The Alluring Alchemist is all about crafting beautiful skincare creations that are based in ritual and intention. Each ingredient is selected with care, most of which are organic and / or wild harvested.
The serums are cold infused with flowers and herbs over six weeks, charged under the full moon, and blessed with Reiki energy by a Reiki master.
This serum is…
Watermelon Seed Oil*
Red Raspberry Seed Oil*
Neroli Essential Oil*
Lavender Essential Oil*
What drew me to this serum was the watermelon seed oil, which I’ve used before and absolutely loved. It’s incredibly anti-inflammatory, and I find it gives my skin a healthy, clear glow. But most importantly (for me), is that it does reduce redness, which is key to making my skin look it’s best.
Scent - There is a light floral scent (thanks to the neroli and lavender) that I couldn’t get enough of. Most of my skincare doesn’t have a scent so it was so nice to use a serum that was so beautifully scented without being overpowering! It made for a much more sensory experience.
Texture - I don’t know how Liz does it, but all of her oil based serums are well…oil based, so they have that oil texture, but they quickly sink into the skin just like a serum. They feel light on the skin, but they’re still really nourishing.
Efficacy - This serum is not targeted towards a specific skin type, but my dry, sensitive, and acne prone skin really loved it. I didn’t notice much of a difference with my acne (it’s really bad this time of year so I actually have to reach for acne treatments), but I did notice my skin was so much more glowy, and there was a lot less redness that came back right after I stopped using this serum. So clearly it works really well for reducing inflammation and brightening the skin. I think in the future I’d like to pair this serum with one for acne to get the best of both worlds (for me)!
Sustainability - Liz does such a great job crafting sustainable products. They’re packaged in glass, the ingredients are almost all organic, and if they’re not organic they’re wildcrafted. Bonus: she uses recycled and recyclable packing materials. It really doesn’t get any better! I even plan on reusing this serum bottle for my own handmade creations!
