I’ve had my share of skin woes, but ever since I started working, dullness has been a constant battle. Between getting less than eight glasses of water a day to weekly sleep deprivation, I’ve had to work a wee bit harder to ward off sallow skin. So when I was invited to try Yves Rocher’s newest brightening serum, my curiosity was piqued.
I’m a morena (though on the lighter side of the spectrum) so anything that promises instant brightening effects only means having a freakishly white cast over my brown skin. Not cute. I pumped a bit of the serum and spread it over my left hand. I was deflated when I saw nothing spectacular to report, that is, until I saw my right hand. My left hand was visibly brighter, smoother, and soft to the touch, shaming my withered right hand. On my face was a different story, I fell asleep watching way too many Mad Men episodes and had roughly four hours of sleep. I awoke bloodshot and haggard, my skin awaiting the TLC it missed from the previous night. After smoothing the serum over my face I was impressed, my skin drank it in immediately and I was left looking….well, radiant.
So, my dear Internet friends, I’ve found a new pick-me-up, and it looks like we’re going to go steady. I’ve broken up with dullness and decided to hunker down with luminous, lit-from-within skin!
