Physicians Formula Rose All Day Serum is a new brightening ant tightening highlighter that will be available at drugstores for Spring 2018. Did you catch “highlighter” in that sentence? This is the most confusing product ever because it has no idea what it wants to be. Is it a serum? Is it a highlighter? Is it both?
Here’s the details!
Physicians Formula Rose All Day Oil-Free Serum arrives in a gorgeous white bottle with pink rose petals decorating the bottle. It’s quite a beautiful presented piece of skincare (or makeup if you will) and will look quite lovely on your vanity. As you may know I’m a fan of Physicians Formula Argan Wear Ultra Nourishing Argan Oil which led to the recent purchase of the Rose All Day Oil-Free Serum because at a glance I thought it would be along the lines of Pixi’s Rose Oil Blend (which I hated in the pass but weirdly really like now).
The bottle reads that it brightens and tightens but I failed to read further as the back of the bottle states it’s a “pearluminous” formula. I just assumed it was facial oil but in reality it’s more of a highlighter. I admit I was disappointed about that because I don’t really love highlighters.
If you’re a minimal makeup user with smoother, younger skin this could be a very flattering product. It’s a sheer iridescent pink shade that adds a touch of radiance to skin. The texture is a lightweight serum that has a subtle rose fragrance. It provides very little moisture and I’m unsure if it actually tightened anything. I’d say it was more of a liquid highlighter versus a skincare product since I didn’t really notice any major difference in my skin when using it. It actually pairs up nicely on bare skin with a little cheek stain worn under it as it’ll add a hint of a luminous glow without crazy disco ball shimmer. It’s one of the less dramatic highlighters that you’ll run across on the market at the moment since most brands focus on a very dramatic glow.
Physicians Formula Rose All Day Oil-Free Serum isn’t really something I loved. I thought it was a facial oil but in reality the only benefits it really has would be the ability to create a subtle radiant glow on your complexion. If that’s what you’re seeking you might just love this but if you’re looking for long term skincare benefits you likely won’t get them with this product.
