Face Serum Glow Up: The afterglow of 2020!


Alright Y’all, spring is around the corner, which means it time to glow up. I mean besides the 2020 quarantine vibe that everyone is trying to get out of and the 2021 new year blaze that people want to take part in. The time is now, and what better way to get out of the funk you are in with glowing skin! I started getting interested in skincare last year when I was home-bound for 6 solid months, and honestly, it paid off. I learned some valuable skincare tips from YouTube videos such as “skincare with Hyram” and Susan Yara’s videos “Mixed Makeup”. Which went into detail on good products for your skin, and different skin types. Therefore, if you are really into learning more about how to take care of your skin, I highly recommend checking those videos out.

Through, for now, I am just going to talk about some products that I have used to help refine and even out my skin tone, which in turn, has given my skin a lovely glow and radiance. The first product is from Pacifica, it is their “Sea & C - vitamin C serum. This serum is a great morning boost for the skin. Besides the amazing sea blue color, this serum is light and hydrating. It is not overpowering at all and can be used on all skin types. I enjoy this serum because of the ingredients and how my skin looks and feels after I have applied it. The three main ingredients are (Aqua, Glycerin, and 3-o-ethyl ascorbic acid (Vitamin C). This product retails for about $16 per bottle, and as far as I can tell will last you about 3-4 months, depending on if you use it everyday day and night. Vitamin C is a serum that everyone should use on their face, and if you want dewy/glowing skin, vitamin C is a must.

Now as a side note I do transition back and forth between vitamin C serums, lately, I have been using the Honest Beauty vitamin C serum called Vitamin C Radiance. It retails for $27.99, which is on the pricier side compared to the Pacifica brand, but it is worth it. As the ingredients are well cultivated and the serum properties are greatly beneficial for the skin, as I have talked about in one of my previous posts, The Honest Truth.


Next up we have the “Peach and Lily glass skin face serum”. This serum is meant for refining and firming the skin. This product leaves your skin feeling refreshed and glowing, the perfect serum if you want your skin looking Sunkissed. I have been using this product for about three months now and love it. The main reason I love this product is based on the ingredients. It is a mix of niacinamide, East Asian mountain yam, madecassoside, peptides, and hyaluronic acid help to hydrate, calm, brighten the skin. Which as a result leaves the skin looking and feeling firmer with each use. The serum retails for $39 on the Peach and Lily site for a 40ml bottle, but at Ulta you can get the product in a travel size for $19 in 14.78ml. This serum does not need to be used every day; I recommend using 3-4 times a week. With this product, if you buy the 40ml version will last you around 3-4 months, just as the vitamin C serum does. If you want firm glistening skin that feels hydrated, I recommend trying this serum.

The last product I will be talking about today, (that will change your skin for the better) is The Ordinary hyaluronic acid serum. This serum is good for helping clear dark spots on the face and evening out skin color. As some people have a bit of discoloration in the skin, this merchandise helps clear that up, and gives the skin a refined and smooth look and feel. Besides the 2% hyaluronic acid, this serum also has B5 as one of the main ingredients. Another thing to note about this product is that it does not contain alcohol, gluten, nuts, oil, silicone, parabens, or sulfurs and is vegan and cruelty-free. The product retails for $6.80 at ultra and the ordinary site. It is a cheaper product that will not break the bank, but the benefits are great for the skin.
