Smooth the appearance of fine lines, boost radiance and improve texture with SBC Skincare’s Bakuchiol Smoothing Serum. This silky, lightweight formula spreads smoothly over your skin and absorbs effortlessly to leave your skin feeling wonderfully smooth and looking perfectly radiant.

The Details

Bakuchiol is a natural retinol alternative, proven to help target the appearance of ageing whilst brightening and smoothing skin without any irritation. 1% Bakuchiol blends with Lactic Acid and Willow Bark to provide gentle exfoliation to help even texture, minimise fine lines and enhance serum absorption, and therefore effectiveness.

Boosted with Hyaluronic Acid, Rosehip Oil and Squalane, this serum then infuses skin with deep hydration for a plump, healthy-looking complexion. Don't just take our word for it – the results speak for themselves! In a 4-week study of 120 people, 98% agreed it didn't cause irritation, and 94% agreed that skin feels and looks smoother.

Best of all, this vegan-friendly serum is suitable for all skin types – even sensitive. It does not cause any sun sensitivity, so can be used in both the morning and evening and is safe to use during pregnancy.

Hyaluronic Acid - deeply hydrates skin cells and defends against moisture loss to leave you with beautiful plump, smooth, youthful looking skin.

White Willow - naturally rich in Salicin, which Salicylic Acid derives from, to help break down dead skin build-up and purify pores, even out skin tone and help smooth the appearance of fine lines.

Reaction - Ouch!

I tried this as I felt my combination skin needed a bit of boost. OMG, I have never had such a bad reaction to a skincare product. I used it this morning and my husband later noticed that I looked a bit flushed but a couple of hours later my skin felt sore and tight and felt like it was on fire. I immediately washed my face and put on some lavender and aloe vera gel mix to soothe. Now my face, neck and decollete are bright red and sore and I'm fact feel like they are throbbing. I am a huge fan of SBC and this won't put me off buying my usual gels and body products, but I am standing back from skincare for the time being.

Very bad reaction

I bought this as I've used sbc serums before with no issues. I don't have sensitive skin, the only time I've had this reaction is when I used a retinol a few years ago. As this is a retinol alternative, I assume there must be something in it to cause this burning and very bad reaction. I've used sbc for years and love their products usually but my face and neck are so sore I will steer clear of this product. I've put a thick layer of collagen gel on to cool it down.

Excellent product

A lovely serum that goes well under SBC collagen cream. Leaves the skin soft and fresh.

New for me

For a serum this is excellent value for money it is so smooth and creamy and smells lovely. I put it under either elemis or gatineau and doesn't cause roll off. My skin soaks it in and it isn't shiny.
