My review: It seems that lately I have not had luck with products Deciem, even though some of their products are part of my holy grail group. This particular Vitamin C is not.
There are 3 things I look in a Vitamin C serum: that brightens my skin, help it to be softer and slightly evens out my skin tone.
This serum did nothing. My skin felt dryer and without glow. I finish the entire bottle to see if it had a slow effect. but nothing happened. Using made miss my beloved one from Kiehl’s, which until now I haven’t found nothing like it.
