To Repurchase Or Not To Repurchase- Eternal Beauty Vitamin C Treatment Cream

Vitamin C is such a crucial ingredient in an anti-ageing routine. Especially good for brightening the skin, I have quite pigmented skin, so this is a must for me! I generally like to incorporate Vitamin C into my skincare regime through serum form. Finding the right product can be a nightmare. Often the content just isn't potent enough, and when it is, the product can get quite expensive. This is when I turned to ebay to check out my options and prices. With my budget I need value for money.

My search on ebay brought me to Eternal Beauty 30% Vitamin C Treatment Cream The listing gave quite a spiel, powerful antioxidant, protects skin from free radicals and sun damage. Improves lines, wrinkles, brown spots and even acne, oh, and best skin cream ever. I should have returned to my search and never looked back, right? Yes, it all sounded too good to be true. But, I decided to check out feedback, which is 100% positive, by the way. When I read that there were repeat customers and buyers purchasing for others, I just had to give it a try.

 As this product is in a shea butter base, it is rather thick. Just a small amount warmed on the finger tips is all that's needed for face and neck. 

Would I repurchase? Yes! Although my skin hasn't changed radically, I was impressed enough with the brightening and super hydration that I'm committed to really continuing with this vitamin C cream. My skin hasn't felt so soft in some time. 

The only "problem" that I came across, is that this cream does not seem to play nice with other products. If any residue of previous products are still on the skin, this product will ball up. I just make sure I wait some time before applying over my serums and eye cream. I'm normally doing other things in the morning, so I just return to the bathroom once I feel enough time has passed, around 15 minutes. Warming up on the palms of the hands and just patting into the skin also works well. Believe me, it's totally worth the "extra" effort.

It is important to note that this cream cannot get near any water, whether in the bathroom, or on the face, it will deem the product ineffective.

Being in a jar was a worry to me, after Hailey drilling into her readers just how important airless type packaging is for active ingredients in a product, I for one have been listening! 

I shot seller Annette a quick email,and she ever so promptly wrote me "This product is unique and will never go off. I say never, but probably mean at least 10 years. The only thing that can happen is if you get water into the cream, or let it come in contact with wet hands. It only has 3 ingredients. The way that the vitamin C is ground is the secret. It is the only product in the world of its kind. Air does not effect the stability of this product."

I seriously love love love this cream, and am hoping that further use will bring me the skin that I've been dreaming of.

  2. Wow sounds terrific indie - I'm far more inclined to try something that a friend recommends than buy cold turkey. I've a backlog to get through but as soon as I've caught up I'd love to give this a go ♡
