Nothing surprises me so much, as to break into a bottle that says “serum” and find out that it’s an oil. Yes, my friends, the A’kin Revitalising Cellular Radiance Serum is in fact, a facial oil. Threw me for a loop at first!
The box is super colourful, but the bottle itself is fairly plain in its packaging. I had been sent this a long time ago, but never got round to using it for a good reason.
A’kin is a natural brand of skincare by Purist, and hails from Australia. I had tried one of their shampoos quite a few years ago which did not wow me. I actually hated it, which might explain my reluctance to try anything else from them, especially skincare. Also, I used to be quite against natural/organic skincare, due to some bad experiences.
Recently however, I discovered this serum in my stash while doing a spot of decluttering, and decided to use it as my day serum, after I ran out of my HG Worship serum. That was when I realised that this Cellular Radiance Serum was in fact, a facial oil, and I was a little hesitant about using it on my skin in the day.
I’m a keen user of facial oils, but I’ve thus far, kept it for use in the evening routine, because of the texture. Somehow, the idea of using oils in the day frightened me a little. I wasn’t sure if it would leave my skin looking and feeling too greasy.
But you know, I’ve come to really enjoy using this, and I seriously think that it’s done good things for my skin! Oh and no, it’s not oily at all 😀
