Review of MANUKA DOCTOR Apinourish Age-Defying Serum

Posted on December 3, 2013


Over the past few weeks, we had a chance to continue reviewing the MANUKA DOCTOR skin care range. We were big fans of their marvelous ApiNourish Rejuvenating Face Mask and continued with an in-depth look into their ApiNourish Age-Defying Serum — a high performance serum developed to rejuvenate the skin and help reveal a youthful looking complexion.

The ApiNourish Age-Defying Serum uses this natural key ingredient as well as Manuka Honey, a New Zealand native honey known for its skin care benefits. Other key ingredients used are ones found also in their Face Mask (Royal Jelly, Rosehip Seed Oil, Blackcurrant Seed Oil) as well as Propolis Extract (used for wound cleansing and treatment of minor burns — obtained from beehives) Olive Oil, Vitamin E, and Hyaluronic Acid. Contains no parabens or Sodium Lauryl Sulfate.

The anti-aging face serum is packaged in a clean sturdy translucent pump bottle. Dispensing the product was very easy and precise. The serum scent is very womanly — a mix of florals and fruits (fragrance is added to this product). But our men didn’t mind it after realizing the wonderful skincare benefits this product packs.

Not only did our complexions become more radiant and smoother after 3 weeks of use, our faces felt softer and younger looking. Most expensive face serums are all marketing buzz and full of hot air, but the Manuka Doctor serum works as promised. It applies on smooth without any oiliness or slickness and is absorbed quickly into the skin leaving a matte-finish behind. Priced at only $41 for 30 ml, its a must-try skincare product for both men and women. We are not surprised that the ApiNourish Age-Defying Serum was a product winner at the 2012 Beauty Insiders’ Choice Awards. It ranks up there in the best face serums for the buck category. As a result of our favorable experiences with Manuka Doctor products, we are now adding the line to our best luxury women’s skin care lines top picks.
