When the award Gods speak, we listen – and when everyday shoppers share their honest reviews, we listen just as closely. Retreatment Botanics fave Kakadu Brightening Serum has gained fans across the board, which is unsurprising considering its origins. As the brainchild of the ever-luminous Olivia Newton-John and her friends from Gaia Retreat & Resort Byron Bay, this ultra-strength, oil-free serum will surely earn its rightful place in your beauty toolkit.

What’s in it
The serum features a special blend of natural and organic ingredients, including Aussie native superstar Kakadu Plum, which is said to be the richest source of vitamin C of any fruit in the world (and is extracted using a ground-breaking method that helps lock in nutrients), Finger Lime packed with Vitamin C and Ferulic Acid, Desert Lime, Aloe Leaf and vitamin C’s ultimate partner-in-hydration Hyaluronic Acid.
What users are saying
If the dry winds, low humidity and lockdown-induced choccy sessions of winter have wreaked havoc on your skin, now may be the time to give your skincare routine a boost. Kakadu Brightening Serum users of all ages and skin types have praised its fresh smell, non-greasy texture and fast-acting results. According to reviews on the Retreatment Botanics website, skin is said to be “noticeably brighter”, “visibly firmer” and “feeling more hydrated”.
How to use this brightening serum
To incorporate the Kakadu Brightening Serum into your beauty routine, simply massage 2–3 pumps into your moist, cleansed face, neck and décolletage. Allow the serum to absorb for 1–2 minutes to allow the active water-based vitamin C molecules to absorb into your skin, before moisturising. Find a step-by-step guide below.
