I was delighted to test Aurelia’s Revitalise & Glow Serum for What’s In My Handbag. What’s In My Handbag is a really great site for make-up and beauty enthusiasts who would like to weigh-in with their two-penny-worth when it comes to product. However, I digress…the serum!
This little bottle of loveliness flew through my letterbox a few weeks ago - and I’ve held off writing my review because I really wanted to put it through its paces. I used it in the beautiful London (mostly) sun, then in the sweltering humid climes of New York. I have to say, this delicate serum kept my skin glowing on both sides of the pond.
It’s an incredibly light, milky serum, and a little goes a very long way. I’ve still got quarter of my sample size left, and I’ve been using it twice daily for weeks. Two drops really does cover the entire face, despite being easily absorbed. It is different from all other serums I’ve used; in no way greasy or oily, and has a feel of being soothing and nutrient packed.
Aurelia, a British company who manufacture in England, boasts probiotic skincare:
"Our scientifically proven, evidence based skincare works by helping to manage the level of inflammation within the skin, the main cause of skin ageing."
This is good news for my incredibly sensitive, 41 year old skin, that cries out for gentle help.
Aurelia are also a company with principles in matters that matter to me: bioorganic, responsible sourcing, kind to the environment and they don’t test on animals. They also have a strict ‘free-from’ policy that has me breathing with a sigh of relief. With their increased popularity and beauty award-winning status, I hope these are principles that will be adhered to as they get bigger and better (and I’ve no doubt they will).
As for the Revitalise & Glow Serum, it has left my skin plump, calmed and happy. I use it pre-moisturiser, as my dehydrated skin needs an extra something, although it can be used solo if your skin agrees.
