Weightless Hydration for Spring
Most of us still want some extra hydration throughout the warmer months, but without the additional weight. This affordable serum is an easy choice.
Nordic Boost Facial Serum from Cocoon Apothecary
Wife and husband duo Jessica and Lane Burman are the creators of Cocoon Apothecary, an uber-natural line of skin and body care. based in Kitchener, Ontario. They are passionate about quality natural ingredients and enchanted by floral and botanical scents. The result is a range of decadent products that help you recreate a spa experience at home.
Their Nordic Boost Facial Serum is Cocoon Apothecary's first water-based product and we are thoroughly impressed by its effectiveness.
Who It's For
Pretty much everyone! If you're dry, use it under your moisturizer for an extra boost. It's also common for oily skin to become dehydrated - use this serum on its own to maintain hydration without causing breakouts.
Why It's Special
This serum is all about keeping skin hydrated. Hyaluronic acid, Iceland moss, polypody fern, and peat moss work together to soften, plump, and adhere water to the skin.
How To Use It
Apply several drops to face, neck, and decolletage morning and night after cleansing, and before moisturizing (or skip the moisturizer if you're oily).
What to Pair It With
Dry types will love this with Cocoon Apothecary's Petal Purity Milk Cleanser, Rosey Cheeks moisturizer, and Reflector sunscreen. Oily/combo folks can skip the moisturizer and go with their lighter Sweet Orange Gel Cleanser, plus Consonant's Perfect Sunscreen.
