I bought my first bottle of Solal C-Serum almost 2 years ago. I was suffering with really dry, dehydrated skin and one of the ladies in Dischem recommended it. Since the price was within the range I wanted to spend on a serum, I decided to try it out. I used a pea sized amount of the Solal C-Serum over my entire face nightly, waited for it to sink in, then applied my moisturiser. It helped my skin from feeling tight and flaking when I wore foundation. After months of use, I purchased my second bottle. Not long after that, I broke out with crazy hormonal acne after breastfeeding and decided to stop using it.
Fast forward to early 2016 when I developed oily skin. That doesn’t do it justice. When I was a essentially a walking greaseball. After my course of Roaccutane, the acne had subsided but the shine, slip and large pores were signs that the oils were still at bay. I struggled with foundations, primers and setting sprays to keep my makeup on for longer than just a few hours. I tried incorporating the Solal C-Serum into my skincare routine and it was an absolute mess. Back into the cupboard it went.
About a month ago I started noticing dry patches of skin on my cheeks and forehead. I know this happens since winter is coming around and I truly don’t drink a fraction of the amount of water I should be consuming. I guess now you could say I’m on the combination skin ride at the moment. So I began reaching for the Solal C-Serum whenever I felt a little dry or when I felt my makeup looked too patchy. I’m now back to using it every night and my skin has improved considerably. The dry patches are practically non-existent and the smile lines around my mouth have magically disappeared. This is the only anti-ageing product I’m using at the moment so I’m pretty sure it can’t be something else.
There’s a plethora of amazing ingredients packed into this little bottle. It’s also airless so the product holds it effectiveness until you’re ready to dispense it. The pump is also hygenic which I prefer for serums. I dislike having to dip my fingers or search for spatulas and such. The antioxidants protect the skin against daily pollution whilst boosting collagen production and reducing the visibility of wrinkles. It leaves a smooth, silky yet non-greasy feel to the face. It’s a weird texture to explain but it sinks in to moisturise while still feeling like an invisible barrier to protect the surface of the skin.
I think what I love most about this product is the fact that it’s a great anti-ageing starter for someone like me. There are no remarkably visible signs of ageing but we want to conceal minor imperfections and keep those wrinkles as far into the future as possible. It’s not too rich like most moisturisers for mature skins yet packs a punch of goodness. It’s lightweight and suited to people with dry or combination skin. It doesn’t make the skin oily but it doesn’t help in the fight against it either. It can be used a number of different ways and is safe to use during pregnancy. It’s also great for sensitive skin.
The Solal C-Serum retails for R389 for 30ml and can be purchased from Dischem and Red Square Beauty online. One bottle roughly lasts me about 2-3 months with nightly use. I really want to try more from this brand so if you have any suggestion let me know.
