Although the word acid may conjure up terrifying images (think: the Wicked Witch’s demise in The Wizard of Oz—“I’m meeeeeeelting!”), there’s nothing scary about the latest elixir from Dr. Dennis Gross’s results-driven skincare line. This powerful antiaging formula relies on ferulic acid, a potent antioxidant, to ward off the free radicals that cause premature aging.
How it Works
Made with naturally derived actives, the professional-grade formula combats uneven skin tone while softening fine lines. Plant-based ferulic acid protects against photoaging and boosts the effectiveness of the formula’s other ingredients, like powerhouse skin-renewer retinol, which helps to smooth the appearance of wrinkles and boost elasticity. Exotic bearberry extract spurs cell turnover to correct hyperpigmentation, while brightening licorice root and mulberry extracts fade dark spots. Even better, the formula is vegan and cruelty-free.
How to Use
To get the most out of every application, pour a small amount onto an enclosed cotton pad and smooth onto clean skin. Use daily as an all-over or spot treatment.
