3 New Skin Care Serums from AVEDA that are Absolutely Incredible! The Intaglio Salon Point Ruston

Updated: Feb 23, 2022

Clean by creation, performance by plant power! This piece will review 3 new skin care serums from AVEDA that are absolutely incredible! These products are botanical kinetics™ intense hydrator, botanical kinetics™ instant luminizer, and botanical kinetics™ pore refiner. We will start with AVEDA’s botanical kinetics™ intense hydrator.

Botanical kinetics™ intense hydrator is a lightweight, fast-absorbing serum powered by a fusion of cactus fruit stem cells and plant-derived hyaluronic acid that instantly restores your skin's moisture.

This serum is silicone free, non-acnegenic (denotes a skin-care product or cosmetic that is specially formulated so as not to cause acne or blocked pores), and dermatologist tested. It helps plump up your skin and immediately doubles your skin's hydration. It is the drink that your skin has been looking for! It's instantly going to hydrate your skin, help replenish moisture, and make your skin feel supple; soft and flexible without tightness!

Botanical kinetics™ intense hydrator helps restore your skin's optimum moisture levels and it also helps to repair the protective lipid layer in the barrier to your skin which helps your skin retain its moisture. Use this after cleansing; morning and/or evening and before you put on your moisturizers and any of the other serums you are using for the day. This goes on first so that it can thoroughly absorb into your skin. It comes in a dropper and is very easy to use.

It has a nice minty green color that helps cancel out a little bit of that redness. It also creates a nice hydrated dewy barrier for other skincare products and makeup applications and provides a real easy clean foundation to use so that your makeup glides on nice and smooth or if you are not wearing any, it makes it very easy to apply your moisturizers and other products for the day.

Botanical kinetics™ intense hydrator is for all skin types and its long-lasting formula will leave your skin replenished all day!

The next product I want to share with you is AVEDA’s botanical kinetics™ luminizer. Okay, full disclosure here. Before you reach for your Webster’s, “luminizer” is not a real word and only exists in the world of cosmetics, but it is only a matter of time as the beauty world is teeming with new products, technology and techniques.

So, what does luminizer mean? It means that instantly your skin is going to look more radiant as soon as you apply this product! It is dermatologist tested, non-acnegenic (non-acnegenic products do not contain ingredients known to clog pores), and silicone free. What that means is that it is not going to just coat your skin and clog it up; it is actually going to penetrate into your skin and help make it nice and supple and hydrated.

It also helps improve your skin's radiance by instantly dissolving your skin's surface cells for smoother glowing skin and it is going to accelerate cell turnover which we all like. What that means is that it helps your skin repair and resurface for smoother textures.

If you're looking for a little bit of refined smoothness overall, botanical kinetics™ luminizer is excellent. EXCELLENT! You can use this morning or night. I use it in the morning on days when I'm not using any makeup and I definitely notice a difference. It gives my skin a really nice, even glow everywhere and I noticed after a couple of uses that my skin texture looked like I drank water even when I didn't. (Make sure you drink your water!) If you are looking for an improvement in skin smoothing immediately and an improvement in skin texture in four weeks, check this product out. It is for all skin types; normal, dry, combination and oily.

The last product I want to share with you is botanical kinetics™ pore refiner. I have a confession to make. Every time I have a birthday, I age one year! One side effect that comes with birthdays is getting older which also means maturing skin. If you are like me and age with each passing year, I recommend that your check out AVEDA’s botanical kinetics™ pore refiner.

As you age, your skin loses some elasticity which causes your skin to stretch and sag which makes your pores appear larger. Your skin also thickens as you grow older which causes skin cells to gather around your pores which also helps make your pores look larger.

As I have aged, I have noticed the appearance of larger pores. I look at my children’s youthful skin and I'm like can I just borrow that look? Well, I can't but I can create a difference with AVEDA’s botanical kinetics™ pore refiner. This is a really great product! It's silicone free, non-acnegenic, and it is dermatologist tested.

It has sweet clover plant stem cells which helps reinforce and smooth your outer layer of skin which visibly reduces your pores. It has beta hydroxy acid which is a salicylic acid naturally derived from the leaf of wintergreen that penetrates pores to break apart impurities. It's natural. It helps remove dirt and dead skin cells to help clarify which again, is going to help minimize your pores, clear off excess oil and debris on your face. Use it morning or night before moisturizing.

To use, you just squeeze a couple of drops from the dropper and then you go ahead and finish with the regular moisturizers that you use. It is amazing! I have been using it and I definitely notice a difference! My skin feels really, really smooth and I look a little more rested which I will take any day! This and a coffee are all you need in the morning!

For skin care that is absolutely incredible, check out these three AVEDA products: botanical kinetics™ intense hydrator, botanical kinetics™ instant luminizer, and botanical kinetics™ pore refiner. They will not disappoint!
