Vitamin C Diaries #3: Updates + La Beauté Pure Giveaway! (International)

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
Here's a little update on the newest serum I've been using.

La Beauté Pure's Vitamin C serum is, like most other serums I've been trying, 98% naturally derived and 72% organic, but I also love how it is produced in an FDA-registered facility and is free of parabens, nano-particles, alcohol, formaldehyde, phthalates, triclosan, GMOs, fragrances or perfumes, or added colors. That's what I call natural beauty!

I've been using it for the past week, and I love the texture of it on my skin. There's virtually no scent (just a slightly medicine-like smell, which I guarantee comes from the tea extracts or witch hazel. It's not really noticeable and definitely fades after sinking into your skin.

I haven't seen noticeable results, but using a Vitamin C serum (not just this brand) every day for the past several weeks has slightly faded some of my acne scars, so I'm hoping to see better, more dramatic results after prolonged usage.

La Beauté Pure is a very practical brand because it offers all the same natural ingredients and money-back guarantees at a very affordable price for a bottle its size (1 fl. oz.). Although its list price is $79.99—a fair price for a Vitamin C serum—it retails for only $19.99 on Amazon, which I think is a steal!

Regardless, I'm giving away one full-size bottle of La Beauté Pure's Vitamin C serum to a lucky Books à la Mode reader!
