Peter Thomas Roth Camu Camu Power C Moisturizer
In winter , Peter Thomas Roth products have been among my go to's. For the past two years it was Retinol Fusion AM & PM. They were, and are wonderful. But there is always new to try out and brightening is at the top of to do list after summer so I was looking to try the brand's newest Camu Camu Power C Cream.
Camu Camu is am Amazonian Berry and superfruit that is said to provide 30 times more Vitamin C per ounce than an orange.
This cream is a thick formula but not too heavy for my oilier skin, which is more normal in the cooler temps. I was afraid it might be too much at first but it hasn't been at all. It absorbs quickly and smells amazing, very orange/citrus. I've been using it for a week, so not a long test period overall, but enough to see some definite improvement.
My skin is brighter , softer , and clearer if you get what I mean. It looks smoother as well. Now mind you , my skin is generally in good shape but I do have some hyperpigmentation from summer and summers past even though I work the SPF. I am seeing this fade more.
Ingredients besides Camu Camu include Avocado Oil, Lactic Acid, Vitamins A & E, Ginger, Lemon Peel and Grape Seed extracts.
The container has a push down top, where you get a small amount of cream with each push and keep the rest away from light and fingers, and is 1.7 oz. There is also a serum.
