CLAIM TO FAME: A complexion-brightening serum with a stabilized vitamin C derivative
FAST FACTS: Lightens and revitalizes skin tone and reduces signs of aging; contains ascorbyl glucoside, a water-soluble derivative of vitamin C that’s considered a gold standard due to its high stability and comfortable use; features a pH level of 6.00 to 7.00; vegan formula is cruelty-free and doesn’t contain alcohol, oil, silicone, nut, gluten, and soy
PERFECT FOR: Refining skin texture and tone

”I’ve been using this for about a week now along with the salicylic acid and hyaluronic acid 2% + B5. I noticed a difference in my skin tone after only one use. My skin tone is a bit more even and I’m not really having any new breakouts from it—for reference I am dry, acne/blackhead prone, and sensitive. I don’t see any totally groundbreaking results yet but it has only been a week. I do find this serum sticky but the stickiness goes away after about 1 minute. The key is to use a really small amount (I use about 3-4 drops). I have to PAT this into my skin NOT RUB because it will start to pill a little bit on top of the salicylic acid and hyaluronic acid. Even though the texture is not ideal, it really doesn’t bother me because it dries down and soaks in quickly on my dry skin. I am hoping that with continued use, this might take care of some of my older acne scars and sun spots. So far so good, and I love that it is cruelty free, vegan, silicone free, and alcohol free!”

”I can’t even explain how much I love this product!!! By far my fav Vit C product, especially for people with dry and aging skin. I feel like it really nourishes my skin making it so soft and plump. I use it AM and PM in combination with Resveratrol and follow by NMF. The perfect combination <3”
