DR Konopka’s Smoothing Face Serum graciously falls into that category.
It’s a resurfacing face serum that offers complete skin care, moisturizing and aiding the skin’s reconstruction process while perfecting the skin’s texture and tone, concealing imperfections at the same time.
Rich in potent ingredients like Vitamin E and polyunsaturated fatty acids, yet with an airy and light formula that penetrates the deeper layers of the skin to provide hydration that lasts all day, it’s the perfect product to give your skin a glow and instantly blur the look of fine lines.
Layered with your moisturizer or used on its own as a thirst quenching solution, it feels like applying a silky soft, protecting and soothing film of goodness which preps the skin infusing it with vitamins and nutrients.
It works as a perfect base for makeup as well, as it creates a velvety canvas for a naturally dewy and glowy finish. The best part is that it is so lightweight and it absorbs so quickly that it won’t interfere with other products, skin care or makeup, whatsoever.
So, somehow this magic little potion managed to gain the respect of those who love layering their skincare products and enjoy a more intricate skincare routine as a part of their self-care drill, and the love of those who prefer a quick fix that instantly makes their skin healthier without wasting time, money and energy on unnecessary steps.
Taking the environmental damage and stress into consideration this serum was created to protect and soothe even the most sensitive skin types and combat all factors that make the skin look dull and tired, promoting a healthy appearance that shines through, even without makeup!

I love a good back-story so when I first started using this serum, I looked up the brands' history as well.
And I was amazed!
It goes back to 1931, when Dr. Konopka decided to open a small pharmacy in the suburbs of Tallinn. Ever since he dedicated his life learning about herbs and plants and using them in the products sold in the pharmacy. He soon developed a healing cream that became the holy grail of skincare at the time and people called it ‘Dr. Konopka’s wonder cream’.
The fact that the brand follows the same mindset to this day puts a smile on my face for some reason. I was browsing through their products and I realized that they simply keep making the same –yet upgraded- formulas, based on the same simple, natural ingredients! The next product on my wish list is the multi-purpose cream. It sure sounds like the perfect have-in-my-purse-at-all-times kind of product!
Another amazing fact that I find super interesting about dr. Konopka’s is that they have a whole section of D.I.Y beauty recipes on their website! How cool is that? It really shows how they truly believe in what they do and makes me think that besides aspiring to be a profitable brand they also want to promote a healthy and frugal approach to skincare!
Let me share a couple of their beauty recipes with you, and maybe we can all have a Fashion Potluck virtual get together on a lazy Sunday morning and treat ourselves to a relaxing self-care day while browsing our favorite posts and chatting with each other!
Cherry mask for withering skin
You will need
Remove stones from the cherries, mash the berries and apply them to your face. Leave the mask on for 15–20 minutes. This will be enough for the vitamins that cherries are rich in to replenish your skin. Tone skin with rosewater.
Oil for dry and brittle hair
You will need
- 30 ml of grapeseed oil
- 3 drops of wheat germ oil
- 5 drops of clary sage ether oil
The following recipe Dr. Konopka would advise to those, who want to strengthen thin hair. Mix the oils. Rub some blend into the roots and spread all over your hair. Wrap your head in a towel, leave on for an hour, and then thoroughly wash with a shampoo. Use once or twice weekly.
