The product

As far as brightening goes, there’s no better skin care ingredient for the job than vitamin C.  

Swisse Vitamin C 10% Brightening Booster Serum promises impressive brightening effects without the threat of potential irritation typically experienced with traditional formulas. The radiance-enhancing pick tackles dull skin, dark spots, uneven skin tone, pigmentation and premature ageing. Niacinamide and vitamin E sit alongside the powerful brightening agent to help hydrate and refine the complexion further.  

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

The panel

Beauty Crew sent Swisse Vitamin C 10% Brightening Booster Serum to a panel of women aged 18 to 40 with dull skin, uneven skin tone and pigmentation.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about the Swisse Vitamin C 10% Brightening Booster Serum

The way it brightened skin: Review Crew® members really liked that the serum did exactly what it said it was going to do and brightened their skin to reveal a more radiant and glowy complexion.  

The non-irritating vitamin C-infused formula: A number of our members loved that they were able to reap the benefits of vitamin C without having to worry about it irritating their skin in the process.  

How hydrating it was: Thanks to additional ingredients such as niacinamide and vitamin E, reviewers were able to enjoy a healthy dose of hydration when they used the serum.

The verdict

“After using the serum for a couple of weeks, I have noticed my skin looking more hydrated and looking less dull. I have not noticed any irritation while using the serum. This is a great value serum that is super easy to add into my routine, leaving my skin feeling hydrated and working to protect my skin from free radicals while reducing the appearance of dark spots, uneven skin tone, and pigmentation. The pump bottle also means that I am not constantly opening up the bottle which would allow more oxygen to mix with the product. I would recommend this to anyone looking for an affordable brightening serum to add to their routine.”

“I think this is the perfect skin care product to add to a face care routine as it provides great results! I used it after washing my face in the mornings and after applying a toner, once a day, which I found to give the best results. The serum has a nice, appealing smell and feels soothing on the skin, while also not feeling too oily or greasy. It doesn’t irritate my skin at all and instead makes my face look brighter and fresher. The serum also helped with minimising acne and redness. I think the item is great value at its price and would highly recommend it if you have slight acne or wish to have a brighter look.”

“I've been using this serum for the last couple of weeks and I've really been enjoying it. I normally use cosmeceutical vitamin c serums and I was really impressed with this budget option. The packaging is great and easy to use. I like a pump applicator over a pipette. It's a good consistency that works well with other hydrating serums. I really like that this is 10% as it has enough vitamin c to make a difference, but its not too high that it's irritating. I really like that it also contains vitamin e and niacinamide to help stop any irritation. While I haven't been using it long enough to get serious results, I've noticed my skin looks more radiant and hydrated. I would buy another bottle. I love that Swisse is often on sale so you can pick this up for under $15.”
