Hi Lovelies!
Just in case you haven’t noticed, I’ve been doing a LOT of Vitamin C Serum reviews of late. For some reason since I joined Tomoson (an awesome site that connects brands with bloggers), I’ve been invited to participate in quite a few campaigns focused on Vitamin C Serums. This time I had the chance to try out Day by Day Vitamin C Serum. I’ve got to say that the name alone reminds me of music from Hair. (Click HERE to find on Amazon).

Vitamin C Serums are a great way to prep the skin for moisturizer as all of the serums I’ve tried contain Hyaluronic acid, which is able to swell and hold a LOT of water, which is great for (dry) skin.

I always have chronically dry skin which can make even the lightest foundation look cakey if I’m not careful. But since I started using Vitamin C Serums a couple months ago, my skin has been a LOT less flaky than it was.

There is no strong fragrance to this serum and just has a slight medicinal scent which is likely from the Witch Hazel that it contains. I hate strong fragrances and appreciate a more natural smelling skincare.

I leave on a month and a half trip tomorrow! Still have some packing to do and arrangements to make. I hope to do some posting while I’m gone. So if you do send me an email please allow me a bit more time to read and respond.

Product Review: Hyaluronic Acid Serum by InstaNatural

Hi Lovelies!

Recently, I had the opportunity to try InstaNatural’s Hyaluronic Acid Serum (plus Vitamins C, E, and Green Tea) [click HERE to find on Amazon]. Now I know I’ve written several posts reviewing Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid serums, so what makes this one different? Well for starters this one is has more of a gel consistency versus a liquid plus the bottle is significantly larger (about twice the size) than any of the others I’ve tried before. 

Since this one is a gel, having a dropper wouldn’t work quite to well as it does with a liquid, so this one has push pump dispenser. This clear gel doesn’t have any fragrance added and has a very light medicinal scent. I think the medicinal scent is from the Witch Hazel which is the third ingredient which indicates a higher percentage as compared to the rest of the ingredients.

I like Witch Hazel, in fact when I was a teen I used to spend about a month every summer in Northern California with my aunt, uncle, and cousins. One day we went to a local water park and I got sunburnt. That evening my aunt generously covered my very sensitive bright red skin with pure witch hazel. I was amazed that the witch hazel was even more effective than aloe! So ever since then I’ve been a huge fan of witch hazel. I only wish that Trader Joe’s never stopped selling the pure witch hazel (face cleansing) wipes.

According to the label, “Our Serum contains botanically derived Hyaluronic Acid, along with a perfect blend of antioxidants Vitamin C + E + Green Tea. Holding up to a 1,000 times its weight in water. Hyaluronic Acid is a great natural moisturizer for the skin.” I’ve read that Hyaluronic Acid is a great moisturizer since it can hold soooo much water!
image
I have chronically dry skin ALL year round.  Even though it can hold so much water, it is still necessary to add a moisturizer to your skin after the serum dries. And Hyaluronic Acid is supposed to be a great anti-aging agent along with evening out and brightening your skin tone.

Product Review: Le Beauté Pure Vitamin C Serum

Hi Lovelies!

I’m back with another Vitamin C Serum this time from Le Beauté Pure (click HERE to find on Amazon)! I’ve had the pleasure of trying several Vitamin C + Hyaluronic Acid serums of late. So as to invoke the memory of being told that Vitamin C is found in oranges, pictures of oranges are on the front of the bottle. Since there are images of orange slices on the front, I had hoped that this one would have the scent of oranges like the very first one I tried, but sadly, no hint of a scent of oranges. That said the scent is medicinal in nature and I’m guessing is from the Witch Hazel, which IS one of my favorite natural skincare ingredients.
image
This was the first bottle I received that came with a flat topped lid with the eye dropper packaged separately. While I haven’t had any issue of leaks with any of the other bottles, I like that I have a choice as to which lid I keep on the bottle.
image
The bottle states, ” This serum is a concentrated delivery system for the highest form of active, bio-available Vitamin C for beautiful skin. Suspended in a concentrated base of pure vegan hyaluronic acid to plump skin cells and protect and restore” While I”m not sure if I can tell (yet) whether if there are any changes, I look forward to continuing to use Le Beauté Pure Vitamin C Serum over the coming weeks/months. 
image
I do however notice that my skin is often MUCH less red in morning before putting my makeup on than before I started using Vitamin C serums. That is a HUGE improvement in the skincare appearance department as it means I can wear lighter (sheerer) foundation which is a huge advantage as it looks much more natural and is more durable in the heat.

Have you tried any Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid, and/or other anti-aging serums? Which ones have you tried or want to try? Is anti-aging ‘treatment’ or prevention a skin concern of yours? Please share in the comments below!
