Carol's Sake & Rice Probiotic Serum

$ 20.00

I designed this serum for my friend Carol, who is my age (40!) and who lives in hot, sunny, tropical Singapore. Just like me, Carol's major issues are with anti-aging and evening skin tone, especially from dark spots and hyperpigmentation. 

But UNLIKE me who has dry AF sensitive skin, Carol's skin is oily/combination. Which means, given her sauna-like living conditions year round, she's probably never going to be able to tolerate my Sake & Rice Sleeping Pack, which I designed for post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, age spots and maximum hydration.

SO: Carol's Sake & Rice Probiotic Serum has the following: 

THREE types of rice (fermented rice, sake, hydrolyzed rice proteins) for intense brightening powers. sake contains kojic acid, an essential element to fading dark spots and anti-aging, while fermented rice and hydrolyzed proteins are proteins that have been rendered small enough to penetrate deeper in your skin, thus having a more intense effect.

Fermented White Willow Bark: White Willow Bark is where the Beta Hydroxy Acid, Salicylic Acid is derived from. Fermenting the white willow bark predigests it so that the beta hydroxy acid is more easily absorbed into your skin, which regulates your oil production and may also contribute to the reduced appearance of spots and scars.

Fermented Lemon Peel. Lemon peel is concentrated with antioxidants, which are celebrated brightening agents. Fermenting the lemon peel allows your skin to better absorb its good qualities. 

Niacinamide (vitamin B3) & N-acetyl Glucosamine: This is a potent combination for lightening age spots and scars.

Panthenol (vitamin B5), maintains your healthy skin barrier so that it doesn't get too dry or too oily 

Fermented Bamboo, for deep hydration and to improve serum texture

Ginger, Garlic, Wasabi extracts, Fermented Coconut & Fermented Radish - to naturally preserve the product.

Full size: 1 oz, Travel size: 7ml.

My Saving Grace

I’m having an identity crisis. For 40 years I have had oily skin. As a Florida gal, I had become accustomed to midday face washes, blotting cloths and an oily glow in pictures. There was a time, before Sabbatical Beauty, when extracting blackheads from my nose and chin was part of my nightly routine. No more! Thanks to Carol’s Sake and Rice Serum, my oily sheen is gone. I use Carol’s Serum daily in my morning routine after Asian Powerhouse and Coconut Serums. It goes on without stickiness and is absorbed very quickly, making it easy to layer other serums on top of it. Now, after only a month or two of use, I cannot fathom my skin without Carol’s Serum.

Amazing serum!

I've been using this serum for a few months now and its by far my favorite SB product. I have oily/acne prone skin and this serum reduced the amount of oil my skin produces and keeps it from breaking out. Its the only serum I never skip, and occasionally it's the only one I use if I'm in a rush. I also have a lot of acne scars that have started to fade after using this. Its such a useful serum and it smells AMAZINGGGG

My new favorite serum

Carol's sake and rice serum with probiotic is just amazing! It gives my skin, glow, it tightened my pores and gave my skin a wonderful suppleness! I won't ever be without this serum.

Recommend for normal to oily skin

The scent was a challenge during the
First few days of using it. Then, it becomes much more subtle. It helps in oil control and easy absorbing. Not bad. Suitable for spring and summer. And will know if this is suitable for drier season later.

Controls breakouts!

I really liked this serum. It absorbs easily, and after using it for a few weeks, my skin had really calmed down. Definitely ordering the full size.
