This Louis Widmer serum has several strong points:
- Niacinamide, known as vitamin B3, is a proven ingredient when it comes to age spots. It’s anti-ageing too.
- Vitamin C, present in the form of Ascorbyl Glucoside, gradually delivers its SKIN LIGHTENING properties to your skin. Vitamin C also STIMULATES collagen production, meaning FIRMER skin.
- Hexylresorcinol is an antiseptic as well as a lightening ingredient. A 0.5 concentration has been proven to work even better than a standard dermatological 2 percent concentration of hydroquinone (the latter will be less friendly to your skin and you’ll need a doctor’s prescription).
- Resveratrol is a POWERFUL anti-oxidant, meaning CELL PROTECTION and anti-ageing at the same time.
Coupled with some vitamin E and a few moisture binders, this serum has a lot to say for itself.
You could try this product in case you’re looking to combine an age-spot treatment with an anti-ageing skincare. When you start getting a few WRINKLES and have spotted some age spots too. This one is a multitasker.
The texture is light, weightless and absorbs quickly.No sticky feeling. You’ll see results after a few months of (continuous) use. Widmer advises a 2 times a day application. I use it off and on and see results. Don’t forget SPF during daytime !
Positive points: good ingredients, multitasker.
Weak points: none.
