Cosdna ingredients analysis for Clarifying Glow Serum™: http://www.cosdna.com/eng/cosmetic_315d245154.html
Instructions for use: To get the best out of the glow serum it is best to apply right after your hydrating toner step while skin is still damp. It is so important with skincare to be consistent! To get the best results I recommend to use the serum twice a day for at least 28 days in a row. That recommendation goes for all kind of skincare products not just this serum. Our skin need at least 28 days to turnover. Please don’t expect overnight miracle. Especially with acne, patience and consistent are the key.
Steps: Cleanser, acid toner, pH dependent treatment if use (acid, vitamin C etc.), wait time if use treatment product, hydrating toner, clarifying glow serum, additional serum if desired, facial oil, sunscreen (for day time)

Aloe Barbadensis Juice and Rose hydrosol: used for their soothing properties.
Centella Asiatica: You know me: I have a soft spot for Centella. So of course I had to include it. Centella has been used for a long time to help heal wounds and treat eczema. Studies have shown that the main constituents of Centella- Asiatic acid, madecassic acid, and asiaticoside- help increase collagen production and improve skin strength.
Licorice: soothing, anti-irritant, anti-inflammatory. Contains liquiritin and isoliquertine so it might help brighten the skin.
Willow Bark Extract: antiseptic, astringent, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial. It contains natural salicylic acid-like properties so you can get the benefits of BHA without the irritation. It has gentle exfoliation properties to help skin cell turnover.
Niacinamide: Niacinamide is the active form of vitamin B3. It has been shown to be safe and non-irritating, help stimulate collagen synthesis, and reduce the damage of aged and photodamaged skin.
N-acetylglucosamine: It’s found in our skin. It helps increase collagen production, and increases moisture and elasticity of the skin. It also has been shown to speed up wound healing. Studies have shown that when NAG is combined with niacinamide, it will increase its ability to reduce hyperpigmentation. Studies also show that it can help increase the production of hyaluronic acid in our skin, thereby improving skin hydration. NAG has exfoliating properties similar to AHA and BHA but without the irritation so it’s good for sensitive and rosacea skin.
Squalane oil: Another love of mine. Super lightweight yet stable oil. Naturally found in our skin’s sebum, it lubricates and protects our skin.
Daisy Flower Extract: helps even out skin tone, reduces dark spots, anti-inflammatory.
Arctostaphylos Uva Ursi Leaf Extract: astringent, skin lightening, antibacterial, antioxidant.
Morus Nigra Leaf Extract: skin lightening, possible inhibits melanin production.

Alpha Arbutin: helps block epidermal melanin synthesis, skin lightener, evens skin tone on all skin types, helps minimizes liver spots, much safer than hydroquinone.
Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract: anti inflammatory, cell regenerating.
Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract: anti inflammatory, antioxidants, protects against UVB damage.
Sea buckthorn oil: It’s non-staining despite the bright orange color! It scavenges for free radicals and helps cells regenerate. Lots of antioxidant properties that help fight wrinkles and soothe irritated skin.
Rosehip seed CO2: high in linoleic acid and alpha-linolenic acid, which is great for acne. Helps cells regenerate and heals scars.
Cucumis sativus seed oil: well, you know cucumber is great for skin! Need I say more? Lots of phytosterols help our skin strengthen its barrier. Helps revitalize skin; great for acne, eczema, psoriasis…
Pelargonium graveolens oil: excellent for congested, oily, combination skin. It helps balance gland secretion. It also helps tone and tighten skin tissue. Can help treat dermatitis, eczema, and acne. It has wound healing abilities with cell regenerating properties. Don’t you love the scent of geranium? It’s one of the top oils for treating depression, soothing anxiety, reducing stress, helping improve your self-esteem and balancing your moods. May help in balancing your hormones also.
Sodium Levulinate, Sodium Anisate: Skin conditioning and preservatives properties.
Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate: skin conditioning.
- My serum does contain honeysuckle. Honeysuckle does contain chemicals that are similar to synthetic parabens; their molecular structures are similar to each other. I’m not making any claims or statements here. You just have to decide for yourself. But keep in mind that many plants including licorice, black cohost, red clover,chasteberry, ginseng etc. do have some estrogenic activities. Also, many studies have shown that parabens are safe. I chose not to use products containing synthetic parabens because I noticed my skin tends to be irritated when I use them. It itches and becomes red.
- With the continuous use of my serum, I have less breakouts now. The hormonal ones are smaller in size, not as red and angry as before. The spots go away faster. They dry up and fall off on their own. I don’t have to squeeze them lol. My overall skin tone is much brighter. My sunspots are lighter. As with any skincare products, what works for me might not work for you. We are all unique! I put a lot of thought into the formulation of this serum and went through so many trials and errors. I truly hope it works for you!
