Pixi Vitamin-C Serum // The August Review

Pixi Vitamin-C Serum

Vitamin C is one of those things that most should have in their routine but quite often it is overlooked. This was something I too came to realise. I was finding that I wasn't using the products I should for how I want my skin to look. I chose the Pixi serum as I had heard good things and was a good middle of the road price point. The product description says: 
"A glow-giving recipe that guarantees enviable results, add a pipette pump of this miracle-working Vitamin-C Serum to your morning routine and you won't be waiting long for visible results that you'll adore. Formulated with potent and antioxidant-rich Vitamin C, grapefruit water, ferulic acid, citrus fruit extracts and retinol this formidable formula helps boost collagen production for firmer and healthier skin, improved skin tone and texture, lifted luminosity and protection against free radicals and the effects of sun damage."

Pros

- Brightens skin.
- Found skin tone did improve, including the skin from my chin down to the decolletage. 
- Sinks into the skin fast.
- My skin does feel firmer.
- The bottle comes with a separate lid to help prevent oxidation. 
- It's affordable in the midst of Vitamin C's on the market.
- Only need a few drops.

Cons

- Not overly fond of the pipette style bottle.
- The smell is off putting and can be a con for some people.

The Verdict

This is going to be a product that, not everyone will get along with. Vitamin C is needed in most skincare routines but it can oxidise quickly if you do not store it properly. This bottle comes with the pipette separate in the box. Once used you should screw the lid back on rather than leave the pipette applicator in. If the solution goes a dark brown colour it means it's oxidised and will be less effective. I can see many people not storing this properly which is why I would say it wouldn't be for them. I'd recommend using a pump bottle serum instead. For those who are like me and keep everything clean and are a little OCD then this works so well. I've already ordered my second bottle! The smell can be a little off putting but once you've chucked everything else on your face you won't notice. 

As always, thanks for reading...
