Vitamin C Glucoside
Vitamin Cg, or Ascorbyl Glucoside, is a Vitamin C derivative that activates once absorbed into the upper layers of the skin’s surface. With antioxidant benefits, this form of Vitamin C is frequently used in anti-wrinkle skincare products to help reduce facial lines over time.
Fragmented Hyaluronic Acid
This fast-absorbing form of Hyaluronic Acid is known for its ability to hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water. Acting like a sponge, it draws moisture into skin’s surface layers and expands as it absorbs. Hyaluronic Acid is known to help smooth and plump and is commonly used in skincare products intended to visibly reduce facial lines and refine texture.

- "It lasts a really long time because you don't have to use much- a little bit goes a long way." in 1 review
One noteworthy detail about this product is that when you apply it to the skin, it gets quite warm- it's initially uncomfortable and may feel like a bad reaction, but it's all part of the process. Once rubbed in, the consistency sort of feels like putty or gum, and it doesn't seem to fully sink into the skin. It doesn't seem to have any hydrating properties, either: this product is exactly what it claims to be, nothing more or less.
On a final note, my favorite thing about this product is that whilst being effective, it doesn't irritate my extremely sensitive skin! My skin is highly reactive and usually hates anything containing Vitamin C, but this concentrate has not resulted in any breakouts or irritation whatsoever and seems pretty skin-safe in terms of ingredients.
1.) when I first put the cream on, it gets really warm on my skin. Then I get a tinging, somewhat burning sensation. I thought these symptoms would subside after using it for a week, but it didn't.
2.) the scent lingers on my fingers, even after I wash my hands.
Overall, I have sensitive skin and this product had too many negative sensations that I could not deal with.
Application wise; the smell doesn’t bother me. It’s so thick, and it doesn’t absorb into the skin all the way. I only used half of one sample package for the daytime too. I’ll try it again, but so far, I am not loving it!
My skin is clear and it looks so much healthier! My acne scars aren't completely gone, but the rest of face is so healthy that I don't even notice my scars anymore. I've been wearing less makeup because of it. I haven't felt this good about my skin in ages!
I guess I just prefer my Vitamin C to be my base layer, so it must be very very thin. This was just much too thick and oily. Returned the next day.
