Claims Vs Reality: Ethicare Remedies Epishine Vitamin C Serum

Hello Everyone,

I have read amazing reviews about Vitamin C serums from various brands, everyone seems to love them so I was super duper excited to try this Vitamin C serum from Ethicare remedies. But did I fall in love with this, Ethicare Remedies Epishine Vitamin C Serum.. lets checkout!

Ethicare Epishine Vitamin C Serum Review

Epishine, also rejuvenates face & skin. High concentration of Vitamin C with Nicotinamide helps keep your skin blemishes free & Hyaluronic Acid adds to it. Regular use of epishine, gives perfect radiant skin all year long. Epishine, lotion comes in user friendly Roll-on Pack.


  • Vitamin C -15.00% (Ascorbic Acid, Ascorbyl Glocoside)
  • Nicotinamide- 6.00%
  • Sodium Hyaluronic-1.00%

Price:- Rs.1080 for 15 ml

Shelf Life:- 18 months from the Mfg date.

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.

    Whoa this sounds scary 🙁 If you serious want to try good Vit C products I’d recommend consulting a dermatologist!

    My niece got similar bad reaction with Ethicare’s product. I have used Facemed product without any issues. I actually love the way it makes my skin glow. Apart from Ethicare brand, I tried several vitamin C serums and VCX is one of them. I love the way it makes my skin so bright that I look like some foreigner :D. It is very gentle on my skin without drying and peeling. Previously, I tried Auriga, La Roche Possay (good one, but very less ascorbic acid in it), Vicrow 20% serum as well. I have had pleasant experiences with VC 15 and VCX serums (this one has very inconvenient dropper) and at this moment I am using Vicrow C serum ….it looks interesting…let me come back to you with my feedback on Vicrow serum 😀

    Vitamin C by itself is very strong for the skin & should not be applied alone. This serum has a very high concentration of Vit C.
    May be u can try mixing it with aloe vera gel & then apply to combat itching & burning.

    Hi Poonam,
    I found your post while searching for some vitamin C serums. I see it’s an old post but I figured I’ll leave a comment anyway. Epishine contains ascorbic acid which is the best form of vitamin C for the skin. But it is also effective at rather PH and can be very irritating to some. Since you find ascorbic acid to be very irritating, you can either go for a low concentration ascorbic acid product – something like 5% OR you could check out other forms of vitamin C like magnesium ascorbyl phosphate. I hope you find something that works for you!
