It’s vitamin C, but supercharged. An weightless 5% vitamin C-powered moisturiser that to brighten and hydrate even the dullest of complexions.
Description

This weightless, gel-like moisturiser contains a high-performance 5% vitamin C complex for a radiant, lit-from-within glow, plus ferulic acid to boost the brightening power of vitamin C. Essential hydrators work to restore hydration, while skincare powerhouse ingredient niacinamide evens skin tone and helps to diminish pore size.

The brand-new vitamin C complex in our range contains a synergistic, potent blend of three stabilised forms of vitamin C, each with individual benefits. It is supported by other key ingredients such as ferulic acid to boost the effectiveness of the vitamin C, along with allantoin and niacinamide to replenish the skin barrier.

Why use a complex?

Vitamin C's pure form, ascorbic acid, is known to be unstable and highly susceptible to oxidation (resulting in it turning brown) via heat, light, air and water, which impacts its effectiveness. Using more stable derivatives of vitamin C in our formula ensures that rate of oxidation is slowed right down, meaning less discolouration and a longer shelf life, so your skin can get all the amazing benefits of vitamin C for longer.

How it works

5% vitamin C complex: A supercharged, innovative complex of 3 stabilised forms of vitamin C to ensure a more stable and effective brightening formula.

Niacinamide: Helps even skin tone.

Ferulic acid: A versatile antioxidant that boosts effectiveness of vitamin C.

How to use
WHEN
Step 3 of your skincare routine – moisturise.

HOW
Apply to the face and neck, morning and evening. For best results, store in the fridge to keep your vitamin C at its optimum stability.

ROUTINE
For best results, use as part of a full Vitamin C Fix routine:

Step 1: Cleanse using the Vitamin C Fix Cleanser
Step 2: Follow with the Vitamin C Fix Brightening Pads
Step 3: Apply the Vitamin C Fix Eye Cream 10%
Step 4: Use 2-3 drops of the Vitamin C Fix Concentrate
Step 5: Finish with the Vitamin C Fix Hybrid Gel Cream

Tips:

As well as being a brightening powerhouse, vitamin C also has anti-ageing benefits. It helps with production of collagen, which supports skin structure, resulting in a plumping effect. Using vitamin C and retinol together is a powerful way to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, but we don’t recommend using them together at the same time, so stick to one in the morning and the other at night; use the Vitamin C Fix Eye Cream 10% in your AM routine and the Retinol Fix Eye Treatment 2% in the PM.

Use SPF in the morning as the last step in your routine – we recommend our Illuminating SPF 30 as the final step in your routine. This SPF was specifically designed to protect and illuminate skin after using Vitamin C Fix.

The Science

Ascorbic acid – vitamin C's purest form – is hard to stabilise in an effective formula: when it comes into contact with heat, light, air and water, it starts to oxidise and form dehydroascorbic acid, which is not the active form of the molecule, meaning potency and antioxidant abilities have been compromised.

Our upgraded complex stabilises the formula, slowing the oxidation rate right down and making it less likely to destruct. It means we’ve been able to deliver a higher concentration of vitamin C without compromising stability and effectiveness. The higher concentration of vitamin C means that you’ll see brighter, more even-toned skin than ever before, and the stable formula means it’s long-lasting, both in terms of efficacy on skin and shelf-life duration.

Why you need it

Our next generation Vitamin C formula tackles multiple skin concerns in one. Whether you're looking to hydrate, fade marks or reduce signs of ageing, do it all while keeping your skin plumped and radiant.

The 5% Vitamin C Complex

  • Stay-C® 50

    Has a proven conversion into ascorbic acid - vitamin C's purest form - once it has penetrated the skin's surface.

  • L-VCG

    Is metabolised into ascorbic acid more gradually on contact with the skin compared to other derivatives, giving it a unique time-released effect - you'll experience the benefits for longer. It is also more resistant to discolouration, prolonging shelf life.

  • Specwhite VCE

    An ethered derivative, meaning it is both water-loving and oil-loving, which results in better skin penetration compared to pure ascorbic acid.

Lightweight texture

This innovative gel cream has a lightweight texture, which doesn't feel sticky or heavy.

Stabilised formula

A more stable formula means less chance of oxidation, which affects vitamin C's impact on skin. Our upgraded formula means a better concentration of vitamin C that doesn't compromise stability or effectiveness.

Brighter skin

Skin is left brighter and more even toned than ever before, with fine lines smoothed for a glowing, more youthful complexion.
