The serum that works wonders
I was quite excited to try this serum as it was the first time I had used anything from the brand and it honestly couldn't have come at a better time. Firstly the packaging is stunning from the recyclable box to the glass pump makes it feel ultra luxe. The pump is great as I can control the amount of product dispensed and this serum really does all that it claims. I have quite dry skin and tend to get a few breakouts each month so I found after a few uses that it started to change the texture of my skin to be a bit more soft and hydrated but also reduced my pimples and noticed that my skin has started to get a lot clearer since using it. The product easily absorbs into my skin and its a big plus knowing it is full of natural ingredients.
My skin is so hydrated, smoothed and soothed!
Oh my god I love EVERYTHING about this serum! After 1 week of using the repair & glow serum my skin is so plump, hydrated, my uneven skin tone is visibly reduced and my sensitised skin is feels so nurtured and protected. The serum is an oil based serum, and has a natural botanical smell that applies and absorbs really well. I love the glass bottle and easy pump dispenser. I can’t rave and recommend this serum any more and I love that it’s cruelty free and vegan! I love that it can be used in the morning or night, so I have flexibility in my routine. I use it predominantly at night and love how my skin feels plump and glows in the morning.
Love this product!
I've been using this as my go-to since its winter now and my skin needs some more TLC in these particularly harsh winter months! As it is an oil based serum I feel as though it coats my skin and preps the skin for those windy chills that dry me out. I also thought this product was great because it didn't break me out! I have particularly sensitive skin and tend to break out around my period and this did not exacerbate this.
Would recommend if you're in the market for a great new serum!!
Exceptional Serum for skin Balance
This is an amazing serum. It definitely made my skin more glowy. I noticed a difference in the glow factor after just one use, and my skin continued to improve with continued use.
I observed a marked improvement in the dryness of my skin. I loved that this serum enhanced my complexion by reducing redness and texture. The serums consistency was more like an oil to me and it’s fragrance was very pleasant and natural with delicate floral notes.
I appreciated the applicator bottle as it squirted the perfect amount of product to spread on my face and neck, and I was impressed with the dark glass bottle as I feel that the dark colour of the bottle protects the delicate oils inside from spoiling in the light.
I agree with the labelling on the box that stated that niacinamide and vitamin E reduces inflammation, as I definitely detected much less inflammation in my skin since using this.
I was happy that the product was made in Australia and wowed by the fact that it was made from natural ingredients. I would highly recommend this product for anyone that’s looking for an exceptional serum or oil.
Stemlab Glow Serum
I've not heard of Stemlab before I received this product in the VIP Beautycrew box. It is beautifully packaged in a olive green and white cardboard box. I love that it is made in Australia with all natural ingredients. I have dry and sensitive skin so the Benefits listed on the box should address my skin concerns. Anything that will boost natural collagen is a yes for me!
Inside is a black glass jar with a long black lid. Lifting it up, there is a black pump jar. I normally use 2-3 pumps as that will go all over my face and neck. Any residual will be applied to my hands as well. The serum is not very thick and goes well under makeup and moisturiser. There is no irritation, it rather soothes my dry flaky skin. It does not pill like other brands I've used.
Come morning my skin is very hydrated and I do think it is glowing and I have some pigmentation that is gradually fading the more I use it.
Stemlab Repair & Glow Serum
I’m so excited to see what this serum will do for me.
I was a bit worried about using a oil based serum as I have combination skin can can often be dry but get hormonal breakouts and also breakout along my chin and jaw area when a product isn’t suitable for my skin.
The serum comes beautifully packaged it’s 30ml pump action bottle comes presented in a lovely olive green and white cardboard box. I like that on front of the box it says Day & Night so without even reacting the directions you could use it for both or either I decided to use it at night time as having combination skin and he’s being a oil base serum I thought that would be the best way to go for me. Once opened you have 12 months to use it which I think is fantastic for a natural products I’ve tried a couple recently that I only have a three month shelflife once opened.
The scent is a sweet floral scent and light being made from lavender, frankincense, rose geranium and ylang ylang.
The pump does full pumps it says to use 1 to 2 pumps per use I’ve gone with one and have found applying on my fingertips and over my face that I need to be really quick to disperse it evenly because once it’s on my skin it Doesn’t move around so freely As if the product absorbs instantly into where you place it.
After massaging in and then applying moisturiser I found I had to wash my hands from the excess oil on my palms and fingertips. After washing my hands I ran my fingertips over my face and found oil on my finger tips again, even a few hours later I have found the same thing.
After a few days of use I was please to discover I have not broken out and am excited to use over the next few weeks to see the outcome for my skin.
Update: after using the stem lab repair and glow serum now for a few weeks I tried it once a day for a week which was good I did still notice how greasy my skin felt but didn’t break out, once I used it twice a day the next week after I did start to break out again.
For future further use I will just use it once a day at night time before bed because of the oily look I get from it. This would be absolutely fantastic for very dry or dehydrated skin types as their skin would absorb it up.
Stemlab Repair & Glow Serum
The Stem Labs Repair and Glow serum comes beautifully packaged in a green and white texturised box. It stands out from all other packaging I've seen before. It really catches the eye.
The bottle is a dark brown transparent glass with a black plastic pump and black cap. The bottle contains 30mls of serum and lasts 12 months from opening.
The serum is made in Australia and made from natural ingredients and is also cruelty-free and vegan.
To apply the serum you need to apply it after cleansing and toning.
After taking off the lid I pressed the pump a few times and the serum shot out really fast. There is no control over how much serum comes out at a time. Even if I try to slow the flow down by just slightly pressing the pump with my finger ever so gently you still get 1 full pump full which shoots out into your hand. The serum itself is an oily consistency and quite thin. It has a botanical smell to it and is an olive oil colour. When I apply serums I always like to rub my fingertips together and then massage the serum into my skin. I noticed that this serum is quite oily and left my hands looking and feeling very oily and shiny. I then washed my hands and waited for the serum to absorb into my skin before applying my moisturiser but when I applied it my hands again looked very oily from the serum. My face looked and felt oily. I only used 1 pump of serum. If the pump was different I would use half a pump for my skin but there is no control of how much product comes out with each press.
After a few hours I ended up blotting my skin as it was far to oily and shiny. In saying this my skin did however feel softer than ever. It also felt smooth and looked radiant.
I don't think this is a serum I can use twice a day or even once a day as it's far too oily for my skin type which is combination and if I use it too frequently I noticed my skin did start breaking out. I've now started using it just 3 times a week and found that works best for my skin.
My skin love this
I absolutely love this serum. This is the first time I use Stemlab repair and glow serum. I have normal to dry skin. I use this every morning and evening after cleansing my face and before applying moisturiser.
I only used like 1 to 2 pump of the serum, gently rubbing it into my skin. I found it absorbs so quickly in to my skin without feeling greasy or slippery. My skin feels soft and smooth after application.
This has most loving ingredients which has brought amazing changes in to my skin and hydration levels. No more dryness issues on the face. Love the feeling on my face it leaves in the morning.
I feel this was very effective on my skin breakouts and fading away acne scars and blemishes. I didn't encounter any new breakouts when using this serum. It's definitely made a difference compared to not using this product at all. I feel that it has improved the overall appearance and texture of my skin. My skin texture is beginning to look finer, fresher and more youthful with its continued use.
I love the the pump dispenser that dispenses only a small amount and 30ml is a great size that still lasts as you don't need a lot. It has a delicate light aroma – very natural smell.
This serum is great for hydration and overall good at smoothing and softening your facial skin. I would highly recommend this Australian made product for anyone who wants improve skin texture, smoothness and making you feel wonderful!
I've been using this as a daily part of my skin care routine now. After cleansing and adding toner, I apply a couple of drops of this to my face then I use my roller massage to massage this in to my skin. It has made quite a big difference. I have a really bad ageing skin due to graves disease I feel like this managed to bring more glow and breath some life into my skin. It's more hydrated and my face feels alot more tighter and when I wake up in the morning my face feels less puffier than before . I'm really impressed and will continue to use this. I love the beautiful packaging as well. Good product that does what it claims to do.
Visibly brighter skin
Love love love this serum. It delivers amazing results. My skin looks so much better when using this product. Stem lab is a great product line and this serum works to brighten skin, repair, hydrate and prevent fine lines. I use this at night after cleansing and toning, then I moisturise. I feel it’s good value as two pumps go a long way so it lasts really well. It feel light and non greasy on my skin and sinks in really well. It’s perfect for sensitive skin as there is no irritation. I will definitely be buying this serum again because of the results
I love all of Stemlab's products, but the Repair & Glow is by far my favourite! This was a gift from my mum but I can honestly say I'm hooked and have now purchased the full range. I can feel and see a difference almost immediately with my complexion and I really love that it's not greasy on the skin. I really can't fault these guys, they are clearly doing it right!
I would suggest using this serum first thing in the morning and use their Anti-aging serum just before bed!
Silky, light weight and super hydrating
It’s silky, light weight, and so hydrating, leaving my skin dewy every time. My skin thrives on B3 to stop brake outs and this delivers it perfectly. I will continue to buy this product, and love that it’s Australian made and owned, and so well priced. My husband found the stem lab stuff in the bathroom and has started using it as well. We both love it and will continue to use it. Another thing, it’s amazing under makeup to prep the skin, no dry cracking foundation with this on first.. that’s a win win for me. Thanks stem lab ............................................
Lather me in this luxe and lovely serum!!
I was initially gifted this product by a friend. I've now purchased it several times as I absolutely love it. The smell, feel and best of all THE RESULTS. It's not often you come across an affordable Australian product that really does what it says it will do. I'm a complete convert!! THIS is by far my most fav product of them all. I lather myself in it, and I know I don't need to, but it smells and feels so good!!
Stemlab are quality products, there's no doubt about it. I've always purchased brands that are high quality, ethical and luxe and this puts all of them to shame!! I've since purchased various other products from this brand and they are mindblowing!!
