All the best in Vitamin C from StriVectin, Vichy and Indeed!

StriVectin Multi-Action Super-C Retinol Brighten & Correct Vitamin C Serum
- 30ml - $79 - with a lightweight, supercharged formula that combines the brightening power of vitamin C in two potent stabilized forms plus acerola cherry extract; with the correcting power of retinol to smooth fine lines and texture for visibly renewed, glowing skin. Sensitive to retinol? Don't worry, the formula also  contains NIA-114, StriVectin's patented form of niacin to help make the retinol more tolerable and effective.
Available at Shoppers Drug Mart stores across Canada and online at beauty.shoppersdrugmart.ca and strivectin.com

Vichy LiftActiv Specialist Peptide-C Anti-Aging Ampoules
- 10 ampoules - $ 39.95 - formulated with only 10 ingredients including: 10% pure vitamin C - works on anti-aging, dark spots, glow and firmness; phyto peptides - approves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles; natural hyaluronic acid - hydrates, smooths and plumps the skin; and Vichy mineralizing thermal water - in a clean formula without fragrance, alcohol and preservatives. 
A day's worth of serum is individually packaged in individual ampoules which is good and bad:

The good: you get a precise, fresh dose of the concentrated formula in a hermetic and photoprotective pack that preserves the actives against UV, heat and oxidation and allows the formula to be created without preservatives which is a great thing for anyone with sensitive skin!

The bad: the ampoules are glass and have to be opened in a very precise way or you end up with a jagged edge or a fistful of glass - the box does give you detailed instructions on how to open them so best to do it exactly as instructed! I imagine the glass must be important for the preserving of the formula or they would have made it easy and packaged them in plastic...

Another great tip - 1 ampoule used twice a day is more product then my skin needs so I have been stretching 1 ampoule to get 3 uses out of it - the formula is good for 48 hours after opening so this has worked well for me - if you don't have a pinhead like me you might not be able to get the product to stretch as far of course...

After 2 week of twice a day use I can definitely see a difference - my skin is smooth and glowing and feels perfectly moisturized!

Available now at drugstores across Canada and online at vichy.ca.
