Stila One Step Correct Skin Tone Correcting Brightening Serum

One of the products in the Limited Edition Bespoke Selfridges Beauty Box was the Stila One Step Correct (you can read my review of the Selfridges beauty box here!) It was one of the products I most wanted in the box. I'd seen it a lot at the time and I guess like anyone, I was really captivated by design and look of the product. It's like nothing I've ever seen before. It's definitely entrancing! So what does this almost Alice-in-Wonderland type product do exactly?


This innovative, triple-swirled helix serum 'instantly' colour-corrects, brightens and covers skin imperfections for a flawless face with no fuss! "Swirl your way to perfect skin in one step!" It is a primer, colour-correcter, brightener and anti-aging skincare serum all in one! And it's all down to Stila's Youth Revival Bio-Available Mineral Complex! But what on earth is that? Well, the green tone instantly neurtalises redness and conceals blemishes, the lavender tone counteracts sallow undertones for a vibrant, energised look and the peach tone brightens, illuminates and helps diminish the appearance of sun spots! Quite a lot of promises for a product which costs £24 for 30ml. Well with that price tag, you'd expect it to do a lot, too! It also boasts that it's weightless creamy formula blends imperceptibly into the skin and won't clog pores or settle into fine leaves, so all anyone will notice is your perfectly flawless skin! 

So does it really do all of that? Well.... I don't know. I honestly can't give a straight answer and I've been using this for a couple of months now. Sometimes, I see each shade doing it's business. Sometimes. I don't notice any of them doing a darn thing. Maybe it has its lazy days? We're all entitled to them. But for me, if I had bought this straight out for £24, I'd expect it to do everything it claims, everyday. And it doesn't. I like it, but I don't love it. I don't think it's worth the £24 price tag and I definitely wouldn't repurchase it. No matter how pretty it looks.

  1. Wow, that's quite a hefty price for something like this. I'd expect it to work at least what it claims to do :)

    1. I do think it is quite a big price tag for a product which doesn't do what it should every time! xo

  2. Wow, that's really expensive for this! I had a sample once & it's okay, but I don't love it either.

    1. If it did what it was supposed to do every day, I'd probably love it. But it doesn't! xo

    1. Thank you! I have learnt a lesson though, just because something looks pretty doesn't mean it's a good product xo

  4. I got this as well, and I know what you mean about it having lazy days! Sometimes I feel like it's working, and it feels soothing on the skin and my pores appear refined (an achievement for my skin), and then other days where I feel like it just sits there, doing nothing. Great review :)

  5. I've always wanted to try this (and had been thinking about splashing out on it), but I might save my pennies for something else now! Does sound very expensive for something that doesn't do a great deal xx

    1. Personally, I'd definitely recommend saving your pennies. It is not worth the price tag at all! xo

    1. Me too! I had high expectations of it, mainly as it's from Stila! I feel quite let down with it unfortunately xo

  8. I wanted to try this so I'm glad I've seen someone give an honest review. I also love how you try a product for a couple of months before reviewing, because that's when you can really tell about the product :) xxx

    1. There's some products, such as primers, skincare, hair care, which I think you really need to fully try out before coming to a decision on!! xo
