Illume Brightening Serum

For improved luminosity and brighter, healthier skin. Lightweight and fragrance-free, Illume Brightening Serum prevents moisture loss and helps to protect and strengthen the skinʼs barrier. 

Key ingredients:

Vitamin B3 (niacinamide): this essential vitamin with powerful anti-inflammatory action strengthens the skin’s barrier, helps to calm rosacea, reduces redness and the appearance of pores. Helps protect skin from UV, blue light damage and urban pollution. We use 5% niacinamide in this serum.

Hyaluronic acid: for immediate skin revival. Delivers softer, smoother skin and improved elasticity straight after application.  

Organic lingonberry extract: native to Scandinavia, this superfruit is rich in antioxidants. Studies have shown it helps to reduce the appearance of skin damage and uneven pigmentation. It also helps to defend skin from UV and harmful environmental factors.

Organic pomegranate extract: providing antioxidant protection and encouraging cell turnover, pomegranate also stimulates skin elasticity. 

Unscented. Contains no essential oils, fragrance, alcohol or silicones.

 

30ml glass bottle with pump dispenser.

Apply a couple of drops to cleansed face and neck. Use your fingertips to gently pat serum around the eye area. Allow to fully absorb then follow with moisturiser or organic face oil.

An amazing addition!

Have added illume serum to my daily skin care regime. First Rosehip cleanser, second Illume then Rosehip oil. Leaves my mature skin soft, smooth and glowing with no unwanted oiliness.
It will definitely stay as part of my daily routine!

Great product

It really seems to be improving my fine lines and I totally appreciate the fact that it's vegan friendly. I'm using it with the rosehip oil (fabulous). I'll be back!

Absolutely Fantastic

I have suffered with hormonal acne for many, many years and have used so many different products to no avail. This works! I love it.

Visible difference

I’ve been using it daily for four weeks and started noticing changes to my face in less than two weeks. My skin looks brighter, my pores are practically invisible and those pesky crows feet around my eyes don’t look so deep. Definitely a keeper.

I see you’ve (finally!!) launched a new cream which I’m going to try next alongside the serum. Thanks x

serum

very moisturizing, feels nice on skin.
After 2 days of using it, it made my skin feeling fuller, as it was moisturized completely.
It is also very calming, as well.
