Skin for beauties over 45 with Prai Beauty Potent-C Duo

Over the past six months, Marcia and I have been raving about PRAI Beauty, a luxury skin care line specifically made for women over the age of 45. We love this line because the products are affordable, cruelty free, and PRAI Beauty promises that their formulas are effective and show results on mature skin in seven days. PRAI Beauty also donates a portion of every sale to helping animals, a cause that is near and dear to our hearts since we both have pets who are like children to us.  I have been impressed with every product I’ve tried so far, especially their signature product, the Ageless Throat and Decolletage Cream.  But I am on a vitamin C kick lately, and I’ve been testing the Potent-C Duo, a combo set that includes a serum and a moisturizer.

The POTENT-C DUO ($69.96 sale price, was $94.90) includes two products – serum drops and moisturizer cream – and the ingredients in both are age-fighting superstars.  It’s very different to see copper paired with vitamin C, but that’s what Prai Beauty has done.  Copper is an antioxidant that attacks multiple signs of aging, fighting free radicals and reducing wrinkles.  It’s not as thoroughly researched as vitamin C, but the existing research is extremely positive.  Of course, vitamin C is definitely a superhero in the skin care ingredient world. It does so many things that are particularly helpful for mature skin:  keeps skin younger looking by increasing cell turnover; plumps up skin by stimulating collagen synthesis; inhibits melanin production which results in a brighter skin tone; fights free radicals and prevents UV damage; acts as an anti-inflammatory.

At our age, what’s not to like about vitamin C?  Also, the Prai Beauty products contain Vitamin C Ester, which is a derivative of vitamin C.  Vitamin C Ester is a fusion of natural vitamin C and palm oil, and is actually better because it’s more stabilized than natural vitamin C.

Prai Beauty Potent-C Power Drops with Copper

The Potent-C Duo starts with the Power Drops.  This is a lovely serum in an opaque bottle (important for ensuring the efficacy of the ingredients) with a dropper.  The serum is applied to clean skin every morning and evening.  The Power Drops do lots of great things for your skin:

Helps skin appear firmer
Helps brighten the look of your skin
Helps diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles
Contains extract of a fermentation product of saccharomyces in the presence of copper ions
Helps fight free radicals

Prai Beauty Potent-C Power Drops with Copper

The Power Drops smell yummy – like a freshly cut orange.  The scent doesn’t last long, which actually bums me out because it smells so good.  It takes a minute or so to fully sink in, and then skin is noticeably softer and smoother.  The serum alone boosts collagen, moisturizes, and evens out skin tone.  For a double dose of copper and Vitamin C Ester, you follow the Potent-C Power Drops with Copper with the Potent-C Power Creme with Copper.

Prai Beauty Potent-C Power Creme with Copper

 

The Potent-C Power Creme is a thick, snow-white cream that somehow smells even more delicious than the Power Drops.  This skin care cream has such an amazing texture…soft, billowy alabaster clouds of incredible skin softening power.  If I could, I would climb inside the jar and never come out.  Potent-C Power Creme with Copper does great things for your skin:

Helps skin appear firmer
Helps brighten the look of your skin
Helps diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles
Contains extract of a fermentation product of saccharomyces in the presence of copper ions
Helps fight free radicals

Skin is soft after applying the Power Drops, but it’s incredible after also applying the Power Creme.  This is a Shea-based moisturizer that also has other interesting hydrators like Rosa Mochata Seed Oil and skin soothers like Zingiber Cassumunar Root Oil.  The Power Creme is fantastic, and paired with the Power Drops your skin has no choice but to look younger!

The Prai Beauty Potent-C Duo checks every box for a terrific vitamin C treat for skin, including affordability.  You can find this and other Prai Beauty products online at praibeauty.com as well as on hsn.com.  – Lisa
