Everyone wants their skin to glow. A "glow" that looks like you have a light bulb radiating from within(laughs) . Now the latter is impossible but achieving a brighter even toned complexion without the use of harsh ingredients on your skin is possible with product like Vitamin C. Using Vitamin C topically defends against free radicals, helps with hyperpigmentation and increase collagen production. Vitamin C serum is a staple in my routine all year round; I can’t live without it so whenever I discover a new vitamin c serum like BY WISHTREND PURE VITAMIN C ADVANCED SERUM, I literally start salivating and can’t wait to test it out.
BY WISHTREND PURE VITAMIN C ADVANCED SERUM (CLAIM)
This light but powerful effects of vitamin c serum brightens complexion and restores lost elasticity in deep within the skin. Vitamin c stimulates collagen production and by using organic tree water as a base instead of purified water, the serum delivers more vitality to the skin in perfect harmony
HIPPOPHAE RHAMNOIDES WATER: protects the skin against harmful external factors. It contains vitamin C, vitamin E, carotenoid skin and amino acids.
ASCORBIC ACID (21.5%): skin lightening and antioxidant properties.
SODIUM LACTATE: keeps a product pH from becoming too acidic. It is moisturizing and moisturizer binding.
SODIUM HYALURONATE: used as a humectant to increase moisture in the skin, it also serves as an emulsifier. Sodium hyaluronate is capable of binding 1,800 times its own weight in water
Apply after cleansing and prepping your skin with a toner. Apply about two to three drops of serum over your face and neck, concentrating on areas with sagging skin or uneven skin tone. Wait for a minute for serum to absorb, then apply moisturizer. In the AM, this should be followed by sun protection.
NOTE: Due to the percentage of ascorbic acid in this product, you may feel a slight tingling feeling when applied. Rest assured that it will get better as you continue to use this product.I did not feel any discomfort because my skin is a little use to using vitamin C topically but for newbies it may be a little uncomfortable at first.
TIP:I highly recommend storing this in a dark, cool cupboard or anywhere cool away from direct sunlight which will prolong the efficacy of the product. If possible, place in a refrigerator once you open this product to keep it fresher longer.
HOW LONG DID I TEST THE PRODUCT?
JANUARY 2017 -MARCH 2017
All skin types, including pregnant and nursing women.
Hyperpigmentation, sagging, wrinkles, and women suffering from melasma (pregnancy mask)
A dark pump glass bottle. Easy to travel with but make sure you twist the cap securely to prevent spillage.
·I was impressed with the formulation of this product. When using vitamin C serum with high percentage of ascorbic acid; it has a tendency to dry your skin out for the first couple days. Eventually, your skin adjusts but with this serum the latter was not the case. It was mild and non-irritating.
·No breakouts at all
·My skin looked brighter within the two weeks
·Non-sticky and easily absorbs into the skin
·I love the combination of the vitamin c serum and the natural vitamin c 21.5 enhancing sheet mask. The manufacturers suggest using both together for better results and they were right. My skin felt plump immediately, leaving it hydrated for days
I didn’t twist the cap tight enough and the next day I noticed it had spilled a little in my cupboard. This is not much of a conversation because I realized that all I had to do was tighten the cap securely.
As mentioned above, the serum is compatible with the natural 21.5 enhancing sheet mask . For full review of that product, click here.Please I welcome any feedback or questions you may have in the comment section below.
