Resiliency Face Serum

$70

This is our ultimate take (well, ultimate for now) on an anti-aging serum with incredible youth-returning powers in an ultra-light, fresh, aloe-gel format. This formula is one of our bestselling products of all time (its previous name was Carrot-a-Day Face and Eye Serum, Classic). Customers often write to tell us how much they love this serum for its ability to fix nearly everything, from immediate smoothing, firming, depuffing, and brightening to its long-term effects, such as decreasing skin discolorations and scars. 

The Ritual

Apply generously onto freshly washed face. Most skin types will benefit from following immediately with an emollient moisturizer, facial oil or balm. (For sensitive skin types, though, we recommend applying aloe serums like this one over an oil or emollient moisturizer.) Ideally REFRIGERATE to protect freshness and enhance the cooling, refreshing, and depuffing properties.

The Results

This formula is incredibly light, yet powerfully effective, with a wealth of healing properties. The rejuvenating serum has strong anti-aging and sun-damage-preventing properties, and works to return a youthful appearance to the skin. Resiliency removes puffiness, heals and reduces acne, reduces fine wrinkles, and lifts and firms the skin for an instantly pulled-together appearance. It can also be used as an eye serum by those who can tolerate more active ingredients on their under-eye skin: it instantly firms and depuffs the under-eye area, and because the light formula absorbs quickly, it works well under makeup.

The main active ingredient here is carrot seed essential oil, one of the most effective yet very gentle skin-tissue-regenerating ingredients, which also contains natural sun-blocking and sun-damage-preventing and -correcting properties.

We have added anti-inflammatory German blue chamomile to reduce any possible skin irritation and redness, as well as helichrysum (Italian everlasting) from Bosnia. (We are no longer using Corsican helichrysum due to concerns about overharvesting in the region.) Helichrysum is one of the top essential oils for scar and other spot reduction and for wrinkle reversal, and is also used in wound and burn healing by medical aromatherapists. 

The high content of top-quality, truly minimally processed aloe (found after months of search and testing) plus a touch of spearmint offer a slightly cooling and definitely de-puffing quality. 

Incidentally, due to the high content of betacarotene-rich carrot seed oil and lack of any possibly comedogenic ingredients, this gel has been of great help to anyone with acne tendencies. We have even had reports of this serum removing skin tags, and it may help reduce skin discoloration and dark spots as well.  

The gentle preservative used in this formula is ECOCERT approved for use in certified organic cosmetics. 

The Experience

Resiliency has a bouncy, aloe texture and has an almost citrusy tequila scent. It absorbs easily and feels cooling and sometimes active on the skin.

Skin Types

For all skin types, especially mature, wrinkled, acne-prone, combination, and lacking firmness. Patch test first if your skin is sensitive.
