Ultraceuticals Ultra C10+ Firming Serum || #RivetReview

The brainchild of Dr. Geoffrey Heber, of Heber Davis Skin Clinic Broadway, started out as a project in a garage that grew to be one of the most popular and respected cosmeceutical lines in Australia. Ultraceuticals is effective skincare for all types and conditions.

I had attended a media event for Ultraceuticals back when I was still studying to be a beauty therapist and only dreaming about becoming a dermal clinician, where was gifted the C10+ Firming Serum. I finally cracked it open and I have regrets not doing it sooner.


Vitamin C is a proven ingredient in skincare. It took me a while to get back onto the C bandwagon, but this was the turning point. My skin suffered a lot last winter; it became very dry and crepey because of the dry weather, and it thinned out. I was using another C serum, which I dedicated to using up before I started this, but it wasn't giving me any results.

Ultraceuticals Ultra C10+ Firming Serum is a 10% Ascorbic Acid product. The Ascorbic Acid is held in a water based formula. Powerful peptides MicroCollagen and Microelastin® aid in firming skin. I don't even need to talk about what's in it, the Beauty Heaven community loves it, and it won the POPSUGAR 2015 Health & Beauty Award for 'Best High Performance Skincare'.

The product is a clear orange liquid with a slightly oily texture. It has a rather strong alcohol scent, but it doesn't bother me. The 30mL bottle is airtight, and has a locking pump. This serum is recommended to be used in the AM in conjunction with sun protection.

It was recommended that this product be introduced slowly, and I began to use it every second morning, but I had realized it doesn't irritate me as much as I had thought, so after less than a week, I went ahead and used it every morning. I initially started out with two pumps, but wound up having way more than I needed on my face, so I reduced that to one pump. Being summer, I sweat a lot after my shower and all that extra sweat gives my skin a slightly oily appearance during the day.


My skin hasn't been this clear in a long time! It doesn't feel weak anymore and it heals really fast if I get a wound. My skin went from being very crepey to well hydrated and strong. Loving my skin right now, thanks Ultraceuticals!
