Equalizing Serum




Skin Type: All skin types that are Dry, Environmentally-Exposed, Rough-Textured


Equalizing Serum protects and perfects skin for flawless makeup. Seals skin from dryness and irritants while giving even the roughest, most porous skin a smooth-as-glass look for a flawless finish every time.  


Strengthens skin’s natural moisture barrier and reduces sensitivity. Provides a shield against harsh or drying environments, and creates a smooth finish for flawless makeup. Dual moisture/protection action addresses both causes of rough, dry skin. Equalizing Serum glides over the skin like a rich, luxurious oil,  after only two minutes, even the roughest skin feels ultra smooth, refined and retextured, with no trace of oil. Oily skin appears to produce less shine – dry skin experiences a renewed vitality from prolonged moisture control.

Fragrance: Essential oils of lavender, bois de rose, geranium, amyris, petit grain, vanilla, clove, orange, lemon, Lang yang, rosemary and cedar. pH None.

Action Ingredients:

·     Silicone blend: provides smooth-as-glass finish

·     Ceramides: skin-fortifying lipid; moisturizes within skin

·     Jojoba oil: moisture-control oil similar to skin’s own natural oils; keeps lipids fresh

·     Hazelnut, rose hips seed, evening primrose oils: lipid-rich plant oils; moisturizes within skin

·     Camellia sinensis oil: soothing oil from green tea

·     Tocopheryl linoleate: forms moisture reservoir for 16-20 hours

·     Retinyl palmitate: protects from environmental aging and irritation

·     Cholecalciferol: textures and conditions rough skin

·     Lithospermum extract: soothing red extract from seaweed

·     Essential oil blend: deliciously fragrant skin-softening oils


Home Care: Gently smooth 1-3 pumps of Equalizing Serum over moisturizer, Power Serums and under Perfect Skin Line-Diffusing Emulsion, or Solar Defender SPF 30. Wait until Equalizing Serum is dry (about 1-2 minutes) before applying products that are placed over Equalizing Serum.

Facial procedure: Apply Equalizing Serum at the end of a facial over moisturizer, since it offers a perfect finish to facial procedures. Makeup may be applied after only 2 minutes.

Blackhead extraction technique: Equalizing Serum lubricates follicle walls allowing effort-free extractions. Steam blackhead area for 30-60 seconds. Apply small drop of Equalizing Serum directly onto the tip of a pointed cotton swab. Dab onto top of blackhead. Steam additional 60 seconds. Blot excess Equalizing Serum from skin surface. Extract blackhead using favorite extraction method.

Makeup application: Apply 1/2 pump Equalizing Serum on face over moisturizer and under makeup. Preps skin for mineral makeup by making skin ultra-smooth and receptive to mineral powders. Makeup may be applied after only 2 minutes.

Exposure to smog, tobacco smoke, airborne chemicals: Blend 1 pump Activating Liposome Complex, 1 pump Oxygen Boosting Complex and 1-2 drops Equalizing Serum. Layer under Skin Defense Crème and Solar Defender SPF 30. For increased protection, mist throughout day with Pollution Solution Mist.

Reinforce skin's protective barrier: Blend Equalizing Serum with Skin Defense Crème. Wear over appropriate moisturizer and under Solar Defender SPF 30.

This serum is AMAZING, it feels like liquid velvet on your face, so deeply moisturising without any greasy feeling at all, thanks for another fantastic product Aiken!

When I put the first drops on my finger, I thought,"Oh, no. This is oil!" I have larger pores and tend to break out easily, so I wasn't sure I should put it on my face. Because I have loved all the other products I have from Aiken, I decided to give it a try. It went on soooo smoothly, and any oily feeling that was on my fingertips vanished once it hit my face. I spread it on and in seconds, my skin felt as smooth as glass. My foundation seemed to spread on evenly, and it did not turn orangey as some foundations can when your moisturizer is too oily. I love the feel of my skin after putting it on. I almost want to use it as a night moisturizer, but I have other Aiken products for that!
