Review: Kypris Beauty Clearing Serum

Although my blogging game seems to be a little below average lately, let me tell you; my skincare game is on top point. I've been adoring my routine and so has my skin. So without further ado, I would like to tell you about the new product that is right at the tippy top of that list. Of course, it's the Kypris Beauty Clearing Serum.

Kypris made the green beauty rounds during 2015 and towards the end of the year, I finally took the plunge and purchased one of their beautiful blue glass bottles from Selfridges in London. At first I was taken aback by the odd pondwater colouring, but after some quick reassurance that my bottle hadn't gone off (thank you Google), I was ready to try one of the best skincare products I have used since - not only going green - but since I started using skincare full stop.

I'll start off by saying that I have never spent £48 on a serum before. I was definitely sceptical. However, Kypris proves that paying good money for a serum really does pay off. I'm not saying you can't get cheaper serums that work amazingly (Andalou) but with Kypris, I feel like I can actually see what I'm paying for. Yes, the packaging is gorgeous, but the ingredients are just as much, if not more.

The Clearing Serum has been specially formulated for problem skin using super high-quality ingredients such as quinoa, zinc, green tea, and fruit derived AHAs. I've found it to be unbeatable when it comes to soothing the swelling, redness, and sensitivity that comes with cystic acne. I've used it at least once a day since making the purchase and haven't looked back. I tend to use it all over my face after acid toning, with a little extra added after moisturiser for those areas that are especially craving a little healing. It works incredibly fast, when using at night, I can visibly see the difference the following morning. My skin always looks so much happier.

At first, I was a little worried about pouring through this bottle too quickly - after all, it's only 47ml and I use it a lot. But, I've now come to the conclusion that this really doesn't matter. My skin loves the stuff, and actually, it's going down quite slowly so my bank balance can rest for another couple months...

Have you tried any Kypris?
