Hello there! I’m sorry I’ve been mum on the blog and haven’t been posting up new reviews. I am in the middle of writing a midterm paper so all I have is cups of tea and the last of my sanity slipping away. In a way, posting this review is furthering my avoidance of writing my paper but I hope you all like what I have posted up.
Product: Acure Organics Seriously Firming Facial Serum, 1 oz./ 30 ml.
Ingredients: Safflower (high-oleic) Oil*, Sesame Seed Oil*, Pumpkin Seed Oil*, Borage Oil*, Argan Oil*, Sweet Orange Oil*, Cranberry Seed Oil*, Bulgarian Lavender Oil*, Fair Trade Certified Olive Oil*, Rosemary Oil*
‘Tis the season for facial oils! While I have accumulated a frighteningly large stash of facial oils just in time for the winter months, Acure Organics Seriously Firming Facial Serum is one facial oil that is reliable to fall back on. I purchased it for $20 USD but it retails around $22 to $23 USD in online shopping sites. The price of the serum is one factor that I was attracted to right away! The product is composed of very simple oils that are Certified Organic and one oil being Organic and Fair Trade. It’s a very practical facial serum. One of the standout features of the facial serum is the twist and lock head. I love that I can lock it and toss it into a makeup bag without fearing for oils leaking all over. Mind you, some oil does stay on the opening area so as long as you wipe it clean, it should be no problem!
After using it on days where my face feels tight and uncomfortable from being dry, I can say that it’s a very good facial serum. While the product says it can “reduce fine lines, imperfections and fades scars,” I don’t believe this to be a miracle product. I haven’t seen any of my acne scars faded from regular use of this facial serum. As for fine lines, I can’t they faded either. As a 20-something, I suppose this product has the ability to reduce the chances of getting fine lines, but I wouldn’t buy this product expressly for solving those problems.
Still, if you are looking for a reliable and no-nonsense facial serum with organic ingredients and no preservatives, the Seriously Firming Facial Serum is one for you. It doesn’t have strong fragrances at all. I find the Sweet Orange Oil and Lavender scents being cancelled out by the heaviness of the Rosemary and the Safflower oils. It’s a perfect serum for those sensitive to strong fragrances. This serum is definitely more moisturizing than some of the serums I have tried before. The picture of the serum in my hand depicts 2 pumps of facial oil, and it was perfect to saturate my entire face. For those with oilier complexions, one pump should do the job. The Seriously Firming Facial Serum is a must-purchase for those with dry skin and a budget in mind.
