I have developed separate synergistic blends for different skin types: mature, anti-aging, acne-prone, rosacea, dry, and 'for men'.

Choose the blend most suited for your skin type:

ATHENA: for mature skin (60+)

AURA: Anti-aging (25-50+)

ARTEMIS: for acne-prone skin (any age)

SIRENA: for dry skin (any age)

ROSACEA: inflammation and redness (any age)

APOLLO: formulated for men (any age)

Pickle's Potions offers 6 unique, rejuvenating oil blends that are rich in vitamin E, D, C and essential fatty acids, replenishing your skin with the nutrients it needs. Each of the blends is different and the oils used in each serum were extensively researched, are carefully handpicked, and specifically chosen for their specific attributes and benefits. I've also used botanical extracts in each blend from infusions that I make in my apothecary.

Ingredient details:

Avocado oil is a deeply moisturizing oil that is loaded with omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins A, D and E. It can be used for all skin types, but it is best suited for dry, dehydrated or inflamed skin, as it helps to soothe and soften while boosting collagen production. Avocado is an excellent oil to use as a moisturizer since it is thin enough to penetrate the skin but thick enough to form a protective barrier.

Olive oil is a very popular oil, due to its vitamin-rich profile. It helps to plump your skin with high levels of E and A, and calm irritated, itchy, dry skin. The antioxidants fight free radicals and even help to reverse signs of sun-damage.

Argan oil is one of the most expensive oils on earth and is highly prized in the cosmetic industry. You’ve probably seen loads of products on the market recently touting the benefits of this oil. It is pretty remarkable! First off, it has very high levels of vitamin E, and 80% of it is fatty acids. It has a great proportion of mono and polyunsaturated fatty acids. It moisturizes and soothes dry skin with its ultra-hydrating properties. Argan oil can transform your skin, plumping wrinkles and healing damage. Triterpenoids in the oil protect, heal, disinfect, is act as a sun-protective and anti-inflammatory. Argan oil restores your skin’s hydro-lipid barrier.
You can use this oil all on its own, or use it in mixtures and potions. It is excellent everywhere on (and in!) your body.

Rosehip seed oil is a remarkable oil that has anti-aging benefits, particularly because it has the ability to penetrate into deeper layers of your skin, carrying high amounts of beta-carotene, essential fatty acids, antioxidants, and vitamins E and C. The vitamin C stimulates collagen production, and helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles, combat sun damage, improve skin tone, texture, and pigmentation. Rosehip seed oil is deeply moisturizing and helps remove redness and irritation. It is great for rosacea, but please don’t apply to active acne.
If you have plant allergies, please test this oil on your forearm before applying it to your face.

It wasn’t until recently that evening primrose oil was used for its amazing health benefits, so you may be surprised to learn about the impact it can have on your hormone health, skin, hair, and bones.
The omega-6 fatty acids present in evening primrose oil can help you to regulate your hormone levels and cure your hormonal acne issues. These fatty acids also play a role in cell structure, improving nerve function and promoting skin elasticity.
Evening primrose oil has proven to be a valuable treatment choice for people suffering from skin conditions, such as eczema, psoriasis, and atopic dermatitis. Studies published in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science have even shown that evening primrose oil can help with age-related structural and functional changes in skin tissues, such as redness, firmness, roughness, and fatigue resistance.

Green tea has been shown to have antioxidants that help skin and help to improve the appearance of skin.
