I used to use germaine de capuccini vitamin c for my face. It wrked amazingly well, but the vial was so small for the price down here.

I stopped using the philosophy one a whole ago.. It made my face puffy and stung.
I will try a diff one... Maybe the one rumi is using, or I'll just get regular ascorbic acid

Coco.. I alternate between AA and Skinn Cosmetics Vita C. I mix the Skinn Cosmetics one with Caudalie mositure surge and AA powder with distiller water. I get more of a tingle from the AA+NaPCA combo, not sure if that makes any difference or not.
 
I stop using it in the morning and switch to night applications, I apply the vit c serum and wait about 30 minutes before applying my moisturizer.
 
Anywho, I been wanting to use vit c on my whole body so I mix a small batch of ;
 
1/4 tsp of Vita C powder
3 tsp of distilled water... shake and dissolve then I mixed it with my vera c lotion in a seperate container and applied it to the body.
 
I also made a spritz ...

No foundation, just primer and a bit of contour on the cheeks.
 
Still doing the vitamin c at night, I see a major difference in my skin.

can't see pix either but I know exactly what you mean. I see it too with my skin.  I have quite a few ladies trying it just on my word of mouth recommendation; but 2 of my neighbors actually noticed the difference and started using it that evening lol.
