The holiday season is the perfect time to stock up on new skincare products. With every brand releasing gift sets featuring their best-sellers, you can try new things without breaking the bank. Here are my favourites:
DR DENNIS GROSS FERULIC PLUS RETINOL DISCOVERY KIT ($65.00)
The set contains Ferulic Acid + Retinol Brightening Solution (0.5 oz.), Ferulic + Retinol Triple Correction Eye Serum (0.25 oz.), and Ferulic + Retinol Fibroblast Anti-Aging Moisturizer (0.5 oz.). Apart from ferulic acid and retinol, a potent anti-aging combination, all products also contain a good mix of other antioxidants to prevent premature aging. My only gripe is that the moisturizer is packaged in a jar, which won’t keep the antioxidants stable and effective for long, but still the set is worth getting just for the other two products. Available at Dermstore.
MEDICELL LABS BRIGHTENING SET ($49.95)
This set features Brightening AHA Facial Pads (60 count), Brightening Foaming Face Wash (6 fl. oz.), and Instant Brightening Peel (2 fl. oz.). They all contains AHAs, such as Glycolic Acid and Lactic Acid, that exfoliate skin, leaving it smoother, brighter, and more even-toned, and a mix of antioxidants that help prevent the signs of aging. Available at Dermstore.
