Emma Hardie Vitamin C Intense Daily Serum Review
This Emma Hardie Vitamin C Intense Daily Serum review examines the manufacturer’s claims that this lightweight product will reduce pigmentation, brighten and nourish skin, and protect the skin from external aggressors. Can the product live up to these claims? Is this the best anti-aging solution available on the market? We examine an array of product aspects to help you find the answers.
- Niacinamide (Vitamin B3)
- Caprylyl Glycol
- Hydrogenated Lecithin
- Dicaprylyl Carbonate
Vitamin B3 is a restorative ingredient that works to reduce wrinkles, refine uneven skin tone, and brighten the skin. Glycerin is a hydrating ingredient that retains the skin’s moisture. Hydroxyacetophenone (a relatively new ingredient) acts as a preservative booster, anti-irritant, and an antioxidant which protects the skin from external environmental aggressors like free radicals. Caprylyl Glycol is a moisturizing agent and Hydrogenated Lecithin stabilizes the skin barrier that also moisturizes the skin. Dicaprylyl Carbonate and Propanediol, although a fragranced ingredient, enhances the absorption of other ingredients as well as leaves the skin feeling velvety smooth. While these ingredients may prove beneficial, the lack of patented ingredients such as collagen-boosting Pepha-Tight and wrinkle-reducing Argireline NP is a concern and makes us question both the quality and efficacy of this product when compared to competitor brands. There is no mention of GMP certification or if this product is animal-friendly, which brings the quality and ethics of the product’s manufacturing process into question.
To use this product, apply 1 – 3 pumps of product to the skin – warming it before application. The skin should be cleansed and moisturizer can be applied after using this serum. These are adequate instructions of use. We are uncertain of the efficacy of this product as the manufacturer does not provide the potency of the active ingredients.
A bottle of Emma Hardie Vitamin C Intense Daily Serum can be purchased directly from the manufacturer’s website, retailing for $69.79. This is relatively expensive, especially considering the manufacturer’s website does not state the volume of the bottle you can expect to receive with purchase. There are no discounts or bulk offers available, which further increases the cost of this product with long-term use.
Emma Hardie claims to offer a guarantee for used products, suggesting a level of confidence in product efficacy. However, the return policy is vague and omits important information such as the duration of the period applicable for returns. Customers could be denied their refund because of this. Furthermore, there where limited customer reviews available online. Of the few we did find, there where many complaints that this product did not live up to its claims.
Emma Hardie Vitamin C Intense Daily Serum Review – The Bottom Line
Emma Hardie Vitamin C Intense Daily Serum has an array of ingredients that have been known to promote younger-looking skin. However, the formula is lacking the support of patented ingredients proven to deliver results. In saying so, this product may not be as effective as other brands on the market. The price is relatively expensive and, although there is a guarantee available, it is vague and unreliable. There are also negative customer reviews. In saying so, we do not recommend this product.
