Restore Face Serum - Romi Apothecary
A facial serum for healing skin and scars
This serum is my personal favorite. It is packed full of highly nutritious botanical extracts that are known to diminish fine lines, fade acne scars, protect against environmental stress and improve overall health of the skin. It smells and feels medicinal; while all the plant constituents are working harmoniously together to beautify your skin. Safe enough for sensitive skin but also appropriate for normal to oily skin as well. It can also be used on scars and eczema elsewhere on the body with good results.
+ Rosehip seed oil + Loaded with retinol, Vitamin C and plenty of fatty acids, rosehip oil promotes skin cell growth thereby limiting the effects of aging. By doing so, this unique oil aids skin in becoming more smooth, firm and youthful by increasing the levels of collagen and elastin in the skin.

The antibacterial properties sarsaparilla contains is what makes this herb wonderful for alleviating skin infections.
