Product Review – PCA Skin C&E Strength Max
C-Strength contains a stable and effective vitamin C and E topical for skin strengthening and brightening, as well as for smoothing fine lines and wrinkles.
This powerful formula pairs 20% vitamin C with 5% vitamin E.
To be honest it felt a bit strange using PCA Skin C-Strength Max at first as I am not used to applying a vitamin C cream in the morning. I generally like to use a vitamin C serum every morning as it absorbs instantly so I can follow with my other products.
However, I was surprised to find how non-greasy it felt and how easily was it was absorbed.
There was no horrible smell, I didn’t feel any tingling or irritation when applying it either.
I may even alternate now between the C E Ferulic & the PCA vitamin C & E.
If you compare the price, it is cheaper than the SkinCeuticals C E and also that it contains 20% Vitamin C rather than 15%.
As with most vitamin C products, the results are not instantaneous: it really is more about it protecting your skin every morning from environmental, free radical damage.
I find myself surprised to say that I really liked PCA Skin C-Strength Max and will be using it again! I am not saying that it wins over C E Ferulic, but it does come very close.
