Own Firming Silk Concentrate Review

Own Firming Silk Concentrate Review

It seems like serums are the current It Skin Care product. Every magazine and beauty blog is talking about serums and how amazing they are for your skin. Thanks to iFabbo and Own Skin Care, I had a chance to try Own Firming Silk Concentrate and review it for Logical Harmony readers. Own is certified cruelty free by Leaping Bunny and is certified vegan by Vegan Action – two certifications that you can always trust.

I was curious to try out the Firming Silk Concentrate serum. Especially after how much I loved the Lifting Eye Cream from Own. With all the buzz about how amazing a serum is to add to your routine, going into summer seemed like the perfect time to give it a try as well. It’s important to evaluate and adjust your skincare routine as the seasons change. This also makes it a great time to add new products into your skin care routine.

Claims: “Visibly reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles for more vibrant skin… a power-packed serum that’s proven to absorb easily without leaving a residue. Works with your own body’s chemistry to reactivate healthy processes and rebuild the skin’s structures for brighter, taut, and genuinely younger-looking skin.”

Ingredients: Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Coco-Caprylate, Conjugated Linoleic Acid*, Tocopherol

*CLA Patented Plant Technology™, not from an animal source. While the product name includes the word silk, this is not an ingredient in the serum. None of the ingredients used are animal derived. This product is certified vegan.

Pros: The serum absorbs quickly and does not leave a residue as promised. I noticed that when I used the serum morning and night, I saw a visible improvement in the tone and condition of my skin. The formula is also retinol free, fragrance free, sulfate free and paraben free.

Cons: In order to get good product coverage over my face, neck and chest I found myself using slightly more than the directions advised. It’s very important to extend your facial skin care routine beyond just your face and this shouldn’t be overlooked.

The Verdict: I’m really happy with this serum! I saw visible results with daily use. Just as I had read about serums, it seemed even more powerful when layered underneath a moisturizer. The light forumula was great because even though what you’re putting on your face packs some heavy duty benefits, it didn’t feel like a heavy product at all. It wasn’t greasy or oily. When I used it in the mornings, I had no problems with the wear of my makeup during the day.

If you’re new to serums or just looking to try something new, I would give Own Firming Silk Concentrate a try.

    Do you have a place where you share your own personal skin care/makeup routine? With all the cleansers, serums, toners, face masks etc., I get confused as to what I should be doing…and I don’t want to overwhelm my face with too many products especially since I have sensitive skin and am prone to acne.

      Hi Rachel!

      I can definitely do a post about my skin care routine! I agree that it does get confusing and overwhelming. For my skin, I use a variety of products but also find that the more simple the routine the better.
