Massage a few drops of this rose-alicious oil into the skin after cleansing and toning.

If you prefer, you can also blend the serum with one of our toners in your palm to create an emulsion, and then massage the emulsion into the skin. This serum works as both a serum and moisturizer so there is no need to follow with a moisturizer.
Rosehip oil // This unique oil is extremely high in essential fatty acids such as Omega 3, 6 and 9 which provide regenerative properties, as well as trans-retinoic acid (a cousin of vitamin A) which helps prevent premature aging. This oil absorbs into the skin quickly and is excellent for dry skin. It is known to help fade scars, help repair damaged tissue, increase cell turnover, and for its regenerative properties.

CoQ10 // A naturally occurring substance that is present in human cells. It protects the cell and is a component of our body's production of energy. As we age, our body produces less CoQ10 which in turn decreases collagen production and the skin's ability to regenerate itself. Studies have shown that topically applied CoQ10 may have an effect on the appearance of wrinkles, reduce UV damage, stimulate collagen production, and help prevent skin damage. CoQ10 benefits also include antioxidants and anti-inflammatory effects. Our CoQ10 is vegan and non-GMO.

Rose absolute // 60 000 roses must be harvested and distilled to create 1 fl oz of rose essential oil. Rose is a mild astringent, antibacterial, a skin tonic, humectant, and has anti-aging and regenerative properties. The aroma is soothing to the heart and encourages feelings of self-love.

Pomegranate oil // Useful for cell regeneration, anti-aging, and deep nourishment. Pomegranate oil is high in flavonoids, antioxidants, and unique components such as ellagic acid which helps prevent UV damage and puninic acid (omega-5) which helps reduce skin inflammation and prevents moisture loss. Pomegranate oil has the ability to deeply penetrate the skin to nourish, fight free radicals that cause aging and may also help improve the skin's texture.

Carrot seed oil // This oil is cold pressed from the seed of the plant commonly known as "Queen Ann's Lace". This oil is known for its skin healing abilities and rejuvenating effects. There are studies that show that a main component, carotol, may help regenerate the skin.

Jojoba Oil Infusion // Jojoba oil is naturally high in vitamin E and is chemically close to our skin's sebum. We infuse this oil with skin healing flowers such as chamomile and calendula to create a deeply nourishing oil that soothes and promotes regeneration.

Oil, not a serum

I felt a little mislead by the title of the product since a serum is usually more of the texture of a thinner gel that soaks in quickly. This is straight-up an oil. As such, I wouldn't recommend using it under makeup, as it leaves the skin way too shiny.

Overall it's not a bad product, and it smells very nice. However, I wanted it as a replacement for a night cream, but didn't find it moisturizing enough for that purpose. It works well with another cream on top, but then again, my skin didn't feel that different with this serum and cream vs cream alone.

If you're looking for a facial oil, this is great. If you have anything else in mind, then maybe it's not your product.

Hi Linda! This in indeed an oil serum and can be used like a facial oil. If you feel like this oil is too heavy for your skin, we recommend trying our Herbal Balancing Serum or Simple Facial Oil instead. One trick we recommend to take full advantage of the benefits of a facial oil and which will help the oil sink in faster so that you can apply makeup after application, is to use a toning mist like our Rose or Neroli Toners prior to applying the oil. Lastly, if this oil was not moisturizing enough for your skin, we highly recommend you try our Night Regenerative Balm.

So far I love it!

I've been using the Rose Nuturing Serum with rosehip CoQ10 for about a month now-it has calmed my face down so much. I have issues with hormonal skin, and this has helped deal with the environmental issues I have as well-extremely dry skin which causes over production of oils etc. I do find it a little greasy-but it could also be my skin still getting used to using pure oils. I find how it makes my skin feel is worth the little bit of shine I have to deal with!
