Rated 4.5 out of 5
Based on 2 reviews


Description +

Essential Oil Free


A robust and luxurious oil serum highlighted with a cornucopia of vibrant berries, calendula, carrot, and dates. Elevated by a vitamin C ester and a vegan ceramide complex using pomegranate sterols. Collectively the formula supports collagen production and common skin concerns around fine-lines, scarring, and discoloration.

Suitable for sensitive, acne-prone and mature skin types.


Squalane, a non-comedogenic emollient acts as protective barrier to hydrate the skin, softening the appearances fine lines. It absorbs quickly to provide a velvety finish. Live Botanical's luxe version is extracted via Co2 from sustainable amaranthus grain, which is one of the highest and most abundant sources of plant-based squalane.

Ceramides plus pomegranate sterols (cholesterol) create a unique complex (3:1:1:1) along with essential & non-essential fatty acids that mirrors our natural skin to help improve the lipid barrier matrix for enhanced protection from water loss and in turn encourages long term vitality.

+ Date extract has shown great promise in various studies to improve skin elasticity, increase brightness, greater hydration, and a decrease in redness and hyperpigmentation.

+ Cranberry seed oil is one of the most abundant sources of polyphenols such as tocopherols and tocotrienols (Vitamin E) which improve firmness and elasticity. It has the perfect ratio of omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9 fatty acids meaning it’s better at absorption to deliver all its skin-loving properties.

Raspberry seed is rich in carotenoids and vitamin E. The antioxidant profile is especially effective at supporting concerns around UV damage and calming reactive, sun parched and inflamed conditions.

Rice bran oil is a natural source of ceramides, peptides, ferulic acid, CoQ10, vitamins A and B, in addition to a range of antioxidants such as tocopherol, tocotrienol, and oryzanol. Together they repair lipid barrier damage and protect the skin from free radicals.

Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (10%), a stable form of vitamin C that is suitable for sensitive skin. Coupled with whole plant-based vitamin E and ferulic acid in the overall formula, the bioavailability is measurably increased to improve clarifying and protective benefits.

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


Add a thin layer all over with attention to fine lines and dark marks. Gently massage and press to assist absorption. For best results apply day and night after cleansing, toning, water-based serums and moisturizer. For dry skin, follow up with a facial balm.

It can be used to boost your existing moisturizer, as an eye serum or spot treatment for discoloration.

Allow 9-16 weeks with continued use to see effects, according to clinical testing.

Lovely gentle serum

This is my first time using Live Botanicals and I am very impressed with the gentle pure mindful formulations, the availability of travel sizes and the personal customer service. I bought several different travel size items to try, all of which I like, but I'm not sure I've found the perfect product combination yet. Anyway, this brightening serum is hydrating and gently brightening, leaving a dewy finish. At first I was not super impressed with this product because it is virtually scentless ( I prefer a little bit of an herbal scent like can be found in some of the other LB products...I'm talking to you Whipped Balancing Balm!). Also, I didn't feel like it gave me an instantly noticeably brighter complexion compared to some stronger brightening products I have used. However, I'm realizing that with ultra pure product lines like Live Botanical, it seems that the products really penetrate the skin and improve it more gradually over time with continued use. Meaning, the more I use the LB products, the more I see a difference and the more I like them. This is indeed a very nice serum, but right now I'm unsure if I'll repurchase or not. My favorite product I've tried from LB so far is the Ambient Moisture Liquid...check it out if you haven't!
