Easily absorbed

Expensive and no real impact
Summary
This serum has a rather strange colour and a very light texture which absorbs well but there is also a strange scent (talcum sweat) which I find off putting. I've been using the serum under a moisturiser but unlike other serums I've not really found a great impact from it. Given the price there really should have been more impact.

I have tried a few serums recently this and the Clarins one spring to mind. I have had the Clarins one for soem time as I ended up with a few sample bottles through a magazine and also in store. This one I had but two samples in flat sachets so not really a long term trial.

It felt nice and I found it was absorbed quickly. I did apply moisturiser over it once it sunk in. I applied this then dried my hair then applied my moisturiser . My skin felt nice and well moisturised. It smelled nice and was cool and silky as I applied it.

I am not sure I would choose this over the other ones I have tried. I think it would depend on what was on offer as it is not better than others I have tried.

I find this tends to bead up when you apply foundation over it. I can't decide if its the fault of the serum or the foundation. Anyone had this happen?

I think I prefer Vichy's Lift-Activ C&P serum to this one. Unfortunately, C&P seems to have been discontinued.

Strongest points
A lovely fresh scent. A nourishing, creamy serum that leaves the skin feeling soft & soothed. Absorbs quickly. Great for my sensitive skin, and reduces facial redness.
Weakest points
Quite expensive.
Summary
A creamy serum that's great for sensitive skin and those prone to facial redness.
