I complain often about my dry skin. I get patches of flakey skin on my chin and the sides of my nose, my face can feel dry and tight just a few hours after my morning routine, and when it’s particularly bad it just looks dull. But it being dry is just one part of the problem. It’s also dehydrated, and a lot of the time that’s the worst offender.
In order to combat this irritating combination I tend to layer. A LOT. When it comes to lighter layers my skin absorbs. And absorbs. And absorbs. Because of this I’m always thrilled to find a product that is a wonderful hydrator with some richness to it.
The @drroebucks ultimate hydrating serum contains their own CNYouth molecule base which is made up of vitamin b3 (niacinamide!), vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, ubiquinone (to firm skin and reduce fine lines), and aloe vera. The claims that this serum makes are...it plumps and hydrates your skin! You know what’s nice to see? A bit of honesty in advertising. They’re not promising to make me look immortally 18 (God’s I was strong then!), or give me that creepy face blur look, or make my second born listen to me when I yell that she may NOT run into the street to pick up that interesting looking acorn.
The serum manages to be both light and rich. It’s a thicker texture with a bit of a yellow tinge. It has a light herbal and citrus fragrance that is rather pleasant. I used slightly less then a dropper full each night, though I probably could have gotten away with less. It absorbs quickly and left a nice silky finish.
I’ve actually used up this entire bottle, so I’d say I was testing it for...6 weeks? 8? It’s been awhile (I’m clearly very late on posting this review). I found this did a wonderful job of being a medium weight hydrator, really did add some bounce to my skin, and was overall a really pleasant product to use.
This was a PR gift sent to me by the company, so the question is, would I purchase this myself? My only hesitation is the price. This retails at @sephora for $59 for 30ml and that is a bit past the upper end of what I would usually pay for a product like this. However! This is why sales exist. I would purchase this, and others from the brand, were they on sale
