What's its secret? Umbrian Clay - with a uniquely high mineral content that neutralizes acidity - too much of which can muddle skin tone and texture and cause breakouts - as well, it clarifies the complexion. Also in the serum is: ginger root, cinnamon bark and burnet root extracts - to reduce the size and appearance of pores, control excess sebum production and clarify the complexion; meadowsweet extract - regulates sebum to control oil and shine; olive leaf extract - rich in antioxidants that help restore suppleness to dry, damaged skin and protect against free radicals; cucumber extract - rich in amino acids and possesses powerful anti-inflammatory properties that soothe, hydrate and cool irritated skin; rosewater - for its balancing, soothing and astringent properties; lavender flower water - to hydrate, tone and soften the skin; and lemon fruit extract - to tone and condition the skin as well and regenerate and exfoliate.
I love that they've created this as a serum rather than a cream as I do love the light feel of a serum. You can wear it on its own or if you want more moisture, follow up with Umbrian Clay Oil-Free Lotion or your regular moisturizer. I've been using by itself in my oily areas and with just a touch of moisturizer in my dry zones and it feels great. I have also noticed that I have to do a powder touch up much less often during the day so I am very hopeful that this will be my summer saviour!
