07 Apr Review, Ingredients, Before/After Photos: Perricone MD Cosmeceuticals Chia Serum, Vitamin C Ester
Experiencing uneven skintone, discoloration or age spots? Perricone MD Cosmeceuticals has launched Vitamin C Ester Serum ($98.00) formulated to deliver the brightness and clarity of youthful looking skin. Over a seven day period one is supposed to see visible results, and, over time, even stronger results.
I am a proponent for new sciences and technologies leading us into a direction of more powerful skincare products (as I am not ready for fillers, Botox, etc.).
This serum was designed for your face, eyes and lips — it instantly gives one a luminous glow and brighter looking skin. Over time, this serum is said to minimize fine lines, smooth crow’s feet and brighten dark circles.
It also smells delicious (citrus-like) and, once dried, has a lingering, soft scent compared to its initial application. Serums with cosmeceutical-strength ingredients (like these) are to be used over time, as they are not meant to “cover” your skin or act as a “band-aid” for the moment, but help to actually repair the skin with ingredients such as vitamin C ester — known for its brightening effects and also sodium hyaluronate — helps hydrate as well.
There are also potent antioxidants the formula, and 91% of consumers studied said their skin appeared less dull and weathered after four weeks of use. 80% saw a visible reduction in vertical lip lines, under eye circles and crow’s feet. That alone tells me I should use it and report back in a month! Crow’s feet and fine lines are my challenge, as well as dark circles underneath my eyes!
If you have dry, dull, fatigued or lackluster skin, Chia Serum ($75.00) from Perricone MD Cosmeceuticals is meant for you! This product had me on the phone with my holistic and delicious mom, as she had been telling me to eat chia seeds for years. Now, I can wear them!
Chia Serum is a multi-tasking serum with rare extracts of chia seed oil and fat soluble vitamins that were scientifically formulated to rapidly transform dull, dry skin into a visibly vibrant, glowing and more hydrated complexion. Chia seed oil, friends! It’s known to be one of the richest vegetable sources of omega 3 fatty acids, which we believe are crucial in protecting the skin from environmental stress that accelerate the signs of aging.
I still must learn to eat the seeds, yet I am intrigued with the idea of putting the serum on my face. It absorbs rather quickly into the skin and does not leave a greasy nor oily feel. It made my skin feel so soft and smooth!
What’s interesting is that this oil can be applied directly to the skin, over a targeted treatment OR mixed with your favorite moisturizer. Multitasking products always seem most practical for my routine, as I get ready fairly quickly each morning.
By using either product alone or together, you will see results. These products were made to create healthier skin. Great luck in your skincare journey! Remember, it’s the only skin you have!
