Skinceuticals C Plus AHA Review: Does it Work?
There’s never a better time to take a closer look at your skin and revisit your skincare regimen than now, for several reasons. First, you could have been doing it wrong and a little correction can go a long way to save your skin from otherwise preventable damage that lead to skin aging. Second, there may be need to tweak your skincare routine to adjust to your skin’s current state and health, most particularly if you have aging skin.
The third reason is because you need to evaluate how skincare products have evolved, and make necessary adjustments when there’s absolutely a need to do so. Every so often, studies find certain ingredients beneficial, while some find other once-trusted ingredients unsafe. There’s always a new buzz in the market too but, sadly, very seldom do these fads deliver on their claims.
Product Description, Manufacturer’s iInformation, and Price Details
Skinceuticals C Plus AHA is unlike any other product we have come across before. While it claims to have protective function for its high levels of antioxidants in the form of Vitamin C (at 15% concentration), Skinceuticals C Plus AHA also claims to be able to perform exfoliation with its glycolic and lactic acid content (at 10% concentration).
A leave-on product that protects and exfoliates at the same time — new, isn’t it? So, how does it work?
Skinceuticals explains that the product’s L-ascorbic acid content floods skin with antioxidants that strengthens your skin’s protective outer layers, making it better able to withstand damage caused by environmental stressors and free radicals.
This product also contains powerful and yet gentle exfoliants, glycolic and lactic acids, that slough off dead skin cells and impurities, leaving your skin smoother and more supple to the touch. By eliminating this debris, newer, brighter skin is able to surface, giving you an overall complexion that is younger looking.
Yours to enjoy for $135 for every 30 ml tube, Skinceuticals C Plus AHA lets you wear and enjoy rejuvenated, reinvigorated skin. This product is recommended for all skin types, including acne-prone and sensitive skin types.
Skinceuticals C Plus AHA is primarily formulated with antioxidants in the form of Vitamin C, and hydroxy acids, in the form of glycolic acid, citric acid and lactic acid.
The full product ingredients list as follows:
aqua / water / eau, ascorbic acid, triethanolamine, glycolic acid, propylene glycol, glycerin, citric acid, lactic acid, phenoxyethanol, zinc sulfate, disodium edta, sodium hyaluronate
Apply Skinceuticals C + AHA on clean and clear skin. Work in the massage to treat and protect your face, neck, décolleté and even the back of your hands.
Pros & Cons
Skinceuticals is very mindful in keeping its product’s Vitamin C potent, for which you can rest assured that the antioxidant-rich L-ascorbic acid reaches your skin in great condition. On the other hand, the exfoliation claims can leave one skeptical.
Well, the only way to relieve doubts is to try it once and for all but, then again, $135 is such a steep price to pay to get a chance to try Skinceuticals C + AHA.
