The It’s skin Power 10 serums have been on the market for ages, but only recently they have gained popularity.
The formula of this product is a hybrid of hydrating and brightening ingredients. The hydrating ones are good, old glycerine and the increasingly sought-after polyglutamic acid. It is similar to hyaluronic acid, but polyglutamic acid, unlike HA, creates a barrier that stops epidermal water loss, so you don’t need to seal it in with an occlusive product. The brightening ingredients are arbutin, the type is unknown, and liquorice root extract. There’s also skin-soothing camomile extract. The formula includes fragrance, but it’s undetectable during use.
I bought to phials of this serum last year. Does it brighten skin? Not really. I’ve tested it on my beard area to fade redness left by folliculitis, but it hasn’t done much. I’ve tried it on the back of my neck, and I couldn’t see any difference either. It is an affordable hydrating serum. I think this product could work well as an all-in-one product for summer, something to apply before sunscreen. It’s light-weight and absorbs quickly, and the plant extracts will give an anti-oxidant boost. It’s a simple, hydrating product, suitable for all skin types, but don’t expect an extreme brightening effect.
While you’re here, I want to ask all of you a favour. I am petitioning for a ban on sunbeds in the EU; the Petitions Committee approved my petition last Friday, and it’s now available to supporters. I would love it if you could support my petition on the EU’s petitions website – here. Unfortunately, you have to register on the EU’s petitions website – I know it’s a dealbreaker for many people, so it’s ok if you don’t want to. Also, you don’t have to be an EU citizen/resident to register. If you have any questions regarding my petition or the registration process, please do not hesitate to ask; you can contact me via email, Instagram, and Weibo. I really appreciate any help you can provide.
