Hundreds agree this Vitamin C serum is ‘amazing’ as they hail its quick results

Vitamin C

“I’m shocked and amazed by the improvement in my skin after three weeks”

Hundreds of men and women across the globe have been hailing the results of a Vitamin C product available here in Ireland – and we at 100% agree.

The Neostrata 15% Vitamin C + PHA Serum promises to brighten the skin, target the look of dark spots, skin discolouration and texture.

It contains a number of active ingredients that target all four of these areas and work together as follows:

  • 15% Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid): Brightens appearance of skin discolourations to reveal a natural, radiant complexion. Helps visibly fade dark spots and dark patches.
  • 2% Gluconolactone (Polyhydroxy Acid): Gently exfoliates skin surface, including the look of dark spots, for a more even tone and texture. Sloughs off surface skin cells so Vitamin C can absorb into fresh, renewed surface layers.
  • 1% Feverfew Extract: Gentle botanical antioxidant supports protection against drying environmental aggressors, such as pollution, that could worsen uneven tone. Enhances skin’s naturally occurring antioxidants.
  • Green Tea Extract (EGCG): Boosts Vitamin C antioxidant capacity.

I’ve always been a fan of Vitamin C serums, and have tried brands from all price-brackets – but this one will be a firm fixture in my skincare routine for the foreseeable future.

Vitamin C

The results over just two weeks of use have been great and after reading some of the hundreds (298) of reviews online, I know I’m not alone on that note.

It’s not cheap at €69.95 for a 15ml bottle, but it should last months with just two drops needed each morning.

One customer reviewing the product, wrote: “I’m shocked and amazed by the improvement in my skin after three weeks of using this serum in the morning and before bed!

“For the past several years, I have been trying to improve the signs of sun damage and hyperpigmentation on my face and neck. I have used several medical-grade products – without any improvement.

“I nearly gave up trying to even my skin tone and reduce brown spots. Thankfully, I gave this product a try! I have visible improvement, including a couple of larger spots of sun damage (the spots have faded by about 50%). Additionally, my face and neck look more evenly toned and much less ‘spotty’.”

Another said: “Best product I have ever tried. After spending thousands on expensive creams and even laser treatments, this product works better than all other products combined.”

A third customer added: “This product has made my skin amazingly soft as well as levelled out the colour of my medium complexion.

“As a HUGE bonus to my skin it actually it has helped push any small blackheads out of the skin. I’m 56 and still suffer from blackheads and whiteheads this has helped tremendously.”

Meanwhile, another said: “I am very picky about my vitamin C products and this really surprised me in a great way. The texture is perfect. No weird scent. Brightened my skin. Love it!”

How to use

Apply to clean, dry face, neck and décolletage every morning, and follow with a Neostrata moisturiser.

Store the product upright in a cool, dark place and open it with care as the contents may be under pressure. Product colour may change over time but remains effective.

Pro Tip from the brand: Use an SPF face cream every day – even when it’s cloudy outside – to help fend off dark spots and uneven skin tone.

For best results, choose a broad spectrum SPF of 30 or above and reapply sunscreen at least every 2 hours, more frequently for fairer skin types.
