2 BE TRUE is a new skincare company founded on the principles that the skincare industry is full of lies and exaggeration. This company, being tired of the lies and exaggeration that goes on in the industry, decided to do something about it and built a new company that is based on ethically made, vegan and all-natural skincare. It is cruelty-free, paraben-free, phthalate-free, dye-free and gluten-free. They create unique and loved products. It is their belief that the last thing we need is a line of flashy, hyped-up creams and cleansers.
Today I would like to review one of their core products, GLOW SERUM. This product was sent to me for review. The powerhouse formula contains five organics that have shown to reduce dullness and increase skin's natural glow. It contains DMAE, Blue Green Algae, Aloe Vera, White Willow and Neem. Scientifically engineered to even skin tone and create a 'light-reflective' complexion. This product is applied before makeup, it delivers fast results and lasts all day long. DMAE & Blue Green Algae are radiance boosting ingredients that help impart a healthy glow all while delivering hydration to help soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Neem delays the obvious signs of aging, due to its regenerative properties. Aloe Vera and White Willow give skin a healthy serving of antioxidants. GLOW SERUM extends the life of cells and inhibits the cross-linking of proteins, which gives the skin a toned and firm appearance.
Let's look at each special ingredient in depth now and discover the properties that help make GLOW SERUM so special. Without each special ingredient, the serum wouldn't be able to brighten, firm, tone and lift the skin. Nor would it be able to make is smoother, more hydrated or make skin look so radiant.
DMAE is a nutrient that is a naturally-occurring substance with significant anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties. Numerous studies have show that topical application of DMAE increases the appearance of firmness, tone and lift of the skin. It also improves the skin's elasticity and luminosity, helping to decrease the look of fine lines and wrinkles while brightening the skin and evening out imperfections. Skin looks firmer, lifted, smoother and less lined. It has been shown that if a pea-sized drop of a DMAE-containing lotion is spread on one side of the face, gently rubbed into the nasolabial fold, around the eye, forehead, under the chin and on the neck, results can be seen in about 20 minutes. The side of the face and jaw line with the DMAE will appear more contoured, the eye will be open wider, the nasolabial fold decreased. The effect is dramatic. There will also be an immediate reduction in lines and wrinkles. DMAE is also outstanding in tightening up the dimpled skin on the back of the thighs and the upper arms.
Blue Green Algae contains Vitamin E, selenium and tyrosine, all of which are known for their powerful anti-aging effects. The antioxidants present in tyrosine help eliminate free radicals and slow down the aging of skin cells. The algae is also a great source of chlorophyll, which has cleansing properties and it also helps retain moisture which is a key to maintaining the appearance of smoother, more hydrated, dewy looking skin. If your skin has been looking kind of dull lately, blue green algae applied topically can do wonders for the skin. It has a high content of calcium, iron, phosphorus and Vitamins A, B12 and E, so it works over time to fight free radicals, purifying your system and thereby restoring your skin's vitality. It also brings about faster cell turnover, thereby helping the skin heal faster. Increasing the skin's metabolism is key to maintaining a consistent healthy glow, so you are naturally shedding old dead skin cells faster that make your skin look sallow and dull. Because Blue Green Algae is high in proteins and fatty acids, it helps to lift and tone the skin. Second, the fatty acids work down deep to help firm and tighten skin's appearance. Blue Green Algae helps the body produce new, healthy cells faster. When that happens, one is left with fresh, glowing skin.
Aloe Vera is typically used as a healing agent when someone has gotten a burn on their skin and it needs relief. It also has multiple benefits for the skin. Aloe contains antioxidants, enzymes, Vitamin A and C, and it is extremely anti-inflammatory. The enzymes in it can also help exfoliate the skin to make it smoother. It has naturally occurring nutrients and moisturizing elements to help increase collagen production, firm up skin and plump out wrinkles. Antioxidants found within Aloe Vera protect skin from the damage caused by free radicals and can also reduce the look of age spots for an even, more balanced complexion. It is no wonder that it is the superstar beauty essential for centuries. Aloe Vera rejuvenates, hydrates, and keeps skin looking fresh all the time. It is a great naturally occurring antioxidant that reverses the oxidative damage experienced by the skin, which reduces dullness and gives skin a natural glow.
White Willow has powerful anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and antioxidant properties. The extract is used for healthy and glowing skin. It is a natural exfoliant and a remedy for acne. Fighting the free radicals with its antioxidant properties, White Willow Bark extract is a natural boost when it comes to rejuvenation. When applied topically, the extract has anti-aging properties, so that it helps to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and fights oxidative stress. Tannins and astringent properties of this extract contribute to the overall health of the skin. White willow bark helps to exfoliate your skin by sloughing off dead skin cells, making way for fresh, bright and radiant skin.
Neem is a versatile plant with many health benefits. The Neem tree has been acknowledged as the "Wonder Tree" because each part of the tree (from its leaves, bark, seeds, flowers, fruit) exudes beneficial properties that can be used for different skin care purposes. Neem delays the obvious signs of aging, thanks to its regenerative properties. It also reduces hyperpigmentation, helps get rid of dark circles, moisturizes and softens the skin. The composition of Neem helps to purify the skin and gives it a luminous glow.
I definitely feel like 2 BE TRUE GLOW SERUM is a wonderful serum that helps the skin feel better by looking better. Skin naturally exfoliates, glows, hyperpigmentation lifts and skin feel smoother. I used this over a 4-week period and noticed a difference in my skin whereby it looks and feels better.
