The Mongongo Face + Body Serum is a luxurious formulation with cranberry seed oil, evening primrose, and mongongo oil. Although this product is concentrated, it absorbs quickly into the skin.

The combination of ingredients produces a warm, invigorating scent, which will make you want to use on your whole body. Don't worry, it's for the body, too, so go for it.
