K-beauty fanatics, get excited: The perpetually sold-out Soko Glam x CosRx Triple C Lightning Liquid is back in stock. The Triple C Lightning Liquid is a product collaboration between Soko Glam founder, Charlotte Cho, and K-beauty brand CosRx, and after selling out within an hour of its debut in April, fans have had a hard time getting their hands on the brightening treatment. It’s been said that the serum has a nearly 10,000-person waitlist. But, as of today, the wait is over: the Soko Glam x CosRx Triple C Lightning Liquid is back on the market.
So, what puts the “lightning” in the Triple C Lightning Liquid? A large quantity of its hero ingredient, vitamin C. Inside the palm-size bottle contains a whopping 20.5 percent vitamin C (ascorbic acid) — one of the highest concentrations available on the market — in order to brighten, tighten, and reduce dark spots on skin. The serum is also formulated with 72 percent black chokeberry, which is an ingredient that helps stabilize the vitamin C.
Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that helps reduce skin inflammation and irregular pigmentation, as well as promotes healthy collagen production, Joshua Zeichner, the director of cosmetic and clinical research at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, previously told Allure. “Vitamin C is a key component to many skin brightening regimens, as it interferes with pigment production and keeps inflammation at bay. It may even help protect the skin from pre-cancerous changes from UV light exposure by neutralizing free radicals.”
Despite its intimidating moniker (Lightning Liquid sounds a little intense, no?), the serum is pretty easy to use. When you first start using it, simply add two to three drops of the vitamin C-packed serum to your daily moisturizer and slather the mixture onto your skin. If, after a few days, you’re feeling bolder (and your skin is feeling good), you can apply one to two drops directly to your skin. And although this treatment is recommended for nighttime use, if you happen to use it first thing in the morning, which is fine, just remember to slather on SPF before heading outdoors.
Nab your own Soko Glam x CosRx Triple C Lightning Liquid for $27 at sokoglam.com, but hurry. I’m sure this serum will fly off the shelves at — sorry, can’t resist — lightning speed.
