Pineapple

A potent source of natural vitamin C, natural AHA, and bromelain enzymes for bright, smooth, and hydrated skin. It visibly fades dark spots, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation for smoother, clearer skin.

Ascorbic Acid

One of the most potent forms of vitamin C, ascorbic acid helps to brighten your complexion and even out your skin tone while helping to visibly reduce signs of premature aging like fine lines and wrinkles.

3-O-Ethyl Ascorbic Acid

A powerful yet stable vitamin C derivative made up of 75% Ascorbic Acid and 25% Ethyl Group. The Ethyl Group is a small carbon unit that stabilizes the ascorbic acid while keeping it as pure as possible. It further helps to brighten and even skin tone while acting as a powerful antioxidant giving you your glowiest skin ever.

Hyaluronic Acid

Hydrates and plumps skin by attracting water to maintain long-lasting hydration. Your one-way ticket to dewy, refreshed skin that looks smoother and rejuvenated.

Vitamin E

An antioxidant-rich powerhouse that helps to deeply hydrate and visibly protect skin, making this serum powerful and super nourishing.

Apply 1-2 drops onto clean skin and gently pat into the skin for optimal absorption. Apply daily, morning and night, and follow with moisturizer. During the day, follow with sunscreen. For sensitive skin types, use 3-4 times a week and gradually increase usage.

For maximum potency, store in a cool, dry place, out of direct sunlight. Tightly close cap after usage.

What is the percentage of Vitamin C?

We formulated Pineapple-C with a proprietary concentration of 3 different forms of Vitamin C, including 22% Vitamin C rich pineapple juice, the most common form, L-AA and the less common but much more stable derivative, 3-O-Ethyl Acid. This combination makes this a very potent brightening serum!

What type of packaging is this formula in?

Because Vitamin C can be unstable, packaging was an important consideration for us. The glass bottle that Pineapple C is housed in is opaque and coated with a UV protectant. We always recommend storing any Vitamin C serum in a cool, dry place. The fridge is a great idea!

Why the smell?

Some of you smell tropical goodness while others notice a more distinct scent. Everyone experiences the scent of vitamin C differently, and some of you may be noticing how it interacts with the scent of natural pineapple juice, which makes up 22% of our formula. This is totally normal and has no bearing on the efficacy or stability of the formula—you'll get that amazing glass skin look either way.

Can I Recycle It?

Yes! Our shelfie-worthy bottle is made with 20% recycled glass and is 100% recyclable. Just rinse it after use and place it in your recycling bin. Make sure to separate each individual part of the dropper before placing them in your recycling bin.

Our cardboard cartons are made with a blend of PEFC-certified recycled paper, free of acids and heavy metal, printed with soy ink, and are 100% recyclable.

Great Serum for Dark Spots

Just started using this serum daily about a month ago and have seen a noticeable difference in my skin, mainly in the fading of my dark spots which are from melasma due to my birth control. I use this serum once in the morning and it keeps my spots at bay. Doesn’t smell the best but it also doesn’t irritate my skin which is a huge bonus in my book. Will be repurchasing when I run out.

Light and nourishing

You can tell it’s real pineapple in the ingredients because it smells like real fruit. I love how my skin feels after putting on this serum. I’ve had a few dark sports and my skin looked dull, this serum boosted my skin and truly gave it the glow glam that I was looking for.

Not my favorite

While I love this line of products, I found the pineapple c bright serum to not be a favorite. Even with two drops, the consistency is very tacky, even upon drying. Unfortunately, I’ll go back to a different vitamin c serum. I have however found great luck with other products from glow recipe. I had some correspondence about this serum with Lisy via email, she was very inconsistent and unprofessional.

Very Rich in texture

I love this serum it gives my skin that glassy glow! After watching influencers try it they said it smelled like soy sauce, I tried it with an open mind and it smells like pineapple to me but yes it does also smell a little bit like soy sauce, I mix it in with my other glow recipe moisturizers and the banana or watermelon take over the pineapple scent. So thumbs up on this serum!
