e.l.f. Beauty Shield Vitamin C Pollution Prevention Serum Review

e.l.f. Beauty Shield

When shopping for a new protective serum, I was delighted to discover the new e.l.f. Beauty Shield Vitamin C Pollution Prevention Serum.

Protective Serum

This product had everything I was looking for in an affordable serum. It is formulated with Vitamin E, Pomegranate Extract, and of course, Vitamin C. These ingredients work together to reduce fine lines, brighten your skin tone, and help protect your skin against environmental aggressors.

It should also be noted that this formula is created without parabens, sulfates, phthalates or alcohol. Since this is an alcohol-free serum, you can rest assured that it won’t be drying or irritating. That’s perfect for those with sensitive skin!

I purchased this serum from elf.com for $16.00.

To use this protective serum, apply 4-5 drops onto fingertips and massage it into clean, dry skin. Apply the serum to your face, neck, and chest. Give the serum 3-5 minutes to dry before moving onto the next step in your skincare regimen. This serum should be used in the morning or in the evening, but not both.

I’m loving this serum, it’s gentle and I find that it dries pretty quickly. For me waiting the 3-5 minutes for it to dry wasn’t necessary, but this may not be true for everyone. I apply this serum in the morning, as I have a different serum I like to use with my nighttime skincare regimen. I didn’t notice any fragrance with this serum and I found the consistency to be watery. Both of these aspects are appealing to me, I don’t like over-powering fragrance in skincare products or oily serums since I already have combination skin.

Bottom Line: This is an effective and affordable serum, I recommend adding it into your skincare routine to brighten and protect your skin.

What’s your favorite serum?

    Sounds like a great find! I hate serums with alcohol, they dry my skin out way too much and then they end up feeling oily later.
