Having acne-prone skin means you also have to deal with dark spots on a monthly basis. That is why using a vitamin C serum is a must. But my problem with vitamin C serums is they usually feel tacky or heavy for daytime. But I still use them anyway and keep trying other more brands until I find the one. So when Purito reached out to me if I want to review their products, one of the first things I choose is their own version of it. Is it good? Scroll down to read my Purito Pure Vitamin C Serum review.

Formulated with 10% ascorbic acid and 84% hyaluronic acid, it naturally whitens to diminish blemishes; brightens and refines skin texture and tone; boosts hydration levels and locks in moisture; minimizes the look of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars; conditions, softens, and smoothes

FAQ:Can Niacinamide and Vitamin C can be mixed together?
The short answer is yes. Contrary to some claims, it is actually a myth that Niacinamide and Vitamin C can’t be mix together because they cancel each other out. For further information, you can read this post in Paula’s Choice.
SCENT: It smells exactly like those chewable vitamin C tablets.
PACKAGING: Purito Pure Vitamin C Serum recently changed their packaging. Previously, it has a label stick to it but now it is directly printed on the pump bottle. Speaking of the bottle, one pump could really go a long way because just one pump dispenses so much serum. Lastly, I like that the box is very detailed and easy to read.
FORMULA: It has a slightly thick formula but very runny, almost like a liquid. And as expected of vitamin C, it feels a little tacky and warm on the skin. But it’s not sticky not oily, which is an interesting feeling. But the ascorbic acid scent is really strong too.
RESULT: Honestly, I’m not a fan of the formula of this serum for a daytime use. But then, I still haven’t found the vitamin C serum which formula will be comfortable for a daytime in the humid and hot country. Despite that, I love how effective this vitamin c for lightening my dark spots especially when mix with Sea Buckthorn Vital 70 Cream. My skin now looks smoother and clearer than 5 weeks ago! Because of that result, I can get over that it feels warm and a little heavy on the face. Besides, I only use this at night anyway when it’s a little colder.
PROS: It’s non-oily and non-sticky. It exfoliates and also made my skin look smoother and clearer. It is an effective dark spot lightener.
CONS: It feels a little heavy and warm. Not comfortable for daytime use especially if you live in a hot and humid country.
