Beauty Pie Super Healthy Skin Daily Vitamin C Defence serum review

The Beauty Pie challenge may be over but the reviews will keep coming! Today’s post will be a full review of the Super Healthy Skin Daily Vitamin C Defence serum I picked up in the second month of my challenge.

Super Healthy Skin Daily Vitamin C Defence serum is an antioxidant serum with Vitamin C, raspberry stem cells, Thymeluen 4 BG 100 and Echinacea extract to help fight free radicals, soothe and tone skin to maintain optimal health. It also has shea butter for moisture and softening.


I am an antioxidant fanatic! Ever since I discovered Resveratrol and Ferulic acid from The Ordinary and researching more on antioxidants and their role in skincare, I have never left the house without them. I have been using the Super Healthy Skin Daily Vitamin C Defence serum since I picked it up in February, in the mornings underneath my moisturiser.

The serum itself has a very watery lightweight texture and I have no issues with it sinking into my skin. It adds a bit of hydration and leaves the skin feeling soft and smooth. I have had no issues with this piling or combining it with other products. I still mix my moisturiser with a few drops of TO Resveratrol and Ferulic acid (the more antioxidants the merrier) and still had no issues with piling. I have not experienced any irritation with the products.

The thing with this serum and some products is that they do not necessarily have a ‘visible effect’ on the skin i.e. whilst I absolutely love this serum I cannot say I have noticed a huge improvement in my skin in terms of radiance or brightness due to the serum. I know it’s protecting my skin because the ingredients are formulated to do so and obviously Vitamin C is a well-known antioxidant. Looking at the ingredient list, the ingredients are in a good position meaning there’s enough of the key ingredients for me to experience benefits ( the first 10- 15 ingredients of any product are responsible for the claims of the product)  I can say that it’s worked with the other ingredients in my routine to help my skin be more radiant following a bout of hormonal breakouts in March


This is an antioxidant serum I absolutely love! I love how easy it is to use and combines with other products in my routine. I wanted a serum I could use in the morning underneath moisturiser but also still use my antioxidant from the ordinary without experiencing piling and this allows me to do that. It is slightly hydrating and leaves the skin glowing but no oily residue. I am almost done with this bottle, oh let’s talk about how lux that bottle is. It’s heavy and feels expensive plus the pump has never let me down! I am already gearing up to get a 2nd bottle, I think this will be a staple in my routine for a while ( I know they are releasing a Vitamin C serum/lotion soon!).

I would recommend if you want to start using antioxidants in your routine.

Beauty Pie Skincare Routine Update

1 month down, 1 to go! This is the 2nd and final month of my Beauty Pie 2 month skincare challenge and I decided for the 2nd month to get some new products to test ( also because I have run out of some stuff lol). The aim of my challenge was to test out as many BP products from all the different collections, check out the introductory post here. So far, I have two reviews up Japanfusion Cleanser and Hydra Prep Lotion.

New Beauty Pie products

For the month of Feb, I decided to pick up and use some new BP products! For my morning routine, I now have the Super Healthy Skin Daily Vitamin C Defence Serum (previously using the Triple Hyaluronic HA & Peptide serum). I LOVE vitamin C so it was only natural I picked this up (it’s also the only Vitamin C serum they have).

For cleansers I have the Super Healthy Skin Deep Purifying Clay Cleanser, I will not be using this very morning because I find it slightly difficult to spread on dry skin and I am not the biggest fan of the texture. You guys know how I feel about the Japan Fusion cleanser however it is sold out 😦 . I also wanted to get the Double Phase cleanser BUT I have finished my allowance already.  I am currently using the B Creamy face cleanser or the Simple Moisturising Face wash for AM cleansing.

For my evening routine, I have also picked up the Frutizyme Five Minute Facial. This is one of their bestselling face masks so I am very excited to try it out! I also bought the Plantastic Micro peeling drops. This will be used as and when I experience texture in place of my TO Salicylic acid ( I LOVE the TO Salicylic acid so this BP serum HUGE boots to fill! Dermalogica Breakout serum couldn’t fill that spot lol). My first impressions of this is not great but I will keep trying it

Quick update on the challenge

I have finished 1 product and I have a tiny bit left of my super Healthy Skin daily Moisture Lotion. I have two reviews on the blog and a further two coming within the next week or two. I am leaving serum reviews towards the end of the 2 month period, that way I would have a much better and informative review for you guys.

That’s all folks! I also picked up a re purchase of the Daily Moisture Lotion but I won’t actually be using it straight away. There is a DHC cream I really have to use up before June this year. Again because my allowance is finished I could pick up another day cream for review but not to worry even when my challenge is over, I will still be doing BP reviews here and there.

PS- I am not really feeling the new products I picked up. I’m trying to not let my first impressions skew my thoughts regarding them but so far after a few uses, I am not impressed. Let’s see

See you soon!
