Vitamin C Serum Review

This Vitamin C serum is 20 percent Vitamin E and Hyaluronic Acid.  It's intention is to plump skin cells, protect and restore.  It is suggested that you apply using fingertips after cleansing and toning, then wait for it to absorb before moisturizing.

If you already have a strict skin regimen, it should be pretty easy to fit this in.  Since I'm usually a soap and water and run sort of girl, it took me awhile to get into the habit of using this daily.  If you do have a strict skin regimen, that means that you're conscious of your skin's needs and appearances and you'll definitely want to continue reading this.  If you're more like me, you'll still want to continue reading and see why you need to add this.

In the beginning, I was not impressed.  This is an odorless serum.  The first time that I used it, I was confused about using my fingertips for it.  As soon as the serum touched my face it was absorbed in.  I ended up putting nearly two full droppers onto my face before it finally stopped soaking it in.  It was as if my skin were a parched desert and I was just pouring water into it until it was saturated.  The next morning, I awoke to find a few blemishes and breakouts on my face, which disheartened me a bit.  

As I continued use, I noticed that I needed to use less and less each day.  The blemishes went away after a day or two.  I'm thinking it was my skin rebelling to me doing something different.  I also noticed a decrease in lines and wrinkles on my face.  My cheeks began to turn rosier.  I started to need less and less makeup.  My pores even began to shrink.

After continued use over a couple of weeks,I've noticed a huge change in my face.  I only use two drops of the serum per night.  My skin does look more plump, but not fat.  I have a healthier look about me. My complexion has greatly improved.  I've even had people comment that I look years younger and they want to know what I've been doing.  

I'll be honest.  I don't care if I look younger.  That isn't the selling point for me.  My skin is healthier and better nourished, but that isn't it either.  For me, it's the way my face feels for hours after using it. My skin feels a little tighter, but softer.  It sort of reminds me of when I was 17, that same feeling you'd get after doing a two hour facial.  It feels clean and smooth and fresh. It's a feeling that lasts all day.  

Though it may come across as a little expensive at nearly $25 per bottle, you have to take into account how long it lasts.  The bottle is 1 fluid ounce.  After using this for nearly a month, I've only gone through about one half an inch worth of liquid.  That $25 worth of serum should last me close to a year.  When you put it into perspective, it really is quite a bargain and quite inexpensive to look and feel younger and healthier.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
