Today I’m reviewing the Polyglutamic Acid Serum from The Inkey List that I recently purchased from Shoppers / Pharmaprix. [info in italics taken from the B For Beauty UK website]
Naturally found in the skin, Polyglutamic Acid (PGA) helps to maintain skin’s moisture levels and holds 4 times more moisture than Hyaluronic Acid. Polyglutamic Acid acts to:
- Form a thin, smooth and moisturising film on the skin
- Reduce the appearance of fine lines
- Brighten skin and evens tone
My skin loves hyaluronic acid, so I was especially interested in trying out this serum. It feels like a cross between a HA serum and a silicone primer. I’ve been using it in conjunction with the Hexa-Peptide Serum, and they work really well together.
It is very lightweight, and my skin feels so smooth after applying. My only complaint is that this serum has an awful chemical scent (almost paint-like to my nose). Thankfully it disappears quickly, because yuck!
It works well with makeup too. Great as a primer! And it is budget friendly at $14.99 CAD for 30 ml.
