I got addicted to Vitamin C serum when I first tried Recast Vitamin-C Serum. It made such a huge difference to my skin that I couldn’t stop myself from buying it again and again. Recently, I thought to consider Prolixr Vitamin C Serum as from my last experience with Recast, I noticed a bit of variation. There was a difference in consistency and results were not up to the mark.
My blogger friend too shared the same that a lot of her readers shared their experience that Recast is not what it used to be, it is changed. I still don’t know what is the literal fact and why recast felt so different but this made me look for more vitamin-c serum options.
There are tons of vitamin-c serums online but I wanted to make sure I am going for the right one with the right percentage of vitamin c and hyaluronic acid in it.
After I lot of research, I finally made my decision to try Prolixr Beauty Shield Vitamin C serum with Antioxidants Enriched Formula. Plus it is cruelty-free, paraben-free, and free from other harsh ingredients so why not!
Let us see how Prolixr Serum worked for my sensitive and acne-prone skin…

REVIEW – Prolixr Vitamin C Serum
My Skin Type: Combination in Summers, Dry in Winters, Sensitive, and Acne-Prone Skin
Packaging: Prolixr Vitamin C Serum comes in a glass bottle with a dropper. The bottle is see-through which makes it easy to see how much of the product is left.
The outer packaging was totally torn off when I received it so I didn’t keep it for photography purposes.
Fragrance: It has a strong fruity fragrance. Usually, my senses react to such strong fruity and floral fragrances but this one didn’t tease my senses.
Now vitamin c serum has been an integral part of my skincare routine. From treating pimple marks, sun spots, pigmentation to uneven skin tone, vitamin c serum treats it all.
I bought Prolixr Vitamin C serum especially for the acne marks that too deep ones which I am still having around my chin.
I started using the serum day and night followed by a good moisturizer.
What I first noticed was the luminosity it added to my skin. Right after the first few uses, my skin looked so glowy and radiant. The first impressions of Prolixr Vitamin C Serum made me fall in love with it.
The way Prolixr Vitamin C Serum hydrated the skin resulting in that beautiful glow, made me want to appreciate it more and more.
After the regular usage, I noticed Prolixr Vitamin C Serum slightly leaves the skin sticky. Though it was temporary and settled down when massaged with the moisturizer. But it does leave the skin feeling a bit sticky for a while. Not like it was uncomfortable but had to bring the point.
With regular usage, I can definitely say that yes, Prolixr Vitamin C Serum does bring changes to your skin. There was visible clarity on my skin, my cheek area looked more supple and clear, and those tiny little sunspots were fading off.
But I didn’t notice any change in the major acne-marks I am having around my jawline. I didn’t notice any reduction in the pigmentation around my lips and nose and I didn’t notice any difference in the unevenness I am having around the chin.
I do understand that these factors take a lot more time to show change but then the point comes of the quantity! The quantity is super less. My serum is about to get over and it has not even lasted a month yet.
I feel that the brand made so many claims and I don’t feel like the product Prolixr Vitamin C Serum is able to meet them all. It even claimed to treat pimples and acne and there was no such result.
I think I am having neutral thoughts about Prolixr Vitamin C Serum. It is not one of the best, but not a failed one either. It did fade away a few tiny marks bringing clarity to the skin. It did make the skin glow and supple. But, it could have been better. I mean vitamin-c serum literally can do a lot better than just hydrating the skin.
For the price paid, I don’t think its worth it.
The good part, Prolixr Vitamin C Serum didn’t react with my skin. There were no breakouts or allergies.
I think I am still on a hunt for a really good vitamin-c serum. YBP is about to launch one so let us see. That will be worth the wait I feel.
Prolixr Vitamin C serum made a really good first impression with the luminosity and glow it added to the skin. It hydrated the skin so well leaving it soft and supple. It did fade away a few tiny spots bringing clarity to the skin but there were no results on the major acne marks I am having, pigmentation around the nose and lips, or even on the unevenness around the chin. Plus the quantity is super and doesn’t even last a whole month.
- Hydrates the skin
- Brings on the luminosity and glow
- Skin feels soft and supple
- Fades off tiny spots
- Makes skin a bit clearer
- No Breakouts
- Less Quantity
- No results on major acne marks, pigmentation, and unevenness
So this was it for today. I hope you have found Prolixr Vitamin C Serum Review Helpful.
