Note: This is a very picture heavy post. :P
It's to make up for my lack of post this month.
Here's a look at the product before I continue with a very elaborate review of it:
Name: C20 Pure Vitamin C 21.5 Advanced Serum
Price: USD29.99 (I'll list some promotions regarding this serum down below, at the last section)
Where to buy: Wishtrend
The Front Part
Back part of the box
The other side with English
The bottom with manufacturing date & expiry date
Top part of the box
This is what you can see once you lift the lid
Tadah! The bottle
Back part of the bottle
Open the cap
& Replace the cap with the dropper provided :D
This is to show you that it is colourless as compared to the previous version.
This is to show you the colour on a white piece of paper:
Told you it is colourless.
It is absolutely not sticky at all compared to the old version.
Though after your skin has absorbed the serum, when you pat your skin, you'll feel a tad bit sticky
Scent:Exactly the same scent as the old version.
For those who never tried the previous version, it smells like orange. more like vitamin C tablets?
Just to let you readers know, I've used this for a whole month before actually reviewing this. Have fun looking at the before & after pics of my horrendous skin.
Tried to upload day 1 & after week 1 but my internet is so so so slow. Will update it soon
For now, just have a look at my skin condition after 2 weeks, 3 weeks & 4 weeks.
Week 2, Week 3, Week 4
Notice that glow? After a month of usage
Week 2, Week 3, Week 4
I must say though, pictures shown might not show any dramatic effect whatsoever but I personally do feel that my skin is healthier. I do realise that bb cream stays on longer & my skin is not as dry as it was before using this product. About acne scars, I don't think this serum does anything. Though, this serum does make my skin look healthier. When I apply bb cream, it looks so so so natural.
Pros:Skin looks a lot healthier (I swear, pictures may not show it but my face is no longer dry! :D)
Last long (surprisingly since I have a large face, thought this would only last for a month)
Nice scent (loving anything fruity :P)
Cons:A lil expensive (for me, coz I'm just that stingy)
Can only get it online (but, everyone's loving online shopping now right?)
Does not lighten acne scars (at least not for me)
Hassle to always bring it out from the fridge & then keep it back in the fridge (lazy much?)
Will I purchase?:Actually, yes. I would but only if the promotion is really good.
Conclusion:This serum is a highly raved product and for good reasons. It may not have worked out the way I thought it would but it did gave me healthier looking skin which must have been the original purpose of it. Though it did not lighten my acne scars, it might lighten yours since I've seen other bloggers' reviews and this serum did lighten their scars. Probably because my scars are too old? But hey, takes a very long time to heal old acne scars right? I'm not giving up!
