OST Original Pure Vitamin C20 Serum


Hello dear readers, April will end soon and I would like to introduce you to my holy grail serum. This is O.S.T Original Pure Vitamin C20 Serum that I got from WISHTREND.

I've been using this for around 2 months already, that's why I dare to say that this serum is my holy grail serum! Curious why? Read below!!


So, when I first received this serum, I was not really interested since my primary concern is to shrink my huge pores. But, one day I just opened this serum and apply it to my face.

One thing to be noted was that I have this huuuuge acne. It was the inflamed whitehead and stupidly I popped it out, which made it worse. -__-

And do you know what? The morning after I notice that the whole inflamed acne was already gone! I was like, WOW.

Sorry I have no picture for legit. proof, but I am telling you the truth because I was shocked too!

Done with the intermezzo, now let's talk about the product itself!

box
The product comes with striking red color paper box. Very simple yet elegant. 

Production and Expiry Date
On the bottom, it also has its production and expiry date. 

Usage
Let's open the box!

What's inside
So inside, there are 2 items; The dark glass serum bottle and a dropper. Very old school, but I kinda like it!

Bottle and dropper
So this product came in properly sealed bottle with a separate dropper. To preserve the effectiveness of this serum, you need to refrigerate it. This is to prevent oxidation of your skincare serums, particularly those with vitamin C, in which oxidation renders the vitamin effect useless, keep them in their original boxes, and store them in the refrigerator.

Though the dark glass packaging is there to prevent the vitamin from oxidizing, still you have to keep it away from light, especially direct sun light. Just put it in the refrigerator for best. I keep it that way!

As for me it only requires at least 2-3 drops to cover my face, and I always apply it after done with cleansing and toning steps.

Dropper

The texture of this serum is very watery. The color is quite yellowish and definitely smells like orange (for me it smells like those effervescent tablet, LOL) - which I love!

soon after application
Absorbed quickly!

Soon after the application, it feels a bit sticky. But it'll be absorbs quickly and your skin will be smooth afterwards. Moreover, instead of making one's face oily after use like some products do, this serum keeps one's face smooth and velvety for a very long period of time after application. 

after a few minutes
I finally got the full ingredients list!


FULL  INGREDIENTS:

Water, Ascorbic Acid, Ethanol, Sodium Lactate, Butylene Glycol, Glucose, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Rosa Davurica Bud Extract, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Flower Extract, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oilㅡ Sodium Hyaluronate, Bis-PEG-18 Methyl Ether Dimethyl Silane, Diethoxyethyl Succinate, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer, Xanthan, PEG-180, Gluconolactone, Beta-Glucan, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Oil,Zinc PCA, Panthenol, Niacinamide, Glycerin, Tocopheryl Acetate, Lecithin, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Ubiquinone, Diisopropyl Adipate, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben

On the top ingredient list, we can see that Ascorbic Acid aka Vitamin C is the second, means that this serum has a lot of it! Unfortunately, Ethanol aka alcohol is on the third ingredient listed, so for those who has sensitive skin, especially to alcohol might want to step back or be more careful with this serum. But luckily for me, this serum has not causing me any breakout (2 months already). Instead, it heals the wounds, especially acne scars and help to reduce the inflammation of my acnes. 

So, my final verdict is that I highly recommend this serum as it does improve my complexion (my face gets really brighter and brighter day by day), acne scars (the scars, both dark spots and wound get better and faded away), and elasticity (my face get smoother and more moist).

You can get this serum at WISHTREND, here.

Until then, bye!
