As a big fan of Dr. Dennis Gross products made me tickled pink to have the opportunity to review Dr. Dennis gross Hydra-pure vitamin C Brightening Serum ($ 95). I just turned 57 months have passed, and have learned to live with some wrinkles around the eyes and forehead, but I can not tolerate extra pigmentation that even the foundation does not completely cover. In recent years, my mixed / normal skin is riddled with spots of brown sun years in the sun and some capillary redness, so I was looking for something to reduce blemishes and redness of sun brown.
DDG Hydra-Pure Vitamin C Brightening Serum arrived in a pump container prior art that avoids product degradation of air and light. It has a lot of ingredients, many of them natural, but not all of them can be acceptable to the purists reading this. literature says the website of DDG to key ingredients like 3 powerful forms of vitamin C in 18% of the total, and linoleic acid is not only essential for the reconstruction of cells, but also helps to provide vitamin C skin without causing irritation. Other feed ingredients of particular interest are black tea ferment, sodium hyaluronate, soy isoflavones, lactic acid and tetrapeptide-21. In the DDG website, this product is also touted to contain a patented formula called Hydra-Pure Chelating complex, which is said to help prevent redness, irritation and signs of aging by removing heavy metals in water and environment.
This serum is light, silky in feel, and has a silicone base. At first, I had a bit of trouble diffusion pumps 2 product freshly cleaned my skin. This may be due to the fact that my skin is getting drier as I grow older. However, that problem was solved easily by adding a small amount of moisturizing serum so that is more easily transmitted through my face and neck cream. I also found that serum allows a little warm in my palm helped to spread easier. Since it contains silicone, which was concerned about pilling, although he did not pill unless I used too. For me, 2 pumps was about the right amount to avoid pilling and cover the face and neck.
Since I am a fan of DDG original alpha-beta peels and DDG Triple C Peptide Firming oil, wanted to see if this Hydra-Pure Vitamin C Brightening Serum faded my brown spots as effectively as it did by turning the DDG 2 other products. I first used the serum vitamin C pure Hydra-cream with my Sweetsation Q’Lumiere Organic Day for the first 2 weeks. I see some of my tone brightness sallow, skin naturally, but only barely noticeable fading of my brown spots. It is noteworthy also that my pores looked smaller after using this serum, although I did not notice any additional firm response. If you only use the serum vitamin C Hydra-pure, I soon discovered that not work as well as any of the exfoliations Alpha Beta peptide firming oil or Triple C themselves.
During the last week, I toured with the two shells of alpha and beta peptide firming oil Triple C. Its use in combination with one or other of the above products DDG made brighten my skin to the point that I am once again able to run errands without applying any foundation other than a small amount of concealer under the eyes.
Honestly, I liked this serum mainly because it helped clear my skin tone when used in combination with one or other of the DDG products. However, it just was not enough in itself to me. I also realized that despite the formulation seemed to dry my skin, and my broken capillaries did not seem impressed. Since the use of this at night is recommended, I did and found that upon awakening, my skin was not as flexible as normal. Actually, it looked a little rough. Even the application of the additional moisturizer at night did not prevent the drying effect this serum had on me. However, I have to say that its use in conjunction with any of the shells of Beta Alpha DDG or firming peptide oil DDG Triple C took my skin to a new level of brightness without any pallor, and wiped the brown more spots. This certainly would be a great concentration of vitamin C for those who want help prevent sunspots or even out your skin tone, but it was not enough for me on their own.
Taking the price and lack outperformance consideration, that probably would not benefit from following this serum. Its price is $ 95 for 1 ounce of product. I’ve been using it for about 3 weeks ago, and I still have the remaining product, although I’m sure how much. While I appreciate the fact that this serum DDG Vitamin C is well protected from degradation by light and air by the packaging, the only thing I do not like not knowing when they will run out. There seems no way to know how much is left in a given time. Overall, I would rate it as a preventive measure vitamin C effective for those who have not developed years of sun damage. But again, it did not do well enough for my pigmentation problems of mature skin, and seemed a little dry. Despite my problems with it, still give a product of 3.5 to 4 stars.
