FAQ's Vitamin C 30%

This serum has been formulated using Vitamin C in its pure form, L-ascorbic acid, for a low irritation, stable product. If you're new to Vitamin C, or have more sensitive skin, we recommend mixing with other serums, such as Hyaluronic Acid, to build up your skin's tolerance.


WHEN SHOULD I USE THIS?

Vitamin C can be used both in the AM and the PM. For maximum effectiveness as an antioxidant we suggest using in the AM, as this is when you will get the most out of the product.


CAN I USE IT AT NIGHT?

Yes you can! it is most beneficial during the day due to the antioxidant properties but you can certainly use it in the PM too if you prefer


WHAT SHOULD I KNOW WHEN USING THIS PRODUCT IN MY ROUTINE?

Always wear sunscreen during the day. Vitamin C does not increase sun sensitivity and can protect against free radicals, however it does not provide sun protection and must be combined with a sunscreen.


IS THIS SUITABLE FOR SENSITIVE SKIN?

If you are on the more sensitive side we would recommend trying our 15% Vitamin C instead as that is a gentler formula.


WHY CAN THIS NOT BE USED WITH NIACINAMIDE OR EXFOLIATING ACIDS?

This is because mixing those ingredients can lead to irriation so we recommend to alternate them. 


WHEN USING WITH OTHER PRODUCTS

AHAs (Glycolic, Lactic, Alpha Hydroxy). Both are amazing ingredients that can help with healthy looking skin, however it would be best to use Vitamin C in the AM and an AHA in the PM to avoid increased sensitivity.


CAN I USE IT ALONGSIDE RETINOL?

If using a Retinol in the evening, stick to using Vitamin C in the AM.


WHAT IS THE PH LEVEL OF THIS PRODUCT? 

There is not PH level as it doesn't contain water

Leaves my skin so soft I constantly make my husband feel how incredibly soft my face is

The Vit C is one of my top 3 faves from Inkey, the others being Succinic Acid Treatment and Hyaluronic acid.

The vitamin C product leaves my skin the smoothest and silkiest I've ever experienced. I purchased multiples of this product at once, so I never have to go without.

Thick, powdery, doesn’t go into the skin, stings

I love Inky List and their products but what happened with this one? I didn’t mind the thickness but it’s grainy and stung when I put it on. Not only that but it wouldn’t go into the skin, it has this powdery texture and leaves gray spots on my face (because it wouldn’t go into my skin). I can literally scrap the product off my face.

Hello! Thank you for your feedback. You may find that applying a Hyaluronic Acid serum before your Vitamin C serum helps to serum to absorb, spread and also minimises any irritation you may feel! Hope this helps, let us know if you would like anymore advice on application 🖤

Hello Kyria!

Thank you very much for leaving the review and we are so sorry to hear you do not enjoy our Vitamin C 30%. The consistency of this product is indeed on the thicker side. It is a very potent Vitamin C and we recommend waiting 10 minutes before and after applying it and other skincare products. We could also recommend our Vitamin C 15% + EGF as the consistency is much lighter and liquidy. Please let us know if we can help further!

Is peeling off

It’s a very thick and rich consistency which is good. I can’t wear it under make up since the make up starts to come off because the serum is peeling. When I wear it without make up it’s also peeling. I’m mixing it with hyaluronic acid.

Hello Brenda! We are sorry to hear this. Our Vitamin C 30% is a very rich serum with thicker consistency. We recommend mixing it with Hyaluronic Acid to achieve thinner consistency that will spread easier and be more hydrating without loosing its great properties 🖤

You may also want to take a look at our Vitamin C 15% + EGF which is much lighter consistency. It's delicate but still very much effective antioxidant that helps to brighten and regenerate.

Please let us know if we can help you further, we would love to!

Best wishes,
