Surprised - In A Good Way!

So I usually go for the highest % of ascorbic acid I can find, but I was on PC's website stocking up on a few HG products and I just purchased it on a whim in December of 2019. it absorbs beautifully after a few seconds. It does leave a little bit of a glow, but its definitely not sticky or oily. After I put moisturizer on my skin just looks healthier.

I opened this about a month after buying it (while keeping it in my fridge). When I use it, I would open the refrigerator door, remove the product, dropped a couple drops on my face and closed the container and put it right back in the fridge. Then, I would rub it in. I dont know if it was my quick ninja like skills, but as of today (Jan 24th, 2021) it hasn't oxidized at all and it smells as fresh as day one.

The results were exactly what I'd want from a Vitamin C serum. It definitely lives up to its claims!

If at first you don't succeed, try again

Funny story, my skin hated this the first time I tried it about two years ago. I had never used an l-ascorbic acid serum before and figured it was time. I applied a tiny bit each day and every time my skin would get bright red with erythema, itching, burning, breakouts, etc. I tried to suck it up and used calming products to combat the reaction but to no avail. I figured it wasn't for me and moved on. Now, suddenly 30 years old, I try this and immediately my skin takes to it like it's water. It drinks it up, a whole dropper full, twice a day with no problems. It feels firmer, brighter, the PIH on my cheeks appears to be subsiding. What gives? I can only say that at different times in our lives products will react differently for no apparent reason. So if you're trying l-ascorbic acid for the first time and have the same reaction, don't throw in the towel, just try again later. P.S. Oh, and keep it in the fridge!
