Fantastic product

Love this so much! While it feels a bit strange going on - slightly gritty texture and a warming sensation, I have found a real difference in my skin since using it. My skin is brighter, more even in tone and smoother. I noticed when I stopped using it for a few weeks. Now I'm on my third bottle.

Gave me congestion

I used this serum daily for approximately 2 months and i found i kept getting small bumps under my skin, plus really congested pores. I've now taken a break from using this serum (while keeping the rest of my routine the same) and my skin is much clearer. This was generally a very unpleasant serum to use. I would not recommend.

Good for dry skin

I really like the texture of this - it is oily but it is a plus for me because it means you only need a few drops and it helps with retaining moisture on my skin. This is a really affordable vitamin c, and it brightens skin. I've had my bottle for a few months now and with everyday use I've only used 1/4 of the bottle

Use at night only

I would recommend using this serum at night only as it doesn't wear well under make-up. It's definitely more of an oil texture than "oil-serum" - meaning it doesn't absorb very quickly at all and leaves a film of moisture. This is a great product if you're after an affordable dose of Vitamin C

Best Use: Uneven Skin Tone, Hydration, Anti-Pollution, Hyperpigmentation, Brightening, Anti-Aging

Great for dry skin

For years my morning routine starts with vitamin C, so I like to try all forms and brands. Unfortunately this one is hard to manage. I see vitamin C benefits but propanediol just stay on my skin. It’s fine in winter time when my skin is dryer, but bad in summer...

Best Use: Flakiness, Uneven Skin Tone, Hyperpigmentation, Brightening
