Excellent lightweight serum
- Packaging: Plastic tube with tri-roller (three roller balls) delivery system. Screw-on cap. Handy for travel. Feels heavy and luxurious.
- Scent: I can't place it, it's a light floral scent that doesn't linger.
- Texture: lightweight, easily absorbed serum.
- Nothing miraculous in terms of how my skin looks but at least it feels nice and nourished. No complaints, just a nice little treat at the end of the day.

Three mini sized roller balls on the top of this 20ml canister tube makes for a very relaxing massage around my eye and upper cheek areas. As it is a oil-based serum I don't use it on my T-zone or other areas or I'd probably just break out. So this is perfect for my dryer areas which never breakout no matter what I put on them!
If I had to say one word for this product it would be 'RELAXING' as it totally massages gently with a good quality natural serum so it's like a mini convenient pamper session for my dry areas.
It doesn't really have a smell - just a faint oil type of smell. It's a secure screw-top lid which makes it fine for taking on holidays which is where you may love to use it. The size is a slim tube which could easily fit in the handbag/travel bag/desk drawer etc. The price makes it really good value.
If you are in the market for a relaxing, simple serum-like skin product then this would be your answer!
Made in Australia, against animal testing and free of any nasty ingredients. Well worth the money!

Wake up softer
The problem with serums are I never know if it's working, or if it's just the moisturiser. So I tried my moisturiser with and without Puretopia serum and slept on the results. I woke up softer after the Puretopia.
I needed the test because the serum sinks in so rapidly and feels utterly weightless. Great stuff for those of us with little patience. Alas, I had no patience for the three-ball roller top. It clogged, was awkward around my nose and bumps etc and I wanted more than the applicator gave me. A couple of twists and the roller tip was off, and I could pour out what I needed. The roller is replaceable.
One thing I'd like to add: I didn't use the serum for a month and notice that it had separated, a clear liquid on top of the white cream. A good shake emulsified everything again, but I've never had separation before in other products, moisturisers or serums, including those I haven't used in a year.

Puretopia is Australian made and owned, the products are 100% sulphate and paraben free, no synthetic fragrances or artificial colours, no propylene glycol, no DEA,TEA or silicones, they are against animal testing, and the packaging is recyclable - now that’s impressive. I thank BH for giving me the opportunity to try this divine serum. This is the first serum I have ever tried that is packaged as a tri roller massager and I just love the feel as I roll this on my skin. I massage the roller upwards from the base of my neck to my chin, then from my chin outwards to the jaw, cheeks and the side of my nose, finish off by rolling across the forehead in a circular motion – concentrating on problem areas. This helps with visible signs of ageing – wrinkles, puffiness, loss of firmness, visible pores and uneven skin tone. The steel rollers feel so cooling and the ingredients in the serum are just heavenly – Oil from Argan, Seabuckthorn, Bilberry, Blackcurrant, Cranberry, Rosehip and Shea Butter. While you sleep your skin is being spoilt with the benefits of antioxidants, Omegas 3,6 and 9 and vitamins to give a softer, more vibrant, plumped, younger skin. There is no real definite scent either, it’s very subtle really. After using this for more than 2 months, before applying my Puretopia Night Cream, I have noticed a huge difference in my skin and I am loving the effects. This serum is for everyone, every skin type, it’s just beautiful and it’s so affordable.

Glosscars Nomination - Puretopia
When I first heard about this range I could not wait for it to hit the shelves of chemists and Priceline stores. Puretopia has a great range of skin and body products at affordable prices and most importantly they are kind to your skin without any nasties.
This facial serum was one product from the range that I just had to try!! Hearing all the amazing ingredients such as argan and seabuckthorn which have been hailed as the holy grail ingredients when it comes to hair and skin health for their repairing, moisturising properties, omega fatty acids and other beneficial nutrients.
The product comes in a roller tube with three roller balls which get massaged along the face and neck when applying the product. The product itself is very light and fluid like in consistency.
The roller balls have an amazing cooling sensation on the skin and you can roller all over the face and even eye area (the product is light enough to use around delicate eye tissue).
This product instantly absorbs into my skin. I keep it in my bag for applications throughout the day for a pick me up and nourishment to the skin.
My skin appears to look more vibrant and awake when using this product. The product toghether with the massaging balls seem to take away that tired look and help diminish those under eye bags.
The product is mess free and I can even apply it without my fingers or without looking in the mirror to see what I'm doing. I can be on the couch feeding bub and giving myself a little pick me up at the same time.
This is the first product I have tried from the Puretopia range and I'm really pleased with the results and keen to try more of this affordable fab range. Highly recommend :)

Amazing product that works!
I won this product thanks to bh and its amazing the roller action can be a little jarring and hard to get use to but thats the only bad point it goes on great and a little really goes along way I used it on my more njoticeable wrinkles like around my eyes, mouth and forehead and noticed that they soften quite a bit its so light that you can use it under cream and soaks up super fast you can even put makeup on over it a couple of minutes after using this will be buying it again!

Actually worth the price!
I've used this product for over a month now and I'm pretty impressed! I'm prone to dry, sensitive skin which can get red and irritated during the summer months. Since using this serum, I've noticed a reduction in redness around my nose and my skin feels very smooth and soft. I know you're supposed to use it with a mosituriser, but since I'm in my 20s I find that combination is too rich for my skin.

A delicious meal for the skin.
Thank you Beauty Heaven for sending this serum to me as a prize. I've been using it for a few weeks now. Although it is intended as a night serum, I do apply it some mornings as well.
The serum is packaged in a tube with three steel balls at the end to massage your skin. While this is a hygienic way to apply the serum, it can be a bit awkward. Around the nose and chin a more flexible applicator would be preferable. The 20 ml contents last forever (or nearly).
I love the natural ingredients in this serum - argan, seabuckthorn, bilberry, shea, blackcurrant and cranberry. A delicious meal for the skin. It worked as a great moisturiser and left my skin feeling soft to touch. However, my wrinkles and pores remained undiminished, so there were no miraculous results in terms of the look of my skin.

PURETOPIA PURE NUTRITION ANTI-OXIDANT+OMEGA OILS ESSENTIAL FACIAL SERUM REVIEW
Thanks BH for the serum prize. Normally it costs $24.95 for 20mls.
This facial serum presents differently from other serums.
The difference being, it has three stainless steel rotating rollers so that, as you apply the serum, it gently massages your face and neck. This process also stimulates your circulation.
It is also a very hygienic way to apply the serum as it does not contaminate the remaining serum in the bottle.
Easy to follow instructions are on the box...start from the neck upwards in a circular motion. Also apply at night after your normal skin care routine.
The serum is pale, thin and soft. I did not notice any scent. I loved applying the serum with the rollers as they felt cool and refreshing. The rollers also help to apply the serum evenly.
The serum just melted into my skin and I loved the feel of it. I have applied a little extra to two areas of uneven skin tone and they are slightly less noticeable now. My skin does look healthier. The serum contains natural ingredients.....no nasties. It is not tested on animals and the packaging is recyclable.

I was very excited when I got this roll-on serum and was eager to give it a go. It feels really nice and cooling on the skin as there are 3 metal balls that work by spinning to distribute the serum. You are supposed to work it upwards and outwards from the neck up in circular motions.
