One of those brands I've heard so much about over the years, but never had a chance to try is Pelactiv. Pelactiv is an Australian brand that incorporates the purest Australian native plant extracts in combination with the prime active ingredient, Lactic Acid. Today I am putting the Pelactiv Vita C+ Rapid C Serum + AHA to the test.  

This is a serum that contains a high concentration of Vitamin C, 15% to be exact made from a combination of L-absorbic acid and Kakadu Plum, along with AHA and BHA to help treat any visible signs of ageing. The L-absorbic acid works below the skin to also protect it from UVA and UVB rays and stimulate new collagen production, while AHA's from milk extract and BHA's help exfoliate and gently buff away dead skin cells, while hydrating the skin to make it clear and radiant, with pigmentation reduced and the skin looking more youthful.

The serum is to be used at night after cleansing and toning, and three small drops is more than sufficient of the concentrated serum to spread across your face, and neck, avoiding the sensitive eye area. Once fully absorbed, you'll need to follow with you usual moisturiser.

The Pelactiv Vita C+ Rapid C Serum + AHA comes in a cute little silver pump bottle, and the golden serum has a slightly odd scent that lucky does fade rather quickly. The serum has a light consistency, and it absorbs quickly into the skin, making it feel soft and moisturised, and in no way oily or greasy.

Already after a few days use I was in love with this serum, as I could clearly see the difference it made to my skin. The gentle exfoliation is clearly making my skin feel and look smoother, so small lines seem to be slightly minimised too, and it is also helping both keep blemishes at bay and clear up existing ones faster. And in general it is just making my skin look more even and glowing. And with continued use, the results gets better and better, and even after a bad nights sleep, this serum helps my skin look more radiant and alive in the mornings.

So overall I have really enjoyed adding this Pelactiv Vita C+ Rapid C Serum + AHA from Pelactiv to my skincare routine, and I will be sad the day I finish the bottle!
