Vitamin C Anti-Aging Serum by Maple Holistics


Maple Holistics Vitamin C Anti aging Serum

Good afternoon everyone, I have a review of a new serum I’ve been trying out recently for you all today! Maple Holistics are a US based beauty company who recently got in touch offering to send one of their products for me to try out! They develop and manufacture their own natural cosmetics which are animal cruelty free in the USA and believe in providing a natural, holistic range of products that enhance their user’s hygiene, health and daily living. After seeing their products crop up on a few blogs over the last month or so and reading this review by Jessica, I was intrigued to try the Vitamin C Anti-Aging Serum* so here are my thoughts!

Now, while anti-aging products themselves aren’t high on my list of priorities, you can never start too early and a lot of the ingredients looked like they would crossover quite nicely into my skincare routine. As well as Vitamin C, this serum contains hyaluronic acid which is supposed to help retain moisture, aloe vera and Vitamins A and E! It promises to help with fine lines, wrinkles and discolouration as well as reverse sun damage and stimulate collagen levels.

Now I can’t say it’s done all this for me but the biggest difference I have noticed is around my nose which is usually constantly flaky (attractive, I know) even though I generally have quite oily skin. These flakes are all gone and though I am sure they will begin to play up again with the change in weather and indoor heating etc. I am so glad I have this serum now to keep better control of it and it hasn’t made my skin any oilier! My makeup is sitting on my skin a lot better than usual too as it has no dry patches to cling to so I will be using this religiously over the winter to keep my skin looking as best as it can! I’m hoping with a bit more use I will see a difference with discolouration as I suffer with pigmentation issues from old acne scarring so I will definitely be on the lookout for improvements!

The packaging of this serum is quite like what you would find a facial oil come in so I was half expecting the consistency to be the same. The serum however feels almost slippery (in a good way!) and has an inoffensive, gentle scent that disappears as soon as the serum dries in, which is very quickly, leaving a smooth dry face. The dropper is very easy to control and I’ve been using 2 to 3 drops of this every night and every other morning and rubbing it onto my face and neck before moisturising. It takes seconds for it to dry in and leaves my skin feeling smooth, ready for makeup and not tacky at all.

Overall, I have been loving this serum and am so grateful I got to try it so thanks very much to Maple Holistics and Edumuch who are sponsoring their blogger connection!

  9. This serum definitely sounds nice, so glad that it has worked for you! My skin doesn't really get a long with Vitamin C serums and creams- they tend to break me out.

    1. Ah that sucks! I'm always scared to try new skincare as my skin is so temperamental so I'm happy this didn't cause me any breakouts :D xx

  10. Vitamin C has become a very popular skincare ingredient but the only time I used a Vit C serum, I've noticed it kind of clogged my skin a little. Was it the product itself or vitamin C? I don't know. Need to put it to the test properly. This sounds like a lovely serum. x

    1. I haven't had that problem thankfully! It can be strange how one product works so well for someone and not so well for another! Xx

  11. I'm all serum-ed out right now, I've been trying so many recently. This looks so similar to one I'm testing out by a brand called InstaNatural. I'd be really intrigued to see how it compares :)

  22. I've never tried anything like this before, but have included Vitamin C into my skincare routine before with a mist & a moisturiser. It was great for adding that healthy glow to the skin & keeping my skin looking fresh x

    1. I find it to be really gentle and although my skin's not overly sensitive it is acne prone and this hasn't affected it but you could get in contact with them if you want to know for sure :) xx

  26. Just by saying cruelty free, I am already sold on this product. Love that more and more companies are popping up like that. x
