Over the last eighteen months (with thanks to the beauty blogging world), I've really started to put together a skin care routine that works for me. Along the way, I've discovered some stand out products that really work for me: Alpha H Liquid Gold, Emma Hardie balm cleanser, Pixi Glow Tonic, and Hydraluron - can you tell I'm a Hirons fan? Recently I purchased the reformulated Advanced Night Repair, and damn, it's good.
First things first, I'm sure the majority of the blogging world has tried this by now, but I'm late to the party (as per). Secondly, I'm only twenty two. Although anti-aging is high up on my agenda, I'm more interested in preventative techniques, so I can't tell you how this works on fine lines etc. However, what I can say is that as a 'night treatment', this is a great serum. I've found that after consistent use, my skin now feels softer and smoother, and the redness in my cheeks is reduced. Recently, I've been feeling much better when I wake up in the morning, because from a glance in the mirror my skin is looking healthier and clearer, with a nice glow.
In terms of consistency, this serum has a thick, almost oil-like texture. It's the colour of honey, and has a mild but pleasant scent which isn't noticeable once applied. It easily absorbs in to the skin, and has a light formula. My skin doesn't feel at all greasy once I've used this, and currently it's giving me just the right amount of moisture on it's own - although once Winter really kicks in I might up the hydration by adding a layer of facial oil over the top. If you can, I'd definitely recommend grabbing a sample of this - it's worth the hype.
