Some observations and comments:
The serum is absorbed quickly and leaves a silky skin feeling.
As this is an anhydrous product, it is preservative-free and its shelf-life depends on the expiry date of its components.
A divine fragrance due to the blend of vanilla, cinnamon and blackcurrants is the additional aesthetic bonus to the main purpose of the finished product.
THIS IS WHAT I AM CALLING “THE SWIFT SKIN CARE”: the serum can be used day and night (so, “two-in-one product”) but you have to use the refined grape seed oil as otherwise it will oxidize quickly in daylight. In case you use non-refined grape seed oil in order to benefit from all the nice properties of the oil, then use the product as a night care only.
