Hello my dear Beauties,
One day not too long ago, I went out on an adventure looking for something exciting. Being the curious rebel that I am, I came back with a little secret purple bottle, filled with a magical youth potion. I was excited. After all, who wouldn’t want to look younger at our age? What have I stumbled upon, what is this magnificent sorcery?
You know my obsession for healthy skin, I have written about it time and time again. After being called “Salami Pizza Face” in high school for so many years due to my horrendous acne, I wasn’t going to take any chances. I started a happy-skin ritual in my 20s and never missed a day smearing something “helpful” on my face. I have very thin and sensitive skin, so finding anything that truly works for me was more difficult than the discovery of electricity!
Lately I have been reading and researching a lot about Hyaluronic Acid. As we get older, our skin cannot hold onto the moisture so well, therefore it needs this type of acid for the anti-aging effects to stay supple, hydrated, plump and wrinkle-free. That’s exactly why I love my new discovery.
My new purple “Magic Serum”, officially known as the H.A. Intensifier by SkinCeuticals corrects and amplifies the skin’s hyaluronic acid levels by 30%. I obtained a bottle a few weeks ago to try it out and write my honest opinion about it. For those who know me, I am a very tough critic and usually not many skin products survive my judging eye. I was very surprised that my snobby and arrogant skin loved this product and didn’t breakout in a thousand hideous pimples.
I prefer to use the serum at night, so the first evening I applied it, I was curious and excited about what would happen the next day. Usually with product tests, I wake up to a shiny pizza face, with extra cheese on it, smiling mischievously at me in the mirror. However this time, I woke up to a fresh, clean and bright face. I was really impressed that just overnight I already felt the firmness! I also applied the serum on my lips, and they felt thicker and more luscious the next day. My skin started glowing within a week. I saw the moisture come back and literally felt the happiness deep within the skin cells themselves.
Truth be told, I’m a real nerd and like to get to the bottom of things as to why and how they happen the way they do. Therefore after delving into the facts, I found out that the H.A. Intensifier is made out of these important ingredients: 10% Proxylane, which supports the skin’s hyaluronic acid levels to help improve the appearance of skin firmness. 2.0% Licorice Root Extract + 0.2% Purple Rice Extract that work together to help preserve hyaluronic acid content in skin. The last and most important ingredient is 1.3% Hyaluronic Acid, which provides long lasting hydration to improve the look and texture of skin.
These elements put together zap away the nasolabial folds, which are the unfriendly lines around the mouth that we all hate, crow’s feet and those nasty marionette lines that make one look like a wooden babbling doll. Don’t feel bad about it, we all have these annoying gravity vices that eventually get us all, however, we now have a purple galactic weapon to defeat these bullies!
I love that it’s really easy to use and is paraben and dye-free, which is ideal for all skin types. Easy to apply, once or twice daily, 4-6 drops to the palm of the hand and dab onto forehead, cheeks, chin, and neck. Don’t be shy darling, blend it in. And that’s it, easy as a piece of cake!
A few days ago I went to a magazine launch event and bumped into a girlfriend whom I haven’t seen in ages. She looked at me astonishingly and said, “Wow Galia, you look incredible. Your skin looks like porcelain! What did you do? Did you get anything done? Come on tell me!” I looked and smiled, knowing that the serum was really working! If friends notice a difference, then that’s a very good sign. I told her about the H.A. Intensifier and after 2 hours, the entire party heard about it.
So my dears, as you see, this serum is so powerful that it would even protect Superman against his evil Kryptonite! Action Hero SkinCeuticals H.A. Intensifier to the rescue. And rescue it did, my pimply skin. I’m very happy with this product and can highly recommend it because it has shown me more difference within a week than other products “tried” in a year.
I have added this purple sister to my SkinCeuticals family. Ever since I discovered this brand a year ago, I have completely changed my daily routine to include a range of their products. I will delve deeper into my SkinCeuticals daily routine in my next article.
By the way, if you are a fan of dermal fillers, then this hyaluronic acid serum works very well as part of a home skincare regimen after you get the fillers done. This is definitely a little rebel to try my darlings. You won’t regret it.
Available on the market from March 1st, 2017.
Many hugs and happy hyaluronic acid dreams,
