I come to you today with a Vitamin C Serum review from
Who doesn’t love Vitamin C? I’m a big fan as I have spent my younger years in the sun… yes, I was one of those people. My pigmentation not only comes from years in the sun, but I also get spots from blemishes. Yes, I’m over 30 and I still get breakouts.
GLOWBIOTICS is a newer brand to me. They are a probiotic skincare company focused on providing skincare specific treatments based on science and really cutting-edge technology.
“GLOWBIOTICS products contain a range of ingredients and formulations that specifically target the health of the skin while avoiding the utilization of harsh chemicals and unhealthy ingredients that are often included in anti-aging and skin health products/treatments. Our products have a clean profile and are infused with a potent blend of probiotics, antioxidants and nutrients that utilize unique delivery systems and specific technologies that deliver proven results.” (https://www.glowbiotics.com/science/)
I’m loving the key ingredients in this product: (see below from GLOWBIOTICS’ website)
- 5% Vitamin C (Magnesuim Ascorbyl Phosphate)
- 5% Vitamin C (Ascorbyl Glucoside)
- Smart Peptide 189
- Hyaluronic Acid
- Bearberry Leaf Extract
There are two types of Vitamin C along with peptides and hyaluronic acid to help hydrate the skin. I can definitely feel the ingredients working. I’ve used this for a few months now, and I have really enjoyed the consistency and brightening effect. It isn’t too sticky or difficult to wear over makeup. I let it sink in for about a minute and then add my moisturizer on top. No pilling at all either!
This Vitamin C doesn’t make me red, and I don’t feel like it is too strong for my skin. I wouldn’t say I have very sensitive skin though.
There is no distinct scent. It is also phthalate-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, FD&C dye-free and cruelty-free. I love that it is clear, too.
I also like that it has lasted a long time. It hasn’t oxidized or turned any funky colors! Whoop!
I really do enjoy using this product in my routine. I LOVE Vitamin C and I feel like it truly does work. Vitamin C can do wonders for the skin! What is a plus about this one? It has peptides and many other hydrating ingredients to help calm the skin. This really makes a difference!
Overall – great product! I would definitely recommend. What are some of your favorite Vitamin C serums at the moment?
Wishing you all the bright fireflies,
