Skinfinite Advanced C20+ Serum

Skinfinite Advanced C20+ Serum

Size: 1.0 oz (30 ml)

Skinfinite Advanced C20+ Serum is a complexion-brightening serum that fades pigmentation for smooth, even-toned skin. It reduces sun spots, age spots and all the signs of photo-aging with a potent dose of vitamin C. In addition, L-Ascorbic acid's ability to increase collagen and elastin fibers within the skin cell matrix will reduce fine lines resulting in a smoother and more even skin tone. Our reviewers were impressed by this powerful serum, and we trust that you will be as well.

Harness the power of vitamin C with this skin-brightening treatment. This powerful nutrient helps synthesize collagen and acts as a topical antioxidants to reverse sun damage. C20+ serum boasts a combination of 20% stabilized L-Ascorbic acid, ferulic acid, phloretin and synergistic antioxidants to provide broad- spectrum protection against UVA/UVB radiation while boosting collagen production.

TIA Review by Marta:
Skinfinite doesn’t mess around when it comes to formulating. Its anti-aging products feature peptides, retinol, plant stem cells and growth factors – the hard stuff. And now, Skinfinite has rounded out the line with a high impact vitamin C serum, the Skinfinite Advanced C20+.

I approach high concentrations of vitamin C with a certain amount of trepidation on account of my sensitive skin, so while I was thrilled to see that Skinfinite has majored on a 20% dose of ascorbic acid, I was a little worried about whether I would take to it. I needn’t have. Skinfinite suggests using Advanced C20+ once or twice a week, and I was easily able to tolerate it at twice weekly, even sneaking in an extra application on my neck and décolleté.

After six weeks, I can say that Skinfinite Advanced C20+ very much augments my regimen to even out skin tone and help fade a few freckles. In fact, just this week, a makeup artist commented that my skin was unusually even for someone of my age (54).

There are pluses all around for the formula overall. However, I would give a minus to C20+ for the consistency. It is very thin and I have found that the best way to apply it is to squirt a small amount into a cupped palm, dip my finger in the liquid and then dab my face and neck (trying to pump directly to my finger tips as I would with most serums results in a messy misfire).

Anyway, back to all those pluses. Most notable is ferulic acid. The combination of ferulic acid and vitamin C is a very good idea because ferulic acid has been found to act synergistically with other antioxidants and, specifically, renders vitamins C and E more powerful. A Duke University study found it particularly good for preventing sun damage, and studies elsewhere have demonstrated that exposure to ultraviolet light actually increases the antioxidant power of ferulic acid. Skinfinite has lined it up not only with vitamin C, but also vitamin E – not unlike the more expensive (twice the price in fact) offering from Skinceuticals.

Regular readers won’t be surprised to see me pounce on astaxanthin. This is a great addition as it is a super powerful antioxidant. According to the results of a 2002 study on hairless mice, researchers concluded that astaxanthin “can significantly prevent UV-induced collagen degradation, wrinkles, lipid peroxidation, sunburn, phototoxicity and photoallergy.”

Although the ingredients list looks short and sweet, there are many other good things. Phloretin, which is found in the flesh and skin of apples, is an antioxidant that is particularly good at getting through the skin barrier. Lutein is interesting since it filters the high-energy, blue wavelengths of light from the visible-light spectrum by as much as 90%. And there’s that great antioxidant workhorse, alpha lipoic acid.

The only thing not to like is the preservative phenoxyethanol. Overall though, Skinfinite has come up with an A+ vitamin C product at a very decent price.

    I want to update my experience with Skinfinite Advanced C20+ Serum. I kept the container of this product in my skin care cabinet and decided that it was too valuable to waste. So, before applying my evening Vitamin B and CE (YBF) or Dr. Dennis Gross Vitamin C (p.m.)--I alternate...I decided to apply the Advanced C20+ to my biggest discoloration problem areas--my cheeks near my ears--where one might apply a light smattering of blush.

    Wouldn't you know it--after another two months of nightly use, just in these 'bad' areas-- NO MORE discoloration!! So, I am changing my 2 stars to 4. I still have issues with the dispenser--it 'splays as it sprays' out of the container--no matter HOW careful I am with the pump. So, I lightly give the pump one light 'plunge' into my left hand and apply with my right (dominant) hand.

    Bottom line: this thin liquid HAS made a significant change, but it took a LONG time to see the results.

    I had high hopes for Skinfinite Advanced C20+ Serum. As a comment before my quick review--I am extremely fortunate not to suffer from rosacea, skin sensitivity, product scent sensitivity, or acne (more than the extremely occasional whitehead from grime pulled up by my Clarisonic cleansing tool--used 2x/day).

    All of this being said, I am an increasingly HUGE fan of consistent Vitamin C use on my face, eyes, neck, and décolleté. I was extremely excited to try this product with it's 20% Vitamin C (the ingredients do NOT specify what/which forms of vitamin C). I'm also a DAILY user of Pomega5 healing cream (on the advice of my doctor--I use it as a moisturizer in the morning)--so I love pomegranate and respect it's wonderful qualities as a skin care ingredient. This product not only touts pomegranate seeds, ferric acid, lutein, and alpha-lipoid acid...among many other ingredients. How could I go wrong?!

    Pros: After six weeks of 4 times per week usage (again, I do not have issues with skin sensitivity), I saw a SLIGHT decrease in my few areas of facial hyper-pigmentation. I had no problems with any sensitivity issues and there was no discernible scent.

    Cons: Despite the heavy (20%) content of Vitamin C, I saw little to none "brightening" or much decrease in my hyper pigmented areas--certainly not as much as one might expect with such a high percentage of vitamin C. As Marta noted in comments about this product, it is very thin and I could only dispense it carefully into my non-dominant cupped hand. When you pump, to it's credit, it does not dispense more than whatever pressure applied to the pumping mechanism. But, the thin product DOES splay into my cupped hand and it would be impossible to spray it onto my fingers for direct application. So, after application, I always rubbed the remaining liquid from my cupped hand onto my face/neck so I would not lose any of the product.

    Since my six-week trial of Skinfinite Advanced C20+ Serum, I've tried two other brands, Dr. Dennis Gross triple C peptide firming oil--which I use every morning and at night I use Your Best Face advanced CE (has 8.7% Vitamin C--but lists each type of Vitamin C). I noticed a big change within a week of switching to this regimen of Vitamin C use. (I also use Sciote's Vitamin C for eyes and love it.) I am sure that other users of Skinfinite Advanced C20+ Serum probably have different results. But, for me...this product was a disappointment.

    Not only does this product contain a 20% concentration of vitamin C, but it also contains a host of other powerful and synergistic antioxidants, including Astaxanthin, ferulic acid, hyaluronic acid, phloretin, lycopene, lutein. Most importantly, it is packaged in an opaque pump so that the vitamin C is not exposed to air and light, which are known to degrade vitamin C.

    I am 59 years old and am concerned about both fine lines and dryness with my skin. I have used vitamin C products for many years and was comfortable using this product frequently, at three or four times a week. The serum itself is very watery. The first time I used this, I experienced a mild stinging sensation. The product left a tacky, sticky feeling on my skin, which was a drawback.

    Several weeks after I began my trial, I realized my skin felt comfortable — not dry or oily. My esthestician remarked that my skin looked toned and balanced and told me that whatever I was using to keep it up. I feel that overall this is a good, affordable vitamin C product which also contains hyaluronic acid, ferulic acid and phloretin and made my skin feel great.
