My love for Vitamin C…I Feel like Vitamin C is the super-man in my battle against wrinkles. I was introduced to it 8 years ago in beauty school and we have been best friends ever since. Vitamin C Alleviates topical signs of aging, helps improve firmness, and helps prevent sun damage and hyper-pigmentation.
But I have yet to make a commitment to any one particular brand. I have tried them all and for a while there I was going steady with the Jan Marini C-esta… which I still love but I’m just having a hard time with the most recent price increase of $77 to $90 a $13 jump! So I decided to take a step out on my love for JMSR and try Crystal C
by Tu’el formerly Eva’s Esthetics. Here is what I found.
I like how lite it was and completely smell-free, which is considerable since the JMSR C-esta had a mild odd smell. The Crystal C layered nicely with my other products (a glycolic acid serum, moisturizer, and SPF) I applied Crystal C first. The product didn’t roll or build up under my moisturizer. At first, I did notice a few breakouts but they cleared up after a few days and my skin was flawless after. The only difference I noticed was that the JMC left my skin tight/firmer and I didn’t get that with the Crystal C.
Overall… 4.5 stars… the price is nice at $57/oz vs. $90/oz for JMC. Lite, fragrance-free. A great change for the warmer months.
