Mad Hippie (product review)


It`s no secret that i`m more than average concerned about my looks (not in a shallow way of course)
I`ve used creams,potions and lotions since i was 16.(I can thank my mother for  that.)
The desire to look young and beautiful is as old as time(no pun
And i`m just as guilty of wanting it as anyone ....

So my review is of 2 Mad Hippie serums.

Mad Hippie Vitamin A serum:

Vitamin A Serum | Mad Hippie

This anti wrinkle serum is just awesome!!
It contains 0.3% Retinyl Retinoate , a new form of vitamin A that is 2x more bioavailable than retinol,and also more stable.causing less skin irritation.
It activates the production of collagen in the skin, lightly exfoliates the skin by enhancing cellular turnover.
The packet suggest that one only use it every second day until the skin is used to it.

when i first started using this serum, i was actually a little sceptical, i`d heard that vitamin A (retinol to be exact) could mess up my skin.
No need to say,i pictured the most terrible!
But i suppose if the dose is too high,it can be damaging. (too much of a good thing can be bad)

So, when i first applied this serum, it had a tingling sensation, and almost immediately my skin had a glow about it.
I`ve used it for over a month, and i`m very pleased with it. The wrinkle between my brows has actually faded a bit.
But the main result is that my skin is smoother and even.
I have less buildup in my pores (i.e blackheads etc)
I  use this serum as a night serum, as retinol/retinyl can cause sun sensitivity.

This serum contains lots of the good stuff,such as antioxidants,peptides,AHA, and none of the bad stuff,such as SLS, Parabens, synthetic fragrance.

Mad Hippie Vitamin C serum:

Vitamin C Serum | Mad Hippie

This is my day serum, and like the Vitamin A serum, its great a great for anti age.
But it`s more daylight friendly,i.e it doesn`t irritate skin,so it can be used during the day.
I can`t say that i`ve notices as much an effect from this serum as the Vitamin A serum,
Maybe because i can`t feel or see the same immediate result.
But it`s definitely good.
My skin is less dry, and skin color is more even, smooth and soft.
Perhaps it`s the combination of the two serums that does the trick.
I will definitely buy this serum again.

The list of skin loving ingredients is long, but i thought i`d share some.
 Vitamin C to enhance collagen Production, the antioxidant helps heal sun damage,and also tighten
 the skin.
Hyaluronic Acid, plump and smooth the skin by retaining also enhance collagen production.
