Note from the founder: I get asked often to make an oil for oily skin, those suffering with breakouts, stress pimples, flareups... so here it is! Simmer Down Serum was formulated especially for you. The scent is earthy and garden-like, to me it's reminiscent of tomatoes, twigs and moss. It just smells real, because it is! I wanted the feeling of the label to convey that organic nature. I found the artist Catie St Jacques on instagram and thought her illustration style was perfectly matched with this serum. I'm so happy with the way it's come out"
