How much do you get
Can be used around eyes?
They don’t specify anything about that, so for the sake of testing I did it, and I have not experienced any issues with it
What did I like about?
First thing I like it about Control Corrective Crystal C Serum is that it comes in an opaque bottle and it has a pump. Is a stable formula I know, but vitamin C tends to hold up better in tubes and pump bottles. Proper skin care is not cheap, and i prefer to enjoy my products to the very last drop versus having my skincare actives diminished by the contact with air, light etc. A little goes a long way I only need a pump to cover my face, two if I want to apply it also on my neck and decolletage.
What I didn’t like about
I did not find anything to dislike about Crystal C Serum
My experience with it
I used Control Corrective Crystal C Serum for the past nine weeks or so, and I can say I am very pleased with it.
For me, vitamin c serums are hit or miss, either they make my skin look great, or they break me out like I’m a thirteen years old living out of chocolate and fast food. I haven’t experienced any breakouts or irritation from Crystal C Serum.
Potent yet gentle enough I found myself reaching for it all the time, even though I have a few other vitamin C in my skincare cupboard. Crystal C Serum delivers its promises, it makes my skin glowy and plump, and much to my delight I noticed a few of my lighter sun spots vanishing away which encourages me to try another bottle when this one is finished (opaque bottle there is no way to say how much I have left ).
