S5 Skincare Renew Serum

I've been testing out S5 Renew Serum (£52)* over the last few weeks. The serum is 99% natural, Vegan, free from parabens, sulphates, petrochemicals, silicones, synthetic dyes and artificial fragrance. The range is certified by EcoCert and made in the UK.

The serum packaged in a recyclable glass bottle with a pipette. As the serum is quite thick the pipette is useless after a few uses meaning you have to pour it out of the bottle onto your palm so I don't think the current packaging really works. I think I'd prefer if it was packaged in a airless pump.

The S5 Skincare range is designed to solve skin problems naturally using the strength of ingredients found in the most extreme parts of the planet such as Antarctica, the Wadi Desert in Egypt and the mountains of Tibet. The bioactives used in the products help to to mimimise pollution, UV, chemical irritation and environmental damage.

There are 5 treatment serums in the range which help to treat blemishes, sensitivity, dryness, hyperpigmentation and premature ageing. The serums are designed to be mixed and matched to deal with how your skin feels at that particular moment.

The S5 Renew Serum* has been formulated to target fine lines and wrinkles smoothing, plumping and firming the skin. Antarctic glycoproteins help to reduce wrinkle depth and increase collagen production. Alpine stem cells contain high levels of antioxidants and hyaluronic acid. Botanical peptides firm and smooth.

To use: blend a few drops into your moisturiser before applying to a cleansed face and neck. The serum can also be applied as a separate layer.

I've found the serum easy to apply as it absorbs quickly and it has an instantly firming effect on application (which I like!) It plumps out fine lines and wrinkles making them look softer.  The scent of the serum is slightly floral and very pleasant. Despite the packaging this one's a keeper!

I now want to try more from the range so will pick up a few sample sizes to try.
