Once in a while a product comes along and throws your entire skin routine off — in a good way. The moment I popped one of these little capsules, I knew this was one of those situations. I had to rethink every other product to make room for this serum. Key word: Ceramide.
Ceramides are the essential lipids found in the surface layer of the skin. They help maintain the strength of the skin’s barrier layer, which — when intact — makes the skin appear extremely smooth.
I use it both morning and night, under my moisturiser. The serum’s consistency and texture is very moisturising (oily complexions might want to switch to a lighter moisturizer) and silky smooth — it makes the foundation glide on like butter.
