This Ultra-Hydrating Mushroom Face Serum Is the Cure to Dry, Winter Skin
Volition delivers a cold weather savior.
So, it happened. I looked in the mirror and found a dry patch on my face — an early symptom of winter weather. Normally, I would attack my skin with hydrating products and face mists but the other oily areas would not like that at all. In comes Volition‘s Snow Mushroom Water Serum to the rescue. I’m usually against adding products to my already extensive routine but desperate times call for desperate measures. I didn’t have a winter-specific skincare routine but now I do thanks to this product. It also helped cut down on my prep time in the morning which in itself, is a Christmas miracle.
Read on to learn about why I’m obsessed with this week’s “Editor’s Pick.”
WHAT IS IT: Volition Snow Mushroom Water Serum
WHY IT’S WORTH THE HYPE: I instantly noticed a difference in my skin after trying the Snow Mushroom Water Serum. Before applying my nighttime moisturizer I patted the lightweight formula into my skin and it absorbed quickly which is usually a sign of success. My skin was glowing but the real test would be how I woke up the next morning. On my slow (and groggy) procession to the bathroom the following day, my roommate asked from the kitchen: “Why’d you put on highlighter before taking a shower? Is that a new beauty thing?” It isn’t. The serum had managed to maintain its sheen throughout the night without causing breakouts on my oily skin.
I’m not sure exactly what a snow mushroom is but I’m thankful for it. Apparently, the fungus acts as nature’s sponge holding in nearly 500 times its weight in water. Hyaluronic acid lovers are familiar with this water-attracting property but not to this extent. Other ingredients include marine water, watermelon/apple extracts and lentil extract which work in tandem to hydrate, soothe and brighten the skin. With continued use I’ve found my skin to be incredibly supple and smooth despite the frosty weather. What’s even better is that this product can be applied under makeup without causing creasing or disturbing your foundation. The Snow Mushroom Water Serum is my new secret weapon against dryness.
WHERE YOU CAN FIND IT: Volition’s Snow Mushroom Water Serum is available at Sephora for $62 USD. It also has the retailer’s “Clean at Sephora” stamp of approval.
