I first learned about this product from Girltalk almost two years ago. Back then i had moderate acne. I was so prone to breakouts especially before my period. So because of the good reviews about this, I decided to try this out.
My first impression is that the product is non-greasy and it's easily absorbed by the skin. All I need is 3 drops for my face and neck. At first, I started using this product only once a day. I didn't see any difference in my acne, so I tried using it twice a day. Lo and behold, my acne cleared up! From then on, I never stopped buying this.
Although it says that this has a long shelf life, I find it best if it's consumed within 3 weeks after opening because after 3 weeks, it turns from a clear liquid to a whitish liquid. Yes, Vitamin C oxidizes easily.
Aside from anti-acne benefits, this is supposed to have anti-aging benefits and is supposed to make sunblock more effective. I can't say for certain if it's true though. I have to wait for a few more years to find out.
This may seem inexpensive at P274 (around $5.50) per bottle, but it's actually a splurge since one bottle only lasts me a month. So in a year, think of how much I spend for this stuff! But I see the effects on my skin so I will keep on buying this until my skin gets immune or I find something better.
Note: In the Godiva website, one bottle is sold for a whopping $22! Talk about a huge price jack! It's four times the price of one bottle locally. It's better if it's bought in a store.
Will I buy this again? Lol. I think I made myself quite clear.
