My skin has always been a finicky thing. For years, I dealt with adult acne and tried product after product to help find a cure for my skin issues. I even went as far as to get on Accutane to try and finally cure my pimple situation. The results were pretty great—until they weren’t.
After about a year or two of clear skin, my old issues began to resurface: blackheads, deep, under-the-skin acne, and constant spots on my chin and forehead. It was frustrating, to say the least, and I was so fed up with exposing my face to harsh chemicals and products.
I found my skin angel, as I like to call her, in a super sweet and knowledgeable esthetician here in Austin. She immediately made me dump all the harsh products and make-up she deemed unhealthy for my skin (which was a LOT of stuff). Even products that were almost brand new got tossed, and I only got to keep a few of the items I was using regularly. One of these was Mario Badescu Vitamin C Serum. She confirmed that this was a great product for my skin; the ingredients in the serum are antioxidants that help protect my face from free radicals, and keep it looking bright and vibrant.
I have been using this serum for almost two years now, and it has become a staple in my morning skin routine. When I first used it, the results were almost immediate. The next day I’d wake up with noticeable brighter skin, and an all-around even tone all over my face. My skin looked radiant, smooth, and glowing. Great for all skin types, this serum also helps with collagen production, keeping skin looking full and firm. You can also use it at night (as the directions suggest) following it up with your favorite night cream.
One of the greatest things about this product is its longevity: I have used the same bottle for about a year now. All you need is a couple of drops every morning, before applying moisturizer and makeup, and you are ready to glow! It dries quickly, so there is no greasy after-feel when you’re done applying, and it is one of the quickest absorbing oils I’ve ever tried on my skin. This is a key factor for me, since I have combination skin that tends to get oily in my T-zone. The price point is great too, especially for how long one little bottle can last.
So, if you’re looking for the right potion to brighten, firm up, and smooth your skin’s texture (and who isn’t?!), this serum is the perfect product for you. It’s definitely going to be a staple in my skincare routine for a long time.
