Vitamin C is one of my favorite ingredients in skincare, without a doubt. Not only is it one of the most effective antioxidants, but it can also provide a gentle exfoliation to achieve a luminous skin, reduce spots and improve tone and texture. In this case, we find a serum that contains 10% of vitamin C and a pH of 5.5 (specifically, among its ingredients we find ascorbic acid, the most effective form of vitamin C). Being a low concentration of vitamin C, I will focus on this product as an antioxidant serum, designed to combat the effects of free radicals, thus preventing premature skin aging.

When they contacted me from La Roche-Posay to try this serum I was really excited. I had been wanting to try it for a long time and, after the summer, I wanted to use vitamin C progressively (you know that it is better to start with products with a lower concentration and gradually increase it so that the skin adapts to use it). As I mentioned on other occasions, I prefer not to use products with vitamin C during the summer, although if they have a low concentration, you do not abuse them, and you protect yourself correctly from the sun, you can continue using it.

The Moisturizer - REVIEW: La Roche-Posay Pure Vitamin C10The first thing that catches the attention of the product is the packaging. I received it in a cardboard box with a very careful presentation. When opening the container, which is a glass dropper, I found a small problem that has been recurring for the entire time that I have used the product: the dropper tube fails to take the product well, so it spills quite easily (even without applying any pressure). This was very uncomfortable for me, but I think once they solve it, the experience will improve a lot. In general, as I commented in my previous post on vitamin C, products with vitamin C are better when they come in containers that protect them from ultraviolet radiation and air to prevent oxidation, so perhaps a change of packaging would be a good idea.

The serum has a dense and thick texture, the sensation when massaging it on the skin is very pleasant (and that I have used it in my morning routines, for which I generally prefer lighter products). Its color is a soft orange tone, but during the month and a half – two months that I have used it it gradually oxidized until it had an almost brown color.

Among the ingredients of this Pure Vitamin C10 serum we find ascorbic acid, as I have already mentioned, the most studied and potent type of vitamin C. In addition, it also contains salicylic acid (BHA), a great ingredient when it comes to improving the tone and texture of our skin, providing an exfoliation at the surface level and inside the pores. This serum contains perfumes.

As I mentioned before, the low concentration of vitamin C in this serum makes it an antioxidant solution, and in that sense I consider it to have been an effective product. I have had the feeling that my skin was brighter, but I’m not sure I can blame it exclusively on this product. On the other hand, considering its price, I think there are other cheaper antioxidants that can give us an equally positive result. In any case, if you are looking to start using vitamin C, it may be a good option.

 

HOW TO USE: 

As I said, this serum has a relatively low concentration of vitamin C, so I prefer to use it after cleansing and toning, just before moisturizing. I’ve been using it in my morning routines, so, as you know, you’ll have to finish the routine with a good sunscreen.
