This is my review of the Skinkissed vitamin C serum.
Firstly I would like to point out that I was sent this product to review, however I will ALWAYS give my honest thoughts and opinions on a product.
I have had this product for a while now and like with any review I like to give the product a good try before casting my opinions. This product arrived just as my skin had a hissy fit so it was really a good time to test whether it would help or hinder my skin.
This is a vitamin C serum with Hyaluronic acid and collagen, the 3 things I love in my skincare products. Now that its winter (and I am 37) I like to add products under my moisturiser so I was really excited to try this, I have used similar things in the past so I wanted to see how this one compared.
The serum is packaged in a dark brown glass bottle with a pipette on the top for dispensing the product. The label on the front displays the name, ingredients, directions of use, product features, caution, quantity of product and company details. It contains 20ml of product and retails for £39.95
What it claims
“Skinkissed serum is designed to remove acne and help reduce signs of ageing. It has the ability to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, whilst hydrating and leaving your skin with a natural glow”
My first impressions
As I looked at the label of the bottle I noticed it had highlighted any allergens and as it contains marine collagen, in bold letters it said FISH, now it definitely wasn’t a concern for me from an allergy point of you, but like many of you my instant thought was I really don’t want to cover my face in something that smells of fish! So I was quick to remove the lid and have a good sniff….and no fishy smell so we are good to go.
The instructions say to add 3 – 5 drops I must admit I put about 5-10 on, it has a slight smell, it’s not bad but not the most pleasant, it doesn’t linger at all so its not an issue for me.
The texture has a slight stickiness and at first I thought hmm I might not like this but it didn’t stay sticky and once I added my normal moisturiser there was absolutely no sticky feeling remaining.
What it did for my skin
So a bit of background I’ve always had pretty clear skin, as I have got older pigmentation has appeared and obviously fine lines, both due to age and also dehydration.
However as I said earlier, a day or two before this product arrived I don’t know what on earth was going on but I developed about 10 – want to say spots but they never formed a head – big, hard, red, super sore lumps on my face they were around my chin and jaw and on my temples, they were so sore it was uncomfortable lying on my side to sleep.
Nothing in my skincare had changed so when this product arrived I added it in to my routine and thought my skin couldn’t get much worse.
I applied it under my normal moisturiser day and night and was pretty amazed at the results, the next day the lumps were less red and sore and within a few days they were practically gone, I’ve used the product since I got it and my skin has returned to normal. I’ve also noticed a slight reduction in the pigmentation on my cheeks and my skin feels soft and supple.
