I was kindly sent this product to test as part of the House of Skin community. With clinically proven results this Silymarin CF antioxidant Vitamin C serum claims to reinforce your skins natural protection and prevent oil oxidation which can lead to blemishes. It’s designed for morning use when you apply 4-5 drops on a cleansed face and neck, using your fingertips. Initially I was surprised by the smell which had a ‘medicinal’ scent to it. Not really to my liking but luckily as soon as it’s applied it totally dissipates. It soaks into the skin well and is fast absorbing. Now this serum is not one that I immediately fell in love with or saw amazing overnight results with. However 7 days in and you could see undeniable results. Suddenly my skin seemed brighter, my pores seemed smaller and my skin less oily. I can be prone to hormonal spots and as yet these haven’t been prevented but I appreciate I’m only 10 days into use. Overall I am very impressed with this product and will enjoy continuing to use.

I received this product from SkinCeuticals in exchange for honest review SkinCeuticals Silymarin CF Vitamin C Serum For Oily Skin, Blemish-Prone SkinHight-potency combination antioxidant with silymarin, 15% L-Ascorbicacis,and 0.5% ferylic acid.The main benefits & help with. 👌 Acne & Problematic. 👌 Uneven Skin Tone. 👌 Target fine lines. 👌 wrinkle. My opinion: I used silymarin CF Vitamin C Serum from one week ago for a while in the morning,  Its liquid and easy to absorbed I really impressed form the first used, It was leaving my skin smooth and  brightened, and It has very nice smell I really liked it, I impressed at how light the formula is and how you only need a tiny amount like a few drops to just smoothly apply it on whole my face. I have combination skin but after uesd silymarin CF, I noticed It has controlled the excess oil on my skin. So it doesn't leave on oily feel to the skin wherever it reduces the appearance of blemishes, reinforces skin’s natural protective barrier. It restores moisture to my skin and regulates visible signs of ageing such as fine lines, age spots, and wrinkles. It's lightness, non-greasy. I made It a part of my everyday skin care regimen, especially after I noticed it brightened up my skin and also helped with the uneven skin, which is an amazing result. It works by using the root that helps a fundamental improvement of skin. My skin is loving this product 💕 👌 I agreed that it advanced professional skincare 💓 How to ues: In the morning, after cleansing, apply 4-5 drops of Silymarin CF to face, neck and chest.

Silymarin CF serum review

I have been using the Silymarin CF antioxidant vitamin C serum every morning and in just a short time I feel that there is a difference in the way my skin looks and feels. This is the highest strength vitamin C formula I have ever used, yet it didn’t cause any irritation, blemishes or reactions. I do have acne-prone skin so I was very happy to find a vitamin C that is suitable for my skin and doesn’t cause breakouts. I think my skin is less oily since using this serum and my skin feels more balanced. I have been applying four drops of serum onto my skin and gently patting it until fully absorbed. The serum has a slight tacky/sticky consistency so it grips onto my skin really well and doesn’t drip. It instantly gives my skin a healthy, glowy appearance and it layers well under my moisturiser and makeup. I will continue to use this serum and I am really excited to see how it improves the appearance of my fine lines and wrinkles over time.

With so many different types/textures of vitamin c serums, it is hard to find what really suits the skin. Having tried many different brands I have now found the Silymarin one to be perfect for my oily acne prone skin. Since testing it has helped controll the amount of oil my skin produces but also helped with lightening alot of my acne marks which has helped fade them quicker especially the really stubborn ones. If you are looking for something to help brighten the skin, give you that glow but also help with acne and the oiliness then this serum is perfect for you.

Love the product! I received the silymarin CF from skinceuticals to test and review. I have been using this product every morning for the last 14 days and must say that I am truly impressed. I thought I loved my CE Ferulic acid Serum, but it seems Silymarin CF suits my skin even better. I especially love that it has salicylic acid, now my skin is not only glowing but smoother too! Thank you Skinceuticals, truly, for introducing this product to me and expanding my understanding of how different product might suit different skin better. Ps: I already shared my other samples with my friend as I can't wait to introduce and rave about this product to everyone!
Quickly becoming my ultimate product!
