I’m finally getting on with some skincare posts. I have typical combination skin – dry cheeks and an oily t-zone. I have hyperpigmentation from acne that I had as a teenager. I get occasional breakouts, usually closed comedones which when extracted contain hard sebum. If I haven’t grossed you out keep on reading.
I’ve been researching skincare a lot over the last few months. I love makeup but without a good skincare routine your makeup will never look its best. I’ve been experimenting with serums and creams designed to improve the texture, luminosity and condition of your skin.
I bought the Indeed Labs Vitamin C24 Facial Creme from Boots a few days ago. I’ve used it a few times at night and wanted to blog my first impressions.
This creme stings. Now at first I thought it was because I’d done some extracting with my remover (from The Body Shop) so I reasoned that because my pores were unblocked and maybe a bit sore that was why. But after using it a few times since then my skin still stings when I use this. I did some more reading online and found this was a common side effect. I now think it makes sense as it’s a fairly high concentration of vitamin C that you’re applying to your face.
Topical vitamin C is hailed as a must-have ingredient in skincare as it helps to firm the skin and fade post-acne marks. This is the main reason why I bought it. I have hyperpigmentation from acne and I read that vitamin C in skincare is very beneficial. In the ingredients list you’ll see vitamin C listed as asorbic acid. It has antioxidant properties and helps to fight sun damage, encourage collagen production and improves skin texture with regular use.
I’ve only used it a few times but once I’ve used it for a solid month every evening I will do a proper review for you all.
