1.0mm Derma Roller + Eye Serum + Anti-aging Serum Review

I had never even heard of a Derma Roller before Petunia Skincare sent me this bundle. Total disclosure: I was petrified when I opened the package and saw what was inside... the Derma Rollerkinda sorta looks like a medieval torture device, but I promise it's nowhere near as intimidating as it seems! I used this not only on my face to reduce the size of my pores and help my moisturizer soak into my skin better, but also on areas where I have that dreaded ugly cellulite.

I read the directions over a few times and decided I was ready to go. 

Starting with a clean, freshly washed surface, take the Derma Roller and, using steady pressure, roll over the affected area in all 4 directions (up, down, and side to side) 10 times. While you can use the Derma Roller on its own, I would definitely recommend using it in conjunction with a serum and / or moisturizer in order to maximize your results. This was actually featured on The Doctors, and helps with anti aging, can fade and reduce scars, wrinkles and cellulite, and can possibly aid in the regrowth of thinning hair. While I haven't used it for hair regrowth purposes, I *think* I've noticed a difference in the cellulite behind my legs and while I don't have a lot of issues with anti-aging just yet, my skin is definitely softer and my pores seem smaller. I've also noticed my skin texture is more even! I only use it around 3 times a week, and only at night because of the fact that it does leave my skin a little red afterwards (which is totally gone by the time I wake up). 

Next, I applied their Hyaluronic Acid Serum, and was amazed at how quickly it was absorbed into my skin. Petunia's Hyaluronic Acid Serum is cruelty free and only uses vegan and natural active ingredients, plus it's made in the USA. I really like that this is a thicker consistency, as it allows me to have more control over where I spread it and I've definitely noticed a difference in the tone and texture of my skin. There was no real scent, maybe a slight one, but it was on the fresher side, and there was no leftover gunky feeling left, even when I applied my tinted moisturizer afterwards. The Vitamin C and Ferulic Acid combination makes for a gentler combination on my skin and are full of great antioxidants and help protect from free radicals and UVA/UVB rays, so I know I'm protected even on days I forget to wear sunscreen.

Finally, I used Petunia's Revitalize Eye Serum on both my under eye and eyelid area twice a day after washing my face and before moisturizing. As both an insomniac and a mom to a teething little dude, my poor under eyes have taken quite a beating, and have been puffy and on the dark side. As being one of the first things people see, taking care of my eye area has become a huge priority. After a little over three weeks of use, Revitalize Eye Serum has helped to de-puff and lighten my poor tired eyes and helped make me seem bright eyed and bushy tailed again! It is absorbed into my skin really fast and has no offensive smell nor does it leave any type of residue!

Overall, this is a great bundle to pick up to help start (or continue) your skin care regimen!
