Review: Wishtrend 21.5 Pure Vitamin C Advanced Serum

Or dreamy skin rejuvenation part two, part one being the gooey snail cream

Vitamin C serums seem to be the main competitor for retinol. Studies have shown whitening, brightening, and collagen production effects with consistent use. Bloggers are singing massive praise! When you search on google you are immediately met with this summary:

The antioxidant properties of vitamin C (ascorbic acid) and its role in collagen synthesis make vitamin C a vital molecule for skin health. Dietary and topical ascorbic acid have beneficial effects on skin cells, and some studies have shown that vitamin C may help prevent and treat ultraviolet (UV)-induced photodamage.

All good news right? Is this the new miracle step you need in your routine? Will you finally fade all of that acne scarring and fine lines?
