I have been trying a lot of vitamin c serums lately, which I’ve really been enjoying because I love vitamin c. My skin really responds to it and it has helped brighten my skin so much. I never go out of the house without applying a vitamin c serum (and SPF, of course).
The Strawberry-C Brightening Serum ($42) from Volition Beauty is a vegan and cruelty-free serum that promises to brighten, hydrate, reduce excess oil, and minimize the appearance of redness and fine lines using strawberry fruit and seed extract, kakadu plum, hyaluronic acid, and cucumber fruit water.
This serum brightened my skin and gave me a glow but what sets it apart from the other vitamin c serums that I’ve tried is how it also hydrates my skin. I can cleanse, use this, and then go straight to using my SPF. I have oily skin so having a hydrating serum is very important in my routine. I can just support this with a hydrating primer so it lessens my skincare routine in the morning. I also noticed how, after about a month of use, this also helped a bit with the redness on my skin and has left my skin soft. My skin looks more even and plump after using this.
I would recommend this product to those looking for a hydrating and brightening serum that feels nourishing and soothing to the skin.
