I don't have a lot of experience with different serums, as I only started using them in the past few years or so. It takes many months to get through a single bottle, so there it is. I've used skin tone correctors (Vichy, Clinique) which I like, but haven't really expanded beyond that.

I would like to take a moment to explain why it takes me forever to review skincare. My trialling practices are as follows:
1. Trial only one product at a time. Skincare, colored cosmetics, it doesn't matter; certain colored products can cause irritations (itchy eyes from liners, for example, or breakout on cheeks due to blush) and I need to be able to isolate a cause if a reaction does occur.
2. Start slowly. Own's Firming Silk Concentrate is meant to be applied twice a day, so to start, I apply it once a day, every other day. Sometimes we can have delayed reactions, so I might not realize that something is causing problems until a day or so later. If I've already applied it five times between then, though, the effect is probably even worse than it could have been if I spread it out and started slow. This also means that when I'm testing a replacement to a product (e.g., a new eye cream), I make sure I have enough of the old one to finish out the trial period.
3. After about a week or two of alternating the new item, I go ahead and start using it 1x/2x daily, if I haven't seen any ill effects or cause for alarm. If I have, since I haven't changed anything else, the new item is usually the culprit, and I stop.
There you have it. The craziness that is Larie. However, I do think it's important not to overwhelm my skin with something new, and it's crucial that I be able to isolate a single new product in case something goes wrong. What's your approach to new skincare?
