Prior to launching Hyper Skin, founder and beauty entrepreneur Desiree Verdejo saw a void to fill in the skincare and cosmetics industry regarding skincare solutions for Black women that work for all skin tones. Thus, when she debuted the label’s inaugural product in 2019, it quickly rose to acclaim as one of the best new product launches with much anticipation around what’s to follow.
The Hyper Even Brightening Dark Spot Vitamin C Serum boasts 15 percent Vitamin C that works against hyperpigmentation and aging as well as create a visibly brighter complexion. Other notable ingredients in the serum, which has been widely praised by many and won Byrdie’s 2021 Beauty Awards, include bearberry, licorice, and kojic acid. Formulated for morning use, you simply apply one to two pumps and follow with a moisturizer. To date, the serum has amassed a whopping thousand reviews—mostly positive—further cementing Hyper Skin as a skincare label to keep on your radar.
Earlier this year, Hyper Skin unveiled its second product since the brand’s launch two years ago with the Hyper Even Fade and Glow AHA Mask. The honey-hued mask, formulated with glycolic acid and mandelic acid, brightens dull skin and fades stubborn dark spots among other benefits. Available in a 50 ml container, the easy-to-apply formula is as simple as applying a dime-sized amount to your skin after cleansing. Once applied, leave on the skin for 10-15 minutes before rinsing thoroughly and patting dry before following up with your moisturizer of choice.
Moreover, ingredients such as salicylic acid—a BHA that unclogs pores and soothes inflammation—as well as sea buckthorn oil really stand out in the product. Others include turmeric extract for its anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties and papaya extract for its ability to naturally exfoliate and help fight free radicals. Meanwhile, Vitamin E and niacinamide (Vitamin B3) also join the list of key ingredients. Thus far, the Hyper Even Fade and Glow AHA Mask has amassed raving reviews with one reviewer stating that it made their skin feel “supple, nourished, and glowy.”
For anyone with acne and dark spots or skincare enthusiasts, Hyper Skin provides real results from real people with formulas focused on skin of color and powerful natural botanicals that work exceptionally well with the highs and lows of skin complexion.
