I've always been very drawn to South Asian herbs and spices, because of how much they factored into Singapore cooking due to the influence of the South Asian diaspora. Radiance Serum highlights some of the most powerful South Asian herbs to counter discoloration, along with key cosmeceutical ingredients to boost their effects.

Ingredient Deep Dive:

✨Saffron Extract: this super fragrant, super expensive yellow herb is the stuff of many a Middle Eastern legend. It's also known for being anti-aging, as it is antioxidant rich, and may increase cellular metabolism;

✨Turmeric Extract: One of my most favorite herbs growing up due to its centrality in South and Southeast Asian curries. Turmeric is widely known to be a skin brightening herb to reduce hyperpigmentation

✨Asafoetida Extract: Also known as hing, asafoetida adds distinctive flavor to South Asian food. It's also known to reduce the signs of scarring and to even skin tone.

✨Bearberry Extract: Added for its astringency to help balance oilier complexion and for its skin brightening effects

✨Niacinamide (Vitamin B3, 5%) and N-Acetyl Glucosamine (3%) which work synergistically together to boost the skin brightening effects of this serum, as well improve the appearance of enlarged pores, fine lines and give a crazy glow.

A gem

Have been using this for the past year and it has done wonders for my skin (use it at night, and use Carol serum in the morning) There is nothing else like this out there with the quality of ingredients... Deeply hydrating without congesting, brightening, plumping... But why is it out of stock?! I need this serum back in my life, my bottle is running low... Please bring it back!!!

In love!

This stuff is so awesome! I live in the desert and used this stuff for the first time today under my moisturizer. Omg, my skin looked plump all day and I didn't have to reapply - that never happens! Plus I know this probably isn't possible, but I swear I just cleansed my face and after just one day I have better tone and my skin is definitely brighter. I'm a fan!

Editing my last review!

At first I thought this smelled weird, but that was only just for one use. Since then it's been smelling fine and I very much like this product! Haven't been using it for a ton of time but I do think it's helping with hyperpigmentation,

Funky smell

Is this supposed to smell really bad? Ive only used it once so far so I can't attest to its effectiveness for me yet but I can say it smells kinda funky. Not sure if that's normal or not.

Helps with hyperpigmentation

Works as described, with a lovely toasty scent.
