The quiet buzz that once surrounded Mad Hippie and their line of skin enhancing natural actives is now a pretty loud roar. Their $34 antioxidant C Serum (known as the less expensive alternative to SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic $100+ iconic version), makes ‘Best Of’ lists among Beauty Editors regularly because of how effective it is using such a clean formulation. Same goes for this Exfoliating Serum ($35) I’ve been using for about a month that’s filled with 16 actives like Glycolic, Lactic, White Tea, Caffeine, and others knows to fade dark spots and brighten skin.
Now I know that my melasma will be a tough thing to beat and it ebbs and flows with hormones and sun so I’m hopeful that this will at least help to keep my other pigment issues in check while getting my dull skin glowing. So far I’ve noticed some fading of old breakout scars and improved clarity, enough to make me stick with it and see what else it can tackle.
