Ceretin Serum

1.0 oz Item 2286476

Find in Store-

When PÜR introduced its proprietary Ceretin Complex to its mineral makeup formulas, it changed the beauty game forever. Now, the same anti-aging formula that revolutionized their complexion line is finally available as a highly concentrated serum. This triple action formula fights the leading signs of aging on three levels: Lactic acid gently exfoliates aging, dull and discolored skin; ceramides infuse it with vital moisture; and encapsulated retinol (vitamin A) stimulates renewal for an allover younger, brighter and smoother look and feel - all without the irritation of similar vitamin A concentrations.

(1.0 oz.)
Apply a pea-sized amount after cleansing to dry skin. Follow with appropriate moisturizer.

Precautions: Avoid contact with eyes.

    This was promised as an excellent hydrating serum to combat the harsh effects of drying you get during the winter. It dried me out to the point I was flaking in spots.

                            Hello PUR Beauty! Ceretin Serum is a daily serum to be used 1-2 times a day as your day &/or night serum. It is formulated with purified retinol, lactic acid, ceramides and additional age defying ingredients to address lines, wrinkles, age spots, etc. With regular use, you will begin to see an improvement in the skin within a few weeks and continual improvement over time. It's a great everyday facial serum!

                            PUR does have Get Bright facial brightening serum which contains Niacinamide, Sepiwhite MSH and Bio White. Though our formulas and products are safe for the skin, we do recommend that you consult with your physician or dermatologist before introducing new products into your beauty routine. Get Bright is a more "accelerating" serums that we don't tend to recommend for sensitive skin because of the actives. You will also want to ensure that you wear a high SPF when treating dark spots, hyperpigmentation or etc. http://www.ulta.com/rescue-squad-broad-spectrum-spf-25-dd-creme?productId=xlsImpprod5640352

                            To achieve a fuller coverage with out the "cake", I recommend the applying the 4-in-1 Makeup to over top your foundation for a natural coverage and finish. It can also be worn on its own too! Or Hydrafluid Water Serum Foundation which mimics the look of skin perfection with water encapsulation technology and Ceretin Serum!

                            PUR's Correcting Primers are also a great option to apply to the skin prior to applying foundation. The Correcting Primers colour correct redness, darkspots, hyperpigmentation, minimize pores and soften the look of lines for a flawless look! .

                            This serum helps to fight the visible signs of aging, but it is not indicated to control excess oil. To control excess oil, we recommend applying the Correcting Primer Hydrate & Balance prior to your foundation:
                            http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod5120037

                            The Correcting Primer Hydrate & Balance is oil-free and contains no added or artificial fragrance. It is also gluten-free, silicone-free, and vegan friendly (no animal byproducts).
