How to use

Essential Serum should be applied both am and pm, for best results.

It is ideal to be mixed in the palm of the hand with any of the Age Intelligence Boosters; used all-year-around during the periods when the use of Recovery Serum isn’t needed.

Should be followed with the application of the usual moisturizer, or simply of an adapted SPF care.


ACTIBIOME COMPLEX: An innovative combination of prebiotics and probiotics produced from marine-biology and bio-technology. The complex combines the use of a micro-algae, an algae, one specific bacteria ferment (vegan) and natural saccharides. The different nutrients obtained via fermentation ensure the biodiversity and homeostasis of the skin’s own biome (combination of skin’s own resident, non-pathogenic bacteria).

ATP (ADENOSINE TRIPHOSPHATE): Skin’s own molecule of cellular energy and intercellular exchange fights stress. Research has shown that ATP has a strong potential as a skin-restoring ingredient and as an energy booster.

MADECASSOSIDE®***: Ultra-potent ingredient obtained from the plant Centella asiatica, also known as “tiger herb”. Madecassoside®, isn’t merely the extract of the plant used by most brands, but a purified isolated fraction that soothes stress-induced conditions and rebalances the skin repair.

* Skin Test Institute C/O Intercosmetica Neuchâtel SA
** 1-month cosmetic use test of the product Cell Shock Age Intelligence Essential Serum. Open study on 44 healthy female and male volunteers (no placebo, no binding condition).

Clearer, brighter skin

It does not cause any breakout and I can feel my skin become clearer, brighter and more hydrated. My skin condition has also improved with no signs of acne. It smells lovely too and very lightweight which is important considering the weather in Malaysia is very hot and humid.

Very happy with the results

LOVE! I was very happy with the results after the trial period. I will be shopping with your company in the future, as well as doing product reviews for my new YouTube channel.

Essential for a glowing skin

I have tried almost of all Swiss line products since 2002, and I would never replace them with something else. I have just tried the new Glowing set and I must say it completely fitted to my skin needs. The name does says it all… Essential. Absolutely necessary, for a healthy, very nice looking balanced and finish skin. I absolutely love it!

Perfectly hydrating

I really enjoyed the texture of the serum.  The cold winter weather and Indoors heating have a drying effect upon the skin and this serum felt perfectly hydrating and protective without being too oily.

Helps tired skin

I think it's very good absorbing by skin (which is really great for me cause my skin is oily and many products are "heavy" for me) and improve the appearance of tired and stressed skin. Each morning it gets better and better, I see it.

Glowing skin

I liked the way it absorbed easily into the skin and left a nice healthy looking finish. It was a bit like an invisible layer which gave a good foundation which left my skin glowing.


My skin is super dry and after applying this serum, my skin felt hydrated. It is very light weighted. I definitely recommend this serum who has dry skin like me.

Fresh skin

Great addition to routine, would love to see the results over a prolonged period of time.  Definitely my skin looked fresher and less tired.


I love how it made my skin feel and look. The redness is down, the firmness is up and it never felt greasy or heavy.

Enjoyed it

I enjoyed the creamy consistency, the light fragrance & the finish on my face.

So smooth

It felt so smooth to put on. I feel like it helped to reduce the appearance of the fine lines around my mouth the most.


Its texture is so velvety. Using it on a regular basis makes the skin healthier and lighter. After taking a shower, it soothes the skin perfectly.

Magnificent results

The results are magnificent and almost instant. Within 2 days the skin looked more uniform and felt more hydrated. It was glowing.

Dewy glow

My skin just drank it up, it made my skin have a dewy glow, I liked that it absorbed so fast and felt so good after applying it.

Extremely moisturising

I love the texture and fragrance, it is extremely moisturising. The face ‘shines’ the next morning upon overnight application.

Face appears clearer

I had very tiny bumps on either side of my face and after using the serum for a few days those bumps seem to be even smaller and now they appear to have lessened. My face also looks clearer.

Doesn't feel heavy

This serum made my skin feel smoother. I also like that it does not feel heavy on the skin, therefore I could add on moisturiser or sunblock without feeling uncomfortable. I have oily skin, so I use it in the day with just a sunblock and it feels just right as compared to what I was using before - a moisturiser and sunblock which makes my skin feel oily towards the end of the day.

Made a difference

It definitely made a difference! I really like the scent & texture, too.

Skin feels good

I like the mild fragrance of the serum. Application is easy; the serum absorbs fast and even. My skin feels good after each application.

Calmed the redness

I have very sensitive easily irritated skin, using this serum kind of helped to make skin appear less fatigued and calmed my redness a bit. I applied it as first step underneath my morning moisturizer which has SPF, then at night under my night cream. The first couple of times at night, I did notice that my skin appeared to be a bit more dry and almost scaly, so I had to double cleanse. Extremely light scent was wonderful. The consistency of this serum felt just right, not too thick, not runny or oily. This serum absorbs really quickly into my skin, at times I found myself using a bit more to get an even application. Maybe my skin was just extremely thirsty and wanted more.


It smells really good, absorbs fast and leaves skin hydrated and soft.


The texture is perfect. Make up sets very well. Perfect to touch and skin is wrapped in comfort.


This serum is awesome. I like so much texture and scent. My skin look awesome - perfect moisture and smooth.

Softer skin

It did appear that my face wrinkles had softened and my skin was definitely softer but I was a little disappointed as the serum felt like it just dried on my skin rather than being absorbed.

Balancing like yoga for my face

The scent is herbal but not overpowering, the texture is milky, light, not heavy or greasy, it feels like some of my favorite rice essences — light, instantly hydrating, nourishing. After the first day or two my skin just felt more balanced, I want to say it felt content, centered — like yoga for my face!

Instant radiance

Lightweight, easily absorbed, instant radiance. A wonderful drink of water for the skin. After a few days, fine lines were certainly diminished. Light fragrance, smells clean not like perfume. A new item in my Swissline family of products.

No changes

The scent was nice, moisturizer level was nice, but I did not notice any substantial changes.

Great new addition

I loved the texture, smell and the feeling which this wonderful serum gives to my skin. After the first application,  it felt less stressed, plumped, pampered and looked more even. What a great new addition!

Great feeling

Very nice smell. Easy absorbing and not greasy. Very easy to use. Great feeling on the skin.

Healthier skin

Love the scent!


Great product!

Balanced skin

I liked the delicate fragrance and the light texture of the serum. The skin felt more balanced and hydrated. 

Love the scent

I loved the scent because it reminded me of the scent of beauty products in Spain where I studied abroad. I also loved how much it reduced fine lines and wrinkles in my skin.
