The vitamin C serum that’s sensitive skin-friendly

Here’s what our Review Crew® had to say about this radiance-enhancing formula

BEAUTYcrew Beauty Editor / June 28 2021

The product

When it comes to combating dry and dull winter skin, there’s no better option than a vitamin C serum.

Renowned for its radiance-enhancing and wrinkle-minimising qualities, vitamin C is packed full of antioxidants that not only improve the look and feel of skin but also work to improve skin’s overall health and function. Plus, there’s nothing that pairs better with SPF for an added boost of skin-protecting properties.

The only trouble is, traditionally, highly potent vitamin C formulas can also be highly irritating.

This is not the case for the La Roche-Posay Pure Vitamin C10 Serum, however. Sensitive skin-friendly and packed full of pure vitamin C, salicylic acid and Neurosensine™, this orange-hued wunderkid tackles wrinkles, a loss of radiance and irregular texture for your best skin yet, regardless of what the weather is doing.

Here’s what our panel of Review Crew® testers had to say about this glow-boosting serum.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent La Roche-Posay Pure Vitamin C10 Serum to a panel of women aged 25 to 44 with a lack of radiance and visible fine lines and wrinkles.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about La Roche-Posay Pure Vitamin C10 Serum.

The way it minimised fine lines: Our members were impressed by the visible results they saw from regular application of the serum, saying it helped to minimise their fine lines considerably.

The glow it gave their skin: Those of our reviewers who always suffer with dull skin in winter said they noticed an immediate brightening and glow-inducing effect once they added the serum to their routine.

How gentle the formula was: Those of our members with sensitive skin said that they were surprised to find the formula non-irritating, especially considering other vitamin C serums they’d tried in the past had always left their skin dry, red and irritated.

The verdict

“I was so impressed with this product, and saw an almost instant improvement in the brightness and tone of my skin. I use a La Roche Posay retinol product at night, so after cleansing I used this Vitamin C Serum by rubbing a few drops into my skin. I followed it up with my usual night time moisturiser. I didn't find it irritating or harsh on my skin, and noticed that my skin was getting brighter and smoother over time. I saw an improvement in fine lines and dryness after using it. I would highly recommend this serum to anyone looking to incorporate a Vitamin C product into their routine.”

“I was sceptical about using this at first as I have very sensitive skin especially during the winter but this didn't irritate my skin at all! I've used different vitamin c products and they all tend to be dehydrating but this one was quite the opposite. It's hydrating and makes my skin feel super healthy and glowy. I've got an oily T-zone and dry U-zone but I had days where I would skip my moisturiser because this was enough. I would still recommend using a sunscreen in the morning or if you're not a sunscreen applier (although everyone should be!) apply this at night. You'll start noticing a difference in your complexion after about two weeks (if you're persistent!).”

“The serum has been lovely to use. I apply it once a day and since using it, I have seen a huge difference in my skin. It's a tad thicker in consistency but sinks quickly into the skin. It also doesn't feel uncomfortable under the rest of my skin care and makeup routine. In previous years, as the weather gets colder my skin becomes drier and more flakey and uncomfortable. This product has helped my skin stay clear and glowy during the transition into winter.”
