    Brightens skin tone, Fresh Product w/Every Use due to the Powder Form. I mix it with my Image Skincare Matte Moisturizer SPF 32 for use during the day. I plan to mix it into my face mask mixtures for added brightening and anti-aging benefits. Really love this product! I have acne-prone, aging, combination, sensitive skin and I haven't had any breakouts or sensitivity.

        Comments about Philosophy Turbo Booster C Powder:

        I've been using this product morning and evening for 2 weeks now. I've noticed a HUGE improvement in the evenness, brightness, and pigmentation in my skin. I've suffered from stubborn, hormonal cystic acne for years which has caused a great deal of hyperpigmentation around my cheeks and chin.

        I've used Vitamin C for reducing hyperpigmentation in the past with varying results. Vitamin C is a very unstable ingredient and I was sick of stressing over the stability of expensive serums (and having serums go bad on me) so I stopped using it for a while. I developed a lot more hyperpigmentation during this time. I decided on this powder product because of the simple ingredients and powder for. From the first use, I noticed more brightness in my skin, and within a few days some stubborn spots of hyperpigmentation had started to fade. This is HUGE for anybody who suffers from cystic acne! Sometimes half the battle is trying to cover old marks (which make it look like you have more breakouts than you do!). My hyperpigmentation has continued to improve over the past couple of weeks, and my overall skintone is more even and bright.

        I would highly recommend this to anyone struggling with hyperpigmentation from cystic acne! I'm very particular about the quality of my products, especially with them being natural and non-irritating. My only note is that it would be great to have a way to store the scooper with the bottle. (Maybe some sort of loop to have it attached?)

        Overall, a great product!

                Great concept, but doesn't work any better than crushing vitamin C tablets supplements for 1/3 the cost. Just do a quick search for topical vitamin C for the clinical research or continue wasting money - lol.

                        It is best to use a moisturizer the does not contain the Salicylic Acid. The potency of the Turbo Booster C Powder with the salicylic acid could cause an irritation.
