It’s true, I need an anti-aging serum. I admit it. But guess what – so do you! It’s never too early to start a skincare regimen that will keep your skin youthful looking. Michael Todd True Organics has created several products in the Knu line that are for those of us that have dry skin or need some help with firming, lifting and tightening. The original product in this Knu line is the Knu Anti-Aging Face Cream and now comes Knu Anti-Aging Serum.
I’ve been using the Knu Anti-Aging Serum for the last 4 months and enjoying it immensely. This serum contains the best ingredients from the Michael Todd True Organics company. The KNU line is an expensive line but well worth it considering what it does for your skin. The ingredients in this Knu Serum are pretty incredible. Here it is right from the source: “Like a reset button for the skin, this ultrarich anti-age serum transforms skin on contact with Michael Todd’s now famous formulation for immediate face-saving firming, lift and tightening. Made with 70% organic ingredients synergistically combined with a unique combination of Matrixul 3000, Syn-Coll, Epidermal Growth Factor, DMAE, Alpha Hydroxy Acid, Snail Serum, Arbutin and L-Arginine and other clinically proven ingredients known for their powerful skin regenerating properties.”
The more you read about high end skincare, the more you’ll see ingredients like snail serum (or snail secretion) that might make you squeamish; but there’s a lot of testing and research that goes into a product that uses these ingredients – it’s interesting to read about the effects of it. I won’t go into all the ingredients they use since you can read about them yourself on their website, but the more I read the more I realize why my skin has been drinking this up.
As you can see the serum itself is a thin liquid that looks almost watery. The consistency is loose but there is some substance to it. The best thing is that it’s not the least bit sticky. I find I need just one drop for my entire face, two if I remember to use it on my neck. A little goes a long way. There’s a slight herbal fragrance that dissipates very quickly. I rarely even notice it any more. I start with this every day as the first step in my skincare, next is moisturizer, then a primer, and last SPF. It sounds like a lot but nothing is heavy so my skin looks natural.
The end result is that my face is more hydrated, I’m not showing those darned age lines, and I feel better about myself. I wish I could bath in this since I need that all over! My advice is to sign up for the Michael Todd True Organics website to get their newsletters. They have a lot of specials that are found through these newsletters. I’ve found Michael Todd products on Hautelook and some of the sites like Groupon too. If any of the Knu products show up that’s a great time to buy.
Michael Todd’s line of organic and cruelty free products has impressed me more with each product I’ve had the opportunity to try. Knu Anti-Aging Face Lift Serum is the top of the line, it doesn’t get much better than this. — Marcia
