Overview

How moisturizing is it? Slightly moisturizing. Cellex-C Sensitive Skin Serum has a moisturizing rating of 0.5 out of 10.

Is it more humectant or occlusive? This product is purely humectant, but with a low Humectancy of 1.0 out of 10. It has zero Occlusivity as we didn't find any occlusive ingredients on the ingredient list.
Tip: Studies suggest that humectants alone do not moisturize the skin. We recommend applying a product with some occlusive ingredients after the use of this one.

What else is good about it? Cellex-C Sensitive Skin Serum is rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants are believed to reduce the oxidative stress caused by free radicals, thus preventing accelerated skin aging.
