Empty review on @drunkelephant ’s C-Firma serum.
At first, it tingled my skin, but after using it consecutively for a few days, my skin adapted to it. So if you’re not used to strong actives, like I wasn’t, then take this product slowly.
My mini, unfortunately, was pretty oxidised upon opening it, so it was a darker orange colour and was a bit sticky, however with that in mind, there’s no harm using an oxidised Vit C product (according to the brand). It just may not be as strong as it claims to be.
I saw both instant and long term results from this. Instantly, my skin looked healthier and brighter, and over the weeks, I noticed some areas of slightly darker pigmentation evening out.
It’s packed with fruit enzymes which is really great for keeping the skin youthful and minimise build-up of dead skin. I’m not fussed with anti-ageing products yet - I’m 22 - so I wasn’t really looking for these sorts of results. But I could see a non-drying, tightening effect on my pores. -
Would I keep using this? Definitely. And I’d recommend it for anyone who feels their skin is dull and uneven, but not if you’re too sensitive. I wouldn’t mind if Drunk Elephant also made their minis with the twist tops you see in their larger sizes - this would probably prevent that oxidisation I’ve heard is pretty common in the minis. - 2 minutes ago
