care products shines through! Whilst I cannot ignore the fact that this products price label is 'gulp' worthy...it is a price I am prepared to swallow as it genuinely fulfils all my expectations.
With most 'serum' based products I am often disappointed with the residue and sticky or oily consistencies that my skin it left with; this product has none of the unpalatable after effects. This product packaging is well designed as it comes in a pump, which inevitably means that you manage to get the most out of the package without 30% left behind. Useful tip - store this bottle upside down when it is nearly finished; screw the top off to use the last of the product - waste not, want not especially at this price.
The texture of this serum is silky to the touch and it eases onto your skin without the tugging that inevitably happens with 'sticky serum - like products'. It absorbs easily into my skin and as with Elemis Tri - Enzyme Resurfacing Face Wash, I get results. My skin feels soft and plumped after using the serum; when used in conjunction other Elemis products of the same 'family' the result is skin that is well and truly pampered, supple and younger looking too! It definitely improves the texture of my skin and has helped improve the scarring that I have from having impetigo as a child - simply I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!
This product is truly worthy of a 5 star rating; if you haven't tried it you are missing out on a product that clearly lives up to its hype.
