AMW Reviews: Vitacreme Anti-Ageing Serum

Remember my first Vitacreme B12 product review?  It's called the Vitacreme B12 Regenerative Cream and little did I know, they also came in serum form for anti-ageing!  

Vitacreme B12 Serum Anti-Age
Vitacreme B12 says ---
Enriched with Acetyl Hexapeptide-3, an potent anti-aging agent, blended with a high concentration of Vitamin B12, Hyaluronic Acid and Asiatic acid, it delivers various benefits, including anti-aging, anti-wrinkle, whitening, hydrating and firming. With this all-round treatment, skin is restored to a youthful-looking appearance.
This gel type care is fresh and readily-absorbed to perform the greatest efficacy.

Pros
  • Squeeze type tube with pointed tip making it easy to control the amount of product needed.
  • Gets absorbed into the skin quickly.
  • Leaves a soft, moisturized feel immediately after first use.
  • Manufactured and expiration date clearly printed on box.
  • Immediately blurs out lines and lessens dryness.
  • Non-greasy. 
  • No breakouts nor allergic reactions on me.
  • My skin doesn't look and feel dry anymore!

Cons
  • If you dislike fragrance on serums, this particular product has a floral scent but disappears less than a minute.
  • Sensitive skin may react due to the presence of Parfum in the ingredients.
  • Price
Overall
This product is medium pink shade of serum is a bit watery by texture which can get absorbed into the skin easily.  It doesn't leave a greasy or oily-feel and feels very light upon application.  The anti-ageing effect, I can't tell for now but I can immediately enjoy the softer, more supple feel of my skin.

Keep in mind that skincare products need TIME to really see its effectiveness and results.

Tips
  • Unsure if this product would work for you?  Do a patch test.
  • Once signs of irritations occur, stop usage immediately.
  • Use a tiny amount to start with, press a small pea-size of product and gently  massage into the skin starting at the driest part.
  • Once product gets absorbed into the skin, you may continue with your regular moisturizer
  • This product is good for 6 months upon opening.  Mark the product with the date.
  • Do not forget to apply your neck area. 
  • Though it was written in the instruction portion to use day and night, I prefer to start using the product once a day until your skin gets used to the additional "potent" product.
Will I repurchase?
May or may not.  Serum is never an integral part of my skincare regimen. It's a luxury :)

To whom do I recommend this to?
Girls and boys who are used to injecting a "serum" into their regimen.  This is best used for people above the age of 25, who needs the anti-ageing properties. 

Can be used by normal, dry, oily and combination skin.  Sensitive skin may need to do a patch test.

Where to purchase and how much?
Exclusively available in Watsons (SM Megamall, SM North EDSA, SM Cubao, SM Makati and SM Mall of Asia) for Php2,400 (approx $55.80) per tube.

Which serum brand do you use and is it effective?


Once in a while, I include the usage of serum as part of my "night time" routine especially on days I feel my skin gets really dry and needs the boost of moisture.  I'm halfway done with Vitacreme B12 Serum Anti-Age and so far, I'm happy with it.

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!
