My skin is a pretty accurate representation of my lifestyle. When I’m sleeping well, staying hydrated, and eating fresh food, it glows. But when I’m stressed, tired, or gorging on refined sugars exclusively, it’s dull, dehydrated, red, and congested. Both are part of life, but when it’s the latter, I like to call on a particular skincare category to help my complexion get back on track: serums.
Serums are undoubtedly the best way to deliver a highly concentrated, potent dose of active ingredients to the skin. Some are great at brightening my complexion while others do wonders for my skin texture.
As a beauty writer who has tried more than 100 serums over the past five years, I’m always looking to streamline my skincare routine and narrow down my selection of products. Lucky for me, the search for an ideal, do-it-all serum ended when I was introduced to Fresh’s Vitamin Nectar Glow Juice Antioxidant Face Serum.
Why this is the one serum you’ll need
Bursting with glow-giving antioxidants, the Fresh Vitamin Nectar Glow Juice Antioxidant Face Serum holds over 480,000 microbubbles that are brimming with essential vitamins and nourishing botanical extracts to keep your skin healthy and bright.
Working like a juice for your skin, it calls upon a vitamin fruit complex of lemon and orange extracts, vitamins C, E, and B5, as well as minerals to revitalise skin that looks dull and tired.
Stress may weaken your skin’s barrier, which hinders your skin’s ability to retain water. To replenish lost moisture, cold-pressed jicama root juice, chicory root juice, and ginger water bump up your skin’s hydration levels, keeping it supple and moisturised.
Beta-carotene, a precursor to vitamin A, also lends its powerful antioxidant properties to the formula, which help ward off damaging free radicals that can speed up skin ageing.
As a finishing touch to its nutrient-rich composition, cold-pressed coconut oil is whisked in to nourish and soften the skin. It even boasts antimicrobial properties that can help protect your skin against harmful microorganisms.
Fresh Vitamin Nectar Glow Juice Antioxidant Face Serum review: First impressions
Housed in a dark bottle to keep its vitamins and antioxidants extra fresh, the Vitamin Nectar Glow Juice Antioxidant Face Serum features a dropper so you can easily dispense a few drops into your palm.
The brand describes the antioxidant serum as “like fresh-pressed juice” for your face, and that’s exactly what it is – from the scent to the formula. It smells like a tall glass of fresh orange and lemon juice, which instantly refreshed both my skin and senses.
Look a little closer and you’ll see the microbubbles that remain intact until application, upon which it releases a myriad of skin-loving vitamins and botanical extracts.
Its texture is so water-light that you’d never guess there’s coconut oil in the blend, yet it left my skin feeling plump and hydrated in mere seconds. My sensitive skin drank every bit of it and didn’t react negatively in the slightest, making it a great serum for all skin types.
If you’re new to serums, the Vitamin Nectar Serum would be a great option to start with, with its reasonable price point and multivitamin benefits. And if you consider yourself a skincare aficionado, this would fit seamlessly into your existing routine. You can use it as a standalone serum or as a booster serum before other targeted serums.
Three to five drops twice a day is all you need to give your skin a shot of multivitamins for healthy, radiant skin. From the first use, I was thrilled to see what it could do for my skin after using it daily for a month.
Fresh Vitamin Nectar Glow Juice Antioxidant Face Serum review: Results after 1 month
Before a month had even gone by, my complexion gained a dewy glow. Thanks to the cocktail of vitamins, my skin felt smoother and softer to the touch. My complexion looked much more radiant and even in tone too.
Dull and dry patches were a thing of the past, likely due to the vitamin fruit complex and hydrators in the formula, which kept my skin supple and bouncy.
I struggled with stubborn acne scars and red marks along my jawline, but those started to fade around the second week of my trial. Now, they’re hardly noticeable. The non-comedogenic formula didn’t cause any breakouts during the trial too, which was a relief.
I may not be getting my beauty sleep these days, but you probably wouldn’t be able to clock that if you met me in person. These are mighty results delivered by a tiny bottle of serum, and I’m seriously impressed.
You’ll have to try it out yourself to see the difference! Fresh even has a special promo code below for all Daily Vanity readers, so there’s no better time to pick up a bottle for yourself or a loved one.
Fresh Vitamin Nectar Glow Juice Antioxidant Face Serum retails for S$45 on Fresh’s website and at Sephora stores.
