I had realised that my face was getting very dry, and I'd told myself several times that I really needed to return to more regularly using a suitable moisturiser. As I'm now approaching my mid 40's, I can use all the help I can get.
Oz Naturals asked me if I'd like to review their range, and it really was the push I needed to focus on myself for a few minutes each day. They asked me to review the 20% Vitamin C Serum, 5% Hyaluronic Acid Serum and Super Youth Eye Gel. These are used alongside your regular moisturiser.
Oz Naturals don't test on animals, and use only natural and organic ingredients. They're vegan, parbens free, sulphate, lanolin and gluten free - and I have used them every day for the past 3 weeks.
The 20% Vitamin C Serum contains not only Vitamin C, but also Amino and Hyaluronic Acid. This acts as an anti-oxidant and claims to brighten and protect your skin. A thin, watery gel, which is not very slightly oily, you need only tiny amounts to cover your entire face and decolletage.
The 5% Hyaluronic Acid Serum + Vitamin C hydrates and plumps, so it helps with all the fine lines. This is a thicker non-oily gel, which is very easy to place where you want it. Again, you need a very tiny amount as it spreads well.
The Super Youth Eye Gel is exactly as you'd expect from an eye gel, with an aim to reduce puffiness, dark circles and wrinkles. This is a thick gel and you need a really tiny amount. One pump of the dispenser gives me twice as much as I could possibly use all around my eyes.
And so, did it work? Still attempting to master the art of the selfie, I did actually manage to look at camera a couple of times....well, nearly....
The natural lighting is different - I actually took 3 attempts at the 'after' photos in exactly the same spot and time of day, and this was the nearest I could get.
My skin was really quite red before I started using the creams, dry and a little sore on my forehead, and I did have big dark circles under my eyes. These have all improved massively. The imperfection marks on my face are also reduced, and my eyes definitely look less tired.
My skin looks brighter, and I'm a lot happier with it.
For evening out skin tone the Oz Naturals products have worked incredibly well. I am incredibly happy with the look and feel of my skin - and I don't permanently look like I've just walked miles in a blizzard! My fine lines and wrinkles are reduced, but not in an amazing way. For me it's the dark circles, scars and red patches that have really disappeared.
