Beautycounter Vitamin C Serum Review
The following post may contain affiliate links of products I use and love. You can read my full disclosure here.
Could your skin use a boost? Maybe a little brightening and evening out? I totally feel you. I was able to turn my lackluster skin around with the Beautycounter Vitamin C Serum. Seriously! I was skeptical at first, but I’m loving the results. Keep reading to learn why your skin might need a little TLC in the form of Vitamin C!
Why Vitamin C?
Vitamin C is one of those topical ingredients that I was always afraid to use. I knew that it was supposed to be good for dark spots, hyperpigmentation and melasma, but I was always hesitant to stray from my facial oils. I finally took the leap and I’m so glad I did!
Vitamin C is the holy grail when it comes to skin health, anti-aging (or better with age) and evening out skin tone. It also gives your skin a nice, dewy glow!
A few facts about Vitamin C:
- defends against environmental stressors known to cause dark spots
- helps support your skin’s natural production of collagen (aka plumpness)
- protects against free radicals (free radicals speed up the aging process)
That was enough to get me on board! As soon as I started using a vitamin c serum, I noticed my skin had a dewy glow. I haven’t been using it long enough to see if it’s going to get rid of my remaining melasma, but the dewy glow is enough for me to keep using it!
Is Beautycounter’s Vitamin C Serum effective?
Since I am a Beautycounter consultant, I naturally gravitated towards their All Bright C Serum. I love the fact that it has Tumeric Root Extract in it. Tumeric is an antioxidant rockstar that helps even skin tone and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
What also drew me to Beautycounter’s Vitamin C Serum is that it contains a blend of two incredibly stable forms of Vitamin C. Did you know Vitamin C can be really unstable? That is why a lot of Vitamin C serums aren’t very effective.
Beautycounter’s All Bright C Serum contains an ultra-stable 10% dose of Vitamin C in the form of Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (reduces appearance of dark spots) and Bis-Glyceryl Ascorbate (moisturizes while packing in the antioxidants).
A lot of Vitamin C serums out there can be really irritating to the skin – especially when the concentration is too high. I have found that Beautycounter’s Vitamin C serum definitely does not irritate my skin, in fact, my skin feels extra soft and moisturized!
How to use Beautycounter’s Vitamin C Serum
I’ll give you a little run down on how I use Beautycounter’s Vitamin C Serum.
In the morning I apply a few drops of jojoba oil on damp skin and I let that sit for a few minutes. Then I apply a pea-sized drop of the All Bright C Serum and I let that soak in for another few minutes while I brush my teeth. The last step is to apply sunscreen. Now, I don’t know if this is a must BUT I always apply sunscreen over the vitamin C serum. The sunscreen I’m loving lately is the Biossance Squalane and Zinc Mineral Sunscreen.
It doesn’t leave a white cast and goes on super smooth.
Should you use a Vitamin C Serum everyday?
I personally don’t use Beautycounter’s Vitamin C Serum every day, but that’s just me. I use it maybe 3-4 times a week and I just let my skin breathe on the other days.
I know lots of women who use it every day with amazing results. In fact, after about eight weeks of daily use, 94% said it reduced the appearance of dark spots! Like I mentioned earlier, it’s not at all irritating, so if it’s something you want to incorporate into your daily morning skincare routine go right ahead!
