Put to the test: the Unconditional Skincare Co. Live Probiotic Hydration Serum

1 September 2021

The Fashion Quarterly team put the Unconditional Skincare Co. Live Probiotic Hydration Serum to the test. Here’s what they said after three weeks of use.

PRODUCED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH UNCONDITIONAL SKINCARE CO.
The Unconditional Skincare Co. Live Probiotic Hydration Serum, $95

Unconditional Skincare Co. is a New Zealand brand with a unique approach to skincare. Focusing on a single product formulated by scientists, the Unconditional Skincare Co. Live Probiotic Hydration Serum is enriched with a hero patented ingredient, the live probiotic ‘BLIS Q24®’. This hero probiotic works to restore and balance your skin’s microbiome, or the ecosystem of bacteria present on the skin’s surface. 

While many skin products claim probiotic properties, often these products contain lysates, or dead bacteria. As helpful as this is to benefit the skin, the difference with the Live Probiotic Hydration Serum is that the live probiotic colonises the skin, growing in numbers to crowd out the bad bacteria. 

Standing firmly behind the healing powers of live probiotics, Unconditional Skincare Co. says there is no such thing as ‘good’ or ‘bad’ skin. All skin has the potential to be at its healthy and glowy best once the microbiome is restored. 

If you’re experiencing dryness, acne, rosacea, or eczema, the Live Probiotic Hydration Serum may just be the solution you require to hydrate, reduce inflammation, and calm your microbiome. 

To see the results for themselves, the Fashion Quarterly team put the Unconditional Skincare Co. Live Probiotic Hydration Serum to the test. Here’s what they said after three weeks of use: 

My skin has been on a roller coaster ride the past month. It experienced a painful skin purge around the t-zone after a facial, a stress-induced breakout from yet another lockdown, and my complexion became severely dry and dull after a few too many late nights. I was therefore nervous about trialling a new product, but as it turned out, swapping my regular moisturiser for the Unconditional Skincare Co. Live Probiotic Hydration Serum and using it as the last step of my skincare routine (as the instructions say) was the best thing I could do. 

A constant amid the chaos, the most noticeable change while using the Live Probiotic Hydration Serum was the rapid rate at which my persistent acne would vanish after forming. After a couple of weeks, the usual redness in my cheeks had reduced, and my skin felt soothed and adequately hydrated—an impressive feat given that we were in the middle of winter. And as my acne continues to pop up, the spots are smaller, less painful, and quickly disappear, which is a huge relief. 

I now understand the importance of restoring and bringing balance to my skin’s microbiome, so I’ll be continuing to use the Unconditional Skincare Co. Live Probiotic Hydration Serum to ensure my skin can thrive. It’s as easy as applying two pumps to your face and neck as the last step of your skincare routine, morning and night. 

My advice to you—use the Live Probiotic Hydration Serum for at least 30 days to allow your skin to adjust and reap the full benefits of the live probiotic strain. 

I’m constantly seeking out products to assist in taming a red, dry, and flaky rash on my face which has stuck with me during my pregnancy, and post-partum. The pesky rash has been challenging to manage, especially with my combination skin which severely lacks hydration during winter. 

I’ve never used a probiotic serum on my skin, so I was intrigued by the Unconditional Skincare Co. Live Probiotic Hydration Serum. I’ve been using it morning and night for over three weeks now, and it’s helped to create an even skin tone and texture, as well as leaving my skin feeling hydrated and smooth. 

Now an essential step in my daily skincare routine, the Live Probiotic Hydration Serum has thankfully helped me with my winter skin woes!

I have tried many brands promising intense skin hydration. However, the results are not always convincing. In a bid to bring balance to my skin’s microbiome I have used Unconditional Skincare Co. Live Probiotic Hydration Serum for the past three weeks after cleansing my face. 

 Within a few days of using the serum, my skin felt hydrated and taut. After a week of use, my skin was glowy, and three weeks later, it felt significantly softer. 

The Live Probiotic Hydration Serum is the ultimate answer to dehydrated and sallow skin. I’m enjoying seeing my skin in a new light. 

For the past three weeks I have used the Unconditional Skincare Co. Live Probiotic Hydration Serum in the morning after cleansing and toning, and before applying my SPF and makeup. I also use it in the evening. 

After three days of applying the Live Probiotic Hydration Serum, I could already see and feel the difference in my skin. My skin looked healthier, and its texture was smoother. 

Although my skin is drier in winter, after three weeks of use, my face is better hydrated and has a noticeable glow which makes me happy. 

I would definitely recommend the Unconditional Skincare Co. Live Probiotic Hydration Serum. Not only is it so easy to add into your current beauty regimen, but the results speak for themselves.
