Ascorbic Acid is another name for Vitamin C. Vitamin C is a popular antioxidant and one of the most widely used vitamins in the world. Fine Ascorbic Acid is a bioavailable form of Vitamin C in a powder form, so it can be combined with other powdered supplements or dissolved in liquid for easy ingestion.
I've been making my own Vitamin C serum, but wasn't really satisfy with the results and since I'm too lazy to mix a new batch every week, my vic c powder was left unused.
Recently I've read about the Philosophy Turbo Booster C Powder, which is basically a Vitamin C power that you mix with your moisturizer, and since I already have a bottle of Vic C powder, I've decided to mix it with my own moisturizer.
The first thing that you need to do is to find a moisturizer that will work with the powder, I've tried mixing it with my Boots Cucumber Oil Control Light Moisturiser UVA UVB Protection SPF15 , and it didn't work, it balls up, and I had to wash it off.
I've started to mix it with my Shills Moisturizing Gel, and for this time, the vic c powder did melt and it did not ball up.
When I've first started to use my own mixture it did sting, at least for the first 3 days, but the stinging started to diminish and now, after using this for over a month I don't even feel it.
I've been using this only in the morning for about a month, and my skin is now brighther and smoother, sun spots are definetly lighter, no irriation or breakouts. I've been spending a fortune on skin care products and it just amazes me how a bottle of Vitamin C Powder can achieve exactly the same thing.
