Vitamin C in skin care is a massive deal at the moment and personally I’m obsessed! The Rodial Vitamin C range recently expanded to include some brilliant new products and I have been testing the Vitamin C Glow Tonic (game-changing!), the Eye Souffle and the SPF 30 Moisturiser. It’s literally a glow fest! Also, keep reading for an exclusive 30% off discount code of ALL the Vitamin C range!
What I love about these new products is that they have really unique qualities with features and benefits that I haven’t really come across in other products I have used so far. Let me explain each of them.
Bespoke Approach to Vitamin C
I think that the most interesting element to Rodial’s collection is that they use a different form of encapsulated Vitamin C for each product for maximum benefit. They do this because, as you probably know, Vitamin C is notoriously unstable. To tackle this, each product has been developed on a bespoke level based on its individual formula. The use of encapsulated Vitamin C means that each one is a slow release formula which keeps working on the skin over a longer period. I have a special discount code for you to get 30% off of the full range, so keep reading.
Rodial Vitamin C Glow Tonic
So, as I hinted at in the beginning, this is a bit of game changer for me. I am a massive fan of acid toners for gentle exfoliation and this is a multi acid formula (with AHAs and BHAs) but it also delivers a hit of encapsulated Vitamin C and a hit of hydration.
I absolutely love this tonic because it makes skin instantly glow, and following the nights I use it, I wake up with soft, smooth, and bright skin. Also, the products I use after it sink in so beautifully so it helps to maximise their benefits too. It has been formulated for use 2-3 times a week, and I literally have to stop myself from using it every night!
If you like to use a toner, you will love this because you get all the gorgeous exfoliation from a 5% acid complex of Lactic, Glycolic and Multi Fruit Acids and Salicylic Acid. These work to decongest, retexturise, and tighten pores. Then there are the added benefits of Vitamin C to brighten, boost radiance and collagen, and tackle dark spots. And there’s also Vitamin B5 to hydrate and moisturise the skin. It’s no wonder my skin is so gorgeous after I use this. There are so many good things going on and it’s tackling so many different skin issues, especially as Vitamin C is amazing for all skin types and concerns.
Rodial Vitamin C Eye Souffle
I love this product because one of the areas I need most help with is the eye area. Often Vitamin C serums and treatment products can’t be applied to that delicate skin so I always feel it misses out on all those benefits.
This cream has been formulated with 2% Vitamin C which is the ideal concentration for the thinner skin around the eyes. It also has an Amino Acid Peptide which boosts collagen and firms the skin. It kind of whips that eye area into shape!
What I love most about this product is the texture. It is rich – which I think it essential for long lasting hydration, especially if you wear makeup – yet it sinks in beautifully with a soft, almost velvety finish. It is great under concealer. Love it! You can buy this for £52.50 rather than £75 with my discount code RODIALREE.
Vitamin C SPF 30 Moisturiser
One of the absolutely genius things about this product is the fact that, when you are using Vitamin C in your routine, it’s essential to use an SPF to ensure your skin is protected. This is a sunscreen and skincare in one, so you are ticking all the boxes.
This SPF 30 contains 1% vitamin C along with Vitamin E, Hyaluronic Acid and Blood Orange Water to protect and hydrate. There’s also a blend of butters to nourish, condition and the vitamin C this uses is Ascorbyl Glucoside, which ensure a silky smooth texture.
Now I have tried loads of sunscreens, and I mean loads, because I am basically obsessed with protecting my skin from the sun. I don’t tan – I actually have what I call ‘ginger skin’ and so I know that over-exposure to UV rays has nothing to offer me apart from wrinkles, pigmentation and worse still, risk of melanoma.
I love the texture of this SPF because, although it is reassuringly thick, it melts into the skin beautifully and the white appearance disappears effortlessly and in seconds. It’s a dream. It feels lightweight on the skin, gives a great glow, and sit perfectly under makeup. Also, Vitamin C is perfect for day time because it’s a super antioxidant so helps protect skin from environmental aggressors alongside the SPF 30.
Glowing Skin Regime
Vitamin C is such a great active for making your skin glow and it has totally been working for me.
I use the Glow Tonic every other night after cleansing and it really boosts the performance of my other products. Then I apply the Eye Souffle and the SPF Moisturiser straight after my hydrating serum daily. I can rest assured that I am protected from UV and environmental aggressors. Also, they are the perfect glowy base for makeup.
Exclusive 30% Off Discount Code
So the best part is that I have a special discount code for you to use on the entire Rodial Vitamin C range until 21st June 2019. You can get a whopping 30% off! All you need to do is use code RODIALREE when shopping the Vitamin C range. Don’t miss this chance.
