Best Vitamin C serum?
12

OneForTheRoadThen · 19/07/2020 07:58

Hi, any recommendations? I've tried Dermalogica Biolumin Serum which I liked but was too pricy for me to justify really. Also used The Ordinary Vitamin C 23% suspension but it was too gritty (I need to use it in the mornings as I use retinol at night).

Currently using The Ordinary Ascorbic Glucoside Solution 12% but I haven't noticed any difference really and I don't like the way their serums feel on my skin, they always feel a bit sticky.

I don't mind splashing out as long as it lasts a good few months.

I use the ordinary vit c powder mixed into my sunblock every morning. Half a scoops enough.

Oskia Super C capsules are divine, but pricey. They’re oil based and my skin looks immediately better when I use them.

Beauty Pie do a much cheaper dupe which are also lovely.

Superdrug Vitamin C booster serum is a fiver and I really rate it. Good amount of actives for the price.

I use the beauty pie capsules which are pretty nice.

Thank you! Beauty Pie is out of stock at the moment but will try those when they're available. Will pick up the Superdrug one in the meantime.

I've been using the superdrug one, it is the only one I've tried but having gone in skeptical of the whole vit C thing, it does seem to be brightening my complexion after a month of using.

Asda do one for £2.50. Orange tube with a black lid, on the skin care shelf. I like it; it's very soothing on my face.

I like the Body Shop one.

I find all of their other products massively overpriced and generally nothing particularly special, but I do really like this.

I really like the Timeless one.

The Skinceuticals one is really good as well, but it's not that much better than the Timeless one for the extra £££.

I've just started using La Roche-Posay's vit c serum, nice texture and scent.
