Botáni’s Olive Skin Serum is a youth boosting elixir featuring cell rejuvenating Olive Squalene and is your daily defence against ageing. Dehydration is the number one contributor to premature signs of aging on our skin, in all skin types, so moisturising the skin is a must. Botáni’s Olive Skin Serum allows you to moisturise the natural way, with Botáni’s signature skin intelligent ingredient olive squalene as the anti-ageing ingredient – nature’s only comparable moisturiser to that found in our skin.

This biocompatibility allows Botáni’s Olive Skin Serum to be easily absorbed into the deeper layers of your skin as it's immediately recognised. Being able to oxygenate cells at this deep skin level, true hydration and healing can really occur. Key features and benefits include: it locks in moisture for an immediate hydration boost of 50 per cent within 24 hours, it plumps the skin, softening fine lines and wrinkles, it delivers oxygen into skin cells, accelerating scar healing, it balances skin tone and decreases the appearance of age spots, it imparts an instant glow and satin finish, immediately reducing redness, it protects the skin from free radical damage caused by UV rays and environmental damage, it's non-irritating, non-allergen, non-toxic and suitable for all skin types, and it works brilliantly under primer as its non-greasy and odourless

great serum, good for winters
This serum is great for use in winters. I use it as serum/ moisturiser at night. It is a bit pricey but the little bottle does last a long time. I don't care for the smell that much, but it is ok for night time use.

Light and hydrating
I bought this serum because I wanted to compare it to rosehip oil. Botani's Olive Skin Serum feels much lighter on my skin than rosehip oil. It also absorbs into my skin much faster than rosehip oil. For a serum that sinks into the skin so quickly, you'd think that Olive Skin Serum's hydrating quality would not be long-lasting, but my dry skin felt softer for quite a while. Having said that, rosehip oil does feel richer and more hydrating on my skin.
Although Olive Skin Serum seems expensive, you only need a few drops of it to cover your entire face and neck. It is also quite a versatile product. Apart from using it on my face, I recently used it to help soothe a severe shaving rash.
There are many people with oily skin that shy away from using rosehip oil as they're worried that their breakouts will get worse. Such people would benefit from trying Botani's Olive Skin Serum due to its light texture. People that don't like the scent of rosehip oil will probably love Botani's serum because it has almost no scent.

Not suitable for very sensitive skin
This serum is nice & light & absorbs well. However, if you have a tendency to react to certain ingredients and/or have very sensitive skin, then avoid this. Unfortunately I had to stop using it as every time I applied it my face would start to feel hot & turn red (hence why I can only give this 3 stars), despite the claims on the box that the product is suitable for sensitive skin & people with eczema/psoriasis. I think the Vitamin C contained in this serum was the issue for me. That said, I would recommend it to other people who don't have sensitivity issues as it is an affordable serum.

Have been using the serum together with the Botani cleanser and before the Botani moisturizer and absolutely loving the results. Just a few drops are enough to cover the entire face. Apply it when still damp from cleansing and you can feel the difference immediately.
My whole face felt so much softer and more radiant. As its non greasy its perfect for acne prone skin and works beautifully under makeup.
Love the glass bottle with the dropper which helps you dispense just the right amount. Does not flare up any existing acne and helps smooth fine lines and acne scars. Its very gentle and suitable for sensitive skin types as well.

I have been using this serum for a few months now and I do really like it. It is a light weight oily serum that contains vitamin E and vitamin C along with some great cell identical ingredients.
It does not contain fragrance, so I love that factor. It comes a small glass bottle with a dropper, which is great for dispensing out the serum.
I have oily skin But for some reason I love serums, I did not find that this made me oilier or break out and it was a bit more light weight than some of the others I have tried. I do not apply moisturise over the top as my skin just needs a bit of the serum and that's enough product for my oily skin.
It gives a great healthy glow to the skin, slightly evened out my tone and It helped a lot to heal my pimple scars in a quick amount of time. I was a bit disappointed that I have not really seen a lot of improvement on my old pigmented spots, maybe I need to keep using it for a longer time period.
I do really like this product and will be purchasing it again.

Silky smooth hydration
This serum is a miracle! 2 drops of the serum is enough to apply evenly for the whole face and neck.
Once applied, the serum absorbs quickly without and greasy feeling. I only feel that my skin has sank in a deep and rich moisturiser. It has the silky smooth hydration effects.
The Olive Squalene in this is rich in Vitamins E & C and has had several benefits for skin such as increased clarity, smoothness and also helps to soften fine lines. It significantly reduced my ageing lines on my next. It has also been really usefull in the fading of my acne scars and hormone pigmentations, which have reduced considerably since i began using it. My pores has minimised, especially significant result on the pores around my nose area. The pores has reduced in appearance.

I purchased this at my local priceline when they were relocating since they had 40% off everything. I hadn't done any research or read any reviews prior to buying this so I didn't have any expectations.
Once I applied it though.... OMG!! I love this serum. The serum is more of an oil serum. I apply 2-3 drops both morning and night after cleansing on a damp face. The serum applies better when you apply it on a damp face rather than on dry face. The serum is gentle enough to apply around the eyes too. Once I apply it all over my face it absorbs really quickly and hydrates my skin without it feeling or looking oily/greasy. I then apply my daily moisturiser over it and also apply my makeup in the morning. It really hydrates my skin all day long. No more flaky dry skin around my nose.
Another thing I love about this serum that it is all natural and organic. It's high in Vitamin C and my skin looks really healthy and soft. I will definitely purchase this serum again!

Silky smooth hydration - Excellent product
This serum hydrates so well, much more than any cream can. It's so light weight and easy to apply but doesn't leave my skin oily at all. It doesn't break me out. It doesn't feel sticky or greasy, just super smooth and silky.The scent is a little like olive oil but only very slightly. The texture is much different to olive oil, it's very thin and light. It improves the hydration of my skin over just a few uses and only a few drops is needed so this little bottle lasts a long time. It can be used over top and under the eyes as their is no irritation. The dropper is so handy at dispensing just the right amount. You can add a drop of this to your usual moisturiser as well! Will definitely buy this in future.

I have only just discovered this beautiful oil but already in love with it. Its texture is lovely and hydrates the skin beautifully. I put a few drops on at nighttime before my nightcream and my skin is so soft and supple the next morning.. love it!
