Bạn đang xem: Mad hippie vitamin c serum
Where khổng lồ purchase: I got mine from Skinspace.co – I believe they ship in the UK & internationally. The link is HERE
What is it?: A vitamin C derivative (Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate) serum (a more stable size of vi-ta-min C than pure L-AA (however, less effective because of this but still decent at brightening the skin). A less irritating form of vi-ta-min C (as it’s not also at a low pH) made for people who struggle with higher %, pure vitamin C serums. A serum that contains vi-ta-min E (antioxidant) & Ferulic Acid (also an antioxidant) to create the famous ‘C E Ferulic’ blend. This also contains Hyaluronic acid to hydrate the skin.
Good for: Sensitive skins (i.e. If pure L-AA is hard on your skin, or you can’t handle the low pH of vitamin C serums và want something less irritating). Also dehydrated/oily skins – this is suprisingly lightweight và hydrating in my opinion!
Concerns: Ageing, Dehydration, Uneven Skin Tone (is what Mad Hippie say. I would say if you want a more potent antioxidant vitamin C serum however, going for L-AA may be more effective, if it’s the anti-ageing part of vitamin C you want. If it’s more for dehydration và uneven skin tone then this serum is fine!).
Skin Types: Normal, Oily, Combination, Dry, Sensitive (I would say yes khổng lồ all of these unless you are sensitive khổng lồ chamomile extract, Clary Sage oil or Grapefruit).
Packaging: Glass bottle – I screwed on the Niod Pump – but originally this has a regular dropper.
Directions: ”After cleansing and toning, apply a few drops of serum all over your face & neck, trying lớn spread an even amount across all areas.”
How I use it: After cleansing, toning & applying my Argireline solution 10% from the Ordinary, I then apply this serum (in the PM only – I prefer to lớn apply products containing citrus in the PM). Và then I put my moisturiser on đứng top once this has dried down. It takes roughly 2 minutes for this sản phẩm to dry down fully for me. I vày also apply this on my neck.
Key Ingredients: Vitamin C (derivative), E and Ferulic Acid. As well as HA and Chamomile Extract, a supposed antioxidant. I also lượt thích the addition of Aloe vera. Konjac is supposed to lớn help nourish the skin.
Full Ingredients: Water Deionized, vi-ta-min C (Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate), Alkyl Benzoate, Vegetable Glycerin, Water, Glycerin, Sodium Levulinate, Sodium Anisate, Clary Sage (Salvia Sclarea), Grapefruit (Citrus Grandis), Hyaluronic acid, Amorphophallus Konjac Root Powder, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf, vi-ta-min E (Tocotrienol), Ferulic acid, Chamomile Flower Extract (Recutita Matricaria), Sodium Phytate, Xanthum Gum, Hydroxyethylcellulose
Not a fan hâm mộ of the Sage oil và the Grapefruit. Also apparently Chamomile Flower extract may induce allergic reactions for some people, but it was fine for m! I do lượt thích the addition of Glycerin and HA. It does make this product hydrating, and I think the Aloe Vera helps make this sản phẩm as light và spreadable as it is (like a near-gel texture, see below).
NOTE: The Incidecoder have a full ingredient breakdown HERE
Texture: The hàng hóa comes out lượt thích a thick-ish serum (still eventually runs down the hand). It’s a pleasant feeling however, a gel with a cooling effect on the skin. It spreads very easily và is very lightweight. It absorbs into the skin but you can still tell the hàng hóa is there, so it does not disappear – it simply forms a hydrating barrier on the skin.
This has a slight yellow tint lớn it, but I don’t think it means the product is oxidising as it came slightly yellow-tinted.
