Product Information

According to the brand, this serum is “a creamy, nourishing serum that calms signs of sensitivity caused by a broken skin barrier. A blend of nourishing oils and rebalancing actives restore damaged skin to clear breakouts and soothe irritation. Skin looks clear, feels calm, and probably sounds amazing”.

For 28$, this serum contains 45ml and comes in a 100% recyclable packaging.

This product is available on and is vegan and cruelty-free! The brand also encourages skin minimalism and has a great sustainability program!

Why I love it?

The main reason my skin fell in love with this product is because it contains a wonderful blend of ingredients that moisturizes, repairs, plumps and brightens the skin. First, this product contains numerous anti-aging and brightening ingredients. But it also contains ingredients that promotes wound healing, such as Safflower seed oil and Sodium Hyaluronate. Second, it contains Niacinamide and Ceramides which are perfect to repair a skin barrier. Moreover, it has powerful moisturizing agents like Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Sodium Hyaluronate, Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Flour (great for skin elasticity too).

It’s a wonderful serum to repair a damaged skin but also to sustain your skin’s health, to brighten dark spots, give you a plumped and healthy glow and heal acne. Now, compared to most serums i’ve every used, this one is heavier and richer. It has this creamy consistency which is very calming and soothing to the skin. If you have a more oily or combination skin type then opting for a lighter moisturizer afterward is optimal.

I love that you could utilize this serum for different purposes and not just to repair your skin if it’s experiencing redness and sensitivity. You can add it to your routine as a way for your skin to recover from all of the actives you use such as exfoliants or retinoids.
