Sunday Riley is one of those cult-favorite brands that continues to wow with every new launch. Case in point: the brand's new C.E.O. C + E Antioxidant Protect + Repair Moisturizer ($65). Every product embodies their slogan, "Powered by Science, Balanced by Botanicals," and this second-generation tub of cream (the first was the hyaluronic acid–packed Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream, $65) is just that.
The new cream, full of vitamin C, is richer than its predecessor, making it an essential for getting that hydration skin craves this time of year. But of course, the main benefit is the luxe cream's ability to combat free radicals with a powerful dose antioxidants in the formula. It boasts 5% of the lipid-soluble form of tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, aka the best of the best when it comes to vitamin C and said to be less harsh than other forms of the ingredient. Additionally, it contains lime pearl extract, which is a natural source of AHA for a gentle exfoliation that allows the goodness of the vitamin C to sink in and penetrate the skin. But there's more to come, because according to Allure, the zesty-scented, skin-saving moisturizer is only the first of the vitamin C line to come our way, so get ready for some more exciting news from Sunday Riley.
