Ever since I got a complexion analysis, I’ve had vitamin C on the brain.
Like most people, I have some redness issues around nostrils and cheeks thanks to broken capillaries.
The skin care consultant who performed the analysis on me recommended vitamin C treatment, but the particular product she suggested wasn’t my favorite — the alcohol in it stung my skin a bit.
Since then, I’ve been on the search for a vitamin C serum sans alcohol, and was excited when Sevani Botanica offered to send me its star vitamin C serum: Meet Sevani Botanica’s C + Resveratrol Anti-Aging Elixir.
This elixir boasts a light, creamy formula that easily absorbs into the skin and provides a thicker layer of protection than typical serums or oils.
It has a light orange/tangerine scent that’s not overpowering at all, and it leaves this luminous glow to your skin — you could wear this elixir pre-moisturizer for day or pre-oil treatment at night (be sure to admire yourself before hitting the sack!).
While I’m an oil lover at heart, I’ve become accustomed to Sevani Botanica’s formula post-wash and tone — I use it as my base layer before bedtime and then slick on a layer of ultra-hydrating oil on top (more on that later) to seal everything in before it’s bedtime repair-time.
Wanna know what’s inside this jar of goodness? Let’s cruise through the ingredients list.

It’s quite the impressive concoction! The blend of natural botanicals and cutting-edge actives keep skin looking its best — no wrinkles here! (OK, I’m 27. But I’d like to keep it this way … gotta start somewhere!)
I love that it contains collagen-boosting amino peptides, vitamin C (the whole point of this search) and skin-loving resveratrol to help improve elasticity and keep my skin hydrated so it can repair itself during the night.
I find that, in the morning, my skin feels oh-so-soft and I still have that dewy glow — hooray for a natural beauty product that my skin drinks up and is satisfied by even in the morning!
