Don't Wait to Fall in Love this Valentine's Day - M Review 65
As we are approaching Valentine’s Day, love is in the air and it couldn’t be sweeter! It’s the time of the year when couples express their love for one another and when flowers and chocolates are flying off the shelves. However, whether you have a significant other or just living the single life, it is the perfect time to treat your partner or even just yourself to some love and care. Valentine’s Day shouldn’t just have to revolve around romantic love for someone else but love for yourself as well!
Looking forward to the season of love, I thought, “What better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than to indulge myself with some new skincare products?” To fit the theme of this day, I’ve been trying out Skin&Lab’s new line of “Red” products, which includes a serum and a cream. Initially, I fell in love with the red packaging as well as their red ingredients, which I will get to later. The serum and the cream are both priced at $35 on masksheets.com, which I think is a reasonable price. Now, to get to how these guys made me fall in love.
The Red Serum was the first product from Skin&Lab that I’ve tried. Serums are personally my favorite part of skincare since they are highly concentrated and target specific needs and concerns. The serum itself is very lightweight yet slightly viscous; I loved how it absorbed nicely into my skin without a heavy feeling. A majority of the ingredients in this serum include fruit and berry extracts, such as pomegranate, blueberry, acai, raspberry, cloudberry, and wolfberry. Wow that’s a lot of berries! These antioxidant-filled ingredients, alongside adenosine, provide an anti-aging function that protects and the skin from signs of aging caused by free radicals. The serum also contains Chinese matrimony vine (how fitting) and niacinamide to help brighten the skin. Additionally, the product would be suitable for sensitive skin since it is non-comedogenic and doesn’t contain any toxic ingredients.
So far, I’ve been loving this serum as part of my everyday night routine. My skin initially feels very soft and deeply hydrated without feeling heavy or sticky. My favorite aspect about the serum is that it makes my skin look ageless; the antioxidants in this serum brings back life to my skin with its rejuvenating properties. It helps tighten the appearance of my fine lines and wrinkles while giving my skin a youthful plump. Dark spots and blemishes gradually lighten, and there is a healthy glow to my skin that I’ve been especially loving for these colder months. Overall, I’ve fallen in love with this serum (probably more than I have with a boyfriend) and will continue to use it to see further results.
The Red Cream is the perfect match for the accompanying serum. Think of this cream as the Red Serum’s partner in love. The cream holds everything together and boosts the effectiveness of the serum. However, the cream has its own charms as well, implementing some different ingredients of its own. Much of the antioxidant-filled berry ingredients are infused in this cream as well. However, the cream incorporates damask rose extract and rose stem cell to provide even more antioxidants to the skin. The rose also adds an aromatic dose of hydration to the skin that revitalizes and keeps the skin soft and supple.
The combination of the Red Cream with the Red Serum is like a power couple. The cream, much like the serum, provides my skin an ample boost of soothing hydration. However, with its gel-cream formulation, it doesn’t feel heavy or sticky on the skin, and I haven’t noticed it clogging up my pores. It also brightens my skin and helps even out my redness and dark spots. Supplemented with the serum, this cream aids in improving my fine lines and wrinkles. I love being a little extra generous on my forehead, smile lines, and neck to keep everything looking plump and tight. My skin definitely feels a lot bouncier and softer after using it. Overall, I have grown to love this cream just as much as the serum.

I think Skin&Lab has created the perfect duo with these two products. These antioxidant-filled products, incorporating red ingredients, are must-haves if you are looking for something that is anti-aging, hydrating, and brightening. I think that all skin types can use these products without any sensitivity issues.
