It comes in an expensive-looking heavy glass bottle and a metal cap with pipette attached to it. I like how sleek and luxurious Skinesis packaging looks and feels. The pipette picks up the right amount of product so you don’t have to worry about the rest of the serum oxidizing and going to waste. But here’s a catch – because of serum’s thickness it sometimes get stuck into the tube which is somewhat bothering. Apart from that I love the packaging, and the fact that it is hygienic.
TEXTURE, COLOR, SMELL
It is a slightly yellowish serum that absorbs so well into the skin and leaves very minimal residue. I can smell lightly of sugarcane and pears in it (may be some hint of mature rose fragrance?) but it gets a bit sour if you leave it on skin longer without absorbing it quickly (may be due to oxidation?).
I have tried this serum on and off to get rid of dry, darkened, dull skin and I have to say it delivers what it says. It is very gentle, doesn’t cause any irritation like some chemical exfoliants do, is easily-absorbed and my skin looks brighter, smoother and much better in texture with regular use. My only issue with this product is that it doesn’t do anything for congested/clogged pores as it claims to. So instead of wasting it on my face I use it for the dry, rough, dull skin on my hands, feet and neck mixed with and without a moisturizer/lotion. It also gets rid of bumps and ingrown hair, and is quite hydrating.
OVERALL IMPRESSION & RECOMMENDATION
If price is not an issue for you and you don’t have oily/acne-prone/congested skin this product will do great things for you.
PS: I really want to try other boosters from the range. Sarah explains how to use them in this video.
