I’ve tried about 10 different serums over the past year but this is the only serum that makes my skin glow and look like it did 20 years ago. Also I find I don’t need to apply foundation this serum is amazing I’m on my 3 rd bottle in 11/2 months

Perfect glow

This is the second time I’ve bought this and I’m so happy to have it again. It gives my skin the perfect amount of glow and really helps brighten my skin. The whole line is the best I’ve found!

Perfect treatment for after cleansing

I use this serum every day - morning and night. It’s the perfect first step in preparing my skin for the moisturizers and other treatments I use - absolutely love it.

Miracle in a bottle

I was gifted a bottle of Alpyn's PlantGenius Survival Serum and oh my gosh!!!! This is the most amazing serums I have ever had the pleasure of trying. My biggest skincare concerns were fine lines and dark spots. After just one use I noticed the skin under my eyes looked smoother and fine lines were less noticeable. After a week I noticed that my skin was much brighter and my dark spots were lighter and easier to cover. I was most amazed, however, after using for two weeks. I can hardly see my dark spots anymore and the fine lines on my face are WAY less noticeable!! My skin is also much brighter, more supple, and it appears younger with a nice glow!!! A+ Alpyn Beauty!! I will continue to purchase my skincare products from you!!!

Happy face

I really enjoy this survival serum as well as the other Alpyn products I am using. They are working so well to keep my skin soft and smooth without feeling oily or sticky. Perfect!
