Impressed a perpetual skeptic!
on September 8, 2015
I've used a lot of different products over the years, and I use to make my own Vitamin C serum,, but I wouldn't be consistent in using it and I didn't know how to make it more stable. I based my choice on the percentages and ratios of the ingredients, the only one I didn't see is the hyaluronic acid. Regardless, It seems like so many people have fabulous things to say about so many products, and while I have a fairly good complexion, I never had people say my skin was "glowing," or "brighter." Not even prescription creams. Well, I've used this for about two weeks and I didn't think it realistic to expect a noticeable difference quickly, if at all. I know how it works, and at best I was hoping for something to help slow some of the wrinkling process. I did have a few dark spots on my jaw; a side effect of medicine I have to take. I hoped it would help lighten these, because the prescription cream to lighten the spots does damage skin by thinning the skin and decreases collagen and it's irreversible.
Yesterday, to my shock, my husband looked at me and said, "you look really good. Your skin looks different, somehow, better." Maybe something some husbands may notice, but mine doesn't even notice when I change my hair color or lose 10 pounds. So I really examined my skin under magnification and I did see a pronounced decrease in the dark spots, they were almost imperceptible after 4 years of trying everything, and redness from general sensitivity is greatly diminished. I left one discoloration untouched by the serum and now I regret not taking before and after pictures.
