I need another step to my skincare regime like I need a hole in the head, but when anything drops through the door that claims to clear up my face I have to give it a go. Introducing Silver Serum* from Skin Shop, a new facial serum that claims to reduce inflammation and beat acne with a powerful little ingredient, microsilver.
A lot of acne treatments can be really harsh on the skin (trust me, I’ve tried nearly all of them!) and can really dry you out. They go with a sweeping approach by killing off all the bad bacteria along with all the good too which can be detrimental to acne sufferers. Our skin does actually contain good bacteria – think bifidus regularis and other ridiculous ‘scientific terms’ from digestion adverts – which is needed to help regenerate and regulate so stripping that away can have a negative effect, but Skin Shop’s new Silver Serum helps destroy the bad bacteria that can cause acne without touching the good, clever!
I apply it in the morning after cleansing to help protect my skin for the day and it’s been working a treat! It’s moisturising without being too thick and leaves your skin feeling quite bright and clean and with a handy 50ml bottle I think it may be a good product to take on holiday with me to apply on the plane. At just under £13 it’s a bargain product with a little going quite a long way – I would buy it again although I think it’s going to be a while before I have to. I really didn’t think I’d be too fussed by this little bottle but I actually really like it – definitely one to try for the acne prone out there especially with it’s impressive clinical trial results. Over 90% of participants came off their topical acne medication after a month using Silver Serum, a bold claim but for £13 one you might want to test out for yourself!
