A tall drink of water for your skin!

Instagram is really the death of my dear wallet! I first chanced upon Jordan Samuel Skin Hydrate Serum when I kept seeing it in the skincare routine of my favourite beauty bloggers on IG. When I went online to search for reviews of this product, there were so many positive comments on it so I took a chance on a relatively unknown indie skincare brand and purchased 2 bottles of it. Before I tell you more about this product, let’s take a look at its ingredients.

Ingredients

Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice *Organic, Vegetable Glycerin *Organic, Hyaluronic Acid, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Xanthan gum, Gluconolactone, Tamarindus Indica (Tamarind) Fruit Extract, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Passiflora Incarnata (Passion flower) Extract, Acetyl Hexapeptide-51 Amide, Sodium Benzoate, Salix Nigra (Willow) Bark Extract *Organic

How does the Jordan Samuel Skin Hydrate Serum fare?

As stated right in the product’s name itself, Jordan Samuel Skin Hydrate Serum is a hydrating serum. It’s formulated with hyaluronic acid, stabilised Vitamin C, and hexapeptides combined with cucumber, tamarind, and passion flower extracts, to provide a big dose of dewy moisture to your skin. I think that it works in a similar fashion to the Pestle & Mortar Pure Hyaluronic Serum in that it really floods my skin with moisture without any stickiness. Instead, it sinks into my skin pretty fast, leaving it smooth and hydrated. It also doesn’t have any silicones in it so I can pretty much layer any other serum over it without “rolling” or “flaking”. I took a big whiff of this product and couldn’t discern any smell to it too. I really like this product and I’ll keep it in my skincare stash to rotate with my other hydrating serums. The only thing which you need to note is that it contains willow bark extract (which is a mild BHA) so if your skin is ultra sensitive, please look elsewhere.

If you want to know what I think about it as compared to the Pestle & Mortar’s hydrating serum, I actually prefer the one from Pestle & Mortar a tiny bit more. To me, their results are rather comparable. However, the Pestle & Mortar one sinks into my skin just a smidgen bit faster and feels “cleaner” to use, as it were. But both are absolutely beautiful hydrating serums that delivers results fast!

Where can you find it?

I bought it from their official website and they do ship worldwide.

It retails at US$29 (30 ml sized).

Thank you for reading!
