The product I will share today, is the second product I tried from the Caroline Hirons Autumn kit I bought in November 2020. I was really looking forward to try it as I have never used anything from Zelens and i have heard some many good opinions about the brand and their products.
Let’s get down to business

My Opinion: well unfortunately this product did not work for me. Although it has been praised as a serum that will help hydrate your skin and makes it look and feel plumper, it did the exact opposite. My skin felt drier and uncomfortable. and the more I used it the more dull and drier looked.
I used the entire bottle to see if it was just a reaction at the beginning, but nothing changes during the entire time. I kept my routine the same but at the end I added nourish oil and a heavier cream to compensate the dryness. But nothing seems to work. Once I stopped using the serum my skin slowly went back to normal.
This was a pity as It was from a very renowned brand and also the price is extremely high (thank god I bought it with a discount).
This is a perfect example that what works for many it may not work for you. Maybe this is a wonderful product for many but for me was the opposite. The performance does not justify the price.
If you are using it and you are loving it keep going! every skin is different
