Radiance-boosting, supercharged antioxidant serum / 1 oz full size
When a discerning beauty editor revealed to us that this supercharged antioxidant serum is her desert-island product, we knew we had to take a closer look. Said beauty editor is a smart cookie, because she knows that the magical trio of Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Ferulic acid can dramatically improve the protection offered by your sunscreen.
What’s particularly smart about this product is that the CE Ferulic combination is joined by other antioxidant powerhouses, like Co-Enzyme Q10, astaxanthin, and lycopene. And it’s in a moisturizing, sensitive skin-friendly base that leaves all complexions looking radiant.
Vitamins C+E+Ferulic Serum is a fabulous alternative to retinol for pregnant women, too, since its Vitamin C can work at night to rebuild collagen. So if you’re expecting or nursing, try using this as your AM/PM treatment serum.
PS You know that other CE Ferulic serum everyone uses — the one that starts to smell oddly like hot dogs after a couple of months? Once it starts changing color and smelling like hot dogs, it’s not terribly effective anymore. As Marie explained to us, “Our ascorbic acid is stabilized in an anhydrous solution, so it doesn’t start working as an antioxidant until it reacts with the moisture on your skin. Pretty cool invention. Not mine, unfortunately.” (That’s OK, Marie. We still think you’re brilliant.)
How to Use
- Co-enzyme Q10: A powerful anti-oxidant that boosts skin repair and regeneration.
- Astaxanthin: A very powerful antioxidant from the carotenoid family that protects against long-wave radiation damage.
