It messed my skin ph balance.
I've tried products from this brand before and I loved it, so I was really exited to try this serum. I've dry and sensitive skin, never had acne problems (unless one or two bumps with your period count) and a week after using this serum I had to stop. Acne started to appear, my pores got bigger, my skin looked dull... It's the first time my skin reacted badly to a skin care product.
*I'm not allergic to the ingredients but I do have PCOS and insulin resistance. Because the Beta Glucan is a polysaccharide, or carbohydrate formed by the union of several glucose molecules. it's possible my skin (like my body) does not recive well glucose so it reacted badly to it. *
If you do not have any problems with glucose GO FOR IT!
i find it very hard to find moisturizer. things that i've tried either makes my skin very oily, thus worsen my acne, or just didn't do anything for my dehydrated oily skin. But this serum is just amazing. It absorbs immediately into my skin, gives it just the right amount of moisture. i feel it plumpens my skin. Doesn't aggravate my sensitive skin. It's immediately became my favorite.
It's not 100% beta-glucan. In fact, it is 98%: here are the ingredients list according to ewg.org
WATER, BUTYLENE GLYCOL, 1,2-HEXANEDIOL, ETHYLHEXYLGLYCERIN, BETA-GLUCAN, SODIUM PCA.
This product is EWG verified.
Wonderfully hydrating and soothing. My skin feels super plump after applying and it plays well with any other product I've applied on top. I really enjoy that it's on the slightly more viscous side of serums without being sticky at all. It has become a regular in my skin care regime and is definitely my go-to serum for when my skin is irritated or slightly sensitized by the likes of an acid or retinoid.
