Review: Synergie Skin Practitioner Essential Vitamin A Serum
Posted On February 23, 2017
Vitamin A has been known to help smooth both wrinkles and fine lines for such a long time. Besides, this single-most important ingredient that repair, restore, and prevent damaged skin also helps to increase skin hydration and collagen production. However, our skin does not produce Vitamin A by itself, and that is why our skin becomes deficient over time because the sun depletes Vitamin A and this is one of the major reason that the super-exposed skin to sun damage age faster than those who do not. Thus, topical application of Vitamin A is needed in order to reduce the damage from sunlight.
Now, I’m no expert but a dabbler and I’m my own guinea pig. Today’s post is another review on Synergie Skin product line which has been delivered to me for review purpose. I used it for 14 days, and here’s my personal experience about this serum.

What I Say
Synergie Skin Practitioner Essential Vitamin A Serum comes in an amber bottle with a dropper style dispenser. I notice that there is no instruction on how much product to use. So, I had to search on the Internet to find the information. That’s how I come to know that this product is not suitable for women who are pregnant or lactating.
I can say that the texture is smooth. The product is quite lightweight and it absorbs quite easily into my skin without feeling giving my skin with the tightness or greasy. I can feel the instant velvety feeling on my skin. Once the product get absorbed into my skin, I layered it with night cream and sunscreen (Yup. I usually wear sunscreen in the evening, too!). This product does not give me acne breakouts, and I can feel my skin is hydrated the next morning.
After 14 days of using this together with Synergie Skin Practitioner Priority-B Essential Niacinamide Serum, I notice that my skin has gotten smoother and softer to the touch. My old acne scars and spots are a little unnoticeable. I guess these spots will disappear if I continue using it in the long run. The retinol is a good thing that proven to work to help lighten the blemishes. This is the only retinol that I find with natural ingredients that even sensitive skin can use because it does not contain paraben, fragrances, SLS, and PEG. It is a winner!
This serum is a good catch especially when you are looking for a serum that help to restore healthier collagen fibers by accelerating slow or irregular cellular turnover as well as reduce the appearance of hyper-pigmentation. This is recommended product because I simply feel the effects from the first application onto my skin. This serum may help to reduce skin damage caused by UV rays, too. However, I would not recommend this to women who are pregnant or lactating.
You can simply get this serum by dropping a contact with Cosderm Sdn. Bhd. They will recommend you to the nearest clinic with available stock.
