I am so impressed and absolutely obsessed with Serum 11! It make my skincare routine so much simpler and I’ve noticed the brightening and firming effects with time but also probably within like the first week of using. Not to mention it’s such a beautiful product to have out on your bathroom counter or vanity. I hope to try some of the other products soon!!! (I was gifted this product to try through Beautytap but will be repurchasing with my own money, I truly love it.)
Thyrst Serum 11 comes in a beautiful packaging . I almost did not want to open it because it was so pretty. It gave me kinda of a fragrance bottle vibe. I was looking forward to trying this product since its packed with all kinds of great skin care ingredients like Vitamin B3, C, E, peptides, Hyaluronic acid, Salicylic acid, Bakuchiol which a is a natural Retinol and Algae. I mean how can you not want to try this right?! Well unfortunately for me this serum was way to sticky . I found that a bit strange since it has a lightweight texture. I tried it several times and each time I applied it to my face I felt like I had a heavy thick syrup on even applying the minimum amount. After an hour it still felt sticky and tacky on my skin. It just did not absorb the way I would of liked it to. It has a light scent however it wasn't to pleasant. Although it's loaded with some fantastic ingredients I'm going to have to pass on this serum.
Thank you for your review- Serum 11 can feel tacky for some people which is why we recommend applying our Moisturizer 12 and Oil 10 after use. This will give your skin a much more hydrated, dewy sensation. For best results, The Complete Set is recommended which comes with all of the products above + Exfoliant 07 so that the complexion is primed to absorb more ingredients and receive maximum benefits.
I incorporated the Serum 11 into my evening skincare routine. It is a golden orange serum packed with Vitamin A, B3, C, Salicylic and Hyaluronic Acid in addition to Bakuchiol which is a retinol alternative. It fights wrinkles, clarifies and refines pores, brightens and tones skin, improves tightness and elasticity, reduces sunspots, and infuses skin with deep hydration. It also enhances the skins rate of exfoliation for a smoother, brighter, and more radiant complexion. The results were quite noticeable after just a couple weeks of use. I noticed reduced sun spots, reduced skin damage, and clearer even skin tone. I prefer to use it only as a night time treatment on my face, neck, and décolletage because it is thicker than other serums and very potent. It is a good anti aging serum. The serum absorbs quickly into the skin leaving skin feeling very nourished.
Thyrst Beauty Company's Serum 11 presents itself so splendidly, I almost hated to open the elegant packaging. The serum bottle itself is also elegant--that said, it was almost amazing to me that the application process for this serum is accomplished with a simple eyedropper bottle top. The serum itself contains retinol (I've always been a big fan of retinol,) salicylic acid, Vitamin C and niacinamide, so it is serious skincare, indeed. The texture is rich, making the serum an absolute pleasure to apply. I found the fragrance to be elusively lovely and somehow quite comforting when the serum is applied. After two weeks of daily use, I found that it did, indeed, tighten and firm my skin and also seemed to lighten some of my so-called brown "age" spots. That's a worthwhile enough reason to use this serum forever, but combined with the tightening and firming effects, this is one skin product that will definitely remain as a major player in my daily skincare routine.
I am using Thyrst Serum 11 more than 2 weeks and would like to share with you my experience. Packaging is very cute and unique; and have soft protection base to prevent container from damage. I love the color and design of the carton, also good to know that we can recycle after finish to use. Serum have pleasant smell (like lemon, cranberry with note of lavender and rosemary), light and fresh. I apply this serum 2 time per day on face , neck and chest after cleaning and before moisturizer. I live in San Francisco and we all have lot of sun. I hope that this serum treat my sun damaged skin and reduce brown spots. This product have for this problems Encapsulated Retinol, Salicylic Acid and Vitamin C. I want to tell you that I apply sun block protection every day before to go out because this ingredients could increase skin reaction to the sun. I feel that my skin more hydrated because of Hyaluronic Acid, Algae and Vitamin E in this serum. And this product have lot of peptides, my skin looks more tight and firm. I love this serum. My skin is sensitive and I am planning to use 1 month, then would do the break in few months to prevent reaction on Retinol or Vitamin C. If you have sensitive skin I recommend to start to use only at night with 1 drop, because sometimes less is better.
