Review: Myroo Starflower & Orange Blossom Skin Boost Serum


Today, I'm going to be reviewing the brilliant Starflower & Orange Blossom Skin Boost Serum* from Myroo - a brand that I was introduced to at the Gorgeously Green Gathering this year. We were lucky enough to receive this little gem in our goody bag and frankly, I haven't looked back. Don't believe me? Look at how much I've used since September! And had I not already had so many facial oils to use up, I probably would have already made a repurchase. 

This wonderful serum is jojoba based - something that has always worked wonders for my fickle skin which is horribly prone to blocked pores and closed comedones. You've probably heard this already, but jojoba oil is very similar to our own sebum and so it is brilliant for cleaning out the pores of oily skin - AKA mine. I've been using this of an evening (layering over a floral water and under a moisturiser), and it has been keeping my skin super happy. My blackheads are nowhere to be seen and my skin has never been so glowy. My closed comedones are proving to be a little stubborn but this is balanced out by my unaffected skin, which has never looked better. 

I'm particularly impressed with the efficacy of this serum, because of the fact that it's such good value. This bottle will only set you back £15 and it is full of amazing ingredients. I've already mentioned the jojoba, but this is joined by wonderful rosehip, borage and raspberry seed, as well as others. You can find a full ingredients list below.

Overall, I've been super impressed by this serum and I've currently got my eye on another of Myroo's products: the oil cleanser. You should definitely check out Myroo and also follow Rachael on Twitter; I had the pleasure of meeting her at GGG, and she's such a lovely human!
