Clinique Daily Booster with Pure Vitamin C


The Clinique Fresh-Pressed Booster is designed to be mixed with your daily moisturiser. Add a few drops both morning and night to brighten your skin while reducing hyperpigmentation. Vitamin C naturally degrades when it’s exposed to oxygen, so the clever airtight packaging means this formula maintains its power.

Dior Capture Youth Glow Booster Serum

Dior Youth


Containing glycolic acid and 100 times more concentration of vitamin C than an orange, this exfoliating serum will leave your complexion looking bright and radiant. Water-based and enriched with antioxidant iris, it's also very gentle, making it perfect for stressed-out skin.
