Editor's Note: For those of you that are new to Beauty Beyond Borders, our goal is to change the way you feel and think about yourself, starting with your skin. We take our curation process very seriously and test countless products from Korea, Japan, and Taiwan to bring you the best of skincare.
In the US, nearly 50% of women say they feel unattractive without makeup. Our goal from the beginning is to change that and we love brands that ban together to do the same. Nearly 6 months ago, we started speaking to V10 Plus - a luxurious Japanese skincare line focused on creating customizable skincare solutions to back your natural glow. These products aim to give you the confidence to go out barefaced any day of the week - to feel beautiful in your own skin. Their line of serums are free of parabens, artificial colors, mineral oils and chemical fragrances.
If you're new to serums, these potent formulas deliver active ingredients to your skin. You can use them on their own, or combine a few serums based on what your skincare goals are. There are 10 powerful serums so you can personalize your skincare routine:
For my combination skin, I'm currently using the BioCell Serum (this serum has apple stem cells in it, and the V10 team calls it botox in a bottle), as well as the Vitamin C Serum (sure - there's no shortage of skincare with products with Vitamin C. I love this one because it's formulated with ingredients that also help manage sebum secretion and it's helped with some occasional scarring from minor acne breakouts!).
With so many options to choose from, it can be overwhelming to find the best serum for your skin, so we've put together a questionnaire to help you figure out which serums would work best for you. Click here to download the questionnaire and start customizing your skincare solutions. We will also talk in-depth about each of the products in future blog posts so be sure to stay tuned for that.
Ultimately, when we select the products in our shop we're looking at how effective each product is, what the ingredients are, and how each company approaches skincare. V10 Plus checks off all our criteria and we're so excited to introduce their products to you. You can mix and match the serums (we've used up to 3 for our nighttime routine) depending on your skincare concerns. Just a drop or two can do wonders for your skin - even if you just use them at night before bed. Their entire line ships for free starting today so go ahead and give them a try. We'd love to hear what you think!
