Skincare Must Have: Vitamin C Serum

I am a skincare product snob. I have been ever since my beautiful friend and Dior makeup artist got me hooked on Dior skincare items. I hold their skincare items in high esteem, and anytime I contemplate the purchase of a drugstore moisturizer or serum, I end up turning back to my main love.


On top of Dior, I use Skoah masks and their turbo tonik toner, which I adore and my face has honestly never looked better. But as a PSA: it’s a constant vigilance sort of thing. If I miss an evening washing my face with my Neutrogena cleanser, it’s noticeable, I break out, or my skin is oily. There is no miracle skin care item that will take care of your face for you. 

Months ago I had been reading about skincare items that are popular in Korea. One of those was a Vitamin C serum. I kept that tidbit of info in the back of my mind until the other day, one of Amazon’s flash sale items was Pura D’or Vitamin C serum.


I have a combination of oily and dry skin. Some parts of my face seem oilier than the rest, and I have always struggled with maintaining clear skin since middle school. I am prone to acne if I don’t stay vigilant with my cleanser, and it’s taken a few years of using Dior’s Diorsnow moisturizer to fade acne scars.

The first night I used the vitamin c serum, I washed with my Clairisonic brush & Neutrogena cleaner, my Skoah toner, and then applied the serum. It’s viscosity is just a little bit lighter & fluid like than the Dior serums I have used. It doesn’t require a lot either, I use a little less than half the dropper provided.

My skin felt so soft and looked so clear the next morning. There was a noticeable difference in brightness, and I could already see one of the acne scars left from a very deep blemish on my chin had started to fade.

The days I don’t use it, my face doesn’t feel quite as fresh or look as bright. I am hooked and this is now an essential part of my skincare routine in the evening.

In other news, I can’t believe it’s August already. So much to do and I’m getting married in a month!
