Poethique Radiance Boosting Serum Review (and a discount!)
I'm always excited to discover new, up-and-coming natural skincare brands, so I was thrilled when the lovely Gayatri from Poethique reached out to me. Poethique is a beautiful brand, not only with a focus on 100% natural, effective skincare, but also with an ethical focus. The ingredients are sustainably sourced, the packaging is fully recyclable and for every unit of inaugural line of products that Poethique sell, they donate 1% of sales to 1% for the Planet. 1% for the Planet, supports organizations dedicated to saving our forests, rivers and oceans and to getting toxins out of the environment.
I've been using the Poethique Radiance Boosting Serum every night for the last 5-6wks.
It contains Australian Caviar Lime, rich in alpha hydroxy-acids which gently exfoliate the skin. The blend of Australian Burdekin, Illawarra and Kakadu Plums deliver a boost of free-radical fighting antioxidants and vitamin C. The result is a brighter complexion and smoother skin.
I absolutely love it. Isn't it just so pretty? The metallic copper against the blue label looks so gorgeous sitting on the shelf. The Poethique Radiance Boosting Serum is packaged in a glass jar, with a glass dropper. Droppers are my preferred method for serums and oils, as it makes it so easy to dispense the correct amount of product.
Consistency & Application
The serum has a thin, gel-like texture. It is silky, and smooth on the skin, and absorbs quickly. Once absorbed, I wouldn't even know I had it on - it is that light, and absorbs so fully. I only use 2-3 drops, over a toner, every evening and it is sufficient for my face and neck. I then follow with my other skincare.
It layers beautifully over other products. This isn't a moisturiser, but I did find I could cut back the amount of moisturiser or other oils I was putting on my skin. I didn't experience any oiliness or heaviness, but the first few days (until I adjusted my routine), my pores where looking enlarged in the morning, the way my skin tends to do if I've over-done the moisturising.
Because of the citrus and exfoliation element, I do ensure I rinse my skin in the morning, and only use this in the evening.
With this type of product (an exfoliation, brightening action), I always find it takes a few weeks for me to see results (I always recommend giving any product a full month of two of trialling to see results). I started to notice a difference in my skin around 2-3 weeks. The Poethique Radiance Boosting Serum leaves my skin so smooth (any little dry spots or rough spots were completely gone), and evenly toned. It also helps to reduce and fade marks from blemishes, or any pigmentation. I really do feel it has added an overall radiance to the skin. I also really like using it on the neck & decolletage - my skin looks smoother, more hydrated and fresher overall.
Overall & discount
I have really enjoyed using this serum, and it definitely delivers results. I think Radiance Boosting Serum is the absolute perfect description - it really does help to boost the skin's radiance!
