Baré it all and protect your skin with Baré Alchemy Serum

There’s something about Australia and the skincare created there that always is so interesting. I think it’s the pureness of a land with less pollution and more history in the creation of their skincare products. Baré Alchemy is a company that goes to different countries to find the best ingredients in the botanical world. While founded in Australia it goes beyond to bring the best secrets to their line.

Baré Protect Serum

Baré Alchemy has created 3 serums that contain the ingredient Kakadu Plum. I’ve seen this in other products but I can’t say that I’ve tried any with this fruit that can only be found in northern Australia. The serums are designated by skintype: Soothe Serum for dry skin, Protect Serum for normal skin, and Cleanse Serum for oily skin. I have PROTECT SERUM to explain and will give you a little more information on the other two since Baré wants you to find the best type for your own skin.

Baré Protect Serum has two ingredients in it that make this a unique product. The first is Kakadu Plum.

Kakadu Plum

Kakadu plum is a natural superfruit wonder! This fruit contains the world’s highest concentration source of Vitamin C – up to 100 x more than oranges. This alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) fights oxidative stress to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. This extract is also shown to improve radiance and skin luminosity.The natural antioxidants in Kakadu plum extract, Vitamin C and polyphenols, reinforcing cell antioxidant defences, protecting your skin from attack by free radicals.

This incredible extract also stimulates the synthesis of pro-collagen and hyaluronic acid to actually reduce the evidence of aging.In controlled tests, 100% of participants showed improved skin luminosity with the use of Kakadu plum extract.

Found in Northern Australia, Kakadu plum is an ancestral food for the Aborigine people, providing vitamins during long treks or hunting trips, and was also used as an antiseptic and as a soothing balm for aching muscles.

Kakadu Plum is the hero ingredient in Protect Serum since it is packed with Vitamin C to firm, help fade dark spots and protect skin. It is loaded with antioxidants and will help regulate moisture and deliver nourishment to your skin. It’s an ingredient that is sustainably harvested too.

In addition to this safe and mild ingredient they use Caviar Lime Pearl.

Lime Pearl (Caviar Lime)

The precious Australian caviar lime fruit is naturally rich in AHAs, and gives us the amazing Lime PearlTM exfoliating agent. With fast clinical results, Lime PearlTM provides gentle skin exfoliation for a smoother, brighter and even skin complexion. Australian caviar lime contains various fruit acids such as citric acid. It also contains vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants which contribute to the health of your skin. By stimulating TRPV3 channels, Lime PearlTM offers a new mechanism to gently promote skin 30 minutes.

These are not ingredients I’ve noticed before in skincare. But Baré Alchemy finds what’s best for skin with these types of botanicals.

Now let’s talk about the serum itself. I have to tell you that the packaging is fabulous. It looks ethereal on my vanity. My mouth dropped open when I opened this beautiful bottle. But as beautiful as it is we need to know if it’s worth the luxury price.

Baré Protect Serum

Baré Protect Serum has been welcomed by my skin as it has helped brighten it during these dour winter days. It works on a cellular level so it’s particularly good for aging skin. I went through a few weeks in January that were difficult health wise but I kept up with my skincare since I didn’t want my skin to suffer. I feel that my skin remained luminous and it didn’t feel dry.

One of the most interesting things about this bottle is the applicator. You can see that “stick” standing up from the neck of the bottle. Well that’s the applicator. It has a rubbery cork like seal to preserve the product.

Baré Protect Serum applicator

As you pull it out you’ll find the scooped out stick to hold the serum so you can transfer it to your palms for application. There’s no spilling and you don’t get out more product than you need (or at least I don’t). It also keeps the serum from getting contaminated since you pour it directly into your palms. This can be used alone but I use it as my first step in my night routine. It dries quickly and I often use another serum over it and always end with my moisturizer/night cream.

There is a slight fragrance to this (I always mention fragrance!!) but one that isn’t noticeable after a few minutes so it doesn’t disrupt my sleep. I get nervous with botanical scents so I’m happy that this dissipates so quickly, I’m sure others wouldn’t even notice it.

This beautiful serum is $90 but you’ll end up using a small amount so it will last for quite a while. As a company that is cruelty-free and vegan know that it’s a brand that’s safe for your skin. Let this lovely serum or one of its sisters pamper you.  —  Marcia
