my skin is combination & this is definitely my HOLY GRAIL product to use at morning ( i dont recommend if u have dry / sensitive skin as this product contain active ingredient of vitamin C // L- ascorbic ).
i use this after cleanser & combine it with B-hydra for that extra hydration ( prevent skin from dryness as this product might make ur skin drier due to its active ingredients!) then apply a moisturizer! after that, YOU MUST USE SPF ALONG WITH IT! this product contain active ingredient & to make it stable (?) u should put a SUNSCREEN ON! SPF perform as a barrier to skin that protect u from the free radical!
MOREOVER, i found a research that vitamin C + SPF workss welll together to enhance ur skin!! so i definitely recommend u to put a sunscreen on when using vitamin c!!
this is my first vitamin C serum & i havent tried any other product as this product is soo good for my skin! i definitely get instant glow from using this!! definitely recommended
overall, if you have problem with dullness, i do recommend to use vitamin C especially in the morning! combined it with SUNSCREEN for a better result! however, if you have dry // sensitive skin, i dont recommend it as it might cause irritant to ur skin due to its active ingredient!
I bought this product because of his beautiful ingredient list. Unfortunately I have not known that drunk elephant got sued by L`oreal because of copyright of this product. It happened around 2018. So I believe drunk elephant changed the ingredients here. On their website you see a slightly different ingredients under de C Vitamin Serum. The new ingredients list is not as good as it was before. There are two new ingerdients which are fugal acne trigger. So now I do understand why I break out
But there are some postitive effects. First of all it does help a little bit agains the fine lines on my forehead. Also it does help a little bit against the acne scarfs. I do not mind the yellow/organge texture which does not smell very well and the sticky feeling, because after some minits it goes away. However it does make my skin shiny on my forehead and nose. This serum can make my skin orange if I do not use a proper moisturizer.
I would not rebuy the product because of the fugal acne trigger ingredients. But I will use this cerum until it gets empty.
I purchased this product in high hopes after reading rave reviews online. To my disappointment the product fails to deliver after 45 days of continuous use.
I keep this serum in the fridge since Vitamin C has a tendency to get spoiled in warm temperature. Actually what I find strange is the color of serum. It's already yellowish brown when out of the bottle instead of transparent. Perhaps Drunk elephant being clever to not let consumer know if the product is spoiled or not.
The serum gives a tingly sensation when applied. I have not noticed any improvement in my uneven skin tone around chin area and lips.
It feels hydrating and glowy though.
please be careful with vitamin c, it gave me acne in the 2nd month of using it and chemically burned my skin, look up the risks of using pure vitamin c from a non biased dermatologist source. from what I've learned when vitamin c is oxidized it can damage the skin and this product one hundred percent damaged my skin. the first month of using it was bliss but after that everything went downhill overnight
