|ESPA Optimal Skin ProSerum(*) – £48 for 30ml|
I’ve really got into skincare over the last 6 months, especially serums. Although usually quite pricey their worth their weight in gold. I have honestly fallen in love with ESPA’s serums. I’ve tried two now and they are both high up in my all-time favorites.
Optimal Skin ProSerum is EPSA’s latest offering, combing the strength and efficiency of a super serum and a face treatment to strengthen the skin on a cellular level. Using 99.9% natural ingredients, it helps work with and activate the skins natural agents Collagen, Ceramide and Hyaluronic Acid to get instant gratification and long-term benefits. ESPA claim this helps to brighten and even skin tone, enhance elasticity and protect against environmental aggressors that can lead to premature ageing and I have to agree.
Sometimes serums can be a bit heavy on your skin as they are so concentrated with skin goodness (okay so I’m no dermatologist), but this is extremely lightweight. You could use this morning or night after you cleanse you skin but before you moisturise, but I tend to use it at night as that’s when your skin repairs most efficiently. Using it for a month now I’ve seen a radical difference in my skin tone. On top of that, my skin has barely been effected by this sudden cold snap and the icy winds. Central heating is a massive player in drying out your skin too but my skins no where near dehydrated! Good old Sunflower Seed Extract. I can’t comment on the anti-ageing aspects because that’s for more of a long-term benefit but to name just a few of its magic ingredients, Rose Hip and Echium Oil, White Lupin Extract, and Patchouli Essential Oil, it cant do anything but keep any signs of aging at bay for a couple extra years at least!
Now I know £48 will make some people wince but you literally use 3 drops. A small vial has lasted me around 2 months so the full size will last you ages. Definitely value for money.
If you fancy getting your hands it its available on ESPA’s website, at ESPA spas and salons worldwide, Liberty and selected Harvey Nichols stores.
