Review: Simplified Skin & Derma E Vitamin C Serum
I’m doing two reviews in one today. It’s going to be on Vitamin C serums.
Simplified Skin Vitamin C Serum
I’m officially done with the first bottle of Simplified Skin Vitamin C Serum! I was going to give this serum a negative review, but it has not caused my skin to break out at all! The serum balances my skin out. It’s very similar to a toner but slightly better. It decreases the oils in my skin and hydrates it at the same time. But does it brighten the skin? The answer is no. This serum did not work to brighten the skin or fade acne scars. I’m on the second bottle of this serum, so we will see. I’m not feeling optimistic about it though. I think bottle #2 could be the last one I will purchase from this brand.
Some key points that I still stand by from my last review.
- Texture is runny
- Difficult to spray out of bottle
- 2-3 pumps
- Absorbs well
- Not sticky
- Good under makeup

Derma E Vitamin C Concentrated Serum
I’ve used Derma E Vitamin C Concentrated Serum for only 1 week. The serum smells really good. It’s sweet like some sort of candy or treat. It’s soft in texture like a serum is supposed to be. It glides on the skin nicely and moisturizes it. But, it made me break out in pimples after 1 week. I’m not talking about tiny little pimples. I’m talking about angry cystic acne! Puss-filled ones. They popped up out of nowhere — my upper lip, side of my face, chin, jawline, nose. Ugh! I had to stop using it ASAP!! Even though the serum did brighten my skin up, the breakouts weren’t worth it. If you have flawless skin or skin that doesn’t breakout easily, this will work for you. If you have acne, don’t use it. It’ll be your skin’s worst nightmare! Onto the next!
Simplified Skin Vitamin C Serum
I have a new skin care product that I would love to share! I’ve been using it for about 2 weeks already. I’m halfway done with the bottle! The last Vitamin C serum didn’t work out for me. I love Vitamin C serums and wanted to try something new. More about this serum below.

Review after 2 Weeks
I’ve used Simplified Skin Vitamin C Serum for 2 weeks. My first impression of this serum is that the texture is runny and liquidy. It doesn’t feel like a typical serum where it’s more gel-like. It becomes annoying and difficult to spray the serum out of the bottle. The product does come in a spray bottle.
With this product, I have to at least use 2-3 pumps. One isn’t enough for my whole face and neck/chest. Thankfully, it comes in a 2 fl oz, 60 mL bottle. I like how it absorbs into the skin like no other. It doesn’t leave any sticky residue behind. It vanishes into the skin. I like the way it makes my skin feel. I enjoy wearing it underneath my makeup and applying it in the morning + night. I look forward to it.
As for results, I haven’t seen a dramatic difference (yet). My skin does feel softer. Again, I’ve only used it for 2 weeks. Maybe I have to use it a little bit longer to see a change in my complexion. So far, this Vitamin C serum hasn’t broken me out like the other Vitamin C serum I used before. I will continue to use it. I did purchase two bottles. ? I’m really excited to see if it works or not. A review when I finish the first bottle!
