    Best Serum

    2nd time buying this serum. Vit C is typically very drying on me. I dint like clear formulas. This is milky, hydrating and feels luxurious. It’s a great prep for the Hydrascape reverse emulsion and concealer/foundation. In conjunction with hydrascape, its perfection. Skin is soft, hydrated and looks amazing even in this dry winter.

    Came back to this excellent product

    I bought this product initially some time ago and obviously really liked it, but I also am a bit of a skin care product addict, and wanted to try some other serums with vitamin C. Although some of those other ones were also great and at a comparable price point, there is something about this MAKE serum that is just hard to beat. Has other ingredients I wanted to incorporate (niacinamide), goes on nicely, and smells wonderful. I have medium brown skin and hyperpigmentation is something I'm always trying to avoid, and this is great due to the combo of ingredients. I have rarely come back to a product as I love trying new things, but this one is going to stay!

    Love, love, love.

    Ive been using this product for about a month. I really wanted a serum that had vitamin c and other powerhouse ingredients. I have been blown away by this product. I can’t believe how much softer my skin has been. It’s also simplified my morning routine— it now just consists of just this and sunscreen. I thought it would be too harsh as a everyday product bc I am a tretinoin user. But it’s been absolutely fine and actually my skins seems, somehow, less irritation prone?? I think simplifying my routine helped with that. I’ll be honest I’m bit of skincare addict so usually once I try something, even if I really like it, I’m ready to move on to something new…but I’m completely attached to this. I will continue to purchase.

    Also for those sensitive to fragrance…my skin usually can’t tolerate any form of it. But my skin has done completely fine with the clove/vanilla ingredients.
