This trio has been getting a lot of love and attention from me, one old, one new and one relatively new…
Skinceuticals HA Intensifier, this is crazy good. Firstly on a very shallow note, I’m obsessed with its colour. I layer this with other serum such as lighter hydration serum or an antioxidant serum. This goes on top and helps with very fine lines. Formulated with 2% Licorice root, 1.3% Hyaluronic Acid and 0.2% Purple Rice (which gives it beautiful hue). When used standalone doesn’t seem to perform the same way, but layered with another serum it kicks arse. I particularly like this near fine lines near my eye and lips. In fact apply on my lips and seal with Nuxe reve de miel. Certainly on the pricier side but most effect/impact is seen after layering or when I’ve big night out and next morning screams.
Skinbetter Intensive Treatment Lines (I believe it has been renamed), but this is another major magic juice in small container. As SkinBetter’s reputation goes, its yet to disappoint me, however this light cream fills fine lines and plumps the face like absolutely nothing. Long flight and big night out regulars (that’s me), next morning no one would ever guess what I’ve been up to. The effect is almost instant and love layering under makeup. It truly moisturizes and plumps the skin. On my skin it feels like someone injected Hyaluronic acid in my skin.
AmorePacific Essential Crème Fluid, this had me completely fooled on inci list alone. This is a classic instance where performance exceeds what you see on inci list. Basically with a consistency of a light milky lotion and performance of a proper hydrating and nourishing cream. I’m so ridiculously sold on this expensive bottle, this will be a repeat for me. Claims
Instantly absorbs in skin, but leaving it immediately hydrated and plump. Thankfully no sticky residue on top. This lotion paired with Skinceuticals does wonders. Apparently, each bottle contains 150 baby green tea leaves handpicked from AmorePacific’s green tea gardens, sounds luxurious to me. On nights when im looking for more oomph to the formula, I mix with an oil or balm and the formula blends so well. Skin is happy, juicy and bouncy.
