Sunday Riley Skin Adrenaline: Review

8:23:00 AM

So in the time it took me to finally get around to writing this post, it seems Sunday Riley has either discontinued this product or it's unavailable for purchase right now because it's getting reformulated or repackaged.

Per Nordstrom's website: "A lightweight moisturizer and instant radiance booster, perfect for normal to oily skin. Provides anti-aging actives in a non-oily base, making it a great alternative for oilier skin types. Maximum concentrations of key actives which rejuvenate lackluster skin, regulate epidermal growth factors for fibroblast development, and build youthful, dense collagen." The retail was $125 for 50ml.

The texture is a thicker gel creme. It's got a sweet scent to it, very fruit like and a bit too sweet. However, I do prefer the sweet fruit scent to powdery perfume scented skincare. Sadly this is so sticky. It was not my favorite thing to put on just because of the sticky texture. I had to force myself to use it all up, which is never good for an expensive skincare item. It's got a lot of great antioxidants and with a thinner, less sticky texture I would have loved to try this as a serum. It's too thick to be a serum, and too thin and sticky to be a moisturizer I use. It's a gel creme. It leaves a sticky film on my face that dries into a shiny coating if you don't cover it with another moisturizer.

Hopefully it's being reformulated because it's an interesting formula that I would like to try out again if it wasn't so unpleasant to use texture wise. It did give a boost to my skin, meaning it gave a glow like a good mask. It didn't do much for my forehead fine lines. It has limited anti-aging capabilities. But if reformulated with a better texture it could be a nice serum or light gel creme moisturizer for day antioxidant use.
