Marine Serum is the product that launched Sabbatical Beauty into existence. It is supercharged with deep ocean antioxidants that help to heal irritated, red skin, acne-prone skin. It smooths away fine lines and makes your skin just wake up with an unbeatable glow.
Ingredient Deep Dive:
🌊 Sea Kelp Bioferment: Fermented Sea Kelp is so deeply healing to skin that it has launched many a marine-focused skincare brand. This jelly-like, skin microbiome-happy-making substance forms the majority of Marine Serum and gives it is bouncy texture.
🌊 Red Algae, Black Algae, Giant Sea Kelp, Hawaiian Algae: Practically every seaweed in existence is in this serum to help with skin renewal. These seaweeds are often used in cosmeceutical products to increase collagen production and protect collagen and elastin, even skin tone and moisturize. Alginic acid in these sea plant extracts has a superfood effect (with antiviral and antioxidant activity), improves skin hydration, enhances wound healing and increases skin elasticity--thereby having an anti-aging effect. Red algae extract contains a compound that helps to diminish the appearance of wrinkles and age spots, and improve skin elasticity and texture.
🌊 Fermented Wakame: Wakame is a Japanese seaweed that you may often find in your miso soup that is super rich in sea vitamins and minerals and high in Vitamin C for cell renewal. Fermentation helps break down cellular walls, making nutrients more bioavailable to your skin.
🌊 Tahitian Sea Water: contains beneficial sea salts which improve skin (improve skin barrier and skin hydration, reduces inflammation, reduces skin wrinkling and roughness)
🌊 Marine Collagen: helps improve skin moisture levels, synthesize collagen and rejuvenate your skin.

🌊Helps acne & inflammation
Instructions: Apply after cleansing and toning and before facial oils and moisturizers. May be layered with other serums.
I got a travel-size version of this along with the Asian Powerhouse serum as one of my earliest purchases of this and somehow ended up using this up more quickly than the APH. (That being said, a little still goes a long way.) I primarily have dry skin so this seems to do a pretty good job of hydrating even though it's not actually a moisturizer. I like how it seems to calm down my skin when it's more inflamed too!

Gentle and bright
I love Marine serum. It helps my skin feel more balanced and nourished, controlling excess oil and also brightening. I also love how it makes me feel like a mer-being and brings the beautiful sea close. Thank you for making such gorgeous products SB! <3

Great for sensitive skin
I purchased the Revive set as a way of testing out Sabbatical Beauty products. I’ve been so happy with the results that I keep coming back for the full size Marine Serum and other goodies in the set. I have sensitive skin so finding a product that combats signs of aging without leaving me red is very important.

Skin Concerns:Signs of aging, Dullness
Marine serum and Dorian Gray serum were the first Sabbatical Beauty products I tried, and I will keep using them. Why tamper with success.

I have only been using this serum a couple of days and my skin is already thanking me for it! I've tried a lot of skin care products, Marine is the winner. Hands down.
