I picked up the Yes to Blueberries Age Refresh Intensive Skin when I grabbed the Overnight Hydrating Cream from Drugstore.com for 20% off. I tend to be a sucker for a good serum. It makes sense, since I’m not a fan of toners.
The Website Claims:
help improve skin firmness, protect skin, diminish fine lines and wrinkles, and nourish age-damaged skin.

$19.99 for 1 fl. oz. (though I got it for 20% off)
Does it live up to its claims?
I think it does. It’s got cotton thistle in it as a key ingredient. Cotton Thistle has been shown to promote cell regeneration within the epidermis. It stimulates cell repair and promotes hydrated, softer skin. And let’s not forget the fruit that gives this product its name! Blueberries, which are a super food, have higher levels of antioxidants than green tea and red wine combined. So not only are they good to eat, they’re good for your skin.
Would I purchase again?
Yes. I like to use this serum before I put on my morning moisturizer, to give my skin a little extra TLC in the morning. It’s very wet, and a little goes a long way when you’re smoothing it over your face and neck. I feel like it gives my skin a nice little boost.
Do you like serums? Have you tried this one?
Product purchased by me. All opinions are my own.
