Worth It

Tested 5/5. Overall thoughts from our testers is that although it may look intimidating it's definitely worth the try as you can see such obvious results. It comes with a handy measuring spoon and they loved you you could use lesser amounts to slowly build tolerance to vitamin C. It's an affordable vitamin C product with great brightening results

Obvious result and would repurchase it
I didn’t know what to feel about this when I first used it. I thought it would be quite a fuss to start mixing it yourself. But the instructions are pretty clear and it comes with a handy scoop to help you out. I think it’s super worth it if you’re into Vitamin C products as this is more stable and it’s so worth it as the whole container is PACKED. It’s easy to use and the results are pretty obvious so I’d definitely get it again.

Amazing result after using for few days
I was a bit intimidated by this when I first saw it as it’s just powder but once you get the hang of using it it’s really quite nice! It comes with a scoop which is handy and it mixes into my moisturizer fine without any gritty feelings. I saw results in a few days especially on spots so it works really great. I love it, you get it how it is but if you’re not a fan of mixing stuff I think there is an alternative from The Ordinary as well.

Skin feels brighter after using for a month
I love how you can control how much you’re putting in as Vitamin C can be irritating for some in high concentrations so at least you can gauge what works for you. It’s affordable and my skin feels brighter after a month of use. The only thing is that it has a smell to it that I’m not a big fan of.
