Spoiler alert: I love this serum. Or is it a moisturizer? Or is it a hydrating mask? The Tundra Chaga Pressed Serum by Blithe is a serious skincare multitasker that has stolen my heart. I was so sad when I used the last little bit in the jar, and have wistfully stared at the container ever since as it sat on my desk in preparation for this review.
Long story short: This serum is a keeper, and I highly recommend it.
So, you guys are as enthusiastic about skincare as I am, but let’s start with a review. A serum is a targeted step in your skincare routine that usually comes after cleansing and before moisturizing. Serums are usually found in a bottle and are often pretty thin in terms of viscosity.
But Blithe has introduced me to the world of PRESSED serums – which have a texture somewhere in between a moisturizer and a pomade, but infinitely light for maximum absorption. The texture is truly one of the most enchanting elements of this product – it’s creamy but weightless. Dense, but not the least bit sticky. It feels like the product is not only moisturizing your skin but nourishing it throughout the day.
And the smell! OMG – delightfully light and herbal. I liken it to the softest hint of your favorite essential oil – not enough to overpower your sense of smell and stay with you throughout the day (in a bad way), but just enough to treat yourself while applying the product.
And, I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to get to the best part. This pressed serum is made with Chaga mushroom (one of my favorite superfoods) which is rich in beta-glucan – a humectant (or hydrator) that boosts the skin barrier and deeply hydrates. The healing elements of the Chaga mushroom help to heal and protect the skin, while boosting the skin barrier, protecting the delicate, sensitive skin underneath. In short: Tundra Chaga Pressed Serum by Blithe is the superfood solution your dry, winter skin has been calling for.
Who needs this product: Anyone with dry, cracked skin. Or anyone looking to radically hydrate your skin without breaking the bank.
I used Tundra Chaga Pressed Serum by Blithe daily immediately after cleansing. Because of the product’s heartier consistency, I didn’t use a moisturizer on top (but I did use a sunblock). And yes, this works for day and nighttime skincare.
