Staple in my skin care routine

By Liz

from Arizona

Comments about H2O Plus Waterbright Illuminating Serum:

I can't say enough good things about this serum. It's light weight but highly moisturizing. It feels amazing going onto the skin. The smell is heavenly. Oh and IT WORKS. I wake up every morning with my face looking healthier and more glowy and hydrated. (Note: I do use this with the waterbright illuminating night cream like it suggests and I love that as well)

        This is a great serum with a pearl like effect that I actual see my skin becoming more even in tone and smooth after a few weeks of use. It's moisturizing enough for me that I almost don't need to layer any moisturizier on top.

              I love this stuff! If you have any sun damage or discoloration, it brightens the spots within a few weeks of continued use. It also hydrates which is great for my dry skin.

                      A:

                      It is never too early to use products to slow down the signs of aging! Though our Waterbright Illuminating Serum is treatment product formulated specifically to improve clarify and complexion health, even out skin tone, enhance skin radiance & texture, reduce intensity of dark spots and increase skin brightness. If you have any skin concerns with dark spots, uneven skin tone, dull / lack luster skin, this product would be perfect.

                      A:

                      The Waterbright Illuminating Serum can be used for dry skin type. However, if you have sensitive skin, we recommend reviewing the ingredients with a dermatologist.

                  • Q:

                    What percent of vitamin c is in this product? Would it be equivalent to using a vitamin c serum?
                    Asked on 7/19/2017 by Britt from New Orleans, la

                      A:

                      The percentage level of our ingredients is proprietary information. While our Waterbright Illuminating Serum is rich in Vitamin C (e.g. Pomelo Extract), a "Vitamin C Serum" likely contains higher concentrations of Vitamin C. NOTE: Research has shown that Vitamin C concentrations as low as 0.6% provide antioxidant and anti-aging benefits to skin.
