2 reviews for 12% Ascorbic Acid + Briteodant Complex

    When I say this serum took my skin to the top! Just after 2 weeks of consistently using it, i was getting compliments on how good my skin looks. My skin is radiant and even toned. It’s very lightweight and a little goes a long way. This is the best vitamin c on the market at a great price. Just a tip, this cannot be applied at the same time as your niacinamide.

    I have totally fallen in love with this serum! It’s a well balanced, stable Ascorbic Acid. Great protection against photo aging. This South African brand performs incredibly well and surpaces many international brands
