Kylie Skin products are sold on the brand's website and at third-party online retailers like Ulta and Nordstrom. They're also available in bundles.

This serum is formulated with vitamin C, camellia oleifera leaf extract and glycerin to brighten dull skin. The formula is free from parabens, sulphates and animal product testing. It's also free from synthetic fragrance, alcohol and colourants.

The serum is a light-weight serum that delivers hydration while also improving skin tone and texture. It's formulated with four layers of hyaluronic acid, rice bran water, niacinamide, apple fruit extract and peptides. It's also said to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve firmness and even out skin tone and texture.

Like many other Vitamin C serums, it's a highly unstable ingredient, which is why most of them come in clear packaging to protect the product from oxidation. However, it contains a fat-soluble form of the Vitamin called tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, which is thought to be able to penetrate the skin better than most other water-soluble forms. It's also believed that this form of the vitamin is converted to ascorbic acid once inside the skin. It's also enriched with vitamin E (great for hyperpigmentation) and ferulic acid, which is great for fighting free radical damage caused by UV rays and pollution.

The product has been praised by everyone from The Cut's Kathleen Hou to skin-care vloggers and Opening Ceremony employees for its glow-inducing properties. It's also said to be a dupe for the cult-favorite Skinceuticals CE Ferulic serum, which has been recommended by Russak for its simplicity.
