My hero skincare item of 2017 – Vitabrid C¹² FACE Brightening Powder

Vitabrid C¹² FACE Brightening Powder

Behind the scenes of a beauty bloggers life is the testing that we do on products. In general I use a skincare product for a month before reviewing but sometimes it takes a longer time which was the case with Vitabrid C¹² FACE Brightening Powder. I’ve been using this for 2 months and continue to do so. In that two months I’ve come to realize that this is my HERO skincare item for 2017.

Why did it take me two months to declare this as a product that has changed my skin? Partly because I’m older, partly because sunscreen wasn’t available or used when I was young, partly because I was using it incorrectly. The sunscreen issue has affected my skin and probably the skin of all people in my age group. We were either slathered with Coppertone to attract the sun or when we got older used baby oil and a foil visor to help us get more color. We just didn’t know better.

Now that I do know better and use sunscreen religiously I’m battling the effects of sunspots and skin discoloration. I talked with the company’s rep and found out that I needed to use this twice a day (I was savoring it and using it once a day) and that it would take longer to become effective on sunspots. So onward I continued and now I can praise it to you all.

I previously wrote about the Vitabrid C¹² haircare products and was eager to see if their skincare would be as great. This terrific bottle of goodness is a powder to help lighten your skin. I have two larger sunspots as well as many faded freckles. I never minded the freckles but the two sunspots do annoy me. When using Vitabrid C¹² FACE Brightening Powder I concentrated on the two spots. I applied those areas first and then used the remainder on the rest of my face.

The best part of this Face Brightening Powder is that you mix it fresh every time you use it. The active ingredient in this a Vitamin C which can deteriorate over time. But you are releasing it freshly onto your skin when you use this powder. It continues to release over the next 12 hours to result in a more luminous complexion. Your skin not only looks revitalized but it helps with the appearance of fine lines.

So easy to use! Decide if you want to mix it in with your moisturizer or a serum and pour about a dime’s size of the powder onto the palm of your hand. Mix the two together and smooth it on. That’s all it takes. There’s no added fragrance to it. If I use it with a serum then I let it set for a few minutes before the application of my moisturizer. And I don’t forget sunscreen since skin is more sensitive to the sun when you use certain ingredients.

After two months of using this once or twice a day I still have 1/3 of the bottle left. It looked so small when I got the package but it’s lasted a long time. I think that by the time I’m done with Vitabrid C¹² FACE Brightening Powder my sunspots will be lightened to the point that they won’t be noticeable. I’m excited about that.

Now though I know it will be available to me if something strikes again.

Why use this Hair Tonic Set? Well it helps to prevent further hair loss and promotes thicker hair. It suppresses aging of the scalp. Just think of your grandparents and what their scalp looked like. The products supply both moisture and nutrients to your hair while making your scalp feel clean and healthy. The Hair Tonic is a leave-in product. You don’t use it in the shower, you use it on dry hair and don’t wash it out. My method was to apply it in the early evening and let it work its magic and then in the morning wash my hair as usual. It doesn’t make hair feel greasy or weighed down.

Your hair isn’t going to grow overnight, it goes through a cycle just like your eyebrows, eyelashes, and nails so it takes time to see a difference. When I started using an eyelash growth product and an eyebrow growth one I didn’t see a difference for 6 weeks but once it started I was glad I stuck with it. I feel the same about Vitabrid C¹², time is its friend and my hair’s friend. I now need to convince my husband that this is a product for him since he’s always complaining about his male pattern baldness and its progression.
