Finding new skincare products to try and test out is one of my favourite products to do this with. I love discovering whether the product actually does what it says it does, and whether it works well with my skin type personally. I was contacted by the lovely Jo from Mila Simone, who offered to let me try their new ‘Mila Simone Azzura Essence’. After doing a bit of reading into what this ‘essence’ was, I was keen to try the serum out for myself.
“The Mila Simone Azzura Essence is a powerful blend of antioxidants that work in harmony to improve the overall appearance of skin.
The light weight, oil free formula effectively targets dull and dehydrated skin, restoring youthful elasticity whilst reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and blemishes. After applying the serum, you can expect skin to be more plump, smoother and glowingly hydrated. The serum can be used as a primer for makeup application.”
As well as all the features mentioned above, the product is vegan, cruelty and fragrance free too which is amazing. I used the serum in both my morning and my night routine. I applied it before my makeup and after my shower. Its recommended to apply it before you’re normal skincare routine, so I did just that. The first thing I noticed after a few days of using the serum was the smoothness of my skin, I kept wanting to touch my face all the time – but refrained from that as this is what usually sets me off into breakouts…
After around a week my skin felt and looked a lot healthier, and I definitely felt like I had the ‘glow’ which was stated. As for any acne scarring I have, I don’t feel its reduced this yet – but it has only been a couple of weeks. Any blemishes I had seemed to have disappeared and my breakouts seemed to have settled down.
Overall, I’m very happy with the serum and will be continuing to use it in my morning and night routine! I’ll leave a link to where you can find the serum here! I also took some photos of my skin before I started using the serum and then after, and I think you can definitely notice a different! (Please excuse the bare face…)
Let me know if you have any skincare favourites in the comments – I love trying out new products!
Thanks for reading!
Until next time…
