Carol’s Daughter produces hair care, bath & body, and fragrances, as well as their skin care line. In the Carol’s Daughter skin care line, there are toners and face washes as well as the signature Essential Serum.

The Carol’s Daughter Essential Serum claims to soothe the skin while protecting it from wrinkles. It comes in two formulations: oily skin and normal-to-dry skin. Both formulations retail from the Carol’s Daughter website for $11.50 for one-half ounce, but at the time of this review both products were out of stock. The official website contains little information about the products and does not present a full ingredient list or application instructions.

The Carol’s Daughter website not only does not offer trial sizes or samples of its products, it states that all sales are final and not subject to return or refund. Most of the higher-quality skin care manufacturers offer at least a 30-day money back guarantee and/or a free sample as a sign of the company standing behind the quality and effectiveness of their products.

Product Details

Carol’s Daughter Essential Serum for Oily Skin contains essential oils of lemongrass, geranium, and jojoba oil. According to the website, lemongrass regulates the sebaceous gland’s oil production. Geranium helps regenerate skin which relieves congested pores. Jojoba oil is easily absorbed into the skin and helps to transport the other active ingredients. There is no full ingredient listing on the website so the possible inclusion of other, possibly allergenic, ingredients are unknown.

Carol’s Daughter Essential Serum for Normal-To-Dry Skin contains essential oils of carrot seed, ylang ylang, and patchouli, and claims to heal cracked skin, promote elasticity of the skin and reduce inflammation. Jojoba oil is the base of this product as well. Again, there is no full ingredient list on the website, so it is difficult to assess the effectiveness or allergen potential of the formulation. There are no application instructions for either product on the Carol’s Daughter website so the length of time each bottle should last is unknown.

The Good

  • Contains natural essential oils.
  • Inexpensive .
  • Specific targeted formulations for different skin types.

The Bad

  • Limited supply.
  • Non-disclosure of full ingredient list before purchase.
  • No money-back guarantee or free samples offered.
  • No apparent clinical evidence of effectiveness.

The Bottom Line

Carol’s Daughter Essential Serums contain essential oils that can be effective skin rejuvenating and wrinkle-reducing treatments. Unfortunately, Carol’s Daughter does not provide enough detail for the consumer to evaluate the amounts or sources of the known ingredients or the potential detrimental effects of the ingredients not listed. There is a limited supply of the products and they currently are not available from the Carol’s Daughter website. The low price of the serum and the lack of a product guarantee could suggest a lower quality product that the company is unwilling to stand behind. If you are seeking a skin care product specifically to address wrinkle reduction or skin regeneration, there are dozens of products on the market with more disclosure and more effective and proven ingredients.

Rejuval Skin Bottle

Top Anti-Aging Cream for 2015: Rejuval Skin

Editor's Review: 4.9 / 5.0

After looking at literally hundreds of wrinkle reduction and prevention treatments, Rejuval Skin is our top choice. This product offers customers a Risk-Free Trial, and makes sure to both repair and protect the skin without using harmful chemicals like paragons or fragrances. No other formula that we've seen takes such a holistic approach to skin care. Rejuval Skin contains the advanced scientifically proven ingredient Acetyl Hexapeptide-3, proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. When you factor in the trial offer, the potent formula, and the scientific studies posted on the official site, it's easy to see why Rejuval Skin is our top anti-aging pick. >> Read more about Rejuval Skin Go


(Optional- For Enhanced Results): Vivexin

Editor's Review: 4.6 / 5.0

We've reviewed thousands of anti-aging eye treatments, and we've never seen anything quite like this! Vivexin is an anti-aging, eye treatment formulated to lighten dark circles, lessen the appearance of bags under the eyes and minimize fine lines and crow's feet associated with premature skin aging. The three active ingredients in Vivexin - Haloxyl, Eyeliss and Matrixyl - are backed with clinical research and positive consumer testimonials. If that's not enough to convince consumers to try Vivexin, the company offers a 90-day money-back guarantee so consumers can see the changes in eye appearance with the option of returning the product if they are not convinced >> Read more about Vivexin Go
