Invite your skin to AWAKEN to its natural GLOW
Melt a tiny amount, smaller than a pea, into clean, fresh, fully wet & toned skin - letting the potion careess every contour to full absorption
Our "SERUM" concentrate has zero water content, however it is designed to "mimic" a lotion or cream. The importance of FULLY WET / toned skin is a necessary step, as this is the 'water' that emulsifies the oils and waxes in the concentrate, helping it absorb nicely and create the perfect protective moisture barrier. Once absorbed - go ahead and apply an extra misting to lock in all that glorious moisture!
for Extended 'Treatment':
At night, melt a pea sized dollop into freshly cleaned skin, spritz with a toner/mist to lock in moisture and find sweet dreams.
You can also use this super concentrate at full strength on scrapes, cuts, bruises, sunburns or patchy dry skin spots to help accelerate healing. Simply use clean hands and apply to the area. Repeat as necessary.
