Serums are made to nourish, protect, and hydrate skin.  They contain active ingredients that will penetrate the skin's surface to treat skin-specific issues like acne, discoloration, dullness, or fine lines.  Our BALANCE face serum is designed to tackle concerns of hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone.
