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.

    Oh, I was so excited to see what you thought of this serum too (thank you so much for the shout out/link BTW, very kind). I think the technology behind this product is absolutely amazing, and while I agree, it’s hard to measure all of the claims, I loved it. In fact, I’m still using mine which is nearly 2 months on from first application so, like you, I’m quite tempted to buy it when it launches. Great review and beautiful photos as always, Soph! x

    I also love hearing about vegan beauty products, I’m not vegan myself but it’s pretty amazing to see all of these products really thinking about what’s going into them and how they’re tested. The serum sounds pretty impressive, it does seem quite expensive, but I feel like it can be worth spending more money on beauty products if you know they’re longer lasting, works better, and all round better in quality, of course, that isn’t always the case though!

      It’s a definite bonus isn’t it?! I totally agree, skincare is something I’ve always been comfortable investing in but to be honest I don’t think I’ve ever spent more than around £50 on one item so I’m still debating it haha! x

    Sounds like a great serum – especially the vegan part!
    I’m only getting started with serums as I haven’t tried out that much before but I guess in my late 20s its more than time now 😉
