Skin Food Fresh Juice C Serum Whitening Review

Skin Food Fresh Juice C Serum Whitening is one of those hit or miss products you occasionally run across from Skin Food.

I really love some of Skin Food’s offerings but I find many of the skincare products are more a fail than a hit for me sometimes as they promise a whole lot of everything but deliver on very little of it.

Having tried the entire range of the Skin Food Fresh Juice C Collection I must say it proved disappointing to say the least.

As I mentioned above I tried the entire collection of Skin Food Fresh Juice C Collection. I used it, stuck with it, and finished all of it but I really didn’t see much change in my skin after use.

Skin Food Fresh Juice C Serum Whitening is a skin brightening essence that contains fruit complex extracts as well vitamin c and arbutin.

I typically apply this after toner prior to emulsion and moisturizer. The texture is a watery essence with a bright scent. I like the scent a lot, it’s kinda fruity and citrus-like but be careful if you’re sensitive it might be a bit much if you are.

This comes with a dropper so you can apply a few drops in the palms of your hands and press it gently onto your face. It absorbs easily, leaves some hydrating factors behind although not much, and doesn’t leave my skin tacky or sticky after use.

It comes in a clear, heavy glass bottle. The glass scares me as I’m clumsy enough to drop and shatter it on my floors, thankfully that hasn’t happened yet with any Skin Food products, phew, dodged a bullet! I think the clearer glass probably isn’t the best storage for Vitamin C to remain stable. I also question what sort of Vitamin C is used since it can’t technically be absorbed into the skin unless processed correctly. I think the arbutin might also be a small dosage as well since after constant use with the entire Fresh Juice C rage I really didn’t feel like my skin was lighter or brighter.

Overall, Fresh Juice C Serum and really, the entire range of Fresh Juice C products are a disappointment. They smell nice, have a nice weightless feel, and offer a little hydration but they don’t wow me enough to repurchase.

No likey!

Anyone try?

Do share!

I purchased this item.

    Hi Muse! You’re right in having either a hit or a miss in their skincare products. Their tomato skincare line is good. I’ve been using it for roughly 2 years on/off, and it lightened my skin considering it’s most of the time nice and sunny in my part of the world (I’m combi, though).

      def denise. skin food has some great hits but a ton of misses too :-/ the tomato line is pretty good, really should review that soon ;-D good pick!

  • Ethan

    Totally agree! Though I think the line does have really great textures! And the emulsion does really soften the skin, overall though they really do only offer a decent amount of hydration and pleasant texture. Def not repurchasing! What lines do you recommend from skin food for combo skin? Im debating on either the tomato or gold kiwi. (i like whitening)
