So here is my review of Givenchy’s Vaxin

Top 10 ingredients
Ethylene/acrylic acid copolymer
Somewhat lower on the list I see oat kernel extract, panax notoginseng root extract, cotton extract, soy flour, yeast extract, evening primrose root extract… some interesting extract I must say!
Apparently Givenchy is using a special technology Hormesis - defined as "favorable biological responses to low exposures to toxins and other stressors". Certain ingredients of Vax'in are used to produce a hormetic effect on the cells and to stimulate skin cells from inside to behave as young cells.

Texture: white, creamy, light
Smell: strong perfume smell
The first thing that gets my attention is the beautiful silky texture. The serum immediately gets absorbed into the skin and leaves the feeling of softness and comfort. In fact immediately the skin gets kind of a glow as if you just had a facial. My skin reacted very positively and in a week of daily use for the night, it looked healthier, smoother and suppler. You do have to apply a moisturizing cream after the Vaxim Serum.
I was using this product in June and found it was a good kick for the skin at the change of seasons.
