Review | AminoGenesis Perfect Reflection anti-aging serum
AnimoGenesis say their Perfect Reflection serum is "the most advanced anti-aging serum available anywhere". Now, that’s quite some claim, so let’s take a look at the science bit, first. This contains:
- 4 powerful anti-oxidants (Vitamin A, C, D and CoQ10)
- 17 plant derived amino acids
All of this good stuff will help to repair sun damage, hydrate the skin, reduce the appearance of dark spots, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and make your skin firmer, smoother and more elastic. All of this fades into insignificance, though, when you consider the non-science bit:
It smells just like lemon cheesecake. No, really.
If nothing else, this is definitely one of the best smelling serums I’ve tried. As for the rest of the claims, well, I’ve been using it for a week now and so far I haven’t noticed any particular difference in the appearance of my skin, although I wouldn’t really have expected to in such a short period of time. I’ll be posting an update to this review in a few weeks time, then, but in the meantime, here’s what I can tell you so far…
Perfect Reflection is applied before your regular moisturisers, twice per day. The liquid comes in a pump action dispenser and one of the first things I discovered about this is that a very little goes a long way. The consistency is very light and runny, so a tiny drop will be enough to cover your entire face and neck. This is good news, I think, because although it costs $69, it will last a really long time, and you won’t have to scrimp on the application. I generally tend to be a little stingy with serums, purely because my regular one (Boots Protect and Perfect) doesn’t last very long, so I’ll try and make it last as long as possible by using small amounts and not bothering to apply it to my neck.
I don’t have that problem with Perfect Reflection, and it’s very easily absorbed – I applied some to my hand while writing this, and it had sunk in completely within a minute, leaving no trace of greasiness. As for whether it’ll erase my fine lines and make me look younger, well, that remains to be seen, but if you want to try it out for yourself, it’s $68 and you can buy it here.
