Native Restore Serum

Featuring Evening Primrose & White Sage *USDA Certified Organic

$90

3.4 oz

Our USDA certified organic multi-correctional serum combines 17 potent botanical oils and extracts that have been used for centuries by Native American tribes to cleanse and soothe the skin. This 100% organic blend was formulated for its ability to restore balance by regulating sebum production, clearing and calming the skin, and intensively nourishing, plumping and hydrating. 

 

Cultural Roots

The Native Americans used a variety of herbs, flowers, fruits, seeds and tree barks for culinary, medicinal and spiritual rituals. The yellow wildflower, evening primrose, was valued for its edible seeds, used as tea, and to treat bruises and wounds on the skin. Research shows it contains a crucial Omega 6 fatty acid rarely found in plants called Gamma-Linolenic acid (GLA), that enhances the epidermal barrier. Evening Primrose is also known for its soothing and anti-inflammatory properties and has the ability to dilute sebum production and calm acne flare-ups while hydrating the skin.

White Sage was considered one of the most sacred plants to many native tribes for its medicinal uses; from treating sores, snake bites, eczema, and headaches to attaining balance and mystical foresight, and repelling impure energies. Modern research shows the plant has antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and strong antioxidant properties, and can also help regulate sebum production and tone the skin.

Each additional ingredient by itself has impressive benefits but together, this unique combination creates a powerful elixir that penetrates on a deep level, delivering intensive nourishment, hydration, and balance for truly restored and rejuvenated skin.

  • Antioxidants that protect against free-radical damage
  • Anti-inflammatory phyto-nutrients that calm & balance
  • Essential Fatty Acids that plump & repair
  • Vitamins & Minerals that speed cell regeneration & nourish the skin
  • Mucilage that intensively hydrates & softens
  • Natural Anti-Septics that regulate sebum production and help with an overall clearer complexion
  • Astringents that help cleanse and tighten pores and gently tone the skin

Reviews Ingredients Frequently Asked Questions

"This serum (and the Aborigines Cleansing Oil) may be the most sophisticated products I own, both in formula and packaging. Gypsy Secrets knocked it out of the park on these two and let me tell you why. First off the packaging looks and feels luxurious and expensive. Secondly, these products are formulated with a host of powerhouse ingredients making each a master in their category. The Native Restore Serum has 17 botanicals that combined, create an extremely soothing and hydrating oil serum. A few notable ingredients are evening primrose, white sage, red clover, sumac, and sea buckthorn. This is a massively anti-inflammatory treatment that both smells and feels amazing." ~ Becca C. (@honeyandhighlighter)

"Within the pass year I was, diagnosed, treated, and completely recovered from throat cancer. My prognosis early on was excellent, yet the treatment for any throat cancer is brutal. Daily radiation to the neck area literally burns the skin and all the internal organs associated with the neck. The first photo is from the last day of 36 intense radiation treatments. The second photo was 32 days later. My physicians were amazed at my recovery, most notable was the regeneration of my skin. This is usually a 60 day process with some expected scarring. This product with all its magical ingredients, I believe, was the single contributing factor that created new growth and no scarring in half the projected time. It’s really amazing and I still use it everyday." ~Bill D. (@billdunn3)

"The Native Restore serum restores and balances the sebum production. It also clears and calms the skin, and lastly it's intensively nourishing, plumping and hydrating. Okay, I agree with all the above! I absolutely love, love this serum/oil. I use about 3 drops of this oil. It does everything it claims to do to my skin. I’ve used this oil in multiple ways, on its own, mixed with two other different oils, and with my overnight masks. The results are far better when mixed with other products or oils. I've noticed that when I don't use it for a couple of nights, my skin tends to go crazy, but when I go back to it, my skin calms, it reduces the redness and bumps intensively; is that even a thing? But yes, it repairs my skin like nothing else. I seriously love this stuff. It's amazing. It retails for $100, which yes, is expensive I get that! That's why I try not to use too much because I really want to make it last forever!" ~ Skarlet B. (@thatkindaface)

"I received this face oil and the Persian Renew eye cream as a gift and LOVE them both so much. They're truly effective and both my husband and I have seen good results after a couple months. My husband really likes the green, woodsy scent of the Native serum and says it's his absolute favorite product. It's very soothing and moisturizing without feeling oily, and I feel like the astringent ingredients like juniper berry, yarrow, cypress and cedar wood have really helped shrink the size of my pores." ~ Leyla K.

"This product is an aromatherapeutic experience in itself. It takes only a few drops of the serum to evenly coat the skin and feel a soothing, calming effect. I wake up the next day with reinvigorated skin. With continued use, I have noticed that my face becomes clearer and more vibrant." ~ Joan S. (@skinwhims)

"This product (along with the Amazonian Super C Repair Balm) helped rejuvenate my skin after a 10-day break from my whole skincare vault. I was shocked to see how these transformed my skin alongside a couple of my staple products. They look and feel luxurious....I feel like I'm using an ancient mythical remedy..." Madison P. (@the_glowdiator)

"This is my go-to, at least twice a day. I can’t get over how soft my skin feels, not to mention how dewy it looks with or without makeup!" ~Shahrzad N.

"The Native Restore Serum is a thin oil made with Slippery Elm Bark (antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, soothing), sumac fruit (anti-inflammatory), red clover (antioxidant, anti-inflammatory), sea buckthorn (antioxidant), dandelion (antioxidant with detox properties), marshmallow (soothing), grape, jojoba, pumpkin, rosehip, evening primrose & carrot. All the following are antimicrobial & astringent—White sage, juniper berry, cedar wood, yarrow & cypress. These all give this a pretty potent scent—Very earthy, sharp green essential oil scent. I find the scent relaxes me and I actually prefer this more as an soothing night treatment. I’ve been using it on my wrists and then breathe deep." ~ Michelle N. (@thebeautyendeavor)

"I adore this stuff and it smells like you’re getting a spa treatment! I use it in the AM/PM after cleansing and toning. This serum contains 17 potent botanical oils to help cleanse, clear, and calm the skin. If you’ve followed along on stories the last week, you’ll see that it has helped greatly with my redness. The serum balances the skin while not only moisturizing but also hydrating. The common mistake people make with dry skin, is over moisturizing, when really they need hydration. This blew my mind when I found out. And drinking water can help, but honey…I drink a TON of water and my skin was still drier than the Sahara desert. The Restore Serum would be #1 on my list." ~Kait Miller (@gypsykait)

"The Native Restore Serum is oil-based with an incredible lineup of 17 botanical extracts. A few of the ingredients include: evening primrose seed oil, white sage, slippery elm, and marshmallow root. It has a slight and pleasant woodsy smell when first applied. I found that it layered well with other products and did not pill under makeup. My skin appeared healthier and plump. This serum also felt very calming and nourishing when my skin really needed it. I’ve been using it for a little bit over a month now and will continue to use it as part of my routine." ~ Julia H.(@eyecreamandlattes)

"Again, like the oil cleanser, I usually do not love serums as my face will feel clogged and stiff, but this serum completely changed that for me and is now a daily necessity for me. It utilizes botanical oils and Native American extracts that have been used for a long time. This product is one that I would recommend all day long." ~ (@venusrisingblog)

"Evening Primrose is EVERYTHING. I love this ingredient so much I'm even taking it daily as a supplement. It enhances radiance, combats dryness, roughness, redness, irritation and so much more! Meanwhile, White Sage aids with cell regeneration amongst many other benefits. This oil is light and absorbs quickly giving that instant glow!" ~ Monita S. (@skinandvino)

"I love this product. The Native Restore Serum is my favorite! Smells amazing and I especially enjoy it before bed- the scent is so soothing." ~Arnaz B.

Is this face oil okay for acne-prone skin?

In addition to choosing nourishing ingredients that offer vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids, the combination of botanical oils and extracts in this face oil were also chosen for their balancing, antiseptic and astringent properties. These properties will help moisturize while balancing sebum production. The ingredients in the Native Restore Serum should also help treat damaged skin from previous acne in addition to soothing, calming, plumping and hydrating the skin.

I hear some essential oils can be photosensitizing. Is the Native Restore Serum safe for daytime use?

We did not use any known photo-toxic citrus oils or any extracts directly shown to be photosensitizing in our formulation. Some advise however, that one of our 17 ingredients, cedar wood, should be used with caution when it is directly exposed to ultra-violet light such as sunlight, tanning beds, etc. If you are especially prone to sun sensitivity or are taking any medications that may increase your sensitivity, be sure to pair with a sunblock, SPF tinted moisturizer, or solely use the Native Restore Serum in your evening ritual, and use the Amazonian Repair Balm during the day. Either way, we always recommend limiting direct sun exposure for the protection of your skin.

Do I need an additional moisturizer?

The Native Restore Serum can be used by itself or layered with our Amazonian Repair Balm, or another lighter moisturizer, depending on your skin's needs. Some find that it absorbs faster on their skin and they prefer additional moisture. Try it out and discover what works best for you!
