Hello! Finally here I'm writing a new review =D
First of all I want to talk about Vitamic C benefits. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that slows the rate of free-radical damage - free radicals are unstable molecules that damage collagen and cause skin dryness, fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin C may also reduce sunburn caused by exposure to ultraviolet B radiation and prevent the consequences of long-term sun exposure, which can lead to skin cancer! Wow.
So what can Vitamin C really do?
Here's what a well-formulated, stably-packaged product with vitamin C can do for your skin:
✦✧Protect skin cells and skin's support structure from UV-related damage
✦✧Improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin
✦✧Strengthen skin's barrier response
✦✧Promote collagen production
✦✧Enhance effectiveness of peels and microdermabrasion
✦✧Lessen hyperpigmentation (at levels of 3% or greater)

I've been having a lot of closed comedones and pimples lately.. I think that summer is the cause. It's super hot here so this weather seems to aggravate my skin condition. Not to mention that I started getting these nasty pimples last summer.. Before my skin was pretty fine -_-'' Okay, stop with nagging lol.
So basically I can't say that Vitamic C serum helps me a lot. When I just started using it I was really amazed because comedones on my chin seemed to dissapear. But not, after using it for ~3 weeks I still see them clearly. Also I was expecting blackheads on my nose to dissapear, but this haven't happened too.
The only one thing that this product did for my skin is helping scars to dissapear. I got a really big pimple on my cheek and it left a scar. But because of this serum it's dissapearing really fast. Ah! I also have a scar on my forehead for half a year or even more.. Annoying red spot that doesn't go away ._. But since I started using this serum I noticed that it seems to dissapear slowly. I really hope that it will dissapear completely when I finish using this bottle!
1) You shouldn't use it if you want to apply a benzoyl peroxide later on. They will neutralize each other and won't work properly and will leave an orangey spot. When I just get this serum I didn't know this so I just applied both products and next morning woke up with a kinda orange spot. Thanks god it went away next day.
2) When you apply it on your face for the first time it may sting and be quite drying. But personally I haven't experienced this.
