When people in the beauty industry say something, I tend to fall for it. No longer it is just the three or four basic daily products, now seem a serum must be included as well. Serum has been spoken about by beauty consultants at the beauty counters and at the dermatologist centre, serum it was again especially for night care before applying moisturiser. So okay, despite not being absolutely certain, I gave in to temptation and bought this Therapeutic Dermatologic Formula C Scape Serum (around RM137.00). And as always, lets get to know this serum before I speak my mind
C Scape Serum contains 10% Vitamin C, essential for the production of collagen and elastic tissue that keep the skin taunt, supple and healthy. An anti-oxidant which neutralizes harmful free radicals, it helps reduce fine lines, wrinkles due to sun-damage or skin aging and also lighten skin complexion. Therapeutic Dermatologic Formula (TDF) is a pioneer in AHA glycolic acid formulations, recommended by dermatologists, plastic surgeons, medical practitioners, hospitals and retail pharmacists.
The thick serum comes in an airtight opaque pump pack with a swivel top to hide the nozzle when not in use, so you don't have to worry about the vitamins going off. The serum must be kept chilled to prevent oxidization and can be applied day and night on the face, including under the eyes to lighten dark circles. Knowing very well that my skin is sensitive and breaks up easily, I only use it once a day at night after cleansing my face. The serum is easily spread and a few drops is enough. It absorbs quickly and didn't sting my face. Its orangey scent is pretty intense but oh-so-nice and lovely.
After two weeks of using, my skin is hydrated and is locked with enough moisture. Definitely clearer, evenly toned and the lines on my forehead less visible, I am not absolutely certain if it lightened my dark circles and complexion. Still, I'm quite pleased with this serum for the little glow I can notice. The only thing is that I sometimes forget to apply because the serum is kept in the fridge downstairs whereas the rest of my skin care are in the bathroom and on the dressing table. Unless of course I buy another mini fridge just for the sake of keeping this serum upstairs, showering, cleansing my face, coming down to apply the serum and back to the room upstairs I find it troublesome. So, I have to rethink if I will repurchase it because the lifespan of this serum is around 6 months the most and if I forget to apply, such a waste to money.
