Reduce Redness & Acne Scars-Skinkissed Serum

Initial Thoughts

To be completely honest with you all, I was a little bit skeptical about this serum when Skinskilled first reached out to me. I was intrigued to try it as I have always had redness to my skin and scars left after my acne. 

About the Serum

The ingredients within the serum are: Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid, Collagen and Rose Water. 
The ingredients used in the Vitamin C Serum have been used for centuries to achieve natural and healthy skin. 

On the website they give instructions on how the product is used best, which is something that I would like more companies to do as sometimes it can be difficult to know the best way to use certain serums/oils. The best ways to use it are:

Beauty – use it twice a day, morning and night, after washing your face. Can be used beneath moisturiser, or any follow-up step of your skin-care routine.

Makeup – Use it as a primer under your foundation, or apply it as a serum on your brush to blend your makeup.

Skincare – Use it as a treatment for oily skin and acne problems by combining it with your other skin treatment routines.

*For severe acne cases, please consult your dermatologist.

My Thoughts

As I said earlier I was very skeptical when I first received this serum as I’ve heard a lot of serums that claim things but don’t tend to actually deliver on their promises. Also I should say that this is not a sponsored post nor is this an ad with Skinkissed, I just thought I would share my thoughts on this serum. So with that being said, here are my thoughts.

I used this serum under my makeup whenever I wore it. I kind of used it as a base for my makeup. I also used it in replace of my primer to see if it would control the oils in my face. 

As I said earlier I have redness on my cheeks and acne scarring on my chin and cheeks so they are the areas I was hoping to see a difference. To be completely honest with you, I did see such a difference after using it for a few weeks. I have probably been using it for 2 months now and I feel like I can give a good review of what the serum has done for me. 

I will say that if you go for a period of not using the serum, I did notice that my skin started to turn red again, my acne scars didn’t come back as prominent but the redness did come back a bit. 

Once I was using the serum though, it really did help with calming the redness on my skin. If you suffer from acne scarring or redness then I would definitely recommend this serum for you. 

As for keeping my oils at bay, it did help in the sense of I noticed a difference compared to not using it under my makeup but I wouldn’t use it as a substitute for a primer as I was definitely quite oily and needing a powder top up after 3 or so hours I’d say.

Overall though, I do like this serum and it has helped in the areas that it claims to. It reduced my redness and my acne scars and when used with a primer it definitely controls my oils.

The Price

The price was one thing that caught me off guard. I didn’t think that it was a drugstore product but I didn’t think that it would be as expensive. It retails for £39.95. Don’t get me wrong, I know this isn’t the most expensive serum in the world, not even close but I just expected it to be less or at least in or  around £20. Considering the bottle is only 20ml, I do think it is a bit overpriced but considering it is a small business and they have costs to cover, I suppose it is understandable. I would still recommend the serum for the price as if you have any of the problems mentioned above, it really does help them! If you want to read more about it or pick it up for yourself, you can find it here.

Have you tried this serum before, if so let me know your thoughts in the comments. See you in my next post.

Thank you for reading,
