Not bad...so good...I used products that claim to be natural and gentle but are not....The only thing that kind of bugs me about this product is the scent, as well, I haven't used it enough yet to figure out if it breaks me out (typically I go through a slight purge when I use vitamin C serums then my skin settles) so I'm just waiting on that, but so far I really like it a lot!
Which skin type is it good for?
What it is:
A super-potent vitamin C day serum that is packed with a powerful antioxidant complex, essential nutrients, and fruit enzymes that all work together to firm and brighten the appearance of skin.
- Uneven skin tone
- Loss of firmness and elasticity
- Dullness and uneven texture
If you want to know more…
This revolutionary serum is jam-packed with a potent antioxidant complex of 15 percent l-ascorbic acid, one-half percent ferulic acid, and one percent vitamin E, and other formula-supportive enzymes that help neutralize pollution, environmental stressors, and the damaging effects of free radicals over time. This formula helps to replenish lipids and visibly reduce the appearance of dark spots and wrinkles after applying regularly. Uniquely formulated with pumpkin ferment extract and pomegranate enzyme, C-Firma™ enzymatically dissolves dead surface skin cells. Sodium hyaluronate crosspolymer quickly sinks into skin and provides ultimate hydration. The result is a noticeably diminished appearance of photo damage, replaced by incredible radiance and luminosity.
What else you need to know:
C-Firma™ has a reservoir effect, which means it will stay active on skin for up to 72 hours and cannot be washed or rubbed off. Its pH level is 3.3, which Drunk Elephant believes is the key to a non-irritating, effective formulation that delivers real results. This product is 100 percent free of essential oils and fragrance.
Drunk Elephant is committed to using only ingredients that either directly benefit the skin’s health or support the integrity and effectiveness of their formulations. They never take into account an ingredient’s synthetic or natural status, but instead choose based on its biocompatibility. You won’t find what Drunk Elephant calls the "Suspicious 6" in their products (essential oils, drying alcohols, silicones, chemical screens, fragrance/dyes, and SLS,) making them, in their opinion, appropriate for all skin. They believe that these six ubiquitous ingredients are at the root of almost every skin issue we see. When formulating the products, they focus on pH levels and safety, always making sure that the active ingredients are at efficacious levels. This is the Drunk Elephant difference.
Drunk Elephant is a supporter of IEF (International Elephant Foundation) and is cruelty-free.
This product is an Allure Best of Beauty award winner.
