Give Your Skin A Boost With Skinkissed Vitamin C Serum


Skinkissed serum

We all know Vitamin C is essential for our wellbeing, and of course has many benefits for our skin. Applying it topically can be  effective in fighting off damaging free radicals and other pollutants which may harm the skin. I’ve been using Skinkissed Vitamin C serum for just over five weeks as I was interested to see the difference it might make to my skin.

You may have seen the hype surrounding this product, particularly as it features regularly on Instagram – which is where I first came across it. Touted as a “miracle in a bottle” I’ve seen others having really good results with it so when Skinkisssed kindly offered to send me their serum to try I thought I would put it to the test.

Skinkissed Is a British brand and have produced their coveted serum with some fabulous ingredients, including hyaluronic acid and collagen. Skinkissed claim the ingredients in their Vitamin C Serum have been used for centuries to achieve natural and healthy skin, but it is only now they have finally brought all these unique ingredients into one perfect little bottle. Promising to plump and hydrate dry and dull skin, Help the appearance of acne and blemishes, reduce wrinkles and fine lines and leave your skin soft and fresh. It’s also said to be the perfect base and primer for your makeup. 

Vitamin C products don’t often feature in my skin care routine, but that’s mainly because they aren’t a product I tend to think of. No surprise then that I’ve only tried one other Vitamin C product which was a powder formulation. I must say, I was expecting something of a zesty scent to this product but It’s odourless –  not sure if I’m disappointed by that or not to be honest. It’s a clear, water-based liquid which is absorbed readily into the skin. I’ve tried using the serum as an overnight skin treat, but for me, it works best as a makeup primer or base and this has been my main use for it.

Apply it to clean dry skin, wait a few moments while it absorbs, then I go ahead with my usual makeup routine. I Have dry skin so I was keen to see if a serum alone with give enough hydration as I usually need to use a good moisturiser under my makeup.

Being honest, I wasn’t overwhelmed by the hydration of this serum but, saying that, it does make a great canvas for makeup and I found it helps with the longevity of my base products.

In terms of peeling, I know with the use of Vitamin C topically some may experience  peeling of the skin. Personally, I haven’t noticed any problems.

The serum is simple to use and I haven’t found any issues with it being sticky as I’ve seen other reviewers mention this. The results we have with a product are always individual and will vary. If you like the idea of a Vitamin C primer for a change, I would recommend giving it a go. With so many five-star reviews, skinkissed must be doing something right. Usual RRP £39.95  Currently reduced to £20 for 20ml glass bottle with pipette.

    I love Vitamin C serums! I find they help even out my skin tone, and this one has Hyaluronic acid which I also love! They discontinued the one I usually use so I might need to check this one out.

      Oh that’s annoying for you. Yes this would be a good alternative. Worth a try. It’s on offer at the moment for £20 🙂 Available on Amazon.

    Great to know there isn’t any peeling. I get really bad peeling with vitamin c normally. Do you think it’s something you would repurchase. X

      Oh hey, glad you got the comment working! I had best results as a primer so I probably wouldn’t repurchase to be honest as I have quite a few primers to use up first. If it remains reduced to £20 I may repurchase in future. Do you think you might try it? x

    I’ve never heard of Skinkissed as a brand. But Vitamin C is something I’ve been wanting to incorporate into my skincare routine for some time now and have been eyeing up the Superfacialist Vitamin C Oil Cleanser. This one sounds nice and I’m intrigued that it can be used as a base for make up x

      The vit c Cleansing Oil sounds fab. I’ll have to have s look at that. Yes it’s a great make up base! x

    You know I’ve never thought of using Vit c as a serum, as I’ve only taken it as an actual supplement itself. This sounds lovely to use especially if it makes a good canvas for makeup. I’m surprised it’s odourless as I would expect some sort of zesty fragrance or something! Fab post lovely xxx

    • November 28, 2017 / 11:46 am

      Me too, I’ve only used a powdered version, as well as taking a supplement. I agree, would be even better if it had a zesty scent xx

    • November 28, 2017 / 11:44 am

      Thanks lovely. Yes have a look x

    I think I;d want something with vitamin C to smell zesty too! I’ve been on the look out for a serum with vitamin C in it but not found something that’s taken my fancy x

      If you find One I’d be interested to know which one. I hadn’t really looked into it before trying this one x

    I love the packaging of this little bottle and it sounds like a really nice serum, definitely surprised it was odourless! Love that it turned out to work well as a primer rather than a skincare product too, I would never have thought to have tried it that way!

    I’ve never heard of this before, but this product seems like a good one! I’m embarrassed to say, but I don’t have a skincare routine. However I do like trying out new skincare products, so I will definitely be checking this out.
