HI-REVIEW: By Wishtrend Pure Vitamin C 15% With Ferulic Acid Serum 💡

Hi Beauties💗

In this blog I would like to introduce you guys to another Vitamin C serum -- ​the By Wishtrend Pure Vitamin C 15% with Ferulic Acid Serum! I believe that some of you beauties may have heard a lot about the By Wishtrend Pure Vitamin C 21.5% Advanced Serum which is a super popular product​ as it is so effective at fading acne scars and brightening complexion.​ However, some people with sensitive skin (like me!) have always been hesitant to try it out because of the high concentration and potency. Therefore, Wishtrend came out with the new ​Vitamin C 15% with Ferulic Acid Serum​ for us sensitive Beauties so it can ​effectively ​lighten hyperpigmentation yet being gentle to the skin​ ✨

Price​: $45
Quantity​: 30ml
How to use​: Apply 3-4 drops on your palm and gently pat over the face. Pat lightly until it fully absorbs.


Just like I mentioned previously, By Wishtrend has recently come out with a more gentle vitamin c serum compared to the existing 21.5% serum. This new vitamin C serum contains 1​5%pure vitamin C ​which helps with antioxidant care, skin brightening, acne prevention, boost collagen, and recovers the skin from UV rays. It also contains ​0.5% ferulic acid,​ which maximizes the antioxidant and antibacterial effect of vitamin C 🍋

Let me break down the key ingredients for you! There are two main types of ingredients: 1) Vitamin Complex and 2) Antioxidant ingredient.

1. Vitamin Complex​

= a combination of pure vitamin C & vitamin C derivatives for more effective results​ 💡

Ascorbic acid​ is The king of Vitamin C! It is known to ​inhibit melanin formation on the skin, fade hyperpigmentation, brighten complexion and to boost synthesis of collagen on the skin​. Also, this ingredient makes it an effective serum to use all four seasons as it helps recover damaged skin from UV rays! And 15% of ascorbic acid is the golden ratio for effective antioxidant and brightening care without being too harsh on the skin.

Vitamin tree water a​nd Vitamin C are ‘best friends’ and make a great pair together. This serum contains43%of Vitamin tree water and the high level of vitamins protect skin against free radicals and really maximizes the antioxidant effect and helps strengthen the skin’s natural barrier. ​This ingredient also adds moisture back to the skin hence it is what makes this serum a hydrating vitamin c serum.​

2. Antioxidant Ingredient

Antioxidant ingredient is another ‘best friend’ of Vitamin C as it synergises with vitamin C without inducing skin irritation. Ferulic Acid was specifically chosen for this serum as it was found to be the best partner to Vitamin C among all antioxidants. It helps bring out the brightening synergy, maximises the antioxidant effect of ascorbic acid, while keeping the formula stable and being low-irritant to the skin. Ferulic acid is also effective for acne care thanks to its antibacterial property.

Apart from the key ingredients I mentioned above, this serum also contains ​sodium ascorbyl phosphate​ - another form of vitamin C, and ​niacinamide​, which is a great addition to ascorbic acid which is also known for its skin-brightening and texture-improving properties. Another star ingredient is the ​sea buckthorn water ​which boosts its antioxidant content and is also said to have anti-inflammatory properties, as well as a high vitamin content.

Personal Thoughts

Packaging:​ Dark dropper bottle just like the 21.5% serum. The dropper bottle makes it very easy to use and hygienic​ ✔ I would recommend keeping the product somewhere dark avoiding direct sunlight ☀️

Texture:​ Very light and runny, gets absorbed fast into the skin. It is very thin and hydrating, giving instant glow to the skin.

Results:​ As soon as I put on the serum I could feel that it instantly adds bit more moisture to my skin and there was so stinging feelings at all. The next morning I could tell my ​complexion was brighter and more even,​ so I can say that this serum is definitely quite effective. However, unfortunately on the second day of using this serum ​I started to develop reactions to the serum​ 😭 ​I think this was because of ​my skin being extra sensitive​ so 15% pure Vit C was still a little too much for it to handle.

Overall, this serum would be perfect for those beauties who are looking for ​a hydrating vitamin c serum that can effectively brighten skin, has antibacterial and antioxidant properties, and high-potent yet hypoallergenic​.

I would highly recommend it for Beauties ​struggling with acne scarring, hyperpigmentation and signs of aging (loss of skin elasticity)​. For those of you with sensitive skin, you do have to be careful but you can still give this serum a go because I have friends with sensitive skin and they love using this product.

This product sits in the middle of the Klairs' 5% Vit C serum and the By Wishtrend 21.5% serum. So if you find Klair’s one not effective enough or if you think 21.5% is too potent then definitely give this product a try!

Thank you for reading till the end. See you guys in the next blog and let’s be pretty  💗
