Serums are the rock stars of Korean beauty and skincare - they pack a powerful concentration of active ingredients to target various skin concerns. This Elizavecca Witch Piggy Hell Pore Control Hyaluronic Acid 97% serum tightens enlarged pores while hydrating the skin. It's available on eBay and Amazon.
The clear liquid serum comes in a glass bottle with a convenient dropper.
Hyaluronic Acid - sodium hyaluronate attracts and holds moisture better than any other natural or synthetic polymer. It’s not abrasive like exfoliant-type acids and is completely safe to use in the summer. It doesn’t increase skin’s photo sensitivity (sensitivity to light). In basic terms, hyaluronic acid attracts environmental moisture to the skin.
Niacinamide - vitamin B3 that visibly tightens pores, improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, evens out the skin tone, and is safe in the summer (doesn’t cause sensitivity to sunlight).
Arginine - an amino acid that speeds up healing, reduces inflammation and irritation, and works as an antioxidant while hydrating the skin (by binding to water). Arginine helps the other products penetrate deeper and work more effectively by improving circulation.
Adenosine - a yeast derived anti-aging, soothing and restoring agent suitable for all skin types. It is capable of increasing the levels of collagen and elastin, and therefore making the skin appear smoother and younger. Adenosine is especially effective in the eye area (crow’s feet) and can also reduce swelling/puffiness.
Allantoin - a skin conditioning and protecting agent
How to use:
Apply a few drops to the face and neck after cleanser and toner, lightly pat to aid absorption
Follow with the rest of your routine (lotion, cream, etc)
Can be used morning and night.
The serum is made without these controversial/harmful ingredients: Parabens, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Triclosan, PEG, Silicones, Sulfates, Formaldehyde, Coal Tar, Formaldehyde-releasers, MIT, Talc, TEA, Dye, Mineral Oil, Alcohol.
I’m a fan of a good hyaluronic acid serum. It really is something that all skin types can benefit from. My combination skin (oily t-zone, dry-to-normal cheeks) gets very oily if it’s dehydrated, so I try to stay on top of that, especially during the hot summers with drying air conditioning. I liked this serum a lot. It’s light, liquid but thicker than water, and absorbs quickly without a residue. If there’s any stickiness at all, it disappears when I apply lotion and the rest of my skincare. The fragrance is present but is very light. Elizavecca products can have very strong smells, thankfully this one does not. I also appreciate the short ingredients list free of toxic elements. It's available on eBay and Amazon.
I’ve had good results with the serum. My skin is supple and hydrated without being sticky or oily. I can’t speak much about the pores - I don’t have big pore issues in the first place - but they do seem to be on their best behavior as well. Overall, it’s a good, affordable product. And, of course, the packaging makes me giggle.
I bought this product on 0.8L
