Overall assessment: A very nice moisturizing serum, but be forewarned that it does contain shimmer which may not please everyone. While it is a lovely serum in its own right, it offers the perfect boost to my foundation.

i, too, have always loved perlier bath and body products :) i was not aware they made skincare products as well. this sounds lovely, especially how you are mixing it with foundation. mixing a serum with foundation is something i have never done, but i'll try it now! what really interests me is the light shimmer. i have found that foundations which contain shimmer tend to separate a bit over time and become more difficult to blend, so i have basically quit buying them. also, i do not always want shimmer in a foundation, sometimes i do and this sounds like a beneficial option. to be fair, i have a wide range of foundations because with rosacea, ever day is 'anything can happen' and i need a variety of coverage types available.ReplyDelete
from the ingredients list (i love, love, love that you do this!) it sounds like a a product my skin could tolerate. the price point is a bit high, but as you point out, it contains 1.6 oz rather than the standard 1 oz. i would love to get my hands on a sample before taking the big plunge.
thank you so much for bringing this to my attention :)
HI Cheryl! Me too, and in fact I definitely have a visceral reaction to their products. I remember coveting their bath and shower gels as a teenager, and it always felt so luxurious to use them. I think that their bath and body products are amazing! This is my first foray into their skincare line, and am really happy with it! Mixing serums or face oils with foundations is a great way to improve the texture of certain underperforming foundations, but also gives that extra boost to great foundations as well. I generally don't like to use foundations that come with shimmer (or HD particles) because I often find that they add too much for my taste. I definitely prefer to control the amount that I add (either with this serum or with liquid luminizers)-- so something like this is right up my alley! The price point is on the high side-- I would keep an eye out to see whether you can find it on sale. I would definitely try to get a sample, and/or track down a tester to play with it first. I'm so glad that you love that I include the ingredients-- I always want to know, and there are far too many people with ingredient sensitivities, allergies etc. therefore I think it's very important to always include them. :-)Delete
