I’ve previously written that I’m a devotee of Topix Replenix CF serum, which contains one of the highest concentrations (90%) of epigallocatechin 3-gallate (EGCG) available as well as caffeine, which tightens skin. EGCG is the active antioxidant ingredient in green tea, which not only has numerous studies backing its efficacy, but also has been shown to be suitable for all skin types.
The Topix Replenix Power of Three is a triple threat, with the antioxidant resveratrol. According to a study from the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology, resveratrol demonstrates intracellular antioxidative properties in normal human skin fibroblasts in vitro and has significant promise as a chemotherapeutic agent.
For many who are using a prescription acne medication or a retinoid, this cream just might be the answer to the peeling nightmares (it was for me). This was originally recommended to me by a friend who had rosacea and found this cream to work miracles on her skin. I had just started using a retinoid and while my skin was irritated, I thought this would be too gentle and not moisturizing enough. However, the Power of Three serum and cream are rapid-absorbing formulations in a hyaluronic acid base, which absorbs quickly yet is suitable for all skin types. Moreover, the packaging is excellent and a little of the product goes a long way without it feeling greasy.
