Reviewed by Marta
I was almost instantly impressed by Airelle’s Age-Defying Eye + Lip Treatment ($68 in the shop) and wanted to try the Age Defying Facial Serum ($158 in the shop) with its much higher dose of Airelle’s proprietary Berrimatrix. I was not disappointed. Airelle’s serum makes my skin clear and soft with a younger glow.

Berrimatrix is based on blueberries. Research published in the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology shows impressive antioxidant results. With a concentration 0.01%, Berrimatrix inhibited IRA-induced MMP1 up-regulation by 68%. This turbo-charged blueberry extract is supposed to improve the texture and help protect and preserve existing collagen.

Note the word preserve in the previous sentence. This is a key goal for Airelle. As they put it, most vitamin C serums focus on improving the skin but do not focus on the preservation of the skin. One of the ways that Berrimatrix seems to do this is by helping block infrared radiation from penetrating the skin.

Berrimatrix is in good company with the peptide known as ChroNOline. Derived from the growth factor TGF-ß, it stimulates production of laminin 5 (as well as collagen VII) to help with sagging skin and wrinkles. There’s also copper gluconate, which is a co-factor for the antioxidant superoxide dismutase.

I like the inclusion of linseed oil, or flax. Flax is made up of 55% alpha linoic acid (ALA, omega-3) and it has loads of B vitamins and the seeds contain over a hundred times more of a phytonutrient, known as lignin, than anything near it, such as wheat bran, buckwheat, rye, millet, oats, and soybeans. Lignins have received a lot of attention lately because of possible anti-cancer properties, especially in relation to breast and colon cancer.

Apart from some silicone, there's not much to dislike. Even the preservative is a nice one, caprylhydroxamic acid, derived from coconut.

This lightweight serum is easily applied. I am using it at night and so can’t vouche for Airelle’s claim that it is a great makeup primer. What I can say is that I wake up with skin that looks fresher than I deserve – before any makeup.

    Bottom line: while I liked the serum and had no adverse effects while using it, I did not see any miracle results (and who doesn’t want that). If you’re looking for a product to soften fine lines and works nicely as a makeup primer, I would certainly recommend Airelle Age-Defying Serum.

    I tested Airelle's serum and overall, I saw very positive results. I replaced my Your Best Face am and pm products and a concentrate with the Arielle serum...and had completed a course of Rescue a couple weeks prior to the testing period as well. Because of this, I didn’t have very high expectations going in, so I’ve been shocked-the Arielle Serum held its own for a month, and I’ve seen small improvements the last few days, so it’s a cumulative effect. One product, with a beautiful, thin consistency - that also plays extremely well with others - took the place of three YBF products (Defend/Restore/Antioxidants) and my skin looks just as good today (if not a bit brighter/clearer) than it did the day I started, and that’s no small feat, imo, because YBF has been awesome for me.
    I actually would purchase the Arielle serum in a heartbeat, and even try other products in the line.
