As a self-proclaimed skin-care savant who struggles with acne-related hyperpigmentation, I was already a devoted member of the C E Ferulic serum fan club for its legendary brightening benefits. But its new sister serum, the Silymarin C F, packs the added punch of addressing both acne-prone AND oily complexions. The first magic ingredient? Silymarin. Also known as milk thistle extract, this powerhouse component helps with antioxidant protection and oil oxidation. The serum also contains a 0.5% concentration of salicylic acid to quell breakouts along with some of the aforementioned ferulic acid to stabilize vitamin C. In other words, it's a powerhouse cocktail of all the ingredients I could ever wish for in a single product.
Within a week of using it nightly, I was already noticing more luminous, even skin with fewer breakouts.
I'm not even exaggerating when I say that this is easily one of the most game-changing products for people like me, who deal with stubborn acne and hyperpigmentation.
Spending triple-digit figures on one beauty product is a lot, but hear me out: All too often, acne products tend to overpromise and underdeliver, and that just wasn't the case with Skinceuticals’ new product. I'm not even exaggerating when I say that this is easily one of the most game-changing products for people like me, who deal with stubborn acne and hyperpigmentation. Even if it doesn't earn a permanent step in your routine (even if you went through a bottle in two months, that would still amount to almost $1,000 annually), I'd definitely recommend this potent serum as a reset button to get problematic skin back on track.
