It’s true, Vitamin C serums are miracle workers when it comes to evening skin tone and texture. But since most formulas are notorious for being unstable, it can be daunting to test the endless options you have. It’s why we’d rather stick to long-time favorites instead of going for something new!
That said, we can’t help but consider anything raved about on social media, especially if it seems to have a major cult following. Cue in: Wildleaf’s Vitamin C Serum.
Apparently, this local serum is receiving tons of hype thanks to their super effective formulas. One look at their IG and you’ll see that their highlights are filled with testimonials from happy customers! Seriously, take a look at the before and after photos. The dramatic improvement is incredible.
And while the vitamin C, niacinamide, and aloe vera blend might not be like other brands, we have no doubts—this stuff works. Of course if you don’t believe us, then maybe you’ll take our customers’ word for it. Below, we picked out a few reviews that’ll easily explain why this serum is so great (and how to use it). Scroll to see!
1. IT’S PACKED WITH SKIN-LOVING INGREDIENTS
Iris, 34, Sensitive skin: “This is on the expensive side, but it is worth it for being packed with the good stuff. I’m happy the ethyl ascorbic acid it contains is an indirect form of Vitamin C, which means I can use this product with retinols. But don’t go crazy with it too quickly since it’s still quite potent at 18%. (I started by using it every other day but I now use it daily.) This also has aloe vera, niacinamide, hyaluronic acid and AHA, so the result for me has been smoother skin.”
2. IT’LL GET YOUR SKIN GLOWING

Rhea, 25, Oily skin: “I’ve been using Wildleaf Vit. C serum for a month now and it really works on me. I use it every night as part of my skincare routine and wow, 2nd week pa lang you can see the difference. No more dry patches on my face.* And when I woke up the next morning, glowing skin talaga. Nakaka-happy! Worth it din sya for the price coz d sya nauubos agad. Yung consistency nya not so sticky and sets easily sa face.”

Andrea, 20, Dry skin: “This Vitamin C Serum is very effective. I’ve been using it for three months now, and* I can’t remember when was the last time I had a breakout! My blemishes are also vanishing which is really cool! I recommend really sticking with one product line, like Wildleaf, that has products designed to work well with one another and gives the most effective results.”

Roshane, 24, Normal skin: “I just found my new favorite skincare product! My officemates noticed that my skin is smoother and the* sun spots are lighter. Its very effective! Serum works very well for evening out skin tone and scar marks are lightened. Love it! Will definitely recommend this to my friends.”
And for all the first timers out there, here’s a step-by-step guide on how to use the Vitamin C serum in a routine. Have a peek!
STEP 1. Make sure to patch test first and see if any signs of irritation occur within 24 hours. Everyone’s skin reacts to formulas differently, so it’s best to check if this one is compatible with yours!
STEP 2. After cleansing and toning, place 3-4 drops on your palm and gently apply the serum onto your face. Keep in mind to avoid areas with open wounds such as parts with freshly popped pimples.
STEP 3. Softly pat the serum into the skin for better absorption. Follow through with moisturizer and sun protection (when necessary).
NOTE: If your skin is adjusting to the new formula, ease your way in by applying the serum 2-3 times a week. Slowly work your way up to nightly application, until you feel like your skin can handle this twice a day.
