As far back as I can remember, I have been dealing with hyperpigmentation (my pimples have a knack for leaving dark spots). U Beauty Resurfacing Compound contains many brightening and smoothing ingredients that I’m looking for including Vitamin C, alpha hydroxy acids and retinol, as well as clarifying witch hazel and moisturizing vitamin E. if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.)
I am always ready to try new skin care products. I turn to acids, peels, primers and everything in between to bring me glass-like skin and hide my pores, which has always been pretty obvious. The word “resurfacing” in U Beauty’s resurfacing compound seemed to do the trick, and I was convinced to hit the nail on the head in a test drive. The other remark that caught my attention is that the serum promises noticeable results in three to six days. As the most impatient skincare enthusiast, it was music to my ears. And like so many people, I have occasional hormonal acne breakouts. Sometimes, in addition to creating discoloration, the spots that my pimples leave behind are slightly raised. I’ve been through more of this for the past few months, so I was hoping the resurfacing compound would tackle these issues head-on – and it certainly did.
I washed my face (decided to use a mild facial cleanser so my skin wasn’t on high alert after the serum was applied) and applied a few pumps of the serum. It has a smoother consistency than I expected and it took about three pumps to coat my face. I covered it with a basic moisturizer and I’m happy to report that after a few days my complexion was clearer and my dark spots seemed to have faded a bit. My combination skin is usually tough enough to withstand experimentation, but retinol can still be irritating. I was relieved that this serum left no tingling or tightness – definitely a new serum for my glass skin goals.
