INTENTION

An oil-free, multi-layered serum to hydrate, calm and gently exfoliate.

A base of soothing, emollient-rich herbs of wild pansy, marshmallow, and aloe soften and smooth the skin. Working to improve hydration and retain water.

Effective yet sensitive skin-friendly plant-based lactic acid (vegan) not only exfoliates but improves the skin's natural moisturizing factor, leveraging the other hydrating herbs to refresh the skin.

BOTANICAL PROFILE:

+ A blend of both willow bark and meadowsweet. Using two different extraction methods to obtain the whole plant anti-inflammatory compounds plus a version to obtain salicylic acid which penetrates into the sebaceous glands to deeply clean pores to lessen congestion and clear the skin.  The particular formula blend ensures it supports both oily and dry skin.

+ Sea fennel, orange flower, and a unique peptide calm redness and improve overall tone for a clear complexion.

+ Superfoods of green tea and pomegranate impart a range of skin-loving antioxidants to protect the skin from environmental damage, while also containing regenerative compounds to firm the skin.

+ Moth bean extract has been shown to be 50x more effective than retinyl palmitate. Acting as a gentle plant-based retinol alternative.

+ No additional essential oils have been added so the scent is very mild and suitable for most skin types from oily to dry, including sensitive.

Size: Full Size 30 ml or Travel Size 5 ml (Travel Size packaged in Live Botanical box and amber glass branded packaging.)

Application+

  • Apply 1-2 pumps on clean damp skin. Follow with your favorite facial oil or moisturizer. You may notice a slight film for about 30 seconds as it absorbs. You can blend your oil/moisturizer with the serum as a micro-emulsion or it can be layered while it is absorbing.
  • As a spot or zone treatment, apply a thick layer and let dry (5-10 minutes).  Then very lightly take a damp cloth and remove any film.
  • It can be applied 3 times a week for sensitive skin and up to twice a day for more exfoliation.  For maintenance, 3-5 times a week is advised.
  • Sunburn Alert: Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) may cause sensitivity to UV light. Apply sunscreen while in use and for 1 week after discontinued use.

Exfoliating serum

This is a gentle exfoliating serum. I mix this with a facial oil then apply to my face. I notice after a week or two of using this product my face looks smoother and brighter.

I use this on a 12-year old and her skin has responded well, it's gentle but definitely working over a week!

Ok

I was hoping for better result but it doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin. Perhaps I need to give it more time for better results.

Lovely gentle serum

This is a very nice gentle exfoliating serum! If I use it straight, it can be drying, but I have enjoyed combining it with other oils. The Live Botanical site suggests blending it with the Overnight Resurfacing Oil, which I love, so I need to try that.
