The answer is a resounding yes — at least, if we're to use Éminence's new Citrus & Kale serum as evidence. In addition to kale, it contains spinach, broccoli, avocado, lemon, and grapefruit. The brand claims this zesty spring salad of a serum can visibly brighten and lighten sun-damaged skin, prevent inflammation, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
So, what's it like in real life? The natural, organic product is more like a toner than a serum — it's light as water and absorbs quickly. A few drops applied to one of my hands made my skin instantly brighter and less splotchy than my other, untreated hand. Applied to my face, it's illuminating and soothing.
I already eat kale pretty constantly throughout the week, so incorporating this into my beauty routine feels like a natural next step. The green is still the darling of the healthy-eating world, and now it seems primed to take over your skin-care routine, too. And, if this serum is any indicator, that's only good news for our complexions.
Éminence Citrus & Kale Potent C+E Serum, $110, available June 1 at Éminence.
