    The Ultimate Beauty Oil for Hydration, Suppleness, Radiance & more

    Illumino Youth Serum is an extraordinary facial oil: phenomenally potent, yet gentle enough for all skin types, including those with sensitivities.

    Harnessing the best quality certified-organic prickly pear seed oil and neroli's incredible anti-ageing and radiance-inducing powers, it sinks in beautifully, leaving skin brighter, softer, plumper and super hydrated.

    Skin benefits include:

    • Packed with betalains – super anti-oxidants that combat the formation of wrinkles.
    • Rich in vitamin E, which moisturises and softens skin.
    • It has high levels of linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid that lightens hyperpigmentation and balances the skin of acne sufferers.
    • Soothes inflammation and calms redness.
    • Boosts cellular turnover for a more youthful appearance.
    • Stimulates collagen production to restore skin's elasticity.
    • It contains vitamin K, which helps to even skin tone and reduce hyperpigmentation and dark circles under the eyes.
    • Illumino Youth Serum contains neroli with vitamin C, which helps to firm and brighten skin.

    We've used the best quality, certified-organic prickly pear seed oil in this luxe serum. Then we’ve amplified its magical healthy skin powers by adding neroli to refresh, tighten and brighten skin tone for noticeable vibrancy, as well as geranium to balance skin. The result is a transformative, nutrient-packed facial oil that will bring a new dimension to your skincare.

      The critical difference with Indagare prickly pear seed oil – how we source this magical oil:
      We source only the highest quality, certified organic prickly pear seed oil in small batches to ensure it's always beautifully fresh and bursting with vitamins and essential fatty acids. To source this rare and precious oil, we work directly with fair-trade co-operatives of Berber families in rural Morocco. We think it's essential these communities are paid fairly for their work and hope you do, too. It's very labour-intensive work, as they have to painstakingly extract every tiny individual seed from each prickly pear - more than 30 hours is required to pick enough seeds to make just one litre! But, the seeds are where the magic comes from. Some other companies use the entire pear rather than just the nutrient-rich seeds, or macerated oils. The resulting oil may be cheaper, but the difference is worlds apart. Indagare's Illumino Youth Serum only uses oil from the prickly pear seed and the results speak for themselves.

    • Directions


      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 never to 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! 

      More Info & Ingredients

      Easily absorbed, this age-defying facial oil is rich in amino acids, essential fatty acids, vitamin E, antioxidants 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 bursting with skin-brightening and firming Vitamin C and 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.

      Amazing results within 48 hours

      I bought organic prickly pear seed oil after querying products for my skin and ongoing rosacea on my face. This oil was recommended. I have used multiple products and that includes medication from docotrs. Within 24 hours my skin had reduced inflammation, redness ans wasn't sore. It felt great and I looked different. I actually was shocked and will not be using anything else again. Amazing and I would recommend anything else !

      The only product you need

      I've been using Indagare Illumino Youth Serum for about 4 months and from the very first application my skin was completely transformed. The following morning, I could immediately see that this product had cured my uneven skin tone and plumped my skin overnight, only using four or five drops! I now have permanently smooth & glowing skin, all thanks to this one little product. It's the only beauty product I've purchased that I am convinced will become a necessary staple in my daily routine as you don't really need anything else. So happy I stumbled upon this amazing transformative face oil!

      The best!

      I just purchased my 3rd bottle and have been using this oil, every night, since October last year. It is, hands down, the best oil I have ever used. I am a self confessed beauty addict. If you name it, I’ve tried it. Nothing compares to how good it is. My skin loves it and my foundation usage has halved because my skin looks so nice. I don’t feel the need to cover it up. I love this oil and it’s all I need.
