Sea buckthorn is one of the most nutrient-rich oils available. It helps repair, reduce the appearance of fine lines, improves skin hydration, and is even beneficial for breakout-prone skin.

Massage a few drops of this nutrient-packed clarifying oil into the skin after cleansing and toning. If you prefer a lighter application, mix it in your palms with your favourite toner to create an emulsion. This serum works as both a serum and moisturizer, so there is no need to follow with a moisturizer.
Note: Sea buckthorn oil is a magical oil, but its deep orange hue can stain fabrics (not skin!). We recommend letting this serum sink in for at least 15 minutes before going to bed or face planting on a pillow.
