Lately I have been trying a new serum from a brand called S5 :) You probably noticed that I am moving more towards natural cosmetics, especially when it comes to skincare. I feel that it is very important to reduce the amount of chemicals we apply on our faces, body and hair. This serum is a miracle product, trust me, I tried it!
S5 was designed to solve skin problems using the natural ingredients from 5 most extreme parts of the world like Antarctica, the Wadi Desert in Egypt and the high mountains of Tibet. The bioactives have naturally evolved strength and resilience to extreme environmental stress over millions of years. (S5 Website). These serums aim to protect the skin from the pollution, chemicals, UV and other environmental damage.
The replenish serum targets dry or scarred skin. Whilst I am not the person who has a lot o acne problems, I do get some occasional spots which then take forever to heal. My main skin concern is dry skin so this serum was perfect for me. It is 100% natural and 30% organic, so it does not contain any nasty additions. This serum targets dry and damaged skin with desert bioactves & omega 3, 5, 6, 7 & 9 to reduce redness, blemishes and premature ageing. It also aims to reduce stress on the skin, which helps the skin stay healthy, and reduces likelihood of sensitivity, redness, blemishes and premature ageing.
I applied this serum to my cleansed face with my hands, massaged it in and left it on for 10 minutes. I then followed with a moisturiser. I like to apply serums first and give them a few minutes to work on my face. When it sinks in I add moisturiser to keep my face hydrated throughout the day or night. You can also mix this serum with your cream and just applying both products at the same time.
What I thought
I love this serum, it has an oily texture yet it sinks in very quickly and you only need a few drops, meaning it is very efficient. It has a sweet, natural smell which makes your beauty routine even more enjoyable. After using this serum my skin improved a lot, it was moisturised, brighter and the scars started to fade. The thing I like the most however, is that it is organic and natural. You can mix the serum with other S5 serums depending on what you need. So check out the S5 website for more info!
