Korres Black Pine Serum

THE STORY:

Korres has launched a new anti-ageing, anti-wrinkle serum. Black Pine Serum is based on Black Pine extract – a rich source of polyphenols that helps to firm and tone the skin. It’s a thick serum that borders on being a light gel. It absorbs easily, sits well under any moisturiser and I used it in the morning (and at night when I remembered).

THE SCIENCE:

Stick with me – I found it a little complicated and have tried to really simplify it.

Connective tissue is constantly being renewed through protein synthesis and the partial degradation of those proteins by metalloproteinases (MMPs). Black Pine polyphenol has been shown to regulate MMPs thus helping to maintain skin tone and texture.

Hyaluronic acid – helps hydration

Black Tea – restores skin volume

Oat polysaccharides – skin firming and volume

Hexapeptide 11 – firms skin and increases elasticity

Soy fibres – boost collagen

And there’s a lot more that work in synergy to make this a super-serum.

THE VERDICT:

I like the texture, the feeling on my skin and I saw a real difference.

THE DETAILS:

£39 for 30ml
