I got influenced.

I have been using this for about three weeks now. I do feel it when I leave it on longer as a mask. I use a washcloth to remove as it does feel like a slight film otherwise.
I have enjoyed it so far.

Skin Type: Dry

I am now using the Motif Abundance cleanser and the Power serum. My face couldn’t feel cleaner, softer or younger. It brings me peace. Love these two products!

An other hit for MOTIF

I was already a big fan of their cleanser and I now love their serum. Perfect from A to Z. First, the packaging is as elegant as the cleanser’s, and the smell is as delicate. The application is very pleasant. You feel immediate hydration and softness. I did notice a real skin change after about 2 weeks using this serum twice daily. My skin was much smoother and definitely glowing !!! 100% recommended. I am now super excited to see what product will come next :-)

Emily Holden
Skin Type: Combo

I am always a bit hesitant to try new products for fear of breakout or simply not loving and then having already spent money. I am SO glad I took the leap of faith with Motif and purchased both the facial cleanser and the power serum. It took me a couple of days to get used to the cream based wash, but I instantly fell in love after seeing results within 5 days. Overall texture was smoother, soft, less red, and most importantly COMPLETELY cleared any little breakouts and bumps. I find that it usually takes several weeks to notice a change, if any, and these products pleasantly surprised me! I am DEFINETELY going to continue to use and purchase more. Very, very pleased!

My Favorite Serum Amongst A Dozen

I have a bit of a skincare addiction, so I have a cabinet full of serums. This one is my favorite! The texture is light but hydrating, and it smells nice without being overpowering. I can use it day or night and it works with any of my other products nicely. It’s not a full-blown primer but I like wearing it with my makeup because it doesn’t pill like some other formulas. Plus I LOVE that it has a pump—instead of a dropper—that makes it easy to get the right amount. Give this a try and you’ll forget about the rest of your serums!

Is Motif a "clean" skincare brand?

Yes. We prioritize using safe and effective ingredients that do no harm to our skin and our environment. We aim for our formulas to be as natural as possible but believe that not all natural ingredients are good for us—and many of them that meet the criteria of “clean” can still aggravate the skin. This is why our focus is to use ingredients that are scientifically proven to be safe and effective. 


We formulate without the use of ingredients proven or suspected of causing harm including: DEA, Parabens, Phthalates, PEGS, Sulfates, Silicones, Synthetic Dyes, Fragrance & Mineral Oils. Please refer to our Science page for more information about how we formulate.
