One of the things I love about blogging is discovering new brands especially when they are on a smaller scale. Resibo is a Polish brand of cosmetics based on natural, carefully selected ingredients. They specialise in products made with a view to skin safety and respect for nature. A Vegan company using biodegradable packaging, they combine minimalism with maximum effectiveness at an affordable price without comprising quality, with their entire range being over 96% natural.
The brand consists of eight products. With their first product being the cleansing oil, follwed by the eye cream, nourishing cream, ultra moisturising cream, moisturising mist toner and micellar cleansing water.
I was kindly sent a bottle of Resibo's finest, the Smoothing Face Serum. A small bottle full of concentrated, natural ingredients with rejuvenating effects - a glass dropper, all packaged in a recycled oh-so-cute cylinder tube.
The Smoothing Face Serum AKA natural Botox in a bottle, is a concoction of powerful natural ingredients like Stoechiol - a butterfly lavender extract, that relieves muscle tension, prevents facial lines and smoothes the skin, stimulates skin to release beta-endorphins, relaxing and reducing existing wrinkles, with results visibly seen after 24 hours from first use. It is also perfect for all skin types especially skin with acne and acne scars.
Further standout ingredients include Lakesis – an extract of "crystal tears from Pistacia Lentiscus Tree - stimulates production of the youth protein. Skin regains density and looks fuller and firmer. Marula oil - a strong antioxidant that has regenerating, healing and anti-wrinkle effects, vegetable squalane - prevents moisture loss, restores skin tightness and smoothness and visibly reduces wrinkles and lastly high quality vitamin C - to brighten skin and prevent blemishes.
The consistency is quite thin and runny. It's subtle scent is empowering and calming, with lavender notes softly dancing on my senses when applied on skin. It blends as an oil and takes a few minutes to absorb. You only need 3-4 drops of the serum for the entire face and neck. No need to rub in, gently pat with your fingertips and then apply your moisturiser as usual. Even though it is an oil, skin is not left oily or greasy. Especially in the morning skin feels soft, supple and plump.
This is a oil serum I have never experienced before with results that are true. Frown lines were harder to see just after one use. I have hopes in seeing further improvements and this may be my new favourite serum.
The Smoothing Face Serum should last you at least 3 months or more and retails for $59.99. Resibo products are available online on their website. To know more or purchase click here.
