Resiliency Face Serum

Firming, anti-acne, and lightening gel serum

Our Carrot-a-Day Face Serum, Classic, now bears the name Resiliency Face Serum. Customer reviews of the Carrot-a-Day Serum, Classic, can be found here.

The Story

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 scar.


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.

I've been blown away by Resiliency. I marvel at the immediate results, how it makes my skin feel so hydrated and so plump and radiant. Slightly de-puffing, it is the perfect addition to my morning routine and and utterly comforting at night before layering on my heavier potions. It has magically transformed my skin over time. Indeed this beautiful concoction does make my skin more . . . well . . . resilient. My wish is to procure everyone I know an unlimited supply of this gorgeous serum so that you may all experience the magic of this Resiliency. I would love for this to be part of my skincare repertoire forever.

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.

Full size 30 ml (1 fl oz); travel/sample size 6 ml (0.2 fl oz).

Due to the very high cost of our ingredients and the labor-intensive (highly time consuming) small-batch production process, we are unable to accept returns of opened or unopened products at this time. But most products have a sample size option for purchase, so we encourage you to buy a sample first to ensure that the product suits your skin's needs and that you enjoy the texture, fragrance, and healing properties.

This is the best serum I've ever used

I am so glad I found resiliency face serum. I have tried SO many serums and nothing compares to this one. My skin soaks it up and looks and feels rejuvenated immediately. I follow with either magical babasu or ferns and moss...then finish with a moisturizer. I am purchasing this serum over and over again. It's really that good!

Really nice product.

I ordered a sample to try because I have sensitive skin. I had nothing to worry about, my skin reacted very well with Resiliency Face Serum. I love the gel formula. My skin is on the drier side so for me I need more moisture. As long as I layered Ambrosia and either Ferns and Moss or one of the other oils (I bought samples of all the oils to try) I was good to go.

One of my holy grail products

I was first introduced to Resiliency serum by Boxwalla but have since repurchased it on my own several times now. There's something that is just so intoxicating about Earthwise beauty products - from the freshness, the smell, the texture ... I love the immediate tightness/firming that I feel when I apply this serum which sinks in immediately. I even love the smell! I'm hoping with continued use that it will lighten some hyperpigmentation but overall, it really just helps to keep my skin feeling so happy and healthy. I will never be without this product!

Love this serum!

I had been looking at ordering this serum, based on the reviews, for several months. I ordered my first jar in April and just ordered my second jar. This product has totally cleared up my hormonal acne, my pores are smaller, my face isn't as oily, and it's also lightened some hyperpigmentation. I will NOT be without this serum ever again! Thank you, Ava!!

Resiliency face serum

I have been using this product for about 4 years and I absolutely love it. I added the new product black locust firming concentrate to my daily routine and it is amazing how my skin responded.
Thank you Ava for your new products and keeping the resiliency face serum.
