How happy am I to come across Painted Earth skin care and cosmetics! I am blown away by all their formulations, but the line that I am focusing on in this review is their Vitamin C Care collection. I have been looking for a cleansing gel that brightens and protects by formulating with a stable form of highly concentrated Vitamin C – and the Optimum 15% Vitamin C cleanser is just the thing I was on the hunt for.
I use it for stage 2 of my cleansing process at night (stage 1 is where I use an emulsifying cleanser to dissolve makeup, oil and grime). It left my skin feeling incredibly clean, clear, and felt like it was well-prepped for my nightly serums – speaking of which, the 18% Vitamin C serum contains a stable form of Vitamin C along with a cocktail of other seriously pro-active ingredients, and if you want something even more potent, you can go for the 20% Vitamin C with Ferulic Acid serum, which is a great solution for mature and sun-damaged skin.
I recommend using the Vitamin C cleanser, and the serums morning and night. There is also a beautiful Eye Treatment in this line, which has a cool, gel texture.
The whole line is clean and free of toxic chemicals and pore-clogging ingredients. If the other formulas are as good as the Vitamin C line, I can’t wait to try them!
