First Impressions
Can I just say how divine the COMMONLABS Vitamin C Brightening Gel Cream smells like? What's amazing about this is that it contains no artificial fragrance, the citrusy smell is all thanks to its fruit extract. With a light orange translucent appearance, the COMMONLABS Vitamin C Brightening Gel Cream comes in a rich gel-like texture.


Highly hydrating yet non-greasy, the COMMONLABS Vitamin C Brightening Gel Cream works perfectly well with my oily, acne-prone skin. I already had high hopes for it since it's a water-based cream and true enough, it didn't clog my pores. I love it leaves my skin looking dewy and how it leaves a moisture barrier on my skin that doesn't feel sticky at all, making it perfect for my nighttime routine. It's also suitable for my morning skincare routine since it's really light on my skin.

PHA and Vitamin C
Although PHA is a milder version of AHA, it might not work well for your skin to have PHA mixed with Vitamin C. This may have worked really well for my skin but you should take caution and always patch test for any kind of product to avoid possible irritation. If your skin can handle this combination then you'll get to enjoy the benefit of having Vitamin C penetrate deeper into your skin.
