We all know that Vitamin C is an integral step in any anti-aging skincare regimen. And one of the top questions we get at Gorgeously Green is, “What’s your favorite budget-friendly Vitamin C serum?” Because there are serums on the market that can break the bank (and not have a massive impact on your skin, to be quite honest). I am so glad to have a new go-to recommendation for an affordable Vitamin C serum – the Brightening Vitamin C & Ferulic Acid Serum by Acure.
I’ll start here: I got this product at Target! Yes! That Target. Of course, I love a trip to a fabulous skincare retailer, but these days, I’m finding more and more incredible products at stores like Target, and thank goodness! It makes it easier to stock up when you run out of product (no more special trips), but it means you’re getting great bang for your buck!
As with all Vitamin C products, quality starts in the packaging. Vitamin C can oxidize quickly, and then the product isn’t worth a penny. So when you’re shopping for a Vitamin C serum, look for opaque packagings, like Acure. They nailed it.
And, of course, it wouldn’t be a Sophie Uliano review without commenting on the scent profile of the product. In short, it’s divine. Think citrus meets tropical with gorgeous notes of pineapple extract and papaya. Frankly, I credit this product with getting me through a very long winter because every use took me to a sunnier mindset.
I love that this product is called a “brightening” product because that’s precisely what it does. I saw quite a difference after just a few uses – my skin went from rather dull to lustrous. And this product sits gorgeously under moisturizers and makeup. It’s incredibly lightweight, and it absorbs quickly into your skin — a total win from top to bottom.
After my morning and evening cleansing routine, I used it twice a day. One or two pumps applied to my face, neck, and decolaté made a huge difference in my routine.
This is a skincare must-have for anyone looking to up their anti-aging regimen. Click here to shop Acure today!
