Review: Pomé Skin & Hair Hydrating Serum

Have you packed your travel bag and thought, “Oh I wish there aren’t so many products I need to bring!” and guess what… this little silver bottle is just that. That perfect travel companion. Or your everyday saviour.

Introducing …

Pomé (Pom-aye) Skin & Hair Hydrating Serum

P1070842ER

What is it?

It is an all-in-one serum for use on BOTH the skin and hair.

It contains the potent combinations and antioxidizing properties of Pomegranate Seed and Argan Oil (also known as Moroccan Oil).

It is rich in Omega-5 (one of the most potent antioxidants known to modern science) Pomegranate Seed Oil gives you a non-greasy moisturiser for the skin.

Argan Oil is rich in Omega-6, it nourishes and conditions dry damaged hair, while helping to reduce split ends and breakage.

-How did it all happen?-

“....after having successfully created a natural range of skin and hair care products, the desire arose to create an edgy new product with WOW FACTOR, unlike anything else available on the market. The goal was to successfully combine two potent carrier oils to create a unique treatment serum that could be used on both the skin & hair. After considerable research, Pomegranate and Argan Oil stood out for their innate healing abilities….6 months of formulation testing and trials conducted by a qualified beauty therapist and Pomé Serum was born.

Pomé Serum was officially launched in September 2011. It took approx 8-9 months of research and testing to get just right eg, making sure the combination of oils were compatible and a seemless blend

The basis for our product concept was to create a product with a myriad of capabilities replacing many add on products.”

-Ingredients-

Organic Pomegranate Seed Oil which contains Punicic Acid (Omega-5) – it is one of the most potent antioxidants known to modern science (at least 6 times more potent than Grape Seed Extract) – and its conjugated molecular structure allows it to infuse easily into the skin. (For further information, please visit HERE)

Argan Oil comes from the nuts of the Argan Tree which grows only in the South Western part of Morocco, again hence the reference to Moroccan Oil. Argan Oil is rich in Omega-6 (Linoleic Acid) and Vitamin E. It has a very light molecular weight which makes it non-greasy and absorbs into the skin and the hair very quickly.

Macadamia Nut & Sweet Almond Oil
Macadamia Nut Oil is rich in essential fatty acids and mimics the natural sebum (oil secretion) of our body. This replication of the natural oils our scalp produces gives us the protection our skin needs.

Sweet Almond Oil comprises of several vitamins – namely A, B1, B2, B6 and E. Making your skin soft and supple is its main priority. This oil is a natural moisturiser that suits all skin types.

Vitamins A, B, C and E
Vitamin A – helps improve immunity and highly beneficial for the health of your skin and hair
Vitamin B – assists in promoting healthy skin cell generation
Vitamin C – extremely high in antioxidant and helps to prevent collagen damage
Vitamin E – protects the cells from UV and free radicals damage

Cyclopentasiloxane & Dimethiconol – derived from a combination of Silica (sand) and Quartz. This adds silk and shine to the hair.

Coco-Caprylate – a naturally derived oil from coconuts. This gives you the velvety feel to the skin.

My experience

I love the smell! It smells of fresh tangerine mandarins… so refreshing!

I had been incorporating this serum into my skincare routine for the past several weeks and I feel nourished each time I put it on. My skin feels soft and supple the next morning. No flaky bits. It is also works surprisingly well under makeup. I have done so, instead of using extra primer I just use this and apply foundation. It leaves a glow on your skin, for those who are of oily skin may not be too keen. For your information, my skin has been leaning towards Normal/Dry lately hence this serum has been my saviour.

In days I am travelling, this serum also works so lovely on the hair as heat protectant and detangler… and leave in conditioner. Greasy? No, I don’t find it so.

Do I recommend? Yes. At AU$24.95 this is much more affordable than the vast majority of other serums in the market. You only need a pump for your whole face and spread the rest onto your neck and décolletage. You’ll be surprised how much you are saving just buy getting this one serum.

Will I repurchase? Yes =)
