A SERUM WORTH THE SPLURGE
Y’ALL. I promise I’m not cheap. But in order for me to spend more than a $100 on makeup, or skincare, it's gotta be damn worth it.
No hype, (okay, sort of) but the Rest and Revive Restorative Placenta & Stem Cell Night Serum from MZ Skin is worth all of your hard earned coins. I'm talking down to your last penny.
But, of course before you go all out and break the bank and what not, you should be crystal clear about the skincare concern(s) you want to address before you shell out your hard earned coins. Forget about the pretty packaging and celebrity endorsement, and ask yourself if the product is formulated to address your skin's needs. And speaking of needs, my skin has been all over the place; hyperpigmentation, dry patches, ridiculously oily t-zone, dull – the list goes on and on. I started using the night serum about 3 weeks ago, and I swear on my last bottle of red wine that I saw a significant difference in the way my skin felt, but more importantly, looked.
The Rest and Restorative Placenta & Stem Cell Night Serum, "made for women, by a woman," contains Ovine Placenta, Raspberry Seed Oil, Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid, Shea Butter, and a variety of Peptides that serve to detoxify, strengthen and repair the skins surface while you get your snooze on. And if you think that’s something to write home about, wait until you hear about the anti-aging benefits!
The Placenta and Stem Cells work to stimulate collagen production, minimize the appearance of fine line and wrinkles, and restore moisture. Did I mention that it's jam-packed with Plantago Extract, which works overtime to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation? And guess what else? Those dry patches I mentioned earlier? Gone. The dullness? Bye Felicia. My skin is visibly plumper, luminous, and – wait for it…EVEN. Clinical studies have shown that the skin is 20% more hydrated after 30 days of consistent use, but I’m telling y’all after a mere 3 weeks of nightly use, my concealer is laid to perfection, and my foundation looks like real skin.

So, after all of that, what kind of price tag are we talking about? It’s $320, y’all, but don'r freak out. Keep in mind that serums are more expensive than moisturizers because they have a higher concentration of primary ingredients. I tell you guys all the time that you don’t have to break the bank to look and feel your best, but I never said that you shouldn’t invest in self-care - especially if something works. Honestly, I could go on and on about how wonderful this product is in all of its paraben, mineral oil, and artificially fragrant-free glory, but I promised myself I wouldn't get carried away writing this review. In the meantime, I'll just keep telling myself that it's quite alright to splurge on a serum that's totally worth it.
