4 VITAMIN C FAVES 💕 Mini Reviews

thatskincarejunkie
Vit C should be the most commonly purchased skincare serum. There are so many reasons why a Vitamin C serum is important to use and it's basically a cure-all beauty product. Most serums help with sun damage, fine lines, acne scars, under eye bags, free-radicals and antioxidants. These are the 4 serums I own and love! I wanted to make a post about each of these in case you need help finding the right one. I received @thrivecausemetics Liquid Light Therapy as PR in April (I believe). I can not obsess enough over it. This one is 100% my favorite one I've tried, there is just something about the texture and consistency that feels so good ($59). I love this because it brightens the skin with red and blue light therapy to stimulate collage production and dramatically reduce wrinkles and reveal clear skin @summerfridays CC Me ($64) is next up on my list of faves. This one is also formulated with squalane to boost hydration while sealing in moisture and a peptide complex to help improve with elasticity and firmness. I find that this serum as well as the next one I am going to talk about are really good at brightening dull skin or if you have a lot of hyperpigmentation and use these twice a day, I do find that it truly helps combat it. I love @farmacybeauty lately! I am obsessed. I had a sample of the Very Cherry Bright 15% Clean Vitamin C Serum and once I finished I was really reaching for more, so I caved and purchased a full size ($62) I find this one to be an interesting formula because it has 4 forms of Vitamin C. They use Acerola Cherry Extract which is one of the richest sources of NATURAL vitamin C to known to reduce signs of aging. If we want to talk about funky formulas, nothing could beat @volitionbeauty Strawberry-C Serum ($42). This formula is powered by Strawberry Fruit & Seed Extract to help brighten dull skin as well as unclogging pores and remove excess oil. This was the first full sized Vitamin C I purchased, mainly because of the reviews and the price! Although I no longer reach for this one as much, I do find if you want a great started serum or you aren't looking to spend a lot - this one does the job!

I will definitely repurchase it!
Volition is a brand that caught my attention recently. It doesn't contain allergenic ingredients and is friendly to those with acne-prone and sensitive skin.👍 First, their serum. VOLITION - Strawberry-C Brightening Serum It absorbs quickly and is not greasy at all. It is very refreshing and is suitable for oily skin types. But after I bought it home and used it for a while, I found some faults: It's a bit sticky when I apply too much and it started balling up when I used other products after using it.😢 Its vitamin C concentration is not high so I'll use other vitamin C powders with it. Their celery green cream VOLITION - Celery Green Cream with Hyaluronic Acid + Peptideshas a good reputation online. I've been using it for a while now and I highly recommend it. I find the texture just as refreshing as the name and it's not greasy at all. It's also super moisturizing, which is perfect for my skin. I will definitely repurchase it! 😍

My intensely hydrating morning skincare routine!
My morning (am) skincare routine!! 🌿Skin type- my skin type is very dry in the winter but pretty normal in the summer! My skin is never oily! My face tends to get some redness, but my skin isn’t acne prone at all! 🌿My morning skincare routine- the first thing I use in the morning is cleanser! My favorite one for the morning is the olehenrikson truth juice cleanser! This smells exactly like oranges and is super fresh, and really helps to wake me up in the mornings! It is very brightening which is great for before I do my makeup, but it also leaves my skin super moisturized and didn’t leave it striped! the next product I use is an essence mist! My favorite essence mist is the Saturday skin daily dew hydrating essence mist! This is a very refreshing and hydrating mist! This helps to deliver moisture over and under makeup which I love for my dry skin! The third product I use is serum! My favorite morning serum is the volition beauty strawberry serum! This serum helps to brighten my face with also giving it a dewy glow that I love! And it does all of that while also moisturizing my skin as well, it is very hydrating and helps clear dry spots on my face as well! The next product I use is eye cream! My favorite morning eye cream is the Saturday skin wide awake brightening eye cream! This eye cream is very hydrating, and also illuminates and refreshes the eye area all without striping my under eyes moisture which is awesome! The final product that I use in the morning is moisturizer! I love the fresh vitamin c glow moisturizer for the morning so much! It’s a very lightweight moisturizer that still carries lots of moisture which is super helpful before putting on a full face of makeup! It awakens skin for a daily dose of glow but keeping true to its hydrating properties, which is exactly would I need for my dry skin! 🌿how I discovered my morning routine- I kinda just slowly started to discover amazing products that worked super well for my dry skin! After talking with a bunch of friends and people on social media, I had lots of recommendations of products for dry skin! I would always read reviews on products and one day I had an amazing routine that worked miracles on my skin for the morning time! 🌿how long have I been using this am routine- I have been using this routine for about 8 months now and my experience couldn’t be better, it is absolutely amazing for my dry skin friends!

Cherry Treasure
FARMACY - Very Cherry Bright 15% Clean Vitamin C Serum with Acerola Cherry Pros: Worth. Every. Penny. Every time I use this serum my skin just looks so glowy and HEALTHY, which for a person battling a decade of hormonal acne and scarring is a huge feat. You only need one pump for your entire face since it has a true serum consistency, which means a little goes a long way. I love wearing this alone in the morning, or as a primer because it plays so well with all of my makeup and I never have to worry about pilling. It DOES smell like cherries, but actual cherries rather than a synthetic sickly sweet cherry scent. It leaves your face slightly tacky, but not uncomfortably so. The price tag is hefty (in my opinion), but it’s worth every penny. This is a product I see using for years and years to come.

Protecting Your Skin
🌼 I have combo skin leaning more dry (probably because I live in Southern California which is essentially a coastal desert and also full of smog and sun so I need all the protection I can get) 🌼 My skin is currently in a pretty good place where it falls more in the normal range but I do still get occasional breakouts and bouts of oiliness and dryness 🌼 Here’s some of my favorite products for protecting my skin: 🌼 Krave Beauty Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser: This is a great affordable gel cleanser that’s packed with antioxidants. Anything which Matcha in it is going to be packed with antioxidants. Hemp is also a great ingredient for keeping the skin soothed and hydrated. I like to use this as a morning cleanse or a second evening cleanse. 🌼 Youth to the People Suberberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask: This stuff is magic. It contains Maqui Berry which is actually the most antioxidant rich fruit in the world as well as vitamin C and moisturizing Squalane. I use this at night after my moisturizer and it leaves my skin feeling so soft and bright. My favorite mask of all time. 🌼 Farmacy Very Cherry Bright Serum: This is an awesome vitamin C serum to protect your skin during the day from pollutants, UV rays, blue light, etc. I really like this for my combo skin because it’s a lightweight gel that contains four different types of hyaluronic acid and keeps my skin hydrated and plump but not oily or sticky. I use this every morning after my toners and before oils/moisturizers. 🌼 Purito Green Level Safe Sun: Never forget sunscreen. It’s the absolute most important product you can use to protect your skin. I love this because it’s affordable, lightweight, and doesn’t leave a white cast. I apply this after moisturizer in the mornings (and don’t forget to reapply every 2 hours)

1oz $65 i purchased this product after falling in love with the banana bright eye cream and before that the cold plunge mask from the same brand. this serum is vitamin c, hyaluronic acid, that work together to combat acne, firm & hydrate the skin, and reduce wrinkles, pores, and dark spots. this stuff makes your skin glow !!! my dull skin loves this and i always get compliments that i’m glowing when I use it! i have dry skin so this stuff is amazing. i’ve used other serums, some are nice, but none that hydrate, firm, and brighten my face like this does. been using this for about a month so still in the trail phase but love it so far, i use it after a light moisturizer in the morning, it is also vegan and cruelty free though Ole is a high end brand it’s priced for how much you get OLE HENRIKSEN - Banana Bright Vitamin C Serum

The best gl🍯w!

Quoted via the sephora site: “What it is: A three-in-one night serum that resurfaces, hydrates, and clarifies dull skin while you sleep, formulated with a 14 percent AHA/BHA/gentle flower acid blend. Skin Type: Normal, Dry, Combination, and Oily Skincare Concerns: Pores, Fine Lines and Wrinkles, and Loss of Firmness and Elasticity Highlighted Ingredients: - AHA/BHA/Flower Acid Blend 14%: Exfoliates dead skin cells, targets hyperpigmentation, and helps reduce the appearance of pores, fine lines, and wrinkles, helps reduce the appearance of pores, and moisturizes. - Hyaluronic Acid: Hydrates and plumps the look of skin by drawing water to the skin, helping to prevent moisture loss. - Proprietary Honey Blend: Known for its soothing and humectant properties, this special honey provides skin-loving moisture plus antioxidants.” My thoughts 💭 This stuff is so good. So so good. Definitely worth paying $58 for 1oz. You don’t have to use it often so it’ll last you awhile! It leaves your face glowing in the morning and it doesn’t leave you with any weird residue or anything. It smells like honey, is gentle (stings slightly), and absorbs nicely. I love this product. Would recommend. FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow Serum

A new highlight in my nighttim
A new highlight in my nighttime routine is this kate Somerville skincare Retinol + Vitamin C Power serum. I was so intrigued when this launched because I wanted to see how two powerful active ingredients could work together. There are myths out there that these two ingredients can’t be used together but that is not true! Just like how vitamins work together when combined (like vitamin C and E), retinol has been proven to be more effective when paired with vitamin C. Retinol acts to firm up your skin while vitamin C acts to brighten up your skin – and the two combined, they work to really protect your skin barrier and help fight free radicals! 💫 I’ve been testing this out for over a month now and finally here to report my results. Texture is this silky formula that I wouldn’t describe as creamy but still melts on to your skin and leaves zero residue or sticky feeling. My favorite part about this is actually its slight citrusy scent. I love citrusy scents in skincare so this was a winner for me. The biggest difference I noticed from using this is just the overall texture of my skin – it is much smoother and fades out my dark spots. I’ve had absolutely zero irritations from using this product but I’d recommend you guys to spot test beforehand. I feel like the pump is so small that I feel like I have to use a couple of pumps to cover my face but maybe that was on purpose to make people use it sparingly…other than that, this was a huge win for me & now I need another bottle! 💫

It’s no surprise that I really enjoy products from Farmacy, but this product has really improved my skin a noteworthy amount in the last few months The FARMACY - Very Cherry Bright 15% Clean Vitamin C Serum with Acerola Cherry is a vitamin c serum, so it is meant to brighten the skin. My skin is typically dull, and on mornings when I use this I have a really nice glow and I look very awake. I don’t have any wrinkles yet, so I can’t attest to how this works for wrinkles, but it has helped with smoothing some fine lines that I’ve got around my eyes - not a problem i was actively trying to address, but I’m very glad it’s managed to do something for it So this contains Acerola Cherry, which is a direct source of vitamin c and it also contains ethyl ascorbic avis which is a stable form of vitamin c - these both help to brighten the skin and help to diminish dark spots I can’t speak for everyone, but this has been the product that has most helped my skin with everyday use. My skin is brighter and it is helping to address redness that I have on my cheeks It’s a lightweight serum and can be kind of sticky, so it needs to settle before layering other skincare products It’s $62 for 1 oz, which I think is a reasonable price for an effective Vitamin C product

{What is it?} A high-performance Vitamin C serum that provides antioxidants to the skin to visibly brighten, firm, reduce the appearance of wrinkles. {Who/What is it for?} Normal, Dry, Combination & oily. All skin tones. Hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone. {Texture/Consistency?} I personally feel like it’s a lightweight gel and very smooth. I don’t know if gel is the best way to describe it but 🙄 {My thoughts?} I love this serum! This is my second bottle, as I use it everyday after cleansing and toning but before moisturizer! I wear it when I don’t wear makeup and when I do. It doesn’t make my makeup move or apply weird. When I don’t wear makeup it makes my skin so bright and luminous! Defiantly have seen results as well, my skin appears brighter and firmer as I’ve been using it for 9 months. {Is it worth it?} It’s $87.00 for 1oz so it’s kind of pricy but I believe all good Vitamin C serums I’ve found (please refer me a cheaper one if you know of one!!) are expensive so I would say Yes it’s worth it because I’ve seen dramatic results. I would recommend if you have acne scars, dark spots, hyperpigmentation, fine lines or loss of firmness! dermalogica - BioLumin-C Vitamin C Serum
