Cipher Skincare C-Shield Refining Antioxidant Serum ($95.00 for 1 oz): Cipher Skincare, which was founded by Jenny Hinton, is an innovative antioxidant-rich bioavailable and stable Vitamin C serum that is formulated to effectively fight free radicals while it deeply hydrates the skin, reduces irritation and redness, and it helps fade hyperpigmentation. Furthermore, it leaves the skin looking refreshed and luminous. There is no detectable aroma, and this hardworking serum can be used day and night.

According to Cipher Skincare,

A featherweight all-in-one serum to intensely brighten, hydrate, and smooth the look of skin without irritation. A proprietary antioxidant complex protects from oxidative stress, unique actives softly refine skin’s appearance, and barrier support ensures resilience and vitality.

Discover a fresh approach to your morning ritual with this remarkably concentrated 35% active treatment. suspended within a silky, light, hydrating gelée delivery system, our uniquely unconventional, ultra-potent antioxidant complex provides full-spectrum protection from environmental stressors—the culprit behind photoaging. this advanced formula simultaneously shields skin while dynamic actives refine hyperpigmented spots, pores, and texture. finally, multi-molecular weight hydrators fortify the skin’s barrier to ensure a supple, bouncy finish that lasts.

Antioxidants protect by neutralizing free radicals: unstable, reactive molecules that can accelerate cellular damage, causing visible effects in our skin. vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, but it is also renowned for its ability to restore firmness, promote a bright and even tone, and stimulate collagen synthesis. two stable and bioavailable derivatives of Vitamin C, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate + Ascorbyl Glucoside, deliver this potent ingredient without the sting or irritation associated with traditional l-Ascorbic Acid. not only great for sensitive types—this formula shines on congested, acne-prone skin as it combats visible breakouts without irritation.

The antioxidant synergies of our unique blend are what make this innovative, multi-level defense system extraordinary. white pine bark, sourced for its proanthocyanidins (OPC), boosts Vitamin C‘s effectiveness, enhances photoprotection of sunscreen, and improves skin elasticity. Green Coffee Seed has smoothing, firming, and regenerating qualities thanks to its high concentration of Chlorogenic Acids (CGA). we complete the story with hero Antioxidant Superoxide Dismutase (SOD), a talented enzyme that neutralizes damaging superoxide radicals while reducing visible redness and irritation in the skin. C + E + OPC + CGA + SOD = the ultimate antioxidant alliance.

This complete transformative treatment effectively refines texture and tone for a smooth, clear, glass-skin appearance. sustainably derived prebiotic freshwater microalgae support wound healing for accelerated restoration of visible blemishes. the novel active yeast oligopeptide gently boosts cell turnover to retexturize and reveal the vibrant, glowing complexion beneath. the elegant Polysaccharide of Tremella Mushroom adds intensive nutritive hydration with its soft, jelly-like texture. Hyaluronic Acid, comforting Allantoin, and barrier-boosting Niacinamide join forces for sustained moisture balance and a dewy, plump finish. shield skin daily from multiple signs of cellular damage including fine lines, uneven tone, and loss of elasticity with this luscious, thirst-quenching, all-in-one serum.

Directions: In the morning, apply a single pump to clean face, neck, and eye contour while skin is still damp. Gently massage to absorb. follow with another moisturizing layer if desired, such as beam me up, and a high protection factor sunscreen. may also be used at night. for best results, use at least once daily and limit sun exposure. C-Shield is a low viscosity gelée emulsion with a deep brick-red hue that dissipates on application. it delivers active ingredients and hydration with a feather-light finish. oily skins will likely enjoy c-shield and SPF alone, where drier skins may like an emollient layer sandwiched between the two.

Skin Alchemists Time Traveller Renewing Face Cream ($117.00 for 1.7 oz.): Skin Alchemists, which was founded by Theresa Edwards, is a brand that is informed by ancient herbal traditions and modern chemistry. This delectable and ultra-luxe cream is mid-weight, but it melts into the skin remarkably fast leaving the skin soft, smooth, hydrated and nourished. Hyaluronic Acid retains hydration and plumps fine lines, while Colloidal Silver clarifies the complexion. This wondrous cream has a beautiful light fruity aroma that, while light, truly delights the senses. 

According to Skin Alchemists,

Each and every product which bears the Skin Alchemists name has always been inspired by my own needs, or that of my family, which is why I aim to create the best product in category every time.

Into my forties and experiencing the effects of post-partum skin, I craved a magic potion which would encourage my skin cells to regenerate, renew and age positively. An all-encompassing treatment delivering optimum hydration whilst targeting wrinkles, blemishes and oxidative stress in tandem with my beliefs of ancient plant therapies. 

Time Traveller is the meeting of two sciences. A space in time where ancient apothecary meets modern chemistry. The blending of raw plants ingredients with potent botanical extracts derived by modern science in a base revered by Alchemists and healers – Silver.
Directions: Massage a finger tip amount of Time Traveller onto your face, neck and decollete area after cleansing to nourish your skin and build a healthy skin barrier. Let the scent transport you to a Caribbean botanical garden.
