Whenever we learn about a newly-released beauty product that boasts of the ability to firm and refresh the skin, we find ourselves feverishly in search of the juicy details that make it work—especially when the mystery is in the mist.
Case in point: Skincare brand Sunday Riley recently announced the release of its newest skincare product, Pink Drink Firming Resurfacing Essence ($48), and we couldn’t wait to learn more about the mysterious formula that looks similar to pink lemonade, smells like watermelon, and promises to help make your skin look years younger.
We spoke Sunday Riley herself for the exclusive details on her eponymous line's Pink Drink, which the brand is touting as a supercharged essence. “Essences are that critical step between the cleanse phase and the treatment phase of your beauty routine," Riley says. "This is where you have an opportunity to balance and prep your skin."
Formulated to follow your skin washing routine, the Pink Drink mist promises to be as simple as spritzing your face and watching it glow, according to Sunday.
“Pink Drink helps to balance the skin’s natural microbiome while creating a more youthful texture with two firming peptides,” she continues. “It also supports the skin’s moisture barrier with ceramides.”
- Firming Peptides (Acetyl Tetrapeptide-9 and Acetyl Tetrapeptide-11): Work synergistically to gently resurface and increase the look of skin firmness.
- Ceramides: Support the skin’s natural moisture barrier.
So, what else is in the firming spray that has it flying off the shelves? Fermented honey supports the skin’s natural microbiome. Chlorella, kelp, and seawater are designed to fight the look of surface redness by supporting the skin’s natural microbiome. Pink yeast filtrate is rich in minerals, amino acids, and vitamins to nourish the skin (so yes, the pink is not for aesthetics and actually has a purpose). Last, but certainly not least, epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) fights the visible aging effects from pollution and oxidative stress.
