Geek & Gorgeous C-Glow
Geek & Gorgeous C-Glow is a super light, water-like 15% Vitamin C + extra antioxidants (Ferulic Acid & a smaller amount of Vitamin E) formula to give the skin environmental protection, boost collagen and even the skin tone.
Why We Love It
This vitamin c serum ticks all our boxes! It's a brightening superstar with a great formula at an affordable price.
Pure Vitamin C (or Ascorbic Acid) is a 3-in-1, clinically proven superstar that gives the skin environmental protection (antioxidant), boosts the skin's own collagen production and fades hyperpigmentation. This water-light formula contains 15% Vitamin C & extra antioxidants to give a healthy glow, even and firm the skin.
Recommended for everyone looking for a light-textured, pure Vitamin C + extra antioxidant formula. However, if you have sensitive, redness-prone skin, we do not recommend C-Glow due to its low pH and high pure acid content.
The disadvantage of pure Vitamin C is that it is super unstable, and hard to formulate with. This formula uses a low pH and extra antioxidants to help to stabilize Vitamin C, but even like this, C-Glow comes only with a couple of months shelf-life.
To ensure maximum freshness, Geek & Gorgeous creates C-Glow in small batches once a week (and it is refrigerated whilst at our warehouse). We also recommend you to store it in the fridge, where it keeps fresh for at least 3 months (if unopened, it keeps for a couple of months more). At room temperature, it keeps for approximately 6 weeks.
Apply a few drops to the face after cleansing, before using other serums and/or creams. Ideal to use in the AM, but can be applied in the PM as well.
HOW TO APPLY
As the C-Glow formula is water-like, we recommend that you put a drop directly onto your face and quickly pat it on with your other hand.
Serums, creams, oils and sunscreen.
Sensitive skins may find the potency and low pH of this product potentially irritating. We recommend avoiding other sensitising ingredients like retinoids, exfoliating acids and manual exfoliants when using this product.

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid – 15%)

Ferulic acid + Vitamin E

A new-generation solvent that aids the proper penetration of Vitamin C + solubilizes the high amount of Ferulic Acid into the formula.
