Beauty Talk Tuesday // Do You Use A Serum?
Do you use a serum? Is that one of the things you put on your face in the morning or at night? I do and I try a lot of different kinds depending on what is going on with my skin.
Most recently my skin had gotten pretty dry. I don’t know why, but my products weren’t working for my skin as they were previously. So, I had to make a few adjustments to my skin care and find a few items to incorporate that would help my dry skin. Vitamin C usually is good for dry skin so I looked for a serum that included it but that would also be sensitive on my skin. I don’t want to put anything too harsh on my face and my skin tends to be more sensitive. It can get red with some products or overly dry which can lead to breakouts. Eh. I’m all set with that!
I am excited to share Vitabrid’s new launch at Barneys NY: The Dual Serum! Featuring an innovative Twist-to-Mix bottle, its advanced design allows the two separate skincare serums enclosed in each bottle (one yellow, one clear) to be freshly mixed together upon opening. Offering stabilized, active Vitamin C and Peptides, they are mixed only prior to use to activate the ingredients for optimal results and freshness. Did you know this about Vitamin C?
Vitabrid’s advanced design allows the two separate serums enclosed in each bottle to be freshly mixed together upon opening. Simply rotate the bottom of the container clockwise to release the yellow Deep Care Serum and shake the bottle to mix it with the clear Skin Barrier Serum.
The Vitabrid Dual Serum is easily absorbed with hybridized Vitamin C and Peptides that deliver proven anti-aging benefits and an even skin tone both internally and externally. The skin-brightening formula improves tone, texture, firmness, and elasticity while moisturizing and supplying nutrients to the skin to protect it from external stress factors. The formula has a significant anti-aging and anti-wrinkle effect while keeping the skin thoroughly hydrated. Even skin tone and brightening my skin are two things that really are on the front of my mind when I look in the mirror!
In addition to the Twist-to-Mix packaging, there are two other innovative technologies incorporated into this advanced serum: Vitabrid® and Peptibrid™.
- With Vitabrid®, Vitamin C is stabilized through the use of the patented Layered Double Hydroxide (LDH) technology which encapsulates Vitamin C between bio-friendly mineral layers such as zinc and magnesium to deliver active Vitamin C for over 12 hours deep into the skin.
- The second technology is Peptibrid™, the next step in the evolution of peptide delivery platforms. Peptibrid (INCI name: Peptibrid) improves the purity and penetration rate of peptides by improving its limitations such as stability and skin absorption. It promotes collagen synthesis and regeneration efficiency.
In order to maintain a stabilized state, the yellow Deep Care Serum and the clear Skin-Barrier Serum are stored separately in this unique Twist-to-Mix Bottle. They are mixed only prior to use to activate the ingredients, maintaining freshness and delivering optimal results. The yellow coloration of the Deep Care Serum is due to natural pigmentation. Upon mixing, the serum will initially be yellow but fade back to being clear after about one month due to contact with light, heat and air. This is a visible indicator that the serum contains natural pigmentation and is best used within the recommended time frame while it is the freshest. One 10mL bottle provides a 10-day supply to ensure the serum is entirely used during its peak state of freshness.
I think it is just so cool you are mixing this serum fresh right before you use it! That is not something you get to do often if ever! I loved how smooth this went on to my skin. I used three pumps and gently pat it in to my skin all over my face. There is no scent and a few pumps is plenty.
To Use: Rotate the bottom of the container clockwise to release the yellow Deep Care Serum. Shake the bottle to mix the clear Skin-Barrier Serum with the Deep Care Serum, and apply 2-3 pumps to the skin.
Price: $75 for a 30-day supply (Box contains (3) 10mL bottles; each used for 10 days at a time)
