The ingredient in question...

So it's not exactly new information that Vitamin C can do wonders for our skin, especially when it comes to evening out skin tone and lightening dark spots - but does it really work?

Mila Simone kindly sent me their 'Azzura Essence Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid Serum' to try and I am super impressed with the results.

What is the 'Azzura Essence'?

The Azzura Essence is a powerful blend of antioxidants that work to improve the overall appearance and feel of your skin. It has a light weight, oil-free formula and is beneficial for all skin types.

It contains Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid for botanical blend of Pomegranate, Aloe, Papaya.

What does it claim to do?

  • Erase wrinkles, fine lines & blemishes

  • Plump and hydrate dry and dull skin

  • Remove acne scars

  • Make your skin brighter, smoother & tighter

  • Repair damaged skin cells & promote the development of new ones

So what what was my verdict?

Even after a few days, I noticed quite a big difference in my skin. My skin felt a lot more plump and hydrated - I have combination/oily skin so normally I don't tend to notice significant plumping benefits from skincare products. Despite being on the oilier side, I actually love products with Hyaluronic Acid as I find it can stop my skin from over-producing oil, so this serum worked really well for me.

It has a light texture, isn't too sticky, works well under make-up and sinks in fairly quick.

As for the Vitamin C element, I definitely found that it helped to even out my skin tone - a lot. I suffer from hyper-pigmentation and I'm often left with dark scars after I have a blemish. This serum really helped to lighten up a lot of the dark areas and in a matter of days which I was really surprised to see.

I've now been using it for just over two weeks between once and twice a day and I'm really enjoying it.

The serum is vegan, cruelty-free and retails at £20 for 20ml of product. I would definitely consider purchasing a second bottle with my own money once I run out.

Have you tried any Vitamin C products before?

You can purchase the serum directly from the Mila Simone website and also from Amazon.
