Gallinée Youthful Serum.

Restore your complexion when applying the Gallinée Youthful Serum that contains Gallinée’s patented complex of prebiotics, probiotics and lactic acid. The skincare brand has a range of products suitable for all skincare types and is created from expert knowledge from a pharmacist and skincare specialist. Using their scientific expertise, the formulations contain high concentrations of active ingredients, present the same PH as the skin, while also supporting your skins microbiome (good bacteria) for a healthier functioning skin barrier.
The brightening and plumping serum contains 92% of natural origin ingredients to improve the signs of ageing, while also boosting +62% hydration after 8 hours. The fern prebiotics provide an instant lifting and firming sensation that can be felt on application, while the popular alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) lactic acid combats acne, wrinkles and other signs of ageing. Lactic acid is considered gentler and tolerated more by the skin because it offers more benefits then just exfoliation. It is important to remember to apply sunscreen (you should be using one anyway) even after 4 weeks of using any acid product as your skin will be overly sun sensitive.

Presented in a glass bottle accompanied with an eye dropper tool for easy dispensing, there are two ways you can use the serum. You can apply the water based serum to cleansed skin or add a few drops to your moisturiser for an added boost. Applying to your neck and working your way up to cover your whole face, the serum spreads efficiently when using your fingertips, before using your palms to press the serum into the skin for maximum absorption. The colour of the formulation is slightly cloudy and the consistency is thicker than your typical water based serum, which is perfect because you only need to use a small amount. You could apply the product after your current serum in your skincare routine if you like to layer, but you may experience a slight sticky feeling that soon disappears after 2 minutes when your serum products have absorbed. Proceeding with your usual moisturiser and sunscreen, the serum is regenerating, protecting and smoothing the skin throughout the day. You can apply to skin at night when its repairing and regenerating and is perfect to apply to skin before your retinol product, AHAs and BHA help products deliver their key ingredients because they remove the dead skin cells that can limit penetration and absorption. The complexion looks brighter with a uniformed skin tone and you will notice you will only need to use a little of your current skincare products because of the boost of hydration the serum delivers to the upper layers of the skin.
