One of Sabbatical Beauty's OG hits is the Dorian Gray's Serum - named after the novel of the same name by one of my favorite 19th century authors, the flamboyant Oscar Wilde. The titular Dorian Gray was a beautiful young man who never seemed to age because he made a deal with the devil. His body would never age, while the portrait of him would age hidden away in a closet.
Drawing from this inspiration we've created our most potent anti-aging serum, so that your face will stay the same without the assistance of an aging portrait in a hidden closet. This serum contains a very mild retinol (5%) which is delivered in liposome form to improve deliverability of the active ingredient, and a very stable and gentle Vitamin C in terms of a Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate liposome. Other yumminess includes Ceramides (skin-identical lipids that help moisturize and fill in the appearance fine lines), Hydrolyzed Rice Protein, and two types of Yeast Extract (to brighten and soothe your skin). I also infused the Dorian Gray serum with fermented lactobacillus, which enhances cell turnover and increasing hydration for potent anti-aging results.

I have extremely sensitive skin, so I was hesitant at first, but I started by purchasing the sample size and fell in love with DG! It has completely changed the look and feel of my skin. It feels brighter, smoother, more even. Its hard to explain, but when I look at myself after the use of DG for the last 3-4 months, I'm just so happy with my skin.

This serum is beautiful going on, but it's so sticky! My hair gets stuck in it and I can only wear it at night. Even then I wake up with pieces of hair stuck to my face. Sorry, I don't think I've seen this problem from other reviews.

My skin is so much softer, I have no texture, the redness is disappearing and any discoloration is gone! I’ve also noticed a bounciness to my skin. I’m so excited to keep using this amazing serum- this is definitely my secret way to remain unchanged ;)

I'm obsessed with the Dorian Gray's Serum. It feels lightweight and covers easily. The ingredients are top notch. I feel immortal. And as long as my soul doesn't get trapped in a painting, I would bathe in this stuff if I could.
