Weekly Favourite | Youth to the People 15% Vitamin C + Caffeine Energy Serum Review

Welcome to another installment of our Weekly Favourite! 

This week, I'm featuring Youth to the People's 15% Vitamin C + Caffeine Energy Serum. - SRP $68 USD/ 1oz.

I've been a huge fan of Vitamin C for the skin for as long as I can remember. Unfortunately, I had gotten away from using it because I'm always trying out new skincare. I was planning on incorporating a Vitamin C serum back into my skincare routine and that's when Youth to the People's (YTTP) 15% Vitamin C + Caffeine Energy Serum landed on my desk- Talk about manifestation! I was so happy to begin using a vitamin C serum again as it a very powerful antioxidant and well known for its benefits with brightening the skin, lessening hyperpigmentation, and even building collagen in the skin.

I often hear dermatologists recommend Retin-A, sunscreen + a good moisturizer, and vitamin C for the skin. Using that as my basis for my new skincare routine, I added peptides to the mix because I'm a huge fan of them. After a bit of research, making sure that I wasn't using products that would cancel each other out, I came up with the following routine:

Cleanse, tone, YTTP Vitamin C + Caffeine Serum, sunscreen

Cleanse, tone, Retin-A, peptides, night cream

I've been following this regime for almost 3 weeks now and my skin and I are loving it!

About my skin type: Aging (over 50), combo, dehydrated, acne-prone, melasma.

BENEFITS (Taken from YTTP):
  • Ultra-stable 15% vitamin C
  • Non-irritating + great for sensitive skin

15% Vitamin C Complex: Three powerful sources of vitamin c are combined in our pro-grade formula—Ethyl Ascorbic Acid, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (THD Ascorbate), and Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate—for maximum efficacy and stability.

The serum has a beautiful slip to it, it spreads easily and my skin drinks it up. I only need 2 pumps out of the 2-4 that is recommended, which means it will last for quite a while. I apply the serum to my face and neck, as well as my eye area. YTTP's website states that it is Ophthalmologist tested so it is safe for the eye area. 

After the first use, I noticed a difference in how my skin looked, so it does have some immediate effects. My skin looked brighter, fresher, and had a healthy glow. After a few weeks, I notice my skin looking smoother, more even-toned, brighter, fresher, and younger overall. My skin also feels firmer to the touch. I also notice less puffiness around my eyes.

I am so glad that I decided to incorporate this serum into my skincare regime. I'm much happier with how my skin looks and I look forward to using it every morning. I have reactive skin and some vitamin C serums make me breakout. Luckily, I haven't had any reaction or breakouts whatsoever with this YTTP serum. I am looking forward to seeing further improvements as I continue to use this wonderful serum!
