Skylar Skin

Forever Flawless Serum

A few months ago, I think it was the end of November I met Brittany from Skylar Skin.She came into my work to talk about the new line we were carrying, which was the Skylar Skin: Flawless by Friday: 5 Day Detox System. I was really interested with this line because of the ingredients they used and the price point. Let’s be honest companies make you pay for good ingredients and I really appreciate it  when I can get great ingredients for a reasonable price. I think Skylar Skin does an amazing job at delivering quality products for a reasonable price.

I say all this to say I was not so patiently waiting for the release of the the Forever Flawless serum ever since that day when Brittany told me about it. When we finally got them in store  a few weeks ago I snatched up a bottle and I’m so in love with it .

The Forever Flawless serum comes in at  100g for  $40-44 CAD depending on weather you pick it up online from skylar skin or in-store  at Trade Secrets.I think, and I’m sure lovers of high end skin care would agree, is surprisingly reasonable prices when you compare it to similar serums on the market. I appreciate that in store the box is sealed so I don’t have to worry about people getting there grubby hands into the product.

Claims:

The serum comes with the following claims to treat  :

  • fine lines and acne
  • improves uneven skin tone from scarring and texture
  • Also improves dullness,oiliness and blackheads.

Ingredients

  • Water (Aqua)
  • Hyaluronic acid (2%)
  • Glycolic Acid (5%)
  • Alcohol Denat
  • Sodium Hydroxide
  • Lactic Acid
  • Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract juice (20%)
  • Hydroxyethcellulose
  • Citric Acid
  • Malic Acid

For some reason when I first tried the serum I was surprised by the texture, probably because in the bottle it looks like water, but it does  in fact have  a thick serum like texture. I really like the ease of application you get from the pipette, you simply dispense s few drops onto clean hands and press it into the skin. Initially it feels tacky but it absorbs quickly and the tackiness goes away. Due to the glycolic acid in this serum it is recommended for night time use only and it’s important that sun protection is used during the day.

I have dry skin and I suffer from eczema and I was so impressed with how moisturized my skin felt after application as well as when I got up the next morning. I’ve had a really stubborn spot of dried texture skin on my right cheek for a few months now and it’s gone. I really credit the smooth texture of my skin and the disappearance of the dry patch  to this serum. I do not suffer from acne and never have but I have been traveling a lot recently and got one small blemish while in Miami and it literally dried it up in around two days. I feel as though the serum has definitely boost my moisture levels, calm the onslaught of blackheads I usual deal with and made my skin look and feel plump and full. I also have a co worker who is in love  as well with this serum.She has super oily skin,is  prone to breakout and has more mature skin than I do and she too swears by it. So I think it’s safe to say all skin types can benefit from this product. If you’ve never used a serum before which was me a year ago, heres a great one to try.

The only con I’ve found to this product is how fast you go through it. I was shocked to see the dent I made in the product after my first four uses (literally 3-4 drops per use), with that said I think the performance and price point makes up for it. This product gets my stamp of approval. Definitely stay tune for more reviews from this company, there are some mask I’ve been eyeing up.

You can order from the Skylar skin website skylarskin  or pick it up in Trade Secret stores
