We’ve all seen the various claims and benefits about moisturising serums, but how good are they? I was recently asked to review FIT Skincare Moisturising Ultra Serum. FIT is a range of luxury, high tech hair and skincare for men, which contain natural biological and marine extracts, vitamins and minerals and they have their own in-house research and development lab and manufacturing facility. Serums contain a higher concentration of active ingredients and hydrating agents over regular moisturising creams and lotions.
I love the design and branding of the product, its simple, bold lettering and silver packaging to me, suggest a quality, high end product. The serum is dispensed through a pump, which I quite like, it gives you a more control and decreases the chance for any wastage than with a squeezy tube. I tested the serum over a two week period, twice a day, on a morning and last thing on a night before bed.
The serum has quite a strong citrusy fragrance, for me perhaps a little bit too lemony. I have to say its not a typically masculine scent! Although, I’m not aware if FIT Skincare have a signature scent like some other brands, perhaps a more manly fragrance would be more appealing. Upon applying the serum, it has a quality feel with its nice thick consistency and absorbs into your skin well, without feeling greasy.
The serum uses Oxy-Fit-10 technology which is intended to recharge and stimulate skin’s natural repair mechanisms. There are so many different ingredients, I wont go through them all but some include; caffeine, to reduce the appearance of dark circles, Amino acids to hydrate, tone and aid damage repair and Hyaluronic acid which intensely hydrates. Not forgetting vitamins A, E & 4 types of Vitamin B, which supposedly treat uneven skin tones, blemishes and prevent irritation and excess oil production and protect from pollution.
I found that it certainly works well as a re-hydrating moisturiser and left my skin feeling soft and refreshed. I didn’t notice that it improved the appearance of fine lines (not that I’ve got many)! I didn’t suffer any skin irritation or excess oil whilst using the serum, both characteristics claimed by some of the ingredients.
The RRP for the moisturising serum (30ml) is £50. Although, this is a high end product, I don’t think the high price tag can be fairly justified, considering its only a 30ml tube. I wouldn’t expect it to be that long lasting, assuming its used twice daily like I have done. The substantial price of the FIT serum does put me off buying it in the future, but on the whole, I think its a a really good hydrating moisturiser. You can check out Fit Skincare site here.
