Stone & Tumble Smoothing Serum

Wow, long time, no see! I have kind of a cool story to tell, but at times it's not cool... if that makes sense haha! I know it's been a while since I've blogged, but I'm hoping this will spark some fire in my gut, and I'll start again! Let's get rolling with the Stone & Tumble Smoothing Serum. I didn't know much about this company when they contacted me, but I figured it was worth a try, as my skin is so weird sometimes that I need help every once in a while...

The ingredients in this serum are labeled "clean beauty." While I'm not up on all the buzzwords for stuff, I'm assuming that means good things - I admit to not putting much stock in buzzwords. I can tell you that it's not gritty or slimy, and it feels super smooth on the skin.

  • Cardiospermum has been tested and shown to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Very effective against irritation, redness, and itchiness. Also prevents moisture loss and is well tolerated by even the most sensitive skin.
  • Echium Plantagineum is rich in fatty acids (linolenic and stearidonic) that make it a wonderful moisturizer. It helps repair the skin’s protective barrier, which improves hydration and reduces roughness.
  • Sweet Almond contains a blend of Vitamin A, E, Omega-3 fatty acids and Zinc. It is anti-inflammatory and helps with puffiness, evens out skin tone, helps dissolve excess oil, and improve cell turnover.
  • Sunflower Seed Oil is noncomedogenic and won't clog pores. Is effective for combatting skincare issues like acne, inflammation, general redness and irritations of the skin.

So I see the Sunflower Seed Oil combats inflammation and irritations - score one for me because of what I'm about to tell you......

I initially tested this serum for my pre-requisite two weeks. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It made my skin feel silky smooth, and I had zero issues. I have to be careful with what I put on my face because I have a contact allergy to Citric Acid (and we assumed only Citric Acid, but ya know). In the meantime, I got a second skin product to review, and I waited about a week before trying it.

Suffice to say even tho that second product didn't have Citric Acid, I had a bad reaction. Like over my whole face - see the photo below on the left. I'm very self conscious about showing this out here, but, ya know, it's something that needs done to prove something. I didn't think it was the product at first because there was no Citric Acid. I immediately stopped using the product and rested for about a week, using the Stone & Tumble Soothing Serum during that time. My skin calmed back down.

I started a second trial of the skin care product, thinking maybe it would be different, maybe there was an outside something or other that has affected my skin, not the product - it wasn't. I was right back where I been the week before, again stopping use and doubling down on the Stone & Tumble. Current me is on the right below - completely back to normal.

Now, this may seem like a ringing endorsement for Stone & Tumble Smoothing Serum, and it is. I've not had a product completely take care and/or clear up of one of my reaction in less than a week before. When I've had reactions this bad, it's not uncommon for me to go a month without relief. So would I recommend this product? Absolutely. Will I purchase it when my bottle runs out? Absolutely.
