As you might remember from my Five Minute Face, I use Neutrogena for a good amount of my skin care regiment. The lotion, facewash and facial scrub are all my drugstore favorites. Although I am happy with the results, I have noticed in the last year or so a few lines and creases that weren't there before. I suppose they had to arrive sometime. Sigh.
I have a few close friends who are in the business of all things "skin and beauty". The one tip they all give is Serum...citing it a magical potion that decreases wrinkles, age spots and overall firmness of skin. Infact, as soon as I turned thirty, they all advised me to add it to my daily routine. They have given me samples here and there...but nothing really stuck. In the past few months I have been researching serums....so many of them are pricey...it is hard to just "take a chance" on one. So imagine the perfect timing when I was invited to join in the 10 Days of Beauty Challenge with the revolutionary brand Algenist.
Reconstructing Serum to try and review for all of you. I have been using the serum since Thursday applying it at night after washing my face. The first two days were a little drying on my skin. Nothing harsh or painful, just slightly dryer than normal....which in all fairness, could also have to do with the weather. By day three I was noticing and feeling a difference. Nothing drastic...certainly not in three days....but my skin feels smooth and I swear my under eye area looks better.....I am excited....to see something that might be working. You can read about their specific findings in more detail here.
If you are anything like me, you might be weary of spending $95 on a small bottle of serum (bottle would probably last 2 months). In the same breath, if something would diminish the appearance of the wrinkles and age spots that are starting to pop up...$95 sounds like a drop in the bucket.
