Illumino Youth Serum -  30mL

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

lllumino Youth Serum boasts a full 30 mL of the highest quality, 100% Certified-Organic, first cold-pressed Prickly Pear Seed Oil, and a hint of organic Neroli and Geranium Oils. Prickly Pear Seed Oil is one of the rarest, most luxurious and visibly effective skincare 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%)  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
  • Leaves skin feeling hydrated and nourished  
  • 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
  • Geranium oil improves overall skin health and balances sebum production.

We source this stunning quality, certified organic prickly pear seed oil in fresh, small batches by working directly with fair-trade co-operatives of Berber families in rural Morocco. This precious oil is from the seeds, and not to be confused with cheaper macerated oils or the oil from the prickly pear fruit. 

 

 

Use morning and night on its own, or before your moisturiser. Just 4-6 drops are required as a little goes a long way. Ensure skin is clean and slightly moist and gently press the oil into your face and neck, being careful to never drag your skin downwards. Ilumino can be used on its own or layered with a moisturiser. You may 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 incredibly effective this 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 one 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*.

 

* DENOTES CERTIFIED ORGANIC

Miracle in a Bottle!

This is one of those skincare products that once you try you cannot live without. I have young skin (24) but have always had issues with hypersensitivity and redness this product has helped with evening out my skin tone and managing sensitivity. I use the Prickly Pear Oil along with a Konaj Sponge twice per day and can honestly say my skin has never looked or felt better. The customer service is always second to none and shipping quick also. Thank you Tanya for making such a wonderful product!

Beautiful product from a beautiful business

I initially purchased prickly pear seed oil to help with dark under eye circles. Not only does it help significantly with those, I've also noticed a huge improvement in my overall complexion & my blemishes are slowly starting to disappear! On top of the product itself, Tanya is so lovely & her dedication to providing the best products as well as customer experience is so refreshing. Thank you so much Tanya! ❤
