Skincare Review | OST Original Pure Vitamin C20 Serum
Lets get the party started with some fun loving vitamin C! What is a healthy paradise on your face without it, not to mention that youthful wonder vitamin K and lovely vitamin E. Boyyy, vitamin B3 and A don’t feel left out, we love you too!
Putting Vitamin C on the DJ decks tonight, he can tell you he’s been mixing tracks since daayyyy. Haha, ok what is wrong with me, lets get cracking.
Vitamin C benefits the skin how?
- It is key to the production of collagen which gives the skin its firmness and strength
- It is a antioxidant which helps reduce skin damage due to free radicals
O.S.T- a brand from Korea, have come out with this Original Pore Vitamin C-20 Serum, packed with 20% of pure vitamin C. I purchased this product online from Wishtrend.com for 24.99 USD, which was £17.26 at the exchange rate at the time of purchase. A full list of the ingredients contained in this product can be found
I was very excited to try this product out as I heard a lot of great reviews on it. It was the best selling item of Nov 2012 and April 2013 (and i’m guessing the period in-between ) in the beauty & sports category on the online Asian shopping website Qoo10. One of my good friends also expressed her joy through use of this serum and how she saw a big shrinkage in the size of her pores, you can check her review on it [here]. So you can see why I was so keen to try it out myself.
Did it live up to my expectations?
As you can see, Original Pure Vitamin C-20 Serum comes beautifully packaged in this bright orange metallic box. Great packaging is always a hot selling point for me. Hey.. I said packaging, not package! Steer your mind away :PInside the box, there is a neatly sealed pipette, which is used for easily retrieving the serum into the palm of your hand.
After cleansing my face, I use 5 drips of this serum and pat it all over my face avoiding my eye area. Initially you do get a slight stinging sensation on application, but this is nothing to worry about as I was foretold. It smells just like oranges and if you get a bit on your lips and have an accidental lick, it also tastes like tangy oranges too
Original Pure Vitamin C-20 Serum advertises that it helps:
Revitalize and Remove dead skin cells
I saw my skin brighten after using the serum, my skin definitely looks more fresh!
Whitens skin, and recovers the trouble scar
I have been using this serum most evenings for 2 months and I have seen a remarkable fade in my spot scars and these are scars that have been on my face for at least 3 years. They appear much more lighter than before which I am very pleased about, hopefully after a few more months usage of this serum, they will be faded completely!
I am finding fewer blackheads to squeeze these days, I guess this is the reason why!
You can actually feel this product firming up your skin after applying, the serum will ‘dry out’ on the surface of your skin and I get the sensation as though my skin is being drawn closer together. With a layer of moisturizer applied on top of this serum, you are good to go, or in my case, good to sleep!
I must say I am impressed! Original Pure Vitamin C-20 Serum stays true to its word, it has gained my trust right there! I am now intrigued to try out the other products that OST recommends to use in conjunction with this serum which are: [OST] The First Boosting Essence and [OST] Vitamin Sleep 9 to 5 Crema. My product buying fingers are itching!
