My rating: 10/10
How long I have used the product: 8 months
About the Brand
What a lovely brand with lovely products. They are a herb and flower based skincare line created with love for the earth, our bodies and the power of plants.
The integrity and purity of their ingredients takes precedence in their formulations. Rather than dissecting, diluting and altering, ingredients are unadulterated and pure to retain their healing power.
The #1 goal with all of their products is to slow aging using whole plant nourishment.
My First Impression
The smell and the color are what impress me first, the main scent I pick up is the Rosehip seed oil, which also gives the serum an orange color. I love that this serum contains sun protector oils such as Red Raspberry seed, Cranberry seed, and Jojoba.
Scent and Texture
A light scent, the strongest smell being the Rosehip seed oil. I can smell a hint of Rose and Jasmine. The aroma is like a lightly scented bouquet, mild and sweet, not overpowering.
The color is a deep rich orange. It is lovely.
A glass eyedropper makes application easy.
This is a facial oil, so it goes on different than a moisturizer, but it isn’t greasy and it absorbs well into my skin. There is no stickiness. I like to apply it to a moist face, it gives a lighter application and uses less product.

Who is this product for?
All skin types benefit from this serum, it is an excellent moisturizer packed full of anti-aging plant extracts.
This is an excellent serum, I love the ingredients, they are non-pore clogging and they all pack a super antioxidant punch.
I love that there is some natural sun protection included in this serum (though it is not recommended to replace your sunscreen.)
I have been using this serum for months and I am really liking it, I even like it better than my Amala treatment oil (plus it is cheaper). I love how soft and nourished my skin feels, and the bottle has lasted me a long time (though it is not the only oil I use).
I would recommend this serum to anyone. I think we can all benefit from topical application of antioxidants, at any age! It is better to start young, before you start noticing fine lines.
I am 33 and have some lines developing. I really just want my skin to be healthy – I don’t mind aging, it is natural, but if I can keep a youthful glow for longer, I will!
I recommend keeping your serum in the fridge, to keep it fresh and protect it from rancidity. Rosehip seed oil can go rancid fast.
- amazing ingredients
- dark glass packaging with a glass dropper
- absorbs well
- has a light scent
- contains natural SPF oils
- essential oils may irritate very sensitive skin, but most of us are not that sensitive and for those that are, there are serums without essential oils in them (such as Kypris‘ Prismatic Array Beauty Elixir).
10/10 BABY! This is my go-to serum right now, I am using it almost every day. The brand is exceptional, the ingredients are outstanding, you can’t get much better than this!
