Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
Around 3 years ago, I had zero idea as to what a serum really is. The purpose of a serum was least acquainted with me. Gradually, I understood that there’s more to a basic skincare than a mere CTM routine. Let’s break the ice and understand the concept of serum. A serum is a liquid which is applied to the skin in order to cater several beneficial ingredients such as anti-oxidants. A serum is generally applied after toning and before moisturizing. When we cleanse our face, we devoid the skin of its natural oils and while the step of toner is the first step towards a hydrated skin, a serum is lighter than moisturizers. This means, that with each step of skincare, we are raising the bar for moisturization.

The serum comes in a white and green cuboid cardboard-box which has all the crucial information printed. The actual serum bottle is made up of glass and comes with a dropper applicator so that you can use the serum judiciously. I loved the fact that the brand stated all information on to the serum label as well, particularly in times when you throw away the outer cardboard box. That way, you still can look up for the price or manufacturing date. Serum bottle is quite compact and I believe you can travel with it owing to its size. If it can resist breakage on fall is still a question.
I love incorporating face packs and serums into my skincare because there’s no better investment within the world, then a good skincare. Since I avoid creams, only aforementioned products remain on to my skin for the longest time. And my expectations are quite basic, a clear skin, free from acne, freckles and pigmentation. When I first got this serum, I noticed that it has no fragrance at all. If you’d ask me, I would always say avoid products with fragrance in case you have a sensitive skin. The colour of the serum is pretty much transparent. It looks and feels like a water only. The consistency is super-lightweight and it gets absorbed into the skin quite quickly. It would suit all skin type but it will ideally works miraculously with a combination to oily skin because of the consistency. The serum leaves no stickiness at all but the skin immediately feels supple, hydrated and brightened. Since the serum is water-based and contains no oil, it can be accompanied with a foundation if you notice dryness after the application of foundation. Apart from this, you can use few drops to dilute your foundation and make it work like a BB cream. Till date, it has caused no breakouts on my skin and I’m pretty much a happy customer.
This serum is probably one of my HG products that I would love to order again and again. The price point of course does not fall under affordable but it’s quite decent considering the benefits it caters. It’s quite a task to find serums that are lightweight and this one does a great job. Team TGL definitely recommends it!
And that’s a wrap for today!
