Indulging in joy is a political act of self preservation and care. Radiate from the inside out with this brightening serum that evens skin tone by reducing the appearance of age spots, sun spots, and scarring. This serum contains high concentrations of three natural extracts that have traditionally been associated with brightening skin tone in South Asia: Saffron extract (anti aging, antioxidant, increases cellular metabolism), Turmeric extract (helps skin glow, reduces pigmentation) and Asafoetida extract (reduces scarring and evens skin tone), as well as Bearberry Extract (brightens skin, astringent), as well as Niacinamide (vitamin B3), which combined with N-Acetyl Glucosamine helps improve the appearance of enlarged pores, fine lines, dullness and scarring.
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.
This serum was formerly known as Radiance Serum.

I loooove love love this formula for my skin, it's helped so much with dryness and redness, but it's hidden talent is saving my cuticles! I never had dry/peeling cuticles until recently moving to the desert, and after lathering this product on after a shower, my cuticles were instantly looking and feeling better. As someone who talks with my hands, I want them looking nice 😋

Thank you for your review. We're so happy to hear you're loving the Saffron Serum! - SB Team
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!!!

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,
