Have you seen those commercials where wrinkly clothes simply need a spritz of Wrinkle Release and suddenly they're smooth without a single crease to be found?
Fresh Chemistry's Wrinkle Release Peptide Serum follows the same theme, targeting fine lines and wrinkles with a potent mix of hyaluronic acid, olive oil, Cacay nut oil, peptides, lavender oil and marine elixir.
I was sent Fresh Chemistry's Wrinkle Release with Marine Plus ($75). Wrinkle Release is also sold without the Marine Plus ($62.)
The larger bottle contains the serum base, which is a blend of 3 kinds of olive oil, hyaluronic acid and mica. It's definitely sparkly, and as someone with combination skin, I was worried that the shimmer would add to my shine.
Step 2, 3 and 4 all come separated in their own glass vials. You add them to the base, shake it up and then it's ready for use. Once mixed, it's best to use this serum up within 4 weeks.
I personally love lavender, and this serum is lightly scented. The scent fades once the serum is applied to your face. But this lavender oil is present for more than just scent and stress-relief.
Lavender oil has known benefits of reducing wrinkles, fighting acne, and soothing skin.
This serum applies so smooth, I swore it had dimethicone in it. But it doesn't. I've never had a serum feel so amazing on my skin like this.
This serum is not greasy either, despite the cacay and olive oils. It quickly absorbed into my skin, making it feel supple and soft almost immediately.
My worries about the shimmer quickly went away, as the mica creates a blurring effect when applied versus looking like glitter. Flaws appear minimized upon application because of the magic of this blurring effect.
So is it just an optical illusion? Did my wrinkles really go away?
Wrinkles never go away friends. However this serum packs an ultra moisturizing punch that all skin needs. There were days I even went without adding a moisturizer because this serum did the work of two products.
Healthy, hydrated skin + hyaluronic acid lessens how deep wrinkles look, while the blurring from the mica makes you look refreshed and youthful.
I personally loved this serum and found myself saving it for use when I knew I'd be taking pictures or social gatherings - basically when I wanted people to remark on how great I looked. :)

A Girl's Gotta Spa! roll on perfumes have become increasingly popular since we expanded our bath and body line two years ago to include them.
Our latest fragrance, Known, is coming at a time when things really feel mostly... unknown.
We began crowdsourcing last Fall to find out which scents people were loving lately, and rose overwhelmingly topped the list.
If you're a customer of our lovely products, you know we usually like to keep the citrus tie-in throughout each product. However, as with our Synergy Himalayan Salt Scrub, we decided to forgo that with this perfume.
Known Rollerball Perfume
Top note: Wild Rose
Heart notes: Black Currant, Tea Rose
Base notes: Green Angelica, Papyrus
A Girl’s Gotta Spa! uses only pure essential oils, phthalate-free oils and grapeseed oil to bring you a roll on perfume that is vegan, clean and Leaping Bunny certified cruelty free. No parabens, no alcohol, no petrochemicals.
Naming the Perfume
It's always fun to explain to you my stream of thought when naming A Girl's Gotta Spa! products. This one stumped me for a while, though!
Second, I like to choose names that inspire, encourage and uplift. So as you may have guessed, the names don't typically describe the notes in the scent.
It took me about 2 months to finally land on Known.
What Does Known Mean?
Since our launch point is a rose fragrance, I thought about all aspects of this flower. I finally asked myself - what does a rose represent to most people?
What does it mean to be loved? To me, it means to care for someone so deeply and unconditionally, irregardless of their flaws.
To Be Loved is to be Known
Here's the thing - to be loved doesn't always have to mean someone loving you. It can absolutely also include YOU loving YOU. It's a self-love party up in here!
I hope you will love Known as much as I do. Find it on our webstore: Known Rollerball Perfume
