One of the perks of being a beauty blogger is getting to try lots of different products, some I would never have tried before all of this. I recently received 3 items from a company called Body Merry to review and I surprisingly fell in love with them. Like I will repurchase these with my own money love them. I received the Age Defense Eye Cream, the Pro-A Serum, and the Hyaluronic Dew Serum.
Let's start with my favorite of the three, the Hyaluronic Dew Serum. If you are like me, you're probably wondering what they frack hyaluronic is and why should you put it on your skin. Think of hyaluronic like a really good nap for your skin. It plumps it up, makes it look great, and gives it the goods it needs to keep looking good. Plus the serum is extra thick, which I think helps you get it onto where you need it without it dripping all over the place.
This is shocking but, seriously after about 2 days of using this I actually saw a difference. The "grumpy face" wrinkles on my forehead started fading, my skin felt great to the touch, and any blotchiness I had went away. This stuff is a miracle for your skin, and it smells really nice too! Like a frolic through a field of flowers. There is no downside to this stuff, and you can wear it under your makeup which is a huge plus. If you need a facial moisturizer but are afraid of breakouts then this is the stuff for you, I never had any breakouts while testing this product out. I'm calling this my holy grail skin serum.
I'm not "old" old (shut up Zach) but I've got my fair share of wrinkles already What can I say, I've lived a rough life. I've sporadically tried some anti-aging creams but have never pulled the trigger on the big guns, retinol. When Body Merry sent me some I figured it was about time I gave it a try. The Pro-A serum contains 2.5% retinol, hyaluronic acid, and green tea, which is a winning combination for skin boosting, wrinkle reducing goodness. Like the other serum, this is very thick which I prefer. The smell is odd, kind of like being in a corn field during a rain storm.
I always did this one at night (retinol can cause sun sensitivity so please use sunscreen if you wear it during the day. Or don't live in Oregon during the Fall.) and after about 2 days my deeper lines were plumping up and most of my fine lines were gone. I'm very impressed with how well it really worked, but I had a feeling the retinol would help at least a little bit. I just didn't know it would help as much as it did. Whether or not the effects are lasting are yet to be determined, I'll have to post an update in a month or so.
I've discovered that I am the Goldilocks of eye cream, none of them are just right. The Age Defense Eye Cream is great, but it just doesn't cover everything I need in an eye cream. If you want something just for wrinkles and signs of aging around your eyes this is a great one. It has the retinol and hyaluronic acid you need to plump up those wrinkles, plus a ton of other things to help rebuild you skin. If you are looking for something for dark circles or puffiness this won't do the trick I'm sad to say. I did like the packaging once I got use to it, the pump is very sensitive so you can end up with way more than you need if you aren't careful. It is a much larger bottle than most eye creams as well, clocking in at a whole fluid ounce.
The cream itself is white and absorbs pretty easily into the skin, never really left a residue feeling which was appreciated. The scent is very strong, I'll warn you now. I call it lemon pez, but it doesn't smell "chemical" just very sugary lemon. I could smell it as I went to sleep, which is probably my biggest complaint about this product.
In the end, I loved each of them for their own reasons and will continue to use them on a regular basis and will for sure be buying more of the two serums once I run out. If you are in the market for new serums or something to give your skin that push in the right direction I highly recommend checking these out.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
