Garnier Vitamin C Serum Review

I received a lot of requests to review this new product of 

First of all, I like idea of putting the vit c serum in a plastic foil like this because it protects the vitamin c from oxidizing. Although, they also have one in a glass bottle dropper.

I am truly amazed by its key ingredients. They mixed Niacinamide with Vitamin C. Although there was an old study that Niacinamide can't be mixed with Vit c, there's no clear evidence proving that. The truth of the matter is mixing Vit c and Niacinamide can be beneficial for our skin.

When I first tried the product (patch test), I experienced redness and itchiness. I knew from the start that it's sensitizing because of the ingredients. I still gave it a try tho because there were some products that I tried before containing fragrances and didn't cause irritation on my skin. But yeah, this one is highly sensitizing I must say because of its other actives.

It contains parfum, lemon oil extract, benzyl salicylate (fragrance), citrus oil, and alcohols. Those are extremely sensitizing even if you don't have sensitive skin. Most specifically lemon oil and citrus oil. Oh no! 😱

I am honestly disappointed with this product and I don't recommend it.
