We are on a vitamin C kick. Not just the chewable kind or the type you can gulp back with or without pulp. We’re talking about Bondi Sands Gold’n Hour Vitamin C Serum.
Gently effective, the serum’s namesake vitamin works hard to make our facial skin appear luminous…and more. Afterall, the citrus-derived antioxidant is renowned for its multiple dermal benefits. The Australian brand has mix-mastered in 10 per cent of the capital C, to protect and repair our skin from stress, UV light, pollution, forced heat and air conditioning, dirt and grime. It simultaneously reduces sunspots, dark patches and acne marks, while evening out our skin’s pigmentation. And it helps with collagen production so keeps us looking young. Well, younger. Either way, it’s a win-win.
Additionally, the serum’s formula is loaded with kakadu plum to help prevent and eliminate fine lines and wrinkles and to plump up our skin and improve elasticity. A helping of licorice root lightens things up, literally, as it’s an anti-inflammatory that reduces redness and swelling to decrease hyperpigmentation. Plus, each little drop has been dermatologically tested, so its suitable for even the most sensitive skin. It won’t clog our pores or irritate our face either, as its non-comedogenic and fragrance free. We can use it any time, but prefer to rub it on at nighttime, after we’ve washed our face and before we apply our night cream.
Bondi Sands Gold’n Hour Vitamin C Serum, $21.99 for 30 ml, available at Shoppers Drug Mart.
