light up - brightening vitamin C booster

£15.00

the light up booster is a modern-day miracle worker.

here’s the deal: we wanted to bring a vitamin C packed booster to mix with your favourite creams and serums, to skyrocket their effects.

but after doing more research on ascorbic acid in its dissolvable form for skincare, the fancy word for vitamin C, it turns out the oxidation of ascorbic acid is the same oxidation that turns copper green, apples brown, and metal to rust.

and just like you don't want to eat brown apples, you don't want oxidized vitamin C in your products, or on your skin. plus we don’t want to sell an ingredient that we know doesn’t work after two weeks (and yes, other people do!).

the alternative? sea buckthorn, the key ingredient in our super packed vitamin C booster.

I read a fancy paper saying that sea buckthorn is the richest source of vitamin C, with ascorbic acid content of up to 2500 mg%. that’s like, a lot.

so if you’re looking for a vitamin C booster that, I don’t know, really works, then light up is your man. packed with anti-oxidants, light up will help your skin look refreshed and lit (I had to go for the cheesy pun).

ingredients 

phytosqualane (olive squalane), sea buckthorn.

how to use

our boosters are like supplements for your skin. you can add them to your daily regimen as standalone products or mix them with other products to improve their performance. use light up anytime of day. mix with serums, creams or masks, and apply to face and neck. or, apply 2-3 drops directly to your skin.

allow to absorb 2-3 min before applying makeup.

suggested routine

1. magic eraser (instead of wipes!)

3. glow the f*ck up toner

4. light up

5. super serum

Lovely

I think this is great and I'm seeing improvements in dark spots, especially on my hands. A little goes a long way too as you only need a few drops

Scars be gone!

I get really bad hormonal break outs and the moist oily skin in existence, honestly you could fry an egg on my face on a sunny day…
Anyway, it’s been particularly bad lately as my hormones and I have had a big falling out which unfortunately leaves me with red swollen cystic spots that despite resisting the urge to pop them they often tend to explode on their own (yuck!) this leaves me with stubborn red marks that linger around for weeks. Since using the light up vit C booster I’ve noticed these pesky red marks heal and fade 10 times quicker than before and my skin tone is a lot more even and bright, yay!

As you can see in the video the texture is light, think oil serum hybrid texture. It’s non greasy and rubs in nicely, leaving your skin feeling very soft and plump (don’t you just love the word plump?)
I’m super happy with this product and I’m sure you will be too. Peace!

Brilliant!

Such a great product. It seemed so great, I kept one for myself and had to order more for the person whose birthday it is! And I’m glad I did.
Can’t wait to try the oil when it’s back in stock. Prompt dispatch and delivery too 👍🏼

The best!!!!!

I ordered this the other week and I’m already in love! It’s amazing for my dry skin, leaving it feeling highly refreshed. I highly recommend.

Vitamin C Serum

I don’t usually have much luck with vitamin c serums and after trying a few and breaking out, I thought I’d give this a go. I have spots and hyperpigmentation and unlike most other products I’ve tried which contain vitamin c, this one doesn’t break me out! It leaves a lovely glow and although oily at first, it soaks into the skin really nicely. I’ve found it pairs well with all of my other products, including actives, and I’ve had no negative reaction which is great!!
Look at the glow!
