Hydrating, brightening, dark-spot-reducing milky serum / 1 oz
TWELVE Beauty Ideal Brightening Corrective Serum is a must-have product of the brand’s creator, Pedro Català — and that’s a strong statement, because this guy really knows his stuff. (As beauty editors have mentioned, “What Pedro doesn’t know about naturally active skincare isn’t worth knowing.”)
What makes this such a desert island product for Pedro is the fact that it’s the most “complete” formula in the lineup: along with hydrating and moisturizing ingredients, it contains a supermix of botanicals — Mallow, Peppermint, Cowslip, Willowherb, Lady’s Mantle, Heath Speedwell, Cucumber, White Genepi, Lemon Balm, Yarrow, Masterwort, Buddleja — chosen for their ability to brighten dull skin.
While we’re also partial to the brand’s Ideal Moisture Level Serum, we have to agree that this one is just as fabulous, if not even more so – mainly because TWELVE’s Ideal Brightening Corrective Serum has been clinically shown to improve brightness and reduce the intensity of dark spots from sun, aging, and acne. The light, milky formula also illuminates, brightens, and evens skin tone – and it’s safe for sensitive skin as well as those who are pregnant or nursing (hello, perfect pregnancy-melasma-fighting treatment).
Like the other items in the TWELVE collection, Ideal Brightening Corrective Serum is free from parabens, sulfates, silicones, petrochemicals and glycols. This product is also free of essential oils. Formulated and produced in Spain.

“It’s efficient and effective, more than any other brightening formula, but it's gentle. It’s really working overall and on specific spots.”
