Best Vitamin C Serum Splurge
A daytime vitamin C serum that delivers advanced environmental protection and improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reverses loss of firmness, and brightens skin's complexion.
This serum dries somewhat tacky and stays sticky on the skin. So, it's best to use at night when you are not planning on wearing makeup.
Who's it for? This intensely effective Vitamin C serum is made for those with normal to oily skin. Because the formula has L-ascorbic acid, it will most likely be too irritating for those with sensitive and dry skin.
Ingredients: The Skinceuticals formula is so effective, they actually have a patent on it. What we do know, is that it is water based, has 15% Vitamin C in the form of L-ascorbic acid, 0.5% Ferulic acid, and 1% Vitamin E. Other main ingredients include glycerin and hyaluronate. Rest assured, there are no parabens, dyes, or fragrances to be found.
This product has no added fragrance so, unfortunately it doesn't smell like roses. In fact, some say this product has a metallic smell to it.
Texture and application: The Skinceuticals Vitamin C serum is a lightweight, oil-free, smooth serum. Once absorbed, the Vitamin C is effective for 72 hours. Now that's a dream.
It comes in an amber dropper bottle that is made of pure glass. We wouldn't expect anything less from Skinceuticals.
Price: It's hard to find a Vitamin C serum that actually works miracles. So we think for a best-selling product that does just that, it's worth every penny. Not to mention, this product is effective for so long, you only need to apply it once a day.
