This serum has quickly worked its way into being one of my favorites of all time. First of all, it's bright green -- which, I will admit, scared me a bit at first! I thought maybe I had gotten a bad bottle or something, because I had never seen a serum this shade before. But then I Googled and realized it was right -- and that was all it took to put my mind at ease! It also smells amazing -- fresh and a little sweet, but not overly cloying.

But, more than that, the serum itself is packed with a blend of high-potency antixoidants, vitamins and skin-brighteners that MAKE. SKIN. LOOK. AMAZING. The formula is lightweight and cooling, so even when LA experiences an unforeseen heat wave (like now -- 90 degrees in the middle of April?!), my skin still feels refreshed when I apply it in the morning. This serum is formulated with a mix of amazing ingredients that help to make skin look and feel fabulous:
Galactoarabinan: Derived from the larch tree and helps to exfoliate faster than any lactic or glycolic acid
Hyaluronic Acid: Retains moisture
Chlorophyllin-Copper: An anti-mutagen
Avena Sativa: Contains potassium, magnesium and zinc, and is rich in vitamins and oxygenating chlorophyll
Vitamin F: An essential fatty acid
Can you tell this serum was inspired by Joanna's love of juicing? While I don't drink as many green juices as I maybe should, I do still love them -- and I'm definitely happy to slather some serum inspired by green juice all over my skin!

I use two pumps every morning and massage it gently all over my face and neck. In only a few weeks, I've noticed a dramatic improvement in overall radiance and the appearance of my pores, not to mention my skin has been feeling SUPER hydrated! Even if I miss a day of my skincare routine here and there -- because, let's face it, that's easy to do these days -- my skin is still super soft and glowy all the time now.
Until I can go back to Joanna Vargas for another facial, this is definitely the next best thing!
