Science behind this product:

Vitamin C is a proven skin-brightener and antioxidant for decades. It boosts collagen formation and effectively targets visible signs of ageing, giving skin the much-needed glow. The effectiveness of Vitamin C majorly depends upon the concentration of pure Vitamin C delivered to your deeper layer of skin. If a serum delivers 8-10 % of pure Vitamin C right into the dermis, it works like a magic wand. However, Vitamin C is highly unstable in its purest form (L-Ascorbic Acid) and loses its efficacy when exposed to air or light.

Minimalist Vitamin C serum is formulated with a stable Vitamin C derivative, 10% Ethyl Ascorbic Acid that is closest to pure Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid) in molecular size and weight. With similar molecule size and 86% pure Vitamin C content it delivers maximum benefits of Vitamin C without getting bad or losing efficacy till the last drop (unlike other Vitamin C serums).

A Centella water based formula that soothes skin and reduces irritation making it suitable for all skin types. Uniquely formulated with 1% Acetyl Glucosamine (AG) that not only lightens skin tone, it also promotes synthesis of Hyaluronic Acid to improve skin hydration. Lastly, AG improves your natural cell-turnover, giving you a bright & glowing complexion.

How
to use

  • After cleansing and toning your face, take 2-3 drops of Vitamin C serum on your fingertips with a dropper. Apply it on the face by gently tapping it on the skin. With a circular motion, evenly spread the serum and allow your skin to absorb it
  • For instant hydration & a plump look, use it with Minimalist Hyaluronic Acid 2%+ B5. Apply a few drops of HA, and when the skin absorbs it, go ahead and use Vitamin C serum. Wait for 1-2 minutes to allow Vitamin C to get absorbed and then go ahead with applying moisturizer
  • It can be applied in the morning(AM) and evening(PM). Always wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen SPF 30 and above while using Vitamin C serum

FAQs

1. What does vitamin C serum do for the skin?
    Vitamin C serum is a powerful antioxidant that has the power to neutralise free radicals, which in turn protects skin and prevents photo-ageing. The exposure to UV leads to skin ageing and sagging of the skin. Regular usage of Vitamin C can brighten the skin tone while reducing the signs of ageing.

2. Can I use Vitamin C in AM?
    Yes! Vitamin C is an antioxidant and it neutralises are radicals. Ultraviolet light emitted by sun induces free radical formation in skin and that leads to photo aging, and even cancer. Vitamin C is a great antioxidant and it protects the skin against the harmful effects of UV radiations. So it’s not only safe to use Vitamin C in the day, it in-fact is helpful to do that. However, please note that Vitamin C is not a replacement for your sunscreen and you should always layer your Vitamin C serum with a good sunscreen when using Vitamin C during the day.

It could better as a combination of the following

It would better as a combination of Ethyl Ascorbic acid, Ferulic acid and Vitamin E or hyaluronic acid

It's only been a month

I've been using am and pm since a month now. I generously apply it to my face and neck post face wash and toner, I follow it up with my hyaluronic acid infused moisturiser and sunscreen.
Don't really see any difference yet.
Maybe I'll give it some more time and update the review.
I am an acne prone skin, haven't gotten any purging. That's good I guess
