As many of you already know, we’re not huge Vitamin C people because it’s kind of a pain to use, but we think we found a winner. ▫️ ▪️ L-Ascorbic Acid is the purest form of Vit C, but it is also highly unstable and potentially irritating to the skin, especially when used with chemical exfoliators. One of our favorite derivatives of Vit C is Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, a lipid-soluble, deeper-penetrating, highly stable form, which also happens to be the only derivative that works for our skin. ▫️ ▪️ AOS sent over their 35% Vitamin C Collagen Rebuilding Serum ($118), which features 25% Ethylated L-Ascorbic Acid (optimal concentration is 15-25%) and 10% Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate. It also contains two of the strongest antioxidants we know and love: Superoxide Dismutase and Glutathione, which are free radical fighters that help reduce UV and pollution damage resulting in accelerated aging, extended hyperpigmentation, etc. Glutathione is also a tyrosinase inhibitor, which means that it can partially inhibit the melanin production process on its own, preventing hyperpigmentation. This formula is completely anhydrous (waterless), so it’s able to absorb as deep into the skin as Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate is able to.▫️ ▪️ So what have we noticed? Sarah has used this twice daily for a few weeks now and noticed pretty fast skin lightening, but no “collagen rebuilding” quite yet. This claim speaks more to the fact that these ingredients will help strengthen and promote collagen production over time, rather than immediately induce production, so don’t expect this to be Botox in a bottle (but then again, nothing safe is!). Sarah has never been able to use LAA without sensitizing her skin, such as the Cosrx Triple C Lightning Serum which has been sitting in our refrigerator for a year now, but thanks to this potent, yet as-gentle-as-possible blend, she can! ▫️ ▪️PS: Safiyah did purge with this, but she always does with LAA. ▫️ ▪️
What exactly does one do with a @glossier scarf? Not sure, but it makes an awesome photo prop. Also, can we talk about how amazing this mini skincare set is? The mini BDCs are the cutest, and I need Glossier to release them all in mini form. PS. I fully believe that @juanskindiary’s Glossier merch edits influenced the addition of the new headband.
