Some while ago I was selected from www.parfuemerie-pieper.de (a German perfumery) to test a serum from Declaré, a brand from Switzerland. I was really happy being selected for this test, because the weather here had been cold for a long time (finally it is summer) and my skin was stressed and dried up really badly.
The serum I tested is called Declaré Anti-Irritation Serum and below you can see the package I received. Very cute packaging! Thanks to the Pieper-team at this point!
Here is the description from Declaré’s web page (in German):

Basically it says that it reduces dullness, tired appearance and irritations of you skin. Your redness should minimise and your skin gets moisturized and your skin tone is evened out. By soothing your skin in this way and providing moisture the appearance of fine lines is reduced, too.
Here are the pictures for the packaging:
The bottle looks nice and high-quality, somehow it looks mature, too, because of the golden cap.
The cap has an integrated pipette to obtain the serum. It provides the perfect amount for covering your face.
On the bottle you’ll find the description how to use the product, but the package contained also a detailed instruction/manual within. the bottle contains 50 ml which is really a lot considering how much you need for covering your face.
While turning the cap you can either suck the serum inside the pipette or release it. If the cap is down it is released. If it is up, you know there is serum inside your pipette.
The consistency of the serum is runny. It is a slightly milky fluid with a flowery/soapy scent that I really like a lot.
Did it work? Yes it did! My skin is not as dry as it was before. It is less irritated and feels smooth. I loved trying this product and I still love it. It needs some time to absorb and first it feels a tiny bit sticky, but after continuing with your skin care routine you don’t feel it anymore. I’m happy I got it for testing and I know that it will be my best friend as soon as the weather gets colder again.
It can be purchased for around 40 Euro, which is quite a lot and in my opinion the only downside of the product. But it will promise you high quality on the other side.
