Nothing was more important to me in the activist method than this step, I could *heart eyes* over this serum all day! It makes my face feel so hydrated - I recently moved to a higher elevation & it’s made a huge difference to my skin!
The Active Hydration serum is my absolute favorite! If I were only allowed to keep one product from this line on hand, this would be it! Came across Activist Skincare late 2019 when my face was horribly dry no matter how much moisturizer I seemed to use. I emailed the company about suggestions and not only was Allison wonderful about answering my questions but the products she recommended absolutely saved my skin that winter.
I love this water based formula for my dry skin. It's lightweight and really soakes into my skin. Its perfect for hot weather. I love that the ingredients are clean and come in a sustainable glass bottle. It's a great addition to my skincare routine.
I tried the sample size of this and decided to purchase the full size bottle. I never write reviews, but this stuff is awesome that I had to share my opinion. First off, it’s super high quality ingredients and they’re good for you. Second, the glass bottle is great for sustainability and the fact you can repurchase a refillable pouch is fantastic! The product itself is very runny. I drop a couple of drops on my face and rub all over. It absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave a sticky/tacky residue. The smell isn’t overwhelming either. I have sensitive, acne prone, oily skin and I thought this would break me out, but it’s actually helped and I haven’t had one breakout yet. I love, love, love this product!
I love this stuff! The scent is amazing--not too strong to make me sneeze (like most perfumes), but enough too make you want to breathe it in. In the future, I could see myself taking a little bottle on the go during a hot day spent outside!
I just love this stuff. I was worried that my skin wouldn’t agree with it but I tried it anyway and my skin has never felt better. I feel like my skin is so smooth once I use this. This combined with the hydrating oil is perfection for a dewy look without being oily.
