Mamaku Night Serum by Fresh

A breakthrough formula that optimizes and encourages the skin's self-regenerative abilities. What it is formulated to do: During the night, skin becomes warmer, water loss increases, cell division occurs, and the skin is most permeable to vital nutrients and active ingredients. Mamaku Night Serum utilizes the skin's circadian rhythm (the body's internal clock that influences how the skin functions) to immediately plump, firm, smooth, and make skin more radiant. What else you need to know: Because it encourages cellular turnover during the night, exfoliating your skin in the morning will enhance the glowing results. In the morning, fresher, healthier, more radiant skin cells are revealed. (Mamaku: From the Mamaku Tree Fern, native to New Zealand, helps speed up skin cell turnover during the night and has strong firming and soothing capabilities. -Hydro Patches: Form a protective layer over the skin's surface to prevent water loss and continually hydrate throughout the night. -AVRC (Fresh's proprietary delivery system of Vitamins A,C, and E), Borage Seed Oil, Grape Seed Oil, and White tea: powerful antioxidants that help prevent and repair free radical damage. -Lotus Flower and Everlasting Wax: effective anti-inflammatories which help reduce cellular damage.) 1 oz $85

BeansTalk Note: We weren’t very familiar with the brand Fresh, but were introduced to it by a friendly, attentive Sephora rep at the Manhattan Beach shop. It has a nice, albeit lighter texture and is the color of buttermilk. It smells sensational. Despite the claim that it exfoliates overnight (and you’re supposed to wake up to a relatively new(ish) face, we can’t necessarily vouch for it. We like the idea of what the product is created from, the Mamaku Tree Fern in New Zealand. We must confess we like the idea of this serum and it’s light, almost non-existent scent and can recommend it based on that, but not really on the above claims.
