Beautycounter’s All Bright C Serum review! Also sharing the benefits of incorporating this 10% blend of vitamin C for overall brighter skin & antioxidant protection throughout your day!
Prior to the launch of Beautycounter’s All Bright C Serum last May, I had never used a vitamin C serum! Because of this, my expectations for this product were pretty low before introducing it into my morning skincare routine. Now, many months later, I can honestly say it’s one of my favorite Beautycounter products & the glow is SO real! Everything about this C Serum is just amazing, from the energizing scent, the fact that it’s packed with antioxidants, the bright yellow packaging, the major skincare benefits, & the instant radiance boost it brings to your skin!
All Bright C Serum Review
Q: What are the benefits of using a vitamin C Serum?
A: I personally have loved incorporating the All-Bright C-Serum into my morning routine. After I apply it, I can instantly tell that my skin looks more healthy, bright, & radiant. I have also battled hormonal acne over the past few years & have noticed significant improvement to my red acne scars that remain after breakouts. Since my skin is so fair, I’m really prone to left over redness & tend to scar easily. Using this C Serum in the morning & the Overnight Resurfacing Peel at night has been transformative for my skin.
Benefits of Beautycounter’s C Serum:
- A unique blend of two ultra-stable forms of vitamin C delivers a supercharged 10% potency that instantly brightens your skin & helps reduce the appearance of existing dark spots.
- This C serum absorbs quickly into your skin allowing other products such as moisturizer to be layered on top.
- Leaves skin glowing, delivers an instant radiance boost, & helps to even skin tone!
Clinically proven to*:
- Even skin tone
- Improve skin radiance/brightness
*After 8 weeks, 100% of users on a 32-subject clinical study said the C serum brightened their skin. 94% of users said it reduced the appearance of dark spots. 97% said skin looked more youthful & 94% of users said their skin tone looked more even!
Q: What skin type is this serum for?
A: Beautycounter’s All Bright C Serum is perfect for all skin types & skin tones!
Q: How is the All Bright C Serum different from other vitamin C serums on the market?
A: In my opinion, Beautycounter’s C Serum is the best vitamin C serum on the market right now. Beautycounter’s C Serum contains two forms of Japanese vitamin C for an ultra-potent & stable 10% blend! They use 5% bis-glyceryl ascorbate & 5% tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, which are effective at lower doses. Vitamin C can be very unstable, especially in its purest form, L-ascorbic. This means most vitamin C serums on the market lose stability & effectiveness quickly due to L-ascorbic being present within the formula. Using a vitamin C serum that has lost its effectiveness is essentially tossing money down the drain, so stability is key! There’s also a very fine line of including too much or too little vitamin C. Too much vitamin C (around 20%) may cause skin irritation & too little (around 5%) won’t deliver performance wise. Beautycounter’s 10% vitamin C blend really falls in the sweet spot of being effective & non-irritating!
This C-Serum is also formulated without the use of 1,800+ harmful or questionable ingredients. It’s also formulated without any dyes or synthetic fragrances. As with every other product, Beautycounter rigorously screens & tests each formula to ensure it’s safe for human health!
Finally, Beautycounter’s vitamin C serum is potent but doesn’t cause irritation. Most brands that offer vitamin C serums, sometimes try to up the percentage of the vitamin C present in the serum to make up for the fact that it might lose it’s stability. Not only does this not work, but a high level of vitamin C can be extremely irritant to the skin. Beautycounter has truly mastered the balance of potency, effectiveness, & zero irritation with this All Bright C Serum.
Q: What are the key ingredients & benefits of this C Serum?
- Vitamin C – Brightens skin, helps reduce the appearance of dark spots, while also helping to increase natural collagen production!
- Turmeric – This antioxidant superstar helps improve overall radiance & the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles!
- Camu Camu Extract – This powerful antioxidant helps brightens, evens skin tone, helps reduce the appearance of dark spots, & delivers an instant boost of radiance!
Q: How often should you use a vitamin C Serum?
A: You can apply Beautycounter’s All Bright C Serum every morning!
Q: At what point in your skincare routine do you apply the C Serum?
A: You’ll want to apply your C Serum as your “treatment” step after you cleanse & tone your skin in the morning. If you are using another serum, apply that one first & then apply the C Serum. I love applying my Countermatch Adaptive Moisture Serum first & then going in with my C Serum. After my C-Serum absorbs into my skin, I complete my routine with a moisturizer, eye cream, or SPF if I’m wearing it! The point of applying this serum in the morning is so it’s able to provide your skin with antioxidant protection throughout the day!
Also, please note that even if you aren’t using all Beautycounter products, you can still incorporate this C Serum into your routine!
Q: Will this C Serum make my skin sensitive to the sun?
A: No, this C Serum will not make your skin sensitive to the sun. If you do have sensitive skin, it’s always recommended that you perform a small patch test first. There is also no photosensitivity with this serum either.
Q: How does the C Serum compare to Beautycounter’s Brightening Oil?
A: This C Serum contains 10x more vitamin C in comparison to the #1 Brightening Oil. An oil is to be used as an additional layer of hydration within your routine or to add in radiance, while a vitamin C serum is a true treatment product that does much more than just hydrating the skin. You can definitely use both together – I do! I love using my Brightening Oil as the last step in my morning routine mixed in to my moisturizer OR patted on top!
Q: What other Beautycounter products compliment this serum?
Q: What is the price point of this serum?
A: The All Bright C Serum costs $82 USD | $110 CAD. One of the leading vitamin C serums on the market is priced at $190 USD & but contains L-ascorbic which poses the risk of the product losing its stability, therefore resulting in money down the drain! Not only that, but it also contains propylene glycol which is on Beautycounter’s Never List.
