Review: Grown Botanical Beauty Facial Serum

Grown Botanical Skincare is a fairly new natural organic brand to me, so when a bottle of Grown Facial Serum arrived at my desk I was intrigued to see what it is like. 

Grown is Australian made and owned and their philosophy is 'beautiful healthy looking skin comes from a profound understanding of nature's power.'
Grown Facial Serum (25ml A$59) is a certified organic serum formulated using a concoction of antioxidants, vitamins, essential fatty acids and natural extracts (sweet almond oil, macadamia oil, jojoba seed oil, cranberry seed oil and rice bran). The core ingredients are Borogo to help boost hydration, Rosehip and Buckthorn Berry to support the skin's elasticity, nourish and moisturise the skin. It claims to help restore elasticity, reduce fines lines, firm, soften and smooth skin while simultaneously hydrate and protect the skin from premature aging. 
 I have been using Grown Facial Serum once per night on my face and décolletage after toning my skin and before applying moisturiser. Applying serum is an important step of my skin regime as it is packed full of antioxidants and vitamins which help improve the skin texture and prolong the aging process. I apply a few drops from the pipette to my fingertips and lightly tap the serum onto my skin. Grown Facial Serum is lightweight and you only need about 2-3 drops to apply on the face and décolletage.

The scent is relatively strong with a calming botanical scent which I find soothes my senses. I don't have any issues with the scent as it is a very pleasant scent which I assume originates from the mixture of natural extracts formulated in this serum.

My skin feels instantly hydrated, smooth and relaxed. I love the fact that Grown Facial Serum contains a plethora of natural ingredients to help boost hydration and nourish my skin. The serum does not leave my skin feeling congested or greasy, however, the serum does take awhile to absorb completely through the skin. This is the reason why I only use Grown Facial Serum as a night treatment to help restore and nourish the skin during my beauty sleep.
 Which serums are you currently lusting after?
