For this week’s GORGEOUS GIVEAWAY, we have a special treat: Juno Transformative Lipid Serum (ARV $125) from niche skincare line Sunday Riley, which is sold at exclusive retailers like Barneys New York, Bergdorf Goodman, and SpaceNK. The anti-aging serum contains fast absorbing oils that are extremely high in natural retinol—one of the best ingredients in the world to fight lines, wrinkles, and dull skin.

The serum is actually a dry oil and comprises a blend of 10 different oils, the majority derived from edible plants, including acai, black cumin seed, blackberry seed, blueberry seed, broccoli seed, carrot seed, chardonnay grape seed, cranberry seed, marula seed, and meadow foam see oils.

This age-fighting blend has an abundance of vitamin C, essential amino acids, omega-3, 6, and 9, UV shields and natural anti-inflammatory agents. The result: luminous and smooth skin with decreased lines, wrinkles, and discolorations.

The brand’s developer, Sunday Riley became interested in skincare at a very young age, thanks to the teachings of her grandmother, who used Native American plants to regenerate, detoxify, and heal the skin. Sunday incorporated this family knowledge into her NV-5 Complex, which includes blue agave, biofermented aloe and yeast extract, Yellow Lady’s Slipper orchid, prickly pear, and night blooming cactus to calm, fight inflammation, and rejuvenate the skin.

A behind the  scenes darling of fashion shows and red carpet events, Sunday Riley also offers free facials with the purchase of any two products at Barneys New York. Hurry and enter, because we have only three bottles to give away to the winners of this beauty giveaway.
