Super Serum- must have





Super Serum is one of the finest skin care products on the market today...nothing is more effective, nothing is backed by more clinical studies- it will give you the results you're looking for, and the best news is that it's 99% natural!!!!! 

Super Serum is kinda the answer to a lot of different problems all rolled into one! 

Niacinamide is the star of this serum- it's another one that will help with just about any skin problem you may have.  It helps to fight wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and it's been used to treat acne as well.  Niacinamide also helps to restore the skin's barrier function so if you have dehydrated, flakey, or sensitive skin- it's a real miracle worker after a few months. 

Vitamin C which is also good for everything- and normally the two aren't compatible but our special Vitamin C ester works beautifully in conjunction with the Niacinamide .  We use 3% magnesium ascorbyl phosphate which is equivalent to about 10% ascorbic acid, but with a more neutral pH so it can be used in conjunction with the niacinamide.

 MSM which is naturally occurring sulphur (without the smell) to help with acne, and general healing- it has the added benefit of making your skin baby smooth.

 Venuceane- it's a special extract made from deep sea algae and it's the Chuck Norris of anti-oxidants- it's tough, inexhaustable, and has more anti-oxidant action than any other substance- including green tea.  It's in there to help defend your skin against sun damage and it has some very impressive clinical results.  If you're not wearing sunblock the rays will still get to your skin- but when they get there Chuck Norris round house kicks them into oblivion.

Pumpkin Seed Extract- it protects elastin, prevents the formation of scar tissue, and stretch marks- but it's mainly in there to protect your elastin.  After our 20's our skin doesn't make any more of it, so it's really important to keep what you have.  Pumpkin seed extract is the main effective ingredient in lots of high end products- including the Strivectin line that sells for over $100 an ounce.

Green Tea Extract- loaded with polyphenols, it's another one of those super ingredients that's good for everything.

 Yes...there's a lot going on in this serum, but it all works together beautifully.  It *can* lighten skin slightly, but nothing that can't be undone with a few minutes of sun exposure.

This serum is not at all compatible with any acids- it converts the niacinamide into niacin and makes your skin turn red.  If you want to use Super Serum along with an AHA or BHA product- use the acids at night, and Super Serum in the morning.  Not suitable for pregnant women (try Mama's Helper).

I have been using this product for several months now and I can not say enough good things! I was pleased after two months but am in LOVE after 4 months. My pores are dramatically smaller (you could have pitched a small tent in mine before), the sagging around my jaw line is reduced quite a bit and my skin has a glow to it that it did not have before. Don't hesitate to buy this it now! You won't regret it!

Holy grail serum for me. This stuff is even worth the pesky import tax I’m charged by customs - it’s that good. I usually go make up free anyway because I’m lazy but even after just a couple of days of super serum my skin looked so good that I was confident to be bare faced. My skin is usually dry on my cheeks and dull everywhere but super serum has made it so so much smoother, my pores are smaller and my skin just looks healthier. I use SS on my neck and chest now too and I am so smoooooooooth! I did get a few breakouts initially but only small ones and they soon cleared up. Karen if you ever stop making this I will fly to the US and I will find you.

I found this product while searching for a Vitamin C serum that wouldn't counteract with the niacinamide in my sunscreen. I'm so glad I did! It is now an indispensable part of my morning routine. I've noticed a huge difference in the "glowiness" of my skin, and I'm happy to know it's helping protect me from the sun & city pollution!

Love this. I recently cleared up almost all of my acne, but still struggled will a dull complexion and sebaceous filaments around my nose and chin. This helped a lot. Be patient with it and ease into use. It can really dry your skin out if you're using it too much to begin with. Also be super careful when using in combination with an AHA.

Review by Sky S
When I put this on it feels like my skin is literally drinking it up, and no matter how much I put on it absorbs it really quickly and it tingles. I can tell that this serum is working more than others because of the tingling effect I get when I put it on even after other serums. I've spent a lot of time comparing products on beautypedia, and reading about what dermatologists recommend to look for in skin products, so I can tell that the serums on this website are really well formulated. It's also nice to know that I don't have to worry about any damaging chemicals, or spending my money on a formula that's 80% water or mineral oil with trace amounts of the beneficial ingredients.

Review by Mary S
I took antibiotics for acne for years and I am now regretting what its done to my health. I was scared my breakouts would could back when I stopped so I decided to find a natural remedy and this was it! My face looked a little brighter, not a huge difference, but it definitely keeps pimples away. Even if a tiny one pops up, I use the serum before bed and then it's gone when I wake up. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because it dried out my skin a little. I live in Arizona so I'm constantly applying lotion to combat the dry heat. I now apply the serum and then pair a moisturizer with it and it works perfectly. I also heard that drinking green tea may help with breakouts so I have a cup almost everyday. I have gotten compliments on my skin!

I have tried many products to no avail to deal with my sensitive, painfully acne-ridden skin. Silk Naturals products are literally the only thing that has ever made a noticeable change in my skin (besides not wearing any makeup and washing 3x a day, which is impractical). The super serum, used in the morning, made my skin noticeably less inflamed, softer, smoother, and generally comfortable. I noticed a significant difference the first day I used it. Love it.

Review by Caitlin B
I wanted to like this serum, mostly because online reviews and even the Silk Naturals site seemed to mandate that I like it. However, I used it side by side with the Awesome Sauce serum (literally: I used one product on each half of my face) for over a week, and while I saw a MAJOR improvement with Awesome Sauce, I saw no change at all with Super Serum. It didn't effect me negatively or anything. I did not get acne, redness, sensitivity, or any other side effects from this product. It just had about the same effect on my skin as a splash of water. I'm giving it 3 stars because objectively, the ingredients are fantastic, but as they say in the skincare world, your mileage may vary, and my mileage was nil.

Review by Terri G
It has been not quite two weeks since I started using this once a day, and it has quickly become one of my favorite skin care products! I know that the effects will get much better over time because the ingredients are there, but I can actually see immediate benefits as soon as I put this on my skin. It feels clean and nourishing, brightens and soothes, and gives the kind of instant gratification that helps me stick to my regimen! And thanks to the reasonable price, I don't have to skimp and can use as much as I feel my skin needs on that given day (seriously, people charge HOW MUCH for skin serum?!?). I switched my acid toners to my night routine and use this in the morning, and I really look forward to seeing that instant brightness and smoother pores. I am REALLY looking forward to what my skin will look like a month or two from now because I absolutely believe in this product!

Review by Audrey S
This is a really wonderful serum and I hope it sticks around forever! I've been using it for around 3-4 months now and it's improved my skin's texture and type phenomenally; I used to be drier than a desert and never had any oil production and now I'm actually approaching having "normal-combo" skin and that's awesome. My coloring is more even and I have less red splotchy patches, my skin looks brighter and feels firmer. Overall my skin just looks and feels amazing and none of this wonderfulness began until I started using this.

Also, it's gotten rid of a chronic milia patch on my cheek that has stuck around for years! It comes back slowly if I stop using this, but that it even takes it away temporarily is amazing! It also really helps with acne, I find that if I double down on any emerging pimples with this, it'll make them go away a bit quicker or stop them from coming to a head at all.

A+++ product, Silk Naturals! Please don't ever get rid of it!

Review by Erin R
I'm sure this is a good serum, because I've researched the ingredients are they are top shelf. However, I simply could not get past the smell. It's the niacinimide in the product that gives it the scent, as I've tried niacin containing creams before and it's the exact same odor. The texture in this serum is a little sticky, too. I would definitely give this product a retry if the scent was modified, perhaps with the additional of a beneficial essential oil.

Review by karrie A
This Serum is a true "must have". I have had brown discoloration on my face ever since pregnancy (9 years ago). I have tried everything out there I (within my budget), but it never got better, which was really quite depressing. I came across Silk Naturals and thought I would give it a try, especially since it is an affordable next option to experiment with. I have been using it for about a month now and the brown is nearly gone, what little discoloration that remains coves up easily with the Silk Naturals foundation (also a winner).
Also, I am very prone to acne, but this serum has greatly reduced the number of break outs I have been experiencing. My pores look smaller and I have noticeably less clogged pores.

Please, don't ever stop making this product, I am a customer for life!

This serum has done wonderful things for my skin. I had a terrible bout with post-birth control breakouts that lasted nearly 3 years and left me with some serious discoloration. I've been using the serum at least once a day for about 2 months and I'm seeing a serious difference in the clarity and smoothness of my skin. For me, no other serum has worked as well as this. It is a holy grail serum for sure.

I've used aboutReview by Lisa C.
I've used about 2/3rds of my bottle, so I think it's time for a review. This product is great! The serum is thick but glides easily. It sinks in pretty quickly (although it leaves my skin feeling tight, but a quick layer of moisturizer does the trick).

After a week of use, my skin started looking luminous!~ However, I started getting lazy and wasn't exfoliating as frequently as I should, so I ended up getting little pimples in places I usually don't get pimples. I'm guessing it's from using this product + not exfoliating often enough.

My only complaint is the pump bottle. Oh my gosh, the pump bottle... was there ever a case of such a fantastic product being done such a disservice by its packaging? The pump didn't seem too bad the first few times, but now I can't get ANY product out without it spurting everywhere *but* my fingertips. My desk, the sides of the bottle, my mirror... they're constantly getting coated with more product than my face probably is. It's really disappointing. I might just transfer my next bottle into a dropper bottle because this is ridiculous.

I actually kind of dread applying this because it's such a hassle to get the product onto my skin. Please find a different type of packaging for this fantastic serum!!

After 20 yearsReview by Jessica O.
After 20 years of experimenting with every product line you can imagine I had settled on a routine that, while by no means perfect, worked to keep me 90% clear for the last year. The problem is that the products were incredibly expensive and not made from the most sage ingredients. Eventually, my guilt go the better of me and I set out to find a product that would have the same results but fewer scary chemicals and I set out to try many more very expensive natural products, most of which were way too rich for my oily and clog prone skin, or they simply did not perform.
Then I found Silk Naturals and after reading the description for every single skin care product available, I settled on this and my skin has never been better. Within two weeks I saw a major improvement, and within two months my skin is good enough to go out into the world naked! My blemishes are gone, my skin tone is more even, minor scars have faded and I could not be happier.
I follow a very strict routine (micellar solution, natural gel cleanser/facial cleansing brush, spray toner, Super Serum, a "soothing gel" with aloe and seaweed, a homeopathic acne treatment gel and argan oil) and this product is the most important of them all. Thank you for this amazing serum!

This is aReview by Sarah H.
This is a one of my MUST HAVE items from Silk Naturals. I have skin that will periodically pitch a fit and Super Serum makes my blemishes heal faster, helps fade the scars from previous breakouts, evens out my skin tone, and generally does great things in treating and lessening the amount of my pimples. Try it, even my family commented on how much clearer my face looked after incorporating Super Serum into my skincare routine.
I will mention that you have to make sure not to use any other acids with this, you will have a tomato red face for a few hours. I once used my AHA Cleanser from another skin care company and then applied Super Serum and yes,a tomato red face resulted.

It's my firstReview by Sara K.
It's my first purchase on SN and quickly become my HG serum for everyday usage. It's amazing what this little bottle of serum could do to improve my skin. It doesn't lighten up my skin tone, but it keep mine stable; I'm easily tan, and Super Serum seemed to freeze my skin color so much that even the nasty sunlight of the tropical summer didn't bother me at all.

It's also wonderful on skin prone to breaking. If I had a beginning of a pimple, a squirt of super serum helps me tremendously to rear it back, and changes it into whitehead instead. No more red ugly bump!

I really wantedReview by John P.
I really wanted this to work for my skin, but unfortunately it didn't do much as i hope for my Acne prone skin. While it didn't break me out i hope it healed my acne marks and scars at least lightened them. Which did not, i did find that it healed blemishes quickly but this is just for new ones forming not old ones. The serum smells like GLUE which isn't pleasing at all. Also the serum dries up very fast I apply with a damp face and if i dont apply quickly enough it dries fast! This is for oily skin i would say as it did make my acne prone skin a bit tight after it dries. I do apply moisturiser to combat the dryness. I've tried 4 serums from SN and would say this is my least favourite when comparing to the results which were it does heal new acne blemishes. Doesn't help with
hyper pigmentation, acne scars, red marks, or evens the skin tone at all. Also got to be very careful if using AHA products so read the guidelines and information before using this potent stuff. I have finished my 1oz pump in 40 days and this is my review based on that amount of time. I was expecting a bit more results but if i were to use this more than the expected days who knows what results would show. But for the glue smell and it drying so fast i will not re-purchase. I would however check out Awesome Sauce which is my favourite yet similar to this product yet very very effective!

I have neverReview by Kaitlyn C.
I have never in my life used a product like this. Super Serum delivers what it promises on every level. I purchased a sample thinking it probably wouldn't do anything for my confused skin (dry neck, jaw and cheeks, oily t-zone, redness around corners of nose, repeated blemishes on chin area that I could never seem to control) but boy was I in for a surprise. I have been using ONE DROP in my moisturiser once a day (now in the evening as well) for only ONE WEEK so far and I can't believe the difference! Normalised skin! NO new blemishes and existing ones as well as scars are fading and healing rapidly. Dark under eye circles are reduced, redness around nose is reduced,I have hydrated cheeks, shrunken pores and now my t-zone is barely oily at all. My skin looks younger, fresh, dewy (not oily), evenly toned and feels amazingly smooth and soft. HG product. Will be telling everyone I know! I umm'ed and ahh'ed about this product for a year - do yourself a favour and at least order a sample ASAP!

Super Serum isReview by Nadine K.
Super Serum is my #1 product from Silk Naturals. I have oily skin prone to acne and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. I apply Super Serum to my entire face nightly in conjunction with a Rx topical retinoid.

I value Super Serum for its anti-inflammatory and wound-healing properties. Besides applying it as an all-over facial hydrator, I use it as a spot treatment as needed. When pimples have burst and bled, I squirt Super Serum on a cotton pad and apply pressure. I also use Super Serum on ravaged cuticles. It helps heal my compromised skin more quickly than if I left it untreated or if I smeared on an occlusive ointment. Sometimes it diminishes active pimples but not reliably.

Super Serum has not lightened my skin overall nor has it faded my persistent hyperpigmentation, but nothing ever has.

Since I'm careful not to use Super Serum in the presence of AHA/BHA, it doesn't irritate my skin or turn it red. It's quickly absorbed and leaves my face feeling smooth and not the slightest bit greasy. It has a subtle tangy scent that's unobtrusive.

Unless rave reviews on the forum for other serums convince me otherwise, I will probably re-purchase Super Serum.

This is goodReview by Audris T.
This is good stuff. Great as a daytime serum for some additional sun protection and anti-oxidant power and while several people might find it too strong, it works for my combi skin. This gets absorbed very quickly by my face and neck, as well as decollete. Good for dealing with pimples/ acne as well. I sometimes use this as a night serum when I'm having any occasional breakouts and the nefarious bumps are noticeably smaller and less inflamed the next morning.

If there's 1 absolute favourite serum I have to vote for on SN, this is my choice.

I may updateReview by Anne P.
I may update this review later. Anyways, to control my acne I have been using a 2.5% bp solution at night and moisturizer on top of that. I cannot use bp during the day because twice daily application is too drying for my skin. I like using this during the day because unlike most anti-acne products it increases resistance to sun burning rather than the other way around. During the last several weeks my break outs have been smaller.

I have 'normal'Review by Tracey S.
I have 'normal' skin with regards oiliness/dryness, and get the odd monthly hormone related breakout, plus as most 35 year olds do I have some fine lines around my eyes. I also have dermal melasma which means I have patches of uneven skin tone in the wierdest places all over my face.

I can't put my finger on exactly what Super Serum has done, but my skin just overall looks better; it works brilliantly under my regular liquid sunscreen during the day to keep my skin hydrated and is often enough on its own at night (but layers no problem under the Firming Moisturiser for extra nourishment if neeed).

For those of you who are thinking about buying it - GET IT NOW, you won't regret it & your skin will thank you (NB - it's a funny brown colour when you dispense it into your hand so don't panic and think it's gone off or a bad batch). :-)
