Dot & Key was one skincare brand that I was in love with right from day 1; sorry I haven’t tried much from their brand but their packaging made me so awestruck and their products dealing with skin issues is amazing. And finally I got my hands on few of their products recently, and they’ve also launched their new face serums in 4 variants, out of which I got one of it and shall review it soon. In this post, I’ll be talking about this Skin Awakening Moisture Boost Face Serum, which I’ve been using for a couple of weeks.

The natural goodness of this vitamin-boost face serum energizes your skin every morning, while gently soothing sensitive or irritated areas. Rise and shine, indeed.

What coffee is to the body, Dot & Key Skin Awakening Moisture Boost Face Serum is to the skin. Enriched with vitamins, this face serum rejuvenates you with icy peppermint oil and soothing lavender oil. It is also specially formulated with high-quality spent grain wax, cold processed Argan oil and Shea butter to provide the right moisturization and effective relief to sensitive and irritated skin. Contains Vitamin C and Vitamin E to give your skin the much needed daily nutrition. Vitamins boost collagen production to give firmer, more plump skin and smoothens out fine lines and wrinkles. The antioxidant properties of Vitamin C and E help fight free radicals resulting in anti aging action and younger looking skin. Lavender oil’s anti-inflammatory properties makes it great for soothing and healing skin that is irritated or reddened from the sun, insect bites, or bacteria. Just the kind of wake-up-call your skin needs to retain that healthy glow.

Packaging, as I said in the intro itself, the Dot & Key products have a peculiar and nowhere-else-seen kind of packaging. They are absolutely so adorable that you never wanna throw them. The serum comes in very sturdy, hard cardboard box with all the info about the product mentioned on it. Even the serum bottle looks so adorably cute, reminds me of some Korean product. It comes in a pale mint colored bottle with a white cap, and does have a pump dispenser. The bottle is quite petite and handy that it can be carried while travelling.

The serum has a white creme-gel consistency and has a kind of essential oil fragrance to it. The fragrance puts me down; it goes a bit strong when you start applying the serum, but it mellows down in 5-10 minutes. And also this serum has got that cooling sensation right when you apply and this as well subsides in 5 minutes, and everything is just so normal afterwards. I love how the cooling effect gives a quick blood rush to the face and makes it instantly plump and hydrated. The serum feels very light and comfortable on the skin. Did not irritate my skin (not even near my eye area as I do apply all over my eyes too), nor felt greasy or tacky. I like the way it is just doing its job of a serum. It penetrates deep into the skin hydrating it and bringing a glow to the skin. I’ve been using it from 2-3 weeks (on my third week now) and I was surprised to see right from my first use, that this serum gives me a boost of glow besides making it look soft and plump. Usually when I apply any serum, it would make me look plump but not with a glow which I found while using this. The cooling sensation soothes and relaxes fatigued skin and awakens it. Sometimes, when I go lazy then my two-step tone and serum routine would consist this, and for my combination skin (in this monsoon weather) this serum alone would keep me moisturized for the day.

Overall, an unexpected surprise from Dot & Key, I seriously did not even expect this Moisture Boost serum would become my quick favorite. If you are looking for a good, lightweight and intense hydrating serum then you should definitely give this a try. I’m sure results might not be so quick for everyone, a regular use of this serum brings desired results and also depends on individual’s skin condition.
