Black Locust Firming Concentrate
“I immediately bought a second bottle of this serum/concentrate. I cannot live without it!”
- Sarina E.
Black Locust Firming Concentrate from Earthwise Beauty is a unique, powerful concentrate that improves a wide range of mature skin concerns, including the appearance of wrinkles, loss of firmness, loss of elasticity, and roughness, all without causing clogged pores or sensitization. It contains nutritious seed and fruit extracts and anti-acne plant-derived ingredients in very specific ratios, for a nurturing feel. This oil-based concentrate can be used by itself day or night, or it can be added into a favorite moisturizer or face oil.
Black Locust's consistency is a thicker oil serum that delivers a wide spectrum of vitamins, essential fatty acids, and other phytonutrients for the appearance and feel of firmer, more supple skin.
HOW TO USE ITAdd a few drops of the concentrate to your face moisturizer or aloe-based serum once or twice a day. Dry skin types may massage a few drops directly into freshly cleansed, moist skin day or night. Shake the closed bottle of this serum for mature skin gently once in a while to remix.

Earthwise Beauty prides themselves on their partnerships with organic gardeners, two beekeepers, and a handful of essential oil and hydrosol distillers to create environmentally conscious products while ensuring fair trade practices. Ava continues to explore new ways to develop her brand and has enjoyed increasing her experimentation with her products by featuring flower and gem essences to enhance the inherent properties of the ingredients.
Great for dry winter skin
I love everything about this oil. It feels thick and substantial and nourishing on dry winter skin. The scent is earthy and resinous and strangely addictive. I’ve only been using it for a few weeks so I can’t speak to its firming properties but my skin does feel bouncier when I use it. It does take time to sink in on its own but I’ve had good success with absorption when I use it under something hydrating like a hyaluronic serum or moisturizer.
Black Locust Firming Concentrate is so special and one of a kind. So happy to hear it has worked so well for you!
Potent single product results. Six stars!
I've been using this oil serum mixed with A Nap in the Meadow for the last few days as my only treatment/moisturizing steps. The results have been really excellent. My skin is soft, supple, youthful. I have used Nap on its own and so I know most of the credit goes to this. With this combo, I do not need a moisturizing cream or balm over top. Skin stays hydrated all day. I will probably still use Dewy Bean Dream from LILFOX on the weekends as a treatment for my forehead and marionette lines, but this product does a great job of maintaining those results through the week (whereas I used to need to do Dewy Bean Dream twice a week). It's really nice to use a smaller number of multitasking products like this one. I definitely recommend mixing this with something like Nap because, on its own, it is quite thick and dark, staining the skin, and the scent is kind of heavy. I'm doing 3 pumps of Nap with 4 drops of this. This brand is right up there with Mahalo and Laurel for me in terms of results with amazing, multidimensional natural scents.
Stocking up on this one
I immediately bought a second bottle of this serum/concentrate. I cannot live without it! I mix it with my other serum or cream and it just makes my skin so plump and glowing.
Thank you so much for this amazing review!
Good as gold
I didn’t know how much I was going to fall in love with this beautiful, rich, skin nurturing oil. This has become one of those products that I HAVE to have in my collection. I notice a big difference in my skin when I run out. This keeps my skin dewy, moisturized and healthy. I happen to like the color it imparts onto my face. It’s kind of like makeup for me, gives me a glow that I used to like getting from tinted sunscreen.
We are so happy to hear that you have fallen in love with this oil as much as we have!
Great oil but stains
I love how this makes my skin feel and look. I was using it at night until I realized it was staining my white linen pillowcases. I've washed and washed but it won't come out. So, I deducted 1 star for that. It does "stain" the skin as well as another reviewer noted but I began using it in the morning instead under my makeup and don't notice that the stain sticks around on my skin. I'm very fair skinned and use a light tinted moisturizer/sunscreen combo over it.
