Review of Rx For Brown Skin Exfoliating Serum

What We're Sweet On: A Serum That Makes Foundation Optional


Forget all those scrubs out of your kitchen cabinet, there's another type of facial exfoliator on the block: Rx for Brown Skin's Absolute Radiance Exfoliating Serum ($35). Developed by dermatologist Dr. Susan Taylor, the skin care line, including the serum, is formulated specifically for women with medium to dark skin tones. And as for this serum in particular, it brightens the complexion without beads or harsh granules. In just one week, it reveals a luminous complexion void of discoloration (but the best results are seen within six weeks).

The key ingredient is glycolic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid that removes dead skin cells. This gentle ingredient also helps remedy acne, while hyaluronic acid locks in moisture. Just remember to wear sunscreen on top of this product because the acidic components increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun. Finally, apply foundation — but when you discover a more even and beautified skin tone, you may opt to go nude.
