AND…I feel HORRIBLE posting about this stupidly expensive product when people in Fort Mac have lost their homes…their EVERYTHING….because of the wildfires. My heart goes out to all those affected. I’ve donated to the Red Cross, and I urge you as a reader to do the same. I just can’t imagine the heartbreak these people are going through…we have to care. Please donate to the Red Cross if you can help them out.
OK….let’s get on with this ridiculous review. 😛
I get quite a few email from PR, not as much as SOME people I know…but enough to make me laugh, because the majority is such BULL. Most of these emails I tend to ignore because I just don’t care enough anymore, or they’re all about: please post this and you will get all these followers…NO CAN DO. I deal with a select few brands and PR these days-those that know me and can tolerate my snarky blogging voice. And to be honest, I don’t get a lot of makeup sent to me anymore which is OK with me. But if it’s something to do with skincare, my 49 year old ears PERK THE HECK UP. And sometimes I get the ballz to ask for something to get sent here, like this time. Though I thought there was NO way they’d send it to little old me. Guess I was wrong!
The Ridiculously Expensive Amore Pacific Time Response Skin Renewal Serum
Ok, WARNING to you all reading this…. it’s going to be a bit of a rant. SO, if you can’t handle my rants..move on.
The only place in Canada that I’m pretty sure you can get Amore Pacific Time Response Skin Renewal Serum is from Holt Renfrew at the moment…I don’t think Sephora Canada carries this one..yet…or if they ever will. Oh, and I bet it’s available at Nordstrom here in Canada as well.
Amore Pacific Time Response Skin Renewal Serum supposedly boosts collagen production, and smooths fine lines and wrinkles. It speeds-up cellular regeneration bringing brilliance back to dull skin and increases anti-oxidant production preventing future aging and damage. Amore Pacific Time Response Skin Renewal Serum has a powerful, patented compound of green tea stem cells, green tea EGCG and green tea saponin. Basically, it’s FULL OF GREEN TEA in case you didn’t get that part 😛 . All this tea boosts collagen production and rebalances melanin regulation-which HMMMmmmmmmm…. I’ll get to that later. It revives the skin’s hydration process to reduce lines and wrinkles, improve skin clarity and increase skin radiance and firmness.
Now, I’m OLD…and vulnerable to this anti-aging HOODOO SPEAK that beauty companies like to blather on about. BOOSTS COLLAGEN PRODUCTION…STEM CELLS… MELANIN REGULATION….Hey, I’m only hooman myself and wishing for that fountain of youth too. But nothing a cosmetic company sells you can speak to your cells like they claim, and turn off or on functions… start making changes at the genetic level like this stuff is trying to tell us…it’s just NOT feasible people. Let’s get a grip?!! NOTHING TOPICAL CAN MAKE YOUR GENES DO THIS OR ACT LIKE THAT. I will no longer listen to these “SPINS” that PR try to shove at us, and no longer pretend or try to convince you that this stuff is real. Cause it just AIN’T.
Sorry to burst your bubble Amore Pacific. But as someone who is aging…like REALLY aging compared to the plethora of under 30 year old beauty bloggers in the internets… and hey most of them are my friends…but no offence? I don’t take any skincare advice from ANYBODY that isn’t close to my age, so that erases ALL of you buddies I hate to say…I mean, I still read your thoughts and all? And if what you are reviewing offers hydration…ok that’s one thing I’ll listen to and try. But if it’s anything to do with aging? You have no idea yet, trust me.
Amore Pacific Time Response Skin Renewal Serum is nice. It’s a serum that absorbs pretty quickly and doesn’t leave your skin tacky or greasy. But, it’s really moisturizing. LIKE A LOT. I can’t believe they sell a cream to go with this serum, because honestly you don’t need a cream after using this stuff. I find once a day is enough for my dry skin, otherwise it’ll break me out. If you are really, REALLY dry then twice a day is your jam with this stuff.
But, to be honest? I didn’t really notice all that much difference when I used this…at least until it started to break me out. Once that happens, I stop using that product and that’s what I did with Amore Pacific Time Response Skin Renewal Serum. It’s in my skincare drawer, waiting there. I might try again soon? Or just wait until fall when it starts to cool down here again. It’s super-hydrating, and that’s pretty much all I noticed whilst using it for about three weeks.
So, the ridiculously expensive Amore Pacific Time Response Skin Renewal Serum is something for those of you that have a lot of extra cash sitting around. For those of you that LOVE Korean skincare. For those of you with really, REALLY dry skin. To be honest, I can’t think of anyone I know that can afford this stuff. And if they could? I’d tell them NOT to waste their money. #WhoSaidBeautyBloggersDontTellTheTruth #FightMe
What’s the most expensive skincare product you’ve ever tried? This one is it for me. I’ve tried the La Mer Cream and even had a jar at one point in my crazy beauty junkie addiction journey. But that’s pennies compared to this one LOL. What’s your spending limit when it comes to beauty? And are you ore willing to spend on skincare like I am?
