Living Nature's Firming Flax Serum

As the season change, so does the weather, with temperatures instantly dropping as rain and wind pick up. Just a few weeks ago I was still wearing sleeveless tops and sandals, but now I'm sure I'm not the only one wearing multiple layers to protect myself. However, my face isn't quite as easy to cover up and is easily exposed to the elements.

Regardless of age and skin type, facial skin is already more delicate than on other parts of your body; often turning dry, lacking firmness and elasticity. The result is the formation of unwanted fine lines and wrinkles as well as skin that lacks vitality and looks dull and tired. To counteract these issues, Living Nature has created Firming Flax Serum.

Harnessing the therapeutic properties of some of New Zealand's unique botanicals - such as Manuka Honey, Harake (the New Zealand Flax plant) and Rosehip - this natural face care serum aims to provide a vital boost of hydration and nourishment to pep-up your complexion as the seasons change. What's more, it promises to help add firmness and elasticity to facial skin, which in turn helps minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

When I saw the product I admit that the first thing I thought was that it was very small and wouldn't last long at all. At 13ml a bottle it isn't super tiny, but the packaging is compact and does make it very suitable to carry around in your handbag without adding extra weight and size to it. And actually, after several weeks of regular use, I've found that a little goes a long way and so the bottle is still plenty full.

The product is thin in consistency, but not runny, making it easy to spread a little bit over a large area of skin. It instantly absorbs, leaving my skin feeling not only more nourished than before application but also a little tighter. I don't have obvious lines on my face yet (knock on wood), and so I cannot observe how well the serum would work on those, but the firm feeling left after application is certainly promising.

Another positive characteristic of the serum is its lack of a distinct scent. I love a good orange blossom or rose scented lotion and often lather it generously on my skin, however the one place I don't want a very fragrant cream is on or near my face, so I was pleased that this product is almost scentless.

And while I cannot attest that using the serum regularly makes me look years younger, I like the nourishing qualities of the product and the way it makes my facial skin feel. It will definitely be an asset to my beauty regime this autumn.
