REVIEW: Banish Vitamin C Creme

The Banish Vitamin C Creme has a thick, almost softened butter consistency that spreads and absorbs really well. It surprisingly leaves absolutely no greasiness and doesn’t make you shiny. In fact, it’s almost matte. It smells kinda metallic as well?!

Star Ingredients:
Aloe Leaf Juice, Glycerin, Rosehip Fruit Oil, Emulsifying Wax NF, Ascorbyl Palmitate (Vitamin C Ester), Cranberry Fruit Extract, Red Raspberry Fruit Extract, Blueberry Fruit Extract, Tocopherol, Ascorbic Acid.

My experience:
this was a surprisingly good one for me! I was expecting this to be a suffocating product due to the thickness but it was actually the opposite! It had a beautiful non greasy finish that would be perfect for even very oily skin types. It was also very moisturizing and helped to lock in moisture during the day and night. It also didn’t cause pilling with SPF either. After 1.5 months of use, I honestly didn’t see much improvement in hyperpigmentation. I’ll probably attribute this to the Vitamin c ester that (Ascorbyl Palmitate) used since they tend to take longer to show effects. But I will say that newer spots tend to recover faster.

Will I purchase:
Maybe not haha. While I enjoyed the buttery texture of this cream, I failed to see a big difference to my hyperpigmentation (which it claims to target). At $49 for 50ml it’s also pretty expensive.

Conclusion:
1. Very moisturizing
2. Buttery, silky texture
3. Absolutely non greasy
4. No significant improvements to hyperpigmentation
5. Expensive

Recommended for:
Oily to combination (dry) skin types. I feel like very dry skin types may find this lacks emolliency or sufficient moisturization. This does not contain fragrance so sensitive skin should able to use it too.
