Cellex-C Advanced-C Serumโฃ

Cellex-C is a pioneer when it comes to vitamin C skincare products. Their Advanced-C Serum is formulated with the patented Cellex-c complex, a highly effective complex, backed up by clinical studies and an anti-aging classic; it is the Coco mademoiselle of vitamin C serums! What makes this vitamin C serum unique: โฃ
1. It contains 17.5% Ascorbic Acid which is a combination of Hydrolyzed ascorbic acid and L-ascorbic acid.โฃ

2. It is formulated with L-tyrosine which helps deliver Ascorbic acid deep in the skin & helps to stimulate fibroblasts enabling them to create more collagen.โฃ

3. It contains Zinc which helps support increased collagen turnover stimulated by ascorbic acid it is an essential component of collagenase, which is required to dismantle old & stiffened collagen in order for new collagen to be constructed.โฃ

4. The collagen-stimulating function of ascorbic acid in this formula is enhanced with the included collagen protectors such as Ergothioneine and resveratrol .โฃ
Iโ€™ve gone through several bottles of this serum over the years. Itโ€™s a lightweight watery serum that should be used once every 24 hours; I donโ€™t use it with retinoids at the same time, could be too harsh. My skin is combo & used to high concentrations of L-ascorbic acid so this formula doesnโ€™t irritate or dry out my skin; however, this is a strong Vitamin C, so the skin must be worked up to this concentration. After using it for a few months you can see that it leaves the skin firm & glowy, visibly evens out the texture & really has the ability to reduce shallow fine lines! While the skinceuticalโ€™s C E Ferulic works better for brightening pigmentation & photoprotection, I believe the Cellex-c one is much more effective in firming the skin & diminishing fine lines! It also doesnโ€™t smell like Ferulic acid! My only problem with this serum is that it oxidizes crazy fast! I suggest you either buy the 15ml bottle or place the serum in several mini amber bottles to avoid oxidation!โฃ
In summary, this is a powerful anti-aging serum containing a high concentration of Cellex-C Complex signature formula, free-radical scavengers & collagen protectors which works wonders for making the skin firm & smooth. Recommended to everyone except people with sensitive skin. โฃ
