Preventative measures are always better than correcting measures, well – in skincare at least.
I’d rather protect and prevent my skin from damages now, than have to correct damages later
on. It’s like planning ahead.
I first used Skinceuticals’ Phloretin CF about 2 years ago when I was introduced to the brand. I
went through two consecutive bottles – applying a couple drops after cleansing morning and
evening. In smoggy London I knew my skin’s barrier was being reinforced and protected from
free radicals (smoke, pollution, stress) and other external aggressions that can lead to early
ageing, uneven skin tone and imperfections. However, I always felt it was a little too much for
my overly sensitive skin.
I’ve continued using the Retexturing Activator, Ultra Facial Defense and Phyto Corrective Gel 
(the best, best thing for aggravated sensitive skin) since, but  the Phloretin CF slipped off the
list. Recently, I tried the gel version of this serum – as my skin responds well to gels, especially
 if they’re strong – and have been pleasantly surprised. Giving me the same outcome – along
with firmer, brighter skin thanks to a dose of Vitamin C. Plus, it works on combination,
normal and sensitive skin. The Phloretin CF Gel is an all round winner that certainly won’t
be dropping out of my skincare regime anytime soon.
Please note: Ultra Defense SPF 50 is not available in Australia, but the 
SPF 30 is.
