Ok, so it’s not exactly news that I’m all about hydration when it comes to skincare. Especially when we’re in the middle of winter. So, when I got the opportunity to try out Australian brand Black Chicken, I absolutely jumped at the opportunity! So, when a green tube arrived with the postman, I was more than a little intrigued!
The brand is Australian made and owned, and all the ingredients are naturally based and toxin free. They’re all about making your skin as good as possible without adding anything unnecessary or unnatural, so I thought that the face serum was the perfect place to start. Packaged in a dark glass bottle, it’s got a bit of an old-school apothecary feel. The ingredients list for the serum is like a who’s who of great skincare; Apricot Kernel Oil, Jojoba Oil, Evening Primrose Oil and Neroli Essential Oil are all in there.
The serum itself is an absolute dream come true if you suffer from dry skin. It has a thicker texture than any other serum I’ve tried, in fact, it feels more like an oil to apply. You can use the Love Your Face serum either morning or night (or both if your skin is feeling particularly parched) and you only need to massage a few drops into freshly cleansed skin. My face absolutely drinks the serum up, and I’ve noticed that my skin texture has improved dramatically, even just using the serum a few nights in the row. It also cuts down on redness, which means I don’t need to use as much foundation the morning after. I’ve fallen absolutely in love with the serum, and can’t wait to try other products from the range!
Black Chicken Love Your Face Serum is priced at £66 and is available here.
