What I like in C-FIRMA DAY SERUM
•No irritation / sensitivity
•Can be used under makeup
•Comprehensive mix of antioxidants, anti-irritants and lightweight plant oil.
•Packaging helps keep its helpful ingredients stable.
•An all-in-one treatment that is capable of replacing the whole evening skincare routine for normal to oily skin
•Small but noticeable improvement on skin radiance
•Can double up as a skin illuminator
•Contains 15% vitamin C for Skin Whitening, an amount that can get better signs of aging, discolorations and lessen inflammation in skin.
What I don’t like in C-FIRMA DAY SERUM
•Same as all other LAA products, it is fiddly to use. Wait time is needed if you want to layer other products
•Short “life after opening” (6 months)
•Difficult to estimate how much product is left in the bottle
•No effect on pigmentation
•Oily or combination skin may find the consistency too thick
•The smell can be off-putting it smelt like bacon at first, now it smells like rust to me. When I apply it to my face using my fingers, it smells like I have been lifting weights at the gym but forgot to wash my hands
My thoughts on C-FIRMA DAY SERUM
Today’s review is on my advent into the DRUNK ELEPHANT C-FIRMA DAY SERUM. Everyone and their cousin have been talking about it. So, I did want to get onto the bandwagon. Though, availability and the price point were turning up to be a huge deterrent. However, finally, I managed to get my hands on a couple of Skin Whitening products from the Drunk Elephant and I am super excited about that. I have been using this C Firma + Day serum, which in effect is a Vitamin C day serum, for about a month and a half, and I feel comfortable to share my review on this serum now.
The “life after opening” is a short 6 months. I have been using this serum one time a day for almost 6 months now with a 3-week break in between so that I could trial this Whitening and Brightening other serum accurately and I still have some left. I cannot tell how much is left because of the opaque bottle. I have bumped my usage up to two times a day now because I will have to discard the whole bottle soon anyway.
On the other hand, a few Skin Care Products from Drunk Elephant, like their Drunk Elephant B-Hydra and Marula Oil Duo, were nothing short of disappointing. That said, I feel like Drunk Elephant has made a comeback of sorts with this new Drunk Elephant C-Firma Day Serum. With a reported 15% L-ascorbic acid, and what I estimate to be about 1% vitamin E and 0.5% ferulic acid in a fast-absorbing ethoxydiglycol base, this is a product that seems at first glance to be playing off the fact that the patent expired on cult-favorite and ultra-effective, might I add vitamin C serum Skinceuticals CE Ferulic. But then, in true “Drunk Elephant at its best” fashion, the brand adds in a few Millennial-friendly favorites, such as pumpkin extract and brightening licorice extract.
