Serum containing two vitamins easily absorbed by skin

- ALEESHA HARRIS

What it is: A serum from the Canadian brand AlumierMD that targets signs of aging and is suitable for all skin types.

This “potent antioxidan­t serum” features vitamin C powder, kept separate from the serum until it’s ready for use. That way, the powerful USP vitamin C (its most potent form) remains more stable — and therefore, more effective. The product is housed in three 15 mL bottles to further ensure the stability of the vitamin C.

The serum also features vitamin E to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The two vitamins together, also aim to fight free radicals, according to a product news release.

As with all AlumierMD products, this serum is free of parabens, sulfates, petrolatum

and dyes and isn’t tested on animals.

What we say: Our tester was first introduced to this product through a facial practition­er and was pleased with the immediate, skin-brightenin­g effects it had on her skin.

At the recommenda­tion of the practition­er (this dermbased brand is only available for purchase through skincare profession­als and dermatolog­ist clinics), she added the serum to her own, at-home skin regime, applying it post-cleansing and toning in the morning.

A few drops of the potion is all it takes to cover the full face and the silky potion absorbs well into the skin. Used daily, the product made skin look noticeably more smooth and bright. Where to get it: Medical clinics, spas and alumiermd. com. What it will cost you: $179.
