Product Review: Laidbare From Dusk Till Dawn Vitamin C Serum



This is another of the products that I received from Katie Vibes for the Green Beauty Swap organized by NatuRia. To see the other products that I received from the Green Beauty Swap click here.

Ingredients: Helianthus Annuus Oil, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Ribes Nigrum (Blackcurrant) Seed Oil, Rosa Canina (Rosehip) Fruit Oil, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil, Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Seed Oil, Tocopherol (Vitamin E) , Prunus Armenica (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil.

Well, the formulation of this Vitamin C Serum sounds impressive indeed. In my mind, this product is more of a facial oil than a serum. It is described as: “designed to leave skin looking and feeling truly fabulous while toning the face and restoring elasticity.” The oils included in this product are definitely known for all those qualities. They are all nourishing and full of anti-oxidants. I have used Apricot Kernel Oil, Vitamin E Oil, Rosehip Oil and Evening Primrose Oil separately and liked them. The smell of this serum is calming, light, and herbal. It also glides on effortlessly. Yet I found that this serum didn’t make a dramatic improvement in my skin tone and elasticity. What it did seem to help with was my under eye circles. When I was using this serum my under eye circles almost disappeared! I used this serum in the evening after cleansing my face and splashing some toner on my face. It hydrates my skin nicely. I also used this as a body oil after my shower. I liked this product as a body oil too. I’m all about multi-purpose products you see. It’s a light serum so I used it liberally on my body so that it would penetrate better. I may have to repurchase this product again in the future to see if it has the same effect on my under eye circles. It’s an affordable price so that’s another plus in my books.

Cost: $9.99 GBP, 30 ml / 1 oz
