A must for clear bright skin!!
I had used this for a few years, but for some reason I stopped. I "rediscovered" it and have been using it in the last year-and-a half or so, and I don't think I will ever stop again. For some reason this product doesn't get as much attention as it should like hope in a jar and other products, but it really should! I mix 1/2 to 3/4 scoop with the when hope is not enough serum and use every morning before moisturizer. I love it! It helps the skin stay clear, bright and smooth, and I feel that the combination really helps prime my skin for makeup so I don't even need any makeup primer. What's good for your body is good for your face--you need and would want vitamin C! The price seems high for a tiny bottle, but a little bit goes a very long way, so it really is a great value. I believe each bottle lasts me over 6 months with daily use.
For me it was messy
They don't have my skin type so I choose Dry, I am actually very reactive, sensitive and I have rosacea with some dryness. I bought this based on a suggestion from a woman on a posting board I am a member of, I thought "hey this will allow me to use Vitamin C since I can mix it into my moisturizer". Well, while it does do that it is also a very messy process. I have tried mixing this product multiple ways with my PTR moisturizer which is nice but the process is a messy process and I am worried that I don't feel like I can put enough in to notice even a marginal change ( I am scared of putting too much in and bam! bright red and burning). My PTR Cloud Creme is a perfect product to mix this with but I end up wasting it and getting it everywhere. It is on the difficult/frustrating side trying to get the product out of the bottle with the little scoop and mix it effectively. I used it for a week, on the upside, while it didn't really irritate my skin I did notice that I was a tad on the pinker than usual side when I mixed this in with my creme---no burning, no itchy and no pain, just a tad more pink on my cheeks. While this is a really good idea, in theory, it seems to be a problem with implementation (at least for me, I'm not the most patient person in the world). I have decided that I will be returning this to the store. I could probably suggest it as a product to try but with the "this is messy warning". I gave it 3 stars because it is so dadburn difficult to mix well enough to probably do a lot of good unless they find a better way to mix that is not so messy and wasteful. Also, another good thing, no fragrance.
I have been using this product for a year. My friends ask me all the time…what have you done to your face? My response…philosophy bitumen C powder. I mix it with my HOPE moisturizer!
Add this to your routine
I add this to my regular face cream, mixed in perfectly and works really well. Would recommend
Absolute favorite and go-to for skin care. Helps even out my complexion with everyday use. Big assistance in glowing without makeup.
Minimizes dark spots like crazy
I rarely find a product that clearly works this well. If you want to minimize dark spots anywhere on your body, you found what you're looking for here. I use it on my face, back of hands and chest. I have fair skin with tons of freckles and the older I'm getting, the worse the dark spots are becoming. This helps take care of it. Only downfall is that I have to keep using it or the spots will eventually come back within a few weeks. Fortunately, I can continue to buy this product when that happens.
I've been using this product for a couple of months and love the results I'm seeing. I mix 1 or 1/2 tsp (included) of this with the "When hope is not enough" serum and my face looks more even, tighter I use way less makeup since I've been doing this. I absolutely recommend this and the serum together!
