I have been a bit apprehensive about writing this review. I wanted to make sure I gave the product a fair trial before giving my full opinion. I've now been using it for two weeks which is not as long as I would have hoped but I've decided that this product isn't for me.
For those who haven't heard of this company, My Codage is a french based skincare line. They sell a set line of serums, creams and cleansers. However, what makes this brand a little different is that they also do personalised skincare too. Once you have taken a questionnaire in myLab, My Codage will concoct a few products that they believe will most suit your skin type. This is what I have done. After much deliberation I went for the face serum. Their products can be awfully pricey for what you actually get. However I got a discount code in my Joliebox that made it slightly more achievable. You also get points when you register and each time you purchase, which you can then go back and spend on different items.
When you order a personalised product, My Codage also personalises your bottle and the box which I think is a really nice touch. They use your initials on both which makes the product a little bit more special and unique.
After I had completed the questionnaire, my concoction was revealed:
Ao2 | Dx1 | Re3 | Ac2
Yeah, I was confused as well. But this basically means that the 4 categories I needed from my serum were:
Antioxidant - Medium Dosage
Detoxifier - Minimum Dosage
Skin Repair - Maximum Dosage
Anti-imperfections - Medium Dosage
These are the properties that created my perfect skincare. Or so I presumed was perfect.
The delivery was really quick and I was very impressed with the customer service. I got a note from the person who made my serum, explaining that I could get in touch with them personally at any point if I had any questions. These were all factors which made me love the experience even more.
However after I started using the product on a daily basis I wasn't liking the results. As you know, I have only been using the product for two weeks. However my skin feels and looks like it's in a worse condition now then when I started. My pores look bigger, my skin looks oilier for the first time since my teen years. Overall this product doesn't seem to be achieving what I wanted it to - to resolve all my skin issues.
I think I will be getting in contact with the person that made my serum to ask them a few questions about the product. Overall the service was great but I am not reaping the rewards that I thought I would be. I am disappointed and considering the price I doubt that I will purchase from them again.
Having said this, skincare is very hit and miss. What doesn't work for me may perhaps be a holy grail product for another.
