Q: Do you know the concentration of Vit C in the product? I'm looking for a product with at least 25% Vit C.

submitted by Turtlejoy - 3 years ago
  • A: I believe its 22%. this product was originally named vitamin c 22% serum but they changed the name because many people were wary to try it since it sounded intense but it is quite a gentle serum.

    submitted byallyson - 3 years ago
  • A: Based on the ingredient list, there is no way this product has 22% vit C. Realistically, it could contain 10%, but I would guess less than that. Either way, it could still be effective.

    submitted bySuzy - 2 years ago
  • A: Our Vitamin C Complex Serum delivers a unique and proprietary complex of L-Ascorbic Acid, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, and a multi-fruit extract blend. We utilize encapsulation to ensure stability while providing a time released delivery that greatly reduces the potential risk of skin irritation. At NATURIUM, our priority is to develop highly-potent formulations while ensuring skin compatibility. While we don't disclose our specific ingredient percentages in our proprietary complex, we believe our formula should not irritate your skin, while providing a very high level of performance efficacy.

Q: Does this serum gives you break out because I had irritation and little pimple after applying truskin brand natural vitamin c serum

submitted by h patel - 2 years ago
  • A: We clinically test all of our formulations to ensure safety in regards to irritation or sensitivity. With any topical cosmetic product, there is still potential for an adverse reaction based on individual skin type, combining with another product or a potential allergy. It's difficult to know the exact reason for your individual reaction but discontinuing all but one can help pinpoint. Slowly incorporate the other products one at a time to gauge your skin's response. Patch test before use and listen to your skin.

I've heard about the wonders of Vitamin C serums and this was recommended by a skin influencer on IG (lol). I have very sensitive skin, am prone to breakouts, and have excoriation disorder (compulsive picking), so I'm really choosy with products. This hasn't caused any irritation or dryness. After a few weeks of using, I'm not sure if I notice a difference, but that can be tough to tell with my skin because of picking. I definitely plan to keep using it though for a longer amount of time!

I absolutely love this product! I use it at night because I’m afraid my skin would be too sensitive in the sun. Love the consistency, absorbs very quickly and I put my moisturizer over it. I have used it for a month now and noticed a huge difference in my skin!! Wrinkles are practically disappearing, skin is very plump and pores are minimized. This product is amazing!!!

Pam - 21 days ago, Verified purchaser
I have tried both this and the juiced-up version with retinol. I liked this one well enough to repurchase but the second bottle I bought had MOLD growing in it—I only opened it to check because I knew the texture wasn’t right. Companies need to start using actually effective preservatives again (seriously, there is nothing wrong with parabens) because I can’t believe I was applying this gross growth to my face 🤢 Should’ve taken a pic before I returned to get my money back but believe me…I never write reviews and I would not repurchase. Eww.

Kmariko - 27 days ago, Verified purchaser
I’m so sad to say it but this broke me out like CRAZY and my eczema flared up on my neck. I ran out of my usual vitamin C serum that costs $80 and decided to go more budget friendly. This was the only change I made to my skin routine. Big mistake. Now my skin is paying for it. Don’t use this if you have sensitive skin!

The Best Vit C I've Tried!

Ashley B - 1 month ago
I decided to give this product a go after purchasing a few drugstore vitamin C serums which did not work out due to pilling, stickiness or skin irritation. This product really surprised me in such a great way. It is extremely lightweight, it doesn't pill (I layer skincare in the morning and I am still able to with this product), and it is not sticky or uncomfortable on the skin! The texture is extremely smooth and it dries down very well. I also have sensitive acne-prone skin and my skin loves this!

I love this stuff! It has an airless pump which helps the product lasts longer. It doesn’t have a gross smell like many vitamin c products. It also didn’t cause me to break out or cause irritation. I will need to continue to watch for months to see if I notice improvements long term but I am happy with it after about 1 month of use.

I'm on my second bottle of this serum. I'm not sure if it's benefitting me, but I don't have any reaction to it (I do not have sensitive skin) and it absorbs easily. I am very interested in knowing the percentage of Vitamin C. Every other Vit C out there has the % right on its label. Why not this one?? Does anyone know?

After years of searching for a skin care routine that works for me, this vitamin C was a huge part of it. This paired with their sunscreen makes your skin so glowy and fresh looking. It has cleared up my acne scars and helped prevent new zits. It brightens up your face and makes your makeup sit so well. Take it from someone who has had acne for 10+ years.
