Sunday Riley C.E.O. Rapid Flash Brightening Serum

This serum takes its name from the ingredients it's formulated with—vitamin C, vitamin E, and a blend of antioxidants—but also truly lives up to its C.E.O. title, working like a boss to brighten, tighten, and plump your complexion. With a potent 15% dose of an oil-soluble version of the brightening savior called tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate (a derivative of vitamin C), it addresses signs of aging and gives you a more even-toned complexion. In this format, it can penetrate deep and fast into your skin, so you get instant radiance. And it doesn't just make your skin look more refined and clearer thanks to saccharide isomerate extract and glycolic acid, it also reduces any redness or irritation with the help of phytosterols, so even sensitive types can use it.

Love this serum!!!!!
Sampled

I was blown away by this serum, when the sample was empty, I could tell a difference in my skin. I wish it was more affordable. Because it would definitely replace my current serums, I am using now.

Here’s the thing..

I have used a lot of brightening serums, and didn’t recognize any change so I decided to just use this one under my eyes (not thebrest of my face). I put it on every morning and night and within 2 weeks my under-circles were significantly lighter. I didn’t have to do the extra work of putting on under-eye makeup which was great. I don’t care to buy it for the price it is, but if my under-eye circles happen to become a problem again, I’ll definitely use this product again because it made me not look like a walking corpse anymore.

Effortless glow

This will make your skin look like you’re glowing but with the just woke up look. Looks very natural.

Clean but not dry
Sampled

This oil is good at cleansing my oily skin, all make up melted off and it left my skin super soft and bright, not dry at all. I quite like the smell.

Amazing Feel
Sampled

This serum left my skin feeling amazing. Not sure about the long-term benefits as I only used the sample so I am not sure it is worth the hefty price tag for the full size.

Great smell!
Sampled

I love the smell! It smells like an orange peel, really bright and fresh! I don't know if it really brightens or plumps but I did feel a tightening. Plus, it didn't make my face break out all crazy, so it's good for sensitive skin.

Silky and citrusy
Sampled

This is probably my favorite sample that I have received from Birchbox. I love the citrus orange scent. The lotion is soft and silky, goes on smoothly and easily. It leaves my skin soft as a baby's skin. Highly recommend.
