THis is a collaboration with SMARTR SKIN, who sent ME PRODUCT FOR REVIEW PURPOSES. ALL OPINIONS ARE MY OWN.
Almost two months ago, Smartr Skin sent me a couple of their products to experience. The Eye Treatment and Moisturizer impressed me greatly. I use simple routines and practices to care for my skin. Smartr Skin is a perfect fit for me. The company produces products that are vegan, cruelty free and paraban and phthalate free as well. Plus, they include natural ingredients that deeply nourish the skin.
I continue to use the eye treatment and the moisturizer and love them.
So when Smartr Skin offered to let me try another of their products, I enthusiastically agreed. To my delight, the company sent me their Smartr Skin Vitamin C Serum.
This is my first experience with a vitamin C serum. After using it daily for about a month, here are my results and my honest opinion.
A Better Idea for Skin Care
Smartr Skin is a physician created line of skin care products. The company embraces a whole-person view of health. They believe that feeling healthy and confident is a result of caring for the whole self…body, mind and spirit.
They also believe that smarter, higher quality ingredients lead to better results. Therefore, they’ve created custom formulations from clean ingredients that nourish the skin, from the inside out.
Smartr Skin Vitamin C Serum
This luxurious enriched serum smooths easily onto the skin of the face, neck and chest. Just a few drops is all that it takes.
The vitamin C serum contains skin supporting ingredients such as aloe, vitamins C and E, MSM, botanical hyaluronic acid, witch hazel, jojoba oil and horsetail, dandelion and geranium extracts.
The hyaluronic acid helps create new collagen, restoring the elasticity and structure of skin damaged over the years by the sun and harsh elements in the environment.
Smartr Skin Vitamin C Serum may be used twice a day, morning and evening. Check out my routine below.
Benefits of Vitamin C Serum
Regularly using vitamin C serum brings the following benefits:
- moisturizes and regenerates skin
- protects against sun damage
- soothes sunburns and irritations
- speeds the healing of acne and helps prevent scarring
- lightens dark spots on skin
- brightens and smooths complexion
- minimizes pores and fine lines
- tones and tightens skin
People with sensitive skin should test vitamin C serum on a small area of skin. Occasionally those with sensitive skin experience mild irritation. Use only a few drops and if applying during the day, finish with a SPF 50 or higher sunscreen.
Applying Vitamin C Serum
I added the serum to my daily skin care routine. At this time, I’m only using it in the evenings.
After washing my face with a gentle foaming micellar cleanser and applying micellar solution as a toner, I add four drops of the vitamin C serum to the palm of my hand.
Beginning with the delicate under eye area, I smooth the serum gently beneath both eyes and over the lids and then down the bridge and sides of my nose. Using my fingertips I apply a small amount of serum to my forehead. Next I focus on the area around my mouth, including the tip of the nose. And finally, I apply serum to both checks and my lower face, including the chin and jawline.
I smooth any remaining serum over my neck and upper chest.
Truly, a small amount of serum goes a long way! It absorbs quickly into my skin without leaving an oily feeling or residue.
After the serum dries, I apply Smartr Skin Moisturizer over my entire face. That’s it for my evening routine. In the mornings, I skip the serum and apply Smartr Skin Eye Treatment over my whole face. Then I apply makeup.
You may use the vitamin C serum in the mornings too. Just make sure you apply sunscreen as well.
I love this addition to my skin care routine.
I’d already noticed improved smoothness, softness and clarity using the Eye Treatment and Moisturizer. Including the serum, my skin responded by becoming firmer.
My skin texture is better and my pores, which are large, are so much smaller. Fine lines are disappearing. Overall, my skin is brighter, more toned and elastic, and my complexion has evened out.
I’m thrilled with the results and the company’s high standards of quality. I just placed another order.
