Welcome to the Serum of the Month!

Every month, we create an exclusive facial serum available only by pre-order and subscription!* These unique and creative combinations are specially formulated to correspond with each month since our skin's needs can change throughout the year. Formulated and handcrafted by Irene (Fawn Lily Botanica's owner + maker). This is a perfect (and fun!) way to try new ingredients, new formulas, and conveniently receive a new serum which was custom-made for the season at your doorstep! These limited release products are only available by pre-order. Pre-orders close on the 10th of each month, then will be made fresh and shipped the following week.

Pre-orders are now open for April's Serum of the Month! Infused with organic saffron, turmeric, ginseng leaf, yerba mate, and marshmallow root, blended with a medley of incredible oils including pumpkin, safflower, chia, olive, and buriti, and scented with vanilla, turmeric, cananga flower, and ylang ylang essential oils, this is such a fun and unique formula! It's truly unlike anything else available on the market and so incredibly beneficial for the skin. 

The scent of this blend is earthy and creamy from the turmeric root, with sweet and exotic notes from vanilla bean, cananga flowers, and ylang ylang flowers. If you've ever had a turmeric + honey latte, then this blend may be reminiscent of that yumminess!

This is a lighter weight facial oil than our winter blends, soaks in quickly and effortlessly, and leaves skin feeling silky-smooth, nourished, and protected. It has a non-comodegenic base (meaning that it can be used by all skin types without clogging pores) which is important during the transition into springtime, especially if you live in a region with substantial shifts in the weather from season to season.

During seasonal transitions, we'll often notice imbalances with our skin and even acne breakouts as our skin reacts to and adapts to changes in temperature and humidity. The warmer weather and higher humidity in spring can cause skin to produce more oil and sweat which can clog pores. During this seasonal transition, I like to use lighter oils which absorb into the skin easily, then follow up with a facial balm or cream if skin needs an extra layer of moisture and protection. This is because the products that we relied upon throughout the autumn and winter months may be too thick and heavy once the weather warms and there is more moisture in the air. This is the perfect time to update our skin care regimes accordingly so that skin can stay healthy and balanced.

The full ingredient list for this serum is: organic Safflower oil infused with organic Saffron threads, organic Turmeric root, organic Yerba Mate, organic North American Forest Grown Ginseng leaf, and organic Marshmallow root, organic Pumpkin seed oil, organic Olive oil, organic Chia seed oil, Buriti oil, Vitamin E Oil (non-GMO), organic Rosemary antioxidant, Vanilla botanical extract oil, Cananga flower essential oil, Turmeric essential oil, and organic Ylang Ylang essential oil.

Each of the ingredients in this special formula was carefully chosen for its beneficial properties and here is a quick summary of their benefits:

  • Safflower Oil (organic): A deeply moisturizing oil, rich in protective antioxidants, known for its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, and used to help reduce acne including blackheads and whiteheads. A non-comedogenic oil which benefits all skin types from dry and damaged to oily without clogging pores. Plus, it has a lightweight consistency which soaks into skin easily.
  • Pumpkin Seed Oil (organic). High in essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals, and antioxidants, this oil is moisturizing, protective, and nourishing. Helps support the health and structure of the skin, signs of aging and wrinkles, firms, and assists with acne.
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil (organic): Although usually associated with culinary use, olive oil is amazing for the skin! It is naturally very high in oleic fatty acid, supports natural sebum production, attracts moisture to the skin, helps repair and heal damaged tissues, is very moisturizing and soothing, and contains plant-based squalene which supports the delivery of oxygen to skin cells, prevents the evaporation of moisture, is a natural emollient and protective agent, and helps prevent dry skin and premature aging.
  • Chia Seed Oil (organic): A very nutritive and nourishing oil exceptionally high in omega-3 fatty acids, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. This oil is known to assist with various skin issues, helps regenerate skin tissues, and to help with the treatment of acne.
  • Buriti Oil: The richest source of carotenoids and beta-carotene! This incredible and powerful oil is also rich in vitamin E and oleic acid, and is known to restore moisture to skin cells, rejuvenate and rebuild the skin, assist with skin elasticity and degeneration, help with various skin issues, protect against UV rays, repair damage from sun exposure, assist with free radical damage, and so much more!
  • Turmeric Root (organic). Well known for its anti-inflammatory properties, turmeric is also known to soothe and brighten the skin, and to even out skin tone.
  • Saffron Threads (organic): Saffron is well-known to be the most expensive spice in the world, plus it contains skin care benefits. It soothes skin, is used to treat acne, blemishes, reduce redness, promote the healing of minor wounds, and it contains antioxidants, vitamins, and has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. 
  • North American Ginseng leaf (Forest Grown and Organic Certified): Sustainably grown and harvested ginseng leaf is almost unknown in the skin care industry, but studies have shown that the leaves have incredible properties especially as an anti-aging ingredient. Plus, this botanical contains antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, helps improve overall skin health, regenerate skin cells, and naturally helps with the production of collagen. Although ginseng roots are more well known, studies have shown that the leaves contain many of the same properties as the roots while being a more sustainable and renewable to grow and harvest.
  • Marshmallow Root (organic). The roots contain a soothing mucilage which benefits damaged, chapped, inflamed, dry skin, and assists with acne.
  • Yerba Mate (organic): Yerba Mate contains antioxidants, vitamins A, B and C, and chlorophyll, reduces and helps prevent the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, puffiness, improves skin elasticity and firmness, and contains skin-soothing properties.
  • Vanilla Botanical Extract Oil: The irresistible aroma of vanilla is soothing, uplifting, calming, comforting, relaxing, removes feelings of anger, agitation, frustration, and boosts confidence. 
  • Cananga Flower Essential Oil: These exotic flowers support healthy cellular function, sooth skin, support healing of minor wounds. The scent calms and relaxes.
  • Ylang Ylang Essential Oil (organic). This essential oil is used to balance oil production, sooth skin, and the sweet, exotic, floral aroma is relaxing and uplifting, reducing stress and anxiety.
Size: 1 oz glass bottle with treatment pump. 
Pre-orders will close on the 10th, then will be made fresh and shipped the following week.


How to use:  First, wash and dry your face with water or a gentle facial wash. Mist with 1-3 spritzes of facial toner and allow to air dry or gently pat dry with a soft washcloth. Finish by applying 1-2 pumps of facial serum.  Allow to absorb completely into skin before applying makeup or sunscreen. Use twice per day (morning/night) for best results.

If you are interested, but don't want to commit to a pre-order or subscription, please note that if we have any extra bottles after filling pre-orders, then they will be available on our website afterwards at a higher price.

To extend the shelf life, store in a dry, cool, and dark area. Direct light and heat will reduce the effectiveness and shelf life of the product.

Note: Some of the oils used in or formulas are very rich in fatty acids, and will naturally solidify in cold conditions. This is perfectly normal for these oils, and will not impact their quality or usage. If you wish to remove any solidified fats in your oil, the best way to do this is to place the entire bottle in a double boiler over low heat and allow the oil to slowly heat up. Once warm, any solidified particles will remelt.

Not just for your face

I find your products that contain Bakuchiol (the retinol substitute) to be useful on my hands as well s my face. My hands look better and healthier since I started using your serum on them. Thank you!


Very lovely

My Favorite Treat

I love to treat myself to the Serum of the Month. Every time it is an amazing serum that hydrates my skin for the time of the year. I have never gotten one that wasn’t awesome and the next month is always something even better!

Love Serum of the Month!

This was my first time using the "serum of the month" and I'm in love. I'm pretty married to my routines and have used the facial toner and oil for several years. As much as I love them, I'm more in love with this past month's serum. It provides a creamy feeling along with a light scent that makes my skin glow. Now I'm not sure if I'll go back to the oil or not. Thanks for making such wonderful products that I'm willing to break out of my box to try.

This serum is very moisturizing and yet very soothing for my sensitive skin. Loved this product. Also the packaging was so detailed and personal.

Glowing skin for this 55yr old dude feels great!

Some are hits others stink

The serum from December/January that contained jasmine was nice and not overwhelming. The one for February/March (I’m not actually sure what month it is but it seems like it’s every other month, or maybe it was just slow to start?) contains something called benzoin that smells horrible. It’s like cleaning solution. Blah! But after a few minutes, it’s tolerable. The serum itself is fine minus the smell.

Overall, I don’t know if I’ll keep using this stuff because as one other person said, I get better results from commercial products.

...a tropical paradise for your skin

The medley of tropical oils brings the fragrance of guava and passion fruit to your skin. Allow the daily application to whisk you away to a tropical paradise.

Hi Richard Thank you so much for the lovely review! I'm so happy to hear how much you've enjoyed using this facial serum! I agree that the tropical aromas of this serum were extra special, and I absolutely loved creating this blend for you. Thank you so much for your support and for leaving such a wonderful review!
