"For all skin types. Developed using the latest cutting edge research, the Antioxidant Face Gel and Antioxidant Face Firming Serum make a powerful duo that together lift, tone, repair and regenerate the skin. The serum is nicknamed by our clients as 'the instant face lift oil'. The power of Rose Hip, Grapeseed, Alphalipoic acid, DMAE, Carrot and Grapefruit make this oil 50 times stronger than Rose Hip alone. Reverse sun damage, lift and tone the skin, reduce wrinkles, mop up free radicals."
A powerful anti-ageing serum that has been nicknamed ‘the instant face lift’. It reduces wrinkles, mops up free radicals, reverses skin damage, lifts and tones the skin.
First, it must be said that this beautiful oil has the intoxicating scent of Sweet Orange- therefore upon application you are assured of a magnificent and visceral sensory experience. This brilliant concoction boasts a high concentration of the powerful Alpha Lipoic Acid, a known powerful antioxidant, that helps to prevent cell damage by scavenging free-radicals. The high concentration of Rose Hip Oil is rich in transretinoic acid and essential fatty acids, and is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and also helps to reduce scarring over time. Sweet Orange helps prevent capillary fragility, and Carrots are rich in Beta Carotene (part of the Vitamin A family), and are rich antioxidants that protects the skin against free-radicals. Lemon (Citrus Limonum) lifts, tones and exfoliates the skin, and does so in an immediately visible way. This is also to say nothing of the fact that my skin is left soft, supple, and deeply moisturized and hydrated.
This combination of ingredients, along with those that I didn't enumerate, create a powerful cocktail that has visibly changed the texture and clarity of my skin. There is a notable lifting effect in that my expression lines are radically softened, and my skin has an unprecedented radiance and clarity. I would describe this oil as one that stimulates circulation because my skin has the type of radiance that is not superficial, but one instead that causes my skin to have a rosy radiance as though lit from within. The difference is so noticeable, that whenever I use it people comment on how gorgeous, glowing and beautiful my skin is. In fact, I recently had an aesthetician tell me that I had really great skin that was just gorgeous and glowing. I attribute a good deal of this to this magic potion, of course it is not solely responsible for the current condition of my skin- but I am currently under an inordinate amount of stress, and often when stressed my skin goes haywire. Instead, my skin looks and feels wonderful.
I am not saying that I don't still covet Olio Lusso or Ladi Avokanto- both are amazing moisturizers, but neither offers the same level of anti-aging benefits. I will continue to repurchase all three because they deeply resonate with the needs of my skin while comporting to my personal skincare tastes and proclivities.
Suggested usage: "Mix 2 drops of serum with Organic Pharmacy moisturizer and apply every morning to slightly damp skin. At night mix 4 drops of gel with 2 drops of serum and apply to damp skin after cleansing. No night cream is necessary."
I tend not to mix the serum with my moisturizer, but instead prefer to massage it directly into my skin all by itself. It is a truly divine experience! It should be noted that it is very concentrated and potent- it really only takes two drops to do the trick. I tend to warm it up in my hands first and then massage it into my face afterward.

Overall assessment: A real game changer for me. I'm still shocked that such an unassuming little golden elixir can render such outstanding and transformative results. It was worth every single penny to me, and I will most definitely repurchase this magical potion. This is the stuff that dreams are made of! A+
