Lately I’ve been a tad obsessed with all skincare products containing vitamin C. This magical antioxidant helps brighten skin, boost collagen production, and smooth the appearance of uneven skin, fine lines or wrinkles. When paired with extracts like white birch or licorice root, vitamin C is an incredibly effective, super-powered dark spot corrector, too. Since I’ve struggled with bouts of finicky skin and hyper-pigmentation over the last year or so, I’ve been on a mission to find the best vitamin C formulas. The latest that I can’t wait to test-drive? Peter Thomas Roth’s Camu Camu Power C x 30 Vitamin C Brightening Serum.
Camu Camu (a.k.a. myrciaria dubia) is an Amazonian berry that has extremely high vitamin C content—around 30 times more per ounce than an average orange. So you can see why a serum made with the fruit would grab my attention. What I love about this formula, other than its complexion refining properties, is that a tiny drop really goes a very long way—you don’t need much to cover your whole face. Plus, it sinks into skin quickly and doesn’t leave any sticky residue.
What’s your favorite vitamin C product of the moment?
