My skin is in desperate need of a boost right now, (as most skin-conscious lovelies must be noticing too) due to dehydrating blasts of central heating it has had to endure over the past few months.
Perfect timing for Annick Goutal Elixir Splendide Essential Care Active Rose Serum to find it's way into my serum-enthusiast hands! What I love about serums is they contain high concentrations of skin-benefiting and nourishing ingredients that can do the extra job moisturisers just can't. Although, I must say I have been disappointed on a few occasions, where I anxiously awaited the results of my efforts after religiously applying the serum twice daily for well over one month, with no noticeable difference to my complexion at all!
I got off to a good start with Annick Goutal Elixir Splendide Essential Care Active Rose Serum; as soon as I opened the bottle, my senses were delighted with the luxurious scent of rose. After applying a few drops of the clear liquid, which has a consistency a serum should have; it easily soaks into the skin and isn't sticky once it's on. It contains argan oil and is enriched with omega-6 fatty acids and antioxidant vitamin E. Annick Goutal Elixir Splendide Essential Care Active Rose Serum is For dry and sensitive skin and is meant to enhance hydration, renew skin cells and reveal a smoother, more radiant complexion. And it indeed did all of this, and wonders for my skin pretty much instantly. My skin is smoother, plumper and has a really amazing glow - like I've had the best facial going (and I don't say this lightly). In fact, I have to keep glancing in the mirror to actually believe the transformation, because the effects last and last. Even hours later my skin looks like I've had a professional treatment.
£100 for 30ml is a steep pricetag, however a very good investment. The bottle it comes in feels like there is much more than 30mls. It will defintely last for ages, as you don't need much for each application, I'm estimating about 3 months. To justify this luxurious skin treat, break it down to just over £30 per month.
Annick Goutal, you have made me and my skin very happy, I am now an avid fan.
