    Amazing serum.

    I received this serum complimentary from Herbivore in exchange for my honest review. This is a very gently alternative for retinol . It works great and very gentle to the skin . The serum is lightweight and soaks into my skin nicely. It doesn’t feel stuck at all . If regular retinols is to strong for your skin this serum will work perfectly.

    Faded dark spot + smoothed rough texture! Sensitive skin approved

    I have dry, sensitive skin and traditional retinols tend to cause stinging, flaky patches and prolonged redness. I am very pleased that the bakuchiol in the Moon Fruit serum is more gentle and I never experienced any irritation even from the first usage. I’ve been able to work myself up to using this serum once nightly. Two pumps is enough to cover my face and neck and I always follow with a rich moisturizer such as Pink Cloud Cream. This serum has a subtle berry scent likely from the schisandra berry extract as opposed to any added fragrance. The peptides and lightweight lotion consistency make this serum very hydrating. Despite the gentle formula, I have seen real results within two weeks! My skin looks more even toned due to dark spots fading and any rough texture has been smoothed, leaving my skin feeling softer and looking clearer. I’m hopeful that with continued usage I will see improvements on my fine lines as well!

    Love this product

    I am so happy to add this product into my new routine! I use right before applying the Aquarius moisturizer in the evening. I’ve been using it straight for a week and can feel the difference. Prior to this product I was using a harsher retinol - and my skin feels brighter and firmer with this product. Highly recommend!

    Moon Fruit Serum

    Love the texture & quality of this product. Goes on thick, soaks in well, and doesn’t leave me feeling greasy or oily. Not to mention it smells delicious! The perfect retinol alternative. This paired with the bakuchiol serum, my fine lines & wrinkles don’t stand a chance!

    Wonderful Addition to my skincare

    I had tried the Bakuchiol serum months back and it caused a reaction to my skin (breaking out, etc.) - so I decided to try this one out to see if my skin could handle it. I'm VERY pleased with the results I'm getting. I have very sensitive skin and this serum doesn't irritate it at all. I've been using this for the past couple weeks and have already noticed a difference in my skin's texture and the way it looks. I would 100% recommend this product for anyone with sensitive skin!
