I actually add vitamin c crystals to organic alcohol free witch hazel and it is amazing. Try it, it's soooo cheap, very easy and has absolutely changed my skin texture in just two months.

I've been using vitamin C for many years now and firmly believe it's one of the best anti-aging ingredients currently available. It promotes collagen synthesis (to repair damaged skin) and some studies have shown it can also protect the skin from UV damage (NOTE: it is NOT a substitute for sunscreen!). It has brightened my skin and kept most of the wrinkles away so …Read more

I currently use Nature's Bounty vitamin c and d softgel capsules. Since it's already in a liquid form, I simply squeeze it out of the capsules and rub onto my face. I leave it on for a few minutes before washing it off. I'm way to lazy to create my own serum from a powder form of vitamin c, so I was so happy to find vitamin c in softgel form. Hopefully someone can confirm (or …Read more

more % vitamin C concentration is better performance , but it may cause irritation for someone , so 10% is appropriate level that vitamin C is really can work well and also safe on your skin , by the way , pls avoid to use Vitamin c together with Retinol , AHA or BHA , you can use vitamin in daytime and use Retinol , AHA , BHA in nighttime , http://ragina99.blogspot.com/2017/03/acne2.html

I have been making my own Vitamin C serum with ferulic acid and vitamin E for a couple of years at 20% concentration. It seems to work fairly well at keeping the wrinkles and dark spots at bay. I don't think the homemade works quite as well as skinceuticals CE Ferulic but the price is so much better. It also doesn't have as nice of a consistency, feels kind of sticky and doesn't …Read more

I've gone threw alot of trial & error in making Vit C serums.

● I learned to use a solubilizing agent (like Polysorbate) instead of an emulsifier
● If the water is lower than room temp the vitamin c will never fully dissolve
● Using Vit C serum everyday & for extensive periods of time will make your skin insanely sensitive
● Since I wont be using it …

Tamisnowbird here on MUA inspired me to do this. She is pretty hardcore about her skincare. Admittedly I am not the biggest vitamin c fan. My skin seems to hate plant based ingredients. I tried to make vitamin c serums work for me and over time realized it was doing more harm than good. So I threw away 6 bottles of $$$ serums and never looked back. Until recently.

I now use vitamin c …

Like most others have reported, this has made a heckuva big difference in my skin. Many, many moons ago, my first MAC studio fix was NC15. A few years later, I'd moved up to NC20. Then fast forward another decade, and I was NC25. Clearly some long term darkening and sun damage going on, despite my using European sunscreen or IT CCcream religiously. Reading about vitamin C from the …Read more

My rating is really for the Paula's Choice Vitamin C15 booster. I have very sensitive skin; the DIY versions of this are just too irritating for me, I even have to be cautious with the PC one. But she has sales all the time, and you can get a trial (not just a one time sample) size to give it a go. A full size bottle lasts me a year or so.
