Serum Elixir

The thought of using an oil as a facial moisturizer may seem odd. It might seem like it would make your skin too oily. Amazingly enough you will find that most people's skin actually reacts very well to facial oils which are full of things your skin needs like vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and EFA’s.

Greensong’s Serum Elixir facial oils are made intentionally to support your body’s own natural processes. The oils are light, nourishing, healing and are easily absorbed. They will not leave your skin feeling greasy, clog pores or diminish your skin’s own ability to make sebum. What they will do is help to balance your skin’s oil production and provide nutrients to your cells to help them produce the collagen and elastin needed to keep you skin supple, soft and hydrated. Greensong’s Serum Elixirs are pure and concentrated so you only need to use a few drops each day and you can be assured that each drop is packed with only natural, beneficial ingredients.

To use: Put one pump’s worth of Elixir onto your fingertips and massage into your clean, damp face and neck until absorbed. If you like you can mist again with the Skin Tonic or for super deep moisturizing follow with Rosewood Rejuvenation Cream or another rich moisturizing cream that you like.
