Vitamin C skincare is all the rage at the moment, but which are the best vitamin C serums to choose? Find out here.

6 of the best Vitamin C serums on the market... 

Wondering which Vitamin C serum is best? Check out these, they’re some of the most popular among our customers right now…

  1. Vitaskin Vitamin C Collagen Boosting Serum

Starting with a classic vitamin C serum, this collagen boosting product from Vitaskin is a staple to add to your skincare routine.

Expertly formulated with skin-boosting vitamin C and collagen to visibly plump your skin and help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

But this doesn’t just contain vitamin C. It also offers a dose of kiwi extract, sweet orange oils and sea buckthorn – which happens to be a great source of omega 3 oils.

Key features

  • Suitable for vegans
  • 99% natural
  • Contains lemon peel water and sodium hyaluronate

How to apply it: Apply to clean skin. For best results combine with the full Vitaskin Vitamin C range.

What our customers think

Julie – Great on age apots – 5/5 stars
“I have been using this for a year now, and I hadn’t realised just how much my dark spots had faded until I looked back through photos. I use once a day . Highly recommend”

Sashathefiercest – One of the best serums on the market – 5/5 stars

“I have tried so many serums from Dior and Clarins to Boots own and finding one that is packed with nutrients, cruelty free, good for my skin and actually works has been a mission. I buy a lot from Holland & Barrett on subscription and I can’t recall how I stumbled on this but I’m so glad I did! The reviews were good so I thought, yep, let’s try! I’m on bottle 4 now. I’ve never got to 4 bottles of any serum before! This is the one! My skin is soft, glowing, smooth and healthy. I’m 45 and had a couple of dark spots on my fair skin which are fading. Moreover, I’ve always been blessed with a youthful appearance but my partner is 13 years my junior and since using this almost everyone thinks I look younger than him! To have shaved off over 10 years and have great feeling skin, what is not to love about this amazing bottle of magic!”
