Vitamin C Products Worth Trying

In our recent blog post, we broke down the various types of L-ascorbic acid products you can find on the market. Here are some products and chemists' pro-tips to help guide you find your vitamin C holy grail.

KLAIRS | Freshly Juiced Vitamin C Drop
5% L-Ascorbic Acid with soothing support ingredients like Centella Asiatica. Great for beginners!
TIMELESS | 20% Vitamin C + E Ferulic Acid Serum
Great budget friendly dupe of the OG CE Ferulic formula
PAULA'S CHOICE | C15 Super Booster
CE Ferulic combination with much less "penetration enhancer" ingredients than the original formula. Good for those that find Timeless or Skinceutical's just a tad irritating.
SKINCEUTICALS | C E Ferulic With 15% L-Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C Serum 30ml
Tried-and-true OG CE Ferulic formula that has been tested time and time again in various clinical studies.
NEOGEN | Real Vita C Powder Lemon
17% L-AA powder makes this a gentle introduction to vitamin C powder formulas
PHILOSOPHY | Turbo Booster C Powder
99.8% highly refined vitamin C powder. Use a heaping spoonful with the included spoon to mix with your seru.
BEAUTYSTAT | Universal C Skin Refiner
Format that suspends L-Ascorbic acid in oil including occlusive gold standard Petrolatum. Can double as an antioxidant moisturizer in a pinch!
Another "suspension" type formula. We would recommend this one over the 30% version that is much grittier and more irritating.
A simple pure L-AA powder. Pure L-AA powders like this one can be very acidic when mixed with your serum, so start with just a small pinch
