1 oz | 30 mL glass bottle

Lapis Blue Tansy Face Oil

  • Recommended for: NOVA is suitable for all skin.

    Target concerns:
    + Dullness
    + Dark Spots
    + Uneven Skin Tone

    NOVA is powered by THD vitamin C—a highly efficacious, oil-soluble ingredient that deeply penetrates the skin to brighten dark spots and improve hyperpigmentation. At a potent level of 15%, this treatment gives skin an immediate boost of radiance and significantly brightens skin in seven days. Best yet, the powerful formula is gentle on sensitive skin, so everyone can enjoy its incredible benefits.

    A key ingredient in NOVA is antioxidant-rich super root turmeric which gives this serum a ginger-like smell that fades upon application. Like all of our products, NOVA is 100% natural and made without any added fragrances.

    Clinical results:
    In a blind use test on 65 men and women (ages 25-59 yrs), participants reported the following results after 7 days of twice-daily use: 

    • Brighter skin in 7 days
    • No new breakouts
    • No irritation

    Scent: Turmeric, ginger-like
    Texture: Silky, creamy
    Color: Pale yellow

  • Apply 1-2 pumps onto skin after cleansing and before moisturizing. For additional skin-tone-evening benefits, use 2-3 drops of LAPIS facial oil as the final step before applying SPF

    *Store in a cool, dry place and out of direct sunlight.

Lovely product! But packaging???

I absolutely love this product. I have very sensitive, difficult skin and this product was amazing from the first application. I went through it fairly quickly (3mo eek) and, unfortunately, it’s hard to get all the product out of the bottle. Even turning it upside down makes it tough. I think a different bottle would help get maximum results from this product (and last longer)!

Super great vitamin c option!

Been using other vitamin C's with herbivore products. It's great to have it all in one brand now. It's very light and super easy to apply. Not a sticky serum like texture like other vitamin c. Love how it blends with my oils or other moisturizer. Been using for 3 weeks and my skin is noticably brighter and less redness!

Instantly brightens!!

This is my first vitamin c serum I’ve ever used and I can see the brightness after just one use! I use numerous serums before moisturizer and this has just became a staple. It does have a strong Tim Eric scent so if ur not fond of that , might not be for you

NOVA

Such a dreamy formula! On the thicker side, similar to a moisturizer but soaks in well. Such a dreamy ginger scent, light enough to wear on a daily basis.
