My opinion: Vitamin C is a must in my routine as it help deal with the dryness and hyper pigmentation, but most important promotes collagen production.I have a tried some vit C serums and there are 4 things I look in them:
- My skin after a month of use feels softer and brighter, this is subjective quality , but you know your skin and you know what works and doesn’t.
- At least 10-% of L-Ascorbic acid.
- Colorless if is a serum. This is important, because Vitamin C is not very satble on its own, so it oxidized (turns yellow-orange) and after that the serum is not doing anything on your skin. If it comes in a cream/lotion form, it s ok.
- Absorbs very quickly
C-Firma meets 2 out of my criteria (2&4), don’t get me wrong is a nice serum, but my skin didn’t feel anything different or improvement and for the price tag you will expect an effect. Also the solor of teh serum is orange , which me is not good as I can’t see if still the serum is ok or not. I does have the date of expiration , but the bets sign to see if you Vic C serum is ok is with the color. This is a big no for me.
Don’t get me wrong I like the brand and they have some stellar products, but unfortunately the C-firma did not nothing for me.
