We all want blemish free, youthful, smooth, hydrated, glowing skin am I right?? That’s exactly why the skincare industry is so big. Within an ocean of products claiming to be your one magic cure, it can be very difficult and frustrating to find something that works. That’s why people like me, and of course other beauty bloggers out there want to try products and give you as much information as possible and give you honest feedback with posts like I’m bringing you today. I’m reviewing a serum that promises all the above.
*Generation Skincare’s Facial Serum contains all natural ingredients including Vitamins B, C and E, Green Tea and Aloe Vera (which is rich in Vitamins C and E), Green Tea and Hyaluronic Acid. We know Vitamin C is great for our health but is it really good for our skin too?? The answer, quite simply is yes, Vitamin C helps to rejuvenate the skin and fights the signs of ageing. It also promotes the production of Collagen, while the Hyaluronic Acid helps to keep your skin hydrated.
Generation Skincare’s Serum will benefit people of all ages and skin types, which makes it an essential in your beauty routine. It is more concentrated than a cream which ensures maximum results and is 8-10x times more effective than taking Vitamin C orally. It has so many benefits including protection from sun damage, reduction in under eye circles, hydration and of course its anti-ageing properties!
The addition of Vitamin E is great for acne scarring as well as tissue repair whilst the Vitamin B improves elasticity, eases redness and irritations and nourishes. It is also a great way of preventing stretch marks, which occur through weight loss and pregnancy. Aloe Vera is well-known to be soothing as well as moisturising and Green Tea is good for detoxifying and is anti-inflammatory. It’s also Vegan friendly and of course Cruelty Free.
It comes packaged in a 30ml dark brown tinted glass bottle which is ideal to help prevent the product from spoiling quickly. It has an orange sticker on the bottle with product information and the screw cap lid contains a pipette dropper for application.
To use, apply 3-5 drops of the serum to dry, clean skin before you put any moisturiser on. Massage the serum into the skin and allow to sink in before following up with your regular moisturiser or night cream. It can be used twice a day, morning and night.
It’s quite a thick liquid but it’s really easy to work with, it does absorb into the skin fairly quickly so you’ll have to find what’s the best way to apply it for yourself. I like to massage it into my face in sections and working my way up. The scent is really nice and makes this product so much nicer to use, it’s Sweet Orange oil that gives this it’s lovely smell. I’ve been using this now for just over 3 weeks and i have to say the first couple of times I used it, it made my skin tingle but in a good way. You know the product is really working. It says this serum takes 7-10 days before you can see any results but i have to say after 3 days I started to notice the difference in my skin.
Overall I’m pretty happy with this little serum, I didn’t think I’d enjoy using it and that I wouldn’t be able to see a difference. It is suitable for all skin types. I have oily/combination skin and it makes my skin feel smooth and firm afterwards. This would also be great for mature skin.
If you apply too much then it can leave the skin feeling kind of sticky, so only apply as much as you need and steer clear of applying extra for the sake of it. The bottle does say that you can use it anywhere else that you want to, such as the lips. I haven’t tried it on my lips, but I will be giving it a go on my stretch marks to see if it can make a difference.
If you want to try out the Generation Vitamin C Serum you can get your hands on it from Amazon.
Have you tried this before?? Do you think you will try it??
