Beautystat Univeral C Skin Refiner: Skincare Review

Us women sometimes be taken aback by the minor symptoms of aging skin. Frequently, we don't start taking our skincare regimen more seriously until we see our first wrinkle. The skin damage has already started by then. Like me, I am not very meticulous about the skincare products I use, so I don't really check if it's for skin refinement or not. I just use it when I notice that I need to, which is not a good practice. And because I subscribe to beauty boxes, I am happy to be able to use this Beautystat Universal C Skin Refiner.

How To Use

Smooth over cleansed, dry skin in the morning and at night. We may feel a tingling sensation as the product blends into our skin. This is normal due to the high concentration of vitamin C and active ingredients - it just means it's working! If we have sensitive skin, apply every other day until our skin adjusts.

I find it amusing because through the beauty box subscription I subscribed to, I encounter many products that I am not familiar with, and this product is one of them. Honestly, I am not aware of this brand, but I am really excited to try it. One of my favorite products contains vitamin C as an ingredient because it brightens the skin and helps fade blemishes from acne scars. So when I found out that this product also has Vitamin C, I became even more excited to use it.

I can say that I really like the packaging of this product because it's very simple and looks clean. It's the kind that makes you think it's really good for clearing the skin, that it looks effective for whitening and smoothening, just based on the packaging alone. I also checked how much it is in the actual store, and I was surprised because it's expensive. It costs $85. For me, the products at that price are already expensive, so if I were to buy a product, I wouldn't get it because I can't afford it. Fortunately, it was included in my beauty box subscription, so I was able to get it at a cheaper price. That's why I really made the most out of using it because it's expensive, so I should use it properly to see if it's really effective.

When it comes to the application, I noticed that its texture is a bit dry when applied to the face. But even though it's dry, it still spreads smoothly across the entire face In the first few days, I didn't feel anything, but as I continued using it, I noticed that my face stings whenever I apply this product to my skin. There are times when I hurry to apply it because of the stinging sensation, and sometimes I even stand in front of an electric fan to avoid the discomfort. But even though that's how I feel whenever I apply this product, I still continue using it because I think it's effective when I feel that way every time I apply the product on my face.

After two weeks of use, I noticed that my face never turned red, even though it stung. I've used products before that had strong ingredients that would make my face red, but in this one, it never happened. I also noticed that my acne scars on my face are gradually fading, even though they are small. I still notice it because my face seems smoother. This product is really strong because aside from it being painful every time I apply it, I also noticed that it slightly stains white clothes. I realized this when I sweated and wiped it on my shirt – it left a stain on the shirt I was wearing, so I can tell it's really potent. But it's effective though.

For me, I would recommend this product because it's really effective. The only downside is that you have to endure the stinging sensation when you apply it, and it's quite expensive. So if you're looking for affordable products, this isn't one of them But it does work well.
