I got this for 25 from winners. It is listed for 50 at sephora.

It is a thick balm. Too thick IMO. When i put it on, it feels like my skin cannot absorb it because it is that thick.

It has niacinamide which is why i bought it. But i wonder how effective it is if it feels lile the balm just sits on my skin.

I like how it is listed as a "clean" product on …

I got this as a mini from sephora (bday perk).

Didn't do much for me. The cream is not as thick or moisturizing as i like my moisturizers to be.

Plastic packaging for mini. Not sure about the normal size.

Just not impressed with it. There wasnt anything horribly wrong with it, but considering how much it is normally, I'd expect something that at least …

This stuff moisturizes my face really well! I have dry skin and I love the way this cream feels. It may be too thick or creamy or oily if you prefer gel based moisturizers.

It has a strong orange smell. I dont think its added fragrance, rather essential oils in the cream. I always opt for cream without added fragrance, so using this cream seemed to have a strong smell. Though i dont mind …

I read great reviews on this which made me want to buy it. it isn't worth it.

smell - strong floral smell which is so offputting. so much that I returned the item.

texture - thicker than your usually toners, which isn't a bad thing. but it still had a watery consistency.

packaging - nice glass bottle but so risky of breaking. probably cannot travel with …

I liked the packaging and the fact that it has niacinamide, but overall, the cream left my skin feeling sticky. Didn't feel like my skin absorbed it well. because it's so sticky, it's hard to layer. The red serum by the same company, on the other hand, is nice.

Smell - strong floral/rosy smell.

Packaging - love the red packaging, but it didn't seem like …

Reminds me of The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid. Smells like roses, not sticky, but it does take a bit longer than other serums to absorb into the skin.

Found this for $15 at Winners in Canada. Which isn't so bad for 40ml of product. I use this as a base before my other creams, oils and thicker serum.

Treatments (Face) - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Homemade Vitamin C Serum

May/29/2017

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
