I’m a sucker for packaging. Simple, elegant + cute font. So immediately I was a fan of my first, FIRSTBASE SERUM EXPERIENCE.
Next up, smell. I am that person that sticks her nose (not like gross) into most products, because regardless of what they promise – I need to love the scent. Nailed it. It’s like citrus + earthy, but super light. VERY enjoyable.
As a veteran in skincare, I still get excited about new products. Especially all-natural and multi-purpose products that do double duty. Let’s be real, I’m exhausted at the end of the day so I like to keep before bed routine to 10 < steps.
Double Dose serum is great because it has the duality of vitamin c and hyaluronic acid (anyone over 25 needs to begin USING THIS).
Not sure what any of this means?
NOURISH FROM WITHIN WITH FIRSTBASE SERUM
VITAMIN C – brightening, hydrating (huge for ageing), promotes collagen (again 30+ ladies + gents) and evens out skin tones.
HYALURONIC ACID – helps reduce fine lines, and blue dark spots and helps skin appear more glowy!
I asked the creators, April and Beth, founders of FirstBase Skincare, to share with us – what sets them apart….
With the addition of the lotus flower, Double Dose will also balance skin PH and won’t contribute to acne or clogged pores.
AND MY TOP 5 things to look for in any skincare are also met!
🍊 Organic ingredients.
🍊 Vegan (your skin will absorb easier when plant-based)
🐰 Cruelty-free – this means our furry friends aren’t involved in any process or testing!!!
❌ Synthetic fragrance – which can mean up to 1000s of extra ingredients they do not have to list
❌ Parabens, sulfates, silicone or phthalates!! (Hint if you can’t say or spell it, probably shouldn’t be on your skin or in your mouth)
