Jordan Samuel Skin The Antioxidant Serum – Reviewed
The Jordan Samuel Skin Antioxidant Serum is everything I never knew I needed.
I struggle with using vitamin c topically, but have wanted a targeted antioxidant as a part of my AM routine for some time now. I could never find a formula that ticked all my boxes- It needed to appeal to me, work with the rest of my routine and give results.
Don’t get me wrong- I love vitamin c. It works well and delivers great results on most people, but we definitely have an unrequited love.
As much as I love the instant glow & protection I get, I always find the breakouts and sensitivity that often follow are rarely worth it. My favourites are no surprise, well formulated complete treatments by way of DDG and Paula’s Choice. I keep these on hand, but largely move away from Vitamin C formulas.
But being topically sensitive shouldn’t mean I miss out on antioxidant protection from free radicals!
Jordan Samuel’s Italian Collection, including The Antioxidant Serum
Enter Jordan Samuel.
He’s only gone and made EXACTLY what I was looking for. An lightweight, oil free, glow inducing antioxidant serum. I think this is in my routine for the long run.
As part of his Italian Collection, inspired by the Mediterranean. The serum uses 5 different antioxidants in the way of resveratrol, green tea extract, pomegranate juice, olive fruit extract and grapeseed extract. Whilst these ingredients aren’t new, this formula feels so modern and is a pleasure to use.
For anyone who is familiar with the Paula’s Choice BHA liquid- a product made for oily and blemish prone skin. It can often feel oily due to the solvent/humectant they use. That is exactly the case here! The texture is like a dry oil (without the oil).
Though antioxidant protection isn’t something that is visible on the skin immediately I am confident that I have an extra layer of protection on my skin, in addition to the instant gratification. This doesn’t brighten the skin in the same way A 30% vitamin C would, but it’s not claiming to & isn’t as sensitising either. Think slow and steady. You will however see an immediate hydration and glow while you wait- which is always nice!
When we had warmer weather last summer I was cleansing, applying this and SPF (Jordan and I both love Supergoop! PLAY) and that was me done for the day.
