As someone who has sensitive skin, which is easily irritated and also has a tendency for blemishes, I understand the struggle of finding the right facial serum. On top of that, my skin is quite oily, hence I often use cleansers and products that mattify the skin, which can further dehydrate it. With a combination like this, hydration is KEY and we often forget about it.
This is exactly what happened to me… In my attempts to get rid of the oil on my skin, I left it dehydrated, and I was looking for a product that would soothe and calm my skin, as well as give it moisture. After trying out a bunch of things, I finally came across Phyto Corrective Serum by SkinCeuticals a couple of months ago and, let me tell you, I have been using it daily since!
First of all, let’s talk a little bit about the brand itself… SkinCeuticals have a scientific approach to skincare. The brand creates their products based on extensive research, which are designed to keep the skin healthy on a deeper level. They are incredibly passionate and dedicated to their scientific research, research and innovation is at the core of their brands mission and they continue to pioneer next-generation products that will optimise the healthy look and beauty of the skin. It’s an award-winning American brand focused on damage prevention, repair and enhancement of the skin – many of their products are created with antioxidants at the core and is has become a very popular brand among beauty experts.
The product itself is an oil-free gel-like concentrate and it is suitable for all skin types. It is infused with botanical extracts such as thyme and cucumber, which have soothing properties. Moreover, it contains hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that attracts 1000 times its weight in water, making it an excellent moisturiser without clogging the pores, and mulberry extract for treating skin discolouration. All in all, a perfect combination for dehydrated, sensitive skin!
Personally, when I first started using the serum I was amazed at how soft and smooth my skin felt! But after going through a whole bottle of it, I now can definitely recommend it. My skin feels so much more hydrated from within, which is especially tough to maintain as the weather is changing. The serum also made my skin less angry-looking, it is looking healthier and calmer.
SkinCeuticals has become a part of my daily routine, I apply it to both face and neck before moisturiser. If you have skin like mine – oily, sensitive, prone to blemishes and even acne – I highly suggest checking the serum out. Trust me, your skin will feel softer than ever. On top of that, summer is around the corner and the product’s consistency is very lightweight, which is perfect for the hot season’s routine.
