You know that simple goodness certain products have? That intoxicating smell and texture that make you want to inhale them and slather them all over your body? From the minute I put a dab of Blissoma Awake Morning Firming Facial Moisture ($25.99) on my face, I felt like my skin was having the same "aha" moment that I was. Think of this lightweight serum as your morning coffee in a smaller — and healthier — presentation. As soon as I washed my face and put it on (only a small amount is needed!), I felt like my skin got an immediate jolt of energy. One small pump of liquid and my face felt awake and ready to conquer the day.
To back up a little: I have combination skin, am in the midst of middle age and am always looking for products that multi-task. In other words, I want something that goes on smooth and fast that also firms, brightens, depuffs and does anything anti-aging. I prefer items that are natural with ingredients I’ve actually heard of. Blissoma Solutions Awake is vegan, 100% natural, and chock full of tonic herbs and organic antioxidants. It honestly felt — and smelled – like food for my face. The company’s website proclaims as much, with wording that mentions how they prepare “fresh, organic herb extracts, juices and source seed oils pressed on demand to maximize the healing and anti-aging properties of each ingredient.”
You’ve read their words. Now read mine: This heavenly concoction is a juice blend for your face. Everything about the product — at least, for me — is a win. Looking for something that glides on effortlessly in the morning? Check. Want something that penetrates quickly and leaves no oily residue? Check again. Added bonus points for the “revived” feeling I had almost immediately upon contact? Check, check, and check again!
Or dare I say “cheek?” As I rubbed the product on my cheeks, forehead and chin, it definitely made my face (and me!) feel happier, even at the ungodly hour of 6 a.m. After four weeks of using Blissoma Solutions Awake (both night and day), my face looked perkier and more youthful. Maybe it was the yummy “fresh” smell that intoxicated my senses before I was fully awake, or maybe it was the fact that I knew I was slathering pure goodness onto my skin, or maybe it was the way my face seemed to drink it all in. Perhaps it was all of the above. No need to psychoanalyze. The bottom line is the same: I’m a huge fan and ready to try another one of their products.
