How do I select the correct serum for my face?

You can answer this question by asking yourself what your greatest concern is regarding your face?

Is it very dry, wrinkly or do you have lots of pigmentation?

Let’s first try to understand how a serum work.

The molecules in a serum are smaller than those in a moisturiser. This means it can deposit ingredients deeper into your skin.

A serum is therefore  the ideal product to use to improve the overall look of your complexion. The active ingredients bring anti-oxidants into your skin, restoring cell growth and decreasing the size of pores.

The smaller molecular structure of a serum cream enables it to penetrate the dermis of the skin while moisturisers kan only penetrates to the epidermis.


Recommendations for the dry skin

Dry Skin

Moisture serum

Essense Moisture Serum combines potent hydrating ingredients to help restore and moisturise dry, dehydrated and sensitive skin while optimising moisture levels. Inca seed omega oil contains polyunsaturated fatty acids (omega 3, 6, and 9), that have antioxidant properties and help to prevent trans-epidermal water loss. Inca seed omega oil is exceptionally high in Omega 3 fatty acids which make it the richest of all known natural omega sources. It helps to decrease redness caused by UVB, maintains skin elasticity and hydration, helps to stimulate skin healing, and helps to maintain skin hydration.

Hyaluronic acid helps to intensely rehydrate and improve the skin’s elasticity and suppleness of the skin. Rooibos infused oil and vitamin E help to leave skin noticeably soft and smooth.

Essense Moisture Serum will deliver a concentrated burst of hydrating and anti-ageing ingredients.


Recommendations for fine wrinkles



Annique Forever Young Bo-Serum is your Botox in a bottle, but unlike Botox it is a safe, non-toxic, non-invasive alternative to surgery or injections.

Prominent wrinkles and lines are prone to appear on areas of the face that involve repeated facial expressions like smiling and frowning. Bo-Serum can help visibly soften these lines, giving the skin a more youthful appearance.

Forever Young Bo-Serum is a highly effective serum, containing BONT-L peptide that is a synthetic peptide that mimics the results that you would get with Botox without the normal risk associated with Botox. This product will help you stop fine lines and wrinkles from further developing and will also soften and relax existing ones.

Forever Young Bo-Serum also contains anti-ageing Rooibos extract as well as Cogon grass botanical extract that is an extraordinary ingredient high in potassium that is not only very moisturising but also excellent for helping your skin to retain moisture.

Recommendations for pigmentation


Brightening treatment

The advance Essense Brightening Treatment improves the appearance of brown spots, dark spots and age spots and restores radiant luminosity to the complexion, promoting brighter, younger and healthier-looking skin.

Vitamin C Complex is one of the key ingredients in Essense Brightening Treatment and it contains two types of vitamin C in a significant percentage, which reduces and prevents pigmentation. It encourages collagen production, reduces UV-induced cells, and evens out skin tone. Liquorice extract improves the appearance of brown spots and restores radiant luminosity to the complexion due to its ability to excellently inhibit the production of melanin in the skin. Liquorice extract is also known for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Vit E prevents skin damage induced by free radicals and helps in increasing the skin’s moisture content. Rooibos infused oil offers soothing benefits to the skin and is rich in natural antioxidants.
