Hi guys, I hope all is well. I have another update in my 2 month BP skincare challenge! For this update, it will be a review of the Triple Hyaluronic acid and peptide serum from Beauty Pie. This serum promises super glowy, dewy and healthy skin, intense hydration and smoothing benefits.
I have been using the serum twice a day for the last 4 weeks but in the last few days, I have been using it once in the PM as I have picked up another morning serum. In the mornings, I was using it after the Japan Fusion Hydra Prep Lotion and before my creams and in the evenings, also after the Prep lotion but before the retinol serum and moisturiser. I am almost out of the serum so I thought it would be a good time to review it. It’s housed in a lux 50ml glass bottle with a pump (that works!). I have experienced no irritation with the serum.
The serum has a medium consistency, spreads very easily on the skin and sinks into it. It feels very smooth. In terms of hydrating the skin, I think the BP Triple Hyaluronic serum was average. I felt like it worked better on damp skin so I was layering this onto the skin right after the essence instead of letting it fully dry as I did in the first weeks of using the serum. It leaves my skin slightly tacky after it has dried down.
In terms of combining this with other products, I found that this serum works well with the other two BP serums I have combined it with, i.e. the retinol and daily vitamin serum. When I tried to combine it with Niacinamide from the ordinary, it piled like crazy! And when I touched my face I got white flakes all over. It was so bad that around my hairline it looked like I had dandruff! I wish I took a picture but I was at work when I noticed it and I was not happy at all. I had to reach for my Niacinamide serum because I am going through a bad breakout ( which I don’t understand because I have been loyal to my skincare routine) and the new Plantastic drops I picked up were not cutting it( I also have a horrible story of combing Niacinamide and the drops and it piled and made my face itchy). I know it’s not the Niacinamide because if you guys would remember I raved about this serum all of last year and I combined it with many different serums and creams and I did not experience any piling whatsoever.
I had a quick look at the ingredient list of the serum and from my research there are a lot of skin conditioning and ingredients to improve the texture of the serum ( which explains why the serum itself has a lovely smooth texture). In terms of hydrating and smoothing the skin as the serum claims I didn’t think it was extraordinary, I thought was it was ok. I still had some texture on my skin. I really prefer my Amino acid serum over this one for leaving my skin hydrated and that costs £5.90 (I really do miss my single formulation serums).
I think the retail price of this price is very high, its £60 and honestly I do not think its worth that much. It has been a bittersweet experience. A lot of people seem to like this serum as it’s raved about on the website and it’s actually out of stock. For me it was average and I would not repurchase.
That’s all folks. I hope you found this helpful. Not long to go now with the challenge, I now have reviews for the Japan Fusion Cleanser, Hydra Prep Lotion and the super healthy skin lotion on the blog. The sunscreen review will be up very shortly. I want to leave the retinol reviews until the last week of Feb but I do have a small amount left so whichever comes first.
