Hi Guys

Im just posting for advice on which serum you guys think would be better for me to use in terms of beneficial ingredients for my skin.

Im 33 years old and my routine includes BHA exfoliation and vitamin A products twice a week. Ive been looking at adding in an antioxidant/peptide serum and have come up with the Juice Beauty Antioxidant serum or the Seaflora Potent seaweed serum. Ive chosen these because any products with silicone breaks me out and these were closest I could find as to what I was looking for. I see the Seaflora contains vitamin A already as well so I wasn't sure if it matters as im already using vitamin A (Avene Ystheal)

My initial thought was to use the Juice beauty in the am and Seaflora in the evenings.

please feel free to comment on my routine as well.

Thanks in advance for the help

Chasing BHA with AHA is great for pore cleansing.

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair. Ignore the name, it can be used day and night.
If you over do with Retinol and get red the next morning, use PREVOX over the top. It does a lot more than soothing a burn:

As TwinTails mentioned, the addition of an AHA could potentially be very beneficial for your skin.

I say potentially because without knowing your skin challenges, it is difficult to recommend a particular stength and type of AHA or how you might work it into your current regime.

What is your skin type and current condition? Any allergies other than silicone? Any other skin challenges you feel you'd like to address at this time?

Some other anti-aging serums I would recommend as I have had good experience and/or have heard good things about them:

Comfort Zone Skin Regimen Hydra-Pro Booster
NUDE Advanced Renewal Serum
Hylamide SubQ Anti-Age

Sorry for the late reply, my biggest concern is uneven skin tone and dark circles. Other than Silicone I haven't been sensitive to anything else

Since you mention uneven skin tone as a concern, the addition of an AHA should work really well for you. However, are your concerns with uneveness more pigment-based (hyperpigmentation) or are you experiencing blotchiness due to redness?

If we're talking pigment, then definitely add an AHA. I usually like to start with Lactic Acid but you could also try Glycolic Acid. Either works well for pigmentation issues. Start with a low percentage of either (or a formulation that contains a mix of those acids) and work your way up to stronger formulations if needed.

You could also try a Vitamin C product during the day at this time.

Eventually you could add a retinoid/retinol, but I would start with the addition of an AHA and Vitamin C.

Let me know if you have any other questions!

i am not a big fan of botanical products, as a lot of times, the ingredient list is long and it sounds good, but it does little.
I prefer the high tech products and something that can really give results
