Fend off dullness with a brightening serum made with a cocktail of pigmentation-fighting plant extracts and antioxidants. With vitamin C (one of the most well-researched and proven ingredients for brightening and firming), licorice root and palmaria palmata extracts (skin-lightening agents that inhibit pigmentation), and niacinamide (a form of vitamin B3 that reduces the appearance of discoloration), uneven skin tone can become a thing of the past. This brightening serum also helps firm, hydrate, and strengthen skin—stick with it and those brightening ingredients have some solid fringe benefits.
New to vitamin C? It does have a subtle but distinct smell—don’t worry, after a little while you won’t even notice it. It can feel slightly tacky at first, but this serum absorbs quickly. It’s orange! The color can vary from batch to batch and deepen over time, but it doesn’t affect the brightening serum's performance. And finally, be patient. It can take one to two months to see visible results.
Made with 50% PCR (post consumer recycled) plastic.
HOW: Press 2-3 drops into clean, almost-dry skin. Let it sink in for two minutes before your next skincare move.
WHERE: Face and neck. Bonus points for chest.
WHEN: AM and/or PM after cleansing (and masking or toning) but before moisturizing.
GOOD TO KNOW: Store your brightening serum in a cool, dark place—not your hot, steamy bathroom—to keep the active ingredients potent from the first drop to the last.
Use within 12 months once opened, or keep it on your vanity unopened for up to two years.
