New In SKN-RG | The Bunny Friendly Evolution Alpha Serum

SKN-RG’s ethos is one which I can fully get behind: visible proven results via clean beauty. Their Evolution Alpha serum launches on Monday 1st April, so I’m here to give you a weeks notice in case you wanted to be first in line!

SKN-RG | The Brand

SKN-RG ingredients are a level up from natural, with all products bragging clean beauty status. That means no known toxins or ingredients that have been linked to harmful health effects are in the formula. Their products are also Vegan Society and Soil Association organic approved and Leaping Bunny Cruelty-Free certified. You have to admit, that’s impressive.

Although I’m not vegan myself, I follow a few brilliant vegan bloggers like the lovely Glow Steady and definitely see it as a bonus when it comes to beauty.

Quanta technology uses light and sound to supercharge herbal extracts. This turns product into energy in order to overcome signs of fatigue, stress and ageing. SKN-RG = SKIN ENERGY.


SKN-RG Serum

The Product | Evolution Alpha Serum

Designed to prevent photo ageing, reduce dark circles and pigmentation and provide a lifting experience, it promises a lot. It also claims to harness the natural properties of plankton to shield skin from harmful blue light UVA and UVB rays. What I’m perhaps most impressed by though is the claim that it encapsulates pollutants, entrapping them rather than absorbing them into the skin. This allows them to simply be washed away at the end of the day, reducing the chance of breakouts.

The serum is a concentrated spa formula so SKN-RG recommends that a little goes a long way. I’ve tried applying it to both dry and damp skin and like Lisa, I prefer the latter. The serum sinks into the skin pretty quickly so the little extra moisture just allows for a more even coverage. I keep it in the bathroom instead of on my dresser and apply almost immediately after washing my face with NEEK cleanser.

Unfortunately, there’s no way I can speak for whether the product really has shielded me from pollutants and harmful blue light. I can, however, report that I’m impressed by what changes I have picked up on. The product provides my skin with a natural soft focus appearance, almost like a very subtle real-life filter. It also appears to brighten and applied before moisturiser, provides a lovely base for makeup.


The Verdict

The serum will be launched at an introductory offer of £65 instead of the usual £75 for 15ml. That seems a little steep, but its worth remembering that this is an advanced formula in a spa concentration. A little really does go a long way. The price also reflects the brands’ various awards, approvals, certifications and use of advanced technology within skincare. I’m extremely torn over whether I’ll be repurchasing this as two of the, arguably, most impressive benefits aren’t measurable outside of a lab. I do trust the benefits, but visibly seeing them would allow me to justify the price point a little easier.

    Yay for their products being Vegan – I’m personally not a Vegan but it does make me happy when I see a skincare/makeup product is vegan or cruelty free.

    That’s great to hear that a little goes a long way – it means you get to have the product for longer instead of It being done really quickly! I usually keep my serum in the bathroom as well though I did hear that the humidity in the bathroom can have a negative effect on skincare products but haven’t seen anything solid on it just yet!

    I personally use First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Hydrating Serum at night and it makes my skin really smooth the next day if you’re looking to branch out on Serums 🙂

    Sometimes it’s worth paying a higher price tag for products that actually work. I’ve spent thousands on cheaper alternatives that don’t quite do the job! This sounds like a great product and a great investment for your skin! Thank you for sharing xxx

    The benefits that this serum promotes sound absolutely wonderful but I can completely understand why you’re a little hesitant to repurchase as I’m also someone that takes things at surface value a lot. I like to see visible results within ideally a month or sometimes even quicker to justify spending any money let alone forking out! Despite that, the serum looks and sounds like a beautiful product and a fix for fatigue, ageing and stress sounds like a dream to me!

      Exactly! I have definitely seen visible results from it, but £75 for 15ml is pushing what I’d typically spend I must admit. It really is wonderful, I’ll have to see how long it lasts and make a decision once I’m out- no doubt I’ll feature it in a product empties at some point x

    With pleasure I am discovering the effectiveness of the serums that I find extremely ideal to use in the summer because they are lighter.

    I would love to try this! I like the idea that it protects the skin from harmful environmental toxins (even if you can’t really prove it). I love that what you can see makes such a difference, too.

    Vegan products are definitely a big push! I’m loving that companies are FINALLY considering the environmental depletion and the well being of animals. I never understood the whole animal testing thing, it’s so vile and really breaks my heart 🙁 The product sounds super refreshing and I had no idea Lisa used it…must be a winning product 😀

      I’m loving it too- it really gets to me too that companies are still allowing animal testing when there’s just no need. I think Lisa & I were both gifted it for the same campaign, she got her review out a little earlier than I did though haha! x
