Transderma C

Have just received a sample tester from a great friend to try out this Vitamin C serum from Japan months ago.
I feel that's a bit oily when I first try it on my hand but after I used it on my face it wasn't so bad at all! In fact I would say is quite good instead! It really helps to lighten & even out my uneven skin tone after nearly two weeks of usage. The best thing of it is that this Vitamin C serum is not as irritating as those that I've used before, which gives me the biting sensation. Heard that Tranderma C serum is now the best selling in Japan,Korea & even Taiwan!
Just hope that Singapore will be launching this soon!
