Well, lately I've realized that I spend the majority of my beauty budget on face, while the rest of the body gets forgotten. After talking about that with the lovely @iaiaisfallinginlove I've bought #bellaaura
Gravity Reverse Body Serum
This body serum claims to deeply moisturize, restore skin firmness, smoothen skin texture, and stimulate the production of high-quality collagen.
The key ingredient in this serum is the Bulbine Frutescens leaf juice. The plant is native to South Africa and has been used traditionally as remedy for numerous skin diseases (blemishes, cuts, scars, burns, rashes, eczeme…) because it has soothing, calming effects and supports skin repair processes. According to the literature survey, Bulbine Frutescens leaf juice has been reported to improve the overall appearance of the skin by different modes of action (it enhances the skin barrier properties by speeding up lipid biosynthesis, improves elasticity and tensile strength of the skin, reduces water loss of the skin subcutaneous tissue, enhance the skin cell metabolism).
Moreover, the serum formula is enriched with kaolin and safflower oleosomes to gentle exfoliate and boost deep tissue absorption.
Honestly speaking, the overall ingredients and benefits are really promising!
I've been using this serum for 2 weeks now (3 - 4 time per week). Unlike body moisturizers that can feel heavy on the skin, this serum is a lightweight emulsion and it absorbs quickly.
I apply it on my arms and legs leaving them nicely moisturized without feeling greasy. It's early to speak about results, I don't struggle with cellulite or evident stretch marks (luckily for me, I get it from my mom😊), I just looking for a product which helps to tighten and improve firmness and elasticity.
So, it takes time and consistent application to see hopefully some changes in my skin texture. I'll keep you posted on that 😉
Summer is just around the corner.... I drink a lot of water, about 3 months ago I've started running again after my pregnancy and I've started a more consistent body care routine... How do you prep your body for summer? I'd love to hear your tips😍
Hope you're having a great day 💕
