Green Keratin Hyaluronic C Facial Serum

I have bought a number of products from this company through amazon and so far not one has disappointed me. This is a highly concentrated facial serum and one of a number they make.

I bought these products at greatly reduced price through a site offering items reduced in return for reviews on amazon. They have recently changed the rues and now you no longer need to write a review and strangely the companies are responding by offering fewer products and making the deal less sweet!!

As a method of advertising it was great as I would never have bothered trying these products before ut having found them I have repurchased them.

~~~&&&~~ ABOUT GREEN KERATIN ~~~&&&~~~

I have never heard of this company before buying these through the reviewing site but now I have found them I have re purchased them as I have found them to be excellent quality.
The company first began to sell their natural skincare range in 2008 after Anderson Lira and fellow Co-Founder Glen Keeble began hand making skincare products for family and friends and met with great feedback.

“The idea was simple: to create effective organic skincare products out of the highest quality natural ingredients. Because, you only get out of your skin what you put into it, and your skin deserves the best.”
Their products are made with the highest quality, certified organic and natural ingredients. They promise their products are free from: parabens, Methylisothiazolinone, SLS & SLES, E.A, D.E.A, silicones and formaldehyde, artificial fragrances and artificial colourings.

Their products are handmade in a warehouse in London so a British brand which is always a plus for me.

~~~&&&~~~ ABOUT THIS SERUM~~~&&&~~~

As I mentioned I have had a number of serums from this company and they all vary slightly as does the packaging. I think they change the packing and formulae from time to time.
Mine happens to come in an airless hard plastic bottle with push pump dispenser so you cannot see the contents . This does mean you are surprised when it comes to the end which is a bit annoying but this does keep the product very fresh and uncontaminated from air or light.

The serum is cloudy creamy colour and reasonably thick, not watery like some serums but slightly thinner than a body lotion.
It has none of the nasties mentioned before – Phenoxyethanol, Alcohol Denat., Sulphates, Parabens, Propylene Glycol, Silicones, Artificial Fragrance or Colouring

The serum is 92% Organic, made in Britain, cruelty-free, suitable for Vegans and anyone who wants natural cruelty free face products that work.

~~~&&&~~~ MY EXPERIENCE AND VIEWS ~~~&&&~~~

I have been using serums prior to my moisturiser for some years now a do like to buy natural products which have not had any ingredients tested on animals too.
I also like the products to feel like they are doing something to my skin, if not actually making me look younger then at least holding back from any more lines and winkles developing too fast.

The ingredients in this are not only natural but are there because they are naturally good for helping improve the condition of the skin in some way.
This serum has vegan Hyaluronic Acid Concentrate. This has become one of the most included ingredients in ant ageing serums in the last few years and is sometimes referred to as “The Fountain of Youth”. This acid seems to attract and hold moisture in the skin and also helps to soften and smooth the skin.

The Vitamin C in this is Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate which is apparently : “A far more stable Vitamin C derivative that overcomes the oxidation problems associated with ascorbic acid”. Vitamin C is a great antioxidant.
It also has Frangipani Extract which is both refreshing and helps condition the skin and also smells great too.plumeria flower

Organic Thistle oil which is a natural source of linoleic acid or Omega-6 fatty acid which comes from the seeds of Safflower. This is good for skin conditioning properties but is not at all greasy making it a good one for those with oily, combination and large-pored skin types.

Organic Rose Flower Water which comes from the flowers of the Damask Rose is perfect for hydration and moisturising the skin while being cooling and refreshing.

Organic Jojoba Oil is known for being a great skin emollient and skin conditioner.
Vitamin E which is both an antioxidant and skin conditioner.

I always wash and cleanse my face night and morning and after that I apply my toner. I then apply whichever serum I am using and let it soak in for a few minutes before applying my moistuiser or facial oil and make up if I am wearing any.
I found this serum was really light and fresh feeling and soaked in very quickly. It smells fresh and pleasant, kind of light floral and cucumber – like. I used this morning and night and found it really effective and it left my skin feeling fresh and tighter looking so the lines were less evident.

It was easy to apply, not gredamasc 1asy or sticky at all and it slid on easily . I found I didn’t need a lot at all, one push down of the pump, to apply all over my face and neck. I was careful around my eyes but did apply it around my eyes as well and the skin around my eyes, underneath especially looked much firmer and less dark and sallow.
This is not a face lift so I was not expecting to look years younger and indeed I was right to have no expectations of that fact but the serum is a lovely light refreshing moisturiser that really did make my skin look better while I was using it.

I always use high quality natural products so was not expecting this to have dramatic effects but I did hope it would make my skin look fresher, feel calm and well nourished and I did just that.

~~~&&&~~~ WHERE TO BUY AND WHAT YOU GET ~~~&&&~~~

This comes in an airless plastic bottle which holds 30 ml of serum. On the Green Keratin site they sell this for £14.95 and on amazon they sell it for the same price and postage is free with Prime if you are a member.

~~~&&&~~~ RECOMMENDED? ~~~&&&~~~

Yes this is a lovely natural serum from an ethical British company that I have found to be nice to use and effective as well.

~~~~~~ ALL PACKED UP ~~~~~~
This product comes in a frosted glass jar with a plastic screw top lid. I do like jars as you can get every last bit out but you do have to be sure your fingers are clean to prevent contamination. You could use a small spatula too if you wanted to be extra careful.

The jar holds a good amount, 50 ml of the cream and costs £16.95 on both sites I mentioned.
I like the fact this is a glass jar as it is fully recyclable but if you keep your beauty products in the bathroom and have ceramic tiles then be careful not to drop it.

~~~~~~ MY VIEWS AND EXPERIENCE ~~~~~~
This moisturiser is a creamy white and quite a nice soft light cream yet it is rich and very moisturising.

Green Keratin say “ This ultra-hydrating, luxurious face cream helps improve firmness and elasticity, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Skin appears softer, smoother and more radiant.”
I have been using this for about six weeks and the jar is under half full now. I have found it a very nice and hydrating without making my face feel greasy or clogged with a heavy cream.

I still have my lines and wrinkles but they will always be there I fear and all I can do is stop them getting worse I think. My skin looks healthy and feels nice and soft yet firm not saggy.
The moisturiser has lots of great natural ingredients including the anti-aging and moisture-loving and smoothing vegan hyaluronic Acid which is sometimes called “The Fountain of Youth”.

Vitamin C in the form of Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate is a great anti oxidant.
A far more stable Vitamin C derivative that overcomes the oxidation problems associated with ascorbic acid. Anti-oxidant.
It also has Organic Apricot Oil which is rich in vitamins essential fatty acids and nutrients and helps to condition the skin and really helps with dry skin.

Vitamin E which is also an anti-oxidant and is also good for conditioning the skin
The organic frankincense oil is toning and invigorating so stimulated the skin giving it a healthy look.
It also has lovely organic rose geranium essential oil which re-balances the moisture levels in the skin and helps to refresh and revitalise the skin.

I use this as my day moisturiser and always apply this after cleansing my face, toning and using a serum. Some days that is all I do but on others I then apply my make up which sits well on this and doesn’t cause make up to lip or become uneven.
This has a pleasant scent, fresh and subtle which may be from the frankincense and rose geranium which are both essential oils I love.

This moisturiser is suitable for all skin types but they do say if irritation occurs then stop using it which is common sense I would think.
I am a more mature person and my skin is a combination and I have found this a great moisturiser as it nourishes my dry skin while not making my T zone greasy either. I love that this soaks into my skin really quickly and leaves my skin feeling nicely balanced and soft and smooth.

I always apply my moisturiser not only to all my face but also to my neck as well as that is exposed and needs moisturising as I think a saggy neck makes you look a lot older. This also feels good on my neck and soaks in there too.

I have sensitive skin but I have had no adverse reaction from using this moisturiser and the pot is almost finished now. I have been very pleased with how this leaves my skin looking and feeling and as I said it smells nice too.

I do like to use products that use natural ingredients where I can especially when they are effective and make my skin feel good.

I had not heard of this company before but I am very pleased I have found this as it a lovely light, effective and pleasant smelling moisturiser.
