Full Review of Hylamide Booster C25 and The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5%+EGCG
NOTE: This is NOT a sponsored post. I bought products on my own and sharing my own experience.
Before I became obsessed with makeup products, I have always been a skincare fanatic. I would always research the most effective way to achieve great skin while battling with the UAE weather. I feel that the combination of Dubai’s extreme heat, super cold AC, sandstorms and work stress really takeS its toll on my skin so I need products that are really effective.
At the same time, it’s very important to discover products that will actually be able to cure these issues without emptying our bank accounts.
SEARCHING FOR THE RIGHT PRODUCT
I was searching for serums that will improve my skin texture and tone, plus lighten my dark circles in my eye area. After very careful research I found two products from TheOrdinary.com website. The first one is Hylamide Booster C25 (USD 45 for 30 ml) and the second one is The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG (USD10.70 for 30ml).
IMPORTANT SHOPPING TIP: Depending on your location, the cost of these two products may vary. In the US, the price is much cheaper, but international price (applicable to UAE) is what I indicated above.
The Hylamide Booster C25 promises to offer a fast-tracked approach to a visibly radiant, healthy-looking skin tone. While the Caffeine Solution is meant to reduce dark circles in the eye area.
PURCHASE AND DELIVERY
I was not familiar with these products prior to researching them but one good point is that the products are very affordable compared to other serums available in the market. I purchased both products from the website because they deliver worldwide. The transaction was smooth and I received the product on my doorstep in 6 days.
HOW TO USE
I used the Caffeine Solution daily, morning and night. I used one drop of the solution for each eye area. When I applied the solution, I felt a slight cooling sensation on my skin.
For the Hylamide Booster, I use it morning and night, at least four times a week. During the first few days of usage my skin felt dry so I had to alternate the days of using it. I already have dry skin so I make sure to put on moisturizer after putting on the serum. But eventually, my skin got better and with the help of a moisturizer, my skin was able to adapt to the product. I also used a very mild exfoliating product as to not stress my skin.
Even if both products had really raving reviews, my expectations were not very high because as they say you have to try it to believe it. But after only 2 months, I was surprised to see remarkable results. Then, after 3 months (or 90 days) from my first use, the results are really unbelievable.
My skin has visibly improved. My skin texture is more plump looking and my skin tone looks more even-colored. The fine laugh lines on my face were reduced, you can barely see them now.
But the most amazing result is the improvement in the dark pigmentation in my eye area. After only 3 months, the dark areas lightened dramatically. Before, I had to use tons of color correcting concealers to even out these dark circles but now, this problem area is almost gone.The overall effect of my skin also looks less stressed and has developed a natural pinkish glow like that of a baby.
