They say there is a day for everything and I guess “they” are right! Today is National Vitamin C Day–who knew? I’ve talked a lot about Vitamin C and how my skin loves it so I thought this was a great time to do a roundup of my favorite Vitamin C products!

Vitamin C is an effective natural antioxidant that brightens and evens skin tone. Its cancer-fighting (antioxidant) properties and its role in collagen production help keep your skin healthy. This is why vitamin C is one of the key ingredients found in many antiaging skin care products. I like it for fading my brown spots from sun damage and brightening my aging skin.

Fresh has several products powered by Vitamin C. I’ve tried the Fresh Vitamin Nectar Antioxidant Glow Water $44 and Fresh Vitamin Nectar Vitamin C Glow Powder $40. The Vitamin Nectar line of products boasts a  vitamin fruit complex blend of vitamins C, E, and B5; citrus fruit extracts; and revitalizing minerals that help revitalize dull skin for a vibrant, healthy-looking glow and soft, smooth texture to #PowerYourGlow. Yes, please!

The Fresh Vitamin Nectar Antioxidant Glow Water has an ultra-fine the mist, is ultra-refreshing and I love to use it as the last step in my routine to set my makeup AND how it smells like fresh oranges!

The Fresh Vitamin Nectar Vitamin C Glow Powder instantly brightens skin and tightens pores with 20% Vitamin C. This 30-second powder-to-foam facial refines your skin’s texture for a healthy, dewy glow.

An old favorite and one I keep coming back to is the Mario Badescu Vitamin C Serum $45. This serum makes my skin feel soft, has improved the texture and has generally evened out my skin tone as well as calmed down the redness in my cheeks. My skin looks clear and bright! I test a lot of skincare products and unfortunately, my use of this serum was interrupted by another product. The good news is that sometimes discontinuing use of a product and then restarting can really point out the effectiveness of the product. Such was the case with Mario Badescu’s Vitamin C serum. After just two days of re-starting the serum my skin had drastically improved and really did look radiant! My skin tone is bright and looks flawless with makeup!

OZNaturals Vitamin C Serum – I’ve also purchased this serum multiple times. You can’t beat it for $19.99! Make no mistake, not all Vitamin C serums are the same. When you purchase OZNaturals Vitamin C serum, you can be assured you are getting pure 20% Vitamin C in the most effective anti-aging serum formulation available.  All antioxidants, including vitamin C, are vulnerable to breaking down when routinely exposed to air and light.  That means you need to choose brands packaged in opaque tubes, air-restrictive bottles, or pumps that help keep their ingredients stable once the product is in use. OZNaturals Vitamin C serum is packaged in a dark glass eye dropper to prevent destabilization of the product.

MyChelle Perfectly Radiant Skin Vitamin C Brightening Collection
contains three best-selling products in special sizes. The kit is a $72 value for only $48! The kit consists of a fruit enzyme cleanser, a Vitamin C serum and a Vitamin C lotion. This system did wonders for my skin and like the others, I’ve repurchased it a few times.

Do you use a Vitamin C serum or lotion? If you use Vitamin C in your skincare please share!

  1. I have come to realize that Vitamin C products are great for my skin. I’m on a no-buy but I broke it to pick up a sampler set of C products. The Fresh sound especially nice.
