This formula brightens and evens overall skin tone as it gives pesky hyperpigmented dark spots a one-way ticket to anywhere else but your skin.
15% Vitamin C + 3% Tranexamic Acid
FOR: skin so healthy, strong, and bright, you might call it smug.
The flexible, bouncy gel texture of this serum makes skin feel dewy and hydrated without looking like you glazed yourself like a cinnamon bun.
Active ingredients are our favorite power tools for a skincare routine that actually “does something.” But you wouldn’t use all your power tools at once because that would be really intense (and potentially disastrous). So if it’s bright, even-toned, hydrated, smooth, and healthy skin you’re after, you’d normally need to rotate multiple products with different actives to strip, slough, and rebuild your skin barrier, in a specific schedule that won’t further compromise your skin barrier. Sounds exhausting.
This serum formula contains a select group of antioxidants, acids, adaptogens, and biotechnologically-produced plant-based actives that when combined, work together to gently transform your skin into a high-performance machine.
Dullness, dryness, uneven tone and texture, fine lines, and environmental damage are all left in Sunnyside’s wake as it gets to work repairing and revitalizing your skin. Consider it your regimen’s renaissance.
- 15% Vitamin C Combo: Life is unpredictable enough without introducing unstable forms of Vitamin C to your face. Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate and 3-0-Ethyl-L-Ascorbic Acid are as effective and stable as their names are hard to say (so, a lot).
- 3% Tranexamic Acid: Three’s a charm, and for Tranexamic Acid it happens to be the magic (aka scientifically proven) percentage at which this acid effectively interrupts two skin pathways that lead to discoloration when used in conjunction with Vitamin C.
- 2% Niacinamide: Also known as Vitamin B3, Niacinamide helps to repair environmental and UV damage in skin while polishing up uneven tone and dullness. It even improves the appearance of enlarged pores.
- 2% MossCellTec: This active comes from biotechnologically-produced moss. Yes, it’s super moss that’s grown in a lab for the express purpose of doing what moss does best: surviving and thriving through anything. MossCellTec targets the nucleus of a skin cell, which contains your DNA programming (aka your “healthy skin manual”), strengthening them to defend against environmental stressors, climatic changes, and moisture loss for your most resilient skin in two weeks (two weeks!).
- Mushroom Medley: Mushrooms are really smart organisms, and they can do impressive things for your skin also. Snow (Tremella) Mushroom’s tiny molecules can hold up to 500x its weight in water to deliver hydration deep within your skin barrier. Chaga Mushroom’s antioxidant enzymes also aid in skin hydration while defending against inflammation that might further comprise your skin barrier.
- Glutathione: This potent antioxidant naturally occurs in your body and helps keep your cells in tip-top shape by boosting their energy and keeping them clear of toxins and free radicals. It helps repair cell damage, pigmentation, and inflammation, leaving brighter and more even-toned skin in its wake.
- 65% Emollient Base: To give your skin that bouncy “been drinking 8 glasses of water daily” feel, Aloe Leaf Juice, Jojoba, and Grapeseed oils make this serum deeply nourishing and moisturizing, with a gel-like texture that sinks into your skin. You could almost skip moisturizer but we’ll leave that decision up to you.

Returns & Exchanges
Once products leave the Socialite Beauty warehouse, all sales become final. Many products do not come with sanitary seals making it unsafe to put them back on the shelves. We want you as our customer to feel secure you're getting brand new, unused products from us. Because skin can take some time to adjust to new products as well as to detox from any changes, it is best to allow 2-3 weeks of use to see how your skin truly takes on new items. Sometimes a few uses alone is simply not enough time to let the new products get to work. If your product does have a seal and you would like to return it, please notify us via email if you will be returning a product you have purchased (email@example.com) and include images of the sealed product. Provide your invoice number and reason(s) for the return/exchange. Once merchandise has arrived back to us, we will issue a refund minus return shipping cost.

I bought this instead og my go-to C E Feurilic from SkinCeuticals just to try something new. I use this one before the Galilee Antioxidant Dewy Drop. I love the combination, and might have found a new go-to replacement for C E Feurilic
