DAILY DOSE OF VITAMIN C

Posted by 10.31.08

SKINCEUTICALS C SERUM – The classic original Vitamin C serum has expanded into a full range to choose from, including the newest addition, Phloretic CF. C Serum is the original, C + AHA is another favorite, C+ E is a standby, C + E + Ferulic Acid is the antioxidant cocktail of choice among those in the know. Use these serums during the day to get the full effect – they can help protect you from UV rays. Serums are an acquired taste though – I bought the C+E and found it to sting a little, so I passed it on to a friend who lives in Palm Beach. Her skin is like crusty bread and can handle anything and she positively loved it. If you prefer a cream like I do, checkout some of the other SkinCeuticals products instead. I switched to the DDF C3 Plus Serum which comes in a pump and feels silky going on.

FINAL VERDICT – GGI (GOTTA GET IT)  – Depending on your skin type and tolerance, this is either a winner or an expensive nuisance. These serums are sticky and you have to be motivated to apply them daily. Works best for sun damaged skin. Expensive – $135 and up for a little bottle – and if you aren’t careful about tightening the stopper every time you use it, it will turn brown fast and you will blow your investment.

    Also try the new SkinCeuticals Phloracetic Acid – pretty amazing for sun damage. Goes on a little sticky but you get used to it.

    i was just reading this – somebody gave me a sample – it was so cute, a tiny little brown bottle. but when i opened it, the serum was kinda yellowish almost the color of whisky, so maybe it went bad. hey maybe thats why she gave it to me?! i need new girlfriends bad
