nice lightweight serum
-August 5, 2012
I'm an ARCONA fan but wanted to give this a try after loving some of the NUXE body products. It's a lightweight, almost gel-textured serum that is easy to apply and absorbs quickly. I have combination skin and find that in my oilier areas in the D.C. summer heat/humidity I really don't need any moisturizer after this serum + Elemis' Liquid Layer or ARCONA's SPF20 sunscreen. I suspect that in the drier winter months I'd need an additional moisturizer. As for this serum's effectiveness -- the jury's out. I'm 35 and am starting to see some fine lines on my forehead in particular, and this serum doesn't seem to be making them go away. On the other hand, they're not getting worse. So it must have some efficacity. The ingredients are quality ingredients although I'm unsure what percentage is vitamin C. So, although this serum is working fine and I do like its texture better than the ARCONA Vitamin C 20% serum because it's easier to apply and lighter in weight, I'll probably go back to ARCONA when this bottle is done.
