Review: Good (Skin) Days C’s The Day Serum

Brighter skin days are within reach with this concentrated, stable vitamin C serum. Not only is it formulated with 10% pure vitamin C (ascorbic acid), but it also contains skin brightening licorice root extract and niacinamide (vitamin B3) to diminish dullness, improve tone, and minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines.

Sokoglam

I was quite excited to try Sokoglam’s unique and affordable Vitamin C, hopeful that its many powerful ingredients would help the low overall Vitamin C percentage dissolve away all my hyperpigmentation. The container and dropper are easy to use and safely keep the serum from contamination – I’ve yet to have any problems with application or maintenance! The serum is thin, light, and easily absorbs into the skin, making it a simple addition to any skincare routine. Unfortunately for me though, I did not get any results with this product, at least not in comparison to other Vitamin C serums I’ve tried.

Ingredient Pros and Cons

Ingredients: Aqua (Water, Eau), Butylene Glycol, Ascorbic Acid, Glycerin, 1,2-Hexanediol, Sodium Bicarbonate, Myrciaria Dubia Fruit Extract, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Niacinamide, MagMagnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Arbutin, Tocopheryl Acetate, Coptis Japonica Extract, Panax Ginseng Berry Extract, Crocus Sativus Flower Extract, Tuber Magnatum Extract, Hibiscus Sabdariffa Flower Extract, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Extract, Glycereth-25 PCA Isostearate, Hydroxydecyl Ubiquinone, Sodium Metabisulfite, Xanthan Gum, Ethylhexylglycerin, Adenosine, Dextrin, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Hydrogenated Lecithin

Significant Pros

  • Butylene Glycol (moisturizing)
  • Myrciaria Dubia Fruit Extract (Vitamin C, brightening)
  • Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C, brightening)
  • Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract (fights hyperpigmentation, brightening)
  • Niacinamide (fights hyperpigmentation, anti-acne, brightening)
  • Arbutin (fights hyperpigmentation)
  • Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C, brightening)
  • Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E, Moisturtizing)

Significant Cons

  • Everything’s good in my book

The Takeaway

There really is nothing to complain about with this product, it just didn’t work for me. Perhaps, after being using to a higher percentage (15%) of Vitamin C, my skin just needs a bit more oomph to reap any benefits. If you’re new to Vitamin C, this is a great serum to start with – the admirable reviews, incredible ingredients, and decent pricing being evidence of this. For me though, I’ll probably stick to my Paula’s Choice serum.
