What it is:
A refreshing, aqua-rich gel-cream moisturizer that hydrates and revitalizes the skin, promoting a look of resilience and vitality.
What it does:
Is your skin dehydrated? Dull? Oily or combination and struggling to control sebum secretion?
NARS exclusive Light Reflecting Complex™ works in synergy with Dynamic Aqua Technology, which helps to retain water in the upper layers of the skin, keeping it soft and replenished. Plumped with moisture, skin becomes supple; fine lines and wrinkles visibly soften. Wild thyme provides antioxidant protection as Japonicus root extract works to improve skin’s natural barrier, fortifying the skin against moisture loss. Beech Bud extract supports skin’s natural production of collagen while Sophora root extract inhibits the enzyme that breaks down elastin. Weightless to the touch, never sticky or filmy, it is also infused with Peony extract to help control surface oil and shine throughout the day. A soft matte finish helps bond makeup to the skin for fewer touch-ups, smoothing the way for seamless foundation and long-lasting brilliant color.
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
What else you need to know:
NARS Exclusive Light Reflecting Complex enhances skin’s luminosity, while Wild Thyme extract is known to be rich in protective antioxidant properties. To achieve luminous skin, it is vital to protect the skin against harsh free-radical damage. Free radicals are highly reactive chemicals produced by UVA and UVB rays, pollution, sun, and smoking that have the ability to damage the structure of all living cells, leading to premature aging. Topical antioxidants help the skin to protect itself against these harmful chemicals. Plankton extract is known for its cell metabolism benefits. To achieve luminous skin, it is also vital to boost cell energy, so skin cells are always performing at their optimal level. This product is dermatologist-tested; non-comedogenic; and free of synthetic fragrance, parabens, alcohol, and oil.
