I wanted to try this Vitamin C and hyaluronic acid serum by Mystelic Beauty because I have some hyperpigmentation due to aging and sun exposure, and I wanted to see if Vitamin C would lighten these spots at all, as it is said to do.
I used the serum for several weeks, and as a result some of the patches of hyperpigmentation on my left temple are clearly beginning to disappear from the outer edges inward. It has been slow but steady progress. It might be possible to achieve faster results with a laser, but why risk possible injury from a laser treatment when you don’t have to? It might also be faster to use some chemical-filled wonder cream, but I don’t want to slather a bunch of chemicals on my face. This serum is 98% natural, 72% organic and Made in the USA, so I trust it as something I can continue to apply on my face daily without harm.
This serum sinks in quickly and delivers moisture (the hyaluronic acid is present to assist with moisturization). Dont be scared of the hyaluronic acid ingredient–this serum feels smooth and soft, not at all abrasive or acidic, and it is not “citrusy” in terms of scent or texture.
I think individuals with sensitive skin can handle this product without trouble, as it feels very gentle–no burning or tingling sensations.
Full disclosure: (1) I received a free bottle to try, but I chose this product based on an actual skin condition I have and want to improve upon, and (2) if you use this serum twice daily as directed, to maintain the positive results you MUST wear sunscreen daily. This is not because there is anything amiss in the serum itself; it’s just that you will accrue sun damage and reverse the improvements brought about by the Vitamin C Serum if you go out into the sun unprotected.
All in all, I think this is a great serum for individuals who prefer all natural skin care solutions that feel mild but work effectively without causing any irritation.
