You’ve most likely read about the hottest 2018 beauty trends that, not to be dramatic, will probably save your life (and your skin) this year. If you have, you’ll know vitamin C is kind of a big deal right now in both the beauty and wellness industries. It’s not only good for your skin but there are endless health benefits too.
The miracle ingredient has been popping up for a while in skincare, great for its skin brightening, pollution-fighting, and hydrating properties. We’ve taken a look through some of the most well-known brands with a Vit-C serum in their range and decoded them so you can choose which one will be the best benefit to your skin.
Limited to two per customer, this cult-brand favourite is a sell-out favourite for anti-ageing.

It is said to reverse the signs of ageing and contains hyaluronic acid which attracts up to 1000 times its weight in water. If you’re trying vitamin C out for the first time and want to plump up your skin, this is one for you.
