Good to know: Short shelf life product (see "description" below). Made fresh every week (orders with C-Glow may get shipped a few days late). We recommend to start using it as soon as you get it. The shelf life can be prolonged if you store it in the fridge. If that does not sound comfortable, you can decant some in this EMPTY mini bottle

description

Pure Vitamin C (or Ascorbic Acid) is a 3-in-1, clinically proven superstar that gives the skin environmental protection (antioxidant), boosts the skin's own collagen production and fades hyperpigmentation. This water-light formula contains 15% Vitamin C & extra antioxidants to give a healthy glow, even and firm the skin.

The disadvantage of pure Vitamin C is that it is super unstable, and hard to formulate with. This formula uses a low pH and extra antioxidants to help to stabilize Vitamin C, but even like this, C-Glow comes with a relatively short, 8 months shelf-life. 

The official shelf life of C-Glow is 8 months from production, unopened. To ensure maximum freshness, we manufacture small batches of C-Glow every week. On average, by the time a C-Glow reaches our customers it is about 2-4 weeks “old”.  To minimize oxidation & maximize freshness, we recommend to store it in the fridge, where it keeps fresh even beyond its official 8 months shelf life. If going to the fridge every day for your C-Glow does not sound comfortable, we recommend to use this 10 ml mini bottle. You can easily decant a few weeks worth of C-Glow into it, and store the mini bottle in the bathroom, while having the C-Glow bottle in the fridge. Click here for the C-Glow mini bottle.  

Who is it for?

Everyone looking for a light-textured, pure Vitamin C + extra antioxidants formula. However, if you have sensitive, redness-prone skin, we do not recommend C-Glow due to its low pH and high pure acid content. 
Skin Type
all skin types except for sensitive 
Skin Problem
dark spots, aging, dull and uneven skin
Texture
fast absorbing, water-like, weightless liquid

how to use it?

Apply a few drops to the face after cleansing, before using other serums and/or creams. Ideal to use in the AM, but can be applied in the PM as well. As the C-Glow formula is water-like, we recommend that you put a drop directly onto your face and quickly pat it on with your other hand.

Shelf life: 8 months from production (unopened), 3 months PAO (period after opening).

I have never had a serum give the results that this one did. Practically overnight I could see a difference, my sister pointed it out! Hands down the best I’ve been able to find.

Best Vitamin C I've ever used (sensitive skin)

I've tried quite a few vitamin Cs, I hate how so many on the market have fragrance in so I have to avoid them or they make my skin react because I have very reactive and sensitive skin, but this is hands down the best serum I've ever used, even just using it once my skin was visibly brightened, I noticed that if i went without using it for a couple days and then happened to remember to put it on, I would get compliments from people about how glowy and radiant my skin looked that day. Such a great price too, will definitely purchase again once I run out.

I see results with this!

I've tried a number of different vit C serums. I think they were slowly helping but still kinda meh. Then this was recommended to me. I did not put the bottle in the fridge and it didn't turn color until the very end. After that I kept it in the fridge. But after the FIRST bottle I saw a difference on the back of my hands! I'm a fan.

Best vitamin C serum! (I tried many)

Very effective formula, great base layer that evens out my complexion and speeds up the healing of any small scar, too. Great, light texture, absorbs very quickly. I have sensitive skin, but no problems with this one, slight tinging and rosiness go away quickly, no irritation. I follow with the hydrating toner before the serums. As for the title, I did experiment with several different brands, and tried a few truly expensive luxury ones too. This vitamin C works best for me by far, and the price is unbeatable.

Watery and lovely

Really Really love it. I have combination skin. Didn't irritated me at all. Smells a little like iron, but it is not annoying. It is watery. Recommended from me.
