Over the past few weeks I've been trying out a product called La Mav Intense Moisture Nightly Repair Nectar.
This was sent to me by Chikii and I have fallen in love with it.
I've been using it on my decollatage, neck and face.
As we get older, the decollatage is the area we will notice aging first.
The serum melts into my skin and I do feel as though it's making a difference to the way it feels and looks. My skin doesn't feel as dry, lines seem smoother and not as deep and the moisture from the Nectar keeps my skin feeling moisturised throughout the day. I've been on the look out for an organic product for the delicate decollatage and this is it.
I've been using it nightly, you only need a little bit, so it is quite economical.
The natural scents from the bio-actives and oils also make it smell wonderful.

Following is an informative post by Chikii on the benefits of using serums.
Organic Skin Treatment Serums
Skin treatment serums are used as part of a facial treatment when you go to a Beauty Therapist or to a spa. A serum contains highly concentrated ingredients, delivering vital nutrients and vitamins to help rejuvenate and heal and to treat skin ailments. They absorb into the skin quickly and more deeply for a more intensive effect. Formulas vary, but most serums are designed to smooth, soften, reduce the appearance of dark spots, hydrate, brighten and help to combat sun damage.
How to use a beauty Serum – Apply a drop of serum to your fingertips and massage it gently into your freshly- cleaned skin in the morning and at night, then follow with your usual moisturiser. You don’t need to use more than a drop or two to cover your whole face and neck. You will likely feel an immediate change in your skin the first time you use a serum – it may feel softer,smoother and perhaps a little tighter. But most formulas promise a visual change in four weeks, especially if you have fine lines and wrinkles,redness or large pores.
Should I use a serum in addition to a moisturizer, or do they take the place of a moisturizer? Moisturizers act to protect your skin, where serums may be less protective, but more therapeutic. You can use a serum under your moisturizer for additional skin benefits. However a serum can be applied on its own at night, if you have oily skin (instead of a moisturizer); or during weather conditions when you want to forgo a heavy moisturizer.
Can serums be used on my neck area? – This region often gets missed and is typically the first area of your body to show the signs of aging. Serums are perfect for delivering potent nutrients to the décolleté area. Follow with your moisturizer on your neck as well.
How long does a serum last? – Many people apply too much – a little goes a long way. So a bottle should last longer than the same size daily moisturizer because you should be using less. We find serums generally last the longest of any product in a skin care routine because 1-2 pumps is all you need. If your skin feels sticky, you’ve used too much.
