Ferns And Moss Face Serum
What is it? Ferns and Moss is a wonderfully nourishing thick oil designed to help with moisture retention, healing and repair.
Notes from the Curator: If you have dry, mature or sensitive skin, we highly recommend this oil serum.
Let’s get Nerdy: Says Ava, “Two of the key ingredients in this original formula come from the Amazon rainforest: the medicinal andiroba oil, with a long list of healing properties, from detoxing (removes puffiness) and antibacterial effects (heals and prevents acne) to skin rejuvenating powers (increases the levels of collagen); and copaiba balsam, with its unique sweet scent and well-documented anti-inflammatory, anti-acne, and foremost soothing properties”.
- About the Brand
Earthwise Beauty was created by Ava Zhan Ava grew in Poland and moved to the U.S. and worked as an editor for a major U.S. publisher. She felt compelled to make and share her love of natural ingredients and skincare crafted from medicinal plants, that felt more satisfying to her than the skincare she found in stores. And so Earthwise was born. Using Ava's products feels like walking deep into lush living forests.
- How to Use
Shake periodically to remix. Massage a few drops or more into freshly cleansed, moist skin day and night. Use alone or over a facial oil primer—an aloe-based primer will merge with the oil and facilitate its absorption. Rub in with fingertips, creating outward, upward circles, to stimulate circulation and enhance absorption. Use less during the day and more at night, or use only at night, more if you feel drier and less if your skin is moderately dry (oily zones can be omitted entirely). This serum can be used on the face, neck, décolleté, and under eyes.
In freezing winter weather, rub a little extra into cheeks and the nose in particular to prevent getting frostbitten or chapped or to heal chapped skin. Alternately, use a more generous amount as a nourishing anti-aging face mask and tissue off the remainder after two hours. Avoid using over the eyes as a mask, as this thicker, slower-absorbing serum might drip into your eyes. Skin Types
