I’m usually quite wary of trying new products on my skin, especially on my face. I’ve always had very sensitive and naturally oily skin. For this reason, I have never used face oils or serums for fear of them making my skin even oilier. However, when I read about Skinkissed Vitamin C serum, I was intrigued. I have to admit, I was slightly sceptical about using this product – it claims to be a “miracle in a bottle” that helps you to achieve “flawless and glowing skin” – isn’t that every girls dream?!
I am lucky in the sense that I have never suffered from acne, so I don’t have many scars from spots, however this product claims to help heal acne scarring too, as well as help reduce the signs of aging. Unfortunately, I can’t comment on those side of things.
Skinkissed Serum contains natural ingredients – the only one that I was slightly worried about was fish oil, as I was concerned it would make the serum smell fishy, but it really doesn’t! The directions recommend that you apply 10-15 drops on your fingertips before massaging into your face and neck, but I only use about 6 drops and find that is enough. You can also put this serum on your lips, but I haven’t tried that, as I prefer using a lip balm anyway.
The packaging of Skinkissed is a brown glass bottle, and the product is applied to the fingertips with a glass pipette. You get 20ml of product, which will last a while if used as directed. The serum is quite thick in consistency, definitely thicker than I had thought it would be. However, I haven’t used a face serum before, so I have nothing to compare it to.
I apply Skinkissed in the evening before going to bed. It goes on very smoothly and instantly makes my skin feel more hydrated. In the morning, my skin definitely feels smoother and softer too, and not at all greasy or oily. I’ve also used Skinkissed as a primer for my make up a couple of times, which has also worked well. In comparison to my usual primers, I would say it held my foundation in place just as well.I’ve been impressed with the Skinkissed serum, and it’s made me want to experiment with more face serums and oils. As for the claims that it’s a “miracle in a bottle”, I honestly can’t really say… I do definitely feel it has made my skin smoother and softer, though. You can purchase Skinkissed serum here.
Have you tried face serums or oils? Which ones are your favourite?
