Graydon has never failed to impress me. Although I don’t want this review to contain too much foreshadowing, I have to agree that this is just another product of the list of Graydon Skincare which has me head over heels. Keep reading though, because I’m going to dive into the nitty gritty details about this gorgeous serum.
The Graydon Full Moon Serum
Behind the Brand
The Graydon Full Moon serum is marketed to reverse the signs of aging as it is packed with active ingredients like collagen, Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid and blue tansy to name a few. It’s a light serum with a mildly blue tint (the most perfect of colours, if you ask me!) which quickly sinks into the skin without feeling heavy. It can be applied either morning or night－ I tend to prefer using it as part of my nightly skincare routine.
Why it is used
|Collagen||Derived from African Mahogany to minimize pores and renew a firm texture to the skin.|
|Hyaluronic Acid||Derived from Indian Sienna to act as a humectant and keep skin moisturized.|
|Amino Acids||To keep skin smooth, balanced and provide moisture.|
|Moringa Extract||Helps to keep skin protected against environmental pollution.|
|Retinol||Derived from seeds of the Moth Bean Plant helps to minimize wrinkles.|
|Vitamin C||From the Moringa Leaf helps to brighten and even skintone.|
|Blue Tansy||Soothes skin and acts as an anti-inflammatory|
The Graydon Full Moon serum comes beautifully packaged in a glass bottle with a dropper. Definitely one of the more sustainable packaging options and I am all about it!
How does it perform?
I have been testing the Graydon Full Moon serum since I received it at the #mndflbeauty event in early December of 2018. I like to thoroughly test skincare before reviewing in order to give the best opinion possible! Although I could have raved about this product two weeks after I began using it.
The Graydon Full Moon serum is perfect for all skintypes, though I feel it is much more targeted to mature skin with the focus on anti-aging. That’s not to say that it wasn’t helpful for more youthful skintypes. I found that the blue tansy and hyaluronic acid are beneficial to sensitive and acne prone skin, too.
Though I love this serum, I do feel as though it’s something I would reach for more around my late twenties. Currently for my skin I think the Herbivore Lapis Oil (another product rich in blue tansy!) is working wonders for my acne prone skin.
Let’s talk about the price
The Graydon Full Moon serum isn’t cheap by any means, but it does last quite a while. I have been using this product for nearly three months (2-3 drops per night) and have only just reached the halfway point on the bottle.
The cost puts you about $2.90 per ml.
Without sounding like a broken record, I did thoroughly enjoy this serum from Graydon. However, I feel that for my current skincare needs it’s not something I will be repurchasing for a few years. It is definitely best for more mature skintypes and those looking to slow the aging process.
