A silky, gel-like serum, Truth Serum Lavender glides across the skin - the gel matrix is slightly stronger than in the original Truth Serum - so you need slightly less as it has more 'glideability'. (A totally made up skin-care descriptor that I am slightly embarrassed to use but for which I can't seem to locate a replacement in my brain!) Two pumps should be enough for your whole face for daytime use, and four pumps for night time. A little really does go a long way, as with all Sage and Mage products.
Because of the strength of the gel matrix, the blend could also hold more nourishing oils without breaking down into a liquid, so there is a higher ratio of oils-to-gel- in this take on the original Truth Serum.
Truth Serum Lavender is more tailored to skin in need of a little healing, with the addition of St John's Wort infused oil. It can be used on skins that tend to spots or mild acne, with rose geranium to balance sebum production, and lavender for its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. Patchouli is great for dry and mature skins - as are all the skin-loving base oils used in the blend: calendula, carrot, vitamin E, jojoba, rosehip...the full ingredients are:
Certified organic aloe vera leaf juice, vegetable glycerine, oils of cammelia, jojoba, rosehip, sunflower, St John’s wort (hypericum), olive refined and sunflower oils; carrot seed extract, vitamin E, calendula flowers, carrageenan extract, essential oils of lavender angustifolia, patchouli and rose geranium; annatto, natural preservative.
The scent? Predominantly lavender...with almonds! The organic aloe vera juice and carrageenan combine to create a natural almondy scent. I love it.
I hope you do too.
Comes to you in 25ml glass bottle with serum pump. (The photos I have included with the jar is just to show you what it looks like...so richly yellow from all the calendula and carrot oils!)
Made with love and wrapped the same way,
Sage and Mage xxxx
