I designed this serum for my friend Carol, who is my age 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

  • Brightening, evens skin tone
  • Anti-aging
  • Reduces appearance of scars
  • Regulates oil production
  • Hydrating

Apply a few drops to your face after double cleansing and before moisturizing. May be layered with other Sabbatical Beauty serums.
