Garden of Wisdom's Perfect Pumpkin Serum contains a 15% blend of Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA), which clears away dead skin cells that have built up on the surface of the skin. Fermented pumpkin has been added to exfoliate naturally, while also hydrating and nourishing the skin. This serum is great for those with Mature, Sensitive, and Balanced skin, but is a fine choice for all skin types.
Method of Application
If you are new to acids, use every three days. In total, exfoliate no more than 3 to 4 times per week.
Use on clean skin (skin can be dampened with hydrosol, toner or fruit mists, or it can be dry). Apply a few drops with clean fingertips, then wait 20 minutes before using any other products. The acid will self neutralize and then you can continue with your routine.
The exception to the 20 minute wait rule is that if the acids are very uncomfortable. If so, rinse immediately and build up a tolerance to the acids over about a months time, increasing the length of time every few days. Acids, however, are not meant to be comfortable as they are a remodeling tool.
I tried my ... sample of the Pumpkin Mask tonight! I agree with the others--it is great! Markey--you should put this up for sale--I would buy it! I am really sensitive so I was worried about trying it--but it didn't bother me at all--and YES! It smells awesome--to me it smelled like a light, fresh version of Orange Clove--but that's just me!! Thanks for the sample Markey! Put that puppy up for sale! :o)
I love it too!... I used it a couple nights ago and it made my skin nice and smooth. I agree with the orange clove smell. I was trying to figure out what it smelled like and when I read orange clove I thought....that's it!
YAY, Pumpkin Mask!... I have to say, I'm not a big fan of masks- I usually try one once every 2 or 3 years, and find it annoying, but the Pumpkin Mask is very easy to use and clean off! Maybe it's the fact that it's clear that makes it seem less messy, or the lovely spicy autumn fragrance that doesn't make me want to sneeze, or the wonderful cooling sensation that makes it feel more effective than anything I tried before, or maybe the ease of removal- warm water rinse, or maybe how clean and fresh my skin feels after... I don't know, I just LOVE it! The only way I can think to improve this product is to make it AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE!!!
I am in LOVE with... this stuff. I know some have said it has an orange/clove smell but to me it smells just like cola gummy candy. lol I applied a pretty thin layer and got 2 masks out of my sample jar. (I love those little dot jars!) I've used it twice and man does your face get tight if you let it dry lol (in a good way, when you wash it of your skin just feels rejuvenated!). It does a great job of dissappearing my flaky patches and, as a surprise, helps pimples on their way out too. I also love that it's totally easy to wash off. I hate trying to wash "stuff" off my face!
I agree....I just love this - a wonderful treat to find in my latest package. I'm making the sample last as long as possible ;)
I LOVE the... stuff too! My sample is all gone! ;o( Smells good and makes your face so soft and smooth!
I just tried... my sample. I looooove it! It left my skin feeling so soft and smooth. No dryness, no irritation. I want this one!!!
Shelf Life and Storage Information for Products and Ingredients
Finished products generally don't need to be refrigerated as they are preserved, but you can refrigerate them to extend shelf life. Shelf life is 9 - 12 months
Sample sizes do have a shorter shelf life (generally 3-6 months and items in jars can dry up quicker than this if the lid is not tightened well enough (except our vitamin C serums - use within 90 days).
Please try to keep out of high humidity or heat if possible! Store out of direct light and in dark cabinet if possible also!
Exfoliating Acid products will last 1 year.
The only thing we don't suggest refrigerating is the mandelic or salicylic acid serums as those can crystallize in the refrigerator and not go back to their normal state even if you warm them up.
