Jenny Wu, the brains behind Geeky Posh, recently published a review of our Custom Serum Duo on her blog. Her post is chock full of great information, and you should check it out if you are wondering how our customization process might work for you!

“Skincare by nature is very personal. Luckily there are brands out there that recognize and respect the individuality of our skin and understand that there’s no one-solution-fits-all product.”

Jenny first reviews our Custom Hyaluronic Acid Serum. After filling out our skin type assessment, we concluded that her unique skin goals were to brighten, hydrate, and soothe. To address these needs, we included vitamin C, niacinamide, and licorice root extract in her formula.

“My skin drinks this up instantly … I’ve noticed that my skin feels more plump and my makeup goes on smoother. For me, this serum does a wonderful job of hydrating my skin while providing some anti-aging and anti-oxidant benefits.”

Jenny’s Custom Precious Oils Serum includes bisabolol, CoQ10, and our wonderful antioxidant cocktail. These ingredients really help boost this oil’s skin protecting and soothing properties. Jenny mentions that she always wakes up with a glow the next morning after using this serum!


No, I’ve never used a face oil in the morning, and yes I love using it that much.

“Over time, I’ve noticed that some of the fine lines on my cheeks were no longer visible and my skin feels more balanced. It’s now my favorite step of my skincare routine, to the point where I even use this in the morning. No, I’ve never used a face oil in the morning, and yes I love using it that much.”

Jenny’s review is so detailed and knowledgeable, and we really appreciated her including swatches of our serums on her hands to show how they look immediately after applied and once absorbed into the skin. Below, our Precious Oils Serum:



“Green and clean (not a must have for me personally but I respect it)? Check. High quality ingredients? Check. Giving back to the community? Check. They also have amazing customer service. From creating your unique products by hand in single batches to offering reformulations if your product doesn’t work, you feel like you’re building a personal relationship with the brand."

While Jenny did enjoy her first custom formulation of her Hyaluronic Acid Serum, it didn’t quite work for her as well as she would have hoped. After she reached out to us, we reformulated it for her with more antioxidants and 10% niacinamide. We are so excited to see how her new Custom Hyaluronic Acid Serum works for her, and we will update you with her latest review!
