That is our cast of ingredients - and while it sounds like a lot... many of these are lipids which basically means they're fatty acids that help to make our skin softer and more healthy.
The actual product is unscented and thin. We love that it doesn't make our skin feel "covered up" and is easily soaked up. It's one of very few serums we've tried that isn't clear, which we think is a bit interesting.
A little bit goes a long way. You can use just a pea sized amount and cover your entire face and neck. The instructions are simple - apply to face morning and night after cleansing, toning and exfoliating. Layer with your other serums for enhanced results. And because it contains no SPF always follow with sunscreen in the daytime!
So we are kind of in love with this product... first time in a while we really went all in on a product!
There's no residue and it's so lightweight it's barely there - if you are looking for a new moisturizing and anti aging serum or are just starting to add anti aging to your skincare regimen this is definitely a product to try!
