MURAD age diffusing serum, I don't use moisturizer over it.  Reduces the appearance of pores for me.

I'm using shiseido white lucent, it really does brighten, but you really have to use it with their softener(also of the same line, white lucent). I love the effect when i wake up sa morning.

Vitamin C serums should be whitish or atleast champagne colored. If it turns yellow or brownish don't use it!. It means nagoxidize na yung vitamin C and it's no good for the skin na.


I've been experimenting on making DIY Vitamin C serum since last year. I used ultima C before since it's alkaline vitamin C and I also bought generic vitamin E. I mixed two capsules of the vitamin C + vitamin E + hyaluronic acid lotion + celeteque moisturizer and hyaluronic moisturizer. The thing is nagyeyellow na yung vitamin C powder ng ultima C so it was yellowish to start with. Ok naman so, so ang effect sakin and bonus moisturizer yung vitamin E since it's in oil form. I only use this at night kasi ang lagkit nya for day use. It lasted for 2 weeks. oxidized quickly.

Bought another generic alkaline vitamin C called Alka C 500. It's in a black capsule and the contents were white! Perfect condition and di pa nagooxidize yung vitamin C! Then I also bought a generic vitamin E in green capsule Eviriose 400 with 400 IU. Both are very affordable! I also tried taking them orally. They're both good finds! I pour them first in a clear shot glass then mix them with hyaluronic acid again with less moisturizer. All in all lesser finished product kasi I want the vitamin C to be a bit concentrated. I pour the contents in a scented oil essence bottle with a glass dropper and dark bottle. This lasts more than a week. I always keep this in the fridge. It started oxidizing after a week.

I finally found a liquid glycerin recently! I saw the liquid glycerin + water + vitamin C recipe online.
So I added 2 capsules of vitamin C (Alka C) directly on the bottle this time no vitamin E since I don't really like the stickyness of it. Then I used hyaluronic acid(white hada labo) with a bit of water then added the liquid glycerin (Apollo brand). Shook the crap out of the bottle after but there was just so much vitamin C powder that  it was grainy to use for 3 days. Dapat siguro lusawin ko muna sa water before I add the glycerin. After 3 days of use and shaking it was smoothly mixed. After more than a week there's still no sign of yellowing of oxidizing. Yay!

As for the effects... I got the best effects with my latest formula without vitamin E and with some glycerin. My skin is brighter and it renews faster. Hoping to get pinkish skin with this!  ;D

Try nyo rin sissies! Siguradong fresh yung vitamin C serum nyo!  ;)

BTW I tried to slather it on my face but parang nagbloat yung muka ko the next day. Less is more for me. Tamang coverage lang.  ;)

hi sis! thank you so much for this. I'm excited to try this recipe that you've shared. I'll just finish the bottle of the recent serum that I've purchased. I've been looking for an effective anti-aging serum (below P1000) which can address my enlarged pores & fine lines, I've tried 1 & it didn't addressed those concerns of mine. The one I'm currently using has no noticable effect so far I hope the diy recipe you've shared would give me promising results :)

Again thank you so much! :)

I don't know how to explain this but my skin is oily but I feel that It's also very dehydrated (could be the weather). I am using the same products (skin care and makeup) but it is flaking. I am considering a night serum for this. I hope to get some suggestions.

TIA :)

Torn between Shu Uemura and Estee Lauder ANR :( Magkalapit lang price pero cheaper yung Shu. which do you think should I buy? I have combi skin type kasi, acne-prone (especially during my PMS days cause of hormones. grr.) I need something which will brighten my face, minimize, pimple scars (hindi naman malala), and control my oiliness. which do you recommend, sisses? :)

Ano po yung mas magandang tomato serum? From Eden's Paradise or Skin Potions?

Vitamin C serum made all the difference! I have sunspots/freckles from sun exposure (mestiza) and it cleared my face. Even my blemishes nagffade kaagad. :) Doesn't matter what brand, so as long as it's 20% vitamin C na derma grade. Best beauty discovery I ever had this year, specially helpful sa mga girls in their 20's.
