“love this serum! i use it morning and night. it is a bit on the sticky side when it dries but it’s worth it in my opinion. it’s helped brighten my skin and even out its coloring. i have fair, acne prone skin, so i’m constantly battling dark spots from scars and the sun. plus this serum truly helps my skin hold moisture. goodbye dull, dry skin and hello to a healthy glow!”

Love this product!

I have really enjoyed this serum so far. It makes my skin super soft and glowy! It has a really subtle scent to it too so it is not over-powering.

Leaves skin dewy and bright!

This is a lovely serum! Has a night lightweight texture that sinks right in. Aroma-neutral formula is perfect for my reactive skin. I layer this underneath the ceramide serum and my skin has been so happy!

Love this light serum

Not only is the smell really light and fresh, but I swear I could feel it instantly absorbed into my skin after cleansing. It felt relieving and cool without being too heavy. It goes a long way and if you don’t waste it by accidentally rubbing it on your hands, it can really last a while!

Frequently asked questions

We upgraded our Vitamin C Serum (now called Vitamin C Glow Serum) by switching to a more stable vitamin C derivative, ascorbyl glucoside. Ascorbyl glucoside similarly functions as an antioxidant that helps skin look brighter and smoother, while staying stable for longer. Additionally, we also added azelaic acid, which helps evens skin tone (especially fade post-breakout marks!) and refines skin. We still have our sea grape caviar and hyaluronic acid ingredients (slightly increased in this formula!) to provide hydrating benefits.

Vitamin C (ascorbyl glucoside) is in the formula at 2%, while azelaic acid is also at 2%. Both actives are used at clinically effective levels, and the usage levels align with our philosophy of "a little bit often". At these ingredient levels, we not only benefit from the antioxidant and brightening properties they boast, but the overall formula is also potentially more suitable for acne-prone and sensitive skin types.
