Many of us are still new to the concept of including serums in our daily skin care regime.
Even i started using them just a year back and since then it has become an indispensable part of my routine.
This is my second serum bottle.
The first one was Elcure Vit C serum Review HERE
What is a Serum?
Serums are a skin care product with high concentrations of certain active ingredients. These ingredients can be things like hyaluronic acid (to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles), vitamin C (to brighten the skin and help reduce the appearance of pigmentation and age spots) or glycolic acid (an exfoliant), to name just three.
Difference Between a Serum and A Moisturizer?
Moisturizers are formulated to keep the skin hydrated by putting a protective barrier between it and the outside. Serums are formulated to penetrate deeply into the skin to deliver key ingredients.

It comes in a tinted glass bottle .
Tinted because Vit C gets oxidised on exposure to sunlight.
I prefer to keep it in its original box and keep it somewhere cool.
Once the Vit C is oxidised it will be of no use to your skin.
You can know that your vit C serum is spoilt if the clear fluid starts turning yellow.
It comes with a dropper .
And you can easily monitor the amount of product you use.
It has watery and little sticky consistency.
And gets rapidly absorbed.
Feels sticky on the face for the initial 5 seconds and then makes your skin really smooth.
It has a very nice citrus smell.
But the smell fades once applied.
HOW I USE IT-
I use this after cleansing my face before applying moisturiser.
Just take 2 drops and lightly pat it all over the face focusing in the areas i want to brighten.
Last month i was going through the pimple phase and i got tiny zits on my chin that left behind red spots.
Whenever i go out i needed to use a concealer.
I used this product consistently morning+evening and have seen slight reduction in the redness.
But the one spot near the corner of the nose is still persisting.
It gets concealed with foundations/BB creams though.
Many people have claimed to see improvement from day 5 of using the product.
However in my case it is taking really long .
But different people have different skin types so i probably need to use this for longer duration.
You can clearly see the improvement in the pic.
My face feels firmer and more toned.
I'll use this for a month more and re-update the post to show the improvement.
