First off, a little about vi-ta-min C for the skin: it"s a temperamental little beast. Maybe temperamental is not the right word I"m looking for. Delicate perhaps? You see, it has to lớn be formulated at the right pH cấp độ (less than 3) khổng lồ be effective yet not too low (above 2.5?) or it can irritate the skin.Vitamin C is also notoriously unstable và starts to lớn degrade when exposed to heat, light, và air. So whatever vitamin C product you go with should be in an air tight, dark bottle that gets stored in the refrigerator. Based on all this, I"m sticking with temperamental & delicate as adjectives.

Yet an effective vi-ta-min C serum can vì chưng such good things for the skin! Vitamins C & E paired together protect the skin from both UVA & UVB rays và scavenges for damaging không tính tiền radicals. Vi-ta-min C can reverse the chemical compound that causes skin discolorations for a more even complexion. Vi-ta-min C is also thought lớn aid in collagen production, which means tighter, firmer skin. It"s a skincare powerhouse, pure & simple. For reference, I"ve got super oily skin with under the skin bumps caused by sebaceous hyperplasia, sun damage from years of not wearing sun screen & living on the Gulf Coast, & I"m old :-)

Ciracle"s C-20 is a thin, slightly viscous pale yellow liquid. I used about half a dropper"s worth for my face, neck, & back of my hands. It stings (tingles?) slightly after applying, & has a somewhat sticky finish. When I did wear it during the day I did not notice it interfering with my makeup in the least, và that slight stickiness could work as foundation primer, I suppose. This did not irritate my skin nor did it cause breakouts.

So did I see any difference in my skin? Yes, I believe this did make a difference. The dark spots on the left side of my face are slightly lighter và the overall tone & clarity of my skin seems better. I liked using a vi-ta-min C serum enough that I want to keep one in my skin care routine, although I"m not sure it will be Ciracle"s C-20. Memebox no longer carries it, but I bởi vì see it on amazon.com for about $35 & at the official Ciracle site for $39.30. I just purchased a reasonably priced vitamin C serum from a US brand called Simply Radiant, so I"ll have something khổng lồ compare. I"ve also heard good things about Drunk Elephants C-Firma Day Serum, but I"m not quite ready to spend $80 lớn try it out :-)
