Mabel + Meg Lumilixir Serum | Review


One of the reasons I like reviewing products on my blog is to share products I have been loving. However, I think it’s equally important to tell you about the products I don’t like too. Unfortunately this Mabel + Meg Lumixir Serum is one of them.

Every time I finish a skincare product, I always have a look around to see what else is out there to try. I usually head to Cult Beauty and check out their skincare section as they have really useful filters which help narrow down options and find specifically what you’re looking for. Once I filtered through what I was looking for, I came across the Mabel + Meg Lumilixir Serum.

The serum contains Vitamin C and Hyaluronic acid and is supposed to reduce fine lines, wrinkles and blemishes as well as being skin brightening, hydrating and collagen boosting. This for me is everything I could ever ask for in a skincare product. As well as this, the reviews were all very positive so I was excited to try out this product.

I started using this serum morning and night after cleansing and before moisturising. The applicator is a pipette dropper and I’d say roughly 1-2 drops is plenty to cover the whole face. When you first put it on your skin, it has a refreshing feeling but it turns sticky very quickly so you need to give it a minute or so to set into the skin properly. I wasn’t wowed by it the first time I used it but I wanted to try it a few times before I made my mind up of how I feel.

Around the same time, I noticed my skin breaking out and at first I couldn’t figure out what it was. Nothing had changed, and I had the same skincare routine with the exception of this serum. After a week or so I stopped using it to give my skin a break. I then patched tested an area of my skin, and once again I started breaking out. The breakouts weren’t small at all; they were massive breakouts which have left me with dark scarring. I was so disappointed, especially because before that, my skin had finally been probably at the best that its ever been in such a long time.

I’m really gutted that I have spent £39 on a serum that has made me breakout so badly and scarred my skin. As I’ve said, I read really positive reviews on this serum so it may just not have been the right product for me. However, I really wanted to share my experience of this product.

    That’s so annoying to spend so much money on something and find it doesn’t work for you! Hopefully you find an alternative that’s better for you. I personally don’t use serums but that’s mainly because I don’t have a clue where to start with them!

      It’s frustrating because I’ve used cheaper ones that have worked so well for me. There must be an ingredient in there that just makes my skin react. Thanks for reading!

    Definitely give The Body Shop Drops of Youth serum a go if you haven’t already, I really like it! So disappointing that the Mabel & Meg wasn’t for you but I guess we can’t love everything we try! xx
