For years, vitamin C serum is my enemy. One that I know good for my skin, I would love be bestfriend with, but it’s so sensitising and drying that I couldn’t find myself to love it. But I think the biggest problem about vitamin C serum is it’s very drying and on my dehydrated skin it caused redness and sensitise my skin. So what I did was trying to make the vitamin C serum work by layering it with hydration toner that’s very hydrating and Hyaluronic Acid (HA) serum afterward to sandwich hydration in between the vitamin C serum. It works! So from that day on, I’m never without vitamin C serum.
Apart from the Sampar C-Rum – that’s very light in terms of vitamin C dosage, and also texture – I have never found vitamin C serum that I can use without sandwiching it with hydration. That’s until I found Caudalie Vine Active Glow Activating Anti-Wrinkle Serum. I tried this serum with no expectation, as my experience wasn’t all positive with this brand. With the exception of their Vinoperfect essence which I’m deeply in love with.
