When we came across the stunning Glossier-like Instagram feed for Blanc Naturals, we knew we had to give these serums a try. Yes, most of us have a hyaluronic acid or two in our rotation, but Blanc Naturals HA seemed different. Read on to see why we fell in love with this affordable, little-known skincare brand.
What Is It?
Blanc makes two all-natural HA serum variations. Restore and Smooth (green, $25) contains bamboo, green tea and aloe vera. And Brighten and Repair (pink, $25) contains mango, acai berry and goji berry. The brand boasts some serious skin-changing benefits:
- Targets dark spots, wrinkles, acne scars, and dull uneven skin
- Reverse the damage caused by pollutants, sun exposure, and free radicals
- Absorbs into skin quickly and leaves the skin smooth, non-greasy, and calm
- Infused with vitamins and antioxidants that go skin deep to nourish and hydrate
- Achieve a softer and brighter complexion while improving skin texture
- Boost levels of collagen for firmer, more elastic and radiant skin
The founder of Blanc started the brand when she couldn’t find an organic brand that delivered the skin-changing results she wanted. Blanc is totally organic and aimed at women of all ages.
How To Use It
Massage a few drops of serum onto cleansed skin morning and night. Follow with a moisturizer if you feel you need to.
I will start by saying we loved both serums equally and noticed mostly the same benefits from both. They have a similar application and feel, and I’d recommend either depending on your specific skin concerns. The packaging is DOPE. Seriously, it is so beautiful and modern, which makes the product look way more expensive than it is.
These serums are clear and have a similar feel to other HA variations, but they’re a little thicker since they contain so many other ingredients. They have a very faint odor and go on smoothly and easily. I often break out or get red and blotchy from new products, but this didn’t irritate my skin a bit!
My skin is on the drier side so I found that I needed to use moisturizer after applying these. However after using Blanc + moisturizer morning and night for 2 weeks, my skin felt WAY more hydrated, soft and plumped up. I used pink in the morning and green at night to score the benefits of both =). Before using these serums, I noticed some crows feet beginning to form, and now I barely even see them. Note that I am 26 and not 46, so I can’t say how well this works on deeper wrinkles. But I can say that I was at a well-lit party after using this for 2 weeks and had two people compliment my skin! FYI that never happens.
We’d highly recommend this serum to anyone looking to plump, brighten and better their skin.
