I adore this product... in fact I love everything I have tried from this brand. I use this in the evening alongside a retinol and it’s completely rescued my skin. It’s also had a brilliant effect on my décolleté which now being in my 40’s and a previous sun lover was looking a bit tired
This serum, is lightweight, quick absorbing and made a positive, visible difference within days (and is still continuing to do so about a month later). I have received lovely compliments about my skin and it is feeling calmer, smoother and more even in tone. I definitely feel like I have found my perfect serum - thank you lovely Kri :)
So, I have very sensitive skin due to Lupus and Erythematotelangiectatic Rosacea (the flushing at the drop of a hat and prominent facial veins version). Finally, after 57 years, I have found skincare that works. I’ve waited until I’ve used up the Illume Serum, Purify Gentle Cleanser and Timeless Moisturiser before leaving a review. No adverse reactions and calmer, less red skin. Found the skincare a lovely base for makeup as well. Everyone’s skin is different so this may not work for you but I am delighted!
Great serum amazing at cleansing pores and not drying at all. Gives you smooth radiant skin
I'm using Illume after hydrate and I have found it has made a massive difference to my skin. Its smoother, brighter and it really is noticeable. It will be a fixture in my regime from now on.
Yet another lovely product. I team this up with the hydrate serum, too. Adding the Hydrate follwed by illume. Illume much thicker than the hydrate but I like them both way too much to choose just one.
This serum is a lovely thick one but soaks into your skin pretty quickly. I truly love it & layered with the Bakuchiol & Timeless it makes a great non oily daytime regime
This is on the pricier end for a niacinamide serum, but it’s obvious that they’ve put a lot of thought into the formulation because it doesn’t pill like the cheaper brands (think TO and IL). That alone is worth the investment because I actually want to use it every day. Sits comfortably and nicely on my skin. Better value if you buy it in the layered bundle.
