As most of you already know, Gin Amber Beauty is notorious for innovative microneedling technology, including classic dermarollers, Aqua Stamps, and Aqua Pens.
But Gin Amber Beauty runs deeper than just microneedling. It looks at skincare holistically and formulates a strategy on how to rebuild and regenerate skin using methods that include serums, creams, hydrating sprays, and soothing sheet masks.
Nourishing the skin is an essential part of your daily skincare routine, and what better way to deliver this than by using serums.
As of right now, GAB has four serums that each deliver specific, skin-boosting results. But why should you be using serums in the first place? And what exactly is it doing for your skin? What's the difference? And can't you just dermaroll without ever having to touch a serum in the first place? Won't you get the same results?
All these questions are answered, and more. So let's take a look.
GAB Advanced Hyaluronic Acid Serum
First off, what is hyaluronic acid? Hyaluronic acid, also known as hyaluronan, is a clear, viscous substance naturally produced by the body, most often found in skin, connective tissues, eyes, and joints. Its main function is to retain water to keep your tissues well lubricated and moist, but it also has a variety of uses when used externally. It can be taken as a supplement, used as a topical serum, as eye drops, or even injections.
So, What's Special About GAB Hyaluronic Acid Serum?
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is notorious for moisture retention. Able to hold up to 1000x its weight in water, HA draws moisture out of the environment and into the skin keeping it firm and supple. Not only that, but HA has long been known for its restorative benefits for aging skin by massively increasing elasticity and reversing free-radical damage. This is something that GAB kept in mind when formulating our Advanced Hyaluronic Acid Serum. It focuses more on moisture retention and restorative properties, while boosting the skin's texture and resilience.
How Do You Apply It?
Dispense 2-4 pumps into cupped palm (this particular serum is less viscous in nature, so it may appear watery) and apply to freshly cleansed face and neck. This serum is also an excellent “layering” serum; allow to absorb, then follow with moisturizer or other desired serums if needed. And as always, these benefits will be magnified if applied after dermarolling.

GAB Natural 2.5% Retinol Serum
What is retinol? Put plainly, retinol is a type of retinoid, a derivative of vitamin A. Retinol can improve skin texture and tone and help combat conditions such as acne while also stimulating collagen production and cellular turnover.
Put even simpler, it's a powerhouse for anti-aging.
So, What's Special About GAB Natural 2.5% Retinol Serum?
GAB Natural 2.5% Retinol Serum uses a plant-based retinol, partnering it with other skin-enriching and healing ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, jojoba and wheat germ oil, Vitamin E, and other natural ingredients that fortify Retinol’s healing properties.
With continued use (and consistent is the keyword here), our serum reduces the appearance of wrinkles, minimizes hyperpigmentation, improves skin's texture and tone, increases cell turnover and stimulates the growth of new blood vessels, all while enhancing collagen production. It's powerful, non-irritating, gentle, and can even be used after microneedling if waiting at least the recommended 1 hour afterward.
Retinol is a powerful ingredient to have in your skincare arsenal, and with its natural ability to speed up the turnover of superficial skin cells, GAB's Natural 2.5% Retinol Serum really is a must-have serum.
How Do You Apply It?
Dispense 2-4 pumps carefully into cupped palm and apply to freshly cleansed face and neck. If using after microneedling, always wait at least 1 hour before applying serum. Do not use retinol serum if pregnant. Follow with a moisturizer if needed and, because retinol can cause skin sensitivity, we recommend applying at night.

GAB Natural 20% Vitamin-C Booster Serum
When it comes to nourishing the skin, Vitamin-C is a staple. Vitamin C contains anti-inflammatory properties and may help reduce redness and swelling from acne as well as hyperpigmentation. With results much better when applied topically, it only makes sense to have this powerful antioxidant in serum form.
So, What's Special About GAB Natural 20% Vitamin-C Booster Serum?
Our Vitamin-C formula is a multi-tasking gem of a skincare serum. It not only improves collagen synthesis, but its antioxidant properties minimize the effects of free radicals. At 20% concentration, our serum is one of the strongest on the market, featuring the most active bio-available form of Vitamin C to promote smoother, brighter, plumper and more youthful-appearing skin. Match that with natural anti-inflammatory properties that have been proven to reduce the appearance of under-eye circles, discoloration, and puffiness, and you have a Vitamin-C serum that seems almost too good to be true.
How Do You Apply It?
Dispense 2-4 pumps into cupped palm and apply to freshly cleansed face and neck. Allow booster to absorb, then follow with moisturizer (our 10% Vitamin C Repair Cream + Squalane is recommended) if desired. Effects will always be magnified if used post-dermarolling.

GAB Natural Firming Peptide Serum
Ah, peptides. We really saved the best for last. Peptides are amino acids that that make up certain proteins needed by the skin, like collagen and elastin. As you might know, collagen and elastin are essentially the building blocks of your skin, and using a serum or moisturizer that contains peptides can lead to incredibly firmer, younger-looking skin.
So, What's Special About GAB Natural Firming Peptide Serum?
Gin Amber Beauty’s Natural Peptide Serum is formulated with a concentrated delivery system, with added skin-enriching additions like Hyaluronic Acid, Aloe Vera, Vitamin E and other healing plant extracts. The result—especially after microneedling—is visibly plumper skin, reduced appearance of lines and wrinkles, and a firmer apperance and texture.
Utilizing our serum can trigger your skin to begin producing more collagen, elastin, and even hyaluronic acid.
How Do You Apply It?
Dispense 2-4 pumps carefully into cupped palm and apply to freshly cleansed face and neck. Allow product to absorb, then follow with moisturizer, or layer with our Vitamin C or hyaluronic boosters.

So there you have it! All of Gin Amber Beauty's serums, how they work, and why you need them for your skincare routine.
Serums are an excellent source of nourishment for your skin, as well as an incredible route for regenerating, rebuilding, and replenishing the skin on a cellular level. And as always, results will be that much better when used after microneedling, since the serums will be able to absorb much easier and reach those deeper layers of skin.
