Moonlight Afterglow - Brightening and Resurfacing Treatment
Retiniol and Vitamin C products are undeniably two of the most potent and effective ingredients in skincare. However, side effects like skin irritation, poor product stability, and sun sensitivity often inhibit people from using these ingredients to their fullest potential. We had to do something about that. We wanted to create a beautiful treatment including soothing and stable alternatives to traditional retinol and vitamin C, to promote cell turnover, dark spot reduction, even complexion, and textural mprovements. Of course we also had to pair these ingredients with some of nature's finest skin regenerative inredients - rose and ginseng.
This is an oil based treatment, meant to be used after serums and lighter moisturizers. Apply 2-3 drops across the face starting in the evenings. If you tolerate this well, can also be used in the day time. However, be sure to be diligent with appyling UV protection daily with use of this product. SPF 30+ please!
