Sunday Riley, A name that many skin care fanatics treasure and love because of her incomparable formulas and unique concept of lotions and potions. At the age of 12, Sunday Riley got her first ever wrinkle cream (yes, at 12), later on to study chemistry at The University of Texas, the rest is history.
Launched in 2009, Sunday Riley is renowned for her exquisite line of high-tech skin care, combining pure botanical ingredients and science, Sunday Riley is dedicated to truly make a difference to people’s skin. Talk about being a #bossbabe
Now, Sunday Riley created the most stabilised form of vitamin-c that works like no other form on earth (this is serious stuff!)
tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate (THD Ascorbate for short, well how Sunday Riley likes to call it), a lipid-soluble form of vitamin-c, like human skin, this stabilise-form of vitamin-c can remain effective even in open air or water. Pretty cool right?
More powerful than any other vitamin-c usually found in other skin care creams, this 5% tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate penetrates much deeper into the skin, promoting collagen production while allowing you to fully enjoy the true experience and benefits of vitamin-c.
Now I’ve given you a little lesson about the star ingredient, let’s get down to the cream itself.
With Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream being the first moisturiser from Sunday Riley (have you tried the tidal cream?), when the news got out about Sunday’s upcoming C.E.O. lineup, mega fans of the beloved brand were literally jumping out of their seats.
Sublime and luxury-to-touch, the Sunday Riley C.E.O. C+E antioxidant protect + repair moisturiser is like no other. The texture is light for the product not to feel heavy in warmer summer months but moisturising enough to comfort skin in winter. You couldn’t ask for a better-formulated product Speaking of luxury creams, here’s a night cream you don’t want to miss out on here.
I wouldn’t call the texture sticky or tacky, but it does have a light ‘gel mask’ feel to it which some users may or may not like at first, although I’m certain you will soon warm to its unique whipped, dreamy texture.
Seriously, the results are instantly visible to the naked eye, skin appeared brighter, more awake and luminous. You could totally have a make-up free day by wearing this alone (go on, I dare you). I’ve been keeping the cream refrigerated as I’ve preferred the density of its cold, fresh texture. Either way, you’re going to love it.
Introducing a new wave of exfoliation, lime pearl extract from caviar lime gently removes dead skin cells. Kakadu plum adds an extra oomph of vitamin c while providing skin with a natural, healthy shine and glow. Exopolysaccharides, protects the skin from visible effects of pollution, (even the particles found in smog!), now how cool is that!
The use of lemon and tangerine oil provides a welcoming, nose-tantalising scent that lingers until slowing fading away from the skin. Japanese lemon citrus junos fruit yuzu extract helps shield against the UV rays while revitalising and firming skin. I wouldn’t solely rely on this as your daily sunscreen, as this doesn’t contain SPF. For all day lightweight protection try Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Sun Lotion SPF 30.
