If you’ve ever searched Sephora for something to get rid of hyperpigmentation, scarring, or dullness on your face, it’s pretty likely your results included at least one product with vitamin C. Of course, the ingredient has long been praised for helping us not get sick when we drink it, but it also helps complexions stay healthy, too. Think of it like a big glass of juice . . . on your face, for your face. And, it’s not just oranges in this magic juice — there are plums, cherries, strawberries, and other vitamin C-rich fruit, too.
Vitamin C can be found in masks and creams (not just that metaphorical face juice), but serums are the most concentrated, and best for spot-targeting relief right on your problem areas. These serums exfoliate dead cells, and leave a brighter, smoother complexion as a result. This ingredient also aids the production of collagen, which is key for skin’s elasticity now and in the future.
We looked through all the vitamin C face serums at Sephora and picked out the very best — and every single one on this list has earned an average rating of at least four stars from other shoppers, so you don’t just have to take our word for it either. Check them out ahead.
