Ever since my beloved Remed Super C Serum was discontinued, I’ve been on the search for a new, just-as-effective, vitamin c serum. If you’re unfamiliar with the benefits of a vitamin c serum, let me summarise them for you: they improve skin texture, stimulate collagen production, reduce hyperpigmentation and make your skin feel wonderfully soft.
The Remede was a great product because (unlike many vitamin c serums) it contained a high level of stable vitamin c (25%) and didn’t cause any flaking or cause your skin to have to ‘adjust’ to the treatment. PH Advantage is very similar to the Remede. It contains 25% stabilised vitamin c and is quite a soothing formulation. It even smells and looks the same as the Remede. However, sadly, the effect is not as good as the Remede.
My skin is not as plump and healthy as when I was using Remede regularly, and as a result requires more maintenance in the form of exfoliants and masks. It’s better than not using a vitamin c serum at all, but I was expecting much more dramatic results than this. I am willing to give this product another chance though, and here’s why: I bought this towards the end of Perth’s blisteringly hot summer. Vitamin c needs to be kept as cool as possible, otherwise the vitamin c can lose its potency, so perhaps my bottle went off in the shop before I even made the purchase. With a long, extremely hot summer, and this being the last bottle on the shop shelf, I’m willing to give this one more try. I hope I’m not disappointed.
PH Advantage High Potency Effective Vitamin C Serum is available from Kit Cosmetics for AUD $120 (30mls), which is where I bought mine.
