Product Spotlight: Godiva Vitamin C Serum

Product Description:

Godiva Vitamin C 10% Serum helps lighten and brighten skin, diminish fine lines and minimize skin pores. This rejuvenating formula gives firmer skin on contact and fights free radicals. Vitamin C is a powerful anti-oxidant that enhances the skin's ability to combat the visible signs of aging. It improves skin's texture, clarity and tone at any age. Godiva uses bioactive Vitamin C which retains its potency for up to 3 years at room temperature.

Direction: Apply 2 to 4 drops morning and evening to clean skin. Enjoy it on your face, neck, nape, chest and back of hands. Follow with Godiva LicoWhite Cream to even out skin tone, or Godiva Fruit Acid Cream and Godiva Face and Neck Firming Cream for younger, firmer skin.

Ingredients: Water, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate. Propylene Glycol, Glycerin, Sodium PCA, Sodium Citrate, Tetrasodium EDTA, Polysorbate-20, Imidazolidinyl Urea

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.

hi! just browsing. well ive been eying this for quite some time now. i wonder if this is the same vitamin C serum they use for their facials? coz i had a vitamin c facial done at godiva recently. as with having facials, i dont wash my face til the next day. and lo and behold, my skin wasnt oily at all when i woke up the next day and it looked really refreshed.

soapaholic, if you haven't found the product that works for you, you can try this out.

steph, if i'm not mistaken, yes, this is the same vitamin c serum they use in their facials.

hi there! how do you apply it, using fingers lang, you don't need to use cotton? and when do you apply it, before or after toner? i just bought mine yesterday and i really have no idea how to apply it. thanks. :)

musicalfanlovesminerals said...

hi yen! i apply this after toner and use my fingers only. this just needs 2-4 drops for your face. personally, i use 3 drops.
