Packaging:- Epishine Vitamin C Serum comes in a sleek blue colored tube with a screw cap and metallic roller ball for application. The packaging is similar to the Garnier serum. I quite liked the roller ball packaging as it gives a cooling sensation on application but you know there are hygienic issues with the packaging
My Experience with Epishine Vitamin C Serum:-
Epishine Vitamin C Serum is a clear gel liquid that spreads easily but with the roller ball it takes me a little bit more effort and time to cover full face. It felt slightly sticky like a gel coating on the face but still quite comfortable.
First time when I tried this serum I felt slight itching sensation but I ignored it, thinking may be it is the way serum works. I felt itching on my face next day as well but could not pin point which product caused it or is it just the sweaty summers so I stopped using everything.
I gave it another shot after almost 2 weeks when my skin was behaving good. I rolled this serum over my face and even before I could finish I felt strong itching sensation. I kept my calm and bore the pain just to see the results on me but after 2 hours I saw my face in the mirror and was horrified to see the redness all over my face. I immediately washed it off but my facial skin was itching badly.
The serum triggered an allergic reaction to me.. 🙁 . I do not have sensitive skin and I haven’t had any allergy with any of the skin care products in the past.
Vitamin C serum is supposed to be a magic product from Fine lines, wrinkles and age spots by stimulating Collagen production. Vitamin C is proven to repair skin damaged by free radicals, protects skin from harmful sun rays. It is a complete anti – aging solution that helps with a younger looking skin but I am heartbroken that this formulation is not for me. I am not sure if it is just this serum or I am allergic to Vitamin C serums in general as I haven’t used any other yet.
