A multi-award winning face serum made from natural and certified organic ingredients, including coffee oil from repurposed coffee grounds.
- Face serum for all skin types designed to brighten the skin
- Rich in Vitamin C from rosehip & sea buckthorn oils

- Scented with geranium, rose and lemon essential oils.

- Housed in a 30ml glass jar with a PP cap, rubber bulb and glass pipette. The standard packaging is with a pipette (per the images) but I have arranged with UpCircle to offer these with an aluminium lid option for your future re-stocks so that you can keep the same pipette to reduce waste.
How to use:
Apply a few drops to finger tips & massage into skin. Can be used morning or night. To use as a hair oil - apply a few drops to the ends of clean, damp hair before before blow drying or allowing your hair to dry naturally. For their full recommended skin routine, check out the blog post.

UpCircle Organic Face Serum
What does it replace and is it an improvement?
The whole UpCircle mission is to prevent a linear economy by repurposing ingredients that would otherwise be thrown away. These serums are made using oil from coffee grounds from cafes around London that would otherwise have ended up in landfill, which to me, makes this product a massive improvement in itself!
Not only this, but all of their products are vegan, cruelty free, sustainable, palm oil free, organic and 100% recyclable packaging that is as plastic free as possible!
Before I started my plastic free journey, I used to get all of my skin care products from The Body Shop. As a comparison, face serums on The Body Shop vary from £8.50 to £32 depending on the range, so at £14.99 this is a fairly average price for a face serum, with all of the added environmental benefits!
What is my review?
I tried this face serum as part of my night time routine as I personally find serums a bit too heavy for the day. It has a pleasant smell which for me is important given that it's right by your nose when you're trying to sleep. You definitely don't need a lot - a little goes a long way!
I woke up with the softest skin I've had in a long time! Was very pleased with this product and would recommend to anyone looking for a great night time serum.
