Formulated with oil-soluble vitamin C—said to be 178 times more potent than its water-soluble counterpart—the Vitamin C Ceramide Capsules Radiance Renewal Serum promises a brighter and even-toned complexion and protection from free radicals, all within a biodegradable capsule.
Available at all Elizabeth Arden counters and online.
