Timeless Skin Care Hyaluronic Acid Vitamin C serum is my must-have in the summer. It is so light and invisible on the skin yet delivers major results in terms of skin hydration and lifting that I sometimes feel like I need no other skin care products other than that. Of course, I know, SPF, cream, toner- all are still part of my routine on a daily basis but, damn, this one is such an independent item that I can't stop raving about it.
Claims from the manufacturer:
This serum is a combination of our Hyaluronic Acid, Matrixyl 3000 and Vitamin C without Vitamin E so it can be used on oily skin
Provide yourself with the natural vitamins, minerals and other essentials your skin needs
Feel much more youthful, happier and more confident about having the skin that you have, while also looking younger
Vitamin C - antioxidant that evens skin tone and helps build collagen. We use a 5% concentration of Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, which does not decay as rapidly as L-Ascorbic Acid.
Hyaluronic acid - one of the most powerful hydrating and moisturizing ingredients on the market today. Holds up to 1000 times its weight in water. This serum contains 1% HA.
Matrixyl 3000™ - major wrinkle fighting ingredient used as an alternative to Retin A. Increases collagen synthesis up to 350%. We use a 1.5% concentration for maximum results
Directions from the manufacturer:
apply 2-3 drops to fingertips and smooth onto cleansed skin morning and night
water, magnesium ascorbyl phosphate, aloe barbadensis, glycerin, hyaluronic acid, matrixyl 3000™, benzylalcohol, dehydroacetic acid.
Timeless Skin Care Hyaluronic Acid Vitamin C serum is made for people with oily skin. Yes, you heard me right. They actually took into consideration that nearly all vitamin C serums come with vitamin E additives making it more oily substance that it should be. Applying a little bit of C+E mix onto the skin is good but using it 2 x day for antioxidant properties does however not end up well. My struggle is that when after locking such product it in with SPF, no matter what I try, the combo is deadly mess for my skin and is a one-way route to becoming a grease-ball within 2 hours.
Whatever Timeless Skin Care made in their labs is a true gem! They even have a gem icon on their packaging. That's how precious this stuff is 🙂 Alright, jokes aside -> This serum is magic!!! It is unscented, transparent, light as water, absorbs in seconds, can be layered, can be mixed with any skin care, is rich in antioxidants and anti-aging goodness, absorbs entirely leaving zero finish on the skin. Plus, it comes in refill bottles so you can never-ever run out of it.
The packaging is fairly simple. Blue bottle, sticker stating the ingredients, lovely pipette that gives out enough product for several applications. The serum is very watery and applies well on the skin. I did run out of my first bottle ages ago within 3 months when I was using it 1 x day. Now with 2 x day use, even in the summer it lasts me 6-7 weeks before I have to refill my bottle. One important thing, keep it off direct sunlight and store your refill preferably in the fridge.
Even though the vitamin C form used in this product is photostable, better be safe than sorry. The manufacturer advises it too. So go on, put it in the fridge! What about other skin types other than oily, you may ask. To be honest, this stuff is amazing for any skin, especially for those who doesn't like the feel of product on their skin. If you are looking for more heavy duty vitamin C, try their vitamin C + E and Ferulic Acid serum. It is more suitable for people with dry to very dry skin. Final verdict- order it now and enjoy my favorite holy grail serum of all times. Kati approved 😉
