Hylamide C25 Vitamin C Booster Serum is an effective vitamin C serum at a really good price. Most vitamin C serums are around $100 per ounce. But this one is a steal at just over $30. The vitamin C in this formula is also a super stabilized form of vitamin C, so it won’t oxidize on you after only a couple months. Apparently it won’t oxidize ever.
Vitamin C is an excellent ingredient for keeping skin healthy. It targets fine lines, dark spots, uneven texture, and can help brighten your skin overall. This serum provides a high enough concentration of vitamin C (25%) that you will certainly see results. It can take some time (several months) before you get really noticeable results. But even after just a few days to a week, you will see an overall more radiant complexion.
The formula also contains resorcinol (an antioxidant) and hydroxyphenoxy propionic acid, which is good at getting rid of skin pigmentation.
A cosmetic solvent called ethoxydiglycol forms the base of the formula. This gives the serum a super watery texture. There is no added fragrance, no parabens, no alcohol, no silicones, no animal products or animal testing, just active ingredients in a liquid base.
Ingredients: ethoxydiglycol, ethyl ascorbic acid, hydroxyphenoxy propionic acid, phenylethyl resorcinol
Overall, this is a really great option for all skin types (including sensitive). It’s a reasonably priced, effective, basic vitamin C serum. The only drawback is that it smells. Like really bad. Vitamin C on its own doesn’t smell good. But if that doesn’t bother you, then you should give this a try.
