Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Capsules Review

Pros:

Makes my skin flawless already after one use.

Cons:

The cost of around 1,5 dollar per capsule is pretty heavy.

More:

I have been using these capsules from Elizabeth Arden on and off for a few years, mostly after long distance flights to rehydrate my skin and sometimes on a weekday when I really feel like the day has been to boring and I need a nice goodnight. You are supposed to use them daily as a serum, which I think is pretty over the top since they cost around 1,5 dollars each – which is over my budget at least. The price can be discussed, and also the fact that a “package” contains more then needed per use, making you neck happy or just putting saving some away in a plastic bag are two uncomfortable options.

What is the result then? It is pretty much a big WOW – at least for me. I always feel that my skin looks luminous and smooth and pretty spotless when waking up after using this serum the previous night. It is very silky and feel very nice on. It is a great treat, though would not incorporate it into my daily routine since it would kill my budget.

Soap and Glory Make Yourself Youthful Rejuvenating Facial Serum Review

Pros:

Makes my skin very smooth and hydrates very well.

Cons:

The price.

More:

Ever since falling in love with my first serum I have been a devotee to the serum cult. I can‘t imagine my skin care routine without it. Since I rarely stay faithful to a beauty product I like to shop around – always looking for the next fantastic product which will take my skin to the new level. Sometimes I get pissed and robbed, and sometimes I just hit jackpot. This time it was jackpot. This serum is in the high end but I still consider it reasonably priced, especially since a bottle lasts for ages. The pump bottle is hygienic, which is important for a germ scared person like myself. But most importantly this serum leaves my skin feeling very smooth and hydrated. It gives my skin what I call, the full “serum effect” – which is leaving my skin flawless. I have been working 14 days in a row now, and heavenly relied on a lot of cheeseburgers to keep my spirit up (ate one for breakfast this morning, seriously bad start to the day), and yet my skin looks like I just had a facial and 14 hours of sleep (unfortunately the dark rings give me away). Thank you dear serum couldn‘t have made these 2 weeks without you!

Review of Emma S Sensitive Facial Oil Serum

EMMAe_0036-SensitiveFacialOilSerum1-470x627

Pros:

This is the first facial oil I can use without getting pimples or my skin starting to itch.

Cons:

A bit pricey and small bottle.

 More:

Emma S is a Swedish brand, whose products I have reviewed before, which was started by supermodel Emma S Wiklund. I really like the idea of using products from small brands with strong ideas and ethics rather then the multi-billion dollar cooperations who already made enough money, and therefore I get extremely excited when finding a brilliant product made with love and strong beliefs.

I love oils and I love serums, so this is a great combination for me, especially since its specifically made for sensitive skin. Because despite my love of oils my skin can not handle them, and I tend to break out or get blackheads after just a few days of use. Since oils are so hyped, I keep on trying my luck (yes im one of those people who purchase things after reading about them in a magazine) and getting disappointed.

The serum oil has a nice silky feeling, is perfume free, sinks in fast and works well with my regular cream (does not get sticky or takes ages to sink in). I started using it at the end of the summer, when my skin was hydrated, and it still blended in well without causing the usual pimples my skin is prone to when getting over-hydrated or when I use oil. The best part is that I can really see an instant result on my skin when using it, I wake up with smoother and more radiant looking skin. The minuses are that the bottle is 30 ml making the product a bit pricy.
