Modern Radiance Concentrate

Need a little more glow this winter? Look no further! La Bella Figura’s Modern Radiance Concentrate is the answer.
I’ve been using this high performance vitamin C in my daily skincare routine for quite a while now and I have to say I think I’m pretty hooked. It’s the natural beauty’s answer to the clinical vitamin C serums out there. Pre-greening I was a big fan of SkinMedica’s vitamin C as it was both fat soluble and water soluble. What’s I didn’t love is all of the junk that they put in it. LBF’s Modern Radiance Concentrate is even better than my old favorite. It has a healthy dose of vitamin C along with ferulic acid (not scary acid-  the collagen boosting kind) as well as a plethora of skin brightening ingredients and antioxidants. Seriously just look at this ingredient list:

Ingredients: Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice*, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut Fruit) Juice*, Opuntia Ficus (Barbary Fig) Seed oil*, Theobroma Grandiflorum (Cupuacu) Butter, Terminalia Ferdinandiana (Kakadu Plum) Cell Extract, Centella Asiatica (Gotu Kola) Extract*, Aronia Melanocarpa (Aronia Berry) Extract*, Hippophae Rhamnoides (Seabuckthorn Fruit) Oil CO2*, Ferulic Acid (Acid Derived From Plants), Glycrrhiza Glabra (Licorice Root) Extract*, Cucurbita Pepo (Pumpkin Seed) Extract, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose Flower) Extract, Olea Europea (Olive) Leaf Extract*, Helichrysum Stoechas Extract*, Malva Sylvestris (Mallow) Extract*, Bambusa Vulgaris (Bamboo) Extract, Persea Gratissima (Avocado Fruit) Extract*, Coffea Arabica (Green Coffee) Bean Oil, Jasminum Officinale (Jasmine Flower) Oil, Leuconostoc Ferment Filtrate (Radish Root) Extract, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Seed Oil CO2*, Daucus Carota Sativa (Cold Pressed Virgin Carrot) Seed Oil*, Zingiber Officinale (Fresh Ginger Root) Oil, Cymbopogan Martinii Motia (Palmarosa) Oil, Salix Alba (White Willow) Bark Extract*, Xanthan Gum (Non-GMO)*, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (Derived From Coconut), Vegetable Gylcerin (Non-GMO), Ethyl Alcohol (Derived From Non-GMO Corn)*

What I’ve noticed since adding it into my routine is that my skin is brighter and clearer. My tiny bits of pigmentation have faded nicely. And the icing on the cake is that in the past two months I’ve received more complements on my skin and I’m wearing less makeup! Even my mom asked what I did different! If it can pass the mom test it’s a total keeper in my routine.
So in a nutshell, is it expensive- yes.
Is it totally worth it for me – heck yes.
Karen & Victoria – please don’t ever stop making this. It’s a total gem!
