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. 

Benefits 

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). We often combine three types of helichrysum: Corsican (the first choice for pain reduction, including painful acne breakouts), Croatian, and Albanian, as each one has a slightly different chemical composition and aroma, and all three together give the broadest spectrum of healing components and the most complex scent. 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. 

Skin Types

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

Directions

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.

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

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 serum is something I feel was missing from my routine. I pair it with a couple drops of Ferns & moss serum & my skin appears brighter & smoother the next day. So worth every penny.
