So it's been a little longer than 2 weeks now and here I am checking back in.
I kept thinking about getting the serum because of how much I really liked it. But I knew it wasn't such a great idea (yet) because of how expensive it is, so I went looking around other brands that I use to find a similar product. Just to see if I could find something I like there too. Then I could compare and decide whether it'll be worth it to get the ANIA serum.
And so the "2nd part" of my adventure began. I went to check on LUSH first and I found a moisturising serum bar called Full of Grace. It looked really cool but not exactly what I wanted. But I was amazed at how easily the bar melts, it's so weird. Was tempted it get it just because of that. I'm starting to learn more about myself with how I decided whether something is worth buying lols Whichhhh does makes me wonder if it's worth it to get ANIA just because it's shimmery. Does sound really stupid and wasteful =.=
Anyway, then I checked on Kiehl's and I found a serum that has similar brightening properties. It made me realised that brightening serum is much more common than I had previously knew. This serum also has the same shimmering effect though not as "strong" but I was still mesmerised by it. It's called Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution, it's targeted more on clearing dark spots and also giving your skin an inner glow. I also believe it's meant for more mature women (kinda) but it is also suitable for younger women who wants to start their skincare early. It also works perfectly well with my Ultra Facial Cream. The serum is also cheaper, $92 for 30ml, whereas ANIA is $129 for the same quantity.
I got some samples to test it out:D So.. We'll see how it goes! It sure does have similar properties to ANIA, so I'm hopeful.
