Best Vitamin C Serum for Oily Skin
A super-potent vitamin C day serum packed with a powerful antioxidant complex, essential nutrients, fruit enzymes, and a chronopeptide. Formulated without parabens, sulfates, phthalates, or fragrances.
This product has a not-so-pleasant smell. The good news is, it doesn't linger for long. And, it doesn't have any harmful fragrances so you can feel good about that.
Who's it for? This Vitamin C serum is formulated with ascrobic acid, which provides the best results for those with oily skin. Those with sensitive or dry skin should consider another serum with sodium ascorbyl phosphate which is less irritating.
Texture and application: The Drunk Elephant C-Firma Day Serum has a lightweight texture that soaks in and dries quickly after applying. The runny consistency is smooth and glides over your skin with ease. It doesn't feel sticky at all, which is a good thing when you want to use it during the day. This product has no added fragrance too, so any scent you may smell is completely natural from the products.
The Drunk Elephant bottle has a pump, which is nice for controlling the amount that comes out. Unfortunately it is made out of plastic, which isn't the best for protecting the serum. The good news is it's not transparent so light can't get through.
Ingredients: The Vitamin C in this formula is in the form of L-ascorbic acid which is the purest form. And, it has 15% of it. Only highly concentrated formulas with 10% or more are effective, so this one is legit. On top of that, the C-Firma has a PH level of 3.3. For Vitamin C serums to penetrate the skin effectively they need to have a PH level lower than 3.5%.
Other main ingredients in this product include pumpkin ferment and pomegranate extract that dissolve the dead skin cells. Rest assured, there are no parabens, sulfates, phthalates, or fragrances to be found either.
Price: The $80 price is high for 1 fluid ounce, but this one is totally worth it. Not to mention, a little goes a long way. One pump of product is more than enough to cover your entire face. So, it will last you several months or more.
