Update: This was my all time favourite but unfortunately it has been discontinued. Read the post to know how vitamin C worked for me. I have substituted this with The Body Shop Vitamin C capsules or sometimes I even buy vitamin C serum from Cipla and they work well.
Today I will be talking about my favorite product which does not look fancy but the results are beyond comparison to the other fancier creams available.
There was a time when I had started ignoring my skin. Forget about CTM I wasn’t even moisturizing my skin and yeah after some time I got it back. My face became dull, lifeless with slight open pores, pigmentation and at this point of time nothing was working for me. That’s when I consulted a dermatologist and she gave me his magical disc.

My Experience with Dr Reddy’s Strea C 10:
These vitamin C capsules come in a circular disc. The disc contains 28 veggie caps each in a separate compartment. You have to rotate the disc and open the lid to pull out the capsule. The capsule has to be broken to take the product out. The capsules are very soft and can be easily snipped open with the nails. The product in each capsule is enough to cover the entire face and neck.
Vitamin C is that magical vitamin that is effective in boosting the production of collagen, protecting the skin from free radicals developed due to sun exposure, treats discoloration and redness and also heals minor wounds.
Strea C10 has vitamin c in the most potent form; it is devoid of any kind of fragrances or chemicals. Vitamin C loses its properties when exposed to atmosphere hence Strea c10 has separate veggie caps. This product ensures that we get the real benefits of vitamin c. One capsule can be applied every day hence a disc lasts for a month.
The product looks like oil when taken onto the palm but it absorbs completely into the skin and gives an instant smoothness to the face just like a primer and gives a matte face so yeah the oily skinned ones should not fear on the contrary the dry skinned beauties will have to apply moisturizers as it tends to make the skin slightly dry. It gives a mild tingling sensation, but it’s not bothersome.
Vitamin c tends to make the skin photosensitive so do not forget to apply sunscreen before stepping out else you will end up having sunburns. To avoid any possibility of this, I apply this cream at night and wake up with a glowing and smooth skin which makes my day.
Continuous usage of this cream has made my skin even toned; the pores have reduced not completely but to a great extent. And the best of all ,it has reduced my pigmentation to almost negligible and given a healthy glow to my face
