Does anyone else just love vitamin c serums in your skincare routine? It gives you such a beautiful glow… you really just cannot beat it!

For me Vitamin c is at the top of the pile.

Vit C serums are not new to the skincare game, but they are still at the top of the skincare game! Yes, there are a lot of new skincare ingredients that deliver great benefits to the skin, but vitamin C is one of the most potent serums available. This is because it deals with a multitude of skincare concerns such as dullness, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, inflammation. Plus apart from its ability to give you a glow, it is also a potent antioxidant, which means it helps to neutralize free radicals like pollution and sunlight.

Why Vitamin C? Here are some quick benefits…

  • It’s hydrating and decreases trans epidermal water loss. It allows your skin to help retain moisture better!
  • Vitamin C can help fade pigmentation and smooth the skin’s surface to reduce dullness. Giving your skin a healthy glow!
  • Vitamin C has anti-inflammatory properties meaning it can help minimise redness on the skin.
  • It has been shown to delay melanin production, This means it can help fade hyperpigmentation and dark spots and lead to a more even-toned complexion.
  • It also boosts collagen production, firming the skin.
  • It also protects against sun damage due to the high level of antioxidants

Personally I’ve used vitamin c on and off for the last 7 or 8 years… here are the ones that I use on repeat.


Odacité Vitamin C and E and Hyaluronic Acid Brightening Serum

Everything your skin needs for daily glow and hydration is here in this multitasker from Odacite. Encapsulated Vitamin C which reduces risks of irritation – plus vitamins A, B, D & E and last but by no means least hyaluronic acid in a milky serum formula that leaves your skin just as you want it – radiant & hydrated.

Medik8 Super C Tetra

This lush serum contains tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, a form of vitamin C. This is a stabilised modification of ascorbic acid (the purest form of vitamin C) that is gentle on the skin yet proven to deliver visible results.

It’s lightweight with a lovely silky texture and it’s easily absorbed. Love how it leaves the skin with a soft glow with a light citrus fragrance

Evolve organic beauty bio retinol +c booster  

This is not a serum or an oil…it is a booster that can be mixed with your other favourite products  or used on its own before any other products. This golden elixir combines the power of vitamin c and nature’s answer to retinol …Bakuchiol.

I’ve really enjoyed using this because it has a lovely silky texture that has a lovely affinity with the skin gliding on, sinking in as if it’s what your skin was waiting for. I love that it leaves the skin silky and soft with a subtle glow and with consistent use the glow continues. This combines well with other products so there is no pilling.

Buttah Vitamin C Serum

I am loving this offering from Buttah Skin! It utilises ferulic acid which is an antioxidant known for its ability to boost cell turnover. It also contains grapeseed oil, chamomile and green tea. This brand is focused on melanin-rich skin which benefits from using vitamin C! Vitamin C is great for reducing inflammation, provide natural, mild exfoliation and brighten the skin. This serum delivers glow, without any irritation… addicted!

This silky serum scores extra wow points because it comes in an opaque bottle that protects the serum from the effects of light and it comes with a press and twist lid.
