Mario Badescu- Vitamin C Serum

This Vitamin C Serum contains 7.5% Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) to reduce discoloration and brighten skin. Formulated with Hyaluronic Acid to retain skin's natural moisture and Collagen to enhance skin's firmness and elasticity. $45 for 1 oz.

In true Mario Badescu form when they say in their stylish bare bones fashion "vitamin c serum" you can expect a product that smells vaguely like the juice of your favorite citrus fruit. I detected a hint of lemon juice, myself. I love products that advise an "every-other-day" use, by the way. You can glean that there's some real power behind this serum. I added it to my current rather slapdash skin care regimen because I am "in-between" reviews of whole skincare lines therefore piecing together my favorites in my closet morning and night. Anyway, adding the vitamin c has done wonders for my visage thus far. It's a mild solution that doesn't seem to make a huge imprint at first but after two weeks, I have noticed a decline in the newer "freckles" (heh) I have culled this summer despite my best efforts. I also have a more even skintone in general and a brighter glow. I love Mario Badescu and have for years so I am hardly surprised that this stuff is so effective.

I can't agree more with using vitamin C it can play an important role in limiting and stopping free-radical damage. thanks for the tip on lemon juice.
