Happy Monday, to kick off the new week, I want to talk about a product that’s currently not in my skincare routine, but one I’ve trialed out for a while. This is the Kueshi Nutrix Caviar Serum & Resveratrol, which I found in TK Maxx, for £7.99. I actually have two bottles, the second being one I picked up accidentally. I’ve tested this out as part of my night time routine for a few weeks, and the reason it’s not in my skincare routine anymore is so I can work through some other skincare products first that will expire before this one.
As the name of the product suggests, it is a serum, so if you’re going to use this product, it’s one that will fit in the serum or emulsion slot of your routine. The term “resveratrol” is new to me, but according to Paula’s Choice website, they discuss it as antioxidant that helps to protect and repair the skin against free radicals, and is described as a “superhero” for the skin. It’s also described to help reduce redness, which my skin sometimes struggles with on my cheeks.
The product itself also includes some claims, which are included on the box:
“Caviar is a powerful restorative due to its rich quality in vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, D, E and H, as well as phosphorus. It consists in the fat part of the triglycerides , sterols, phospholipids and several fatty acids, among which the lauric, myristic, palmitic, oleic, and linoleic acids, etc.
At the protein part, there are vitamins, amino acids and trace elements which are magnesium, iron, copper, zinc, cobalt, etc.
It contains 17 of the most important amino acids as arginine, serine, phenylalanine and tyrosine.
Therefore, the caviar is interesting for the treatment of aseptic skin, aging, dehydrated and impurities, mainly due to amino acids.
The pure resveratrol, has a unique antioxidant and rejuvenating action, prolonging the longevity of the cells naturally and delaying the signs of aged skin. Its rich texture based on natural ingredients, regenerates and redensifies the skin, filling in wrinkles and remodeling the facial contours.”
It’s quite a lot, and a lot of it is very science-y and intimidating to read. But the last paragraph is where I’m going to refer to for my experiences. As I’m in my mid-twenties, I don’t really have much in terms of wrinkles. However, I do have oily-sensitive skin, and one of the major symptoms I battle with is that my skin tends to be dehydrated. This leads to my skin being excessively oily, and increases my skin’s sensitivity to allergens.
The ingredients list also mentions major ingredients including caviar resveratrol, olive oil, avocado oil, sweet almond oil and Vitamin E. These are well known for being good for most skin types, although dry skin types will especially appreciate these ingredients.
The packaging itself consists of a heavy glass bottle with a plastic pump and hard plastic cap. The bottle has some weight to it, so it’s not one I’d travel with, and being made of glass, I would be concerned about it shattering. The pump is easy to work with, although I suggest tipping it to face downwards to prevent the serum from flying everywhere when you press the pump to dispense the product.
The serum itself is fairly lightweight and easy to smooth over my skin. I typically use 2-3 pumps, rub my fingers and palms together and pat it over my face and into my skin. There is a scent to it, which I’m struggling to describe, but my best attempt is that it’s a mix of herbal and medicinal at the same time. It’s not an unpleasant scent for me, and not one I notice when the product is applied to my skin.
At first use, I didn’t really notice a difference, aside from being adequately moisturising. After a couple of weeks of use though, I notice my skin feels more plump and full of life. My skin isn’t what I would consider ‘dull’ most of the time, but having taken this out of my night time routine to use up other products, I do notice that my skin isn’t quite as rejuvenated as when I was using it regularly.
Overall I’m really like this product, and although I’m not actively using it at the moment, I can’t wait to have a slot in my night time skin care routine again as time away from it has made it more obvious how much I miss it. It’s also a relief that accidentally buying a backup isn’t feeling like a mistake as I would definitely put this on my repurchase list.
Thank you for taking time to read my blog post, it means a lot to me to receive your support. I hope you are happy and healthy, and I’ll speak to you again soon.
