Science is not my strong suit. (I nearly failed not one, but two college science requirements.) But I’m a total geek when it comes to skincare, and I love picking experts’ brains about ingredients and formulations. I’m currently obsessed with Sircuit Cosmeceuticals, a CA-based line that I learned about from Exhale Spa expert Caitlin Conn.
The brand is different for a few reasons. First off, they use chiral technology to ensure that their ingredients are as effective as possible (don’t know what chiral is? I didn’t either—see what I found out). Secondly, everything is made without fillers and in small batches, which ensures extra-concentrated, extra-fresh products. Finally, their products are designed to get results without, how shall we say, freaking skin out. As in, their Savior Cleanser has the right amount of salicylic acid and lactic acid to clear up blemishes without drying skin, and their Youth Accelerator Peel strips away dull cells without triggering redness.
Needless to say, Sircuit is now a permanent part of my skincare regimen. And it can be part of yours too! We’re running an amazing sweepstakes with them—enter to win a personalized consultation and a customized regimen worth $500. Seriously, what are you waiting for? Go on, go!
