Radiance-boosting, supercharged antioxidant serum / 1 oz full size
*Next Gen: Upgraded with new C derivatives in addition to the original concentration of encapsulated ascorbic acid for even more C power. Also, now essential oil free.*
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.
Whenever you use it, follow it up with the moisturizer of your choice (we love the Protective Day Oil, but if you need other suggestions, just get in touch!).
PS Vitamin C shelf life is a hot topic, but don’t worry about this one. The peachy-colored Vitamins C+E+Ferulic Serum contains ascorbic acid stabilized in an anhydrous solution, so it’s not activated as an antioxidant until it reacts with the moisture in your skin.
The next-gen formula does not contain any essential oils, which makes it odor-neutral at first — but, due to its many active ingredients, it may develop layers of complexity over time (like a good wine). Like all Marie Veronique formulations, it uses anhydrous emulsions, encapsulation, and combinations of synergistic ingredients to ensure that the formula stays perfectly stable and active for 6 months after opening.
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.
