Dark Spot Correcting Glow Serum

product review positives
✨ This serum banks on key ingredients of 5% niacinamide, plant-derived squalane, and hippophae rhamnoides (sea buckthorn) fruit extract to reduce pigmentation and even out skintone while smoothing and moisturizing the skin. It also claims to boost moisture retention. ✨ This is a translucent watery gel, with an herby scent — not for the scentsitive but not a dealbreaker for me. It spreads easily, absorbs fast, and doesn’t pill when layered with other products. ✨ I like that this is 5% niacinamide as my skin has shown sensitivity to 10% niacinamide — I’ve gotten a nasty niacin flush from the cult fave niacinamide serum, and I also disliked the way it pilled when used with other products in my routine. This #axisy serum is gentle enough to use daily, even in the same routine as my actives. ✨ I’ve been using this all month in my night routine and I can say this works well in conjunction with my chemical exfoliators and retinol — PIH I’ve acquired while in quarantine are fading fast and my skintone is remarkably even despite the time I spend pottering around the garden in the sun. ✨ Also, this has squalane, one of my all-time hero ingredients, and even right after application I can already feel how moist and plump my skin is, and the effect carries over until the next time I reach for this serum. My moisture barrier has also remained intact, despite the fact that I’m using a BHA toner on top of my actives. ✨ I think this would work well across all skin types but I’d especially recommend this to people sensitive to high concentrations of niacinamide (me) ✨I have to mention the packaging: it’s a tube with a built in pump, which makes it easy and hygienic to dispense.
product review negatives
✨This retails around $20 for 50ml, slightly more than what I’d spend, but not prohibitive, and I’ll likely purchase it when a sale comes my way.
