Hi My Lovely Reader
This is my first time trying anything from ISUN but as regular readers know I do love a brand with a story, and ISUN do have a lovely story with the founder Bunnie Gullick creating the company in her 50s  (read it here )

When I started out with the brand as I always do I start with the product before I investigate prices etc, to me price is not an indication of quality nowadays when it comes to skincare.  Since working with the products I have now come to learn that they are not cheap !  indeed they are an investment into your skincare routine at £125.00 for 30ml Phyto-Infusion and £110.00 for 30ml Intense Ultra Restore this is definitely not small change.

These products come in dark glass pump bottles designed to protect them from light and contamination,

Phyto-Infusion Facial Serum

A lightweight creamy coloured serum with a fragrance that to me resembles both flowers and herbs, a clean fresh almost salon type fragrance, typically what you would expect from a natural product.
The bottle reads Facial Serum with revitalising stem cells and DNA Protective Phytoplankton on Googling Phytoplankton it is Marine Cells, unfortunately there is nothing on the website that explains ingredients or compositions. 

You apply 2-3 pumps of the serum to clean dry skin both morning and night it is then followed by 2 pumps of;

Intense Ultra Restore

A facial oil containing Vitamin C, CoQ10 and Carotenes ( info from the bottle )
This is a rich fragrant oil with a distinct herbal fragrance you are advised to use 2 pumps over the Phyto-Infusion or for a lighter application 2 pumps of each mixed together, I found mixing them worked far better for me as I don't have extremely dry skin and found using the two on top of each other left my skin too oily for make up application.  This method is to be used both day and night.

Both are designed for Mature Skin.

I very much liked both of these products in their own right and mixed together was the method that worked best for me, my skin was left feeling moisturised and comfortable with no redness or reactions, while I would say they are nice products the lack of transparency concerns me somewhat, I like to know 100% what ingredients in what quantities are going onto my skin, You do obtain a whole comprehensive list of ingredients with your purchase which is great, but for my money I would like to see this in advance of parting with my hard earned cash. 

Update:  I contacted the Brand for more information as in all honesty I didn't understand what "Wild-crafted " Meant and I was also looking for Organic certification, they very kindly answered me with this, as you will read, ISUN goes above and beyond Organic, which is really something very new to me.


Wild-crafted plants are harvested from natural habitats untouched by humankind. Generally, the soils are abundant with life from both the animal and mineral kingdoms that optimally support their growth. 

All ISUN products are formulated and developed by founder Bunnie Gulick. They are manufactured in the San Juan Mountains in Colorado using cold pressing techniques in green manufacturing practises. ISUN do not outsource any part of the making of their products to an independent manufacturer.


ISUN products have no organic certification and there is purpose in this... Wild-crafted plants are the truest organic plants and of higher value than cultivated organically grown plants, though there is no certification for wild-crafted that would make them ‘politically correct’. When they are available, our first choice of ingredients for ISUN products are wild-crafted plants because of their exceptionally high life-force energy, their higher nutrient values and their purity. These qualities combined offer the greatest benefits to the health and youth of our skin, body, mind and spirit.
