Eminence Organics Citrus & Kale Potent C+E Serum provides a potent dose of Vitamin C (16%) that is stabilized by botanically derived ferulic acid to deliver optimal antioxidant benefits and increase collagen production. Vitamin E and leafy greens such as kale and spinach provide additional protection to the Vitamin C blend while healing and repairing the skin for improved skin tone and elasticity, The lipid base of the formulation means that these ingredients, as well as the collagen boosting, hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid are easily absorbed into the skin. Prevent free radical damage and reduce inflammation with this skin-perfecting super serum that is gentle enough for all skin types.
47% reduction in the appearance of free radical damage in just 3 hours*
*As evaluated by the reduction in UV induced reactive oxygen species (ROS) in human ex vivo skin after 3 hour application with a sunscreen product (versus applying a sunscreen product alone). Premature signs of skin aging can be attributed to ROS (a type of free radical).

Full disclosure, my favorite eye cream is the Marine Flower Peptide; I use the Marine Flower Peptide night cream (also the moisturizer of choice on particularly cold or blustery days); and was expecting to be thrilled with the Marine Flower Peptide Serum. I wasn't. The texture is a bit thicker-feeling and sticky.
I've sampled a couple of the serums and ultimately went with the Citrus & Kale. There is just a hint of a fresh scent. It is light to the touch, spreading easily in your palms to gently sweep across the face. The "finish" is clean and I moisturize directly after. I've been using it for just under two weeks now, so uncertain as to any visibly discernible benefit (I feel that I look a bit more radiant if that counts) but I am certain of how the product feels for me - which often delivers much of the well-being boost we seek in our routines.
I do intend to try the Rosehip Triple C+E Firming Oil as another point of comparison.
Seriously important part of my skincare regime. I ran out and can tell a big difference in the absorbtion of my moisturizer both day and night…
I used it for one week. Absorbs quickly Hope to see smoother and glowing skin.
Smells nice, absorbs so quick, lightweight and my skin is drinking it up. Using it for about a week and a half and I can see a huge difference in my skin.
It faded the freckles I got over the summer.
