Facelift Vitamin C, DMAE & Peptide serum




If you want it all- this is the serum for you!  Serums are very potent, concentrated doses of actives in a water-based solution. The idea behind serums is that they're a booster for your regular skin care routine- and we like to keep ours simple to make sure that you're really absorbing the actives and getting the maximum benefit.  They function best when a moisturizer is applied over them to help seal in the goodness.

This is one powerful serum!!  We've combined the very best anti-aging ingredients into something that combats the most common symptoms of aging.

DMAE 3%- it's the only ingredient that addresses skin sag- baggy eyes, turkey neck- and all of that fun stuff.  No- it's not exactly like having a facelift (no stitches or bandages, or hospital bills), but every last millimeter helps.

Vitamin C- there's nothing that Vitamin C doesn't help.  

  • Anti-oxidant to help protect your skin from environmental damage 
  • Helps heal sun damage
  • Great for fighting acne
  • In time (it does take a while- months rather than days or weeks) it can help to fade age spots and freckles
  • In about 60-75% of the population it rebuilds collagen so it also helps with fighting wrinkles and aging
  • Gives your skin a fresh, healthy glow.

We use 3% magnesium ascorbyl phosphate.  It's very shelf stable, and does not sting.  It's equivalent to about 10% l-ascorbic acid. 

Syn-Coll is generally found in the very high end ($100 plus) products.  It's a specialty peptide that helps to rebuild collagen- this will help get rid of wrinkles.  The manufacturer says you can expect a 350% decrease in wrinkles in just 3 months.  We're not going to say that- but  it does make a difference.  It's great for those little nagging lines- crow's feet, the laugh lines, and the other assorted crinkles.  The moment you put it on you can feel the peptides go to work- skin feels tighter, smoother, and much firmer.

Certified Organic Green Tea extract is loaded with polyphenols and is a fantastic anti-oxident.  It also helps with inflammation, and has slightly astringent qualities, so it feels fresh and lovely.

Panthenol- another great hydrator and humectant.  It instantly plumps skin. 

To turbo charge the anti-aging effects of Facelift check out our  brand new Grand Reserve Moisturizers.  They're packed with great ingredients, and make your skin softer, smoother, and more radiant in just a few weeks.

You get a one-ounce bottle of this super-concentrated serum- just a few drops are all you need.  Samples are a 5 ml bottle.

Review by ROSEANNE E
I saw this serum in an article and immediately had to try it. the photos in the article showed a dramatic change in the girl's photo. Beautiful serum! Truly the best I think I have ever tried! It has brightened my skin, eliminated redness, it is more even toned and smoother. I will definitely repurchase! Stunning results!! If you can only have one serum, this is it!!

Review by Melody M
Ok.. this stuff is no joke. In the week I've been using this at night (though not every night), I've seen a significant, and I mean VERY significant change in the texture of my skin. Less bumpy and sandpapery, and a lot less redness and my complexion is brighter. It hasn't been long enough, but I can almost feel it working on the little fine lines around my eyes. Works wonders for the bit of acne I have too. It can be rather drying though, so moisturize after the product sinks in.

Review by Jeanette M
Pretty darn great for a few reasons: great for managing breakouts and keeping them at bay and great for fine lines in the eye area in particular. Love this serum, and that's saying a lot since I'm usually very skeptical about skincare products unless it does a lot for me.

This serum hasReview by Raven P.
This serum has been nothing short of amazing. I am 42 and have problematic, extremely sensitive skin. I have wrinkles, sun damage, acne, and to top it off, I am allergic to everything. I ordered a sample of the serum and have been using it less than a week. I already notice my deep frown lines are much less noticeable, as are are a lot of my fine lines. My skin looks brighter and my under eye area looks less crepe-like. I love the fact that this is not a greasy product and that I can put it on before makeup without having to wait forever for it to absorb. I have tried quite a few products lately and this is the first one that made a serious difference in how my skin looks.

Oily and/or mixedReview by Mona Tabita M.
Oily and/or mixed skin? Read on!
This is a longer review, but it helped me so much I had to write it all.

I have tendencies to get super oily at times, especially in summer (oh, boyiii!)
This serum actually normalized my skin and made it calm down the oil production significantly! I didn’t purchase a sample because of oil control, but found that it had this ”side effect” for my skin that made me jump of joy!

I have been struggling so much with oil production in large parts of my life that an oil platform would be envious…No. I am not kidding here. I could apply make up and after 30 minutes I was already so shiny I had to blot. Yes! That . oily!
Not blotting was not an option. My makeup slid right off of my face and I was so tired of it. Doing all the so called right things to battle the problem, like drinking a lot of water, taking vitamins, applying moisture instead/or under oil or creams Did. Not. Help.
And after having a rather unpleasant encounter with Jojoba oil on my face, just to try that route in pure desperation, (which left me with cystic bumps on my face that took over two months to clear up), I one day tried the Facelift Vitamin C, DMAE & Peptide serum, and it opened up a new world of how my skin felt!
Yes that sounds like a cliché, but it is the only way for me to describe the difference. My makeup stayed on longer than ever, didn’t have to blot that frequently at all, and…well, the serum just simply calmed down my face!

__Calmed down your face , you say? I am intrigued, tell me more!__


How I personally used it: The first few times I tried the serum I pat it on my face, let it dry and then applied Raspberry Moisturizer. Ok, that worked fine.
But then I started to take one squirt of the serum and mix it in my Raspberry Moisturizer every time I was going to apply it to save a step, and WOW! Then I really felt my skin respond! So mixing it with my Raspberry Moisturizer every time, was like getting a fresh batch of vitamin C infused cream every time I put it on! Since then I am hooked. This is a product I can`t live without.
Now it is heavy winter here with minus 20 degrees and I had to switch to a different moisturizer because of the heavy cold here. I only have use the c vitamin serum once a week as my skin is normalized beautifully and it is enough with once a week in winter time. In summer I did it every day with breaks in-between just to make sure my skin didn’t take it for granted. And since I always use some sort of sunscreen or mineral foundation on my face going outside anyway, I had no problem using it once a day in summertime.

I HIGHLY recommend a sample of this, at least you should give it a try, because maybe it will work on you as it did for me. And if it doesn`t you haven’t lost big money on it since Karen offers generous samples enough to try things out.

I started usingReview by jennifer D.
I started using the Super Serum AM and PM and my skin did well. I have a few fine lines around my eyes I want to lessen so I added this in PM. This seemed to take my skin to the next level in; clarity, tone, lightening melasma, smoothness and glow. I haven't seen any major changes in my eye area, but I wasn't expecting anything drastic anyway. I hope in time I will see changes, but even if I don't I am still happy w/ my other results. I have HIGHLY reactive, sensitive skin (rosacea, acne, eczema) and this has caused no issues. This is the only form of Vit C I've been able to use.

Shocking how muchReview by Karmen C.
Shocking how much I like this. I've been using it for about a week in conjunction with the Oatmeal serum and I noticed quickly how "smooth" my skin feels. The improvement in my skin texture has been quite amazing. I didn't change anything else, so it has to be these serums making the improvements. The facelift serum soaks in quickly and it takes only a drop to do my whole face. Lovely product.

Excellent product !Review by Nathalie N.
Excellent product ! I'm begining with my second bottle, and I can see the improvements on my skin. My skin tends to dehydrate a lot, whatever I put on it. (at the end of the day, especially). It is very thin and rather sensible. With this serum, my skin is really better hydrated, and it resists better to cold and hot. The freckles from the summer have almost disappeared (this automn was very sunny and we are in November). And the wrinkles around my eyes have really diminished. I noticed that when I laugh a lot, the wrinkles does not stay for such a long time as before (my skin is more supple)... I recently compared the ingredients list (I am a manica label reader, organic friendly) with a famous, very expensive brand (c...x-c you know), and my god, Karen's facelift serum is FAR BETTER !... At such a small price...
One thing I miss though : Could Karen explain how many times a day can we use it ? Personnaly, I'm glad with one application in the morning. I did not dare to try with two, because my skin is sensitive...

I love it!Review by Sonia W.
I love it! It works without making me break out! My skin is tightened and plumper after using it and I love that I'm using top of the line ingredients at a cost that won't make me break the bank!

The affordable cost means that I've started anti-aging care of my skin much younger as I can still afford to use it while I'm paying back my student loans!
