Before I left for a summer in New York, I stopped by Oh My Cream!, a concept store that sources high quality beauty gems that aren’t readily available in France. Interspersed among familiar brands easily available in the US, I discovered a few new companies I am really excited about.
One such company is Pai Skincare, an organic skincare company out of the UK crafted for highly reactive or sensitive skin. (ME!) The company states that its products are carefully formulated with ingredients with proven remedial and skins soothing properties and that they avoid harsh chemicals and alcohol.
I was looking for a product that would help with blemishes I have been battling. I focused my selection on natural skin care products that would be gentle on my skin. I also wanted a product that would easily integrate into my skincare regimen. The in-house esthetician at Oh My Cream ! suggested I try the Copaiba & Zinc Perfect Balance Blemish Serum.
Each night, I apply the concentrated serum to a freshly cleansed face. I apply a cream over the top if my skin feels tight and dry. Otherwise, it is recommended that you apply the serum alone. I have been using the product for three weeks and feel that I had notice subtle improvement in my skin tone and skin congestion.
The active ingredients:
- Copaiba: anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory with antioxidant properties all target persistent blemishes.
- Zinc: reduces skin shine, blackheads and congestions
- Hyaluronic Acid: deeply hydrating to ensure skin tone and suppleness
