Skin Type : Normal to Dry / not acne prone but a bit sensitive
Hi Everyone, 🙂
I am reviewing two serums for you all today. I have pretty much finished using them this past month.
Rodial Bee Venom Super Serum:
£160.00 / INR 13,000
This is my first time using anything from Rodial. I picked up their Hangover Mask and this serum together. Honestly, I was not very comfortable with the idea of using bee venom on my skin. It is not the most amazing sounding ingredient to slap on your face, but sometimes you do try out the cray-cray products. This was definitely my moment. 😀
The serum comes packed in this lovely bright yellow pump bottle. The serum is white viscous liquid. It is quite light and gets absorbed in the skin quickly. It does not leave any greasy/heavy feeling behind and prepares your skin for moisturiser to go on top. This serum is an anti-ageing serum and contains bio marine collagen that helps with hydration of the skin. Bee venom helps with muscle contraction and helps withe expression lines.
I have finished using the entire bottle of this serum – every last drop of it. It did nothing to my skin. I did not see any results. I waited for days, and weeks…my skin was as it is. There was definitely no help with even hydration of my skin. It just felt like an additional product that I am using just because I have to. Also, the ‘bee venom’ is actually the last product listed on the list. I mean I would not like to argue on that because may be that is the appropriate quantity required to balance out other chemicals in the serum, but it is listed as the main ingredient in the name of the serum. Anyway, did not work for me. I would not repurchase it. I have started using another serum already and my skin looks so much better already. Also, I personally never felt right to use something that has bee venom in it. It’s just me but I don’t think I’d be purchasing such stuff again.
2/5 for pretty packaging and not harming my skin.
Pixi Overnight Glow Serum Review:
Pixi has been an amazing brand discovery for me. I have used many products from them so far and I pretty much like everything from the brand. It comes packed in this minty green glass bottle with a glass nozzle. The serum is quite thick and viscous but spreads evenly on the skin. I’d say it’s a bit sticky so give it a time to settle into the skin, but this serum is absolutely amazing. You apply it at night underneath your moisturiser and you wake up with such fresh, glowing and refreshed skin. The only thing is that when you wash your face in the morning, you do feel that some of the product is on top of your skin. The skin feels a bit slippery. You wash off your face with warm water and you have beautiful clean glowing skin.
It is an exfoliating serum. It includes 10% glycolic acid. It is a water-based serum and also includes glycerine, aloe, cucumber..all good stuff. I have normal to dry skin, so I use it every other night or it tends to dry my skin, but this stuff is just sooo good.
I have to repurchase it already. If you have oily skin, or if you are suffering from acne scars, this product would definitely help you. ” A revitalising ‘peel’, this gently dissolves the bonds that bind dulling, dead cells to skin’s surface – revealing the healthy ‘new’ skin cells beneath- from the claim.” I totally agree on that. It does feel like a new skin every morning.
Highly recommend it. You can order it from ASOS or form their own website. I think both of them ship worldwide. A glow serum that truly works. The only con I’d say is that the product on the sides of the bottle dries out and leads to the wastage. And then the product is this good, you really don’t want to waste any of it.
