Boom Nectar is my idea of a serum. Most of the quality serums ********* the skin and work inside, because they have an aquagel consistency. They do nourish but leave the epidermis kind of matte, sometimes dry. This calls for another cream or lotion on top for a softer, brighter, moister finish. Boom Nectar is based on oils, non sticky, so is very convenient for my dry skin. Most of the time, I don´t need to put anything on top to feel my skin moisturized. During the day is up to me if I go for a second layer of hydrating. The color, the scent and the fluidness are lovely.
