While spring is around the corner, we’re not out of cold season quite yet. If you’re anything like the rest of the population, chances are you’ve been squeezing more vitamin C into your diet and routine than usual.
By now, we all know the benefits of vitamin C in its various forms. Whether you’re eating it with your dinner, drinking it or applying it to your skin, it helps repair body tissues, boosts your immune system and brightens skin. And right now, the All Natural Advice Anti-aging Vitamin C Serum, one of Amazon’s bestselling serums, is a whopping 40 per cent off.
What is it?
The Canadian-made All Natural Advice Anti-aging Vitamin C Serum uses certified organic ingredients such as 20 per cent vitamin C, 11 per cent hyaluronic acid and vitamin E to moisturize skin. This formulation, with its watery consistency, absorbs deeper into the skin and dries quickly, and promises to reduce sunspots and wrinkles. It’s essentially a skincare routine that promises to result in glowy, plumped skin.
SHOP IT: Amazon, $17 (originally $28)
How does it work?
Thanks to the amount of vitamin C it contains, this concentrated serum brightens and boosts glow. With the addition of hyaluronic acid and jojoba oil, it’s also a moisturizing powerhouse that reduces the appearance of fine lines. Using witch hazel to tighten and retain skin elasticity, this serum is naturally anti-aging, reducing the look of wrinkles. While there’s a slight tingling sensation upon application, this is promised to be completely normal as the natural ingredients work their magic, rejuvenating your skin.
Unlike most beauty products, it is promoted as a unisex item, promising both men and women the same great results.
What people are saying
With more than 7,800 ratings and an average of 4.2 out of 5 stars, this serum is an affordable alternative to more expensive brands.
“The vitamin C serum worked almost instantly, giving my eye bags a ‘lift’ so to speak, and it felt very soothing and therapeutic. I tried other expensive and 100 per cent guarantee remedies for my dark circles, but they did not work,” wrote one male customer. “This is my second bottle and I have plans to buy many more. Not only do I apply it under my eyes, I apply to my entire face as part of a morning regimen, and my face feels tighter and brighter. What I love most about the product it's made right here in the county I love: Canada. Can't beat that.”
“Having used hyaluronic acid for many years, and mixing it with another vitamin C serum, I was delighted when I found Amazon was carrying this product with vitamin C and bonus vitamin E. I have purchased this product often and have given it to friends to use and to try. At the age of 69, I easily pass for a lady much younger. This is a vital product for women to use on a daily basis,” adds another customer.
While the reviews claim this serum helps tighten and brighten skin, some users have found it results in breakouts.
“I want to give this five stars, as it does give a glowing and tightening effect and has a decent ingredient list (and it smells so nice, to boot). But, I'm afraid it is the cause of my breakouts. I never break out, but when I use this, I do,” reads one review.
“I bought this product because of an amazing review. I’ve already been using it for a month. I can’t notice any changes on my face…In fact, my pimples are getting worse now,” reads another.
If you’re looking to inject vitamin C to your skincare routine and reap the glowing, tightening and anti-aging results, then this All Natural Advice Anti-aging Vitamin C Serum is for you. With so many positive reviews, it is an affordable option to add to your skincare routine, but beware of breakouts as vitamin C can be problematic for sensitive or acne-prone skin.
