description

-This revolutionary serum, jam packed with a potent antioxidant complex of l-ascorbic acid, ferulic acid and vitamin E, plus other formula-supportive enzymes and antioxidants, helps neutralize pollution, environmental stressors and the damaging effects of free radicals while replenishing lipids and visibly reducing the appearance of dark spots and wrinkles. -Uniquely formulated with pumpkin ferment extract and pomegranate enzyme, C-Firma™ enzymatically dissolves dead surface skin cells. -Sodium hyaluronate crosspolymer quickly penetrates skin and provides intense hydration. -The result is a noticeably diminished appearance of photo damage, replaced by incredible radiance and luminosity.

Not impressed by this serum. Luckily I bought a 15ml size to start testing. I did not use it for more than 2 days since the smell was so horrid.,I threw it away. Waste of money.
