It Cosmetics just launched a selection of Serums that are designed to target and combat the most common skin concerns like fine lines, dullness, pores, and dark spots. I have been a huge believer in concentrated serums to treat skincare concerns and I was super excited to find these new serums come from a brand that I trust and a brand that has always impressed me with its skincare and beauty launches all the time.
I was introduced to It Cosmetics during my blogging period from the brand itself by their best selling and award-winning Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream that was back in 2017 and I was immediately impressed with their selection of skincare and beauty products that I got to test they offered. The brand has dramatically grown since then with such a great selection of beauty products. I was really honoured that I was one of the many bloggers that got to find the press samples ahead of its launch date to try and see the results.
Each serum is designed with two mean components to work together to effectively treat and bring out maximum results. I also find they’ve been priced very well for what you get compare to many other well-known brands.
Here I have the details of the entire Bye Bye Serums and yes I’ve tried them all and I have seen and huge results on my skin texture and appearance for the last 4 weeks of use. Here are the details + how to use them effectively on your skincare routine.
This is a serum with 1.5% hyaluronic acid and a peptide-vitamin B5 blend to visibly plump skin and smooth lines in just 2 weeks. I have used quite a lot of Hyaluronic Acid yet there are only a few that works incredibly on the skin and this one is one of them. I absolutely love how this serum is formulated with a combination of ingredients like a peptide + vitamin B5 that visibly and effectively smooths out the fine lines and wrinkles in a minimum period of time.
How to Use: Hyaluronic Acid is best to use on damp skin, it just helps penetrate deeper into the skin and adds more hydration. I personally like to use essence or a facial setting spray before application to help the skin get well hydrated. As much as it’s important to use it on damp skin it is important to lock the hydration with a nice moisturizer. Any good moisturizer will help you to seal the hydration for a good amount of them.
This is a serum that works against pores. This is formulated with 10% glycolic acid to gently exfoliate skin plus hyaluronic acid to visibly minimize pores and adds plumpness to the skin. Both of these two ingredients are formulated together for fact that glycolic acid tends to dry out the skin while hyaluronic acid boosts the skin’s hydateration level to normalize skin for much better results. This formulation works great on oily + combinations skin, I also found it works nicely on combination + dry skin as well since the formulation carries Hyaluronic Acid, so it balances out the skin’s texture while it keeps up with its hydration level. If you have larger pores with dry skin, I would suggest only apply it to the affected area to treat pores.
How to Use: It is important to apply Glycolic Acid to the areas of the face that are not too thin like under the eye area and lips. It’s also important to use a nice rich moisturizer after Glycolic Acid as the AHA can be drying out the skin. I say it’s more important to pay attention to those with dry skin, especially during the fall/winter months. I would definitely wear my SPF. Never layer glycolic acid with any other acid skin care products or those carrying acid ingredients.
This serum is formulated with 4% niacinamide and 1% ethyl vitamin C and both are two mean ingredients for brighter and more radiant-looking skin. Niacinamide is one of the ingredients that is the best way to use to brighten pigmentation, especially pigmentation caused by acne. It’s much safer and more effective in evening out the skin than any other chemical ingredients. I have been in Niacinamide for more than 5 months now with other formulas but I find this serum has better offerings.
How to Use: The formula can be used all over the complexion but it’s important to wear a good amount of sunscreen when using Niacinamide. Although the formula is quite safe, it’s important to avoid the under-eye areas.
Last but not least one of my favourite serums from the collection is the Bye Bye Dullness 15% Vitamin C Serum. I have used Vitamin C serum as young as 14 years old and it has always given my skin that glow. This is a concentrated Derma Serum for dull skin. You can really see and feel the vitamin C experience with this serum, it’s is pure Vitamine C!! The minute I got my hands on it I started using this in my nightly skincare routine and within two weeks I saw huge results and made me WOW.
Usually, my dark spots and frickles get quite dark during the summer season but it’s now more than 4 weeks that I have been using this serum and my skin never looked this bright and glowy before. I can literally go out without any makeup, knowing my skin is glowing. I absolutely love the combination of Vitamine C + Vitamine E – my skin looks nourished and glowing at the same time.
How to Use: You can add Vitamin C serum to your AM and PM skincare routine easily. Yet it’s always the best to use it in the AM with a good Hyaluronic Acid for glow and plumpness. It can be layered with almost all your skincare products except Glycolic Acid. You can not layer Glycolic Acid and Vitamin C serum for fact that it will cause skin irritation and will damage skin cells. Yet you can use them in different skincare routines.
I hope you find this post helpful, I have been testing these serums for more than 4 weeks now and I have seen huge results on my skin. If I have to pick my favourite from this collection for my skin type then it would be Bye Bye Dullness (Vitamine C) and Bye Bye Lines (Hyaluronic Acid). Both work great on my skin, I have been constantly been using both for the past 4 weeks and my skin is GLOWING.
