My thoughts on PURITO Pure Vitamin C serum

I am a big user of vitamin C serums. I do have some hyper pigmentation spots and sun damage due to that I didn’t use to take that good care of my skin. But I wouldn’t say that it is a huge problem for me. But I do like to treat them to get them at least looking a little less visible.

Packaging

PURITO Pure Vitamin C serum comes in a regular plastic pump bottle. I do prefer pump bottles over pipettes since I just find them easier to use.

Texture and scent

Well, it is a serum that is supposed to be clear in color. As soon as it turns yellow it has started to oxidize. It is okay to still use it, but as soon as it turns orange it is time to trow it away. There is a scent to it and this is probably due to the oxidization as well. To me it smells like rotten eggs, so you can only imaging the feeling of putting it on my face.

As a vitamin C serum it is really unstable (this is common with this type of product) but I would try searching for a more stable serum. I do find that it works well on my skin type. And by that I mean that I don’t get any reaction to it in any way.

To avoid it oxidizing you can always try keeping it in the fridge, since this is recommended. But if it comes already oxidized there is not that much you can do but at least you can slow down the process.

Always when using vitamin C, or retinol products you need to use sun protection after applying it. Your skin will be so much more sensitive to sun so just bare that in mind. I would not apply any type of brightening product if I know I am spending a day at the beach. Instead I prefer using them at night.

If you use retinoid products as well, make sure not to use them at the same time or day.

How did it work for me?

Well, since it already oxidized there weren’t that much I could do. I tried and did not see any results. But I do use a lot of brightening ingredients so that might be an issue as well. The only really good thing is that it is cheap. So if you a new to Vitamin C serums you might want to give it a try just to see how your skin reacts. But it is not a product I would continue buying since it turns bad rather quick and will not be cheap in the long run.

Vitamin C serum has a short shelf life so make sure to use it up in time.

Conclusion

PURITO Pure Vitamin C serum is not a product I recommend you spending your money on. When I got it, it had already oxidized and it started turning even more orange really fast. So if you are trying this type of product out for the first time, it might be worth it just trying it out. But if you are a regular vitamin C user, save your money and look for another serum.

I give this product 1/7
