We’re seeing a big trend toward skinimalism and skin streaming right now, as people look for ways to condense their routines—we’re all so busy! Known for its efficacious nutritional supplements, The Nue Co. wanted to create a topical version that helps people cut back on using multiple serums by combining essential active ingredients into one formula. Enter The Nue Co. THE PILL Topical Skin Supplement, which acts kind of like a multivitamin for your skin. Here’s why it’s so good.

The Benefits:

Though it packs a punch, it’s still very lightweight and feels good on my skin, which surprised me a bit the first time I used it. So what’s inside? Six exfoliating alphahydroxy acids—glycolic, lactic, mandelic, malic, tartaric, and citric acids—hydrating hyaluronic acid, depuffing caffeine, and calming tiger grass. Licorice root extract was also included, which has both brightening and anti-inflammatory benefits. This potent mix leaves skin smoother, tighter and more even in just three minutes, the brand claims, while also boosting collagen and skin elasticity over time.

In an independent consumer trial, 89 percent of participants reported tighter skin in three minutes; 95 percent reported smoother skin in three minutes; 87 percent reported more hydrated skin in six weeks; and 94 percent reported more radiant skin in six weeks.

I also love that it’s great for all skin types (even sensitive and acne-prone), and it’s free of synthetic fragrances. However, it does still have a little bit of a scent, which the brand says is from one of the ingredients, radish root ferment filtrate. This is a natural preservative that helps balance the serum’s pH without irritating the skin. All of the ingredients in the formula have been sourced sustainably and ethically, and the bottle is made of recyclable glass.

How to Use It:

Apply a couple pumps of serum to your face and neck (it’s not sticky and feels really nice), and let it absorb for a minute before applying moisturizer on top. If you fall in love with the serum, you can also subscribe to receive it monthly at a 10-percent discount ($77) and you can pause or cancel anytime.
