My last update on rosehip oil was 2 months ago. During that time, I stopped using the oil on my skin. Ever since I stopped using it, I couldn’t tell a difference between having it in my skin care routine or not. No difference. From this experience, I wish rosehip oil worked for me, but it didn’t. This is another one of those things where it doesn’t work for everyone. Honestly, rosehip oil didn’t do anything for my skin as I hoped. For the rest of the product, I’ll have to use it on my body. lol. Does anyone else do that? Use products that don’t work on their face on their body? haha. Well, I do. Would I recommend rosehip oil? You can try it out, but for me it just didn’t work. My skin doesn’t do well with oils anyways. Oh well.

Another vitamin c serum that I’ve been using along side The Ordinary Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2% <<< review! πŸ™‚ I’ve been meaning to do a review on this vitamin c serum! I thought I would wait until I finish the whole tube!

About Melano CC Vitamin C Essence:

Review:

I finished my first tube of Melano CC Vitamin C Essence in about 3.5ish months! I started using it after The Ordinary Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2%. I thought, why not? It has really good reviews on it! A combo of vitamin c products from The Ordinary and Melano CC Essence will do. πŸ‘πŸ» Here are my thoughts on Melano CC Vitamin C Essence!

The packaging is amazing! It’s sealed shut, so the active ingredient is protected. All you have to do is snip the tip of the spout open, and you’re set to go! No spillage. Nothing like that. Love!! When dispensing the product, give the tube a good squeeze. The product comes out in single droplets. I use about 3-5 drops. Not only for my face. I apply it to my dΓ©colletage too. It feels a bit oily (not too oily) when applied to the skin. It absorbs into the skin well. What I do is gently pat it into my skin. It doesn’t leave any oily residue behind. So I started using this product twice a day. I realized that was a waste of product. Vitamin c only needs to be applied once a day for it to be effective. I haven’t noticed miraculous changes in my skin by using it twice a day. For me, once a day is good enough for benefits. Any more than that, it’s just a waste. So I only use it in the morning, once a day.

With this product, I didn’t see results right away. It’s not a quick fix. I was/am also using another skin brighteninig product too (The Ordinary Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2%). It could’ve been a combination of the two. Who knows. All I know is that it took time for my skin to brighten up. After 3.5 months, I can see my skin evening out just by a little bit. Some acne scars lightened. They’re not gone yet. I can see a slight change in my overall complexion . I’ll take that as a good sign. If you’re using this to lighten freckles, it didn’t work for me. I wasn’t trying to lighten freckles to begin with but get rid of acne scars and give my skin a more brighter, luminous appearance. It’s just an observation that I wanted to point out. πŸ™‚ Currently, these two are my to go-to vitamin c products. Looks like it’s working. Surely but slowly. They don’t clog my pores. My skin doesn’t appear irritated or red after using them. πŸ‘πŸ» Even if I didn’t have acne scars to fade, I would still use these products. They’re good antioxidants with anti-aging benefits. They’re also affordable, and I’ve spent a good amount of money on high end vitamin c products before. I’m going to wait it out a little longer and continue to use these vitamin c products. I’ll make another update soon! So far, so good. πŸ™‚

P.S. I know I ended up using both around the same time, so it’s hard to tell which one works. My skin is working with both. I hope this review helped. β™₯
