Vitamin C+ Serum

Return to Previous Page

Why Should I use Vitamin C Serum?
Oxidation is basically a natural process that causes ageing.  It happens to most things including our bodies where it damages our skin cells and contributes to those lines and wrinkles.  It’s really hard to stop the ageing process, but anti-oxidants can help slow the process down – and this Vitamin C+ Serum is a powerhouse full of the best anti-oxidants.

Vitamin C+ Serum can help in a number of ways.

1) Helps slow the damage of oxidation and reduces deep lines and wrinkles

2) Repairs and regenerates skin cells to give your skin a healthier look

3) Stimulates collagen – giving tighter and firmer skin with less sagging

4) Fades hyper-pigmentation such as age spots, sun damage and acne marks

5) With a low pH of 2.0 it’s able to penetrate the skin and nourishes deep down

6) Reduces inflammation and helps tackle dry skin

Plus it’s a lightweight and fast absorbing formula that will improve skin texture and leave it glowing

What’s in it and how does it work?
The serum is packed with goodies but the 3 main ones are

Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid)
The ideal form of Vitamin C to use due to its ability to penetrate the skin and at 20%, this is one of the highest concentrations you’ll find.
It’s essential for the production of collagen and it’s fantastic at slowing the rate of damage to skin cells as well as helping repair any damage already done.

Glutathione
Naturally occurring in our bodies, it’s the mother of all anti-oxidants, but starts to deplete rapidly with age, stress and certain lifestyle choices.  It’s our best defence against ageing helping neutralise oxidation and preventing if from happening.
It’s also essential in our serum as it stabilises the Vitamin C and E.  Without it they would oxidise themselves and become ineffective.

MAP (Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate)
An excellent form of Vitamin C that is a lot more stable thatn L-Ascorbic Acid and has fantastic non-irritating properties.  Great for UV protection and repair, collagen production and really helps lighten up age spots, sun damage and spots left by acne.

In addition you’ll also find Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin E and Ferulic Acid.  You can see a full list of the ingredients in the tab up above.

Who can use it?
Suitable for ALL skin types
Because the serum contains MAP it means even the most sensitive skin types can use this without irritation.

If you’re also using our Copper Peptide serum then you should use Vitamin C in the morning and the Copper Peptide in the evening.  Applying at the same time will make them both ineffective.

How to use Vitamin C+ Serum
It should be used on a daily basis, but check out the instructions tab up above but also make sure you read Using Our Products for how this can fit in to your overall routine

You should try this with…
Use the Vitamin C+ Serum in the morning and our All Trans Retinol at night for a perfect double dose of anti-ageing treatments.

    I’ve been using c serums for many years. I did have a top five and would buy whichever one was on deal. But this has topped the lot and I’m not planning to change. Perhaps c serum in general is not for everyone and it’s important to understand how to use it. Considering the high strength of this serum it’s a formulating miracle that it’s so comfortable on my slightly sensitive skin. On me it goes through a sticky stage for a few seconds and sinks into my skin completely, just as I would expect from a quality c serum. It is the nature of the product. And of course I use a moisturiser on top. The other actives added to it makes it a powerhouse product and excellent value for money. It also lasts a long time and stays fresh. It’s a silky texture that applies like a dream, gives my skin that vitamin c glow and lovely firm smooth finish. The perfect one for me.

    I absolutely love this serum and I saw great results whilst using it -my face glowed – The only problem I had was the bottle’s dispenser as a lot of the product got wasted but Katy was kind enough to send me another one. I decided to order another one when I watched Katy’s you tube video about the serum and saw that the issue had been addressed.
    Overall this is a fantastic product and their customer service is impeccable.

    I’ve been using the product for approximately 7 days now, I’m obviously disappointed that I’ve not found positive results, let alone the miraculous results others have reported.
    TEXTURE AND SMELL: The product is sticky, it doesn’t absorb into the skin, instead it leaves a foul smelling film.

    RESULTS: I have combination skin, the dryish parts are severely partched now and I’ve broken out in cystic acne. Since using I’ve noticed pronounced wrinkles and scars that weren’t visible before. My skin has become far worse since using the product, I’ve made no changes to my routine aside from introducing this Vit C serum.

    PACKAGING: dark bottle with dropper to protect the Vit c from degradation. But no mention of expiry date, or how best to store it. Some ppl suggest the fridge, others a cupboard. It would be helpful to have this info including expiration; free radicals from degradation aren’t what anyone wants to be using on their skin.

    OVERALL: I’m very careful with my skin, it’s sensitive, preferring minimal tampering and quality products.
    This product is not a miracle in a bottle, despite the reasonable price. I’m happy to try out other products through TSYI. Just not this one.
    My search continues!

      Hello and thank you for your review. We are sorry that this serum hasn’t lived up to your expectations. It is actually one of our biggest best sellers and well loved by many.
      Firstly, if you apply just a tad too much you can find the serum is sticky, however when you find the right amount this doesn’t happen. It is not really a serum that is formulated to hydrate the skin so you do need to use something hydrating afterwards. If your skin has broken out in cystic acne I would suggest that this product really isn’t suitable for your skin for some reason. We are all unique and our skin doesn’t always behave as another persons would.
      For your information the serum has a shelf life of 1 year. The batches are shipped over from the States and are fresh, they haven’t been sat on a shelf for months on end. The formula also includes MAP and Glutathione to stabilise it further. It has undergone months and months of testing to make sure that the dropper style bottle would be suitable and not cause the product to oxidise. This serum will certainly help to fight free radical damage.
      Once again we are sorry that you’re disappointed. We would of been more than happy to have resolved this had you emailed us, and we would have let you return the serum for a refund.
      Our ethics are that of making sure our clients are 100% happy with our customer service and we wish everyone to feel happy with the service they receive from us.

    Great product that had become a must in my daily routine. A little goes a long way and is easily absorbed into the skin. My first bottle lasted 9 months using it everyday. My only negative to this and reason why I’ve only given it 4 stars isn’t the product but the bottle which i feel isn’t as well designed as the old pump top bottle so requires being a little more careful to make sure I don’t get too much out. Love the product though and the difference it’s made to my skin is noticeable.

      Thanks for your review Alison. We’re pleased to say that taking on board customer feedback a new bottle has been introduced for Vitamin C, which now has a pipette. We’re sure you will find it much better to use. TTSYI

    I LOVE this product! I have just ordered my 2nd bottle after running out & realising no other product I have used comes close to this! It does exactly what it says!

    This is another of my favorite NCN products, this serum is easily absorbed into the skin, it tightens and lifts in a gradual way, lasts a long time and is very comfortable to use. I can see my complexion looks brighter, clearer and plumper. It doesn’t seem to pull the skin in a taut way or dry it out like some others. Used with the DNA moisturizer every morning it really is a lovely combo. I would definitely repurchase.

    I have to admit, I’ve never really been in to face serums etc but after this was recommended to me by the lovely Katy, I gave it a go. I’ve not long had a baby so wanted a product that would give my skin the glow I missed. That’s exactly what’ it’s done! I’ve only been using it a short while, but already I can see & feel a big difference!

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this product! I have been using this every day now, for the last couple of months, and have noticed a real difference in the tone of my skin. The fine lines around my eyes are decreasing and even the deeper lines in my forehead are less noticeable than they were before. A definite ‘must have’ for my morning skin routine — I’ve been popping it on every day under my usual moisturiser — and something I will definitely continue to buy.

    I’ve been using this serum for a few weeks now. My skin feels more firm and looks more even and I swear that my wrinkles don’t look as bad. Whilst this is cheaper than any other Vit C serums I have used in the past, the quality of ingredients speaks volumes.
