I’m kicking off the week with a brand new piece of skincare that has quickly become a part of my every day routine: the Cocoa Noir Time Reverse Facial Serum* by the lovely people at Dr Botanicals. 

This cruelty free and vegan friendly brand are the creators of a fantastic range of skincare for both the body and the face. I was recently introduced to Dr Botanicals and instantly fell in love with their Moroccan Rose and Shea Butter Body Repairing Cream, which is still one of my favourite products to use after a long hot bath. 

The Cocoa Noir Facial Serum is a refined blend of natural oils that are designed to improve the complexion creating a youthful and nourished effect. It contains geranium flower oil, which acts as an antibacterial and an antioxidant, seabuckthorn fruit oil, which promotes hydration and elasticity and neroli oil, which reduces uneven skin tone and visible blemishes. As I have a combination skin type, this seemed like a fantastic product for me to try as it aims to improve upon many of my skincare concerns. 

It is a fairly sweet smelling product that I would describe as being almost marzipan-like. I like to apply two to three drops onto my fingertips and lightly tap the serum onto my skin. I then apply my usual moisturiser and make up, continuing as normal, incorporating the product into my daily routine.

It is a lovely and dry serum that doesn’t feel oily on the skin as it soaks in pretty much straight away. I have only been using the product for a short while and so I don’t feel that I can yet provide a full review of the serum, however my first impressions are very positive and I will continue to use it as part of my skincare routine. 

I would really recommend having a look through the Dr Botanicals collection as they have some really great products available. If you like the sound of the Cocoa Noir Facial Serum, Dr Botanicals currently have this product on a promotional offer, and so if you use the code MADOLYN1 at the checkout throughout the month of May, then you can receive the serum for just £19.99.
