I am a big fan of Vitamin C. I take it everyday and I have started to even apply it on my face. Vitamin C is a powerful anti-oxidant that help eliminate free radicals while promoting the synthesis and production of collagen (skin’s essential building block). Just like how you would take Vitamin C when you’re feeling like you’re going to fall sick, I use Vitamin C products when I want to give my skin a boost.
I’ve been using this Vitamin C serum alongside all the tissue face masks I use on an almost daily basis. The cheap ($1.95 for 1) tissue masks that I use don’t do much else except moisturize but applying this serum before slapping those masks on boosts the moisturizing effect of the mask.
Aside from the 7.5% Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), this serum also contains Hyaluronic Acid to superbly increase moisture levels in your skin and collagen to enhance firmness and elasticity. The white liquid gel smells like oranges – a fresh burst of citrus-like scent that smells like what I think Vitamin C should smell like.
You only need a few drops of this for the whole face. There is an instant glow with after application and a hydrating feeling that feels good. The dark spots I had lasered at the dermatologist’s faded faster with regular every-other day use of this. I could tell a difference in my post-acne scars too.
The wallet friendly price makes this an excellent booster for cheap tissue masks or use on its own (under a moisturizer). Buy this Mario Badescu Vitamin C Serum for US$45 at Mario Badescu.
