Of course, I do always worry about reactions to new products, since I have very fair, very sensitive skin that tends to respond with redness and irritation quite easily. Having read up on Vitamin C, I was preparing myself for the worst when I got around to trying it, but this serum actually hasn’t been bad. It seems to be very gently formulated, and the additional ingredients appear to be very complimentary to the Vitamin C. I haven’t been using it long enough to see significant benefits, but I have noticed that my skin feels minimally irritated and actually has less redness than it did to start. It does also have a bit more even tone and overall brighter look.
I really like the consistency of this serum – it’s very liquidy and not really moisturizing, so it sinks right into my skin, and I can still wear my normal SPF moisturizer on top of it without getting greasy. It’s definitely been easy and beneficial to incorporate into my daily routine.
It does seem to have an odd scent, though. Kind of herbal, plant-like…it’s not wonderful, but it also isn’t strong or lingering. I’m sure it’s just the natural scent of some of the ingredients, since it doesn’t smell unnatural or overwhelming.
The packaging is solid – it comes in a glass bottle and with a separate dropper that you use to replace the standard screw-top. It’s tinted glass, so that should help to prevent the product from oxidizing, but I will still be keeping it in a cupboard out of the light (light will cause Vitamin C to very quickly break down and not only become useless but actually harmful to the skin). The dropper dispenses an absolutely perfect amount of product to cover my face and neck, as well.
Overall, I really like this serum and will definitely be keeping it in my rotation. If you’re looking for a nice, solid, very light Vitamin C serum that doesn’t force you to suffer through an adjustment period, this one definitely fits the bill!
