Jan Marini C-ESTA Serum: Did I “C” Bright Results?

How long have you known that Vitamin C is good for you?  Probably most of your life, right?  But you most likely went to college or through some other young stage of your life and temporarily threw that knowledge out the window (ahem).  Now that I’ve totally lost track of how many years it has been since my golden college years (sniff, sniff), I have reintroduced Vitamin C to my life in various ways- most recently with Jan Marini C-ESTA Serum.

Jan Marini C-ESTA Serum, Vitamin C

Whether it is drinking OJ to keep myself healthy during the winter months or taking a daily multi-vitamin, I know Vitamin C can help me stay and look healthy from the inside.  And while it’s a no-brainer that foods and juices high in Vitamin C are beneficial to your health, we often forget to apply it to our skin!

Jan Marini C-ESTA Serum: The Basics

The C-ESTA Serum is made up of Vitamin C and DMAE.  Together, these two substances create a powerful antioxidant cocktail that has the ability to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and even out skin tone.  (Sign me up!)  Don’t know what DMAE is?  It’s okay, neither did I.  But Google tells me that it can reduce the development of age pigmentation.

So what that tells me is pair DMAE with Vitamin C and get potentially bright results!

Jan Marini C-ESTA Serum: How to Use + Formula

Use this serum twice per day after you’ve cleansed/toned your skin.  Top with your favorite moisturizer or SPF.

The formula is super, super light!  As I was taking the photo below, the serum started running off, which prevented me from capturing the perfect drop.  Maybe it had stage fright?!  I think it’s actually great that the serum slid away because now you can see how light the formula is.  This serum has no idea what the word greasy means, because it absorbs instantly without leaving any residue.

As for the scent, it’s a really pleasant fragrance with notes of orange and summery flowers, but it is not overpowering at all and fades once you apply the serum.
