How To Use Our WISHFUL Thirst Trap Juice HA3 & Peptide Serum!
Unlike your everyday essentials – hi there, cleanser, toner and moisturizer – serum tends to go under the radar. To us, that’s so sad, because a serum is one of the hardest-working products in the skincare family. Serums are packed with active ingredients that can make a swift change to your skin concerns by delivering a high dose of powerful ingredients deep into your epidermis.
That’s why we created our WISHFUL Thirst Trap Juice HA3 & Peptide Serum, a formidable combo of skin-firming peptides, skin-brightening niacinamide, and a deeply hydrating combo of three types of hyaluronic acid for ultimate glowy, supple, bouncy skin.
We’ve put together a full debrief so you have everything you need to get started with our WISHFUL Thirst Trap Juice HA3 & Peptide Serum.
How do I use Thirst Trap Juice Serum in my routine?
- Use our Thirst Trap Juice Serum like any other serum: after you’ve cleansed and toned and before moisturizer and face oil. Three to four drops should be plenty for your full face.
- If you use more than one serum in your routine, then use the serum with the thinnest consistency first.
- Use it as part of your morning and evening routine and always follow with a moisturizer (and a face oil, if you have one) to lock in all the goodness.
Is the Thirst Trap Juice Serum the same formula as the Thirst Trap Cocoon Mask?
Our Thirst Trap Juice Serum was inspired by the incredible hydrating powers of the mask, but we have created a more concentrated and intense formula that gives long-lasting benefits as well as immediate results. The serum has the addition of peptides to firm, tighten and strengthen the skin and a higher concentration of sodium hyaluronate, plus two more types of hyaluronic acid to penetrate the epidermis at every level.
The mask is great for an instant hit of hydration, while the serum offers longer-lasting results and is more travel and eco-friendly for your everyday routine.
Can I use the serum with the sheet mask?
Yes! After cleansing and toning, apply the Thirst Trap Cocoon Mask, leave on for 20 to 30 minutes, allow the essence to fully absorb into your skin, then while still damp, apply Thirst Trap Juice HA3 & Peptide Serum generously across your face and décolleté.
What’s in Thirst Trap Juice HA3 & Peptide Serum?
Hyaluronic Acid: Holds up to 1000 times its weight in water to create a plumping effect, while it also forms a moisturizing film on the surface of the skin for visible, surface-level hydration.
Sodium Hyaluronate: Penetrates the upper layers of the skin and helps to smooth out fine lines.
Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid: Works to hydrate the deeper layers of the skin and has powerful regenerating properties.
Aloe Vera: Known for its ability to soothe skin and boost hydration.
Peptides: Okay, if you’re yet to come across peptides, know that these little short chain amino acids are the building blocks for important things in your skin like collagen, keratin and elastin, which help to plump, firm and reduce the appearance of fine lines by stimulating collagen production.
Hollyhock Rose: Native to Asia and Europe, this plant has excellent hydrating properties.
Niacinamide: Also known as vitamin B3, niacinamide is a powerful antioxidant that protects the skin from environmental aggressors while strengthening the skin barrier and improving uneven skin tone. This water-soluble vitamin also helps to minimize the appearance of pores and brighten the skin while softening fine lines.
What’s the difference between hydration and moisturization?
Hydration refers to the water content within the skin, whereas moisturization refers to the skin’s ability to seal in moisture via a stronger skin barrier and naturally-occurring lipids. In Thirst Trap Juice Serum, the triple hyaluronic acid increases skin hydration by attracting and holding up to 1000 times its own weight in water. The peptides in the formula help reinforce the skin’s barrier with key proteins such as collagen and elastin, aiding with moisturization.
Will Thirst Trap Juice Serum help acne?
Thirst Trap Juice Serum is designed to offer deep hydration and help strengthen and firm the skin. Although this serum hasn’t been created to target acne, by deeply hydrating with hyaluronic acid and niacinamide, and strengthening the skin barrier with peptides, it will help with skin health and hydration, which may help to balance oil production and soothe skin.
Can I use Thirst Trap Juice Serum if I have sensitive skin?
Thirst Trap Juice Serum is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
