It’s an AHA serum with a powerful blend of Lactic Acid and PhytoSpherixTM that helps exfoliates the skin, improves skin texture, revealing a fresh and revitalized complexion. “It promotes a healthy, bright and even skin tone and helps with cellular regeneration.”
Self Absorbed Facial Moisturizer
“This is really a hydrating and nourishing product,” says Kizovski. “It has phytoglycogen and Hyaluronic Acid, avocado oil and a ton of plant-derived extracts.” It provides lasting hydration, plumps the skin, and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The avocado oil helps to nourish and soothe the skin while Algae, Green Tea and Licorice Root Extracts work in unison to even skin tone, unveiling a radiant and glowing complexion.
20/20 Eye Cream
The eye cream includes PhytoSpherixTM and peptides to decrease puffiness and brighten the eye area. Combining the firming power of peptides, the hydrating power of PhytoSpherixTM and the brightening power of niacinamide visibly reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and the severity of dark circles. The eye cream also contains cucumber extract to decrease the appearance of puffiness.
