Keep Cool Soothe Serum Review

This post contains affiliate links. Product provided by Keep Cool US.

There are certain things I miss about my teens and twenties, but having a skincare routine without serums isn’t one of them. A good serum can make all the difference in how my combination skin looks and feels.

I’ve been experimenting with Keep Cool Soothe Serum for a few weeks. It’s available on Keep Cool US Site (save 25% on your order with code kbeautyhobbit25), Amazon (save with code kbhobbit10, which works on everything sold by Credithink), and YesStyle (save with reward code KBHOBBIT).

The serum is 66% bamboo water to soothe the skin, 4.5% centella asiatica to help with irritation and redness, plus hyaluronic acid to plump. A full list of the ingredients is available at the end of the review.

  • How to use: Apply after toner

  • Gently pat in for absorption

  • Lock in with moisturizer (don’t forget SPF if using in the morning)

The brand says this can be mixed with foundation to make it more buildable, but I have not tried that.

The serum is clear and light; I do not notice a scent (if there is one, it’s so mild that I do not detect it). My skin absorbs this pretty quickly without a sticky residue.

My impressions

This is a lovely basic hydrating/soothing serum. I like keeping products like this on hand in case my skin is dry or irritated. I enjoy using Keep Cool Soothe Serum on nights I apply a retinoid, because it hydrates the skin nicely and doesn’t have any potentially irritating actives (patch testing is always a good idea).

While this product would be just fine to use in the morning, I mostly reach for it at night, simply because I have more time to devote to skincare in the evenings. I love the pump dispenser - it’s more convenient for me than the typical pipettes that most companies use. I see a noticeable difference in how plump my skin feels plus a reduction in redness. Overall, a great product that is worth looking into for most skin types (as long as you do not have an individual intolerance to one of the ingredients).
