You guys know I am always up for trying natural beauty products (especially skincare!) with ingredients I can actually recognize and feel good about putting on my skin. And although I don’t mind splurging a bit when it comes to taking care of my skin, it’s always delightful to find a skincare solution that’s not only gentle & all-natural but also easily affordable! Such is the case with the new Seventh Generation Skin-Boosting Serums
There are six different facial serums in the range, each tailored to a different skin need, that feed your skin healthy hydrating nutrients without clogging pores.
– Hydrating (Restores Moisture Balance with Jojoba Oil)
– Soothing (Calms and Relieves with Oat Extract)
– Clearing (For oily, acne-prone skin with Tea Tree oil)
– Firming (Strengthens & Tones with Baobob)
– Revitalizing (Smooths Fine lines with Rosehip)
– Protecting (Defends against the elements with Prickly Pear)
I had been trying out the Hydrating Boost, specially formulated to restore natural moisture balance for dry skin.
Product Description :
Hydrating Boost provides all-day moisture to help relieve and protect against chapping, cracking and roughness due to dryness. Jojoba, Acai and Passion flower oils help restore your skin’s natural moisture balance for noticeably softer, more radiant skin.
Highly concentrated – no water added
Won’t clog pores
Free of parabens, phthalates and synthetic fragrances
USDA-certified Biobased (99%)
Prunus armeniaca (apricot) kernel oil, prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond) oil, vitis vinifera (grape) seed oil, simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, passiflora edulis (passionflower) seed oil, oryza sativa (rice) bran oil, helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, euterpe oleracea (acai) fruit oil, orbignya oleifera (babassu) seed oil, anthemis nobilis (chamomile) flower oil, lavandula angustifolia (lavender) oil, vanilla planifolia bean extract, and rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf extract.
As you can see from the ingredient list above, this is an oil-based concentrated serum with no added water. Despite the popularity of face oils, I realize that there are still plenty of people who are as averse to skincare oils as I was. If you have oily skin — even if you don’t have acne — it seems most counter-intuitive to ‘add’ more oil. But the fact is that facial oils do not make your skin more oily and won’t make you break out. When the skin has the oil it needs, it’s less likely to produce additional oil. Check out this video for more….
With that concern out of the way, now let’s talk about the Hydrating Boost. The formula is very light and soaks in quickly. The instructions call for only one to two pumps, either used directly on your skin or mixed with your favorite facial moisturizer. I love the hydration benefits and the subtle scent (from essential oils), but what’s most impressive is the noticeably ‘drier’ finish that doesn’t make my face look like a grease ball. Plus, every Boost serum has been clinically proven to be non-comedogenic so no worries about your pores getting clogged!
Another great thing (for me) about this serum is that it’s tested Gluten Free and do not contain any wheat-containing ingredients….yayy! The all-natural formula is also hypoallergenic and free of any harsh preservatives so appropriate for use on sensitive skin and the delicate skin around your eyes.
Bottom Line -
Formulated with pure botanical oils that are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and essential fatty acids, Seventh Generation Boosts are perfect to give your skin care routine a lift…naturally! They have everything your skin needs, nothing it doesn’t.
