My take on the Plunge Watermelon brightening serum:

I am using this serum since 25 days now. I use this product post cleansing and toning. All I do is take a small amount of serum on both the side of my cheeks, over my forehead and neck, pat it onto my skin until it sinks in. It quickly absorbs into my skin and gives a soft supple feel, my skin feels hydrated and moisturized and the soothing fragrance adds more freshness. The product says it reduces uneven skin tone. Well I have an uneven skin tone and that is the only reason I got my hands on this serum. I saw reviews about the product from some well-known YouTubers, they had given great reviews about it and so I bought it instead of it being an expensive one. After all investing in good skincare is very important. Now to be honest I have no change in my uneven skin tone. Yes my skin surely feels nourished and the serum adds glow to my face but sadly it did not help me to even out my uneven skin tone & also what disappointed me is that the product has a very little of quantity which lasts not more than 35 days (at least for me). If you guys are looking for a hydrating & moisturizing serum this can surely be a good product for you.

Pros of the Plunge watermelon brightening serum:

  • Hydrating
  • Moisturizing
  • Boosts glow
  • Light weight & quickly absorbs
  • Soothing fragrance

Cons of the Plunge watermelon brightening serum:

  • Expensive
  • Less quantity
  • Does not even out skin

Rating: 3/5

Will I repurchase it?

No! I won’t.

Do I recommend?

Yes, only if you are looking for a good quality hydrating and moisturizing serum & No, if you are expecting an even skin tone.

That’s all for today’s review guys. Hope it helps you all.  Feel free to share your reviews with me if any.

See you all, take care ❤ lots of love 🙂

So we are going to include all these steps in our facial and get a super supple and glowing skin. Let’s get started.

  1. Cleansing

For cleansing we need fresh AloeVera gel and a lemon. Yes cleansing skin is this easy! Take 2 teaspoons of AloeVera gel and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice and few drops of rose water to it. Mix it well and massage it on clean face.  Massage well in circular motion to let the goodness of it absorb into your skin. Let it just be for 5 minutes and wipe it off with a clean wet towel or a wet cotton ball.

  1. Exfoliating

While doing facial it is extremely important to exfoliate your skin to get rid of all the dead skin cell on your skin and for that we need is AloeVera and Rice flour. Put some rice flour on to the AloeVera and scrub it onto face and if you are using AloeVera gel mix the rice flour to it and use. Rice flour helps in brightening skin and can be used as a mild scrub for sensitive skin. Scrub gently for 2-3 minutes. And let it stay it on your skin while you do the next step Steaming.

  1. Steaming

So guys this is an optional step. There are many people who are not comfortable with steaming. So if you skip this step wipe your face with wet towel when done with exfoliating.

  1. Toning

After scrubbing my face I like to use a toner and a very mild toner is Rose water. So, you can just spray some rose water after Exfoliating also you can make a toner using AloeVera gel and rose water.

  1. Moisturizing

The last and the most important step is moisturizing. For that you need 1 Vitamin E capsule. Take some AloeVera gel add in 1 Vitamin E capsule to it and mix it well. Apply it on face and leave it on for good 30 minutes. Vitamin E oil is sticky and can make your skin feel oily but it nourishes your skin a lot and helps you give a soft, supple and moisturized skin. Wash it off with luke warm water after 30 minutes.

Fresh AloeVera gel

How often should this facial be done?

You can do this facial once in 15 days.  I also recommend applying fresh AloeVera gel every night to keep skin nourished, irritation free, soft and glowing. Also with regular use of AloeVera gel you can find your skin to be spotless and youthful. Also remember this is not going to happen overnight. Regular use will definitely give you best results.
