Active form of vitamin C

I like the concept of this product as it is L-ascorbic acid that is the most effective form of vitamin C and it is dry, so no worries about possible oxidizing. The powder dissolves easily (I usually mix it with TO Marine Hyaluronics) and it really helps to brighten the skin.

Best Use: Reduce Dullness, Anti-Aging

Great vitamin C

This is a very good product for the price. Pure vitamin C in the form of powder thus no worries about oxidizing or that sort of thing typical for readymade vitamin C serums. I use it together with my hyaluronic acid serum and they work great together. I do feel some stinging sensation for a couple of seconds but it's ok.

Best Use: Anti-Aging

great price for what it is

rhe price is good but this really hydrated my face and if you used too much then it can be quite bad for your face, but otherwise i think this evened my skin out alot and definitely worth trying out. this can help even skin texture out and help the red parts on your face fade

Not a good alternative to other formulations

I bought this and struggled to use it, I did various research as to what to mix it with and it never felt nice on my skin and I’m not convinced the product was “active”. Vitamin C is an area that I believe you should invest your money in (as much as you’re able to) and buy a good formulation. Would not recommend.

Not recommend

I mixed it with my toner and used it on the morning. The vc oxidized very fast. No visible result while using the product. I don't recommend to use it on the face, my skin tingles while put on the VC. It made my skin looks dull because it oxidized so fast.
