Review: IDS C-Plus

Omg this has got to be one of the best discoveries of the year 😀 Seldom have I attended an event and gotten so hyped up about all their products  – even my pal from Today paper has caught the bug from me and getting superbly excited about IDS products. Of course, I can’t be a tease and just be posting tantalizing photos of the product without an actual review. Here’s the first of what I foresee to be a truckload of IDS product reviews coming up on this blog.

I say…

  • It comes in a lightweight plastic bottle with a matte finish and a pump dispenser.
  • Now, don’t you go vigorously shaking this bottle – the white portion at the bottom isn’t a liquid-suspension that requires shaking. Instead, it’s the “floor” of the bottle that slowly rises up as the product is consumed over time.
  • There is no scent whatsoever – Max-C, a similar DRx product had somewhat of a botanical, non-fragrant scent stench.
  • Max-C had a more gel-like form whilst this C-Plus is completely liquid, which makes it so quickly and easily absorbed. In fact, by the time I got to applying this on my chin/jawline area, the forehead area already had no trace of the product. The tiny voice in my head emulates my skin going “slurrrrrp” everytime I apply this.
  • There’s no after-feel – it’s not sticky, not oily, not greasy, nothing.
  • My skin feels firmer, and it looks distinctively clearer and more radiant. There’s more life to my skin.
  • A couple of the fine lines have disappeared and some of my open pores have shrunk slightly – good riddance!
  • I’ve also applied this on my neck, and the skin quality seems to have improved as well (thankfully, without a breakout). It’s kinda like a boost of almost-concentrated Vitamin C to the skin.
  • Because it’s also so lightweight, I prefer to use this in the day before the OM (Oil-Free Moisturiser – review coming soon!) so that my makeup doesn’t slide off even if I pile on the products.
  • P.S. Did you know that Dr S K Tan collaborated with a leading Vitamin C specialist in the US (or Japan, my memory fails me) to create this product?

This has become one of my must-apply products everyday, and I highly recommend this to anyone whose skin needs a boost of life. For more information about C-Plus, click here.

  2. Hi, I actually went to DRx and gotten some product. Do you think I should get IDS C-plus or should I get MAX C as introduced by DRx. In a dilemma T_T

    • Hmm it really depends on personal preference. I prefer C-Plus cos it’s absorbed really quickly and doesn’t have much scent. In terms of efficacy, my skin reacts better to the C-Plus.however, I don’t know your skin type and the results you’ll get when you use the two products though..
