I received Silymarin CF Vitamic C serum from the Skinceutical Community to test and review. I have used it for a full week so far and can confirm that it has changed my skin in just one week. I’d always wondered why Skinceutical serums were so pricey but now I know that they’re worth every penny. I’m a regular user of vitamic C serums every single day before my regular SPF so I have tried all sorts of budget and pricey serums so far. This one however, literally gave me a glow within days and that too without any breakout or irritation. The gorgeous serum is enriched with vitamic C, Silymarin, salicylic acid and ferulic acid. This powerful combo strengthens the skin barrier yet protects the skin from free radical damage and oil oxidisation. My sensitive combi skin has not broken out at all and it looks brighter - dullness has gone and it’s given me a healthy glow from within. My skin is already looking quite even toned. I’m also very happy with the fact that even after a long day, my skin doesn’t get oily or shiny. This serum has helped massively is controlling sebum which has resulted in no acne breakouts. This is a very runny, thin serum that sinks in beautifully in the skin and works great under spf and makeup. This hasn’t caused any pilling at all. It’s fragrance free but gives you the usual rusty smell that comes with L Ascorbic acid products. It’s not unpleasant and disappears quickly. I hope you consider changing the packaging as I’m very clumsy and feel like I’ll tip the glass bottle over one day while applying and that’ll b a very costly mistake. I’m very happy with this serum and to be honest I’m converted - already looking out for Black Friday deals to stock up another bottle. I’d happily recommend this to everyone looking for a perfect vitamin C serum.
No doubt 5 stars!

I have had some trouble with my skin, an oily t-zone and blackheads with blemishes on my chin area.  Having used this serum I now see what the hype is all about, it is absolutely amazing. The consistency is a little runnier than I’m used to for a serum, however, it absorbs into my skin very quickly and does not leave it feeling sticky or oily.  I have no trouble layering moisturiser and SPF on top as well as makeup. My skin is looking better than ever, it is clear, more even-toned, it doesn’t get oily throughout the day and my skin feels firmer and plumper.  I highly recommend this, it’s worth every penny!
Well worth it!

I received the Silymarin CF, which is an antioxidant Vitamin C serum, enriched with 15% pure Vitamin C, 0.5 Ferulic Acid, 0.5% Salicylic Acid and 0.5% Silymarin, this serum is formulated for day time use and is clinically proven to reduce oil oxidation by up to 76%. suitable for oily, blemish prone skin skin it is also suitable for acne prone skin, formulated to reinforce skins natural protection from free radical damage and prevent oil oxidation that can lead to breakouts.  Use - Simply apply 4-5 drops on to you finger tips after cleansing in the morning and press int o the face, neck and decolletage. The Vitamin C will also aid in brightening the skins tone, skin will feel hydrated, fresh and oily skin will be calmed and less likey to suffer from breakouts. With is dry oil type texture its absorbs in to the skin with out leaving any greasy or oily residue, there is a slight tacky feel to areas applied but that lasts for only a few mins while it dries down, then the skin feels silky smooth and soft, I h ave menopausal skin and one day it can be dry and the next have completely changed to have a few oily patches around my nose and forehead, but i found that this product has evened out my skin, the oily areas are controlled and the dry areas are nicely hydrated. There is very little to no fragrance to this product, which is really nice as some oil control products can be quite unpleasant in their aroma. Personally I really like this little bottle of loveliness. 
Great Serum

silymarin CF serum  is in a glass bottle with a convenient pipette, thanks to which we can perfectly apply as many drops as we need.  Capacity is 15 ml.  I have combination skin, which is often oily (forehead, cheeks) and prone to acne, so this serum suits me perfectly.  I use Serum regularly in the morning, applying a few drops mainly to the facial skin where it is most problematic.  And I must admit that in my case it helps. First of all, what is important for me - it has a light formula, does not leave a sticky layer, absorbs very quickly and leaves the skin pleasantly soft.  After using it, I feel my skin is deeply moisturized and nourished.  Redness is less visible.  The skin is less oily - it is nicely mattified - and thats what i wanted . It just looks healthier.  Contains great ingredients:  - 15% pure vitamin C,  -0.5% Ferulic Acid,  -0.5% Salicylic Acid,  -0.5% Silymarin.
Love this serum

Silymarin CF Antioxidant Vitamin C Serum for daytime use is an oil-free serum formulated to improve the appearance of blemishes, fine lines, and wrinkles. This serum is enriched with 15% pure vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid), acting as an antioxidant, and contains Ferulic Acid, which is a plant-based antioxidant and salicylic acid, to exfoliate the skin and remove impurities, and Silymarin, as an optimized concentration of milk thistle, to reinforce the skin’s natural protection from free radical damage and prevent oil oxidation that can lead to blemishes. This serum is suitable for oily and blemish-prone skin because it can prevent oil oxidation, which can lead to blemishes. The serum is also suitable for acne-prone skin. Another benefit of the serum is that it fights against signs of skin aging. Taking into consideration all the benefits this serum has, I find it extremely suitable for my oily and aging skin, having a multipurpose effect and efficiency.I use this serum in the morning on clean skin, applying 4-5 drops of Silymarin CF serum to my face and neck. I love how quickly my skin absorbs the serum.  My skin feels instantly softer and hydrated, and what is most important is that it is clean, free of sebum, and free of oil, which prevents the appearance of blemishes. The appearance of my skin has also improved; my skin looks more radiant and even and less shiny, thanks to less sebum. I have had fewer and fewer outbreaks due to oily skin since I started using the Silymarin CF serum.

I received this 15ml silymarin CF serum to test as been part of the skin ceuticals community. This Vitamin C antioxidant serum is ideal if your face is oily and is Blemish prone. The serum comes with a pipette so it's easier to control how much of the product you want to use. The serum is to be used in the morning after cleansing your face. It states to use 4-5 drops of the serum on your face , neck and chest. So after fully cleansing my face i applied this serum. Although it does state to apply 4-5 drops i found 3 drops was enough for my face and neck. The serum is a very lightweight serum with the serum been a yellowish colour. It's not a greasy serum either. As i find some serums are really greasy. The serum spreads really well and it absorbs almost instantly into my skin unlike some serums take a while to absorb. The serum does have a very strong scent to it but for me it really wasn't a issue. So after using this serum for a week. Results for me I'm actually impressed. There's definitely a massive difference in my skins texture. The blemishes i did have on my skin soon faded. It even brightened my complexion up while keeping it smooth and soft to touch. While the dry areas on my skin were smoothed out. Overall I'm very impressed with this serum and definitely a massive improvement from a week. Key Notes 💖 Contains 15% pure Vitamin C 💖 Contains 0.5% Ferulic Acid 💖 Contains 0.5% Salicylic Acid 💖 Contains 0.5% Silymarin 💖 Helps prevent breakouts 💖 Proven to reduce oil oxidation by 76% 💖 6m from opening
