If you are looking for a new skin care brand to try may I recommend Sepai."Sepai has announced the launch of its new ELIXIR Line of Serums, available on Amazon's new Luxury Beauty Channel.

Each product comes with a Stabilised Vitamin C Booster (which accounts for 5% of the formula) to shake into the formula, meaning the skin directly absorbs the antioxidant powerhouse while it’s still at its most active; helping protect skin cells and structure, preventing premature ageing and UV-damage, and reducing lines and wrinkles."Prices £58-£62.
