🔥Just when I ordered a new bottle of my fave @lovephilosophy Turbo Booster C Powder, I fund out that @Deciem The Ordinary is cooking up their own version of it!!! 😃You guys, this is really exciting to me! I mean, I am such a bi fan of Turbo Booster and have long lost count of the bottles I went through for the last decade. I always have it on hand as a great non-oxidizing Vit C option, even if I using it along any other Vit C potions I may be experimenting with. 🌈You may have also seen on my feed how I add it to the @madhippieskinproducts Vit C Serum to re-create the iconic - and yet frustratingly expensive and fast oxidizing SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic Serum;-))
♥️FORMULA: One of my friends asked me if Turbo C is just a glorified Vit C Powder, and can’t she just sprinkle some Ascorbic Acid Powder from a capsule into her cream… IMHO there is more to the Turbo C thats just L-AA…just take a look at the ingredient list:'
Ascorbic Acid, Panthenol, Zinc Pca, Copper PCA, Camellia Oleifera Leaf Juice, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Arginine, Cysteine, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice ✨👍✨
⁉️Will #theordinaryskincare power consist of the L-AA only, or will they add some side-actives and make a comparable product? .'
♥️PH: Also, there the PH Issue. The write-up on the package promises a proper PH when added to yr serum or moisturizer, and I am not even going to speculate how they can promise that, I am not a cosmetic chemist… 😌I am a bit (not entirely!) more relaxed now about this whole PH issue when it comes to Acids and Vit C thanks to the brilliant Stephen @KindOfStephen 💕 (follow him and watch the today’s InstaStories!) who happens to be exactly what I am not - you guessed it - a cosmetic chemist! … '
⁉️Wondering what The Ordinary will recommend RE the PH of the products to mix it with…
♥️COST: Philosophy charges $39 for 0.25 oz of this very pleasant, user-friendly white powder, and ⁉️ I can’t wait to see what will the price be for the Ordinary, which seems to contain twice as much of the product ! :-))
😉So many rhetorical questions! But I will absolutely order The Ordinary Vit C Powder once it comes out, and will see how they compare on this blog…FUN! ✨
