Out of all the various serums on the market, I’d say Vitamin C serums involve the most trial and error for the user.
Given the instability of this ingredient, the sometimes strong smell and often associated tingling sensation, discovering the right formula for your skin can be a minefield.
But boy, when you find the right one, Vitamin C really pays off.
Which Product Are We Loving?
This newbie caught me by surprise. I’d heard whispers about it around the office, so I took the plunge and tried it myself. Dermalogica Age Smart Biolumin-C Serum only launched recently and it’s already racking up some seriously good reviews.

What’s In It?
Dermalogica Age Smart Biolumin-C Serum isn’t just a Vitamin C serum, it actually contains some other really important ingredients that make this product a stand-out for me.
The unique formula firstly features an ultra-stable Vitamin C and Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 complex, using advanced technology to deliver more Vitamin C into skin, without irritation. This promotes brighter, firmer, more radiant skin.
Lactic Acid accelerates cell turnover for a smoother and more even complexion, while Sophora Japonica Flower Extract helps to calm the skin with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Chia Seed Oil and Sodium Hyaluronate combine to hydrate the skin at the same time.
