Vitamin C is one of the most important product on my skincare routine as it does wonders and help on how my skin looks and feels.
And after years using and trying different ones, I can easily determine pretty early if I like it or not. For example my holy grail will be forever the one from Kiehl’s, but I’m always on the hunt of a new one. And after many reviews I read online I decide to try this one from Estee Lauder.

My review: To be honest I was a little bit skeptical about it, but after reading some many good reviews i decided to give it a chance to another product from Estee Lauder. But again, it disappointment. In my opinion it was one of the worst vitamin C serum I have tried. Why? It did nothing for my skin. It did not help with brightness; it did not hydrate my skin nor help with my pigmentation. NOTHING.
