Sun damage? Acne scarring? Melasma?

This serum provides a 1-2 punch for brightening the skin and reducing of hyperpigmentation from sun damage, acne scarring, melasma or aging.

  • Tranexamic acid works to reduce and remove any excess pigmentation in the skin caused by scarring and sun damage.
  • Arbutin works to reduce overall hyperpigmentation and generally brightens the skin. 

While tranexamic acid and arbutin have similar properties in reducing hyperpigmentation, their effectiveness has earned them popularity in the skincare market. Together, these two will combat hyperpigmentation and brighten your skin. Peptides add anti-aging properties, making this a great all-around serum.

key ingredients

tranexamic acid

Similar to hydroquinone with less side effects. Blocks transfer of pigment in skin. Fades discoloration, brightens skin, reduces the appearance of acne scars. Generally, tranexamic acid is safe for all skin types. Those with super sensitive skin or eczema should do a test on the inside of the wrist before use, just to be safe. Ideally, tranexamic acid-containing products would be applied twice a day, but some suggest starting with one application per day to see how it reacts with your skin. Works well with Vitamin C, SPF, hyaluronic acid, retinol.

arbutin

Lightens dark spots, lessens the appearance of acne scars, helps even out skin tone. Arbutin is generally safe for all skin types. Arbutin can be used twice a day. It is safe to apply on clean skin with other creams and serums. It can also be used in the summer since it does not make skin more sensitive to the sun. Works well with Vitamin C and AHAs. While there are no known negative interactions with other skincare ingredients, heat can degrade the effectiveness of arbutin.

niacinamide

Also known as Vitamin B3. Brightening, prevents signs of aging, reduces acne. In general, anyone who wants their skin to be bright or prevent aging. You can use it in both morning and evening. Vitamin B3 works well with everything.

licorice extract

Skin brightener. Inhibits the production of an enzyme needed to produce melanin (pigment) in the skin, helps remove excess melanin, has anti-inflammatory benefits. Anyone looking to reap the spot-fading, skin tone-evening benefits, as well as those looking to soothe irritated skin. Good option for pregnant people looking for a safe way to treat melasma, unlike hydroquinone which cannot be used by pregnant people. Because of its main benefits, it's often mixed with other antioxidants and skin brighteners, such as niacinamide and vitamin C.

Your new best friend!

If you want brighter and healthier looking skin, the illuminate serum will be your best friend. A little of the product goes a long way and easy (and lightly scented) to wear under your favorite moisturizer. I found that i was wearing mostly in the morning with my routine, but you can definitely do it with your evening routine too. Really easy to add a serum to your daily routine - I should know - I’m a busy mom of 2, but still have 10 seconds to add in my new favorite serum.

A decent serum

I like this serum, but it's not the one I reach for the most. I prefer ones with simpler ingredients.

My skin feels incredibly supple!

My skin tends to be extremely dry approaching the height of winter time. With the use of the new serum ahead of time in the fall, I was able to keep my skin feeling supple and not peeling due to dryness. The serum has worked wonders in keep my face hydrated 🌟
