Having declared the PS Vitamin C Energizing Jelly Cleanser one of the best facial cleansers of 2021, we felt the need to try the rest of the Vitamin C Range which Primark keeps adding to since its launch in 2019.
We tried the PS Brightening Serum, the Revitalizing Bubble Sheet Mask and the Glow Revealing Pads over the months of December and January.
Which we think is the perfect time to test any Vitamin C product as dull complexion is a pervasive winter skin issue. The dry winter air and central heating dries skin quicker and most moisturisers aren’t enough to counter the effect, leaving skin dull and lifeless. Using more water-rich products as well as Vitamin C skincare products can alleviate the problem and help skin keep its glow.
A bit about why we love the PS Vitamin C Energizing Jelly Cleanser in all its jelly and beady goodness. It’s gentle enough for daily use and scrubs aways dirt and dead skin cells without leaving skin dry; it helps it maintain a natural glow.
PS Brightening Serum
Vitamin C works best when delivered by a fast-absorbing serum as part of a daily skincare routine, and this Brightening Serum promises to do just that. Made with pink grapefruit extract and concentrated Vitamin C; it’s white in colour, watery in texture and has a faint citrusy smell. When applied it forms a thin glossy sheen that’s quickly absorbed, leaving behind dry skin perfectly prepped for a moisturiser. Used consistently it does keep skin bright with a natural glow and lightens hyperpigmentation.
PS Vitamin C Glow Revealing Pads
While the Brightening Serum works overtime to keep the skin bright and radiant, these Glow Revealing Pads do the job in real time. It’s made with concentrated Vitamin C but also Orange Fruit Water so that while dissolving dead skin cells to reveal new more radiant ones, it also refreshes and keeps skin hydrated.
These pads are perfect when you’re in a hurry to get out of the door and don’t have time for a full-on skincare routine. It’ll quickly clear the skin of debris and give you clean skin to apply makeup.
PS Vitamin C Revitalizing Bubble Sheet Mask
You’ve got to love KBeauty, it’s the gift that keeps on giving. This Bubble Sheet Mask is of course infused with Vitamin C and reacts with oxygen to create a bubbling action that gently exfoliates, lifting grime and dead skin cells away from the skin while keeping it radiant looking. The sheet starts bubbling almost immediately when applied to skin and leaves it cleaner and glowy in 15-20 mins.
Vitamin C is an important skincare ingredient that has stood the test of time for a very good reason.
When applied on the skin, it triggers collagen and elastin production; used long term, it makes skin plumper and firmer and don’t forget how it’s able to keep skin bright and radiant by fighting against dark spots, hyperpigmentation and discoloration.
Not all Vitamin C products are the same but this Primark PS Vitamin C range ticks all the boxes.
There’s a lot to like about this range. For one, it’s effective; which is what’s most important. From cleanser to sheet mask, it’s cost-effective (all under £5), and regardless of the product, will fit into any skincare routine.
