Formerly named “Retinoid + Hyaluronic Acid Facial Serum”
It's never too early to add retinoids to your skincare ritual. Indulge thirsty skin with luxurious ingredients that leave your face feeling supple and nourished. This facial potion will tone skin, tackle wrinkles, and hydrate your skin, fortified with vitamin A (retinoid) and hyaluronic acid.
This serum is brimming with skin goodies like vitamins B3 and B5, extracts of green tea, helichrysum, and lotus flower, and gentle rose geranium and white sage botanical waters. The chosen extracts have been know to offer anti-aging, restorative, and soothing properties.
Vitamin A comes in a variety of forms and potency. It is often used in anti-aging products, but can also help alleviate acne prone skin. This serum is formulated with the less irritating retinyl palmitate, the gentlest form of vitamin A, making it great for those with sensitive skin or new to retinoids. Retinoids work by stimulating collagen production and skin cell turnover, leading to more youthful, even skin texture and tone, as it speeds up exfoliation, brightens scars and dark spots, smooths fine lines and wrinkles, and destroys acne. With its potent rejuvenating properties, it can improve the appearance of aged and blemished skin over time.
As we age, our skin loses its own hyaluronic acid (HA) and ability to retain moisture. Adding this to your skincare routine will increase your skin's moisture level and smooth down age lines. HA works by drawing in and holding onto moisture. Able to hold a thousand times its weight in water, HA makes an incredibly good moisturizer for your skin when applied topically, as it essentially turns your skin into a heavily saturated sponge. The more moisture your skin holds, the plumper it appears and fine lines less visible.
Your serum will arrive in an amber bottle with dropper to allow for easy dispensing and control.

How to Use
Hyaluronic acid works by drawing in moisture from its environment. For best results, apply 1-2 drops to damp, cleansed skin. If you have never used a retinoid before, start by introducing this to your routine weekly, and slowly work up to every other day. Follow up with one of a facial oil elixir and moisturizer to seal in serum for best results (especially crucial if you live in a dry environment). Or, create a skin martini and mix 1-2 drops to your oil or moisturizer, then apply to skin.
Do not touch dropper directly to hands or face to avoid contamination of your serum and prolong shelf life. Do not use on broken skin. External use only. Store in cool, dark area.
As with all new products, please test on a small patch of skin for any sensitivity or allergies to any of the ingredients.
As retinoids have been known to increase photosensitivity, it is recommended to add this to your evening beauty routine and ensure sunscreen is part of your daily morning regimen.
