Philosophy Turbo Booster C Powder

I have been researching and researching about skincare lately.  If there is an ingredient I found that is said to make "miracles" happen, it would be Vitamin C.  Vitamin C also is know as l-ascorbic acid.  It is an antioxidant.  I learned that Vitamin C, when applied to the skin, has shown to slow down the rate of free-radical damage (sun damage).  It protects the skin from UV and even reverses signs of aging to the skin.  It does this by stimulating collagen, minimize fine lines, scares, and wrinkles, and even gets rid of age spots.  Amazing isn't it?!

Upon my research, I also learned that it Vitamin C goes bad quickly and is highly unstable.  Therefore I learned that it is better to purchase Vitamin C in powder form instead of buying products with Vitamin C already inside the products.  I turned to a trusted company... Philosophy. 

I purchased the Philosophy Turbo Booster C Powder, which contains 0.25 oz of 99.8% high-potency topical Vitamin C powder.  Philosophy states that it protects skin from environmental attacks, brigtens and even skin tone.  The directions say to mix 1/2-1 scoop of powder into your palm with your serum or moisturizer.

I have been using a 1/2 scoop everyday after I wash my face.  I mix it with my sunblock.  I have been using it now for about a week and noticed that the redness on my face has become less.  I also noticed that my skin does look healthier.  I think I am going to continue using this product and will report back.
