Who It's For

This will be too irritating for some.  Use the Replenix Cream CF or Power of Three antioxidants if you can't use or don't like the vitamin C antioxidants. Normal or oily skin and anyone looking for the antiaging properties of a good antioxidant.

Dr. Irwin's Product Review

Vitamin C 20%. Very high quality in that it uses L-ascorbic acid which penetrates cells well and has been proven to protect cells from UV damage to skin cell DNA, promote more even pigment, and help with fine lines.  Start with the Replenix Cream CF or the Replenix Power of Three though if you haven't used antioxidants before.

In Vitamin Cs the better quality products are serums or gels in a 10-20% concentration, contain L-ascorbic acid (not the Vitamin C esters), and are PH-ed to about 3.0. There are many expensive Vitamin Cs on the market that are not as good as this one here.  You should use this up in about 3-4 months.

How to Use

Use on cleansed skin in the morning under moisturizer and sunscreen.  It's fine to use these at night also if you are not using a retinoid then.  Using both at night is irritating for most people.

SkinTour's Philosophy:
Skincare is your best
investment
One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
