It’s been a while since I finished my last bottle of this Drunk Elephant C-Firma Day Serum. I used Vitamin C daily for the longest time as it was recommended by so many skincare professionals.
Vitamin C is a powerful skincare ingredient. An antioxidant that works to neutralise the damaging effects of pollution, environmental stressors and free radicals. It reveals firmer, brighter, smoother and more even skin.
Obviously that sounds fantastic. I did notice my skin looking clearer and healthier when I started using this C-Firma™ Day Serum. Unfortunately the other side of Vitamin C is how quickly the formula can break down and go bad.
For this Drunk Elephant C-Firma™ Day Serum I was only around half way through the bottle when the serum changed colour and lost its effect. This was a huge problem for many reasons. Mostly it was just a huge waste, not only of the product but also of my money. This isn’t a cheap product so to lose around half of it was a lot to me.
I did repurchase this serum as I thought maybe it was a bad batch when it went off so fast however the same thing happened with the next bottle. By the time I was getting to the end of the formula it was nearly a rust colour that I was a little uncomfortable applying to my skin as I was unsure of the effects of an oxidised formula.
Overall I would like to incorporate a Vitamic C serum into my skincare routine as I did see a visible improvement in my skin however I didn’t like how quickly this Drunk Elephant formula seemed to go off, especially for how much it costs.
