⭐ 5% Vitamin C (THD Ascorbate)
👍 Rich Hydrating Cream
If you're looking for a good vitamin C cream, the Sunday Riley C.E.O. Rich Hydration Cream is one of the most popular ones right now with 5% THD Ascorbate (a stable oil-based vitamin C derivative that we discussed earlier under Peter Thomas Roth Potent-C Power Serum).
This low level of vitamin C is suitable for improving your skin's overall radiance, but not for dark spots, age spots, sun damage, or melasma issues. Have a look at my earlier product recommendations if any of those are your primary skin concerns.
Sunday Riley also included:
One drawback of this product is there's many types of alcohol present, including Alcohol Denat., which is known to be drying and potentially damaging to your skin (source: Paula's Choice).
The overall formulation is also a bit too complicated for my liking with a total of 48 ingredients (compare that with only 11 ingredients in SkinCeuticals Serum 10 AOX+).
Based on user feedback, the C.E.O. Rich Hydration Cream is perfect for those with dry to normal skin as it provides a ton of hydration for more supple and nourished-looking skin. Those with oily skin, however, said the product felt too greasy and sat on the surface rather than being absorbed.
Some other comments from users included:
My Verdict: If you want to add an ultra-hydrating vitamin C cream to your daily routine, or in combination with a vitamin C serum for double the goodness, the Sunday Riley C.E.O. Cream is a great option with 5% THD Ascorbate and a nourishing formula of fruit extracts & flower waxes.Shop Now
