So as promised, I am going to try to get to more items in the health and beauty of of Trader Joe’s. Now, Trader Joe’s Antioxidant Facial Serum isn’t a new item by any stretch of the imagination. But with the nondescript packaging, maybe you’ve walked past it a few too many times.
So it is summer here in NYC. We have more or less had our first heat wave. Let me be clear, this probably would not be my go to item this time of year.
But that isn’t a bad thing.
Because this might be my go to item come Fall and Winter.
Unlike some serums, this one is thick. The pump doles out a tiny amount of product and with good reason. If over applied, your face will feel quite greasy, so a pump or maybe two is all you’ll need.
But this made my face feel the way a good primer does: even and smooth. This seems to work well under makeup.
There is a super faint aroma of grapefruit with this, but I had to put some on my hand and sniff a few times to figure that out. All the other elements here seem to not leave behind any smell what so ever.
Now, for some they might look at the ingredient list and say, “Dimethicone?! No way.” According to the FDA, Dimethicone is considered a skin protectant and it seems to form a pretty solid protective barrier between the air and my face.
But as always, the choice is always yours.
Which brings me back to where I started, if it is hot, humid, where you are, this might not be the serum to reach for. There are better ones for those types of conditions.
However, if you need a protective layer that seems both moisturizing and will leave your skin with a smooth surface, then Trader Joe’s Antioxidant Facial Serum is a good one to pick up.
As for the antioxidants, I doubt I’ll suddenly look 10 years younger. But under makeup, this can hide some fine lines.
For $9.99 there are few other serums at this price point that seem this nice.

- Worthy of Repurchasing
- Nice smelling and nice feeling serum, but may be best suited for cooler/less humid times of year
- Light grapefruit smell was nice too
- Packaging makes this look fancy
- Dimethicone does keep everything in, both good and bad.
- The box this comes in could be nicer as it is almost camouflage colors to blend in so you don’t notice it.
