If you’re looking to brighten up your complexion, a vitamin-C serum is a good place to start, since the antioxidant does everything from fading dark marks to fighting free radicals to diminishing fine lines and wrinkles. This duo from Ole Henriksen includes two vitamin-C infused products: a color-correcting eye cream and an illuminating face primer.
Ole Henriksen’s Banana Bright+ Eye Crème is a longtime Strategist favorite because it “neutralizes free-radical damage, calms inflammation, and blocks the production of abnormal pigmentation to brighten under-eye circles,” explains Joshua Zeichner, the director of cosmetic and clinical research in dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital. And according to skin-care obsessive and Strategist contributor Rio Viera-Newton, the cream also helps under-eye concealer stay put longer. Ole Henriksen’s sitewide 30 percent off sale ends Monday, April 10, so don’t dillydally.
