MVO Moisture Serum 30 ml USD 80
Many months back, I had a great experience trying out a sample of the Moisture Serum from MVO. It left such an impression on me that I knew I had to purchase the bottle in full in my next haul.
I have been faithfully using this serum every night for the past 3 months and I think it is due time to give a full review on this.
Before I write my thoughts, here's what MVO says about this product:
Camellia sinensis (green & white tea), Simmondsia chinensis (jojoba oil), Prunus armeniaca (apricot kernel oil), Vitus viniferi (grapeseed oil, expeller-pressed), Rubus idaeus (red raspberry seed oil), vegetable glycerin, arabinogalactin, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), kombucha extract, Sambucus nigra (elderberry) extract, dipotassium glycyrrhizate (licorice) extract, uva ursi (bearberry) extract, gum tragacanth, potassium sorbate, xantham gum, Cosmocil CQ*, Lonicera japonica (honeysuckle), niacinamide, beta glucan, Rosemary oleoresin, Cistus incanus (cistus) essential oil, Daucus carota (carrot seed) essential oil, Lavendula angustifolia (lavender) essential oil.
With a longer period for me to fully experience this serum, I began to see a new light to this product. Other than having this serum that smells great like fresh leaves, this serum is WOW! I really, really adore this serum so much that I like this more than the Anti Aging Oil.
What I really like about this serum is that it always leaves my skin soft and smooth to touch. Both my cheeks are seriously like mini baby's bottom! It also never fails to hydrate my skin, leaving it plump and bouncy the day after. This serum is just perfect for me because it does not break out on me. It somehow balances my skin well and I have been experiencing good skin condition since I incorporated this serum into my regime. Not only that, it always makes me look fresh with a glow every morning even at times when I have some late nights. Sound like a power serum, isn't it?
This serum reminds me very much of Estee Lauder's Hydrationist...except that this Moisture Serum is way much better because the hydration last longer. Sometimes, I may just skip this serum for 2 days and just stick with the Anti Aging Oil. Even for the 2 days, the hydration level of my skin remained.
Routine: Cleanse: Double Cleanse with Trilogy Cream Cleanser and Dermalogica Ultracalming Cleanser > Toner: Dermalogica Multi Active Toner > Eye: GoW Eye Majik Cream > Serum: Marie Veronique Moisture Serum > Moisturise: Marie Veronique Anti Aging Oil+ ( 1 drop )
I personally think this is an underrated product and it is a hidden gem amongst the other serums in the MVO range. This is a great serum to have for anyone who is experiencing dry or dehydrated skin. I think this is great too for those who wish to boost back some hydration level to their skin. I foresee that this serum will remain as a staple in my skincare regime and I have already purchase 2 bottles during the cyber monday sale recently ( P/S: MVO was offering 25% off their entire line on cyber monday )! This serum clearly deserves a 5 out of 5 rating.
