WHAT IT’S FOR

Brightens & tones skin by combining 9 powerful botanicals to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation, dark spots, and uneven-tone for smoother, brighter skin.

Clear

Description

DETAILS:

Bakuchiol, nature's answer to harsh retinol, has been used for centuries in Eastern medicine due to its strong antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-microbial properties. Recent scientific studies have shown that it is as effective as retinol at targeting signs of aging like hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles without irritating skin the way retinol does. We combined this super ingredient with 8 other powerful botanicals to brighten and tone skin. These super ingredients include Vitamin C, Bearberry, Gooseberry, Mulberry, Kakadu Plum, Baobab Seed, Licorice Root, and Ferulic Acid.

USE TIPS:

Apply up to twice daily to clean, dry face and neck area. Allow to fully absorb for 2-3 minutes. For maximum benefits follow with Naked & Thriving Face Oil.

INGREDIENTS

Bakuchiol, nature's retinol alternative, brights skin and improves tone without irritating or overdrying skin.

Vitamin C helps brighten and even tone while reducing the appearance of fine lines and defends against free radicals.

Baobab Seed is highly concentrated in antioxidants and promotes collagen formation and elasticity.

Black Mulberry, known for its anti-aging properties, helps reduce hyperpigmentation for youthful, clear skin.

    I started using this serum a few weeks ago, and am so impressed with the results! I use it every morning right after cleansing. I have dark under-eye circles that I have never been able to get rid of (genetic, hyperpigmented), and have definitely noticed that they have lightened. I’ve also noticed sun spots lightening, etc. My skin just looks clearer, brighter. Amazing!

    Excellence in a little bottle!

    I am delighted with ILLUMINATE BC!
    It has improved the skin tone over my face & very soon after I started using the product.
    Not only has it faded my sun spots but it has lightened the dark circles around my eyes.
    Definitely worth buying!

    love the glow!

    I have been using this product off and on, and noticed a definite difference in how my skin looked on the days I used it. The flat and sallow appearance of my skin seemed to disappear, replaced by younger, brighter skin. I now use it on a regular basis. Love it!

    I really wanted to love this product! I tried it for a while but the smell is something I can’t get past. It also made me break out, so I have stopped using it regularly. I do still try it from time to time because I did notice a difference in my sun spots. If you don’t have acne prone skin and can get past the smell, it’s a good product.

    Well researched and worth it!

    I have used other Vit C serums in the past but after doing some research felt this was the best option for me. It goes on so smoothly and I love the way my skin feels and looks.
    Great product.

    Amazing

    I am a skin care junkie and can’t even estimate the money I’ve spent over the years. For the first time, I can say that I saw a difference with Protect serum in a few days and so bought Illuminate serum and Detox oil, which I use at night, and Prevent oil, which I use with Protect for the day. Texture has improved, dark spots reduced, fine lines gone—with no irritation or breakouts over a couple of months now. Could not recommend more highly.

    Great product!

    I really like the illuminate serum. It brighten my skin and doesn’t leave a greasy residue. I’m 52 and have always tried to take good care of my skin. I feel the Naked and Thriving products have helped me to maintain a youthful look. My skin care routine follows with their rejuvenate face oil and I love it as well.

    Amazing product

    I have very sensitive skin and am always wary of trying new products but have used this for 3 days and I have to say the condition of my skin has massively improved in a very short time! I have quite red cheeks (possibly rosacea) and since using illuminate, the redness has already calmed down – amazing as I have never found a product with this effect. I have been following with the prevent oil. No irritation at all from either. I bought travel sizes as wanted to try before purchasing the full sized bottles, but will definitely continue with these products. I know everybody’s skin is very different, but these products work amazing well for my skin and I am super happy, thank you!

    Love Love Love!

    Absolutely love everything about this serum. It sinks in quickly and does not leave any residue. After about a week I noticed more even tone and my skin literally seems brighter.

    Sorry I had to stop using

    I really wanted to love this product. I began to break out after using it. Asst sure if it was the product or something else, so stopped for awhile. When I started again, breakouts returned, so I’m not using it anymore. Love their oils, tho!

    Fantastic Product

    I’ve been using this product for a few months and my bottle is just about empty. It is an amazing product. It completely took away the dark sunspots that were on the sides of my face and on my cheeks. I tan easily and had melasma type spots on my face for years. They went away in a very short time and even with all the pool time and spending many days in the hot Florida sun, the spots didn’t come back. I also had some fine lines on the sides of my face that have diminished to the point that I barely see them. I have very sensitive skin and never had any reaction from this product. I would highly recommend this (and have!) to anyone looking to reverse sun damage and aging.

    Phenomenal skin almost immediately, I kid you not!

    I am a skincare addict and I frequently do massive amounts of research before trying any product. I am also 39 years old and I have oily, acne prone skin but I also smoked from the age of 18 to 28, thankfully I have been able to quit but it was too late since I have smoke lines near my lips and wrinkles on my forehead. Anyway like I mentioned, I have tested a decent amount of skincare products in my day but I also have a tendency to be drawn in by what’s the most fashionable and expensive thing you can find at places like Sephora. Lately I’ve been using mainly Drunk Elephant products, especially their AHA/BHA products with moderate success but I swear they are the cause of some breakouts I have been getting on my chin. My mother, who is 67 years old but looks only 50 years old, has amazing, smooth and clear skin. I asked her what her secret was and she told me that all she really uses is this serum and their Prevent oil each morning. I had never heard of Naked and Thriving before, but I finally tried the Illuminate serum two days ago and I think I found one of the most miraculous skincare products I’ve ever used. I usually wait to review items until I feel like enough time has passed to give them a proper chance but after the first day of using this my nasty smoke lines look diminished and what I’m really excited about is that it faded old acne scars significantly, in just two days. Also the existing pimples I had on my chin are clearing up, my pores look tighter, it gives my skin an instant glow. This is the only new product I’ve added to my regimen recently. So far it hasn’t caused any pore congestion or irritation, and it’s formula is not greasy, gives you a glow. Let’s just say I have been using drunk elephant for two months and have yet to review it, I have been using naked and thriving for two days and I cannot stop raving.
