iS Clinical Active Serum is an anti-ageing, anti-acneic and brightening product that has a multi-purpose formula that generates rapid and dramatic improvements in skin quality. It claims to diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and uneven pigmentation, while smoothing texture and being anti-acneic.

When I applied this serum to my skin the first time, I was very surprised, since it has a very strong alcohol smell and it tingles the skin for a minute or so. It is also very runny and does not have the same texture as most serums do. I have an oily skin tone that is acne-prone and I find that this serum helps to control my breakouts. I also find that my skin is looking clearer since I started using it.

I am not sure whether this product will work for all skin types, though, and it is a bit costly. Having said that, a small amount goes a long way.

Price: R670 (15ml), R1 160 (30ml)
