Regular readers of my blog will know that I use the Vitamin C Serum from the Body Shop twice a day and I love it. Regular readers will also now that I am constantly challenging my staple products, so when the shiny packaging for the Soap & Glory Make Yourself Youthful Super Serum caught my eye I just had to see if the contents were as appealing.
Marketed as a rejuvenating facial moisture serum , and with pretty high shine mirrored 30ml packaging this would without challenge look great on any vanity unit or bathroom shelf. Although it looks like a squeezey tube this is in fact made out of hard plastic packaging. I am a sucker for a gimmick and so visually this already has me sold.I am however not as easily won over where serum is concerned so let’s crack on to see how it performed …
The consistency of this serum is light and it applied well to the skin which absorbed it easily, a lost like it was the moisture it had craved. It has a fresh citrus scent which leaves you feeling mighty fresh. One pump gives you enough serum for your face and neck unless of course you are a giraffe or Humpty Dumpty in which case I figure you have bigger problems than looking youthful anyway !!!
Soap & Glory themselves provide us with the following useful information….

• ENERGINSENG™ – a special blend of energy-and-oxygen-boosting actives, including ginseng (it’s like a wake-up call for your face) “”
All sounds good in print as I am sure you will agree , but did it help with my fine lines ?????
After application my face certainly had a glow and appeared more youthful and dewy. My lines are certainly less visible but at 42 I doubt any creme will eradicate these completely. My skin felt super soft and after using it every day for a month I can honestly say I am loving this serum just as much as The Body Shop Vit C Serum and at £20.00 this really will not break the bank. When this tube runs put I will be purchasing another. And used before make-up in the morning it won’t be long before your colleagues are wondering who the new girl is.
Great packaging excellent product 4 AJ stars awarded **** .
