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.

    Comments about PÜR Ceretin Serum:

    I received a sample of this with a PUR order I did on their website. I used it before bed, followed it with my regular moisturizer, and when I woke up in the morning, I immediately noticed my skin looking brighter and "alive". I was so impressed that I went to Ulta and grabbed a bottle and for the past couple of weeks I have noticed a difference in the appearance of my skin. I use it at night and in the morning before my moisturizer. It really is a wonderful serum.

      I use this every morning after moisturizer. I am working to get rid of dark spots/acne scarring. So far is has made the texture of my face so much smoother and softer. I have noticed a little bit of a difference in my discoloration, but not a huge change yet. It has only been about two weeks so I'm going to keep using it and see what happens!

        Comments about PÜR Ceretin Serum:

        I went to Ulta to look for a new foundation b/c as I'm aging (I'm 38) my skin is getting dryer and foundation isn't settling as well. The sales associate said that I have a build up of dead skin on my face (despite using Tata Harper's exfoliating face wash) and that I needed a serum with a chemical exfoliant and recommended this product. I went along with it and made the purchase. I've used it religiously, 2x/day as recommended, for 3 weeks and my skin looks worse. It's drying, I have tiny bumps around the outside of my eyes, which I've never had before, it definitely does not smooth wrinkles or fine lines, and it smells like alcohol. I will be returning it.

            Was recommended this from Ulta consultant, along with the moisturizer. Was told 7-10 days and I'd see results. After 7-10 days, I saw zero results. I gave it a few days longer, thinking this wasn't a miracle product. Still no results. What a waste of money.

                        A:

                        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! .

                        A:

                        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).
