Serum is a product that I've been only using for less than a year but with all of the ones I've tried I noticed a difference in my skin so it became a must-have product in my skincare routine. So when I run out of my amazing Avene Soothing serum I made my research for the replacement. Originally I thought of repurchasing the Avene one but decided to pick something that will tackle my main skin concerns: large pores and uneven skin tone. I have some pigmentation on my face that started looking darker after a few days in the sun without high SPF on ( I know, naughty me) and it really bothered me and was very hard to cover with make up without making it to look too heavy. I knew I had to find a good product that will help me correct my skin tone. There is a lovely serum from Lancôme called Vissionaire but is way out of my budget so I started looking into more purse friendly options. After doing my online research I decided to get the Vichy Idealia Life Serum which has great reviews and sounds like something it would be beneficial to my skin. And then before I purchased it I saw in Boots an offer on all Skin Perfection products from L'Oreal and Advanced Correcting Serum landed in my basket.
L'Oreal Skin Perfection Advanced Correcting Serum (RRP £16.99) contains patented LR2412 ingredient which is proved to improve skin's appearance and the same that Vichy and Lancôme serums have. Obviously L'Oreal offering is a cheaper version so it has to be less concentrated but we are still getting the good guy, right?
L'Oreal serum contains also Perline-P which helps to tighten pores, refine skin texture and even skin tone. All these claims are all what I'm looking for in a skincare so I was very excited to start using the serum.
It has a very light texture with almost pearlescent finish, it sinks into the skin immediately leaving it silky smooth and lightly glowing. It has a light, fresh scent which add to the pleasure of using it.
It feels also very moisturising and many times I skipped the moisturiser and my skin still felt comfortable, bare in mind that my skin is combination/oily, but if your skin is dry you will probably need moisturiser on top. The pretty pink, glass bottle has build in pump which is perfect for hygienic reasons and I tend to use one and half pump to apply the serum to my face and neck.
I've been using this serum for over 6 weeks now, only in the mornings and I absolutely love it and I think it's a fantastic product for people with similar skin concerns as mine. Firstly, the darker patches on my face faded significantly and my skin tone is definitely more even which makes me really happy. I'm not sure if my pores are smaller but they do appear slightly more tightened and my skin is less oily which is actually unexpected bonus. The texture of my skin also has improved and is smoother and less bumpy. Obviously I still don't have the perfect skin but it looks much better than it did 6 weeks ago so I'm really impressed by this serum and I'm planning on buying the corresponding day cream.
If you are looking for a great serum without the big price tag, L'Oreal Skin Perfection Advanced Correcting Serum is well worth trying in my opinion and I highly recommend it.
