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 and brown-spot-reducing 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. 


This formula is incredibly light, yet powerfully effective, with a wealth of healing properties. The rejuvenating serum has strong anti-aging, brown-spot-reducing, 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 also had reports of this serum removing skin tags.  

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


I had already tested and loved Resiliency when it was Carrot-a-Day, and when Ava asked me to retest the updated version, I was once again blown away. It is a wonderful firming and plumping serum that is such a joy to use and makes you realize her mastery over the texture of skincare products. Everything about it breathes freshness, from the cold-pressed aloe juice that is pressed just for them and the impeccably sourced therapeutic essential oils, to the way it makes my skin feel.

Resiliency Face Serum is so powerful

Resiliency Face Serum is my favorite !!! Tried so many organic skin care some smile to chemical some too reach so not goo enough for my dry skin.
Resiliency Face Serum is light but with powerfully effective make me feel just right. You wont feel stickily even you use during summer.

Staple item, LOVE

I bought this full size, after trying OTHER items I trusted the brand enough and loved everything to just go for it and I’m so glad I did. It does smell slightly tequila like some have mentioned haha but the smell dissipates one you rub it in. This has given me the results I was looking for that I didn’t know how to get. It feels very hydrating and does so well on my combo acne prone skin. I use it every night before applying ferns and moss and/or Yasuni. My skin is smoother and more even in color, much less redness.

My Skin Never Looked Better!

I tried this serum from the Boxwalla Beauty box and now, I am addicted to finding aloe-based serums from this line. The only reason I haven't tried ALL their other stuff is due to the price point. I have combination skin with occasional dry patches and I often struggle with clog pores, and texture on my skin (those skin-colored bumps under the skin). I do not have actual acne, it's just very hard to keep the texture at bay. What I found works for me are well formulated acids: Paula's Choice BHA 2%, Drunk Elephant TLC Framboos, and the old version of Sunday Riley Good Genes).

When using the Resiliency serum, I top it off with the Yasuni balm as a protective moisture barrier. It's amazing how subtle the changes were... I don't think I even notice much the next day except that my skin was calm and moisturized. By two weeks, my skin looked and felt the best it ever has throughout my LIFE. My rough texture was reduced to 95%, my skin felt healthy, smooth, supple, and bouncy. People actually commented and asked me for my skin care routine! The awesome part was that, I ONLY used this serum & the Yasuni balm after double cleansing. The fact that it took me so quick to get through my routine each night is so important to me. I do not have the patience for 10 step routines!

Currently, I ran out of this serum and my skin has reverted back to its old, textured, ways. I know that this serum is what was making the most difference because using the Yasuni balm by itself did not give the same results. What sets this treatment a part from the mainstream acids mentioned above is that it did not make my skin feel tight, stripped, or sensitized. It just looks like healthy goddess-skin. The only thing I had a hard time adjusting to is the scent. It's an earthly scent that's not unpleasant but it is substantial and I had to get used to it. Otherwise, this product has become my HOLY GRAIL.


I have tried many serums and this is definitely one of my favorite! I have very acne prone/combination skin and this serum works wonders. I have noticed an improvement in my acne, lightening of scars and my skin is less oily yet hydrated. Will definitely repurchase this! I would love to see this serum in a different kind of packaging though as I feel that the consistency is more suitable for a pump

love this!

very good for my skin allergy. soothing and makes my skin smooth. also very good for dry parts of my skin. this is my favorite so far. thanks for the good product!
