Serum Staples

Hey guys,

A few weeks ago I mentioned I was trying a new face product, the Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum. I was originally using the Ole Henriksen Truth Serum and decided I wanted to try something new. It’s always more fun to try a new product than to keep buying the same old thing. I also picked up the Origins Plantscription Anti-Aging Eye Treatment because i’m started to get some a few wrinkles around my eyes…womp womp.

Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum – I really like this product because it’s so light but extremely moisturizing. I have a dry face usually, and I can put this on and don’t even have to follow up with a moisturizer. It also made my skin very soft. One of the claims of the product is that it brightens and evens skin tone. I can’t say I have seen that result, though I have seen reviews where people say they have. The price tag on this product is really too much for me to purchase it again. I was willing to do so the first time because I was trading in another product for it and also had a coupon, so I will probably try out a new product when I run out.

Ole Henriksen Truth Serum – I wanted to bring up this product again because it’s the best serum I have tried so far. Even when I’m trying out new ones, I tend to rotate it in with the other product after I finish the initial testing of the new product. While it’s not quite as moisturizing as the Caudalie serum, it does an incredible job brightening. This is a product that I will always keep on hand, and the price is better than the Caudalie as well.

Origins Plantscription Anti-aging eye cream – I wanted to be blown away by this product, but in truth it is just mediocre. I am starting to see wrinkles around by eyes, and I haven’t seen a big difference in them since using this product. At best they are smoothed out slightly, and I will say the skin around by eyes has been softer and more hydrated since using it. Even though this is just a little pot, it lasts forever. I’m going to continue to use it but will be trying a new brand once it runs out. I also received a deluxe sample of the Dr. Brandt Needs No More cream, so I will be trying that out and reviewing it soon!
