Review: Yeouth Vitamin C & E Serum
Here’s my review on Yeouth Vitamin C & E Serum! This is the vitamin c serum I have in my skin care routine right now. I stopped using vitamin c products with ascorbic acid because that particular ingredient was irritating my skin (to the point of burning it, ouch!). Ascorbic acid is definitely not what my skin likes at the moment, so I had to find an alternative that’s more gentle and a lot more suitable for sensitive skin. My skin isn’t usually sensitive, but it is to acids when I’m on a more intense acne treatment. I had to eliminate a bunch of skin care products in my routine, and vitamin c serums with ascorbic acid was one of them. So this vitamin c serum utilizes magnesium ascorbyl phosphate instead. It’s known to be more gentle on the skin. It’s less harsh on the skin compared to ascorbic acid due to it being less potent, but that’s ok! That’s exactly what I’m trying to aim for…a vitamin c serum that doesn’t burn off my face when my skin is in its fragile state. I’ve used Yeouth Vitamin C & E Serum for 3ish months now. It’ll be 4 months soon enough. Here are my thoughts on this product!
Yeouth Vitamin C & E Serum comes in a 2 fl. oz. dark glass bottle. It took me nearly 4 months to finish half of the product. I used it in the morning and at night. Yay for it being a a dark bottle, but I’m not a fan of glass bottles. They’re so clunky and can break easily when dropped. When I’m low on product, it gets stuck at the bottom. It’s just something I never liked. Why not just put it in a tube? It’ll be so much easier to store and use. As always, I do make sure to place all of my actives in a dark, cool area to prevent the product from oxidizing. So let’s talk about ingredients! What are the ingredients in this serum? Looking at the ingredients of this product, it appears to be a very basic vitamin c serum. It contains magnesium ascorbyl phosphate (vitamin c), sodium hyaluronate, vitamin e, aloe leaf juice, and a few other ingredients. There’s a total of 8 ingredients. It’s very simple. That’s one of the reasons why I purchased it in the first place. I didn’t want a product with a long list of ingredients. It’s also very easy to read and understand the ingredients at first glance.
So this vitamin c serum is a gel. When applied to the skin, it feels sticky, but it doesn’t leave a sticky residue behind. Honestly, it feels like I didn’t apply anything on my skin with this serum, lol. I only use 1 pump for the whole face and neck. Just pat the product into the skin, and let it absorb into the skin. It absorbs into the skin quite easily. It leaves my skin feeling clean. There’s no stinging sensation. It doesn’t feel irritating at all and didn’t turn my face red. There’s no pilling. It sinks into the skin very quickly. Works well with other skin care products too. I didn’t have any issues with it using it twice a day. With this serum, it feels extremely gentle and soothing when applied to the skin. I think it has to do with the aloe leaf juice it contains. My skin is left feeling calm. Also, it helps to soothe inflamed acne, which leads to some good news. And that is, it didn’t clog my pores!! I’ve experienced no breakouts from it. The serum feels very lightweight on the skin, so I think it’s perfect for people with oily, acne-prone skin. That sounds good and all, but did this vitamin c serum actually live up to its claims? Did it work?
The purpose of this vitamin c serum is to help with texture, fine lines and wrinkles, and even out the skin tone while leaving the skin feeling nourished, supple, and deeply hydrated. It also claims to brighten and fade the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation. So after using it for 3-4 months, using it in the morning and at night, the only thing I noticed is how soothing this serum is on my skin but that’s it. It didn’t deeply moisturize my skin or help brighten up my complexion. It didn’t help fade dark spots or acne marks. I like the ingredients in this serum, but I haven’t noticed much in that time span. It doesn’t look like it’s doing what it’s supposed to do. I was hoping that it would at least brighten up my skin just a little bit or fade some acne marks. It would be nice if it truly did deeply hydrate my skin as it claims to do. My skin gets dehydrated sometimes. But this serum is not hydrating at all. It’s far from it. Fine lines and wrinkles? Skin texture? Nope. I didn’t see any of that. Perhaps I have to finish the whole bottle and see what happens. So far, I don’t like it that much as far as results go.

Yeouth Vitamin C & E Serum didn’t give me any results in terms of skin brightening or fading of acne marks. The main reason why I purchased it in the first place. I had some acne marks to get rid of but nothing came out of this serum after months of using it. It didn’t do much for a dull complexion either. This isn’t the serum if you’re looking for treating skin texture, fine lines and wrinkles, or hydrating the skin. When I think of it, it just felt like I was applying expensive aloe vera on my face, lol. So! I think I’m going to continue to use it since I have half of the product left. It won’t hurt to just finish the product. Who knows what might happen in the next couple of months. haha. But I’m not holding my breath. lol. Fortunately, this serum didn’t cause any breakouts. I’ll just use it up for the time being. Would I purchase it again? The answer is no. It’s not an effective vitamin c serum. On my skin that is.
