Trying to focus a bit on this skincare hobby of mine to help distract my mind and pull me out of my rut, so I took this @skinbetter serum with me on my walk to work (this is a picture of a huge mural in the downtown skyway) and snapped some pics so I could enter the #harbenhousesummer giveaway (for a TNS essential Serum 😱 which I'd like to give my mom to test the effects ☺️)
Little background on the serum in the pic. I have wanted this antioxidant blend for SO Long (I found put about this product by reading a review by @talesofskincare 😘). And recently the lovely @refresh_byhilary surprised me by sending me this @skinbetter #altodefenseserum 😀 and I just started incorporating it into my routines. .
So what is it? In short, it is an antioxidant blend (with a pretty impressive of antioxidants, in my opinion). So the goal is to help PREVENT photoaging and damage from free radicals and oxidative stress (think: pollution, stress, lack of sleep, UV exposure, alcohol, etc) rather than TREAT current signs of aging. I always have a hard time reviewing and evaluating AOX serums because their goal isn't to immediately improve or treat the skin; instead, they are helping to prevent damage. So I tend to base my opinion off of: 1) Ingredients, 2) if it breaks me out, 3) how it layers and feels on my skin, 4) price per ounce in comparison to other serums, 5) any extra benefits (like added hydration). .
Because I have consistently used other antioxidant serums (like my Vitamin C serums) I'm not expecting a skin transformation, but I would like to think my skin has an extra layer of protection and is getting more resilient and healthy over time.
I'll report back on my experience with this once its been a couple months!
Also, today is the last day to enter @harbenhouse photo contest giveaway! If you have any product that HarbenHouse sells, post a pic! I tag @karmakarlie18 @honestlyskin @theskinstudy
