Natural Anti-Aging Facial Serum {giveaway}

I mentioned a bit earlier today in the Natural Moisturizer post, that I’d been trying out this natural anti-aging serum, and the woman behind it (Roxanne) has graciously asked me if we could do a giveaway.

So….yay for one of you!!

Roxanne is a mother of a 2-year-old daughter, living an unconventional life, eating real food, obsessed with natural beauty, questioning mainstream medicine, doing yoga, and making everything from scratch. (you can find her blog at The Holistic Mama)

This skin care serum is specially formulated especially for pregnant and nursing moms, which means it’s also safe while trying to conceive, with all organic ingredients.Super important when you’re trying to lower the amount of toxins in your body and live a cleaner life.

Roxanne developed this serum to have a natural alternative to products that contained ingredients that you shouldn’t use during pregnancy. The great thing is, natural products like this can be used for even better results than the chemical laden ones we’re used to.

This serum is formulated to help the skin remain smooth with a more even skin tone.

One of the main ingredients in this serum is Rosehip seed oil, which I’d never used before, and it’s supposed to be really good for skin rejuvenation.

“Rosehip seed oil is considered a cellular regenerative oil, also regenerates scar tissue, attenuates wrinkles and age spots and helps to prevent and fade stretch marks due to pregnancy and other factors. Rosehip seed oil is a potent anti-inflammatory oil with polyunsaturated essential fatty acids and trans-retinoic acid that helps when treating dermatitis, eczema or psoriasis providing an immediate relief for dry skin.” {read more}

Serum ingredients: Rosehipseed oil, macadamia nut oil,olive oil,vitamin e,tea tree oil, lavender essential oil,licorice root extract,neem oil.

My Review:

This serum, though consisted mostly of oils, actually absorbs fairly quickly into the skin. It seemed rather heavy when I first applied it and I wondered if I was going to leave oil stains on my pillow that night. But by the time I made it to bed a few minutes later, there was no oily residue waiting to wreck my linens.

The scent is also lovely, but doesn’t linger around forever to drive you crazy. Which is great for me because I’d rather not smell strongly, not even if it’s something as wonderful as lavender.

I also love how it moisturizes my skin, and I tend to forget to take care of my face since it’s not near as dry all the time like it was before I started the Oil Cleansing Method.

    way cool-would love to try it as I am having fertility issues/trying to conceive!

  2. says

    Thanks for the chance to win… I’m already starting to get my first early wrinkles in my mid-20s and have been trying to find a good natural anti aging fighter.

  3. Sandra says

    I would love to try the serum out, as a mother of 6 boys (well 7 if you include my husband) the powers to be know I could certainly look younger and less stressed. Thank you for considering me :)

  4. Courtney says

    Thanks for the great review, Donielle. I’d love to win the serum to try it out myself!!

  5. Debbie Loveless says

    I’m always looking for natural ways to live younger (so I can live longer)…might as well look younger too!

  6. Danielle H says

    Thanks for the suggestion, can’t wait to give it a whirl and see what wonders it can do for me!

  7. Anna says

    I liked Holistic Mama on FB.

    (Quick question: I’ve always heard that licorice root was contraindicated during pregnancy since it’s a uterine stimulant. Granted, this is a topical application, not something taken internally like a tea, so does that make a difference?)

  8. Susanne says

    This sounds wonderful and I definitely could use something to help with looking younger! =)
    Thank you!

  9. Debbie C says

    Omg…I so need something for my face! I’ve always looked YEARS younger than I am but not so much anymore. Ever since I had my son my worst nightmare has happened…I’ve gone from looking 20 to looking my actual age (add 17 to 20!). I’ve also started breaking out and have some brown spots. Ugh. It isn’t fair that I’ve gone from looking like a kid to looking like an old lady practically overnight!

  13. gina says

  18. says

    Really excited about this! I have been wanting to try the serum since I read your blog post about it the other day! sign me up for the giveaway please :)

  19. says

    Would love to win this.. would be perfect for me right now! and I love your website! Thanks SO much for doing it and helping us find all these important and healthier ways to eat and personal care products to use! It is so important as doctors have Zero care about real correct and healthy nutrition and chemicals contained in personal care products… after having PCOS and going to my doctors and being referred to a specialist (which i only went once) ALL they are interested in is prescribing medications (designed for other conditions) b/c that is just ‘what you do’… and I’m really ticked they totally discount charting :( and I was told it wouldn’t help me… well I beg to differ – how can being aware of your body not help at least to know what’s going on!!! Thanks again for all the time you invest in this website!

  20. says

    Yay! I love the idea of this wonderful serum! When I go to the health food store I will often try the samples there and they are usually wonderful. Sadly, often too expensive!! This one seems rather reasonable!! Thanks for offering the give away!!

  21. Jennifer says

    Super excited to find your website! This serum sounds amazing ~ I will definitely be checking out “The Holistic Mama” and her etsy store! Thank you!!
