thanks seducky i will try both.
but how much (estimate) do you think you spend on all of those ingredients? and about how long does it take you to make a batch?
i am typically a natural kinda girl.. i dont really use anything on my face that is out of a store.. like i do amla masks and exfoliate with brown sugar, honey, and vit e mix, oil cleansing method, etc.. but that philosopy one doesnt have any bad ingredients in it (that i can see).. so im on the fence about which i should try first.
i will try just plain ol asorbic acid too.. but i do want the long term benefits that all the other ingredients can bring... im starting to look old already.
Well, I tend to keep my ingredients simple for my daily usage batch. Literally ascorbic acid with rosewater. Or just a smidgen of ascorbic in the palm of my hand mixed with my nightly moisturizer.
So my KISS routine is about 12-14 bucks. And the supply lasts forever. Easily 3-4 months. Minimum.
Now the more developed products will run you more, but it will also last a long time.
I'm sorry Coco. It's hard for me to put a finger on when my supplies run out b/c they really don't run out often. Let's just say if you order the kit to make it once, you will have the tools handy to make a batch for a couple of months.
I say give the Philosophy one a whirl! I used the same stuff and I looooved it! OMG! I just remembered how much I loved that stuff. That was my intro product to Vit C.
The only reason I stopped using retail versions was because every batch is not fresh, price, and being a natural girl such as yourself.
One tip. If it looks orange your vitamin c serum is already getting a lil stale.
