Popular options from The Ordinary, Glow Recipe, Drunk Elephant and more.
If you haven’t used a vitamin C serum as part your skincare routine before, you might be wondering what some of the best options are. We’ve done the research for you as we round up some of the most popular serums (including affordable and high-end picks) that are currently available online.
Vitamin C is a potent natural antioxidant that helps repair damaged skin cells while brightening your complexion. The ingredient is also effective in reducing the appearance of acne thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties, and is known to help even out discoloration or hyperpigmentation on the skin.
For those looking for a budget-friendly option, consider trying The Ordinary‘s Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2%. Infused with 23 percent concentration of pure vitamin C, the product remains completely stable due to the absence of water. Ole Henriksen‘s Truth Serum is another great alternative. Formulated with True-C Complex™, collagen and orange and green tea extracts, this skincare essential gives you a natural glow and offers all-day hydration.
If you’re already an avid vitamin C serum user and would like to try something new, Glow Recipe‘s Pineapple-C Brightening Serum targets dryness and redness. Made with pure pineapple juice, chamomile and hyaluronic acid, the K-beauty brand’s formula helps re-texturize and even out your complexion. Another hydrating product is Drunk Elephant‘s C-Firma™ Vitamin C Day Serum, which is packed with a powerful antioxidant complex of l-ascorbic and ferulic acids that help eliminate dead skin cells.
