When I recently bought a new sunscreen for my skin I got a little tube of this Lancaster Serum with DNA action complex, I had never heard of nor read about it and apparently it has been around for a few years so either underrated or just not so good.
So before even putting it on my face I was like “oh ok, I’ll try it but won’t like it for sure” the first time using it I detected some shimmer in the milky-pink liquid – immediate turn off! But oh wow did that change when I put it on my face because: instant sink-in plus instant hydration. Went to bed and found my skin really soft next morning so I made and ingredients-check which turned out to be not so great (full list below) : silicone heavy and alcohol high up the ingredient list but I also spotted some good stuff:
angelica root extract: anti inflammatory
citric acid: to balances pH of skin
coffee seed extract: antioxidant
plankton extract: moisture binding
punica granatum extract: antioxidant/ anti inflammatory
If you want to know more about ingredients in general I really like paulschoice.com/cosmetic-ingredient-dictionary a lot.
I started using it in the morning an also really liked it. It just works. My skin felt much more even, hydrated and less angry – just nice and smooth. This morning I pressed the lasts bits out of the little tube and miss it already so much that I am definitely going to buy the full size and try it on the long run! Isn’t the best way to see if you really, really like something if do you miss it when it’s empty? And yes, I do! Also I want to try the Vichy Aqualina Thermal Serum and do a comparison of the two.
