Freckles and Acne Scars busted with Perricone MD's Vitamin C Ester 15!

Tuesday, July 01, 2014


I have had this Vitamin C Ester cream from Perricone for a while now, but it's only now that I had the chance to finally add a new step in my skin care regimen having finished a different one. First of all, I love Perricone, aside from the brand using all-natural and powerful ingredients, I love their no-frills packaging lookin' all official and chic. Shallow Sabs strikes again. Ha!

Perricone MD Vitamin C Ester 15, PhP 5,400

This product promises to lighten my dark spots and freckles in just 7 days. And with me using for about 3 weeks now, I can definitely say that hardly of my freckles are noticeable now. I love how refreshing it smells too!

This product contains 15% of Vitamin C Ester, the highest concentration of the powerful key ingredient in a single product. This comes in a highly penetrating non-acidic form that harnesses super anti-aging powers without generating free radicals in the skin.
You apply this product generously on your skin, and these 4 tubes should last about 2 months. You can't use this product with any other product with Retinol though. So if you will be using this product, you should use it alone after you cleanse and you tone.

Although I use it on top of my existing skin care routine: I cleanse, tone, apply liquid lotion, moisturizing facial mask, apply serum, apply VITAMIN C Ester 15, massage my face with moisturizing oil and I seal everything in with a moisturizer. Yes, that is my life every night. But you won't hear me complaining!
I have no retinol products in my existing regimen so I can add this into my routine. It comes in four 10ml tubes that is surprisingly economical. I am on my third week with this product and I am still on the first tube.

It's quite compact so it's perfect for travel too!
It has a very creamy, potent consistency but can be easily applied on your face without tugging the skin. I apply it every night on my face and neck. Since this is a whitening product, I don't apply it in the morning when I can be exposed to sun. Although my exposure is very minimal and with sunblock on, I try my best to avoid going out in the sun as much as possible.
You can see on the photo above, that the product is very potent. It's very creamy! It glides on the skin, but after it is absorbed by the skin, it has a slightly sticky feel that goes away after you seal it with a moisturizer on top of it. It's not bothersome.
Here is a photo of me five weeks ago. You can see a huge acne scar on the right side of my face (the side where I sleep on) with a bunch of freckles and other marks around it.
 When I took this photo five weeks ago for this post, I wasn't able to use the product right away because I got busy with my best friend's wedding. But I can tell you this, just after 3 weeks of using this product, my skin looks brighter (not whiter!), and my scars and freckles have faded away. You can see how clear my skin is. Even the freckles on my eyelids have disappeared without me having to apply on that area!

Not only does this product correct dark spots, but it also stops future development of unwanted spots dead in its tracks.

Length of usage before review: 3 weeks

I rated the price as 2 because although it's pricey, it's a product that works, and is worth your money!
