Hi,

I tried the Rosacea Control Serum with EGF last year and am now wondering if I really gave it a proper chance. I stopped using it after I found that the product didn't mix well and seemed to have separated into liquid and solid after a few weeks in a cupboard at room temperature. Is it normal for the product to separate in this manner? Is there a way to prevent it?

Thanks for any reply.

I am new to Skin Actives and have been using the Rosacea Control Serum since mid March. I have had good results but did have a rough first two weeks. My main problem area is my nose. I shake the bottle before using but have not noticed any separation. Last week or so I began topping the Ros Control w/ new Collagen serum and then topping it off with the UltraMarine Nutrient Serum. I find the Ultramarine moisturizing as my final step. I have no idea what I am doing but it seems to be working so far for me. I am doing this am and pm on my entire face.

I am obsessed w/ my skin and am happy with the products. I placed an order this morning for Bright Eye cream, Serum Quartet Set and the Sun Set. 

Hannah, can I layer the ELS,DmaE and anti-oxidant on top of the Collagen Serum and my final coat Ultramarine? Is this overkill? I want everything because it sounds so nourishing but I don't want a huge reaction!

Thanks,
Sarah

The rosacea control serum is far from perfect, but one thing is for sure: it's best to keep it refrigerated and it will not work unless you use it. Separation will not affect activity at all. Mix it without too much shaking and it will be ready to use.  Months at room temperature are no good for the EGF in the serum.

You can use the products any way you want as long as you use them.   Don't use too much DMAE serum, it may not help with the rosacea.

Thanks, I will probably re-order (and refrigerate it this time) and see how it goes.

Any reason to avoid shaking it much?

Epidermal growth factor is a protein. Think of what happens to egg whites when you whisk them!
