I designed this pressed serum to provide a cocktail of amazing food and nutrition to your skin microbiome. You may have heard the term microbiome thrown around a lot recently! It refers to a complex ecosystem of microbes that live on different skin sites. Making your skin microbiome happy is integral to smooth, calm and breakout-free skin.

🦠Saccaromyces ferment is fermented yeast. It's rich in essential minerals, amino acids and vitamins, and can help with calming skin, brightening and wrinkle repair. ⁠

🦠Fermented cocoa. Cocoa is rich in antioxidants that help with skin repair. Fermentation makes the good stuff within it more bioavailable for your good skin microbes.⁠

🦠Resveratrol is part of the polyphenols you see in red wine. It's the core component of what gives red wine its anti-aging, redness reducing effected. We used fermented resveratrol to make it even more bioavailable for your skin. ⁠

🦠Beta Glucan is a type of polysaccharide (ours comes from reishi mushrooms!) that is an effective *prebiotic* (or, food for the good skin microbes). ⁠

🦠Yogurt extract will contain a little lactic acid to help with exfoliation ⁠

  • Redness and inflammation reducing
  • Helps acne
  • Balances oilier skin and hydrates drier skins
  • Primer like finish allows for easy makeup application on top
  • Brightening

Use either as a moisturizer or as a last serum. Use half a rice grain size to start, apply gently around your face, after cleansing and toning.

Best moisturizer serum combo ever

I’ve never truly had a great time with pressed serum application, truth be told, but I’ve always enjoyed the effects of them. It’s like they’re a super step between serums and moisturizing, that if you take that step, your face seems to be extra balanced and happy. In steps microbiome pressed serum, and wow! I still can’t believe how smooth and creamy it is, how EASY it is to apply (no special techniques, no pilling, nada), just smooth it on and view the glory of a happily balanced, redness free, oil free face. All day. I love this stuff.

Balance balance balance

So this is something I wasn't sure how to use at first but was absolutely amazing in balancing my skin. It really helps to keep your face microbiome healthy and the acne away! In using this for 6 weeks, I didn't have any acne. When I stopped my routine, hello acne! It was almost like clockwork. Use this to create an awesome microbiome for your face and balance out everything!

New SB Love!

This jar of silky smooth gel is a work horse of epic proportions. It keeps me matte, keeps acne at bay, regulates my oil production, and brightens my face! When I pick at my face, it also helps to bring the redness down quickly! So this is definitely a product that I will keep in my morning skincare routines for good!
