The INKEY List Vitamin C Serum

About the Product
Formulated with 30% pure L-ascorbic Acid, this serum helps skin appear brighter and target signs of aging whilst also helping to protect against free radicals and pollution.

HOW I USE IT
In the am after cleansing and toning and after using my Aurelia Glow Serum. I use this only on parts where there are blemishes.

You can also mix this with a moisturizer or if you are using a Hyaluronic Acid Serum. Since its base is demithicone its consistency is like makeup primers.

The texture is thick and feels more like a cream than a serum.

The serum itself has barely any fragrance but I experienced that it leaves a slightly metallic odour on my skin and finger tips which is an issue with many Ascorbic Acid products.

Verdict
This product certainly worked for me. 2-3 weeks later many of my blemishes have vanished for which this product might not be solely responsible but it certainly did help.

This product didn’t irritate my skin but it does to some people so I will recommend, if you ever use it start by using tiny amount only on blemished and scarred region.

The INKEY List Salicylic Acid Cleanser

About the Product
The salicylic acid cleanser to help control oil, reduce pores, blackheads, and breakouts, and soothe and protect the skin.

HOW I USE IT
I prefer using it in my night routine only when I want to thoroughly cleanse my skin. I avoid using a strong cleanser  in the mornings.

Verdict
The most important thing is that this cleanser didn’t cause any breakouts or redness. It does not have fragrance and also doesn’t lather much both of these are good things. It cleanses the skin thoroughly without drying it out.

If you are currently using a good salicylic acid cleanser or face wash then you don’t need to go out of the way to invest in this one. But if you have acne prone skin and if you are not satisfied with your cleanser then the inky list salicylic acid cleanser is something you can try.
