They’ll add serious *zing* to your complexion

Whether you’re feeling run-down from the cool, wintery weather (yep, that’s definitely us!) or just need a dose of TLC for your skin, we’ve got you covered. This spring, we’re looking forward to adding a brightening product - such as something in serum or moisturiser form - to our routines to counteract dullness and lacklustre skin. Run, don’t walk.
L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Red Cream
It may seem counterintuitive to use a red-tinted cream such as L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Red Cream on your face to brighten your complexion, but trust us, it works. The rouge pigments offer a healthy-looking glow all over once applied (yep, even for all skin tones), while red ginseng works to fight signs of fatigue such as dullness, and advanced pro-retinol can address bumpy texture.
Lancȏme Visionnaire Skin Solutions™ Vitamin C 15%
You can’t go past a heavy hit of vitamin C to brighten your skin all over. Lancȏme Visionnaire Skin Solutions™ Vitamin C 15% comes in two tiny 10mL bottles to ensure potency, and is designed to be used in the morning as your serum. Just don’t forget to follow with some moisturiser and sunscreen afterwards.
Marc Jacobs Beauty Youthquake Hydra-full Retexturizing Gel Crème
Infused with enzymatic pineapple water to smooth your skin and sodium hyaluronate to intensely hydrate, Marc Jacobs Beauty Youthquake Hydra-full Retexturizing Gel Crème is a lightweight gel cream that’s like a big drink of water for your skin, and your complexion will thank you for it.
La Roche-Posay Redermic Pure Vitamin C10 Serum
Loaded with vitamin C to fade pigmentation, salicylic acid to improve texture and Neurosensine™ to soothe your skin, La Roche-Posay Redermic Pure Vitamin C10 Serum is a top choice when it comes to improving skin tone all over.
Intraceuticals Retouch Highlight Serum
Intraceuticals Retouch Highlight Serum may look like a makeup highlighter to strobe with, but it’s far from it. In fact, the formula is enriched with peptides and hyaluronic acid to improve moisture levels and make you glow all over, like you’re lit from within. Pop this under your moisturiser in the morning, or even use it to highlight your cheekbones after foundation.
