Barefaced Overachiever Serum
Barefaced Overachiever: One product can't do it all, but we got pretty close.
What it is: A skin-boosting serum that takes your skincare routine to the next level by strengthening your skin barrier. Acts as both a retinoid booster or can be used as a retinoid alternative during pregnancy. Helps to boost collagen production, minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines, firm the skin, plus reduce skin sensitivity and redness.
How to use it: Apply 1-3 pumps to face, neck and chest twice daily following Liquid Gold. Layer after the Brightening Serum.
How long it takes to see results: It can take 8-12 weeks to begin to see improvement. We recommend taking a makeup-free photo right now and then again at the 6 and 12 week mark to keep track of your journey!


Sizes: 1 fl oz / 30 mL
