After a month in Spain and England where I was drinking wine daily, loading up on way too much sodium (fine hams and cheeses, anyone?) and not sleeping enough, my skin looked horrible. Seriously. This was the roughest my skin had looked in a while. Throw in sitting in the sun for hours on Estepona’s pretty beaches, and my skin looked like a lunar landscape. When I got home, I immediately reached for my favourite brightening serum.
I looked closely at my skin and noticed that I had some dark spots, along with unevenness on my face. I also needed to curb the little zits that took residence on my forehead, further making my skin look dull and lifeless.
The Face Shop’s Yehwadam Pure Brightening Serum has been my go-to for clearing up such problems. It’s fine formulation is geared towards brightening skin first and foremost. In addition, it helps to reduce fine lines, pigmentation, dark spots and dull skin tone. That right there pretty much described my post-Europe face.
Yehwadam Pure Brightening Serum is pretty fancy. It contains pearl powder! Yeah – you read that right. The pearl powder helps to reflect light offering a beautiful glow.
My oil glands were on overdrive after sitting under the sun for too long and I constantly looked greasy. I had to park my heavy moisturizer and face oils for a bit as they just felt too heavy. This serum though has a really nice and light moisturizing quality. In fact, for the first couple of weeks after returning from my trip, I used it as a moisturizer.
Note: Yehwadam has a fresh, floral scent. I know some of you prefer unscented products. I did notice that the floral scented eventually went way after about 30 mins or so.
I’ve now been home from Europe for almost three weeks and I feel like my skin has recovered. The greasies are gone, my skin is more even, the few dark spots have lightened considerably and my skin feels and looks glowy thanks to this serum.
