In the past year, all I´ve been hearing about within the world of beauty, is Vitamin C. And not just supplements – for your skin. And since trying it for myself, I can safely say, it has changed my complexion entirely. Want to find out why, and which product I can´t live without? Read on…

I suffer from minor pigmentation and dark spots on my face, which is a combination of sun damage and hormones. To most outsiders, it might not be that visible, but I´m always quite self conscious about it. After sessions with various facialist, they recommended I try SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF, which is a powerful antioxidant that combines phloretin, pure vitamin C, and ferulic acid. These combined helps shield the skin from damaging free radicals, whilst restoring, evening out the skin tone and boosting a brighter complexion…

At first I didn´t see much change, but as with everything, persistence and patience is everything, especially when it comes to your skincare. After nearly 3-months of consistent use, alongside my daily SPF50 moisturiser (I now use this all year around) and other seasonal beauty products – my skin feels so much brighter, smoother and even. The best part? This baby lasts for a minimum of 72 hours (which helps balance out the hefty price tag).

Anyone else suffer from pigmentation and can recommend any other products or tips? I would love to hear from you.

    Hi Anneli,

    I’ve been using prescription retin a for a few months now and have noticed an incredible difference to my dark spots and overall texture – I was thinking of buying the Skinceuticals product you mentioned to add under my spf moisturiser (spf50) but was put off by the fact the active vitimin c ingredient only stays active for around three months.

    Do you use this in the day time or at night (or both), what do you think of the 3mnth shelf life? Did you use it all up in that time?

      I only use it during the day! It´s lasted for a good while (you only need a bit at a time). So far, so good from my side. But it really is so individual! And with everything,it´s maintenance. X
