Importance of Vitamin C Serum- Vya Naturals Vit C serum Review and Giveaway

Hello Guys,

I will start by saying that at the end of this post you are going to be very happy 🙂

With Korean beauty and Natural beauty regimens taking over the world, we are now aware of so many essential things. Two years back, I had no idea what a serum really did for your skin. Now, I know that a serum is very important and provides an extra layer of moisture to your skin. There are many Vitamins that are essential to our skin like Vitamin C, E, D and K. While you can get Vitamin D and K naturally from the sun and your bones, Vit E and C need to be taken in from other sources.

I have tried quiet a few serums, essence and facial oils over the past 2 years, and today I am going to share my views on  Vya Naturals Vitamin C serum for all of you.IMG_6707.JPG

About Vya Naturals:-

The brand name VYA naturals is derived from:-

  • Vimal (pure)
  • Yajus (reverence)
  • Ayush (healthy life)

“If it’s going on my body, it better be good.” They live an preach by this moto. They make sure that they source the finest natural ingredients that are not only safe and non-toxic but also effective. Their formulations are original, created by them, and tested on people, not animals. They use therapeutic- grade essential oils, natural plant-based butters, natural clays and plant-based waxes. And they definitely DO NOT use parabens, sulfates, artificial colors, artificial dyes, mineral oils, formaldehyde, animal ingredients, artificial scents, phthalates, chemicals, fillers, mineral oils, or petroleum.IMG_6709.jpg

Vya Naturals Vitamin C Serum:-

This Vya Natural’s Vitamin C serum for face is an anti aging serum with natural ingredients that helps brighten skin tone, hydrate skin, reduce fine lines and pigmentation.

Ingredients:-

Price and Where to buy:-

Rs 1295/- for 30 ml product

Why Vitamin C serum:-

Vitamin C has many benefits like:-

  • Reduces Wrinkles and photodamage by regulating the synthesis of the structural protein collagen.
  • Improves skin hydration
  • Reduces under eye circles
  • Creates brighter, healthier skin
  • reduces skin discolorationIMG_6712.jpgIMG_6711.jpg

My Experience with the product:-

I am quite impressed with this product. The packaging of this serum is like what you would expect. It comes in a dark-colored glass bottle with a glass drop dispenser. This packaging is perfect as vitamin C gets destroyed when kept in sunlight and plastic.

Since I have entered my late 20’s I have become very conscious of my skin. My skin has started showing all the signs of aging and  honestly this is scary. Therefore I have shifted my skin care regimen around anti aging products. The thing that I like the most about this product is that it is odorless and colorless. The serum is very lightweight in consistency and not at all sticky. This water based serum can be mixed with your moisturizer, BB creams or foundations. I have been using it for more than 2 weeks now and have not noticed any side effects like breakouts.

Pros:-

  • Anti aging
  • Lightweight
  • Odorless
  • colourless
  • skin brightening and lightning
  • Paraben free
  • Sulphates free
  • Made of natural ingredients
  • Cruelty free
  • No mineral oils and petroleum
  • No chemicals

Cons:-

  • ExpensiveIMG_6701.jpg
