What Is The Best Vitamin C Serum

When looking beyond the essentials of a skincare routine, Vitamin C Serums are one of the first products that come to mind.  With a range of benefits thanks to being rich in antioxidants, adding one of these is the easiest way to take your skincare to the next level.  Would you like to know what is the best Vitamin C Serum you can buy now?

Read on to find out more!

Why Use Vitamin C Serums?

We’re used to getting our vitamins through food, but Vitamin C and skin is one of the great combos.

Like oranges and chocolate, or strawberries and cream…ok back on track!

Due to Vitamin C’s ability to help with all sorts of skin concerns (even at concentrations as low as 0.6 per cent), they’re often the first ingredient that comes to mind when we think ofserums.


Benefits of Using Vitamin C Serums

With regular use, you’ll notice:

  • Brighter looking skin
  • More even skin tone
  • Improving dull skin as well as pigmentation
  • Minimised appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improving the appearance of dark spots and acne blemishes
  • Plumper, firmer skin
  • Better hydrated skin

How to Use Vitamin C Serums

While Vitamin C serums are easy to use, here are a few tips to get the most out of them.

Firstly, only use them on freshly cleansed skin.

Secondly, use serums as the first step after a facial cleanse.

Thirdly, wait 20-30 minutes after applying your serum before adding additional skincare to ensure your skin is at optimal pH levels for absorption.  To save time, you can get your skin to the ideal pH level with apH adjusting toner applied before the serum!

What Is The Best Vitamin C Serum?

What Vitamin C Serum is best depends on individual skincare goals and concerns.  Let's have a look at some of our favourites!

NEOGEN Real Vita C Serum

For serious skin brightening and improving the firmness of your skin, look no further than this antioxidant powerhouse containing 22% pure Vitamin C enriched with niacinamide.

What we love about NEOGEN’s Vitamin C serum is that it’s made from Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, one of the most stable forms of vitamin C.  This means that your serum will stay effective for longer, and will also be less sensitive to light and air exposure.

APLB Vitamin C Ampoule Serum

This long-time Style Story favourite contains one of the purest Vitamin C formulations we’ve come across. 

Containing a rich blend of pure L-ascorbic acid, sea buckthorn, niacinamide and more, this ph 5.5 serum improves skin elasticity, skin tone and is great for all skin types.

Innisfree Truecare Vitamin C 20 Ampoule

Innisfree uses 20% pure Vitamin C in this highly concentrated ampoule design to brighten and smooth skin. Perfect for those with dark spots, red spots, and a patchy complexion this serum goes to work.

It improves on the stickiness and oiliness of other Vitamin C serum formulas on the market.

Laneige Radian-C Vitamin Spot Ampoule

Laneige's Radian-C Vitamin Ampoule contains powerful ingredients for a clearer, brighter complexion.

Firstly, 17.6% pure vitamin C works to tone skin. Then, Vitamin C derivatives and niacinamide (Vitamin B3) brighten the complexion.

Radian-C ampoule contains a light, refreshing watery formula. 


Can't Handle Regular Vitamin C Serums?

If your skin is too sensitive for regular Vitamin C serums or you hate how finicky they can be to store, we have the perfect product for you!

This nourishing serum soothes, hydrates and brightens tired skin, as a result restoring it to health.
