When researching Serums and Elixirs, I often found the terms interchangeable, depending on who was writing about them.  In the end, since there didn't seem to be a definitive answer, I decided to call my water-based formulas "Serums" and my oil-based formula an "Elixir". Why?  They just sounded right! 


The SkinWishes Green Apple and Glow Facial Serums are water-based and packed full of yummy humectants (ingredients that draw water from the air and pulls it into your skin) including the powerhouse ingredient Hyaluronic Acid.  Suitable for all skin types.  Use these after you cleanse and mist, before you apply your moisturizer. 


The SkinWishes Silky Face Oil Elixir is oil-based and formulated with ultra light-weight ingregredients that soothe, smooth and cover the skin with a protective film to trap in moisture.  Suitable for normal or dry skin types.  Use this in place or your  your water-based Serums.  OR for an extra boost of hydration and protection for super dry skin, use your serum as normal and apply your Elixir after your moistirizer.  Did I say AFTER?  You bet!  Applying your Oil Elixir on top of your moisturizer locks in all the goodness you just added to your skin.  Try it, you'll be surprised!
