Gerovital Happiness - Anti-Imperfections Serum Illumination Effect

Dear Roses and Lilies,

I've recently got several products from the new Gerovital Happiness line made by the Romanian brand Farmec. Before we get right down to my first review, here is a round up of the products I have in my collection:

Dragi Roze si Crini,

Am achizitionat recent cateva produse din gama Gerovital Happiness, de la Farmec. Inainte sa continuam cu prima recenzie, iata si produsele pe care le am in colectie:


 
The product I will review first is Anti-Imperfections Serum Illumination Effect with blueberry extract. This serum is for combination and oily skin types and it contains natural salicylic acid, which helps exfoliate your skin.

Primul produs pe care il voi recenza este un Ser Antiimperfectiuni cu Efect de Iluminare, cu extract de afine. Acest ser este potrivit tenului mixt si gras si contine acid salicilic natural, care ajuta la exfolierea celulelor moarte.



Let's also look at the ingredients list Haideti sa ne uitam peste lista de ingrediente

Aqua, Salix Nigra Bark Extract, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Sorbitan isostearate, Polysorbate 60, Alcohol Denat, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Glycerin, Vaccinium Myrtillus Fruit Extract, Potassium Sorbate, Sorbic Acid, Magnesium aspartate, Zinc Gluconate, Copper gluconate, Parfum

The alcohol and the fragrance are not at the top of the list, like you would find with some name brand products, but their presence is still an indication that those of you who have very sensitive skin should steer clear of this product, even if your sensitive skin has the tendency to get oily.

Alcoolul si parfumul nu sunt cap de lista, cum descoperim la unele produse de la marci cunoscute, dar faptul ca sunt totusi prezente inseamna ca produsul nu este potrivit pentru tenul foarte sensibil, chiar si cu tendinta de ingrasare.

The second ingredient on the list is the salicylic acid, which, as mentioned, helps exfoliate your skin. This is a BHA (beta-hydroxy-acid) which will dry out normal or dry skins, so this is something to remember when reaching for this serum or any exfoliating products with BHAs, for that matter.

Al doilea ingredient din lista este acidul salicilic, care, cum am mai spus, ajuta la exfoliere. Acesta este un BHA (acid de tip betahidroxi) care usuca pielea normala sau uscata, lucru de care va trebui sa tineti cont daca vreti sa alegeti acest ser sau orice alt ser care contine BHA.

The product claims (paraphrasing): brings back radiance to your skin, gets rid of surface imperfections, helps get rid of discoloration and stimulates cellular metabolism.

Ce spune Farmec despre produs (si aici parafrazez): reda stralucirea tenului, te scapa de imperfectiunile de suprafata, imbunatateste aspectul petelor pigmentare si stimuleaza metabolismul celular.

Before getting down to whether it works as it claims to do, let me introduce you to the little purplish tube: it is a plastic tube - no jar, no glass bottle with pump, too heavy to carry around in your bag. The amount of product is impressive: 50 ml/ 1.69 oz for an incredibly affordable price. The serums I've tested till now only have 30 ml/ 1.0 oz. of product and cost a lot more. In terms of texture, this is a gel, with a lot of water in it (still, not as much water as found in the Garnier Moisture Match gel cream) and it applies smoothly. It gets absorbed within seconds and it doesn't leave any residue. Also, it doesn't feel tacky nor greasy on the skin, which is something I love. It smells of blueberries, and the scent stays on for a few minutes, if you do not apply anything else on top.

Inainte sa trec in revista ce anume face din ce spune reclama, haideti sa va fac cunostinta cu acest tubulet mov: este din plastic - fara borcanel, fara sticla cu pompita, prea grea ca sa o cari in geanta. Contine o cantitate impresionanta de produs: 50 ml la un pret incredibil de avantajos. Serurile pe care le-am testat pana acum contin doar 30 ml de produs si sunt mult mai scumpe. In ceea ce priveste textura, produsul este sub forma de gel, cu un continut ridicat de apa (totusi nu la fel de ridicat ca cel din crema-gel Moisture Match de la Garnier), si se simte matasos la aplicare. Se absoarbe in cateva secunde si nu lasa urme. De asemenea, nu e lipicios si nici unsuros, ceea ce imi place foarte mult. Miroase a afine, si aroma ramane daca nu aplicati altceva peste, dupa ser.



What I discovered after a few days of using this product (applying it mornings and evenings, after cleansing and before moisturizing) is that it does make my face more radiant, day by day. I am still patiently waiting to see if the discoloration around my nose and mouth will go away, but, for that, I'll have to keep using the serum for at least a month. In the meantime, I will enjoy the benefits of the salicylic acid, yummy blueberry scent and the velvety feel of my skin after applying the serum.

Ce am descoperit dupa cateva zile de utilizare (aplicat dimineata si seara, dupa curatirea fetei si inainte sa aplic o crema hidratanta) este ca imi face fata mai luminoasa zi de zi. Inca astept rabdatoare sa vad daca imi face petele sa dispara, dar va trebui sa folosesc produsul pentru cel putin o luna ca sa apara niste rezultate. Intre timp, ma voi bucura de beneficiile acidului salicilic, de aroma delicioasa de afine si de senzatia catifelata a tenului meu dupa ce aplic serul.

Have you tried this serum from the new Gerovital Happiness line? What are your thoughts on it?

Ati incercat acest ser din noua gama Gerovital Happiness? Ce parere aveti despre el?
