Epidermal Repair sounds like a serious reparative product, and is recommended for skin compromised by cosmetic corrective procedures or harsh environmental influences. The star ingredients are beta-glucan and Centella asiatica, both good anti-irritants and antioxidants. This might be worth the expense if the aforementioned ingredients were front and center, but they’re not. In fact, they’re barely present. That leaves you with a lightweight, silicone-enhanced moisturizer for normal to dry skin that doesn’t have any edge for managing stressed or irritated skin. SkinCeuticals could (and should) have added a lot more to this product to make good on its claims. As is, several other less expensive moisturizers and serums best this formula.

Claims

Specifically formulated for skin compromised by cosmetic procedures ranging from microdermabrasion to laser resurfacing, as well as skin sensitized by retinoid therapy or harsh environmental aggressors. This therapeutic treatment combines beta glucan and centella asiatica to provide a protective veil for traumatized skin while facilitating the biological processes necessary to accelerate restoration of the skin's barrier. Epidermal Repair is clinically shown to greatly diminish redness and soothe irritated skin while the cosmetically elegant texture encourages daily use, especially during the critical healing period following rejuvenating procedures.

Brand Overview

SkinCeuticals At-A-Glance

With a strong presence in the professional (meaning spa and aesthetics) skincare market, SkinCeuticals has a mostly well-deserved reputation for producing serious-minded, research-driven products, several of which are centered on L-ascorbic acid (a form of vitamin C).

There are many good reasons to shop this line; it boasts a lineup up impressive vitamin C products, as well as some good retinol options and sunscreens. Even better is that the majority of its anti-aging products are packaged in containers that will protect their contents from light and air. Focusing on what Skinceuticals does best (which is serums, sunscreens, and specialty products) will be money well spent for visible results. The main drawbacks of this line are some products that contain fragrance ingredients, as well as potentially-drying alcohol, though they represent the minority of the brand’s offerings.
