REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: Baré Alchemy Serums






It is always a goal of mine to discover unique and innovative products to introduce my readers to.  Especially brands with products that stand out from the ordinary.  Products that are not only extremely safe and healthy for you and your body, but products that contain ingredients that are unexpected and most likely not ingredients you were even aware of or that you can benefit from.  Take Baré Alchemy serums for example.  They are water based and infused with the precious Kakadu Plum, a traditional secret of the native Australians, the fruit that has the highest natural antioxidants on the planet. It is quickly absorbed by the skin imparting nutrition at the cellular level promoting cell repair and hydration leaving your face feeling soft and supple. These ingredients are mild and safe even for the delicate skin of children.

Have I got your attention?  I sure hope so, I mean seriously, have you ever used a skin care product that contains Kakadu Plum in it?  Probably not I suspect....... Please read on, I am going to introduce you to 3 Baré Alchemy serums and then at the end of the review is a giveaway where there will be 3 winners!  I will be giving away 3 Baré Alchemy Serums, one for each skin type!  Let me introduce Baré Alchemy to you:

MY REVIEW



{Photo by Joanna Smith}


There are three Baré Alchemy Serums, one for each skin type:  Normal, Oily and Dry/Sensitive.  These precious natural serums will nourish, soothe and protect your skin to keep it looking beautiful and radiant.  I am so thrilled to be able to include Baré Alchemy Serums in my Summer 2017 Head to Toe Glamour Guide because I love the idea of wearing a serum on my skin in the warm weather heat as opposed to a moisturizer.  My skin doesn't need as much moisture in the warm weather.  What it needs is something more lightweight, but still a product that has antioxidants, peptides, hyaluronic acid and Vitamin C that will have a dramatic and swift effect on the radiance of my skin by brightening, exfoliating and hydrating my skin.

You can use Baré Alchemy Serums by themselves or you can follow up with your regular moisturizer once you apply the serum.  It all depends on what you feel is best for your skin type.  I have been wearing the serums by themselves throughout my testing process and that is all my skin needs.  Here are the details about each serum type:

MY THOUGHTS:

First I want to say that Baré products are animal cruelty free, and free from parabens, SLS, talc, silicon, siloxanes, triclosans, GMO and animal derived products.  This is important to me, and for me to want you all to know.

And, with all 3 serums, you use them by applying your Baré serum to a cleansed face, neck and décolletage. Use morning and night, alone or before applying moisturizing products.

All the Baré serums come housed in beautiful frosted glass bottles.  They look so pretty on your vanity or night table.  The protect ambrosia serum for normal skin is very light weight in texture and just about 3-4 drops of the serum is all my skin needs.  I massaged the serum using circular motions onto my skin gently and it is immediately absorbed.  I love the scent of this serum, it is very refreshing and pleasant, you can literally smell the kakadu plum, caviar lime and combretum flower!  A very natural organic aroma!

I found that this serum worked very effectively to unblock my pores and regulate moisture, and it was all the hydration my skin needed.  I did not follow up with my normal moisturizer.  I am very pleased with how the product feels on my face, and how my skin appears once the product has been applied.  My skin appeared healthier, more dewy, it looked less dull and lifeless!  My skin looks more luminous and smoother after just using this serum for a few days.   If your skin type is normal, then I highly recommend this serum to add the essential nutrition your skin really does need!

MY THOUGHTS:

I have been using the ambrosia soothe serum for dry/sensitive skin the same way as with the serum for normal skin.  Because my skin does tend to be dry and it is definitely sensitive, this is the serum that best matches my skin type.  I always mention that I have mild rosacea and this serum really does calm and soothe my skin, and effectively helps to minimize the redness that my skin tends to have.

I have been using about 3-4 drops of the serum and that is all I need to adequately cover my skin.  The consistency and texture of this serum is more like a very light weight lotion, it is creamy and thin, not thick and is like a drink of water for my skin.  My skin seems to love it, because it soaks right into it.  The serum adds radiance and a glow to my skin that was missing.  I love it!

This serum smells very pleasant too, aloe vera, pichia ferment, rose hips, argan and almond oils all combined create a very unique aroma!  You sense from the moment you massage the serum onto your skin that something magical is going to happen.  Your skin becomes more even toned, less dry and fine lines and wrinkles less prominent!  The anti-inflammatory benefits from the pichia extract give the skin a healed appearance.  Also, the tasman pepper berry extract also is an instant skin soother.  That is what makes this serum so desirable to me, as someone who suffers from sensitive skin.  I highly recommend this serum to anyone who struggles with dry and sensitive skin!

MY THOUGHTS:

I do not have oily skin, however, I did test out this serum for the purposes of this review.  Because all 3 of the serums are jammed pack full of antioxidants, botanicals and vitamins, I know all the serums are going to nourish and treat my skin!

The ambrosia cleanse serum for oily skin is also a serum that has the texture and consistency of a light weight lotion.  Just 3-4 drops of it and you are good to go!  It has kakadu plum, lilly pilly and tea tree in it, natural sources of the highest vitamin C and antioxidants on the planet!  Your skin is going to love this.  It also contains mastic resin, argan, chaulmoogra and manuka oils to cleanse and nourish your skin.  These ingredients comprise a very earthy aroma to the serum.  I love putting all these global botanicals on my skin, it feels good, and my skin looks healthier overall!

If your skin is prone to breakouts and/or blackheads, the anti-bacterial and anti-fungal ingredients in this serum will help improve on those issues.

Even though I do not have oily skin, I plan to use this serum off and on all summer long on those days when I sweat a lot and my skin feels oilier than usual.  In my opinion, a person can easily incorporate all 3 Baré serums into their skin care routine because your skin is constantly evolving and some days it is more normal and other days it can be drier or oilier, depending on the season, your lifestyle, and maybe even your hormones!


This concludes my review.
