Skinceuticals is a brand you are definitely going to run into alot in this blog. I started researching this brand the moment I saw it on the shelves at my dermatologist’s office. Made in USA, Skinceuticals is used by dermatologists, plastic surgeons, and medi-spas for daily homecare and to complement aesthetic procedures. The brand’s story started long before the company’s founding in 1994, thanks to the pivotal research performed by Dr. Sheldon Pinnell. In the years since, they have continued to pave the way with breakthroughs that have changed the face of skin science. The product I’ll be reviewing today is A.G.E. Eye Complex, which is a correcting eye cream.
I’ve always had oily/combination skin my entire life, but recently it has been dry and dehydrated, which made me change my entire skin regimen. For those of you who have dry and dehydrated skin, know how annoying the winter months are. One particular hydrating serum that I absolutely love and cannot live without is Skinceutical’s Hydrating b5 gel. This serum is enriched with vitamin B5 and hyaluronic acid. Before I get into how awesome this product is, a little background on the active ingredients:
What is Hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a gel-like water holding molecule that is the space filler and cushioning agent in all mammals. It cushions joints, nerves, hydrates skin and hair, and fills the eye. Almost half of body’s hyaluronic acid is located in the collagen of the skin, where it provides moisture, plumpness, firmness and suppleness to the skin.
