A good moisturizer is a great start if you really want to start taking better care of your skin. If you’re looking to kick things up a notch and really target those skin concerns, though, you’re going to need a good serum to go along with your moisturizer. Serums are formulated with stronger, more potent ingredients as well as larger doses of essentials oils and such for deeper penetration and nourishment. Basically, they’re essential for keeping your complexion clear and healthy!
My current favorite serum is the new Bare Minerals Brilliant Future Age Defense & Renew Serum. It’s an anti-aging serum designed to
- Target the early signs of aging
- Re-energize and renew radiance
- Combat environmental stressors
The Bare Minerals Brilliant Future Age Defense & Renew Serum is a lightweight lotion serum suitable for all skin types with very fine golden micro-shimmer to boost radiance. It’s key ingredients include:
- Manganese boosts collagen production as well as provides antioxidant protection against oxygen related damage and UV light
- Vitamin C powerful antioxidant that helps prevent and treat free radical and UV damage while boosting collagen
I’ve been using the Bare Minerals Brilliant Future Age Defense & Renew Serum for over a month now and I really like the formula. Again, the formula is rather lightweight so it absorbs quickly and leaves behind a little bit of moisture and a beautiful radiant glow that looks natural–never shimmery. I went into the Bare Minerals Brilliant Future Age Defense & Renew Serum expecting to see an improvement in my annoying fine lines. But, alas, I was disappointed. I won’t say the Brilliant Future Age Defense & Renew Serum didn’t help my fine lines. Because it did a little. The extra moisture boost helps to my thirsty under eyes and mouth area nice and hydrated all day but it didn’t really change or improve the appearance of my fine lines like I was hoping.
Instead, the Brilliant Future Age Defense & Renew Serum gave my dry, dull skin a much needed boost heading into spring. I definitely needed it, too! After a dry, windy winter, my skin has been feeling a little dry, dull and stressed from all of the sudden weather changes. The Brilliant Future Age Defense & Renew Serum really helped my skin bounce back by softly plumping and tightening my skin making it look smoother while also giving me a natural, all-over luminous glow. No highlighter needed!
Overall, I’m really enjoying using the Bare Minerals Brilliant Future Age Defense & Renew Serum! I think it’s a wonderful option for those looking to add a little extra moisture and glow to their routine. However, if you’re looking for some hardcore anti-aging benefits then you might want to try something a little different.
