Hello lovelies, I hope you are all keeping well. Welcome to my first blog post! Today’s review is about a serum that I have been LOVING, and is definitely a keeper in my skincare routine from now on.
10% Niacinamide + 1% zinc – Blemish & Pore Refining Serum – £6
As a rose gold lover, I adore this packaging! I think it’s aesthetically-pleasing and fun to use due to the pipette applicator, which allows you to squeeze out the perfect amount of product needed.
It is a robust product – and as a proud cat owner, I can advise that this product is cat-proof from being knocked off my dresser as they effort to find the comfiest spot to watch me get ready in the mornings… aww!
The serum formula is clear and applies on the face beautifully. The serum is also smell-less, which for my skin type (combination in the summer and more dry in the winter), is amazing because I find strong perfumed scents, can irritate my skin.
Appearance on skin:
I love this product and it is my second bottle because I adore the radiant glow it leaves on my skin. I apply a pea-size amount, day and night, as that is recommended to view the best results. I prefer to press the serum onto my skin as I believe it allows the product to work better into the skin and accentuate the dewy skin look. I could use this product alone, without having to apply moisturiser on top, but as we are coming into the winter months now, I prefer to add my moisturiser on top, around five minutes after the serum, so it has time to properly soak in.
I would also comment that this serum definitely helps to battle and reduce the progression of any blemishes. After applying onto any breakouts, I find that the targeted spot has reduced in size and redness, allowing me to feel more confident when not wearing makeup – especially when my cycle is about to begin!
I will be purchasing this product again, as my bottle is nearly out and I cannot recommend it enough to my blemish-prone friends out there!
- Affordable skincare product, that makes you feel like you have a boujee routine!
- Adorable packaging
- Notice results fast
- I was trying to rack my brain for a con, just to provide a fair and true review, but I could not suggest one for this product – it is a holy grail for me now!
