Last summer, Bloomingdale’s sent a giant box of men’s skin care products for me (aka my boyfriend, David) to test. When testing skin care products, it’s essential to do it thoroughly and over time, which is why I am only now writing about the winner of the box: the amazing Lab Series Future Rescue Repair Serum.
This Lab Series serum is basically the only product you need. It does everything — it moisturizes, evens skin tone, retexturizes, and tames dark circles and wrinkles. David says, “It makes me look like I’ve gotten beauty rest when I definitely haven’t.”
I can always tell the days he forgot to use the serum. I notice that his face is overall dehydrated and his nose becomes visibly dry. But the kicker is that when he finished the Lab Series and moved on to test the next product, he was flabbergasted by the difference. He said his wrinkles were more prominent and he felt like the product was useless after the glory of Lab Series.
Let me now explain that David is not the kind of man who would pursue fancy skin care. He was literally using body lotion on his face before I had him test these products. But, he is a changed man now. After the disappointment of the last product test, he became dedicated to Lab Series (he is on his second bottle).
Which now brings me to my personal experience with the Lab Series serum. I was at David’s house and realized I had none of my skin care items (gasp!). I am crazy about my skin care, so I was a little stressed (Read about my skin care regime here). But I realized there was no harm in trying the Lab Series myself and let me just tell you – wow. My regular retinol serum has been discontinued, and instead of taking the time to research a new “female” product, I myself will be switching to Lab Series Future Rescue Repair Serum. Sure, I will briefly smell a bit masculine, but it is a very light scent that disappears after the serum dries.
My blog posts are my honest and personal opinion. Sometimes my content includes products sent from companies or PR firms. In this case, I was sent samples from Bloomingdale’s. If I am sent something that is unimpressive I don’t write about it.
