So it’s been 3 weeks using Melano CC Vitamin C Essence. What happened??
I’m still using it twice a day in the morning and at night. Sometimes I only used it in the morning. I was just testing to see if it made a difference at all (once vs twice a day). Since I had a lot of product of this essence left, I settled on using it twice a day. I didn’t have any irritation, such as dry skin, redness, or itchy skin. Everything worked out well. So this essence feels very lightweight on the skin even though it feels a little bit oily. I didn’t have any problems with the oiliness of the product. It absorbed into my skin quickly too. I wished it was at least moisturizing on the skin. It just felt like any other essence I have used. It vanishes into the skin and that’s all there is to it. I can layer it with my other skin care products, and it doesn’t roll off the skin. This essence is perfect in a sense that it blends into the skin well and works well with other formulas. Also, the packaging of the product is amazing. It protects the ingredients in this product very nicely, so I know my vitamin c hasn’t been oxidized and rendered useless.
Honestly, I can’t tell if it has done anything for my skin, but I continue to use it, lol. Here are the ingredients in this product. Let’s take a peek!
Ascorbic Acid (Active Vitamin C), Tocopherol Acetate (Vitamin E Derivative), Dipotassium Glycyrrhizinate, Isopropylmethylphenol, Vitamin C Tetraisopalmitate, Ethoxydiglycol, Alpinia Catfish Seed Extract (Alpinia White), BG, Edetate, Viscosity Modifier, Perfume.
It utilizes ascorbic acid (vitamin c) to brighten the skin. It also contains other ingredients like vitamin e, licorice, and another form of vitamin c. If you’re allergic to fragrance, this essence does contain perfume. Be aware of that.
Just by looking at the ingredients, it looks pretty good, but it’s not living up to what it’s supposed to do. I’m trying to fade some acne scars and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. It’s really hard to tell if it has done anything for the marks. It’s only been 3 weeks. Maybe I have to give it more time to do its job. One good thing about this essence (even though it feels a little bit oily) is that it hasn’t clogged my pores. I’m really shocked because I haven’t found a vitamin c product that doesn’t clog my pores yet or have some weird side effects. Read more about other vitamin c products I’ve tried right below here. This doesn’t include all vitamin c products that I’ve tried. Just some, haha.

Since Melano CC Vitamin C Essence doesn’t clog my pores, I think I’m going to keep using it. Maybe I’ll see results in a few months or so. I hope. Well, all I can do is be consistent and wait it out. I’ll make another update soon. 😊
