The product I will share today, is the third product I tried from the Caroline Hirons Autumn kit I bought in November 2020. I’m a fan of Dermalogica products as they are efficient and very good quality. Also, As one of my favorite products is a good vitamin C serum I’m always in the hunt to try new ones.

My Opinion: It is a very thick serum with a light yellow color. The bottle is opaque which helps to prevent the oxidation of the serum.
It has a very subtle citrus scent but nothing too strong. When you apply it takes a little while for the skin to absorbs it.
When I used it the first week, I saw some results right away, because it had a hydrating effect and my skin definitely appeared brighter. Also, my skin really likes lactic acid.
Overall, my skin liked the serum as it helps to hydrated and brighter. But it did not compare of the effects of my favorite Vitamin C of all time which is the one from Kiehl’s. Although is a good product the price for me does not justify the performance. But if you like Dermalogica, maybe you can try the smaller version (30ml).
How I used it: I used it in my morning routine, after my cleanser, on dry skin.
How long did it last: 4 months
What I like the most: The hydrating effect that had on my skin.
Score: 3/5. Good.
Sustainability score: Good. It comes in a glass bottle and in a card box
Will I repurchase it: No, for me there are better options for better price
