Face serums are lightweight moisturizers that penetrate deeper to deliver active ingredients into your skin. Using a serum regularly can give your skin a firmer, smoother texture, make pores appear smaller and increase moisture levels.
Vitamin C has been known to be one of the most powerful age fighters out there. St. Botanica Vitamin C Facial Serum with Hyaluronic Acid uses the free-radical battler along with anti-inflammatory champ hyaluronic acid and is further enhanced with Vitamin E, whose famous antioxidant powers also aid in nourishing skin repair.
I recently purchased this on Amazon and I have been impressed by the quality of the product as well as the results. Formulated with only the highest quality natural and safe ingredients, the serum is non-oily on the hands when used.
St. Botanica Vitamin C Facial Serum is fast absorbing and results in a more hydrated, brighter skin with an even skin tone.
Apart from Vitamins C and E, St. Botanica Vitamin C Facial Serum also has aloe extracts [to sooth and moisturize], jojoba oil [to fight acne], green tea extract [for toning and firming] and wild geranium oil [for skin tightening]. This helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and helps to boost collagen, fade sun and age spots and improved skin firming, brightening and tone for a smoother, fresher, more revitalized youthful complexion.
The right time to use the serum depends on the formula and your skincare routine. It can be applied in the morning, at night or both, but doctors advice against applying a serum in the evening time if you are already applying a topical retinoid. I have been diligently using it every night before bed for a week now and I can feel it less oily in the mornings and a general firming and tightening of the skin as well.
What makes St. Botanica different from other brands is the fact that it is the only brand to focus on high quality expensive ingredients such as Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (which is the most stable form of Vitamin C and has the ability to penetrate the epidermis) and naturally occurring Botanical Hyaluronic Acid instead of hyaluronic acid.
