Vitamin C Skincare Comparison and The Ordinary Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Solution 20% in Vitamin F

The ordinary vitamin C review Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Solution 20%

Where should I start? I don't want to dive into chemistry too much but you've probably heard that vitamin C is good for brightening the skin. All natural way to more even skintone without any harsh chemicals. Now that's what I like. Beside anti-age effect, it's also great for redness, dullness, pigmentation and sun protection as vitamin C is antioxidant after all. I've hunted down different vitamin C skin products as we all know, I need a more unified and brighter complexion. I'm happy to say that I'm most pleased with The Ordinary Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Solution 20% in Vitamin F. It's affordable at 18,90€, effective and oil-based which is a total score for my dry skin. Texture is pretty much perfect - really similar to dry oil. Sinks into the skin really fast, it can be layered before makeup and doesn't leave any gritty residue. Skin looks more healthy and I love to use it in the morning or before bedtime. Yup, I would warmly recommend this version to all my fellow girls with dry skin.

SLO
Kje naj začnem? Odkrito rečeno se na kemijo ne spoznam najbolje, vendar sem že velikokrat slišala priporočila o vitaminu C za bolj sijočo polt. Je naravna pot do bolj poenotene polti brez uporabe škodljivih kemikalij. In ravno to mi je všeč. Poleg sijoče polti je lahko vitamin C odličen dodatek za nego proti gubicam, pusti polti, rdečici, hiperpigmentaciji. Vitamin C je prav tako antioksidant, ki lahko čez dan dodatno zaščiti kožo pred sončnimi žarki. Polovila sem najbolj popularne pripravke z vitaminom C, ki so me prepričali z enostavno in uporabno teksturo. Prav tako pa so dodatno izboljšali izgled moje puste, suhe in utrujene kože. Prvo mesto zaupam The Ordinary Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Solution 20% v vitaminu F. Za okoli 18,90€ na Beautyology (btw, ta stran je najbolj informativna stran za pravo izbiro izdelka!) ni ravno najcenejši med The Ordinary, vendar se z dokaj suho-oljnato teksturo odkupi vsem s suho kožo. V kožo se lepo vpije in sloji z nadaljnjo nego. Prav tako ga rada uporabljam pred nanosom ličil, saj doda moji koži malce več nege za čez dan. Vpije se dokaj hitro, obenem pa nima zrnate teksture kot večina klasičnih izdelkov z vitaminom C. Moja koža izgleda po nanosu celo malce bolj zdrava in gladka na otip. Priporočam vsem z suhim/normalnim tipom kože.

Vitamin C review and comparison: The ordinary Klairs

As far as the other vitamin C serums and solutions go, I'm pretty content with The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres. Although it has several drawbacks like gritty texture due to water-free and oil-free formula, I still like to add it in my night time routine. And price at 5,90€ is just unbeatable. The best way to use it? I layer it over my wet face so the molecules spread easier. It leaves a slightly tacky feeling which disappears after 30 min. Again, results are the same but you need to invest more time into skincare routine. Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin C Serum (Althea online store) has a lovely serum consistency and it's really lightweight. I really like it's texture and no wonder it got so many praises. Downside? You need to order it from Korea and it's about 18,40€ a piece, which means additional shipping and tax costs. Still, formula and texture is phenomenal for any skintype.

V primerjavo vitamin C izdelkov sem dodala The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres. Pri ultra nizki ceni 5,90€ ima le ta nekaj slabosti. Tekstura je zaradi vitamina C v kroglicah na otip zrnata in spominja na piling. Najlažji način ga je nanesti preko vlažnega obraza, kjer se nato izdelek raztopi. Ravno zato je izdelek bolj primeren za nočno nego, saj pusti lepljiv občutek kar nekaj časa. Rezultati so dokaj podobni - bolj poenotena polt, bolj sijoča polt, ampak je treba vložiti malce več dela. Tudi Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin C Serum (Althea, 19,00€) je eden tistih, ki ima prijetno teksturo in je na koži lahkoten kot serum. V kožo se vpije takoj in ne pušča oljnatega občutka. Me ne preseneča, da je njegova popularnost visoka. Slabost? Serum je potrebno naročiti direktno iz Koreje, kar doda redni ceni še dodatne stroške.
