When I was asked to test Sonäge High Impact Vitamin C serum ($ 32 in store), I was a bit nervous. Proof of this mean I would have to give up my Dr. Dennis Gross Triple C peptide firming oil for a month. Do not misunderstand me, I am eager in my quest for new and better products that will improve my skin. But also I have some favorites that have proven to be game changers and Triple C Peptide Firming Oil is one of them. In the search for new and better products, I decided to go for it! So what I discovered?
I should preface my review to give some information about me and my skin. I am one month before my 67th birthday. I would describe my skin so thin, dry and sensitive. I was also recently diagnosed with rosacea after experiencing a breakdown of what appeared to be juvenile acne I’ve ever had as a teenager. Fortunately, medication has proven to successfully eradicate. I am satisfied with my skin at my age. My main complaint would be the loss of elasticity and dryness.
My expectation in the use of this product was that it would make my skin more luminous. I sat in my daily regimen twice daily. In the morning, I applied to damp skin after using rosewater toner Hylunia and then layered it Hylunia hyaluronic Oil Free Moisturizer Serum and ClarityRX Get Fit on it. Of course, I’m done with sunscreen: Skincare Dr. Dennis Gross Mineral Sheer sun spray. At night, I again applied it to damp skin after toner and layered with hyaluronic moisturizer and Dr. Dennis Gross ferulic and Retinol Moisturizer. From my rosacea diagnosis, also I have layered Difinsa 53 Skin Protectant Lotion as a final product before bed.
There are eight active ingredients in Sonage High Impact Vitamin C Serum. orange fruit extract is known to reduce sunburn and has a mild bleaching property, while grapefruit extract promotes hydration and has antioxidant properties that resist free radicals from sun and pollution. Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) stimulates collagen synthesis, reduces hyperpigmentation and helps with UV protection. turmeric root extract helps regulate oil production and has antioxidant properties. Glycoproteins help with cell repair and beta-carotene also helps with hyperpigmentation. Bee pollen extract is used as skin softener and for the treatment of eczema. Finally, safflower seed oil is highly moisturizing and keeps moisture.
Inactive ingredients to stabilize, thicken, preserve and increase the sense of skin conditioning product, and add a citrus fragrance. No parabens and inactive are considered quite benign, so I read.
Finally, I will give my opinion about the product. It is pale orange color and has a medium consistency. It’s in a plastic container with an airless pump that works perfectly. The serum feels silky and applied gently, sinking into my skin almost immediately. I feel that my skin has really benefited from the use of High Impact Vitamin C serum. My skin has a bright look and feel a bit tight and softer.
I have a few more days left in the container, so I would say will last about a month if used twice a day. A $ 32 per half ounce, I think it’s a good investment. I will continue to use it, but they can do it in the morning and use a different type of serum overnight.
