Serum is the powerhouse product of skincare, so it shouldn’t be surprising they can help you reach your glow goals. Just like there are formulas designed to amp up hydration and even out your tone, there are special little bottles made to boost your skin’s radiance. Most are reparative formulas that work with moisturizing, restorative ingredients to bring your complexion to the highest level of health, and they can be worn underneath your makeup or applied before you go to bed.

This new serum from Caudalie uses a blend of antioxidants from grape polyphenols, vitamin E (another antioxidant powerhouse), and vitamin C to keep your skin’s tone intact and to keep your complexion protected from free radicals. The result? Glow, baby, glow!
