2023 formula Active Hydration Vitamin C+ Antioxidant Serum

"This is my third order of this surprisingly amazing Active Hydration. The product produced a glowing and plump appearance after a very short duration of use." — Katy

"My skin can be very dry and discoloration and dullness are how my skin is starting to show aging. I love this serum - it glides on silky smooth and my skin drinks it right in. My skin is baby soft after using it the first time and after using it twice a day for less than a week my skin was noticeably brighter. More even tone. Just looked way younger and plumper. I love it." — Rashida

"I have super sensitive, reactive skin, but this serum soothes redness and doesn't further irritate my skin. The texture is really nice and hydrating. It sinks right into the skin and instantly plumps and smooths my skin." — LC

Love this

This is now my go to for a vitamin C product that's low waste. It's easy to wear under other stuff in the morning or layer under moisturizers because it absorbs quickly and doesn't leave me shiny.
