Skincare Review: I Am Radiant Vitamin C Serum from Jeffen




Hey lovelies, I am back with another beauty review for you. This time it is another face serum Jeffen sent me to review on Fashion's Sense. Let me say that I was never one for face serums, but since I've been given the opportunity to try these wonderful treatments I am an avid supporter and promoter of face serums -- well, good ones. Let's see how Jeffen's I Am Radiant Vitamin C Serum stacks up.

How Does I Am Radiant Measure-Up to its Description?

I don't know about taking 10 years off my looks. It did leave my skin feeling firmer so that toned-look it mentions is pretty spot on. I don't have wrinkles and my fine lines are around my eyes where I do not use the serum. It actually works fast on dark spots. That is probably the vitamin C kicking some discoloration butt. I am not in the market for any cosmetic procedures so I can't testify to any money-savings in that area. Not sure how "organic" equates to protecting your skin but organic can be good for environment so I'll give Jeffen that one. The last two I'll have to take their word on that since I received the product free from Jeffen for my honest review.

The Fashion's Sense Grade for I Am Radiant: A-

This serum is unlike other serums in that it is very light. I am talking about water-like light. Therefore, you have to dispense the liquid into the palm of your hand and smooth over your face because fingertip application is not going to work. Due to its watery consistency, it is not exactly ideal as a winter skincare serum. It is too light to offer any type of barrier as you layer products during the cold weather months. I do believe it might be perfect for late spring through early fall. It is also good for those with oily skin. When I use it on the oily areas of my face, it does not increase oil production, which is good.

Final Thoughts

If you have dry skin, I recommend mixing a drop or two in with your moisturizer each day and night so it can be evenly applied to your skin. For oily or combination skin, this is a good serum to use from May through September due to its light texture. Be mindful to always wear sunscreen after using the product. Vitamin C increases photosensitivity, which means those dark spots the serum is fading are prone to further darkening if they are not protected from the sun.
