Racinne Ultimate Hydra Perfection

My skin has been a little dehydrated ever since I got back from Hawaii so I was grateful for the chance to test out a new (to me) skincare brand upon my return. The brand in question is Racinne, an international cosmetics company that utilizes Korean biotechnology in all of its products. 

I've been using the Ultimate Hydra Perfection line, which combines callus extract from highly refined grapes along with seven other active ingredients (including seaweed and gingko) to create a powerful antioxidant formula. The natural antioxidants repair skin damaged by the harsh environment, facilitates skin regeneration, hydrates, and locks in cell nutrients, providing a youthful radiant glow.

After cleansing and toning, I first apply the Essentialift Supplement Serum ($43.99 CAD). As you can see, there is a dropper that enables you to dispense just a small amount of the product without waste. The serum is not super liquid-y but still light on the skin.

Next, I apply the Ultimate Defence Illuminating Cream ($39.99 CAD). The cream is on the thicker side but isn't too heavy.

Lastly,  I finish with the Contour Brightening Eye Cream ($22.99 CAD), which is more of clear gel than a cream. The applicator for this is super easy to use; I simply apply a small amount of product onto my ring finger and pat it in a C-shape around my eye socket.

So far I've been really impressed with this line! Not only does it smell great, but the packaging looks luxe and feels expensive. Furthermore, none of the products have caused breakouts (always a concern when trying out new skincare) and seem to work with my oily/combination skin despite not being an "oil-free" formula.

If you're on the lookout for a new skincare brand, I have nothing but good things to say about Racinne. And if Ultimate Hydra Perfection isn't your thing, there are two other lines to choose from: Ultimate Aqua Blanc and Ultimate Youth Power. Shop online here.
