DERMALOGICA: Phyto-Nature Firming Serum


A few months ago I was kindly sent this NEW Dermalogica firming serum that I have been waiting to try since its release in Australia. I have been a loyal fan of the brand since I came across special cleansing gel and daily microfoliant a few years back. Ever since then my love for incorporating Dermalogica has expanded and I hope to continue using their products in my day-to-day skincare routines. Continue reading to learn more about this product.

Phyto-Nature Firming Serum 40ml $220*

The phyto-nature firming serum is described as a dual-phase anti-ageing serum combined with highly-active botanicals with biomimetic peptide technology that claims to visibly firm, lift and revitalise skin. It is suited for mature skin types or anyone experiencing the following skin concerns: fine lines, wrinkles, dullness, uneven texture, loss of firmness and elasticity. It’s key ingredients include: biomimetic peptides (help to form and reinforce skin defences), Camu Camu (helps to prolong radiance), Moroccan rockrose extract (neutralises collagen-damaging free radicals), Madagascar green coffee bean (decrease appearance of fine lines and wrinkles), and hyaluronic acid (hydrates skin and offers filler effect).

For 6 weeks I used this firming serum exclusively in my morning and evening skincare regimes. My skincare concerns at the time included: enlarged pores, light surface fine lines on my forehead, sun spots, uneven skin tone and uneven skin texture. I incorporated this serum as soon as I received it as I was too excited to begin trialing it. I must say that on the first use, I was pleasantly surprised at how beautiful it applied on my face and neck. The serum is lightweight, transparent and absorbed quickly, leaving no sticky or tacky feel. My skin instantly felt plumped, it left a beautiful but subtle luminosity and skin appeared hydrated.

Overnight, I felt that my skin and neck areas appeared slightly firmed but not tight that it restricted from any sort of movement. Within a month of use, I was shockingly surprised just how addictive I’ve become using this serum for the basis that my enlarged pores had minimised, my skin texture appeared much more smoother and softer to touch. Overall, skin tone is slightly more balanced and the fine surface lines on my forehead although not completely banished but appeared blurred to a degree. I don’t have wrinkles yet so I can’t confirm, but for how my skin has changed over the last several months using a range of products in rotation have certainly improved the outlook of my skin today. I have hardly worn makeup in these several months all due to the skincare products I have found to help minimise my skin concerns. I felt that incorporating Dermalogica’s age smart phyto-nature firming serum have become one of the few facial serums I have thoroughly enjoyed through product trialing.
