Thrilled by that extra hour of daylight and beyond ecstatic that Spring arrived yesterday, I am officially pushing the season by incorporating the latest Sunday Riley Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream into my daily skincare regimen. Ready to freshen up my complexion after months of the outdoor cold / indoor heat mix, this remarkable new gel moisturizer is my entry point into lighter textures, clean scents, and supreme hydration.
Known for some of the most innovative and high performing skincare products on the market, Sunday Riley delivers a truly universal formula in Tidal. This all-skin-types friendly moisturizer not only nails the luxurious gel texture (because how often do gels feel sticky and don’t fully absorb?!), it is studded with complexion perfecting ingredients that address issues from dryness through hyperpigmentation to uneven skin tone.
Excelling at long lasting hydration, Tidal is loaded with Hyaluronic Acid, which immediately plumps tired and sallow looking skin. Featuring Alpha-Arbutin, a pigment correcting compound (much safer than Hydroquinone FYI) and Papain to gently and effectively resurface cell buildup, this feather light gel is a real multi-facted gem. Loaded with botanicals such as Tamarind, Bird of Paradise Flower, Neem, Horse Chestnut, and Cucumber Extracts, this Sunday Riley moisturizer soothes, repairs, and provides superb antioxidant protection.
If you’re familiar with the brand’s superhero Luna Night Oil, you will notice the similarity in scent. In Tidal, the slightly herbal aroma has a pleasant, floral note. Quite subtle, it absolutely does not linger, making it a great pick for even those with sensitive skin. Full disclosure: ‘fragrance’ is indeed present in the ingredient deck. And speaking of Luna, if you do use this magical Retinol potion, you will layer it on under Tidal and follow with all other treatment oils. Recommended for both AM and PM routines, my combination skin loves it at night–after a peel pad or any active serum.
Those looking to upgrade their skincare routine and boost the ‘glow from within’ factor will adore Tidal Brightening Water Enzyme Cream. Fast acting and quickly absorbent, it turns dull and dehydrated into visibly brighter, dewy looking skin. At $65, it’s actually an affordable option within the Sunday Riley lineup. Highly recommended as it’s bound to last months.
