SkinCeuticals Phyto Corrective Masque
Fan of the cult-favorite Phyto Corrective Gel? This new masque packs twice the cooling, calming and hydrating power of the original formula, in a soothing new gel-masque formula. Optimal for sensitive or problematic skin, this light masque contains botanical extracts with anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties to soothe, hyaluronic acid to hydrate, and a new calming dipeptide to reduce the perception of heat sensitivity. Ideal for treating skin post-laser or post-sunburn, or for soothing reactivity after any other aggressors. Clinical studies showed an average 4oF reduction in skin surface temperature after just 15 minutes of use, immediately post-Fraxel.

SkinCeuticals Blemish + Age Defense
A targeted, oil-free approach to treating adult acne and signs of aging, this 1st-to-market acid blend combines 2% dioic acid with an alpha- and beta-hydroxy acid formulation designed to prevent acne, minimize hyperpigmentation, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Specifically created for the concerns of the acne-prone adult, it goes beyond treating imperfections to additionally address signs of aging. Salicylic acid and LHA combat blemishes; glycolic and citric acids treat fine lines, wrinkles, and roughness; and dioic acid fights acne, reduces excess sebum production, and prevents hyperpigmentation that can cause skin to appear prematurely aged. This highly effective, efficient treatment is ideal for acne-prone, aging skin.
