Exuviance just launched AF Vitamin C20 Serum Capsules, a potent formulation of maximum strength 20% Vitamin C and patented AminoFil® to restore and protect skin.
L-Ascorbic Acid, Vitamin C, is an essential co-factor in the production of collagen helping to improve firmness, strengthen skin’s matrix, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, brighten dark spots, and protect against daily environmental damage. Patented AminoFil® volumizes and targets the skin matrix for enhanced firming benefits.
“Vitamin C has long been a go-to topical treatment, but many formulas have been ineffective as they lose potency once opened,” says Barbara Green, Head, R&D and Clinical Research, NeoStrata Company, Inc. “Regular exposure to air and light cause the L-Ascorbic Acid to break down. The single-use capsule delivery mechanism of Exuviance AF Vitamin C20 Serum Capsules prevents ingredient degradation and ensures that consumers are getting maximum benefits from each application.”
I have to admit I am not huge fan of Vitamin c skincare products and don’t often have them in my skincare regimen. The reason is a while ago I tried product with high concentration of Vitamin c and had a bit of reaction (red bumps) so I had to discontinue the usage. When opportunity came to try newest release from Exuviance I was excited to give Vitamin C another shot and I am so glad I did. Since I did not want to risk another reaction I started using Vitamin C serum capsules at first 2-3 times a week, mixing it with my night time moisturizer and then gradually started using them on their own again only 2-3 times a week. If you are not sensitive I think you can use it every day, at night and make sure to follow with SPF in the morning. You are supposed to twist capsule open and dispense serum directly into palm. Using fingertips smooth lightly over skin in the evening and you can follow (or mix with) moisturizer or anti aging treatment. It is great that it can be used as a part of your existing regimen.
My experience after couple of weeks of use is firmer and smoother skin and my fine lines especially on my forehead are less visible. Skin is more even toned and some of the post acne scarring and redness is a lot lighter and not as noticeable. I love that these come as single use capsules so I can use it only couple of times a week without damaging the rest of product with exposing it to air and light. I am also happy that Vitamin C provides antioxidant protection against environmental damage. To those who suffer from discoloration, dark spots, son spots, melasma… Vitamin C is heaven sent and this concentration should visibly darken the spots and even out the whole complexion.
Exuviance AF Vitamin C serum capsules retail for only 69$ since you are getting 60 capsules – worth of 2 months of every day use or even longer if you decide to use them only couple of times a week. This is amazing value because all the serums that have such a high concentration of ingredients and are meant for lightening /discoloration/anti aging are typically well over 100$ (if not even more).
Exuviance AF Vitamin C20 Serum Capsules, retail for $69 (60 single-use capsules) available at Exuviance.com, ULTA, and ULTA.com from July 2017.
