i've heard oils are condogemic - is your product going to clog my pores?
most oils are condogemic. however, the formulation and the quality of the ingredients used are the important factors in how the oil functions. that's why we choose only the best ingredients and work with highly skilled formulators to produce products that are formulated for your skin, that dont clog your pores. for example, our coconut oil is high quality and organic.
your product has a scent but you say it is fragrance free?

your product should last about 6-8 weeks with regular use. you should see results within 4 weeks (however, pigmentation can be a longer process).
how are your ingredients sourced and are they organic?
some of our ingredients are organic. the majority of our ingredients are certified to international standards. all our products are vegan and cruelty free.
a lot of our oils and other natural ingredients are from africa, but ingredients like hyaluronic acid are from abroad.
all ingredients are high quality and traceable back to the farmer.
do you use essential oils?
we use high quality essential oils in some of our products - but in quantities less than 0.25% total. this is well below recommended guidelines and safe.
you say your product is clean but some contain alcohols?
we use cosmos-certified alcohols derived from plants and in extremely small quantities (less than 0,25% of a product if used).
after applying your serum, squeeze it out, rub it in and let it sink in.

save our skin (sos) | peach + aloe aha/bha exfoliator.
Using this twice a week has been phenomenal thanks to its gentle approach. My skin is clearer and smoother but not dried out or sensitive (as using an exfoliator would do). If I notice a pimple starting to form I simply dab a small amount on that area and in a night or two it's all sorted out! Both my skin and I love this product.
This product is strong though so I would recommend following the instructions of using once or twice a week only.
I’ve been loving it , it absorbs immediately and doesn’t leave any rough feeling !
I am so happy to have finally found a serum that truly works. I use it 2 - 3 times a week and have seen a noticeable difference to my skin. So happy! Thank you Lelive!
I like this project generally, but I do find when I used it I often have a couple of small whiteheads the next day.
I have incoparted this exfoliator into my skin-care routine.I had been looking for one that wouldn’t have those small balls in it because I noticied it would leave marks and roughness on my skin. This exfoliator is amazing because it just taps into the skin and absorbs seemlessly into the skin. I have incorporated so far 3 times. I did notice the darkness around my mouth getting better. However I did have a slight reaction. I would recommend that you add it once a week in your routine especially if you have sensative skin. Change can be stressful on the skin. All in all the product is overall good and the consistency is great so it won’t drip on everything.
