        Comments about Philosophy Turbo Booster C Powder:

        Ladies, do some research before wasting your money, please. Though clinical research supports the benefits of topical vitamin C, the delivery and concentration are key. First, Ascorbic acid (LAA) is a WATER soluable moelcule. Most beauty products are not 99.9% water so you are are unlikely to reap the full benefits. Secondly, LAA requires a carrier to penetrate the lipid barrier of your skin -- ZERO benefits. Lastly, studies show that skin improvements require a concentration between 10%-20% to penetrate the lipid barrier. In summary, if you persit in wanting a placebo, you can buy LAA powder at your local vitamin shop for far less money. Of course, you are far better off to take it orally.

            Winter was taking it's toll and my skin was looking dull. Decided to try this based on other reviews. Love it! My skin seems brighter and softer. Normally wouldn't spend this much on a skin care item, but love the results, easy to use with my favorite moisturizer every morning, and it should last quite a while. Will definitely be buying again!

              Comments about Philosophy Turbo Booster C Powder:

              My doctor had told me C is good for the skin. I mix this with my moisturizer. I love that it comes in powder form so you can cut back a little if you want. Also I found that liquid C starts turning a darker color over time and this is something you don't have to worry about with powder.

                This does not change the fragrance of whatever serum or moisturizer you mix it with and it blends in smooth and easily. Absorbs quickly into skin and makes a noticeable difference after just a week or so of use!

                      Comments about Philosophy Turbo Booster C Powder:

                      I have used this product everyday for 3 years now and recommend it to everyone looking for a great facial product. I use it with Bioelements crucial moisture and cannot say enough good things about it. It dissolves easily in the moisturizer and absorbs quickly.

                      I use this after a shower in the evening and sometimes in the morning if my skin needs a boost of radiance. I'm 27 so I can't comment about reducing wrinkles, but I do think it helps prevent them, since I have none.

                      It makes my dry skin so moisturized, and when I don't use it, my skin feels noticeably tighter and dryer. It also plumps the skin and gives it a glowing radiance. It is great to moisturize in cold winters but also to restore skin after being outside in the summer.
