Phyto-C is known for its Vitamin C line, which banishes unsightly blemishes and dark spots while creating an even skin tone. After all, it was the founder — Dr. Mostafa Omar — who invented topical Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid), so he knows a thing or two about skincare. (The brand even has a patent on some of their formulations.)
The Phyto-C Icy Blue moisturizing gel that cools, hydrates, and soothes your skin is a favorite among Beauty editors. ($48.) It goes on light and absorbs quickly, leaving a gentle cooling feeling (that’s the menthol.) The superstar products are the HA (Hyaluronic Acid) and Vitamin B5 which help your skin absorb and keep moisture.
Can you imagine putting this on after a hot day in the sun? (After wearing sunscreen, of course.) We’re taking this to Plam Springs this weekend for a refreshing boost to our skin after a day by the pool.
You can use it alone or with your regular moisturizer, which it will help activate. Win-win.
