Did you find TruSkin Vit C to be drying? It was on my radar for a bit as it seemed to be loved by many on amazon but it looks like they have witch hazel in it. I’ve had bad experiences with Vit C Serums that contain Witch Hazel – drying for my skin. I had tried this one before All Natural Advice and it was way tooo drying

Jesus Christ …I was about to post the exact same thing. Its brutal and happens just like you described. I’m dermarolling at 2mm and using no minoxidil for 24hrs after. I did a little research and purchased the following serum to apply directly after I dermaroll and again another 12hrs, and 24hrs: https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B00PL3DK26/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_fabc_zedYFbGM0W4QA
Next time I dermaroll I’ll try it out and let you know!

Thank you so much for this amazing list! Can anyone comment on the quality of the All Natural Advice Vitamin C serum {link}? I picked it because it is (by far) the most popular on Amazon Canada. Now I’m thinking of replacing it with the Timeless serum or one of the options from TO.

Here are the ingredients:
Aqua (Deionzed Water), Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C), Hamamelis Virginiana Water (Witch Hazel), Cassia Angustifolia Seed Polysaccharide (Plan Based Hyaluronic Acid), Dimethyl Sulfone (MSM), Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract (Organic Aloe), Ferulic Acid, Glycerin (Kosher, Vegetable), Simondsia Chiensis Oil (Organic Jojoba), Centella Asiatica Extract (Organic Gotu Kola), Equisetum Arvense Extract (Dandelion), Geranium Maculatum Extract (Wild Geranium), Arginine,

Is this a good Retin A product to incorporate into my routine as a 22 year old man? I use a SPF 50 Broad spectrum moisturizer daily and some BP for acne otherwise.

Hello everyone good evening.

Has anyone tried this one from Amazon? by All Natural products.

Has anyone tried All Natural Advice Vitamin C and Vitamin E serum? I was checking the Timeless price on Amazon and this one popped up too, it looks really similar and its a huge bottle! Also, they are a Canadian company, and seem to promise fresh batches. I still have half a bottle of OST C20, but I might try this next. Available on Amazon Prime in Canada too!

Some days my skin looks great, other days it looks like ass. Lots of tiny whitehead looking bumps all over my forehead. Any thoughts, comments, or input is appreciated 🙁

Current routine, been on this for about 6 weeks:

26F, dry skin, main concerns are dry skin from tret, closed comedones, whatever the eff is going on with my face in the above photos, and PIH. Located in Canada/pacific northwest

Thanks!

Ok so I have a friend who gave me this Vit C last month. Is it something that is ok to use with any product?

What step in a skin care routine does one use alpha arbutin? I just purchased The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA and not sure when to use it!

Current routine for the last few months:

I am struggling a lot with dryness, PIE/PIH, and peeling, I purchased the AA 2% + HA to address PIE/PIH specifically. Could I use it every AM after Vitamin C? Or would it be better to use with the Glycolic Acid 7% every other night?

Thanks!

For the Derma E one, one of the reviews mentions a “neurotoxin”. Is that a concern or not?

I think Ill get the Derma E then. Ill use the hydro boost for the night cream for now as well, and see if that works.

So in total:

-20% Vitamin C Serum – 60 ml / 2 oz Made in Canada – Certified Organic Ingredients + 11% Hyaluronic Acid + Vitamin E Moisturizer + Collagen Boost https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00PL3DK26/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

-Derma E you linked above, or a chemical one to find

-A ++++ SPF 50 + Sunscreen

-Neutrogena for moisturizer

Anything Im missing? Edit: how about this instead of derma e for exfoliant: https://www.amazon.ca/Ordinary-Glycolic-Toning-Solution-240ml/dp/B071914GGL/ref=sr_1_10?crid=27FVBSHOC0Z28&keywords=chemical+exfoliant&qid=1559343757&s=beauty&sprefix=chemical+ex%2Cbeauty%2C152&sr=1-10

The deleted post on pigmentation subreddit by /u/zenona was asking about a dubious vitamin C he/she bought on Amazon


i had a look at the ingredients for you and uploaded it to COSDNA.
Click here to view it.

  • The product uses Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (SAP), a vitamin C that is effective and stable.
  • MSM is added to aid penetration
  • Based on the ingredients, it looks good. I recognise many beneficial ingredients like witch hazel, ferulic acid, good preservative (no paraben), Centella asiatica etc

I am concerned about the “green washing” of this product ingredients. I do not believe the ingredient list is complete as some ingredients like emulsifier are required for a formula like this.
Also SAP is the only vitamin C i see and they claim all natural. Rubbish. SAP is synthetic. 20%? i like to check that as the Recommended percentages for SAP is:

  • Daily skin care 0.2-2%
  • Sun care products 0.2-1%
  • Lightening products >3%
  • Solubility: It is possible to prepare solutions of up to 64% in water,

I have seen many products sold over the internet that claims to have certain actives that are questionable. Personally i have bought a claimed “30%” vitamin C serum on eBay that was bullshit. i did Vitamin C test and found it contained very little and based on the ingredient list and understanding of Ascorbic acid, the retailer is lying. I have requested the seller to contact the manufacturer and requested they removed the misleading product description that it contained 30% vitamin C. lol i am no cosmetic cop though.

hope this gives you an insight and perhaps buy from more reputatable companies in the future? I am not located in US, so i am not sure the regulations in USA. In Australia, the rules for ebay/etsy is more lax and i have seen such products on ebay/etsy. These companies may not be completely honest in their disclosure.


i think you should email the manufacturer and clarify the % of Vitamin C. 20% SAP is seriously dubious.

i came across this on beauty brains and i want to share with you regarding your Vitamin C serum.

There is definitely something stinky about this InstaNatural company. They use Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (SAP) as a vitamin C and they claim 20% of Vit C on the label, but SAP is supposed to be used at level up to few %. And 3% water solution of SAP has pH ca. 9-10!

… check it out.

fishy like your Vitamin C 20% SAP serum

>ah, forgot to tell you miss cosmetics police 😛 I msged them about their claim of 20% Vit C, and they say their product is an ‘equivalent’ to that ! Can you believe it ? Never again am I buying from unknown brand :/

/user/zenona asked on this thread

>thanks for being so thorough, I will save your comment to refer back to it after. I am using a basic retinol gel and asian moisturizer after. It’s not doing very much for me. I just ordered this. Do you think it’s safe for eyes?

my reply:
🙂 Retinol is good. Tbh, i find some asian products low in actives. I find it rather pointless to apply the same acitve in more than 1 product eg essence, serum, ampoule, cream. What a waste of time! i do use asian products in my skincare routine too but for hard hitters. I turn to western products for the “actives”.

YMMV. Everyone is different. The product advertise to use for dark circles. I would use it on my jawline as patch test (after testing behind the ears). Only after it passes the patch test behind the earrs and jaw, then i would introduce it to the eye area. You can also test on your inner arm.

I am blessed or perhaps “trained” by my doctor to have an eye area that can even take 0.1% Tretinoin. Oddly enough the bottom half of my face is more sensitive to tretinoin that the top half. i will peel more near the mouth and jaw line. You got to understand your skin and observe it.
