Illumino Youth Serum -  30mL

Brightening serum to help boost skin's radiance & even tone. 

lllumino Youth Serum boasts the highest quality, 100% Certified-Organic, first cold-pressed Prickly Pear Seed Oil. We work directly with fair-trade co-operatives in rural Morocco to bring this top quality prickly pear seed oil to you in fresh, small-batches. Prickly Pear Seed Oil is one of the rarest, most luxurious and powerful raw oils in the natural beauty world. 

Prickly pear seed oil skin benefits include:

  • Remarkably lightweight, sinking into skin immediately
  • High concentration of the super antioxidant Betalains, which help in combating the appearance of wrinkles and signs of ageing
  • Incredible amount of skin-softening vitamin E - more than any other beauty oil, and 150% more than Argan oil
  • Packed with (approx. 60%) of Linoleic Acid, an essential fatty acid that is proven to lighten sun-induced hyperpigmentation and help balance the skin of acne sufferers
  • Helps soothe inflammation 
  • Boosts cellular turnover  
  • Stimulates collagen production
  • Rich in vitamin K which helps even skin tone and reduce dark circles under eyes.

Skin Benefits of Neroli & Geranium oils:

  • Neroli essential oil has a toning effect that helps skin look more vibrant while softening  the appearance of wrinkles and pores. Neroli is very gentle and non-irritating, so even sensitive skin should enjoy its skin benefits.  
  • Geranium oil improves overall skin health and balances sebum production
  • Both Neroli and Geranium essential oils have a lovely uplifting scent which plays into the 'lightness' and ‘skin-brightening’ effects of this divine prickly pear seed face oil.

Illumino Youth Serum won the Editor’s Choice Award in the coveted Beauty Shortlist 2018 Awards, which saw thousands of products from all around the world entered. 

Use morning and night on its own, or before your moisturiser. Just 4-6 drops are required, ensure skin is clean and damp and gently press the oil into your face and neck, being careful to never drag your skin downwards. Can be used on its own or layer with a moisturiser. You can also add a drop or two to your foundation for a subtle glow, or use it as a treatment for dry hair ends and nail cuticles.  You’ll be truly amazed at how gentle, yet highly effective this beauty beauty serum is! 

Easily absorbed, this age-defying facial oil is rich in amino acids, essential fatty acids, vitamin E, anti-oxidants and vitamin K. Our Prickly Pear Seed Oil is of the highest quality, first cold-pressed, Organic and sourced ethically from a co-op in rural Morocco. This valuable oil from the seeds is not to be mistaken for the cheaper macerated extracts of the flowers or fruits of the Prickly Pear cactus.

Also referred to as Barbary fig, Prickly Pear fruits contain about 150-300 seeds each on average. The seeds are tiny and only contain about 5% oil, so it takes an incredible 30 kilograms of Prickly Pear seeds, or 8 tonnes of fruit before the seeds are extracted, to produce just 1 litre of oil. As such, it is one of (if not THE) most expensive raw seed oils in the beauty world.

Prickly Pear Seed Oil is prized as an incredible skincare oil and offers benefits for just about anybody, regardless of their skin concerns. Being high in linoleic acid, it is deeply nourishing and enjoyed by mature skin. However, it is a 0 on the comedogenic scale (meaning it should not clog pores), so it is also an option for those struggling with acne or combination skin.

Although richer in weight than Argan Oil, Prickly Pear Seed oil is absorbed easily by the skin - almost immediately! - and will not leave a greasy residue, leaving skin silky-soft and truly nourished.

Neroli essential oil is valued for its ability to regenerate the skin cells and brighten skin. Meanwhile, Geranium essential oil helps to balance sebum and encourage cellular turnover. 

 Illumino Youth Serum is an exclusive offering, available in small numbers with the Prickly Pear Seed Oil sent over in small, fresh orders from our partners in Morocco.


What does it smell like?

Prickly Pear Seed Oil is known to have a characteristic scent, much like fresh hay. However, with the addition of the delicate floral notes of organic Neroli and Geranium, Illumino’s scent is uplifting and refreshing, with undertones of Prickly Pear Seed.


Full ingredient list:

Opuntia ficus indica (Prickly Pear) Seed Oil*, Citrus Aurantium (Neroli) Oil*, Pelargonium Graveolens (Geranium) Oil*.

Absorbs into skin fast, great under makeup!

This serum is an absolute lifesaver! I've been using it daily for about 2 weeks now and I've noticed my skin is absolutely glowing and feels soft and smooth. I used to have mild acne on my forehead, however, since I've started using Illumino it's completely cleared up and even helped get rid of some of my scarring. I've even noticed that my undereye dark circles have brightened since I've started using Illumino. I can't recommend this product enough!

Illumino Youth Serum & Atonement Superfood Masque

It has been 2 weeks since I started using these beautiful products and I couldn’t be happier. My skin is nourished, firm and glowing. I have always struggled to keep my skin hydrated in winter. Illumino is a master at keeping my skin moist and radiant. Atonement is so beautifully balanced. My skin feels thoroughly clean yet luxuriously smooth and supple. Thank you Indagare!
