Dull, Anti-ageing

Key Ingredients:

  1. Fermented Black Tea

Rich in antioxidants to protect the skin against free radical damage. It also brightens the complexion and improves skin elasticity.

  1. Trehalose

A humectant and moisturising agent that has been found to be even more hydrating than Hyaluronic acid as it draws water from the environment preventing cell damage.

  1. Dynalift™(Aqua, Sodium Polystyrene Sulfonate, Sorghum Bicolor Stalk Juice and Glycerin)

A patented complex which minimises pore size, improves firmness of the skin and provides a radiant glow to the skin. It forms a stretching film on the skin  to tighten skin.
