Eden's Semilla Vitamin C Serum & Hyaluronic Acid Serum*

I was once again given further opportunity for work with Eden's Semilla, and was happy to try out these two facial serums. 25% Vitamin C & Hyaluronic Acid Serum. 

Now I will be perfectly honest the title ACID doesn't really spring to mind pleasant thoughts, I mean am I being silly but doesn't that scream ouch! That set aside, they wouldn't be able to sell anything that would actually harm you and even provide a 100% money back guarantee if you're not happy with the results. Both serums are made from 100% organic products, making them vegan-friendly and free from nasty chemicals like sulfates. 

25% Vitamin C Serum, R.R.P £10.95 for 15ml. This is an anti-aging serum, which contains Vitamin C, Hyaluronic acts, Retinol, Vitamin E and Rosehip & Jojoba Oil.

This serum boasts that it is able to promote the skin's natural defenses, replace lost moisture and reduce the signs of fine lines & wrinkles. Giving skin a firmer, softer, healthier look. 

I cannot comment complete on the wrinkled side of things, however, I do have fine smile lines around my mouth and mega baggage under my eyes.

I know that many brands use Vitamin C for a waking up type of product, so it is no surprise that this is the potent factor in this serum. Vitamin C is known for its antioxidant properties, particularly when it comes to action against premature aging. 

Hyaluronic Acid, agh that word again, is one I have not heard of before, however, it is something our skin produces naturally when it wants to keep hold of much-needed moisture. Perfect for the moisturising parts of this serum. 
Retinol again sounds like a scary word, but this is worded as a superstar ingredient that targets the fine lines and wrinkles.

Vitamin E is an antioxidant also known to help reduce puffiness and is an easily absorbed moisturiser. 

Rosehip Oil is something I often keep in my bedside table for when my skin needs a little extra moisture, and Jojoba Oil I have reviewed previously and found worked well for all over the body. These two combined create a perfect nongreasy formula, perfect for sensitive skin. These are known to help treat and keep at bay acne, dry and irritated skin; as well as help reduce the signs of aging and skin imperfections such as stretch marks. 

I gave this one to my mum to try as it seemed to be the one aimed more towards already aged skin, sorry mum. Here's what she thought, "it is lovely and makes my skin feel smooth and soft. It resolves into the skin without leaving a greasy film." Perfect words, I couldn't agree more.

Hyaluronic Acid Serum, R.R.P £10.95 for 15ml. This is again anther anti-acing product which doubles as a moisturiser. 

As above the hyaluronic acid is a natural moisturiser, however as we age so does our bodies ability to keep up with the high demands of life and thus reducing the amount of acid our body actually produces, hence the need to add a little extra into our routine.  
This serum is again infused with Retinol and Vitamin C & E, as well as a blend of Aleo Vera and Shea Butter. With much the same ingredients as the serum above this differs pure with the last two ingredients.

Aleo Vera is well known for it's soothing and healing properties, combined with Sea Butter, this duo are a power moisturiser. They work together to provide all-around protection and to help aid your skins hydration process.

When I first used this I was surprised at how thick the serum was when it came out of the droplet, however, when you actually apply it to your skin it becomes very watery and absorbs almost instantly.

I have been using this for about a week now and have not had any breakouts, my skin feels smoother and my few fine lines appear reduced.

* I received these serums from Eden's Semilla for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased feedback, all my views and opinions are my own and have not been influenced in any way. Please see my Disclaimer for more information.

Always be kind, you never know what personal battle people are fighting.
