Do you want glowing clear firm skin?

The Potion Serum @herbandflora is phenomenal. Just after a few uses , you can start seeing a difference. I've been using this for a few months now and my skin feels amazing. Much firmer and way tighter. Ever since I hit my 40's, my skin has changed so much. I even developed Roseaca and redness. This serum has has worked wonders on my skin. 😍

This product has made my skin glow up in ways it never has before.

This product has made my skin glow up in ways it never has before. My skin feels hydrated and smooth and never dry! This product is perfect for daytime and night time use. The texture is airy but still so soft to the touch.

The only serum you need!

I use this everyday! Am and Pm to keep my skin hydrated and youthful. I’m on my 3rd refill and I will use this product forever! 10/10 recommend

Wonderful !

I love this light lotion! It dries down quickly and leaves a lovely finish to the skin. I've tried it with various other things under or over it and it doesn't pill. I've bought so many things that pill if I try to combine them with other things, I'm delighted to find something that plays nicely with others. It can be used as a daytime moisturizer with sunscreen and/or makeup or at night, alone or with a heavy cream over it. Being refillable is a great bonus!

Lightweight and Hydrating

I have been using this serum for the past 2 months and I absolutely LOVE it. I have combination skin and have always struggled with finding a serum that is moisturizing enough for my dry spots without leaving me feeling super oily. THIS SERUM DOES IT ALL. It's super hydrating but feels extremely lightweight and refreshing when applied. It has a faint, clean scent which I love. Since I started using this serum, I've noticed less redness and fewer acne flare ups. Using this serum has been the highlight of my nightly skincare routine. Can't say enough good things!!
