Not Quite Right

How much do I love the Zelens Skin Science packaging? The green glass, silver and black makes me want to decorate the bathroom so it’ll match the range. It is pretty but modern; just lush.

I’ve been testing the Advanced Luminescence Serum which claims to reduce the appearance of dark spots and prevent discolouration, brighten and even skin tone, refine texture and ‘enhance vitality’ (whatever that means??).

I do like this serum as it does seem to be lightening my acne scars very slightly and slowly. It is fair to say that it works, though I’m not sure it would do much more than a really fantastic exfoliator.

My gripe with the product is it’s cost. If you read BG regularly then you’ll know that I am not adverse to recommending expensive products if I think they are well worth the money. Whilst Zelens does the trick I am need to use quite a bit of it to get an even spread across my face. This means that after little over a week I am a quarter of the way through the bottle.

At £85 a bottle, I think it is just too much for me to justify spending that much every month. If Zelens manage to get a more liquid consistency which can be spread more easily, or if they lower the price, then I would be giving this a big thumbs up. I suppose it’s the price you pay for beautiful packaging…

Smooth Criminal

I just had to tell you all about Smooth-365 because well, it is fabulouso. This lightweight serum smoothes away dry, rough skin whilst magically toning down the look of wrinkles and blemishes.

What I really love about this serum is it has quick fix results – the first application saw my skin turn from drab to glowing; it was as if someone had put a soft focus on my face. Spots, scars and creases seemed somehow less noticeable and my skin looked the healthiest it has been for years.

The serum is oil free and has a lovely velvet texture which makes the skin feel ultra smooth and sleek. It is not all about living in the moment though. With continued use the peptides housed within the gloop go to work; collagen production is pumped up and wrinkles are lessened.

 This will make a great primer for make-up as not only does it give a fresh and flawless base but it binds moisture to the skin so foundation glides on and stays put.

Get it now for an even complexion by New Year. Use it before parties for foundation staying power!

Guardian Angel

I do love a good face serum. There seems to be a serum for every possible need; acne healing, glow giving, anti-aging. My favourite serums protect the skin from external aggressors; working to prevent dehydration, dirt and oxidisation from settling in. After all, prevention is better than cure.

A Perfect World White Tea Skin Guardian from Origins is one such marvel. Using silver tip white tea, a potent anti-oxidant, the creamy gel-like lotion forms a bubble around the skin which stops nasties like pollution from attacking. It’s a perfect choice for people in their early twenties as it has anti-aging benefits; meaning it prevents aging rather than trying to reverse its effects.

As if that wasn’t good enough, Skin Guardian makes your face unbelievably velvety and smooth; a perfect base for make-up.

Take Action

I was a lucky enough lady to receive Action Sublime Serum from Comfort Zone through the post today and my first impressions of this gel-like lotion are tip-top. It is a brand that I wasn’t aware of until noon today when it landed on my doorstep, and I wasn’t expecting much. Comfort Zone is an Italian make and are, according to my catalogue, the products are “conceived according to an innovative, contemporary spa approach to skincare”.

Sounds good, right? Well it is. The serum contains loads of lovely hyaluronic acid, which sounds super scary but actually binds moisture to the skin and is wonderful for those dry days. Like so many people these days, I spend most of my day in front of a computer which leaves my skin a bit, well… dull and drab. Today, I’ve been smoothing this across my dehydrated and tired out skin and it has given me an instant pick me up. I’ve also found that it allows my makeup to go on really smoothly.

The real treat of this serum is that, unlike a lot of serums which are very heavy or oily, it is light and sinks into skin easily making it fab for younger skin trying to resist the ageing process. Fingers crossed it’ll keep up the good work. I’ll keep you updated.

Comfort Zone Action Sublime Serum retails at a whopping £85.95 – will it be worth all that moolah?
