I think we can all agree we all want our skin to look the best and up until recently i quite a novice in terms of skincare but since reading great blogs like Man Face and Pampered Prince i have learnt a lot and found out that serums are really important to your skincare routine.
I have combination skin but i used to have really dry skin but it recently changed to which i was happy about but i have been getting more acne prone because of the oily skin so for a while i had been looking for something to keep everything in check and thats when i came across the S5 Skincare Purity Serum*. I was first told about it at a meet up in Glasgow with Chalk Beauty, S5 Skincare was not a brand i was familiar with but it gave me that light bulb moment of this might work on my skin.
S5 Skincare Purity Serum is what’s called an Organic Cosmeceutical, These were designed for skin concerns like blemishes, sensitivity, dryness, pigmentation and fine lines. They have been specifically designed to reprogramme skin from reactive to resilient by reducing skin immune over-responses to skin stresses such as free radicals, changes in environment, pollution, radiation, exposure to chemicals and unfriendly bacteria, which can cause skin chronic inflammation and skin problems.
The Serum contains all sorts of ingredients to help combat blemish prone skin such as Brazilian Picao Preto, Alpine Epilobium Fleisheri and 2% Salicylic Acid
I feel like ive found a great brand here because a lot of the skincare i’ve used ive never actually noticed a difference in my skin where as using the Purity Serum for the past month i’ve noticed i have less breakouts and my skin isn’t as oily and it just feels and looks better in general.
The texture of the serum is somewhere between a gel and a cream its quite strong in terms of smell its not a bad smell just an acquired smell
You would apply this after cleansing your skin then apply as needed then wait till it sinks in which will be quite fast thats what i love about this there is no stickyness or tackyness its gone then you apply your moisturiser on top of it
If you have oily blemish prone skin this serum could be of some use to you as it has worked great on my skin you can find the S5 Skincare Purity Serum at Selfridges in store or online at selfridges.com for £40 for 30ml or £15 for 10ml at s5skincare.com
