New products are constantly landing on my desk, all touting the latest and greatest technology, boasting the newest and trendiest ingredient and all of them promising to be the miracle skin solution that I have been searching for. I’ve been in the beauty business for a while and our site carries over 28,000 different products, so to say that I am jaded when it comes to beauty products is an understatement. I know the kinds of products I like—no-fuss, minimal steps—and stick with those products, unless of course something amazing and FREE winds up on my desk because, aside from being jaded, I’m cheap. Which is why, despite years of hearing how amazing it is, I have never tried the life-changing serum that is SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic. At $157.00, it isn’t the cheapest antioxidant serum out there, but my coworkers—and just about every beauty editor I have ever met—swear on their Clarasonic that this little bottle is the answer to anti-aging. Actually, I remember reading a post over a year ago on Glamour.com from one of their beauty editors. TSA would not let her take her C E Ferulic through security despite it being within the carry-on guidelines. Her options were either to throw it out and make her flight or check her bag and take a later flight. She, a beauty editor who has every product at her disposal, opted to check her bag and miss her flight rather than toss the serum. Even after reading that, I could not bring myself to purchase it.
Finally, a few weeks ago, a brand new (FREE) bottle of C E Ferulic landed on my desk and let me tell you: Oh. My. Gosh. There is a reason it has 345 5-star reviews and wins every beauty award there is. This stuff is liquid gold. After just two weeks of using it, I feel like I discovered the fountain of youth. My skin looks so much smoother and brighter, I am not constantly staring at my pores, and it even has helped a few acne scars heal! The instructions say to use 4-5 drops on your face and neck, so what I do is use the dropper to drop the product directly on my face so as to not accidently waste any of the product. Anyone who sees me doing this—using the dropper directly on my face instead of my fingertips like a normal person—would probably think I’m a weirdo, but there are very special ingredients in there that cannot be wasted! This super serum uses 15% pure L-ascorbic acid (vitamin C), 1% alpha tocopherol (vitamin E) and ferulic acid to diminish and prevent visible signs of aging. It also neutralizes free radicals, shields against UV damage, enhances collagen production and conditions and brightens the skin. Basically it does everything.
I know not everyone has a job where bottles of miracle products show up on her desk, so DermStore is giving you a chance to have a mini-miracle bottle show up on your doorstep!
