Review: Triple C Lightning Liquid

Review: Triple C Lightning Liquid

Happy Memorial weekend everyone! I hope you are all enjoy a nice day out in the sun! 
Speaking of that, I hope you are all wearing sun screen and protecting yourselves from harmful UV rays. 

Now if you have acne scars, hyper-pigmentation and/or uneven skin, then look no further, I have just the right product for you! Sokoglam's highly coveted Triple C Lightning Liquid will solve all of your problems. 

What it is: 

The Triple C Lightning Liquid is an active vitamin C acid/serum that will brighten up your acne scars, uneven skin, and hyperpigmentation over time.

How it works:

Over time, it will brighten up your overall complexion and acne scars with consistent use. With 20.5% pure Vitamin C (ascorbic acid), this serum brings back radiance, promotes healthy skin, and treats and prevents pigmentation. It’s also infused with 72% black chokeberry, an ingredient that works to stabilize the Vitamin C and ensure that your skin smooths out wrinkles and is hydrated.


Aronia Melanocarpa fruit extract (Black Chokeberry), Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C), Butylene glycol, Sodium lactate, Licorice root extract, 1,2- Hexanediol, Pullulan, Sodium hyaluronate, Cassia obtusifolia seed extract, Allantoin

How to use:

If you’re new to acids or have sensitive skin, start by mixing 2-3 drops in your moisturizer and applying onto your face every night. If you see no signs of irritation after two weeks, apply 1-2 drops directly onto your skin every other night, always following with a hydrating moisturizer. Gradually work your way up to applying the serum every night. This Vitamin C serum is recommended as a night treatment. If used before sun exposure, make sure to apply sunscreen.
It is a highly concentrated serum with pure Vitamin C, so your skin may feel sensitive or tingly upon application.

This product is only exclusively on Sokoglam, making it a one of a kind serum. This bottle contains 30 ml of the serum and has a pH level of 4. It sells for $27, plus shipping, which comes out to about $34 for me. I say this is worth every penny. This acid has honestly changed my skin and my overall complexion. 

I was one of the first 100 buyers so Sokoglam gifted me a pouch with little lightning symbols on it! How cute. 

Inside the box contains: The bottle of vitamin C and an eye dropper.

The eye dropper is made out of glass and rubber, so it's very easy to use and durable.

Tips to keep your Lightning Liquid fresh:

  1. Store it in a cool place away from direct sunlight, like your fridge.

  2. For best results, use the Lightning Liquid within 2-3 months, right after you open the bottle.

  3. After the serum oxidizes (turns dark yellow), it's time to replace your Lightning Liquid.

Since it is an active acid, it does expire, making it no longer useful for your skin.

I applied it on my hand first to get the feel and texture of it and right off the bat I could feel the tingly sensation of the active vitamin C. When rubbed into my skin, it has dries instantly. There's no sticky residue or any smell. It's practically odorless. 

I have been using this serum for about 2 1/2 months now and I must say, the results definitely shows.
Here is what my face looks like after one night of using it:

Here is what my face looks like after about 2 months of use: 

These two photos were taken around the same time in the same room lighting. The first photos were taken after I did my skincare routine and mixed the the vitamin C into my moisturizer as the last step. The second photos were taken after I had showered and applied toner only. 

The difference is absolutely amazing. My skin feels and looks so much smoother and brighter. So many of my freckles have lightened up as well; this Lightning Liquid definitely delivers. This serum is also the first Vitamin C serum that I have ever purchased and there is no way I am going back. I have received so many compliments on my skin lately and I owe it all to this magic bottle of vitamin C.

Regardless of the type of skin that you have, vitamin C is recommended for all skin types!
