    • Why it's Cult

      Dispensing beauty wisdom for a decade, BeautyStat’s blog has evolved from an industry-leading authority – debunking beauty myths, predicting trends and writing unbiased reviews – to a stand-alone brand that has harnessed the learnings from years of exposure to all of the beautysphere’s latest and greatest. BeautyStat’s founder – cosmetic chemist Ron Robinson – has first-hand experience of product development (he formerly worked for some very well-known beauty brands) and has finally turned his attention to building a cutting-edge range of his own. Having struck gold when his friend introduced him to a game-changing technology that stabilises vitamin C, Ron new the time had arrived to create his own brand and deliver innovative, high-performance formulas direct to the consumer.

    BeautyStat Cosmetics Universal C Skin Refiner Reviews

    Not for acne prone skin
    The mattifying effect while looking great, cloged my pores and caused a lot of breakouts. Had to discontinue use. Disappointing due to the price of the product.
    Great results if you can get past the texture
    I have been using vitamin C's at around 10-15% for a while now, so was really excited to start introducing this to my routine at 20%! I do think it's important that you allow time for your skin to adjust to a more active serum, and if you're new to vitamin C definitely start on something lower to avoid possible sensitivity/flushing. I did notice a few under the skin red bumps on my face in the first few weeks of this which is unusual for me so I believe it's down to this. This has completely gone away now though, so nothing to worry about, just my skin getting used to a new and more active formulation. Now I'm a few months in I have to say I am really seeing results. While I don't love the grittier texture of this (I tend to prefer more liquid/runny formulas), you know you're getting a really active product with this. I haven't found this pill with any other products so far, and I've tested it with a few different oils and moisturisers to see how it faired, so no complaints on layering. I have two patches of pigmentation that have come up in recent years (sun damage as a lazy teenager is coming back to haunt me, wear your SPF please!) and I'm noticing that these are looking more faded and less apparent already. This has been my only change in terms of actives since using this so I'm putting it down to this with consistent SPF application every day. My skin is looking more even and bright already, but I'm excited to see how it looks when I finish the bottle as I'm sure I have a way to go still. I think if you can get past the texture, this is a winner. The ingredients listing is amazing and I love that it's so short and concise, you know everything in this is there for a reason, and a good one at that! I do find it leaves my skin looking a little more matte upon application, however after I've gone in with my HA and oil/moisturiser combo this completely disappears and I'm glowy again. If you're after a step-up in your vitamin C step this is definitely a winner!
    Stings and Texture is not the Best
    The experience of using this product wasn't the greatest. It stings upon application every time, which surprised me because this is the first time it has happened for me with an l-ascorbic acid product. I also find it hard to apply my regular moisturiser and sunscreen after using this. The matt texture of this serum made application of products that come after tricky - hard to spread and patchy. On the other hand, the packaging is good. I think it helps with decreasing product degradation.
    love the result but I hate the texture
    I love the results from this product but I really don‘t like the texture. It‘s so hard to apply all over your face. Because it is full of silicone you‘ll get a very matt finish. It wont match with every mouisturizer as well! For me it‘s to expensive and there are a lot of other Vitamin C products out there with better or same resaults.
    Gave me blackheads
    I suffered with pigmentation from a flare of acne I had recently so after reading all the positive reviews I decided to buy this even though it was very expensive for only 30ml! I have been using it for a month and haven’t noticed a difference with the pigmentation and it’s given me really bad blackheads all over my face. The only thing I liked was the glow it gave my skin but it’s a shame that’s all it done.
    The Holy Grail of Vitamin C serums!
    If you are going to get a vitamin c serum, get this one! You can just feel it working and it makes my dull winter skin look absolutely glowing! Once you get this you won’t look back!
    Brilliant!
    Oh, my word this is good! Please bring over the moisturiser too. I have heard very good things about it.
    Finally....holy grail found
    I have tried a lot of vitamin C serums over the past, most of them made me break out or I have not seen any results what so ever. This product makes my skin and me happy. My skin looks brighter, smoother, clearer. I am obsessed and I will definitely repurchase it. It is so good, that I have even stripped down my morning routine and this serum is the new STAR.
    A little obsessed...
    While I've always used Vit C in my routines and seen good results, I have not seen such instant skin-affinity and incredible results. I don't use the term transformational very often, but it has changed up my routine and made me rather Gollum-like with my orange & white bottlesesssss... The texture is disconcerting as it's a bit granular, but I've come to love it because I think that's part of what makes the formula work (otherwise why do it, Ron please review below if you read this?). The other thing is it tingles, a bit like a low-concentration AHA, this is the high 20% concentration making itself known. My skin is clearer, brighter and happier, it looks like I've had a mini facial every day. Fantastic serious skincare product with results for the impatient.
    Grin and bear the texture
    I swear by this stuff. Unfortunately, I have not dropped the habit of picking my blemishes, and thanks to this serum they fade super quick - didn't even realise it was supposed to do this - and leaves my skin looking soft and supple! After applying, I normally pat on my favourite moisturiser (CT magic cream) and I literally have perfect skin and always get complimented on my healthy glow when I decide not to wear foundation. Yes, it may sting a tiny bit (for 5 seconds max) especially if you exfoliate your face, and yes the texture isn't amazing, but if you want fresh looking, glowing skin (and less blemish scars) grin and bear the not so amazing texture.
    Smooth, but I want more glow
    I love a good Vitamin C serum, I mean I love a good glow achieving product to say the very least. I must say this serum does feel super smooth when applied to the skin however I find it leaves the skin feeling super matte and left with a film. Sadly I didn't get the glow I was looking for and it ending up not mixing well with my moisturiser. On the positive, I didn't experience any stinging or discomfort just wish I got more of the glow.
    Great concept, not user friendly
    I was very excited to try out this product as I have been using serums with vitamin C derivatives for a while and I wanted to try L-ascorbic acid. This is indubitably a great product from a formulation perspective but, in my opinion, it is not user friendly at all. The main issue is that it doesn't play well with the other products that I use in my routine. Besides that, I don't enjoy its texture - which is kind of slippery yet dry at the same time, but also quite granular - it almost seems that I am doing a mechanical exfoliation when I wash my face at night. It also gives my skin a very matte finish that I personally don't enjoy. Sadly, I won't be using this product on my face, but on my hands instead, which is a pity considering the price tag.
    Best Vitamin C
    I have tried so many vitamin C Serums, also very expensive ones such as Skin Ceuticals, and the only one I liked was Paula‘s Choice booster. Then came a sample of this one from Beautystat and I just had to buy it. It is incredible! Completely innovative texture and formula and boy does it work! Finally I was able to get rid of some of my most stubborn pigmentation areas. Just amazing! Might be too strong if you are just getting started with vitamin c (maybe start with Paula‘s Choice booster and then work yourself to this one). Absolute holy grail for me!
    Best of the best
    This is probably the most expensive vitamin C serum I've tried, but it's also the best one. It is extremely cosmetically elegant - silky texture (similar to makeup primer) and no smell (which I do appreciate a lot since most vitamin C serums have horrible smell). It does tingle a bit, but considering 20% concentration it's probably expectable. Skin instantly velvety and matte which I'm sure oily skin types will enjoy a lot. It doesn't provide any additional moisture, so if you have particularly dry skin you might want to look elsewhere. For my normal to dry skin this is something I will gladly use during summer, but I'm not sure how comfortable it's going to be during winter, hopefully it will be ok with thick moisturiser on top. Don't get me wrong, the serum is not drying at all, it's just not moisturising. Other than that, it is perfection and gives you the best healthy glowing skin you could expect from a serum
    unfortunately... this works really well!
    This is pretty expensive but after getting a sample I've since bought the full size. I noticed effects immediately and after a few days my skin looks brighter and a red mark where I'd picked a spot has totally gone. It recommends using morning and evening but I only use it in the morning. I have sensitive skin and aside from a little bit of tinging, I've had no reaction.
    Worth it
    I bought directly from the states and then the next day this was on Cult! I will buy from Cult in the future to avoid customs, but anyway. The product is expensive, there’s no denying that, and it won’t be in everyone’s budget. But what I will say is, if you only buy one skincare product this year (apart from your SPF of course) and your concerns are dullness or fine lines, THIS should be it. I have quite sensitive, fair and dehydrated skin and I could honestly tell the difference in softness from day 1. Brightness from the next day and then firmness from the day after that. I am only using once a day (both because of sensitivity and hopefully to make it last a bit longer!) and it does make my skin tingle, but not irritation at all. Personally my GOAT product.
