I’m not going to lie – I love the name of this product. How can you get any better than LOVE LIFE SKIN? Plus it’s the facial product that I need in my skincare regimen — SERUM! What I received from LOVE LIFE SKIN is their INTENSIVE RECOVERY SERUM and I couldn’t wait to use it. I think a facial serum is a necessity for my skin. Ever since I started incorporating them on a daily basis I’ve noticed a vast difference in the look and feel of my face.
INTENSIVE RECOVERY SERUM is a very silky fragrance free product that glides on my face and absorbs quickly. It’s great for soothing skin and helping to moisturize it. If you have very dry and/or delicate skin then this is a serum you’ll want. And the price for this ($30) is very reasonable in this world of crazy skincare prizes.
While I don’t exactly know what Recovery Elixir 31 is they tell me that it’s a potent blend of natural of natural botanical extracts, antioxidants and moisturizing agents that absorb quickly to help repair and restore damaged skin. And I believe them (see the long list of ingredients at the very bottom of the review).
This white silky serum feels great on my skin and a little goes a long way. I use less than you see in my swatch for my entire face. It absorbs quickly so that I can move on with more skincare. I’ve been using this for close to two months so it’s been used with a lot of different brands and types of product. With a tinted moisturizer like the Algenist Repairing Tint & Radiance Moisturizer or a CC Cream from a brand like IT Cosmetics, I don’t need to add extra moisturizer. With a liquid foundation I’ll use the moisturizer of the week/month and an SPF product. Nothing interferes with this serum and nothing makes it ball up.
LOVE LIFE SKIN was developed in collaboration with a cancer patient going through treatment who was also in the beauty industry and doctors who were interested in helping patients with the dehydration caused by chemo and radiation. A chemist was added to this mix and Love Life Skin was born. Their goal is to have a skincare line to address the condition of dehydrated, sensitive skin. If the rest of the line is like the Intensive Recovery Serum then they’ve succeeded.
I’m happy to have found a paraben free, sulfate free serum that loves my skin. If you aren’t sure about this then a suggestion would be to try their Loving Life sample kit ($30) that contains Refreshing Creamy Cleanser ( 1.0 fl. oz. / 30 ml ) LL Cream Radiance Moisturizer ( 1.0 fl. oz. / 30 ml ) Restorative Night Cream ( 0.5 fl. oz. / 15 ml ) Revitalizing Eye Cream ( 0.17 fl. oz / 5 ml ) Intensive Recovery Serum Sachet ( 0.03 oz / 1 ml )
Are you using a serum on your face? Which one? If it’s not Intensive Recovery System maybe it should be. — Marcia
