Review: BRTC Vitalizer C-10 Ampoule

Hello girls, I hope you are doing fine. So I've been asked several times to review my skincare favorites, and that would be this baby: BRTC Vitalizer C-10 Ampoule from BRTCSTORE, a water based Vitamin C serum/ampoule. This has always been my favorite skincare product, at least one of my all-time favs! So before going further to the review, I would like to show you the result of the apple test (also comparison with NOPS Vitamin C Oil 25)

Well, the result show us that this Vitamin C serum works nicely as anti-oxidant that combats free radicals. So I'm going to talk a bit about FREE RADICALS here. In the very simplest of terms, free radicals are various forms of free oxygen molecules that are floating in and out of your skin tissues. Yes, Oxygen is vital for your living tissues but only if the oxygen atoms are attached to red blood cells and that happens in your lungs. You see free oxygen anywhere is highly CORROSIVE.

In case of the apple, the oxygen has “destroyed outer cells” and turned them all brown.
Oxygen is also what causes steel to rust and if it can destroy steel, it surely can destroy your living skin cells.
So why not just simply take a few vitamin C pills? As it turns out, there are a few problems there and they all lead back to one thing and that is that a highly concentrated topical vitamin C serum is the far BETTER option.

P.s: It's important to have the apple test done after purchasing vitamin C serum just to make sure that your vitamin C is fresh and useable.

Ok, onto the product:

How to use:
There's a total 7 skincare steps. However, for everyday use, I suggest you to do 5-6 steps instead of 7, cuz the mask is (of course) optional. The seven steps would be:
However, since the cream is so oily, I apply it only around eye area. yeah I skip the eye cream and whitening gel for now. I think I'm gonna buy them soon.

Note: for every water based Vitamin C ampoule, it won't leave a sticky cast on your face as long as you apply it in the right way. Slather the fuild wisely (I use 3-4 drops) on your entire face, pat it until it fully absorbed deep into your skin. You may experience stickyness for awhile. Just be PATIENT and keep covering your face with your palm for 2-3minutes. The warmth will help the absorbing process and leave your skin without any sticky cast :)

My comment:
I started using this vitamin C ampoule on July, right after I read about how my blogger friend (naver) jae ah received vitamin c 10% ampoule from NS (natural shine), and her skin is snow white like and the most flawless ever that I wish mine were (´ω`人) She gotten even whiter with all the vitamin C things and I LIKE the result! So I decided to buy this ampoule (I bought it from mylovelysister at first) and then got my second bottle from BRTCSTORE. I'm still on my first bottle though^^.  It's 30ml, it will last me like for 6 months or so. The result is captivating that I considered this ampoule is a must on my skincare routine, really! HG for serum lah! ヾ(^∇^)

Texture is very watery, and it has the nicest mild fragrance ever. Though I don't really like the fragrance idea. Ok this stuff is amazing, I notice a slight difference already. Brighter complexion, and it works well diminishing fine wrinkles and dark circle, at least better than any other cream I've tried. What I like most is the cool and soothing sensation each time I put this on, since it's a must to keep the bottle in the fridge.

It fastens up recovery process of pigmentation caused by acne scars. and what I like most it gives a radiance complexion on your face. Say goodbye to your dull skin, and HELLO BRIGTHT SKIN~! Since it's waterbased, it never break me out. So yea, this serum is suitable for all skin types. Just follow with cream or gel if you have a dry skin type. If there's any cons, then it would be the fragrance and the tint. yeah it's tinted. So that's why it's extremely important to do apple test before, because I will not be able to detect if it is oxidised by visual checking. But thanks to the biopolymer process, it stabilizes the ascorbic acid (it's not vitamin C derivatives). So yea, this BRTC Vitalizer C-10 Ampoule is surely a FRESH vitamin C.

It has become a staple in my skincare routine!

Here I will show you the upclose pic of my bare face just right after I apply this serum, Yeah BARE and upclose! you can see that my face is not that flawless (ノ_<。) Ok, it's not really a nice skin. I have hypersensitive skin but this serum works nice on me. I love love LOVE it already. This is my real UNEDITED complexion. I swear I didn't edit my skin complexion and the lighting. You can see red spots here and there. Crap TT^TT

So that's all for the review. I hope this review helps you realize how important vitamin C is to our skin. and also, I highly recommend this product if you are serious about your skin. Lastly, have you girls joined my CIRCLE LENS GIVEAWAY? Please do join if you haven't, thank you~ and I'll see you soon. Have a nice day ( ・∀・)

  39. hi Rindodo,

    i am a loyal follower of yours. I made a purchase of BRTC ampoulen C-10 after been thinking for some time. Yesterday i opened the bottle and found out the color of the tinted ampoule was darker then the picture shown above. I did the apple test and as i put 1 drop of the ampoule, it appears that d apple flesh turned yellowish due to the tint. This morning i woke up and looked at the apple's flesh and it actually still the same colour. Compared to others, it did not wrinkle out, looks flawless. I bought it at Sasa. I can show the picture of the ampoule.I read some articles about oxidized vit-C is fatal to our skin. Is it really safe? I had my first ampoule this morning and a bit worry now. Need help T.T sister. thank you
