What’s the best way to use it? How does it feel on skin?
Proper skin care routine should always begin with a good cleansing. Avalon Organics Intense Defense Cleansing Gel is a solution from the same line and using it it’s going to improve the performance of the serum. Plus, it’s always good for your skin to use products from the same cosmetic line.
The serum has a right consistency and it’s not runny. The pump dispenser works fine and you don’t need a big amount of the serum for your skin. You may include the serum in both of your AM and PM skin care routine on cleansed and dry skin.
Easy to use and to absorb, the serum is good value for the money. Additionally, it’s easy to store and to take when travelling. As for the smell, many out there really go for it, whereas some aren’t fancy about it. Therefore, we’re kind of sitting on the fence about this one.
Don’t forget about moisturizing your skin. Avalon Organics Vitamin C Renewal Crème is going to make the effects of the serum show even faster, while taking care of your skin too.
What do we like the most about it? Is there something we like less?
The serum is good for many things and we’ve shorted our pros to the following:
- It stimulates the cellular renewal
- It protects the skin against photo-aging
- It stops free radicals and sustains the collagen and elastin production in skin
- It addresses fine lines and sagginess, reducing their visibility
- It smooths out the acne scars and improves the skin tone
