Brighten With CC Me Serum With Vitamin C + Niacinamide

The base layer of radiant summer skin starts with a couple pumps of CC Me Serum With Vitamin C + Niacinamide. Our award-winning daytime serum gives skin an instant boost of luminosity while also targeting hyperpigmentation and dark spots. 

It contains two kinds of Vitamin C: 3-O-Ethyl Ascorbic Acid (also known as Ethylated Ascorbic Acid) and Ascorbyl Glucoside. 3-O-Ethyl Ascorbic Acid works to both brighten the skin and protect against free radicals and other environmental stressors, while Ascorbyl Glucoside easily penetrates skin to brighten and improve tone.

CC Me Serum also contains Niacinamide, which is composed of two different components: Vitamin B3, also known as niacin, and nicotinic acid. The ingredient is great for brightening skin and helps to reduce redness that occurs due to acne, rosacea, eczema, and other inflammatory skin conditions. It also helps reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles.

Hydrate With Cloud Dew Gel Cream Moisturizer

During the hotter months of the year, you won’t want a thick moisturizer that feels heavy on the skin. Instead, opt for a lightweight formulation like that of our Cloud Dew Gel Cream Moisturizer. This best-selling hydrator not only helps sweaty summer skin attract and retain moisture but it also gives skin a youthful plump thanks to three types of Hyaluronic Acid. 

Cloud Dew’s Hyaluronic Acid Complex penetrates deeply into the skin's surface to provide lasting, skin-plumping hydration that can last up to 72 hours. It also brings moisture to the top of your skin to help even out fine lines and wrinkles, as well as help it look plumper and brighter. 

The moisturizer also contains Amino Acids, which help your skin with collagen and elastin production. Amino Acids also have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties to help support your skin barrier. And finally, Pineapple Enzyme packs Cloud Dew with vitamins C and E to brighten and protect your skin throughout the day.

Squalane gives ShadeDrops its signature hydrating glow, leaving skin looking and feeling its softest, smoothest, and most hydrated. And finally, a blend of Vitamin E and Ethyl Ferulate form the Antioxidant Complex in our SPF to protect the skin against free radicals and other environmental stressors.
