The disadvantage of pure Vitamin C is that it is super unstable, and hard to formulate with. This formula uses a low pH and extra antioxidants to help to stabilize Vitamin C, but even like this, C-Glow comes only with a couple of months shelf-life.
The official shelf life of C-Glow is 6 months from production, unopened and stored in the fridge. To ensure maximum freshness, we manufacture small batches of C-Glow every week, and we store this product in the fridge in all of our warehouses. On average, by the time a C-Glow reaches our customers it is about 2-3 weeks “old”. We recommend you to store it in the fridge, too, where it keeps fresh at least for 3 months (if unopened, it keeps for a couple of months more), while it keeps about 6 weeks at room temperature. If going to the fridge every day for your C-Glow does not sound comfortable, we recommend to use this 10 ml mini bottle. You can easily decant 5-10 days worth of C-Glow into it, and store the mini bottle in the bathroom, while having the C-Glow bottle in the fridge. Click here for the C-Glow mini bottle.
Who is it for?
how to use it?
Apply a few drops to the face after cleansing, before using other serums and/or creams. Ideal to use in the AM, but can be applied in the PM as well. As the C-Glow formula is water-like, we recommend that you put a drop directly onto your face and quickly pat it on with your other hand.
Shelf life: 6 months from production (unopened), 3 months PAO (period after opening).

I love your Vitamin C, and would love to order it every 3 months, but in order pay a reasonable shipping costs of 5 eur, i have to spend at least 25 euros. I don't need so much skincare every 3 months. If I buy only couple of serums, it is still not 25 eur and i have to pay 15 eur for shipping. It is unreasonable to have such high shipping costs and I have not seen any brand asking to spend 25 eur at their shop to het a decent shipping costs for 5 eur. Yes, if someone spends 50 eur , you can grant a free shipping, but others maybe want to buy a few serums plus a reasonable shipping costs, but that is not possible in your store. It is a pitty, because i do love couple of products of G&G but I cant afford these shipping costs.:( I hope you can consider to make them more reasonable.
I like it very much but it is a little bit difficult to travel because it needs to be refrigerate …how can I do ???
Light texture, absorbs quickly, perfect in the mornig as first serum after cleansing, gives immediate radiance to skin. I use the complete range of G&G products. My only recommendation (not to quality, it is perfect) woulb be regarding the packaging. This is a high end product deserves a fancier and airtight bottle. Anyway, I’m a big fan!!!
I am using C glow the last year and half. My skin is brighter and the fact that the product is so fresh, I can keep it in the fridge for 2 to 3 months. Not planning to change anytime soon!
