Review: NOPS Vitamin-C Oil 25

Overdue post, My apologize of the lateness of this review >.< I was planning to observe the product for 2 weeks, but it's been a month already. so as previously mentioned, I've been totally addicted to skincare product with Vitamin C in it. Lucky me when the PR representative of NOPS skincare company approached me, she let me choose two NOPS product to try. At first I wanted to try NOPS Vital Advanced Vitamin C 20, but sadly it was out of stock, so the PR representative chose this NOPS vitamin-c oil 25 for me. Thank you (●^―^●)v

My comment:
This is an oil type Vitamin C ampoule. I was skeptical about using 'oily' product on my skincare routine since my skin is a bit oily already. But however, knowing that this product is already been a HIT in Korea, I'm willing to try out this product.

As we all know, vitamin C is one of the most popular additives in skincare products today, I'm really on it ♥♥(o→ܫ←o). I've been trying this product sparingly with NOPS snail healing cream, sometimes I switched to BRTC vitalizer c 10 ampoule (cuz I have to make a vlog about the product next week, awe)- using two different vit c ampoules is not recommended though.

It is highly concentrated (25%) so it can penetrates your skin deeply, and safely! because the Vitamin C in this product is Vitamin C derivative (Ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate) which is more stable and effective even at lower concentration. The packaging itself is do 'designer', I love the cardboard design with the vertical orange things dropping down, so classy! And the transculent orange glass bottle protect the oil for sun damage (we know that UV rays is harmful for all skincare products!) and also, I love the pipet idea, it allows me to dispense just the right amount of the serum. I use 4-5 drops for entire face, and 2 drops for my neck area.

Since this product is an oil type, I always do a light facial massage each time I put this on. I ENJOYED it a lot, really. You can try google about 'facial massage', I really recommend you to do at least 3minutes facial massage every two days for anti-aging, lifting, and relaxing purposes (σ・∀・)σ

I can notice my skintone is slightly improved, not that much, but it really helps me reduce my dull skin.  However, I still get my occassional breakouts, and errh... I can't really say and I won't totally blame the product, cuz I DO get acne sometimes, and so... during my observation, I got like 3-4 'major' acne. So it doesn't help that much to get rid acne.


What I like:
-Can be used as facial massage oil
-Brighten my skintone
-Very very moisturising
-Stable Vitamin C derivative
-Organic/ECO skincare product (Sunflower seed oil, olive oil, meadowfoam seed oil)

Not so loves:
- It doesn't work as antioxidant. I knew this by doing an apple test.
- It leaves an oily cast on my skin, no wonder, this product is oil type =/ so I have a little tips for oil hater folks (me included):
Tips: wait 10-15minutes then gently dab oil blotting sheets on your face.

Highly Recommended for:
People with dry, dehydrated, and dull skin. I'm pretty sure your dry skin will love this product! and this product will help you mantain your skin healthy by giving enough moisturize. However, people with oily skin (like me) could also use the product, reducing the amount of the product on each application will do.

TIPS: Before you start using skincare product that contain vitamin C, I suggest you to search the 'truth' about vitamin C in skincare. Like there's a lot of Vitamin C products, we know them as ascorbic acid. However there are newer derivatives of Vitamin C: Ascorbyl palmitate, Tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate and Magnesium ascorbyl phosphate. Vitamin C in form of Ascorbic Acid is very unstable and get oxidized easily, and light yellow is NOT the natural color of Vitamin C serum. I'm going to make a post about SKIN BENEFITS OF VITAMIN C, hopefully next week =3
