Our Apple Cider Serum doesn't just smell of actual apple cider (due to concentrated natural apple and cinnamon extracts!), it also combines both powerhouse ingredients to make a a potent serum for exfoliation, brightening and discoloration.

To make this serum, we combined both Apple Extract with an Apple Alpha Hydroxy Complex. The main Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) in Apples is Malic acid, which helps with the shedding of dead skin cells, making it easier for actives to penetrate. Apple Extract works along with the Apple AHA complex to help with evening skin tone and discoloration. This function of lightening discoloration is further enhanced with Cinnamon extract, which naturally helps inhibit tyrosinase activity, which is imperative for the production of melanin.

Paraben free. Vegan.

Yet another serum I want to eat or drink

This smells exactly like apple cider. And it's super hydrating which helps to alleviate your redness. It also helps to smooth and brighten! It is awesome and I love using it in fall!

So yummy for the skin!

This smells EXACTLY like apple cider. I love the consistency of this serum, and how it brightens my skin after using. It also keeps my skin supple and hydrated so that I wake up with skin that is not overly oily, but just dewy!

Extremely sad is only a seasonal product

This is one of the best serums I have ever tried from Sabbatical Beauty. Together with Pumpkin Spice Latte Serum and Maple Essence Toner has improved my skin a lot. It's softer and smoother than before, I used twice a day. The only downside is that it's only available for a very short period of time during the fall

So sweetly effective

I absolutely ADORE the apple cider serum for so many reasons: the consistency, the hydration, the exfoliation, the brightening effects, and Oh the scent!!!! Paired with pumpkin spice latte serum, I have officially found my favorite SB combination of all time. It smoooths, it brightens, and it keeps my face calm and oil free all day. I absolutely love it. I bought a full size right after purchasing the fall box, and I will never be without it!

Perfect Matte Serum

I am seriously in love with this serum. It’s the first serum that I’ve ever used that lives up to it’s claims. I have very oily skin, but this helps balance my sebum production (along with the other Fall Box products). I use this in my morning routine as my first serum. I can also just use this as a serum/moisturizer if necessary. It’s that moisturizing! I will be purchasing the full size once it becomes available.
