TruSkin Vitamin C + E + Hyaluronic Acid Serum Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I just love it when I have a lot of skincare to share with all of you because I know how important it is to look the best that you can these days. Not that I am trying to fool anyone into thinking I am 15 or so years younger, I just want to look my best for me and for my husband. Otherwise, I really don't think I run around a lot of the time with no makeup or "stuff" as he calls it!
Okay, so I have a new serum from a company called TruSkin Naturals and it has 20% Vitamin C in this serum which is a lot unless you built your skin up on lower doses and gradually increased it like I did. I had no problems with this strength but I have been doing skin care way before anyone was even concerned about Vitamin C. This particular Vitamin C also has Vitamin E and Hyaluronic Acid in the serum to really give it a big boost in helping us ladies keep those smiling faces.
Main Features:
  • Reverse the signs of aging while nourishing and protecting your skin with the highest quality 20% Vitamin C + E + Hyaluronic Acid formulation available.
  • Enjoy a more youthful, healthier, and vibrant appearance by neutralizing free radicals & stimulating collagen to reduce those fine facial lines & wrinkles for smoother, brighter skin texture.
  • Potent & Effective, Yet Gentle - Natural & organic ingredients absorb fast without clogging pores, irritating sensitive skin, or leaving that sticky residue so many other vitamin C serums do.
  • Made right here in the USA with Natural & Organic ingredients in a Cruelty-Free, FDA Registered, GMP Certified Facility.

    I was so happy to hear that they do not use alcohol or parabens in their products so that was a relief! They use natural and organic ingredients and never test their products on animals. It was actually kind of cool to know that they us a concentrated base of vegan hyaluronic acid to make this one of the most effective Vitamin C serum's today!
    What kinds of benefits will it help with?
    * Quickly diminish fine lines and wrinkles by boosting collagen production for an instant more youthful appearance
    * Reverse the signs of aging by minimizing dark circles and fading age spots & discoloration
    * Firm your skin for a healthier, younger look by increasing its elasticity
    * Reduce hyperpigmentation for more even skin tone
    * Brighten skin by suppressing melanin synthesis
    * Protect your skin from free radicals, sun exposure, and environmental stresses by nourishing it with powerful antioxidants
    And these are the things that are most important to me, the dark circles under my eyes because I have such awful sleeping habits now. With the RA and the Fibromyalgia constantly knocking on my door, I am sleepy and tired all the time but half of the time when I try to lay down, my mind is going a mile a minute and I can't go to sleep and so I loose a lot of sleep. Of course, if that happens too many days in a row, when I do crash, I crash for about 2 days straight and you might as well not expect to see me during those times nor do I answer the phone (although most of the time I don't even hear it).
    I sure would love it if some of these ingredients would work on the joints to relieve the pain but I guess no such luck, huh? It is amazing to me that researchers can find multiple products to help with our outward appearance but no one wants to be in pain and look horrible, so I guess as long as I can cling to one, the other will have to bide it's time.
    There are a few things that this serum will not do:
    - Will Not leave a sticky, oily or greasy residue like other serums
    - Will Not cause breakouts or clog pores like other vitamin c serums
    - Will Not irritate sensitive skin or cause itching like other brands
    - Does Not contain parabens, petroleum, alcohol or other unnatural, harmful chemicals
    I have to agree with the sticky part because I have tried products that will leave your face with a sticky or heavy feel to it and it drives me absolutely insane. I wonder why some of them do and some don't? I can also tell you I have tried a few brands that made me itch or irritated my skin and that is one thing I won't tolerate. I can tolerate the sticky feeling but not when I start feeling like my face is burning. I immediately go and wash all of it off and never use the product again or give it away. I know we all have different types of skin so the product might be great for their skin but creates havoc on mine.
    I think you will be truly amazed at what a good quality Vitamin C Serum can do for you. I have known this secret for a long time and always try to keep a bottle handy because it's one of the few luxuries I do allow myself. I may not be able to afford all the fancy stuff that rich people do, but at least for my age and my health situation right now, I think I look pretty darn good and so does my husband and that is really all that counts!
    Wash and pat skin dry as usual. If you are going to use a toner, apply the toner before the serum. Apply a small amount of TruSkin Naturals Vitamin C Serum to entire face, neck and decollete (a little goes a long way). Allow to dry for 1 - 2 minutes. Can be used daily and can be used under make up. Follow with your favorite high quality moisturizer. I don't know how you feel about your routine, but I hate having a shiny face or one that looks sweaty, so I try to use as little as possible because all that extra is going to go to waste if you use too much. Start out really small until you get the right amount for you.

    Oh, and on the bottle that you get this time, there will be a coupon on the bottle that states you will get 50% on your next order, so don't throw that bottle away until you have gotten your new bottle on it's way to you!
