When I saw this Esthetic House Vita 3000 cream in my Memebox I wasn't terribly excited. I put it aside and didn't intend to use any time in the near future, but soon after I read a in a magazine that it's good to use some vitamin c serum or cream under your regular moisturiser to brighten and even out the skin tone. 'Hey, I've got this Vitamin C vita-capsule cream somewhere in my stash', I thought and instantly dug this cream out.
The cream comes in a very practical yet unimaginative, medicinal tube with a very narrow neck which allows precise dosage and prevents air from being sucked in. The cream itself looks a bit like an ointment, it's on a thicker and more emolient side, but absorbs very fast and doesn't feel greasy or tacky on my face, but I prefer something more lightweight and mattifying to use on my oily skin under make-up.
Some of the claims like reducing and refining the appearance of pores we're obviously meant to ignore. But fading dark spots and pigmentation are to be taken seriously. After using a sequence of a snail serum, Vita 3000 and a moisturiser as my night time routine for about two weeks I noticed a great difference in the appearance of my skin which I didn't attribute to this cream at first. But now I can confidently state that Vita3000 has had substantial influence on reduction of redness and evening out any discolouration. This is the first time I've been using a vitamin C-packed cream and it made me realise I need vitamin C in my life, be it a serum or a cream, I don't care. If other vitamin C goodies fail, I will definitely consider repurchasing Vita 3000 if I manage to find it online. It's retail price of $24 seems pretty reasonable to me, considering it's a very high quality product.
