Coco you can keep it simple and still reap the glow! Asorbic acid mixed in with your fav serum for a boost. 

Purp I like to use mine immediately. I've done it both ways. Honestly I love the immediate glow from the KISS method. The more labor intense method has it's perks though. It has a long term rejuvenating effect.

Claudie I'm going to check out those ingredientsGeek

You can't go wrong with either option. Coco I wouldn't discourage you from trying out the retail option per se....... But eventually grab some asorbic acid and note the results in your homemade mix vs store bought brand.

The homemade option will be superior to retail because it's far more potent by being fresher.

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.

There are other ingredients more powerful than Vitamin C, and yield faster and better results.  My two favourite ingredients are Pycnogenol and Matrixyl.



Indeed, I use Phenoxyethanol (a few drops as a preservative)... However the SKB / Sea Kelp Bioferment also has the same ^^ preservative

The SKB has a preservative already so I use the same one just a few drops...


Okay, do not use more  percentage of a preservative for the amount of your batch.  Too much preservative in a batch, is as dangerous as too little .  Keep in mind the percentage of preservative in an ingredient, is only enough to preserve the ingredient  Big smile

Hmmmm.... 

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. Shift+R improves the quality of this image. Shift+A improves the quality of all images on this page.
