1. Illuminate visibly brightens skin & reduces the look of wrinkles.
Using a world-class formula with naturally-derived ingredients, Illuminate BC+ Brightening Serum is designed to reveal skin that looks bright and even with a silky-smooth feel. But don't take our word for it. In a Consumer Perception Survey, 100% of participants said their skin appears more visibly bright, smooth, and radiant, and 84% of participants said their complexion appears more even-toned after using Illuminate.*
2. Illuminate is gentle enough to use every day, morning and night.
Unlike retinol, which is infamous for its potentially harsh side effects like peeling, visible irritation, and even cracked skin, Illuminate BC+ Brightening Serum is ultra-potent but gentle enough to use morning and night. Plus, it easily layers with other skincare products so it can be used as part of a comprehensive routine for your dewy, revitalized complexion.
3. Illuminate is designed for mature skin, and everyone else.
As we age, the needs of our skin change. Over time, our skin tends to produce less hyaluronic acid, which can contribute to visible signs of premature aging and loss of firmness. Illuminate BC+ Brightening Serum is designed with mature skin in mind. Multi-weight hyaluronic acid is known to visibly plump skin for a smooth, firm look. Vitamin C is known for its ability to minimize the look of dark spots. And Bakuchiol, the magical retinol-alternative, has been studied for its ability to reduce the look of wrinkles. While this super serum is designed for mature skin, it's also suitable for nearly all skin tones, and skin types.
