I’m not much of a makeup gal. I never have been, partially because my face is very sensitive and partly because I don’t want to spend hours putting products on and figuring out how to apply them artfully. As I’ve gotten older, I have noticed that my face has more wrinkles (let’s all agree to call them joy lines) and feels different. I’ve used many other moisturizers from Mary Kay to Beautycounter, and while some have worked (the two I mentioned) without causing my face to itch, burn, or break out in hives, others have not done so well. I wanted to try something new but wanted it to be high-quality and good for my skin. When I received THE SERUM ($185) from KIND.EST, I wasn’t sure. However, Kate Bosworth supports and advertises it, saying she is “someone who believes in maintaining the integrity of the skin for long term goals” and that “this serum is an absolute game-changer.” So, I thought, if Lois Lane is claiming this serum is a game-changer, why not give it a try, right?
I liked that KIND.EST collaborated with the “world-renowned health specialist Dr. Nigma to create a unique and result-driven serum using high-quality ingredients.” I also liked that the serum supports the skin microbiome and encourages the skin to stimulate collagen. I was just afraid that the ingredients (hydrolyzed marine collagen, hyaluronic acid, prebiotics, flower, and seaweed extracts) may cause my face to break out. I’ve been using the serum for about a month now and have had no problems. In fact, I feel like my skin looks brighter and feels softer. The appearance of my joy lines may have even improved!
The Serum is super easy to use. I apply one pipette to my clean skin and gently massage it using circular motions upward and outward on my entire face and décolleté. It dries quickly, allowing me to swipe on some mascara and blush and go. I’ve been impressed with how the product works as well as how long it’s lasting me. I wasn’t sure how long it would last since it tells you to use a whole pipette, but I’m not even down to half a bottle yet, and I’ve had it for a month.
One thing I don’t love is the price. As I said, I’m not much of a makeup/beauty product gal so spending nearly $200 on a face serum seems kind of steep to me. I’m sure some of you out there will tell me that I’m being too cheap with my products, and maybe I am, I don’t know. The other thing is that The Serum is made in France. So, if you’re looking for beauty products produced in the US, this one isn’t for you.
So, friends, if you’re searching for a good product that is made with high-quality ingredients, helps your joy lines fade a bit, and makes you feel better about your skin, this is a good one to grab. Maybe an Easter or Mother’s Day gift for that special someone? Go for it!
