Kojie.San Super Serum

One innovation simply isn't enough for Kojie.San! Meet their Super Serum, the first with kojic acid! While most serums out in the market contain only Niacinamide, Vitamin C, and or Hyaluronic Acid, Kojie.San Super Serum has all these in one with the addition of its potent kojic acid. The combination of these four powerful ingredients will help you achieve a dewy, glassy, supercharged glow. Kojie.San Super Serum is made more powerful and effective by Zero Pigment Light Technology, which allows kojic acid to penetrate the skin’s layers and reduce melanin production, which causes skin darkening. Niacinamide is known to minimize the appearance of enlarged pores, help prevent moisture loss, and even out skin tone. Vitamin C brightens skin, while Hyaluronic Acid helps maintain skin health and promote elasticity.

Paula's Choice RESIST Triple Active Total Repair Serum

While we're on the topic of serums, one that's disruptive of the ageing process is the newest from international skincare brand Paula's Choice. This new formula is clinically proven to visibly improve lines, discoloration, and firmness in as little as one week with its potent blend of hexylresorcinol, retinoid, plus niacinamide. The 0.3% retinyl propionate visibly firms and smooths the skin, the 5% niacinamide evens out skin tone and enhances the efficacy of retinoids, and the 0.4% hexylresorcinol targets and fades dark spots that can develop on the skin. Best used twice a day after cleansing, toning, and exfoliating, apply an even layer to the face and neck. Since the product contains retinol, it's best to finish the skincare routine off with SPF30+ or higher.
