REVIEW l Neogen Dermalogy Real Vita C Serum

Anyone here scared to use Vitamin C due to the fear of stinging sensation? I can totally understand that as I have dark scars. I want to fade it fast but too scared of the stinging sensation from the Vitamin C. Also, of course too lazy to keep it in fridge. Going back and forth just to do skincare routine is just too much work for me. Are you with me? I found a potent Vitamin C that so convenient!



🍊 A super potent Vitamin C Serum is enriched with good ingredients that all work together to hydrate, brighten and firm the appearance of skin for healthy-looking complexion.

🍊 32g



🍊 Slightly viscous than water. Easily absorb into skin if use a good amount. If the amount a bit extra, it may feel slight tacky.



🍊 Smells like orange candy. Yummy!


How to Use

🍊 After thoroughly cleansing and toning, apply an appropriate amount of it onto the entire face. Smooth and gently pat over skin until fully absorbed. Recommend using one vitamin C product to avoid over-exfoliating.


Extra Info

🍊 No need to be kept in a fridge as it is vitamin C derivatives that is more stable than pure vitamin C. Won’t easily oxidize.

🍊 PAO 6M.



The lightweight texture makes my oily skin feels comfortable as it absorbs into skin well without tackiness. However, if I use a bit extra than usual, my skin can feel slightly tacky but will fade after fully absorb. I can use this serum day and night without worries because it didn’t sting at all as it is Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate which is a vitamin C derivative. This serum doesn’t clog my pores or give any negative reaction. Not even purging.

As for the hydrating effects, this serum doesn’t really provide a significant hydration. Use smaller amount not enough hydration, bigger amount may feel slight tackiness so I just layer this serum with other hydrating products and it is working nicely.

For the brightening effects, I don’t see a significant result by using just this serum. I pair this serum with Neogen Dermalogy Real Ferment Micro Essence and I can see more significant result. Both products complement each other well.

Overall, this serum suits those that want to avoid stinging sensation and more stable vitamin C serum. So convenient and did a good job with a consistent usage. Even beginners can use this serum as long as you don’t over-exfoliate your skin.
