Glow Recipe | Guava Vitamin C Dark Spot Treatment Serum: Review

I consider myself a pretty big Glow Recipe fan and up until a couple of months ago, I thought I had tried (and reviewed) just about every product the brand has released to date. Somehow, I missed out on the Guava Vitamin C Dark Spot Treatment Serum (C$59 for 30 ml). Released in the fall of last year, this brightening serum currently stands as one of the brand's bestsellers.

Packaged in an adorable guava-shaped glass bottle with a pink pump dispenser, the Guava Vitamin C Dark Spot Treatment Serum is a potent vitamin C serum containing five different forms of vitamin C (Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, 3-O-Ethyl Ascorbic Acid, Ascorbyl Glucoside, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, and Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate), one of which has an oil-soluble encapsulation that makes it easier to absorb. The serum is also formulated with guava fruit extract and guava seed oil rich in vitamin C and antioxidants, in addition to tranexamic acid which targets redness and dark spots.

With a yummy fruity scent and a lightweight consistency, the Guava Vitamin C Dark Spot Treatment Serum spreads easily and absorbs quickly without leaving a greasy or sticky residue. The formulation layers beautifully with other products without pilling. It instantly provides a lightweight hydration and I've noticed a brighter, more even complexion after only a few uses. At this point, I've tried so many excellent vitamin C serums that it's honestly hard to pick a favorite. But given its beautiful packaging, clean formulation, lovely scent, and reasonable price, the Guava Vitamin C Dark Spot Treatment Serum from Glow Recipe ranks high in my book! If you are new to vitamin C serums and are looking for a mid-range option, then this is definitely my recommendation!
