Love the texture and fabulous subtle aroma of jasmine. The serum is a delicious treat to use, light but nourishing. I love the noticeable glow on my skin!

Bioactive Illuminating Serum

I absolutely love this product! I love the smell and how it feels on my skin. It’s super light, but not watery and my skin felt so hydrated in the morning when using at night.

Bioactive illuminating serum

I really liked this product. It felt smooth and not at all greasy. I don’t think it had the usual nice Velettà aroma but that was ok as sometimes a non-scented product is good too.

Bioactive Illuminating Serum

Love! Love! Love!
I have been using velletta skincare for at least 4 years now and I just love how it’s all natural, using plant based ingredients. I especially love the moisturiser but now after trying the serum, Wow! It’s so light on your skin, it almost feels like a gel. It absorbs into my skin instantly with no greasy oily look or feel. My face felt soft and even toned. I’m definetly going to purchase this serum.

Dewy light and packs a punch!

I immediately loved the texture of this serum as it is so light and made my skin feel so dewy! It sits beautifully under makeup and doesn’t cause pilling! Most importantly as someone with dry, pigmented skin prone to angry breakouts I was relieved that my skin didn’t have a stroppy reaction to this product! I really felt the difference as my skin soaked up all the goodness with a visible improvement of my skin texture and clarity ! This is the serum that will help me on my way to dewy dolphin like skin !
