Lucent Facial Concentrate by Aesop is a potent hydrating serum formulated to replenish and balance the skin. The serum’s aqueous viscosity and lightweight skin feel are ideal for those who eschew oil-based hydrators and heavy creams, but still desire concentrated doses of vitamins, intense hydration and nourishing botanicals.

Aesop’s serums have the lightest texture and finish in the brand’s range of hydrating products, making them suitable for those with combination and oily skin, and for those residing in hot, humid climates. The serums are aqueous-based formulations that offer primarily humectant- based hydration, typically enriched with a suite of skin-supportive ingredients.

Skin-balancing Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C) and barrier-supportive Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) are included to help even the appearance of the skin, while Sodium Carrageenan boosts moisture and provides sustained hydration. Additionally, essential oils of Rose Otto, Sandalwood and Frankincense are included for their renowned nourishing properties.

For best results, dispense one to two pipettes—roughly half a teaspoon—into your hands and gently massage into cleansed and toned skin, from forehead to neck. Suitable for year-round use, Lucent Facial Concentrate can be used as a layering serum, followed by your preferred Aesop hydrator, or as a standalone hydrating formulation for combination to oily skin types.

The serum is part of Aesop’s Skin Care+ range: formulations distinguished by their generous measures of skin-supportive vitamins and complementary botanicals. Lucent Facial Concentrate is packaged in a 60mL amber glass bottle with pipette.
