Good and affordable vitamin c serum
Posted by 5024363673104466316 on May 09, 2013
This was my first ever vitamin c serum purchase. Having suffered from melasma and sun-induced hyperpigmentation from pregnancy, I was looking for an organic and affordable vitamin c serum. Mad Hippie seems to tick all the boxes, with ferulic acid added too. To be honest, when I first tried it, the morning I woke up my skin looked slightly irritated (redness). So I immediately stopped using it. But I've recently given it a try again after 4 months' absence, and I'm starting to love the results. I must say that it's not an overnight result, and I also apply spf30 sunscreen religiously everyday. But after 1 month daily usage I've noticed tightened pores and an overall brightening (not much, but noticeable). It has not completely faded the acne scars or sunspots. I guess as with all skincare, you have to be patient and continue to protect your skin from the sun with high spf sunscreen. I do also feel that my skin feels tighter now. I only apply this in the morning before my moisturiser and spf, to give extra antioxidant protection from the sun. With regards to application, it glides on very smoothly on skin, and I only need to use 3-4 drops for my face. I think 1 bottle may last me 6 months. It has not caused me any breakout.

Just a big drop will cover my face and neck. Lightweight, sinks in well, smells nice to me and keeps my face hydrated and radiant.

Se absorbe muy rapidamente, no deja sensación de pegajoso. Contiene principios activos muy beneficiosos para la cara. Excelente serum.

I've been using this on my face for about the past week or so and it's brightened up my complexion a good deal. It is a lot thicker than most serums, so you don't need to use very much. And I haven't noticed any irritation/redness/flaking. The only thing that bothers me is the smell - it reminds me of one of those super-strong smelling glade air freshener plug-ins. Seriously. It's too strong. So I have to knock a star off for that. I'm going to use up the rest of the bottle and hopefully the good results will continue.

Nice smell, it smells so fresh and natural, non-chemical! It absorbs into the skin fast and it tightens a lot..which I don't like because I have very tight skin and no wrinkles so I really didn't need that. Feels a bit like I'm wearing a mask, until I add some moisturizing face cream and then the tightening-mask-feeling goes away. I use this mostly at night, I feel it's a bit too much to wear during the day as it makes the skin pretty shiny :)
Good basic serum

I love the floral scent of this serum, but it is rather pricey. They should state the % of vitamin c in this serum. I find that this isn't as effective as the home one I make, but in a pinch for lazy periods I use this.
Does what it says!

Loving this product! This is the first time I am trying this and i'm falling in love already. I really felt my skin tightened, refreshed and brighten. I put this in the morning and evening. I also love how the serum is distributed so that it will not contaminate the whole bottle. Price is reasonable as well :) Will buy it again or will try other product from Mad Hippie!
Smells nice, seems to work fine.

Only had this a few weeks. I think it is good for my skin. I had combination skin with very slight acne. Nothing I've ever tried has ever WOW'ed me...I've never used something for three months and seen a dramatic difference with any product. This hasn't done much either...but its probably doing what its supposed to do. It glides on easily and is easy to use. Feels and smells good. Feels nourishing.

그럼 뭐 사는거죠. 근데 써봐야 알죠. 아무리 좋아도 본인에게 안 맞으면 말짱 돌리도니까. 질감이 살짝 미끈덩한데 참을만하다 싶어질때 사라집니다. 그정도 감수하면 충분히 써줄만한 놈입니다.

Have been using this for about a week. It absorbs quickly, tightens pores, and controls oil. Dropper application is really handy; however, the bottle cap can't be screwed on tightly, it loosens by itself.
