Vitamin C Invigorating Skin Booster

Vitamin C Invigorating Skin Booster

This is actually my very first vitamin C serum. It is one of those ingredients that everybody was talking about but I didn't see it as a necessary step in my routine. Last year I got it as a gift on my birthday and have slowly but surely been using it up and applying it during my morning routine. 

This Vitamin C serum from Superdrug claims to "detoxify" the skin, and leave it brighter and softer. It is infused with vitamin C and Kakadu Plum & Goji Berry extracts (Kakadu Plum has the highest known ‭concentration of Vitamin C of any food on the planet and ‭Goji Berry is known to induce calm, ‭wellbeing and energy).

There isn't that much information about this serum on the packaging or the website but it is common knowledge that Vitamin C can help brighten the skin, fade hyperpigmentation and increase collagen production.

While this serum only uses the vitamin C derivative Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate at a concentration of 1%, I did notice it helped fade some hyperpigmentation from both breakouts and sun damage. The effect was more visible on the more recent pigmentation though. 

The product also mentions that it leaves skin softer and it is definitely noticeable at the end of the day when I wash my face and feel my skin being softer. The serum is also lightly moisturising thanks to the glycerin in the formula, however it does not feel heavy or sticky on the skin.

Vitamin C serums can be irritating in some cases, but as this product uses a derivative instead of pure vitamin C it is more gentle and I believe it would be suitable for more sensitive skin types. 

The Vitamin C Invigorating Skin Booster is very affordable, costing only £4.99 at Superdrug so it is a great option if you are looking to start using a vitamin C serum.

I would definitely recommend the Vitamin C Invigorating Skin Booster if you are looking for a gentle brightening serum that won't break the bank.
