How can you get more from our Vitamin C Serum?

Following 5 years of intensive research, L'Oréal Paris is launching a derm-grade 12% Pure Vitamin C tone-pore-line serum. The concentrated formula contains the purest and most biologically active form of Vitamin C, L-Ascorbic Acid (Pure Vitamin C), the one most used and recommended by dermatologists. Clinical tests have shown that, in 4 weeks, the serum acts on early ageing signs leaving the skin 2X brighter and 3X smoother*. After 8 weeks, the results continue to improve: -53% uneven tone, -59% pores and -55% lines**."

What are the benefits of using our Pure Vitamin C Serum?

Pure Vitamin C is a potent dermatological active with a multitude of skin benefits. As an antioxidant, its ability to neutralise free radicals helps keep the skin radiant, smooth and youthful. As a brightening active, it inhibits the synthesis of excess melanin pigments by melanocytes cells in the epidermis. This helps even your skin tone and reduce hyperpigmentation & dark spots (caused by sun damage, age & acne marks). Our serum contains derm-grade Pure Vitamin C at our highest concentration and combined with other derm-recommended actives.

At what age should you start using the Serum?

Between the age of 20 and 30, three key internal biological processes start to slow down: epidermal turnover, Collagen production & Hyaluronic Acid production. This leads to the appearance of the 1st ageing signs including fine lines, rough texture, dullness, uneven tone and dark spots. Exposure to external stressors, such as UV rays & pollution, causes oxidative stress, which accelerates this ageing process. That’s why it’s so important to start taking care of your skin from your 20’s onwards. Dermatologists recommend applying Pure Vitamin C topically to prevent and correct early ageing for brighter, smoother skin.

What type of skin can benefit from our Pure Vitamin C Serum?

Our serum has been clinically proven on all skin tones and types: it’s suitable for oily skin as it is non-comedogenic (does not clog pores) but also for dryer, dehydrated skin – as it contains Glycerin and Hyaluronic Acid. The Pure Vitamin C is at skin-optimal pH and therefore well absorbed and tolerated. This means everyone can benefit from brighter, smoother skin, less visible pores, fewer lines and a more even skin tone.
As with all new skincare products, we recommend introducing Revitalift Pure Vitamin C Serum into your routine gently, starting with a morning application every other day and working up to daily use, once or twice a day.

How do you apply the Serum?

The serum is easy to add to your daily routine. Apply 3 to 5 drops to your face, neck and décolleté on cleansed skin in the morning and evening. The serum absorbs easily and has a smooth non-sticky texture. Given the damage caused by UV rays, it’s a good idea to also apply sun protection. From December 2022, you can complete your routine with our Vitamin-C-boosted Daily Anti-UV Moisturising Fluid 50+SPF.

Does this Pure vitamin c serum work well with other ingredients?

As Pure Vitamin C is very potent, you need to layer it right.
  • IDEAL MATCH

    + Hyaluronic Acid
    excellent for hydration and fighting wrinkles
    + Vitamin E or Ferulic Acid
    great combo to fight free radicals
    + Niacinamide
    perfect for brightening (use sun protection)
  • A MORE CAREFUL MATCH

    AHA Acids such as Glycolic Acid, BHA Acids & Retinol (Vitamin A) should be layered carefully with Pure Vitamin C, as mixing them together can cause skin irritation.
    Our recommendation: use Pure Vitamin C in the morning with SPF protection and apply the acids & retinols in the evening. Plump and hydrate
N.B. Revitalift Clinical Vitamin C serum contains a carefully formulated dose of Salicylic Acid (BHA Acid) with pore refining and smoothing properties. The quantity has been balanced to ensure high tolerance and prevent skin irritation.

How potent is the Pure Vitamin C and for how long?

Our serum contains our highest concentration of pure Vitamin C. Given the notorious instability of this super vitamin, we needed to ensure that it remained potent until the very last drop. After testing out more than 200 formulas, we finally achieved a very stable molecule at a skin-tolerant pH. We optimised the manufacturing processes and packaging to keep out light and oxygen, including inert, opaque glass and anti-UV lacquering.
