Dermalogica’s newest addition to the AGE Smart line, Phyto-Nature Firming Serum, claims to “give 5 years back”. Phyto-Nature Firming Serum targets premature skin aging resulting from our environment. As Dermalogica puts it, “your exposome (environment + lifestyle) adds years to your skin’s visible age”.
While regular skin treatments and proper home care can do wonders for skin aging, our environment and lifestyle can do just as much harm. Other factors that affect skin aging include excess sun, poor sleep quality or lack of sleep, unhealthy diet, and smoking.
When Dermalogica released Phyto-Nature Firming Serum, I was surprised at the price. However, it made more sense after reading about the product. Phyto-Nature Firming Serum is actually two serums in one. To clarify, it’s a “dual-phased formula” which takes effect in two phases, the lifting phase and the firming phase. There are actually two compartments in the product’s bottle, so the two serums are separate until use.
What’s in it:
Phyto-Nature Firming Serum doesn’t serve as a replacement to other anti-aging products, but rather, as a complement. It can be used under any retinol product as well as with Dermalogica’s Power Rich moisturizer. Phyto-Nature Firming Serum is currently the company’s most advanced serum.
Phyto-Nature Firming Serum is an innovative product, fitting for such an environmentally conscious community. This product truly represents Dermalogica’s values as a cruelty-free company that strives to use naturally occurring and safe ingredients. After 1 application, it “doubles skin’s luminosity and minimizes the appearance of fine lines”. After 4 weeks, it “reduces visible wrinkles”.
